Ever wanted a pair of free Reebok runners? Well here’s your chance.

Giant sportswear brand Reebok are giving out runners to people for a very interesting reason – if they dump, burn, destory or get ride of their New Balance trainers.

Why, you ask?

New Balance are the first sportswear brand to openly voiced their support for President Elect Donald Trump. The brand is now being faced with white supremacy allegations and customer’s are hitting back by destroying the brand’s products.

New Balance have been in hot water since Matt LeBretton, the company’s Vice President of Public Affairs was quoted as saying, “The Obama admin turned a deaf ear to us & frankly w/ Pres-Elect Trump we feel things are going to move in the right direction,” in a tweet by an editor from The Wall Street Journal.

Since then, the company have tried to back away from this alleged ‘Trump support’ and the bigotry connotations attached to it by releasing a statement saying they, “does not tolerate bigotry or hate in any form.”

But that hasn’t stopped ex-fans of New Balance retaliating and posting tweets of them destroying their shows.

Since then, the @reebokclassics twitter account has been offering free kicks to New Balance destroyers and as cheeky as it is, we’re pretty impressed by it.
