    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,

    http://cdn.styleforum.net/6/6e/6ee5e78c_gatsizing.png

    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.

    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.

    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?



    Arent those for sale on MMM's site for 225ish right now?

    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.

    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.
