Cloud Computing: Nike Moves to Trademark the Term “Footware”

Cloud Computing:

As The Fashion Law has pointed out, Nike is seeking to trademark the phrase “Footware.” The term will reportedly be used in an overall branding push for the Oregan-based behemoth’s cutting-edge “smart” footwear.

Shoes like the self-lacing Adapt BB would fall under this terminology, which was covered in the application that Nike submitted to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Note that Nike isn’t registering the phrase wholesale under a class 25 trademark, which would cover all shoes — instead, the footwear goliath’s goal is to use the term to describe specific functionality. According to its trademark application, the trademark will cover, among other things:

Computer hardware modules for receiving, processing, and transmitting data in Internet of things electronic devices; electronic devices and computer software that allow users to remotely interact with other smart devices for monitoring and controlling automated systems … providing temporary use of non-downloadable cloud-based software for connecting, operating, and managing networked payment terminals, entertainment devices, smartphones, lighting systems, HVAC systems, in the internet of things (IoT)

Essentially, the trademark would cover a wide array of features, rather than a solitary design, demarcation or silhouette. Thus, the phrase could be used to brand Nike’s smart footwear in the same way that “Just Do It” brands Nike Sportswear garments and campaigns.

Nike’s original application can be found by searching “footware” on the USPTO’s website, or read the full filing information below.

Elsewhere, we recently took a peek at a forthcoming grey Nike Adapt BB colorway.
