Controversial Shackle Kicks
The Jeremy Scott x Adidas 'Handcuffs' Shoes are Provocative

Recently previewed on Adidas’ Facebook page, these Jeremy Scott x Adidas ‘Handcuffs’ sneakers are stirring up controversy.

Clearly referencing shackles, the pair is an extremely daring take on footwear. Having received some pretty scathing responses on the web thus far, the shoes are, at the very least, excellent in bringing attention to the sportswear brand. Apart from the obvious handcuffs, there’s not much that stands out about the shoes themselves. Colored in clashing purple and deep yellow tones, they are slightly offbeat but otherwise an average pair of runners. Collaborations between Jeremy Scott and Adidas have been quite strange in the past, so it’s no surprise that these kicks are equally as odd as their predecessors.

Striking, odd and decidedly far from functional, this is a bold look sure to bring on a conversation about the political nature of fashion.
