A German Army Trainer Anomaly

Everyone loves to love German Army Trainers, but for the most part they are only available in two extremes: super cheap, but basically-never-available, authentic versions from the real Germany OR super expensive, if not beautiful, "replicas" from brands with names you pronounce wrong roughly half of the time. Which is exactly why these versions from National Standard are such an anomaly—both inexpensive (on sale for $131) AND readily available (all normal human foot sizes are available at the time of me writing this outside of 43). This means you should buy these, like, right the fuck now. These really are the stuff style dreams are made of.

      Honestly, most things about them. The silhouette, the construction of the upper (aside from slight differences around the toe box), etc. They’re not an exact replica of a genuine GAT but there’s nothing else that they would be inspired by. Here’s a photo of an all white authentic army trainer for reference. http://img230.imageshack.us/img230/4766/mmmak.jpg

        “…there’s nothing else that they would be inspired by.” Stan Smiths? Tennis Lows? CPs? I’m incredulous that you can’t see the GAT is a fundamentally different shoe.
