Tyga Sued For Selling Knockoff Vans?

T-Raw and MSCHF collaborated on a “Wavy Baby” sneaker earlier this year and they’re being sued by Vans for ripping off their signature sneaker silhouette.

The Tyga-designed skate sneaker made its debut release on Monday (April 18) with a retail price of $220 and according to T-Raww himself, the kicks sold out in just 10 minutes.Prior to the release, a lawsuit was already on their doorstep last week from Vans claiming MSCHF stole elements of their classic Old Skool silhouette.

The colorways are similar but the MSCHF pair uses wavy white lines that resemble more of a reading of someone’s heartbeat on an EKG scan.

According to Hypebeast, the lawsuit claims Tyga/MSCHF committed “trademark infringement, false designation of origin, unfair competition and trademark dilution.”

“MSCHF, in collaboration with [Tyga], has shamelessly marketed the Wavy Baby shoe in a direct effort to confuse consumers, unlawfully siphon sales from Vans, and intentionally damage Vans’ valuable intellectual property rights,” the lawsuit allegedly states. “The Wavy Baby shoe blatantly and unmistakably incorporates Vans’ iconic trademarks and trade dress.”
