Alternatively, AirWair is asking for $1million in damages. The company is also requesting that Chinese Laundry cover attorney’s fees and other legal expenses.

This isn’t the first time AirWair has taken a rival footwear company to court.

To stop Vans Inc. from selling shoes it claimed used its trademark designs, AirWair took similar action. In July, a California federal judge denied Vans’ request for a dismissal.

AirWair has also battled with Skechers over sole designs.
