Margiela GATs (or German Army Trainers) are replicas of a shoe Adidas made for Gemran troops in the 1970's. As opposed to regular sneakers, they have a nice, slim profile, and are made of ridiculous leather and lamb suede. They've retailed for as high as $800, can sometimes be found at Barney's for like $500, I think, which I find about as ridiculous as the $1,000 MC shoes. Still and all, they're really great, so it's nice to find them at a more reasonable price.
if you're looking for a reasonable prize, you can have a look here: http://www.tiszacipo.hu/en
