Reebok Sends Free Shoes to People Trashing New Balances Shoes Because of Trump (Tweets)

Recently, it seems that New Balance, as a result of their support of Trump, has been christened by several white-pride and supremacy groups as the “official shoe of white people.” I’m not sure that’s a distinction New Balance really desires or sanctions, but in an effort to distance themselves from the whole mess, many people are trashing their New Balances.

And Reebok’s offering up some new kicks to a select few of those individuals on Twitter.

If New Balance wanted to nip this in the bud, they’d be wise to issue some sort of statement, because as the backlash grows, what started as a few people on social media could turn into a consumer trend.
