It turns out the latest legal battle between Adidas and Nike isn’t quite over, with the injunction filed by Nike in German courts regarding the production of the adidas Primeknit to be set aside. Nike had originally charged Adidas with patent infringement due the similarities in the design and production between their Nike Flyknit series of runners and adidas’ Primeknit pair that debuted just a few months later. German courts are prepared to set the injunction aside as of November 7th, which should allow Adidas to resume production and theoretically deepen the range going forward. Hit the jump with us to see Adidas’ official statement on the matter and let us know what you think of this latest development.


Adidas statement
Adidas vigorously denies the alleged patent infringement. We will continue to aggressively protect our intellectual property rights, including through the conclusion of this interim injunction proceeding as well as in a formal infringement case

i mean obviously the nike version was the original, but how can you copyright knit material? that would be like saying two different manufacturers can't make a plain black sweater

No contest. The flyknits are well known original concepts.  Sneakerheads know that everything thereafter are perpetrators
