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.post #61235 of 1090537/11/12 at 8:50amQuote:Originally Posted by CoMj

Destroyed in a month? What were you doing in them? It must have been more than just walking around the hood.post #61236 of 1090537/11/12 at 8:54ampost #61237 of 1090537/11/12 at 9:01ampost #61238 of 1090537/11/12 at 9:44amQuote:Originally Posted by StanleyVanBuren
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
Not what you were looking for, but here's a little write-up about GATs past/present.

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.post #61242 of 1090537/11/12 at 10:02amQuote:Originally Posted by JuyLeQuote:This happened on mine as well afer a few months of wear.

My margiela lows after a few months wear. It might seem dirty but there's little wear on the sole.
It's also only on the right side. Apparently my right foot is a little bigger
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?
I've since then worn them for 4 years without any problem.
And that's how they look like now
I'll take em to a cobblerpost #61243 of 1090537/11/12 at 10:04ampost #61244 of 1090537/11/12 at 10:27amSo 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
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 ...post #61245 of 1090537/11/12 at 10:34am
