Bad Design Does Exist
Adidas' Jeremy Scott x adidas Roundhouse Mid "Handcuffs", or the "shackle" sneaker fails on a number of levels.
Whatever reference that can be ascribed to shackles is not a positive one and with that alone should have cause the designer and the Adidas to pause. But at $350 is beyond rationale to try and sale cheaply made footwear.
Fashion design as I have stated many times is a fickle (more subjective) business and stands apart in my mind from the other design disciplines.
Maybe this would be better received as high art, but design I think not.
