Adidas has pulled its Jeremy Scott shoes with ankle-cuffs. Critics say they resemble a symbol of slavery.

The sneaker was supposed to be a reboot of a classic high-top. Scott is one of fashion's wildest designers and says he was going for "quirky." Adidas denies the look is linked to slavery, but pulled the shoes nonetheless.
