post #61231 of 98165

someone did a very detailed comparison between the MMM GATs and the originals at some point, with pictures, etc. I can't find the post (search sucks) but maybe someone remembers where it was or has it bookmarked...

 

there were a lot of differences, the MMM ones may not be the longest-lasting shoes out there but their construction is much better than the originals from what I remember

Love how long gats have been a part of SF lore. One of the few things here that haven't waxed or waned a bit

Ughh fuck P&B was refusing to let me process my order because I'm from the UK for some reason (even though they do international shipping now) and in the time it took me to get that fixed the item I wanted was sold out. baldy[1].gif

Well alright, I take some of my words back. They aren't exactly the same, but from my disappointing experience, I wouldn't recommend Margiela GATs to anyone. Paid about 200 usd (yoox) and they lasted for a month. The originals I bought 2 years ago from ebay.de for 30 usd shipped and are still in a decent condition.

Destroyed in a month? What were you doing in them? It must have been more than just walking around the hood.

I bike in mine, play frisbee, go to the beach and party in mine and they are still in great shape after 6 months. Just a little wear on the paint flaking off which is expected.

True. :D cold weather plus not so well glued, I guess.

Not what you were looking for, but here's a little write-up about GATs past/present.

Wait so you wore them in snow?  What the fuck were you expecting, they're suede!

Don't wear your gats in the snow or out on hikes. That's what CPs are for biggrin.gif

My GATs have been holding in fine as well and I don't treat them gently at all (they're sneakers, they're meant to get dirty). There's some dirt on the paint, the exposed leather parts have aged and the laces are no longer pristine but there's no actual damage to them. They're more comfortable than the day I bought them.

How to fix? I don't want to have to buy a new pair as everything else is excellent. Will margiela fix it even tho they don't have to?
This happened on mine as well afer a few months of wear. I brought them to a cobbler who added a piece of beige leather on both.

I've since then worn them for 4 years without any problem.

And that's how they look like now

So every morning when I get in the office my co-worker is internet shopping

This morning she was looking at shoes from an mall brand (Steve Madden) and complained that the selection was so poor at the moment.
For some reason I felt inclined to share my bit of knowledge and introduced her to the likes of Jeffrey Campbell ... then it spawned into SSENSE, TheCorner, Yoox ...

She immediately picked up a MJ handbag and was really curious about the prices and how I knew about the store. She was quite ecstatic about finding out about these stores and forbid me to ever let her daughter know (like I even talk to her).
Then she started talking about fashion and this Gucci internship her daughter had connections to and asked if I was interested. She said I had a good eye and I can start off styling celebrities

What she does not realize is that there are millions of art/design students and bloggers in LA who want to do the exact same thing, and I just read up on a fashion forum where I'm actually the worst dressed

ffffuuuu.gif

I like to add that the showrooming affect is not as prolific as it seems. Everyone does it in the most basic money saving sense...but not to the extent that we may behave in terms of buying season after season of goods. There still lies a market that is untapped IMO, perhaps at the local level, that information can still be linked between the consumer and marketer/seller re: the anecdote with my co-worker

I really should utilize that $90 Adobe suite I picked up and start designing/creating a basic webpage ...
