Secret Swastika

In Buddhism, the swastika signifies auspiciousness and good fortune as well as the Buddha's footprints and the Buddha's heart. The swastika is said to contain the whole mind of the Buddha and can often be found imprinted on the chest, feet or palms of Buddha images. It is also the first of the 65 auspicious symbols on the footprint of the Buddha.

I couldn't help but connect Buddha's footprints with these Aryan Wear boots with swastikas & ss bolts on the soles. Pretty awesome boots, but the anti-social subculture they are connected to kind of kill the whole excitement for me.
