People Are Throwing Away Their New Balance Pairs Because Of Trump

The brand reportedly expressed support for his presidency
by Nikki Dela Cruz | Nov 10, 2016

Following Donald Trump's shocking triumph, major sportswear company New Balance immediately expressed its support for his looming presidency with this statement, quoted by a reporter from The Wall Street Journal:

To put the brand's stance into context, this has most likely stemmed from Trump's objection of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade deal that New Balance had long been opposing because of the threat it poses to US footwear production.

Some sneakerheads weren't too fond of NB's position, pushing them to throw away their own pairs in a show of protest.

New Balance sure has lost a handful of lifelong fans

For some, throwing things wasn't enough

Oh, you think that was the worst?

What would be a protest without a little bonfire?

Sometimes, you just have to be a little creative


New Balance hasn't released a follow-up statement regarding the public outcry, though a massive boycott is brewing.
