Just a week ago I posted the Jeremy Scott x Adidas Fall Collection. In that collection a pair of sneakers with shackles was featured in the look book. The shoe has caused a lot of controversy tho, since it’s images hit the internet. Adidas is now under fire for the design and has pulled the sneaker from their August release and issued the following statement:
[The sneaker] â€œis nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scottâ€™s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery. 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.
