New Adidas chain shoe causes ruckus

New Adidas chain shoe causes ruckus


Critics are calling Adidas' new JS Roundhouse Mids slave wear. To me, these monstrosities with their matching ankle chains look more like jailhouse chic than anything. Just the thing to wear with sagging pants. What's next? Neon-orange jumpsuits as streetwear? How about some matching wrist chains?

Excuse my sarcasm, but something tells me that when these shoes go on sale in August, they are going to fly off the shelves even with all the complaints and tongue wagging about slave connotations.

That's my opinion. What's yours?

About this blog
What’s up, everyone? Welcome. Let's discuss whatever's on our minds - pop culture, relationships, politics, even the latest fashion trend. If you read my Daily News column, you know I like to mix it up: One day, it's the state of hip hop and the next, the latest political race. Also, it's always fun to try to figure out the opposite sex and check the latest trends. It’s all about learning from each other, exchanging ideas and hopefully making some changes for the better. Nothing is off limits - just keep it clean and civil.
