Adidas Billboard Causes Stir in England

An outdoor board that shows British Olympic sprinter Dwain Chambers crouching down wearing Adidas's new a3 Twin Strike trainer has caused some complaints in England. The complaint claims the board's imagery, which shows a fuse coming out of the back of the sneakers is too close a reminder to convicted terrorist Richard Reid. As you recall, he was the one who attempted to light a shoe bomb while in flight shortly after 911. [via adland]
