Nike Claims StockX Sold Them Bootlegged Kicks, StockX Responds


Many sneaker heads will hop on StockX to find sneakers. But there is a back and forth situation going on between Nike and StockX. Nike claims the reselling website StockX was selling unauthorized NFT’s of Nike sneakers and even hit them with a lawsuit. And now, Nike said StockX is selling bootlegged sneakers. Bloomberg reports Nike said they purchased some of their own shoes from the website that were listed as authentic, and the 4 pair of sneakers they received were fake. StockX is now responding to those claims, saying don't believe what Nike is claiming. According to the StockX site, the company said, “We take customer protection extremely seriously, and we’ve invested millions to fight the proliferation of counterfeit products that virtually every global marketplace faces today." They added, “Nike’s latest filing is not only baseless but also is curious given that their own brand protection team has communicated confidence in our authentication program, and that hundreds of Nike employees – including current senior executives – use StockX to buy and sell products.” It seems like this battle may continue.
