“The Lam wedge sandals are of a popular design type that has been used by numerous manufacturers for many decades. There is nothing iconic about the appearance of the Lam sandal,” a representative from Marc Fisher told WWD. “The Ivanka Trump sandals prominently display the Ivanka Trump name, and there can be no confusion as to the source of the Ivanka Trump sandals. Therefore, Marc Fisher Footwear, the licensee of the Ivanka Trump brand, strongly denies Lam’s claims.”
The strong words come on the heels of a cease-and-desist letter that Lam’s attorneys sent out Tuesday regarding Trump’s Cadie wedge sandal.
The letter, which claimed that Trump “blatantly and intentionally copied” Lam’s designs, demanded that the Cadie wedge be pulled off the market within seven business days.
Lam’s counsel, E. Cooke Rand, of Rand Rosenzweig Radley & Gordon, also asked for information on past and future sales of Trump’s wedge, including accounting records of all sales.
