-Trademarks: The brand name and logo of the sports shoe manufacturer may be protected by trademarks to differentiate their products from those of other manufacturers.
-Industrial Designs: The aesthetic appearance or unique design of the sports shoe may be protected by an industrial design to prevent unauthorized copying of its appearance.
