Brand: Adidas

Reason: After the 2012 release of the Roundhouse Mid Handcuffs by Jeremy Scott, Adidas has come under fire for what is said to be an insensitive creation by the brand. The Mid Handcuffs, which have semi-gold shackles attached to the back, were revealed on the brand’s Facebook page last year with the caption, “Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles.” Soon after the release and the criticism that followed, an Adidas spokesman released a statement to the Hollywood Reporter saying, “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.”
