Man Leaves Swastika Footprints Everywhere He Goes After Accidentally Buying Wrong Pair Of Boots

There are several things you need to be sure of when buying a new pair of boots. They need to be comfortable, they need to be durable, they need to have a little room for the toes, and they need to have soles without swastika patterns on them. Obviously. But one Reddit user called FRSHFSHFCKR clearly forgot about that last bit when buying new boots for work recently, which is why he ended up leaving swastika footprints everywhere he went.

Fortunately he noticed before anybody accused him of being a Nazi sympathizer. Still, the fact that he could so easily acquire a pair of boots featuring symbols synonymous with the Third Reich is kind of worrying. The boots, which are Polar Fox men’s military ankle boots, are available on Amazon, and while we don’t recommend that you buy them, we do however suggest checking them out if only for the funny customer comments.

More info: Amazon

This guy was surprised to find that the boots he’d bought for work had swastikas on the soles!

Needless to say, it didn’t take long for the jokes to start!

The swastika is also a sacred symbol to Hindus, Jains and Buddhists... and has been long before the Nazis smeared it. To the eastern world the symbol stands for good luck, prosperity and blessings even now. Of course, not when taken in the Nazi context.

Actually, if my memory serves right the flipped version of the swastika is sacred... The direction of the pattern will be going the opposite direction... I stayed at a hotel once with those symbols scattered all around the hotel and I thought they were all swastika but actually they weren’t and I did some research and found it out..

That's one of those things that you have to want to be offended by. It's a boot print. How often do you even notice a boot print.
