Company recalls boots after man discovers swastikas on soles

You probably wouldn’t want to walk a day in this man’s shoes.

A Reddit user took to social media to share the soles of his black leather Polar Fox boots — after he discovered they had left tiny swastika prints on the ground.

“There was an angle I didn’t get to see when ordering my new work boots,” the man wrote.

User FRSHFSHFCKR’s viral post was viewed more than 2 million times and sparked Nazi-related jokes about the unusual design.

“Very comfortable. Nein out of ten,” one user wrote.

“Good for marching into Poland,” wrote another user.

The boots can be found on Amazon and are listed as “military combat boots.”

California-based company Conal International Trading Inc. sells the boots and announced it’s recalling them after receiving multiple complaints.

“It’s something that we’re going to pull off the shelves,” Anthony Nguyen, a company spokesperson, told the Daily Mail.

Esquire Magazine took offense to the boot’s design by calling them “pretty ugly” because of “numerous white supremacist symbols.”

“There’s too much going on here: a zipper, a buckle, a cloth panel, and swastikas. Come on, Polar Fox boots.”

It remains unclear if Amazon would remove the boots from its website. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment
