Sometimes, blindingly obvious mistakes pass manufacturers by. And in the case of Polar Fox men’s boots, the mistake is very unfortunate.
The boots themselves appear hardy and fairly weather proof, but they hide a nasty secret.
It's emerged that the footprint of the boot leaves, what appear to be, 'swastikas' on the ground.
It's the footprint of the boot that has lead to a torrent of 'customer reviews' on the product relating to the Holocaust and the Nazis.

I bought these for camp. When I got there I found out they had piles of free shoes. Oh well.

They do great in chilly weather. Some people have said no, but the record has been corrected.
If you walk anymore than a mile, you'll start feeling gassy.
They handle amazingly in snow. Back in the day, these boots were made to handle snow, water, the corpses of Polish citizens. Really, they're made to handle anything!

They'll do alt right. They trump my old ones anne frankly that's all I'm asking. And at $40 there's no need for any economic anxiety.
They do okay in the snow, but stay out of the heil

The customer questions section was also flooded with comments about The Second World War:
How good are these for walking into Poland?
They take out the Polish competition for sure.
What’s the best way to tie the laces?
- Marc M
If I wear these boots, will Fuhrer notice me?
How could he nazi you?
- Timothy A
