How adidas Pissed Off the World

This goes in the file of “oh no they didn’t.” Seriously adidas, what the hell were you thinking?

The shackle shoe. It’s a sneaker with a rubber shackle attached to it.

On the adidas Facebook page they presented an image of the offensive shoe (called the JS Roundhouse Mids) with the caption: “Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?”

Not surprisingly, adidas received some criticism. If the shoe didn’t invoke painful feelings of slavery, it brought up thoughts of prison and bondage.

In the first smart move they made since the inception of this horrible idea for a shoe, adidas apologized and decided to withdraw the shoe from the marketplace.

What do you think? Creative and whimsical? Or disturbing and offensive?
