Crocs Inc. is suing Evacol, a Colombian shoe brand, for patent infringement on its signature lightweight clog design.

The lawsuit was filed on December 23 and seeks to stop the manufacturing, using, marketing, distributing, importing, selling and offering of the infringing footwear, the Sun Sentinal reported.

Diego Maldonado, an Evacol partner, said in a statement to the Sentinal that they will remove any merchandise that infringes on Crocs’ patents. “We are willing to do whatever is necessary to continue operating,” he said.

Evacol was founded in 2006, with a focus on sandals from EVA or foam rubber. The brand opened its first U.S. store in Plantation, Florida at the end of last year.
