Nazis Adopt New Logos

According to Spiegel, German neo-Nazis are sporting New Balance running shoes and other brands that meet their approval (for reasons surely lost on the brands themselves).

So now they wear something they call the secret insignia of the right-wing scene: New Balance shoes. The “N” on the shoes is supposed to stand for “national.”
Brands like Masterrace, Pit Bull Germany and Thor Steinar are especially popular among right-wing youth, whose dress code also includes Doc Marten boots, Fred Perry shirts and Lonsdale jackets.
