Yeah I feel the same way about GAT's, I like the gum sole, the taper of the sole, trim toebox, and the reverse angles that make up the design - if I made my own pair of sneakers I might very well incorporate some similarity to those. Just bought a pair of Japanese GAT's from supermarket recently. The CP's though, it's been awhile since I had anything so white. My girl said they are kawaii. I'm gonna start wearing them with fuller leg trousers and stuff, and look really clean.
