Christian Louboutin's lawyers are in the process of appealing Judge Victor Marrero's decision to deny a preliminary injunction against YSL for selling red-soled shoes, WWD reports. Meanwhile, YSL's lawyers are moving to have Louboutin's trademark cancelled entirely, a step that Judge Marrero implied they should take, stating in his ruling that "Louboutin is unlikely to be able to prove that its red outsole brand is entitled to trademark protection."
