Company Recalls Boots After Customer Finds Swastikas On The Soles


A Reddit user was shocked when he wore his new pair of Polar Fox boots and discovered they left swastika-shaped footprints on the floor.

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

 

The California-based company which manufactures the boot, Conal International Trading Inc, is recalling the boot, claiming it wasn’t aware of what was happening on the boot soles until it saw the complaint on Reddit.

That was totally something that wasn’t intentional or anything like that,” the company’s e-commerce manager, Anthony Nguyen, told the Daily Mail.

It’s something that we’re going to pull off the shelves obviously … It was obviously a design flaw.”

The boots made news in Germany, too, where Stern, a weekly magazine based in Hamburg, noted another oddity — the boot’s name, Polar Fox.

That happens to be “the name of an operation carried out by the Wehrmacht of the German Reich in the Second World War: from Finnish and Norwegian soil, the goal was to conquer the port town of Murmansk against the Soviet Union,” the magazine noted.

Furthermore, the (boot) can be described as … military combat boots.”
