A reddit user posted a keen observation about their new boots in the Protect And Serve sub-reddit, a community for law enforcement, yesterday.
In it, the user points out that his new 5.11 Tactical boots leave footprints with swastikas in them thanks to the cross pattern on the tread of the shoe.
“Thanks 5.11. Now my boots leave Swastikas everywhere,” the user wrote.
We did a little research and found 5.11’s culprit on the website, the Speed 3.0 5″ Boot, which is actually a nice looking product aside from the footprints it leaves.
In a world where everyone is offended by everything, they may want to rethink the tread pattern on the ‘4.0’ model, but for now, we think it’s a harmless, funny coincidence.
