Kanye West Files For Exclusive Rights To “Red October” Trademark

Kanye West seems to be interested in reviving the “Red October” sneaker brand after refiling an application for its exclusive rights. Kanye reportedly tried to trademark the “Red October” brand back in 2013, but it fell through after he apparently failed to complete all the necessary paperwork. If his latest attempt to trademark the brand is approved, Kanye will be allowed to use the “Red October” name on a variety of different clothing, including shoes. Nike released the Air Yeezy II “Red Octobers” in February of 2014 and the sneakers sold out in 11 minutes. Kanye split with Nike in 2013 after he accused them of not paying him royalties for his Yeezy sneakers. He subsequently signed a deal with adidas and has released a number of sneakers and clothing collections with them since.
