If you need a new pair of sneakers, make sure to keep an eye out the next time you throw out your trash, because liberal sneakerheads are flushing money down the toilet protesting New Balance.
The company stated on Wednesday that “things are going to move in the right direction” with Donald Trump as President, which enraged people so much they set their old-man shoes on fire:

New Balance has since clarified their statement to let everyone know they’re not pro-Trump (via Buzzfeed):
“The statement [quoted by Sarah Germano] is correct in the context of trade, not talking about large geo-political anything, but in the context of the Trans Pacific Partnership agreement.
It’s inaccurate. Everything I’ve said is in the context of trade.”
My statements aren’t political, this is policy related solely to TPP. I’ve spoken on the record to The Boston Globe and other sources about our opposition to Obama’s footwear tax and the TPP.”
Sorry, New Balance. Angry people have already read one thing and are dead-set on protesting for the hell of it!
