In-N-Out Sues Puma for Over Their Red-and-Yellow ‘California Drive Thru’ Sneakers https://t.co/tapuVeWdit— People (@people) March 8, 2019
The SoCal-based burger chain In-N-Out is suing popular shoe and clothing brand PUMA for allegedly ripping off its logo and colors with their new Cali-0 Drive Thru sneakers. Released in February as a collaboration with streetwear designer Mike Cherman, the burger chain filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against Puma North America, Inc and Cherman just last week.
“By using In-N-Out’s designs and trade dress, Puma and Cherman intentionally confused consumers for their own benefit and have also created the impression that our marks and unique trade dress are available for public use. We will always vigorously defend our trademarks and the distinctive elements that represent our brand to our Customers.”
PUMA has since removed the shoes off of their website.
