Where can I get some quality NEW German Army Trainers for below 100$? I don't care if they're out of style and I don't want any made by the Margarine Margarita.
>>16186311Oh fuck under $100 soz. Can you shell out an extra 100? Scarosso is even more expensive and don't look as good.How about Adidas Sambas?
>>16186311They're $200 and I heard they're shit
>Wants good quality>Only willing to spend 100 bucksYou can only pick one
>>16186316No they're good. The black gumsole they do is better than Margiela which has decided to go brown on black lmao.
>>16186333Also the insoles on Margiela is disgraceful. Unacceptable in fact. You best have some superglue. ONLY sneakers I've owned where the sole literally came out and I barely even wore them.Margiela's shirts are often crisp packets too. Their quality is sooo variable. Never buy any of their stuff without seeing it in person.
>>16186329>>16186314I hardly leave the house and I have no bitches to impress, I just want them to have the same silllouette as the GATs without breaking the bank.I was looking at these but they seem to be uncomfortable.https://www.amazon.com/German-Trainer-Classic-Fashion-Sneaker/dp/B08RNGTXL3/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=German+Army+trainers&qid=1619976493&sr=8-1Are the Sambas still okay in terms of quality /fa/? I'm thinking of coping those.
>>16186415The Sambas are going to be better than random no-name chink Amazon shit.
>>16186336You was molested by Margiela insoles or something?
>>16186463I certainly feel I ought to be able to send them to jail for assaulting my feet with their disgraceful quality. By the way it was the insoles on BOTH sneakers that came out. Wtf.
>>16186415Adidas bw army are nice but good luck finding a new pair
I have a pair of grade A gats in storage since years, size 280 (10.5)montreal kijiji
>>16186311The sizing was way off on their low 1s. Felt one size bigger than my foot so I returned it and never bothered to get the right size. Is it the same for their GATs?
>>16187156I ordered my usual size EU 44 and all of them fit the same as all my sneakers. Only Common Projects feel too big.
Didn't Adidas directly cater to this demand with the BW Army? It's quite literally a GAT made to about the same quality as the Samba.
>>16186582the top gat is ancient
>>16186299where2cop real surplus GATs
https://item.rakuten.co.jp/auc-waiper/nob011406102/?scid=af_pc_etc&sc2id=af_117_0_10001056wait for a rakuten sale and you can get them for sub 50 bucks
>>16186299W2c these pants? They look great.
>>16186299have you tried the used vintage from broadway and sons? i’ve had no problems in the slightest with them and they’re a better silhouette than my MM ones anyway>>16186336>ONLY sneakers I've owned where the sole literally came out and I barely even wore them.lmao bro what? what sneakers do you own that don’t have removable insoles? you wore them barefoot and they stick to your feet or something? how is that a big deal
>>16186299Just wear Pumas, damn
>>16186471> it was the insoles on BOTH sneakers that came outWHAT does that even mean?
>>16187681All I can tell you is that I have owned many sneakers since I was a little kid from Reebok, to K-Swiss, to Adidas, to Nike, and never once had the soles come out on me. I've never attempted to purposefully remove any etc. I always had a new pair before they were fucked enough to be falling apart.
>>16187757That rather than just the left randomly coming loose, the right also did. So it wasn't confined to one shoe being fucked but both.I also did not ever have this problem with Common Projects.
>>16187250What's the quality of leather like on actual gats?
>>16186299can somebody id these?i also have wide feet, will it fit?
Are Beckett Simonon gats any good or is this some reddit tier Thursday boots type scam
>>16186299I have a pair of sambas in this colorway, look almost identical actually. They were like $50
>>16189346I remember Adidas had customizable sambas before on their site. Whered you get yours? Part # plz?
>>16189028Damn good, just received a pair.
i copped some rep margiela gats from playershoes on taobao and theyre literally indistinguishable from retail lmao
>>16190246Thanks for the tip. If I like them, I’ll replace them with the real deal when they fall apart.
>>16186299get a pair of adidas bw army’s from resellers that clear out outlets.i got my tan pair for $50 bnib
>>16190890Any tips for scoping them out?
>>16190246this is what happened to my surplus gats.get the ones from player shoes on taobao. they are super nice quality from the price.
>>16191563player shoes makes a copy of the surplus (BW-SPORT) gats too (out of nicer leather) if you don't want the margiela branding
>>16191565Do you have a link? I’m having trouble finding it.
>>16192854look harder newfriend
>>16193758Will I need an agent for these if I live in Nevada? Also what size should I pick if I'm 9 in most US shoes? 42?
>>16193809I've used agents before, but I've also been able to ship direct using Taobao's own shipping (I'm in Australia). Shipping direct is a lot cheaper for me, but you'll have to do everything in Chinese (it's pretty easy)I went TTS. I'm normally 10/43, so I bought 43. I think they are slightly smaller/narrower than the average 43.subreddits like r/QualityReps have heaps more info about agents, sizing, etc.
>>16193829Thank you. It's ridiculous how elusive these meme shoes have been for me without spending half a grand or using ones from the Scooby Doo era.
