Actually 'urban' people said it was reminiscent of slavery and there was a backlash forcing Adidas to pull them from distribution.

Probably a collectors item now.

hence my utilization of the word 'urban'...

but seriously... how could they even let this pass the 'design' stage? wouldn't someone even think this has a connotation of slavery or if not slavery at the very least jail.....

I almost think it was a publicity stunt. And now they have some "limited edition" one offs for collectors.

Hahaha, I actually read the story and the designer said it was inspired by "My Pet Monster" ... I guess I'm old enough to remember it:

My Pet Monster... that's what came to mind when I saw those. But whatever the inspiration, I would not wear those.

Even without the shackles the shoes are so-so. Jeremy Scott hasn't produced anything good IMO for Adidas.
