Cancelled: Adidas ‘Shackle’ Sneakers Cause Controversy Over Slavery Symbolism

 

Adidas has canceled plans to sell the Jeremy Scott shoes and 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.”
