Recently made the mistake of buying MMM white painted GATs. These things are ugly! Returned them the very next day. First of all, the painted concept feels wrong. Most shoes that provide random/discolored looks have a bit of distressing to go along with it. But the GATs look like pristine shoes with white paint smeared on them as if it were some kind of "art project". Reminds me of a fair skinned young woman sporting the make up and gray straggly hair of 80 year old. Looks far better in the picture than in person. Nobody whom sees these in person would feel they look like a higher end sneaker. The other thing I didn't like was the shape. I had expected these shoes to be somewhat sleek like CPs or chucks, yet they were more balloon like in shape. Between this shape and the glow-bright white color treatment, my eyes went straight to shoes with every fit combo I tried involving the shoes. It just didn't look integrated like a nice pair of boots would. On the positive side, the GATs are one of the most comfortable shoes I've tried and the construction quality is pretty nice. Still looking for a pair of low top sneakers that will work for me. So far the best I've found is CPs but I'm not entirely satisfied with how austere they can often appear.
