(Not so) Great Scott!

Jeremy Scott is a designer who is known for his crazy antics in the fashion world. He sent skirts and shirts made from garbage bags, and screen T-shirts that read “TRASH” down the runways last year.

When Adidas hired him to create a running shoe, they had no idea the concept would end up in the dumpster. The shoe has gained so much controversy with the plastic shackles, that Adidas is pulling them off the market to avoid anymore bad publicity. Activists everywhere are outraged claiming that the shoe promotes slavery and is a bad connotation to the African American people.

I’m just curious why no one spoke up at the production meeting? Who thinks putting shackles on a running shoe is a good idea?

Jeremy says he was inspired by a monster, plush doll from the ’80s that wore hand-cuffs, and in no way was promoting slavery.

Since when does Adidas let furry, stuffed animals inspire their athletic line? I’m willing to bet  that there was a little more than coffee being passed around at that meeting.
