Anyone know where to get some half decent quality GAT-type sneakers for a nice price (MMM is out the budget for me), preferably with sensible EU shipping rates? Love to have the original surplus ones, but no idea where I'd have to go to get them...
i've tried a pair not long ago and the hype dissapear instantly. Sometimes thing look great on /fa/ on trumble pic, nut it's not the same irl. Those are just white sneaker nurse core. People who paid 300€ for muh high quality sneaker are just richfag who don't know what to do with all their money so they buy overpriced shit.
Problem I guess would be that the general fast-fashion public does not really understand the value of the GAT to fashion and sneakerwear. Don't think they would sell all that well
not necessarily, but more that the general shopping public of h&m/zara etc. will not easily pick up the shoe since they don't know the significance of the it. And selling is what fast-fashion is all about
Seen them round heee lately. Thoughts? Are they only ss15 & discontinued or will they be available next season? How much should you max pay?
You're pretty delusional if you think MMM Gats quality is actually much higher than normal ones. I've owned both and quality was negligible, only real difference was that MMM had a much cleaner silhouette. You're paying that 200 something extra for the name and fuck all else.
Note that I am talking about the original army shoe as being significant for sneakerwear, how the fuck would those ever be overpriced. The significance it that it showed that a shoe could look grout without branding, being focussed on comfort with a clean aesthetic. How can a shoe not be somewhat significant if its the prime influence for a bestselling shoe for both MMM and Adidas, among others.
The only real difference in the silhouette is that the surplus ones are bit slimmer due to no padding
The quality with MMMs is way fucking better
I use the surplus ones as my every day beaters cause they are cheap but I don't pretend the MMMs aren't heaps better
But tons of people here walk around in GAT-like shoes, it's as normy as you can get. When I first saw /fa/ talk about them I was really surprised since I never saw them as fashionable in the first place
MM GAT's are the most comfortable sneaker i've ever worn, and the leather feels amazing.
Of course the cost would be effected by the name attached to it, but if you're buying designer items that should come as no surprise nor a deterrent to you. People who complain about the price of designer clothes are retarded
