Adidas Cancels Release of “Shackle” Sneakers
The German shoemaker has decided to cancel their “shackle” sneakers after they received a lot of backlash on their Facebook page. The sneakers were part of Adidas’ collaboration with Jeremy Scott. In his defense the designer said that the shoes were inspired by the “My Pet Monster” children’s toy. Adidas released a statement stating that the shoe was in no way inspired by slavery. The huge amount of backlash has led Adidas to cancel production and all plans of releasing the shoes. It’s a shame because without the shackles those sneakers actually look good.

They case was dismissed and the high fashion label was laughed out of the court – and rightfully so.
