Twitter Has a lot to Say About adidas' Nebraska College Cleats

Nebraska College’s Cornhuskers just got some new football cleats, and Twitter is pissed. The footwear comes amid a scandal in which Three Stripe officials are accused of bribing athletes to join adidas-sponsored colleges, a crime spurred by the increasingly questioned practice of schools and brands not paying athletes.

So, when adidas dropped these ‘emoji’ cleats covered in cash, the public were quick to call-out poor taste.

Moving on from the controversy, adidas and the Huskers revealed a new pair decked in '100' emojis.

💯💯💯

Shoutout to @adidasFballUS for letting us check out the Adimoji cleats.#teamadidas x #GBR pic.twitter.com/EyHZKmyGbG
