Someone painted the original GATs in the DIY thread but I don't know about MMM GATs.

assuming you're talking about the original gats,

i've found this is fairly accurate. I wear a 9UK in converse, though they're a bit on the tight side, I would be better off with a 9.5UK though i've never tried a pair on.

I went with a 280 and it fits perfectly.

are these only suitable to be worn in the spring and summer or would they work in fall/winter as well

Just got mine from zeemon as well. Quite nice in person. I'm a reliable 9.5 US 42.5 EU. Went with the 43 (275) to accommodate athletic socks and they fit fine. So TTS.

But I wouldn't wear them if it's over 25°C... they are quite padded.

I've been wearing mine when it's 90-100 F, with thin no-show socks I've been fine.

Do you guys think white acrylic paint on these beige suede-like MMM gats would turn out similar to the white painted gats? I'm not quite sure on the exact base of the MMM painted gats, if someone knows, please let me know!

Based on the sizing descriptions in this thread, I sound like I should go with a 280, even though I wear a 43 Euro in shoes. Any comments on this that could help me decide on a size?

i am a 43 in margiela gats, 8.5 UK in 'proper' shoes like c&J and church's. i wear a 275 in OG gats, so it sounds like you should be fine. hope that helps.

Hello, I would be interested into a pair in 265, do you still hold one?

I just got mine from Zeemon. I havent worn them yet but 85 bucks is pretty cheap and they look fine to me. For those wondering about sizing (like I did) I took an outline of my foot and measured it, it was 280mm. I bought 285's and I wish I went with a 280. They slip in the heel and that is going to piss me off for sure.


I wear 9UK/10US in shoes, but am a 11 in most US sneakers.
