Adidas' signature three stripes are JUST as identifiable as Nike's swoosh, so OF COURSE they'd be pissed if another shoe rips off their symbol!

Adidas AG and Adidas America Inc. have filed a lawsuit against Big 5 Sporting Goods and World Industries for creating/distributing sneaks that bear “confusingly similar imitations of Adidas’ three-stripe mark.”

The athletic clothing MEGA brand is asking for both companies to be permanently enjoined from using their trademark stripes, that all footwear bearing the mark be destroyed, and they want monetary and punitive damages and legal fees.

DAMN. They are super for serious!

We're sure those small, California based companies are feeling Adidas' burn!
