Adidas pulls the "Roundhouse" after racist accusations
Jeremy Scott is the designer of the now revoked sneakers accused of being racist. Its because of the shackle and therefor the reference to slave trading that Adidas decided to pull it.
The makers had this to say in the shit storm: 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.
