Jeremy Scott’s ‘Shackle’ Sneakers Not To Be Sold

Adidas issued an apology on their Facebook page yesterday after they received a lot  of negative comments regarding the sneakers they produced with designer Jeremy Scott. The shoes, titled the JS Roundhouse Mids, drew controversy because they had handcuffs — or, as some believed, “shackles” alluding to slavery — attached to the heels. The photo caption on Adidas’s Facebook page stated, “Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?”

Adidas released the following statement:

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 … We apologize if people are offended by the design and we are withdrawing our plans to make them available in the marketplace.
