With an upcoming Air Force 1 style similar to the agency’s shipping box, Nike will soon find itself facing legal trouble with the United States Postal Service (USPS).
The shoe that caught the post̵
This week, the Post Office issued a statement stating that it did not receive any taxes on its operating expenses and instead relied on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its daily operations. In addition, they claimed that sales from unauthorized and unlicensed products (such as the “Air Force 1 Experiment”) refused to provide support to the hardworking men and women in the company. The postal service has also challenged the position of sportswear brands in protecting their intellectual property rights, as Nike recently collaborated with rapper Lil Nas X to release a customized Satan-themed Air Max 97, and raised itself against Brooklyn’s collective MSCHF Litigation.
USPS said in a statement: “This is an unfortunate situation. Large brands like Nike actively protect their intellectual property rights and choose to use another brand for their own interests.” I am disappointed by the lack of response to repeated attempts of the plan. The Post Office will take any measures it deems necessary to protect its valuable IP rights.”
At the time of release, Nike has not yet issued any statement regarding the upcoming Air Force 1 experimental version. To read the full description of this shoe from USPS, click here.
