Adidas Springblade Running Shoes
July 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Adidas for, among other things, allegedly misleadingly representing that the Springblade running shoe’s design is a “cutting edge” running shoe technology and provides “explosive” energy returns that would enhance the running experience when, in reality, the shoe does not perform as advertised. (Ruffo et al v. Adidas America, Inc., Case No. 15-cv-5989, S. D. NY.)
