Badgers basketball shoe controversy: ‘It’s not cool’
The word “scandal” has been bandied about in connection to the new basketball shoe that has become a flashpoint in the college basketball debate.
The shoe was designed by the company known as Adidas, and it is the first time the shoe has been used by a professional basketball team in the NBA.
But for many, the shoe is just a bit too small.
A shoe that is not designed for the court?
What kind of shoes are these?
“It’s very uncomfortable.
It’s not like any other shoe in basketball,” one fan wrote on Instagram.
“It feels like you’re walking into the locker room of a professional team and you’re just wearing these shoes for a couple of hours a day,” another said.
Some fans were even unhappy that the shoes are only available in white.
“I really like the colors and the logo on it, but I don’t think it’s a perfect fit,” one person commented.
And the shoe isn’t the only one to cause controversy on social media.
An Adidas spokesperson told The Huffington Post that they are “looking into the matter and will take appropriate action”.””
I feel like you guys don’t get paid enough,” another person added.
