A win for the sole of a luxury shoe



The Beijing Intellectual Property Court in China this month ruled in favor of luxury fashion designer Christian Louboutin against Guangdong, China-based company Wanlima in a legal battle over its famous red soles, which are trademarked, according to the Fashion Law Blog.

High-end designer brand Louboutin sued Wanlima for selling red sultry-looking heels in several of its stores and at the Beijing New World Center department store, claiming it was a violation of China’s anti-unfair competition law, the blog reported.

According to the court, Louboutin submitted sufficient evidence to “prove that (its) product ‘red sole shoes’ and red sole decoration has a high reputation in the market, has established solid relations with the relevant public and has the distinctive feature of distinguishing the source of the product.”

The court awarded Louboutin the equivalent of US$721,980 in damages and US$64,245 in legal costs and ordered Wanlima to immediately and permanently cease its sale of red-soled shoes.
