A statement from Christian Louboutin on Zara red soles case
After covering the latest news on the court case between Christian Louboutin and Zara, we have received a statement from Christian Louboutin's press office, stressing that the brand has not lost the right to the world famous red soles trademark:"We would like to clarify that what has been disputed and candeled is only one French registration of the red sole Trademark".
The statement goes on to say:
"Christian Louboutin continues to own valid and enforceable trademark rights in its Red Sole Trademark, including in France itself as well as throughout the world. A number of court decisions have recognized the strong association between Christian Louboutin and the Red Sole Trademark, including in France.
Christian Louboutin will continue to protect and enforce its rights to its Red Sole Trademark which has been its iconic signature for the past 20 years."
The statement makes it clear that the brand have no intention of holding back on challenging those brands who intend to sell red-soled shoes - and we're sure that their seriousness will go a long way towards deterring those that might be tempted to try.
