Following word that it would “take whatever actions it deems necessary to protect its valuable IP rights,” the USPS has now announced that it has reached an agreement with Nike over the “unauthorized” Priority Mail-inspired Air Force 1 Experimental.

In an official statement, the United States Postal Service revealed that it will be releasing the shoe with Nike officially.

The U.S. Postal Service and NIKE, Inc. are pleased to announce they have come to a resolution on the upcoming release of Nike footwear inspired by the U.S. Postal Service. The Experimental Nike Air Force 1 footwear are officially licensed by the U.S. Postal Service. Any early images of this shoe were not authorized for release by Nike.

Although no formal details regarding the resolution have surfaced, it is safe to assume that the USPS will be compensated in some way from the proceeds of the release. Back in early April, the postal service spoke out publicly about the inspired shoes and was looking to take legal action to halt Nike’s plans to drop the shoes in the coming months.

There are currently no new release details for the now official Priority Mail-inspired USPS x Nike Air Force 1 Experimental.

For more footwear news, a release date for the Air Jordan 4 “White Oreo” surfaces.
