Be honest, how badly do you hate Adidas's orange shackle sneakers?

All over the internet, users are blasting the German sports apparel maker, charging it with racism and slavery allegations. The company defended their designer's unusual choice, saying "the design of the JS Roundhouse Mid is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott's outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery”.

Jeremy Scott also explained his vision had nothing to do with slavery. In fact, Scott explained the controversial orange shackle sneakers were inspired by 1980s doll My Pet Monster.
