Kushyfoot® Socks, Tights, and Hosiery
January 2015: A class-action lawsuit was filed against Doris Inc. and Gildan Activewear (marketers of Kushyfoot® socks, tights, and hosiery) for allegedly misleadingly marketing Sheer Knee High Socks, Microfiber Crew Socks, Shaping Tights, Rib Tights, and other Kushyfoot® products. Specifically, the complaint claims that the companies misleadingly market the Kushyfoot® products as having a built-in zigzag pattern that “Massages your feet with every step®” when, in reality, the Kushyfoot® products actually feel the same as regular hosiery products. (Wang et al v. Doris Inc., Doris International Inc., Gildan Activewear Inc., and Gildan Activewear USA Inc., Case No. 15-cv-00147, E. D. NY.).
