Adidas is pulling a controversial shoe design that critics say evokes slavery. The shoes with bright orange shackles that go around the ankles won´t hit stores as previously planned.
The sports brand posted a photo of the shoes on Facebook and received nearly 3,500 comments. Many complained that the strange design by fashion designer Jeremy Scott is offensive and inappropriate.
"We apologise if people are offended by the design and we are withdrawing our plans to make them available in the marketplace," Adidas officially declared.
