design patent added to another's design patent

I have this design patent.  Without saying what it is I can describe it as fitting onto something else.  This something else has its own design patent however once I add my patented design to their patented design looking at it you easily can use title of my patent to describe finished product.
However for company with patent design my design is fitting onto their patent design no way includes words in title description seen in my patent design.  
While I don't have to use their design item I just happen to like it because it will be easy to modify, there is a slight bit of modification involved to accept my design. Though I am making very little change to their design.
So question is.
Can I attach my design to their design and to protect myself make no mention of company brand like saying it is a HuhHuh.  I would just be reselling their design with my design affixed to it.  
An example might be a design patent for a running shoe and I have a design patent for a something fitting to or attaching to a basic running shoe.  I have to buy there running shoes add my design and sell it without saying anything about whose running shoe it is though it might be obvious to anyone familiar with running shoes.  
And my item is not for running shoes.

I suppose it would  be easy to give number however I was thinking an answer could be given without patent number.
And yes I know I'm looking for answer without providing everything that should be in question.
It is a problem.

I solved problem.  
ran a check on Wiscagent
you appear to post a lot here.
So I wrote to webmaster asking how I can send you patent number.
It happens there is a knock off version of design patent I would like to attach my design patent.  Both knock off and designed patent I am told are made in,  you guessed it China!
