Is the Addidas "slave shoe" controversy a double standard?



Not kahute!
ADDIDAS
“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. Any suggestion that this is linked to slavery is untruthful.”





TOM FORD
Black leather wedge sandal with chain ankle-strap, 5″ heel, in sizes 5.5–12. $1,290. Italy. Bergdorf’s.
Very kahute!

Just playing devil's advocate. Anyhow, those Addidas are hideous.

The three-year-old at my house happened by the computer and saw the shoes--he said, "I want them; they have chains."

Now if addidas wanted to say something would they have made the chain long enough to go up to the wrist Then they can call them south side addidas.
