As protests against U.S. President-Elect Donald Trump roil cities across America, people have found a corporate logo to symbolize their anger and dismay. It’s emblazoned on the side of their shoes.

New Balance, the privately held Boston shoemaker, found itself in consumer cross-hairs after declaring that Trump’s imminent ascension to the White House is a move in the “right direction.” The backlash was sparked by a tweet from the Wall Street Journal’s Sara Germano, who quoted a New Balance spokesperson saying President Barack Obama’s administration had “turned a deaf ear” to New Balance.

That didn’t go over well with the public. After all, more than half the electorate didn’t vote for Trump. Furious shoppers converged on New Balance’s Facebook page to rail against the brand and call for boycotts. On Twitter, they shared photos and videos of their New Balance sneakers thrown in the trash or tossed in the toilet. Some even lit their kicks on fire.

Hopefully none of those leftist have cavus feet, because New Balances are good for that.

Wow, if I had a company and people were burning my product, I would be happy, because that would mean I could sell even more of my product. After all, people can't burn what they don't have.

No doubt. Need to release a "protest" model that spins and changes color when set on fire (like a jumping jack or flower). Capitalism FTW.

I didn't know New Balance was made in the USA. If that's true, it explains their enthusiasm for Trump. It will be great for business if Trump puts tariffs on all the other shoes coming from Taiwan.

It would also be great if those companies came back from Taiwan in order to avoid import tariffs.

Oddly, the people burning shoes don't seem to realize that Nike makes their shoes overseas. NB is the only athletic shoe made on the US. The people who need jobs might think twice about protesting the only brand that is in a position to provide jobs to Americans.

Well, the problem is they think they don't need jobs. They were certain Hillarity would give them money for breathing, and pay their college tuition so they could obtain Masters Degrees in Uselessness. And unicorns. There were probably free unicorn rides involved in the promises.

Not the brightest bulbs in the box. Right outside Portland Oregon where Nike has its HQ is a progressive socialist cesspool. Got to love them socialist made sweatshop shoes.

Anti-TPP?

Wait a minute, I thought the progressives were opposed to "crony capitalist" trade deals?

What the hell was the "Battle of Seattle"?

Can these dimwits keep a coherent thought in their heads?

Trump has transformed the remnants of their grey matter into mush.

I'm wearing New Balance shoes right now. And I ain't burning them.

I might not turn the other cheek if someone tried to burn my NBs. I have never been in a physical fight in my life, but there might be a first time. Just for that I will wear some tomorrow.

They will. What I don't get is how it benefits Americans to allow Nike to make their shoes in Taiwan and then sell them for double what New Balance charges and they make theirs here. It doesn't seem to be saving us any money, only costing us jobs. Perhaps one of the voodoo free traders here can explain.

Leftists think the Battle of Seattle was the WTO riots in Nov . 1999 . The REAL Battle of Seattle was in Jan . 1856 , on the morning of the 26th to dark . US Marines , cannon fire from US Navy Decatur drove off the Indians who killed two settlers as the rest were in Block houses having been tipped off of the coming attack. The Indians were under cannon fire where 3rd Avenue was later built . Blamed for the attack ,Chief Owhi ( Klickitat /Yakima )was later killed by the Army after the War of Coer de Alene . Also blamed ( Nisqually) Chief Leschi ( not involved ) was hung at Fort Steilacoom in 1858 . This attack was from non participation of a treaty by Gov Stevens. Gov Stevens also implicated Kitsap ( not involved ,seems he just listed those he did not like ). Carrying a 4 inch pocket knife is illegal in Seattle now , so , clearly that place would have been better off if the Navy was not there and Chief Owhi had wiped them out .

I've been waiting for NB shoes to go on sale so I can replace my failed Skecher's experiment... Now I feel like paying full price.

Not to knock a "mostly" made in the USA product, but:

"Where the domestic value is at least 70%, we label our shoes Made in the USA."
