Jordan Outdoor Enterprises, the company behind sports outfitter Realtree.com, filed a lawsuit alleging that Kanye West’s Yeezy brand features unauthorized copies of its trademarked tree camouflage prints. The prints in question appear on men’s and women’s pants and shirts, as well as on a pair of women’s thigh high boots from the Yeezy Season 5 collection.

According to the lawsuit, Yeezy reps reached out to Jordan Outdoor Enterprises in 2016 about a collaboration. Communication broke down after Jordan, which has also worked with cult streetwear brand SUPREME in the past, brought up licensing.

The Yeezy brand still went ahead and released a selection of pieces with camo prints, that as Diet Prada points out, were directly lifted from Jordan Outdoor Enterprises.

As of now the camouflage print items are still on sale at major luxury retailers like Far Fetch and streetwear shops like UNKNWN, which was named in the lawsuit.
