The world revolves around the welfare beast Negroes... Adidas "Shackle" Sneakers upsets the coloreds...Brings back the BLACK SLAVERY MEMORIES!

Here is the best part...Who is reporting this news story? SHINE FROM YAHOO! Too funny!
BLACK SLAVERY MEMORIES??? Are there any 150 year old black slaves still living to remember being a slave??? Ironically during slavery there was ZERO UNEMPLOYMENT for blacks and NOT ONE DRIVE BY SHOOTING! WIN WIN!


A new Adidas sneaker has sparked outrage, with sneaker fans accusing the brand of promoting racism. The Roundhouse Mid "Handcuff" shoe, created by controversial New York designer Jeremy Scott, features a plastic orange shackle that attaches to each ankle. The $350 sneakers hit stores in August, but Adidas promoted them on their official Facebook page on June 14 with this quote: "Tighten up your style with the JS Roundhouse Mids, dropping in August. Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?" While the brand may be making a cheeky statement about shoe theft, many are equating these binding devices with slavery and prisoners. At press time the "Handcuff" sneaker image has over 36,000 Facebook likes, but many of the comments are angry and disapproving.

"Please tell me this is FAKE. I am not hearing these Adidas Amistad Originals," one woman commented on Facebook, referencing the ship famous for an African slave revolt in 1839. One man is prepared to boycott the brand out of respect to his African heritage. "I for one will NEVER don another pair of Adidas if these shoes see the light of day in the sneaker market," he wrote. One Facebook user reasoned that "corporate business has a social responsibility above all to consider these perceptions before releasing a product like this." Another flabbergasted person wondered, "This has to be some sort of prank right?" Others simply called the design "ignorant" and the look "slavewear."

But the reactions weren't all negative. One guy viewed the handcuff as a creative and lighthearted design component. "I just see this as a shoe so fly you better chain em to ya!" Several commenters said the shoes reminded them of the popular '80s toy My Pet Monster who wore identical orange plastic handcuffs. Many said they weren't offended by the shoe, but still felt they were ugly.

For those unfamiliar with Jeremy Scott, his designs for his own collection and his Adidas partnership are typically surprising and unusual. Previous designs for Adidas have included shows with playful plush teddy bear heads and leopard tails, giant wings, and even miniature tuxedos. Madonna, Kanye West, Beyoncé, and Rihanna are all avid Jeremy Scott fans. Some may dislike his outrageous designs, but the new "Handcuffs" model is the first one to ever be dubbed offensive. Initial images debuted in January on blogs like SneakerNews.com without any criticism, but the Adidas Facebook post made the shoe a larger public issue. The sneaker controversy is still ongoing with over 2,000 Facebook comments along with many websites and bloggers discussing their unique perspectives.

Yahoo! Shine reached out to Adidas for comment, and received this response. "The JS Roundhouse Mid is part of the Fall/Winter 2012 design collaboration between adidas Originals and Jeremy Scott. 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 is renowned as a designer whose style is quirky and lighthearted and his previous shoe designs for adidas Originals have, for example, included panda heads and Mickey Mouse. Any suggestion that this is linked to slavery is untruthful."

For some sneaker heads, though, this statement is not enough. One commenter wrote on Facebook, "Wow Adidas, you had an opportunity to fix this and you defiantly decided to go the racist route. Good for you. I hope your stock falls off a cliff."

What do you think of the new Adidas sneakers? Do you find them offensive, or do you think the company's explanation is satisfactory?

Coloreds wear your shackles and chains and shut the Fuck up before i knock your teeth out.

They need to create a shoe that sterilizes these cocksuckers.

Maybe have the sterilization chemicals impregnated in the insoles/cushioning so it's absorbed into the bottoms of their ripe-ass paws and hooves.

Nike could call it the Air Miscarriage or something like that.

Ties to slavery?

All I see is a pair of ugly $250 shoes.

Tho a GPS tracker ring would be a useful accessory.

$350 Fucking dollars for these? WTF! I wouldn't give you a jar full of piss for a whole truckload of these creepy shoes. I thought there is a recession going on in this country.

Truth is they are probably pissed as the ankle bracelet means it will take them longer to steal them from someone. Another thing to unhook.

They never should have been taken OUT of the chains. Fuck these apes.

It looks like people are chained to corporate greed and always wearing name brands. $350 for a pair gym shoes? I bet everyone with a Link card will own two pairs. What a joke.

