Nike Sue Lululemon Over Flyknit Patent Infringement

It’s only been a few days since Nike filed the now-historic lawsuit against BAPE, but Team Swoosh’s legal team isn’t slowing down, and they’ve just filed a suit against Lululemon. Taking the athleisure brand to the New York District Court, Nike are seeking an undisclosed sum in damages and a permanent injunction to avoid future infringement over their patented Flyknit technology.

It’s becoming an annual battle between the duo, as Nike sued Lululemon in January last year over the latter’s Studio Mirror fitness device.

For this latest suit, according to Nike, Lululemon’s Chargefeel Mid, Chargefeel Low, Blissfeel, and Strongfeel silhouettes infringe on their tech, focusing on how the uppers have been constructed. A Lululemon spokesperson has stated that ‘Nike’s claims are unjustified, and we look forward to proving our case in court’. The infringing product from the activewear brand arrived last year to critical acclaim. Since its inception, Lululemon have radically expanded their footwear team, even hiring ex-Nike staff in the process.
