    yup, if they only use the sambas gum soles.



    ernest hemingway,

    been on that same predicament, wishing some models be re-issued... hopefully for the better.

    How much do GATs usually go for in USD?

    like 20-35 euros over there but proxying them ends up running like $70-90 US


    onion is right that there are a couple different trainers. they all look mostly the same but slight variances in the leather used, the slight color difference in the gum sole (some are really bright, others almost grey), the color of the suede used, laces, and tongue. For the most part not a big deal but yea they do look a bit different and sometimes fit different. I think mine are 285 and fit like a size 10.5-11

    Time to make my move into baller sneakers. Should i start off with some german armies or cps, or just go straight for some Lanvins on eBay.

    Damn, well consider me confused by GAT sizing then. According to this: http://www.comparisonshopshoes.com/a...hoe-sizes.html I figured my size 13 foot would be a 290. But if a 285 is a 10.5-11, then apparently not.

    i dunno. mine are stamped "BW Sport 285" on the bottom. I think my conversion sounds about right from others i've seen though.


    Also, why were people talking about gat in this thread? They're not baller whatsoever

    Heres the original 70's German Army Trainer:

    [​IMG]

    Here it is compared to MMM. They have the same shape, however the MMM's sole tapers slightly more at the toe. Also, if you compare the original GATs to MMM's low top GAT (not pictured), you'll notice the same thing, but they also have a gray stripe, and also gray trim around around the laces where as on the original is white.

    I just bought those Margiela hi tops and I haven't figured out how to wear them. The tongue is very long and quite thick, what pants do you wear with them? Do you always tuck the pants into them?

    But there isn't an Official Peasant Sneaker Thread yet.


    And Onion, thanks for the comparo pics. I like the OG GATs styling better, the toe and suede leather with the strip in the middle, I prefer it in mid cut though. I think the thick laces on the MMM's would look good on the lowcut OG GATs also.

    Nice MMM's too, are they mint blue color?
