The latest Adidas shoes come with chains for your legs.
The Daily Mail reported:
Adidas has sparked outrage and been accused of ‘promoting slavery’ by creating a new pair of trainers which have bright orange ‘shackles’ that fit around the wearer’s ankles.
The clothing giant is under fire for its August scheduled release of the JS Roundhouse Mids, which many have compared to the devices worn by black slaves in 19th Century America.

Adidas is promoting these as shoes that can’t be stolen from your feet… Until some criminal decides to cut your foot off.
