    I mean this guy dresses like a gay dork larper- these guys never quite grow out of wanting to be happy days extra but German army trainers initially became a trend because of how versatile and neutral the GAT sneaker was. These are a remake from Maison Margiela from the replica line which is dedicated to meticulously taking apart clothes then painstakingly recreating them (but fashun)

    Some footwear just doesn’t go out of style, I think the GAT is a good one to add to the collection if you are getting through your late twenties and you start to age out of other branded sneakers. People fall for the Margiela meme, buying a 500 dollar literal rep of a 100 dollar show is crazy

      I bought a pair of gats from beckett simonon for 100 bucks during their annual sale and they’re very well made and comfortable to walk in. I would highly recommend buying a pair at that price. they’re made to order so they would be shipped out in a couple of months but it’s worth the wait.

      Theres nothing meticulous about margiela replica line apart from the price
      Gats are cheap trainers not some high fashion shoe

    I lived in Germany and stocked up on them before moving back to America. I like they way they look and literally have never seen anyone but myself wearing them

    I’m a dripless tourist that has never visited /fashion/ before.
    I’m partial to the Nike Decades, but I recognize that it’s just because of the meme-factor.

    What shoes are these and is there any specific reason people like them? They look plain and like you could get them at any ol’ Target.

        I could care less what they cost. They just look generic and unoffensive, but for some reason they’re popular enough to make OP get confused and for people to talk about them like they’re clearly completely aware of what he means. I just wanted to understand, chill.

          look

          1. You can keep them looking new and wear with almost any casual type outfit.
          2. You can wear them in like vans/converse and use them in any outfit that sneakers look good in.
          3. They are comfy, cheap, and practical.
          4. They are the anti-moron lover shoe sneaker.

          just a great all-rounder beater, a popular meme on this board worth falling for

    Only unironic sociopaths still dress like this in 2023. It screams
    >Hey I’m in the upper class of a sinking ship
    as if any of that still matters at this point.

    I got a pair of novesta gats for like £90 and ever since i can’t stop seeing asian women wearing the margiela gats at university. I agree they are plain and boring but that is what i like about them. They are as basic as white air forces but not as clunky looking.
