Dolce & Gabbana Just Released Something Called A "Slave Sandal"

Who thought this was a good idea?

We get it - people like to take risks in the fashion industry. If you're not edgy, no one's talking about you. But this? This is a new level of wrongness.

Dolce and Gabbana is catching some well-deserved heat for releasing the most offensively-named shoe ever, as part of their spring 2016 collection. The terribly-named "slave sandal" retails for $2,395, but the lack of self-awareness it would take to actually decide to call your product something like this? Priceless.

"Slave sandal in Napa leather with pompoms," read the original description on the website. Understandably, people are pretty perplexed.

Dolce and Gabbana have yet to release a statement in response to all the controversy, though they have changed the item's description to "decorative flat sandal" on their website.
