Gats are probably my favourite trainer style ever but they just don't fit my feet. Tried so many different brands and none of them fit. Had to settle for avenue BWs in the end to get as close to the look as possible. I see them on other people and get so jealous

Have you tried reproduction of found GATS? Shape is completely different to Margiela, Adidas etc. Wider and shorter is the best I can describe it.

I assume these are the same as Reproduction of Found, as also those are made in Slovakia. Quality is very good on those, I actually prefer them to MMM GATs because of the smaller tongue and complete absence of branding.
These are cheaper, might be just a touch worse in terms of quality, but the main cons on my side are tongue label and heel branding. i love them as clean as possible

Cheers mate. Hows the sizing?

I’m an 8.5/9 in Nike depending on model, 42 in most CP’s, 9 in Adidas and I take a 9 in Margiela so I’d say tts.

M&S GATs were the best, even more comfier than the MMM at a fraction of the price

MMM Gats been my grail for a long time. Copping them for £240 is a steal if you ask me.

Quite like the look of those novestas.

I have Adidas GATs and the OG German ones. Wear them all the time.

I got a pair of the black MM GATS last week for £160 off Depop, brand new, wanted them for ages but wasn’t paying £300+ Always worth checking on there.
