Also, isn't it really equally as `racist` to stereotype users of the shoe like that? I mean, it shouldn`t be `racist` because not only black individuals are allowed to wear high top shoes.
Of course pop culture seems to dictate that when you`re black the more absurd and over the top your outfit is the better, so these would fit the bill nicely, yet at the same time lots of people and african american advocacy groups teach that the first rule of operation on modern society is to never, ever give up an opportunity to get offended and/or outraged, so this will surely be a great dilemma for many young black males; do they *wear* the completely absurd looking shoes? Of course I shouldn`t act like there`s anything stopping people from doing both...

Images it may conjure up aside the shoes are just fugly, who would really want to buy the stupid things anyways? It really doesn't matter if ADIDAS ever made them or not...people can choose not to buy them and if no one buys them then ADIDAS will quit making them. Problem solved. As far as them being offensive to African- Americans because it conjures up images of slavery..sorry but so does the N word and it`s constantly used by the people who it offends. Maybe more importantly one would be hard pressed to find any culture or race of people that didn`t endure slavery at some time or another...even today there are slaves in the world. Sorry black folk, I`m usually on your side but I can`t see the logic in it that argument.
