Adidas Shackle Shoe

I'm sure you have heard about the "Shackle" Adidas shoes that seem to have slavery overtones. Adidas has stopped production of this shoes.
Designed by Jeremy Scott, the JS Roundhouse Mid shoe was originally set to be released in August at the price of $350, the style was initially introduced with the social media marketing slogan, “Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?”

Though the style was originally dubbed the “Handcuff,” it was quickly referred to as the ‘shackle shoe.’

The shoes have created such a stir that Rev Jesse Jackson has spoken out against them saying Adidas has "attempted to commercialize and make popular more than 200 years of human degradation, where blacks were considered three-fifths human by our Constitution is offensive, appalling and insensitive. Removing the chains from our ankles and placing them on our shoes is no progress"
