"Designs"

Cause design is easy, lets slap on a couple of eyes and a lip on this shoe right here and call it a day! Al Bundy did this better.

Institutionalized racism ladies and gentlemen, fuck.

Remember that institutionalized racism does not have to be intentional or will ill intent to be racism.

I don't understand how they could want to sell those...

And not even because it ressembles a Black Face or anything. Simply because it's ugly as fuck. Who who'd want to buy that shit ?

Those are some ugly ass shoes apart from anything else. It looks like cleetus from the Simpsons designed it.

I feel like every fashion designer has a secret folder in their Photoshop library specifically for racially-provocative designs.

Who the fuck would wear this anyway? It's like they were designed by 5 years old girl.

All these stupid designs that we get to see before they get pulled make me think about how many even crazier shit we never got to see because someone sane saw that right in time before it went public.

You can't put a shitty face on shitty shoes now in case......

....Come on, banning some of this stuff is just handing ammo to the "Freedom of speech" racists. Pick your battles.

Jesus fucking Christ, those are some ugly shoes that FFX and Baten Kaitos characters would rather die than get caught wearing them

And (idiot) people say PC culture has gone too far? It did the world a great service this day. In fact, by not ordering the shoes be burned immediately, PC culture clearly didn't go far enough.

While intentions indeed have no bearing on whether an action or behavior is racist, I'm failing to see the institution element. My understanding is that would be in reference to racism borne out of laws and other underlying systems of a society. This just seems to be just plain racism, whether by ignorance or actually taking inspiration from those shows.

Slightly off-topic, but she really seems to love all that Eye of Province symbol crap. She probably thinks she is subtle and smart.

Regardless of blackface, those shoes are ugly as sin tbh. They could have been green, red, blue, pink or anything to avoid the blackface, but they still would have been horrible.

Those shoes are a crime against fashion

Even ignoring the blatant blackface implications, those are just ugly as sin. How can someone be a professional designer and greenlight that?

If this is what it takes to be a fashion designer...I chose the wrong career path. Like my god that is trash. Who buys this shit?
