I'd be interested, but can we get some pics of the shoes. I bought a pair of GATs that ended up being completely dried out and fell apart after two months. Would these be factory fresh or are they old stock from years ago (don't know anything about GAT production).

I would probably be in as long as they are in new/almost new condition. Not really interested in getting those shitted up ones you see some people get from the german ebay

The ones that look somewhat beat up are of superior quality compared to the one that was posted above. Leather quality on those are shit and feel like plastic. Kunk is going to blow his head off when he sees this thread.

I got the ones pictures above in a proxied group buy on Sufu for $50 last summer. Very comfortable and holding up very well, although I don't beat up on my sneakers and also rotate through a number of different pairs so they are never getting constant use. I love them though

Alwaysnevernyc had them, but cant get onto their site right now. The toe shape is sharper, sole is darker, and laces much much better.

so doing a little bit of math the only way I could proxy the shoes would be to charge like $80-90. Not sure exactly how much maybe it could be a little less than that, and for whoever wants to cry and say its too much just keep your mouth shut or buy $400 mmm's
