UPDATED: Did This Shoe Company Cross the Line? [Poll]

Adidas - Facebook

I’ve always been a little perplexed by foot fashion. I’m not quite sure when sneakers became status symbols, but I remember when I was a kid, Reebok Pumps were the must have shoes. As recently as this past Winter, the release of the latest Air Jordans sparked riots. But now Adidas is causing controversy with their latest design. 10:15pm -Read more for an update.

UPDATE: After a flurry of media attention today, Adidas has announced that they will be pulling plans to release the “JS Roundhouse Mids” to the market.

Original Story:

Their “JS Roundhouse Mids“, which are due in August, feature orange plastic cuffs that resemble shackles worn by prisoners, and worse, some even feel that it suggests images of slavery.

So what do you think, has Adidas gone too far in the name of “fashion”? Would you let your kids wear these shoes? Vote on our poll below and feel free to elaborate in the comments section.
