The LL International Shoe Company (dba DaDa) has hailed Nike's counterclaim to a lawsuit filed over allegations of copying the new Nike Shox technology as an opportunity for the companies to settle their differences. In a statement issued by LL International, company president Lavetta Willis, said: "It is an opportunity for both parties to settle our differences. It is clear to us now what Nike's position is, and although we disagree, we are optimistic that we can resolve our issues in a timely manner. We will proceed with launching the Draulic's platform in July."
