Take The Shackles Off My Feet….

26 Jun

So I was hesitant writing about these controversy sneakers due to the nature of it and my personal views about them…. But I decided to keep my views separate and really hear from our readers. If you haven’t heard already Adidas was planning to release their newest sneaker the JS Roadhouse Mid a $350 sneaker that bares an all too familiar controversy symbol… Shackles…. The company has received much criticism from civil right leaders such as Jesse Jackson who scrutinize the sneakers depict too much similarity to the shackles  slaves have worn. Adidas has decided to cancel the release of the sneakers. What are your opinions about these shoes are they racist, disrespectful, or just artistically misunderstood…. I want to hear your voices on this so please weigh in…
