Racist overtones aside, it looks fucking awful and I weep for the lower class if this manages to take off like Jordans.


EDIT: Nevermind. It looks like Adidas has already pulled the plug. Provocative as an art piece, stupid as an actual shoe.

yeah man i hate the damn shoe but i have to be real im very curious if people will go off on it or if they will crazily accept it and it becomes popular. youd think its obviously a no but with how crazy people get over sneakers who knows. its like some kind of odd social experiment.

Eh, the look itself is more offensive than any kind of reach you want to take with a slavery comparison. Looks plastic.

See I'm glad somebody else gets it instead of being "herp derp dats racist cuz it haz shackles" Get over it already and quit bitching about slavery. Yes it happened and was fucked up but no one is forcing you to buy the shoes if you don't like them. Hell slavery is still around as it is.

He was referring to the public outcry. The sneakers got pulled, because dummies were bitching about slavery. Because the slaves wore designer sneakers...

It's not the sneakers that's the problem, it's because they have chains. Orange chains.

Read the article please.


Adidas pulled the shoes because like everything else in this world a few found a way to tie it back to slaverly and racism. These shoes are ugly but they are no more racist (Offensive) then the nike air's 15 years ago that offended the muslims because "air" supposedly looked like allah

Do slaves wear orange chains in the U.S. today? I'll make sure the next time I see a slave I pay closer attention to his feet.

Those would have come in handy in the early 90s when people were getting killed over shoes. Sure, you'd be dead, but would have the last laugh when the robber couldn't get the shoes off you.

Since these shoes were stopped before they hit the market, does this mean the underage sweat shop workers in Taiwan(or wherever they're made anymore) get a free pair of them and those shackles get used to keep them at their machines?;)

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

See I get Nike and the Back to the Future shoes, but this is ridiculous. What, was some exec at Adidas watching Roots one day and thought "Heeeyyyyy".:roll:

Call them Ankle Necklaces, or "MUBS" (Mad Ups Bands).

Problem solved.

Orange is just one of the colors they use. Helps to lighten the mood and keep the workplace fun.

Which makes sense because that's what the designer quoted as the source of his 'inspiration.' Doesn't look like he altered the original very much.

Even without the chain, those sneakers are still ugly as sin.

But it is still very racist because the ridiculous chains could only mean slavery against black people. :roll:

I thought the car was sexist because only men ever pick the car. I usually have the women use the thimble.

^^^ WTH, easy bro. :lol:

At first glance, i thought they had to be a movie / franchise cross promotion. But i can also see why some people would see it as "Racist"

They look more like Prison inmate shoes to me. Its not like Slaves were the only ones forced to wear chains.

Put another color scheme on it, and there not that bad. Id rock the chain as a hand bracelet. :D
