Louboutin Challenges Ruling That Lets YSL Sell Red-Soled Shoes

Louboutin SA asked a U.S. appeals court to stop Yves Saint Laurent America from selling red-soled shoes that it claims violates its trademark.

Louboutin requested that the appeals panel overturn U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero’s decision in August rejecting the company’s bid to prevent Yves Saint Laurent from selling shoes Louboutin said were identical to its own. At a hearing following that ruling, Marrero said he would defer deciding whether to cancel Louboutin’s red-sole trademark until the appeals court ruled on the injunction.
