adidas Scraps Jeremy Scott’s “Handcuff” Roundhouse Mid

They’re on entirely different ends of the spectrum when it comes to their connection to basketball sneakers, but both NBA Commissioner David Stern and flamboyant fashion designer Jeremy Scott have come under fire of late for expressing what some have criticized as crass and insensitive. In Stern’s case, the issue was a thought experiment that despite its intended context touched on a nerve; did J.Scott do the same with the shackle on his now nixed adidas Originals Roundhouse Mid ‘Handcuff’? Three Stripes asserts the ‘Handcuff’ “Is nothing more than the designer Jeremy Scott’s outrageous and unique take on fashion and has nothing to do with slavery,” but the potential blowback is enough to take a stand here and now before the latest elaborate ObyO design arrived at retail.

It’s ironic that a shoe that garnered only a moderate buzz in its earliest previews (not to mention that the first comment here on Sneaker News in reference to this topic only came after the cancellation story broke) will now become immortal like the other sneakers stopped short of store shelves; but what happens to the Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals collaboration from here? Do you agree with the adi-assessment that Scott’s “quirky and lighthearted” style was misinterpreted, or will his future designs be even more polarizing thanks to this incident? Let us know what you think on the other side and stick with Sneaker News for all the latest developments. via Washington Post

adidas Originals Serape adi-Rise + Roundhouse Mid

These two new offerings from adidas Originals start out simple enough, with contrasting black and white uppers for the adidas Originals Roundhouse Mid and the adidas Originals adi-Rise respectively. And while they don’t go Jeremy Scott-bananas they do have one special touch that gives them quite a bit of punch, the sunset striping that slides across the upper of each sneaker, hitting on the tongue for the Roundhouse and on the strap for the adi-Rise. Of course there’s no better place to sport the burnt sunset look than this weekend’s edition of the world’s biggest sneaker show, Sneaker Con Miami. Stay with us after the jump for a better look at these adidas Originals silhouettes and pick them up from Mr R Sports, who will be hosting the Sneaker Con Miami pre-party this evening.

Jeremy Scott x adidas Originals Roundhouse Mid ‘Handcuff’

adidas Originals has done a superb job of mixing heritage models with fresh new designs, and with so many to pick from now in both categories, it’s inevitable that some are deserving of more attention.  One such recent debut is the adidas Originals Roundhouse, a sleek, strapped midtop that combines early ’90s basketball with a bit of the trainer vibe from that same era.  We’ve only seen a handful of colors since it first dropped a couple years back, but Jeremy Scott has chosen to resurrect it for one of his most unique Originals by Originals releases yet.  Not only is the Jeremy Scott Roundhouse Mid ‘Handcuff’ a more familiar colorway than he tends toward, but the addition of a chain and cuff on the heel is perhaps the craziest accessory addition he’s offered thus far.  Click through to see these from more angles and let us know if you’re already excited for the fall/winter 2012 collection.  via HS

adidas Originals June 2011 Footwear @ Extra Butter

adidas Originals tends to rely less upon official release dates than Nike Sportswear, but here’s a case when a whole heap of new Three Stripes classics have come available at once.  When you’ve got a collection like this that runs the gamut of a brand’s heritage models, it can be hard to pick a standout model, so we’ll just start at the bottom of the list (in alphabetical order, that is) with a new adidas ZX500 in a colorway that would have been right at home in Philly around the model’s 1984 debut.  That rounds out the running category, but there are plenty more lowtops thanks to a duo of Gazelle IIs plus one Gazelle OG, the immortal Rod Laver and Stan Smith, and one pair of Campuses.  Rounding out the group are two newer designs, both lifestyle oriented midtops with basketball inspiration in the adiRise Mid and Roundouse Mid.  Click through for shots of the entire set and look for yours at select adidas Originals accounts like New York’s Extra Butter.
