Before the Barry McGee designed adidas collaboration with HUF even released, they were surrounded by controversy. The portayal of Ray Fong, a charachter created by McGee, which happens to be inspired by a photo of McGee as a child, was deemed racist by a number of people. The name Ray Fong was a tribute to Barry's uncle who had passed away. Clearly McGee's intentions were not racially based but as with any great art, it ruffles feathers, and this adidas creation will not go forgotten.
