If you had your heart set on buying Jeremy Scott's My Pet Monster-inspired sneakers it's not going to happen.
Adidas decided earlier this week to cancel the release of the shoes after all the slavery comparisons.
Adidas said in a statement:
"The design of the JS Roundhouse Mid is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott's outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery. We apologize if people are offended by the design and we are withdrawing our plans to make them available in the marketplace."
It's probably for the best.

Jeremy Scott's newest creation for Adidas Originals has sparked quite the controversy.
Last week the sporty brand posted a picture of the Roundhouse Mids, which features a plastic chain and ankle cuff, on their Facebook with the caption "Got a sneaker game so hot you lock your kicks to your ankles?" and that's when the comparisons to slavery began.
So what does Jeremy have to say about all this?
