The Adidas Controversy

If you haven't heard, Adidas recently had an uproar over their Jeremy Scott "Shackle" sneakers that were going to be sold in August.  If you haven't seen the shoes, here they are:


People were claiming they were racist because they represented slavery and being "locked up."  Adidas fought back saying the designer (Scott) just has an "outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery."  Well it looks like all of the complaining paid off - they have decided to cancel plans of selling the shoe, stating "We apologize if people are offended by the design and we are withdrawing our plans to make them available in the marketplace."

But you're in luck!  You can buy these other "outrageous and unique" shoes from Jeremy Scott...
