ADIDAS SHACKLE SHOES?! SLAVERY STILL EXISTS!

It’s 2012 and slavery still exist smh. This time it is in the form of a shoe! Lol.  I’m not going to lie  the shoe is actually clean until it reaches the point of the ankle where you have these golden slave shackles attached to the shoe.  I love shoes, but this is something different but offensive at the same time.  I mean we are already slaves to society, so now we bring out a shoe to remind us of that lol.  Adidas and eccentric Beverly Hills designer Jeremy Scott are under fire for a new shoe design that critics say calls up painful images of slavery.  The Roundhouse “Handcuff” Mid  comes with a set of plastic shackles, and a tag line on Adidas’ Facebook page strikes a playful tone: “Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?” Are you serious?  The $350 shoe is due to drop in August.  Jeremy Scott wasn’t able to be reached a representative of Scott said, “The design … is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott’s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery.” Well if that’s the case how about Adidas make a pair of matching “Kunta Kinte” socks! Lol.  But hey, it won’t matter if they are released people will still buy them anyway (slaves). So who cares?!
