The shoe in question:

After a noble antifascism group saw the cleverly hidden connection that 18 = AH = Adolf Hitler and posted about it on Facebook the nefarious shoe selling website was forced to stop selling their **** shoes.

The aforementioned group later said: "We just wanted to buy kid's shoes but had to look up the meaning of the word irony again."

Heel Hitler!

But seriously was the company actually linked to the *****, or were they basing it off of the 18=AH on **** flag colored shoe?

I think I've got the entire story in the OP.
Anti-fascism group sees shoes (in red and blue) with 18 on it > they make a post saying "forget Thor Steinar and all other Neonazi brands, here comes Tschibo" (Tschibo being the webshop) > people react heavily because OMG HITLER! > Store ditches the shoes > Anti-fascism group makes weird statement about irony.

I was lost at the part about 18 equaling AH.

1 = A
2 = B
3 = C
4 = D
5 = E
6 = F
7 = G
8 = H

So 18 = AH. (Or 18 = R, but that would be silly)
It's rather far fetched..
