Sorry, Bootleggers — The Air Jordan 1 Is Now An Officially Registered Trademark
 

 
As early as the conception of the BAPE STA, Nike has fought tooth and nail to maintain the integrity of their most iconic silhouettes. But even today, we still see numerous “homages,” either from the aforementioned or relatively newfound labels like Hender Scheme, Warren Lotas, and the droves of IG/Youtuber start-ups.

All that will soon change, however, as the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office have granted Nike official registration certificates for the trade designs of three of their most iconic models: the Air Jordan 1, Air Jordan 1 Low, and Air Jordan 1 Low SE.

This comes hot off the heels of their recent lawsuit with Warren Lotas, which dealt a blow to the designer’s interpretation of the Dunk Low. This also instilled fear in the creators offering similar product — e.g. Fugazi, Orée, and the like. Now armed with the patent, Nike Inc. has plenty of ammunition to go after bootleg sneakers in the future if there is no visible attempt at trying to change the form itself.

As for what this means for bootlegs hereafter is hard to say. Will these brands go after different icons or will they cease entirely? Only time will tell.

Lol resellers made the rep market what it is today. Nike has only themselves too blame for making small batches of their jordans.

Nike need to just let them live. None of them can compete with any Jordan 1s anyway. That sh*t does not threaten their sales.

Kiy ain’t tripping he probably made a couple M’s already from the shoe so call it a spade and move on to the next project.

I’m just glad they put the trademark on before Omi In The Hellcat fat a*s put out his off brand Kiy shoes

Bootlegging has always been illegal, so this law does nothing.

This is for companies like Adidas, or Reebok who try to make shoes that look similar.

It makes sense why though.these asian factories make theses shoes for nike anyway so might as well make extra money on the side.

Good for them but butter doesn't mean anything. This will only effect legitimate sneaker makers that many copy the AJ1 style and likeness.

This will do nothing to stop counterfeiters from knocking off the shoes Nike produces.

Besides, as long as Nike and others continue to outsource the manufacturing of their products, bootleggers will continue to do what they do.

I don’t really like his personality never met him but they way he comes off on IG and talks to his followers/customers have been off putting to me

And he’s coming out with too many versions of those sneakers... watering down his brand

It was cool with the OG colors... but I seen him post some shoes that the lightning bolt lights up on some LA Gears sh*t lol
