Yes. That's the part I redacted from the quote. I figured as soon as that came up, this would turn into a thread about politics. And I guess the question is slightly, unavoidably political. But Keen is a company that makes some SPD shoes and sees bike commuters as some of their customers worth courting ... so I'm curious if their move to "insource" some of their shoe production is something people in the 20 will appreciate.
