The American footwear producer Converse has issued a summons to Coop supermarket chain for allegedly selling bootleg copies of its trainers, reports Swedish Radio Östergötland.

Converse is claiming SEK 2.8 million in damages and has asked a district court to block the company from selling trainers similar to its well-known brand.

When the case was taken last May, the Swedish supermarket chain stated in a press release that they would submit documentation to prove that the footwear on sale was authentic. However Converse claims that no documentation has been provided.

Coop has refused to comment.

“We want to go through the summons first,” the company’s press chief told news agency TT.