Niggers would be the only people in the market place buying any goofy shoe like that! I bet more black men would have bought the shoe and been stylin' in those kicks then was realized. The numbers of fans for that stupid urban footwear would have outnumbered those who complained online yet who were not fashion sneaker customers to start with.

Like the online 'boycott' of that Kardashian show on the E! channel. 100k people were going to not watch it! They signed a FB page or some shit! Look out TV! Then it came on for the next season and and millions tuned in and it was the best rating turn over ever. Nice boycott.

So 10k niggers online are offended? Bet you there are 200k niggers with cash back on the EBT card who would want to buy those kicks!

Gym shoes for normal folks are used for exercise only and not worn for *ahem* fashion. Thanks to hip hop culture, the sale of athletic shoes for non athletic wear and hiking boots (Timberland) for non trail hiking purposes took off.Even blacks wearing skate shoes was a trend. LOL!

You want an example of modern slavery? Blacks have enslaved themselves to wanting cheap shoes for the purpose of being 'fresh' and would go to any stupid ends to get them.

Recall the Nike Foamposites bullshit with the blacks and riots to get SNEAKERS?! Blacks are self enslaved to materialism and foolishness.

Adidas missed the payday pull the shackle shoes form the market before the sales even started! That would have been big.

When a black celebrity (sportsman or rapper) goes to jail, his merchandise sells out with black kids. Blacks love controversy.

The jersey sells out, the album gets another 100k downloads or units sold, the fans follow the twitter account more etc. This would have been money in the bank thanks to the drama over an orange plastic chain.

Remember Mr T, he actually said that he wore large gold chains to remind himself about slavery. I remember the three to four times I met him he was a always A real nice guy and one of the times I met him was before he got famous when he was a a bouncer. He gave UP his gold to help the victims of Katrina.

Now we know who is really winning the race war. Adidas.

Shame the designer wasn't a nigger then they would be cool sneakers worth killing for.

I had a dream, there were no more niggers, then I woke up and realized it was only a dream, what a shame.

Nigs will buy them up as fast as they can stock the shelves!

Only you cannot say NIGGER shoes, only niggers can say that!

Haha Hoho!

As soon as Adidas pays off $5,000,000 to Sharpton or the NAACP then they'll be "acceptable" and all will be forgiven.

If you don't like them - don't buy them.

If Adidas gets stuck with them, they can always donate them to Sheriff Arpaio in AZ. He probably would use them for his inmates.

Boycott? You think blacks know what the fuck that activity is?

Of the fools I have known, the matter would work out something like this:

"Yo! This be my crew! We now make on dem intros son!

Dis my boy Skillet!
Dis my boy Junbug!
Dis my boy Ray Ray.
Dis my boy COT!
Dis here be my boy Pimpin Ricky!
Dis my boy Wayne Wayne!

Boycott? I just told you nigger! That there be my boy Cot! You is deaf and some shit nigger?!"

Total success I am sure.

My first impression was that the shackle was an extra security measure to deter dude from stealing another dude's shoes. "Let's go take that nigga's shoes." "No way nigga. He's wearing the shackle."

Doesnt it spotlight the concept of being a slave to fashion? Why else the standing in lines for hours to purchase other overpriced ugly shoes?

Anonymous said...

It don't matter how much the gym shoes cost because the rotten nigger led government steals the money from the hard working white man and gives it to the lousy no count niggers. The niggers know they're going to get the white man's hard earned money EVERY month, so they know it's OK to piss it away, more of the white man's money comming next month.

There is. It affects you and all of your working friends. The government pets have no recession. They get all their money each month and the liberals are always so worried about giving them more.

The offical nigger shoe about slavery should be one show with the Democrat National Comittee on one and the Illinois LINK Card logo on the other. These are the true slavemasters, keeping Darkie living in public housing and giving him all the orange pop, hot frito's and malt liquor he can buy with the LINK Card!!! in return for vote to the "Massar" Obama and Rahm "JewBoy" Bring back slavery, the black unemployement rate was ZERO!!!! and after picking cotton all day the duke was too tired to be up all night "Niggering Around" and shootin up da hood!

They're shoes. Who the fuck cares what they look like? If someone doesn't like it, they don't have to drop $350 on a pair of fucking gym shoes...

Dumb niggers... always pulling that bullshit slave card out... Enough is enough already. It's done. It's over. There's no fucking reparations due or going to be paid. Grow up, move on, and learn to do something other than bitch about nothing you dumb fucking niggers...
