Adidas Controversial Shoes

Jeremy Scott, the famous American fashion designer, just signed a new style of sneakers for Adidas.The sneakers weren't even available to the general public yet, they were already causing a big fight. TheAdidas Roundhouse Mid “Handcuffs” model feature a retro shape with orange plastichandcuffs that fasten around the ankles. There are some peoplewho think the shoesare offensive and are relating the handcuffs to shackles. That doesn't bring good memories fromthe slavery epoque. What do you think about it?Isit only a "funky"shoe or is it an offensiveone?

Adidas defend the designer:

The design of the JS Roundhouse Mid is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott’s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery. Jeremy Scott is renowned as a designer whose style is quirky and lighthearted and his previous shoe designs for adidas Originals have, for example, included panda heads and Mickey Mouse. Any suggestion that this is linked to slavery is untruthful

They didn't decide if they will be selling the shoes:

Since the shoe debuted on our Facebook page ahead of its market release in August, Adidas has received both favorable and critical feedback. We apologize if people are offended by the design and we are withdrawing our plans to make them available in the marketplace.
