JS Roundhouse Mids have bright 'shackles' that fit around wearer's ankles

Many have compared devices to those worn by black slaves in America

2,000 label design 'offensive, ignorant' and say Adidas 'sunk to new lows'

By Daily Mail Reporter

Adidas has come under fire for creating a pair of trainers with ‘shackles’.

Critics have compared the ‘JS Roundhouse Mids’, to be released in August, to the chains worn by black slaves in the 19th century.

The firm unveiled the trainers on its Facebook page. They feature plastic orange ‘shackles’ attached to the ankles by chains in the same colour.

The shoes have sparked an angry debate online. More than 2,000 Facebook users have commented, with many calling the design ‘offensive’ and ‘ignorant’, saying the firm has ‘sunk to new lows’ with its ‘slavewear’ product.

This is simply a government approved stunt to cause more anger in the black community to get us one step closer to their planned race war.
