New Balance shoe owners light their sneakers on fire to protest after company ‘voiced support’ for President Trump

New Balance shoe owners are throwing away their sneakers or lighting them on fire to protest after the company reportedly voiced support for President-elect Donald Trump.

After Trump’s stunning victory, a spokesman for the company told Wall Street Journal on Wednesday: ‘Frankly w/ Pres-Elect Trump we feel things are going to move in the right direction.’

The brief statement was picked up by popular sneaker site, Sole Collector, and was met with outrage by countless fans of the brand. 

Hilarious – the tweet states that the VP of New Balance has publicly opposed TPP – which most of these idiot shoe-burners allegedly also oppose.
