The suit, filed in the United States District Court for the Central District of California, seeks compensatory and punitive damages as well as injunctive relief for infringing on SKECHERS ’ patent and trade dress rights and for unfair competition. The suit states that Reebok is selling the infringing products under the name Reebok Walk Ahead RS.

David Weinberg, Chief Operating Officer of SKECHERS stated : “While we prefer to compete in the market place, Reebok is selling its infringing footwear to SKECHERS wholesale customers and in other sales channels where SKECHERS GO WALK is sold, and we believe this is causing us enormous damage. Considering our investment in SKECHERS GO WALK®, we cannot allow a company the size of Reebok, or any other company for that matter, to infringe on one of our most valuable intellectual properties. We plan on taking similar action against any company that develops any products that infringe on the patents and trade dress of SKECHERS GO WALK as well as our other proprietary product lines, and any retailer that sells Reebok Walk Ahead RS.”

SKECHERS is being represented in the suit by Marshall Lerner of Kleinberg and Lerner in Los Angeles.
