Is that real? How dumb can you get? Plus, das boots is ugly.

Still, get tired of the same rhetoric. Every time something comes up they have to compare themselves to the Jews under Hitler. Good Lord.

This is from the Jeremy Scott line of high-concept art shoes for the Adidas Originals brand. I see the slavery arguments, but the inspiration for the shoes, which makes total sense if you're familiar with the other Jeremy Scott shoes for Adidas, is My Pet Monster.

Their new ginger shoe is soleless and can't be trusted.

ROFL at the My Pet Monster -- I definitely cuddled with one of those.

And those shoes...

http://www.crookedgremlins.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/845207221_cd1fe02100.jpegThat makes more sense, but I'd venture to say most will find it in bad taste without knowing that detail.

Nike is king because of the people they have to pitch their products, going back to Jordan. Its certainly not the quality, but more of style.

Turns out they're not for sale though. That's what they give their 8-year-old sweatshop workers in Indonesia.

Their American Indian line comes in a stylish tan with taupe undertones and bright turquoise accents and is laced with smallpox.

Nike has superior design/marketing.
I saw these and didn't think of slavery, but did think of prisoners in general, which also isn't a very good theme lol
Easy to twist the thought to cause a stir/outcry. I think it's cool to do smart things accessorizing shoes to get that 'something extra' to compete with Nike, but you always have to be wary of the obvious arguments against what you're creating in the mainstream so people don't get upset.
There are bigger problems to cry about though IMO.
I think they make a solid artistic statement about stolen shoes and brand dedication.

These shoes say, "I've been to County".

If they were ankle weights they'd be useful.
