Designer footwear manufacturers and male fashion advisor-nistas hate us. Ivan reveals how you can become fashionable with this one weird item.

That one weird item is Sportschuhe Bw Hallenschuhe weiß, AKA the GAT. These are the German Athletic Trainers produced for the Bundeswehr in the 80s and 90s. No Reproductions here. These are the real deal.

They were designed by either Puma or Adidas, depending on who you ask. Due to the animosity, treachery, and deceit sowed by the deep, bubbling, fraternal hatred between Adi Dassler’s Adidas and brother Rudolf Dassler’s Puma, we’ll probably never know for sure.

Either way, these German-engineered shoes are among the Bundeswehr’s darkest surplus secrets. Although sometimes snubbed by the men and women of the Bundeswehr, the trainers follow a long German tradition of surprisingly chic military attire.

The GAT features a preformed removable and washable insole, lightweight adjustable tongue, secure flat laces, and double-stitched abrasion-resistant suede toe cap. The sole is designed to prevent ankle roll and is non-marking. The exterior is constructed of a smooth, sturdy, probably-cowhide material with a padded reinforced heel cap. Inside you’ll find soft, cozy padding.

It’s basically the Air Jordan (Luft Jerry?) of the Federal German Army. Fashionably militant, and militantly fashionable. What’s not to like?

Specs

  • Genuine Bundeswehr Issue
  • Puma/Adidas design
  • Washable insole
  • Anti-marking sole 
  • White cowhide construction with adjustable tongue & padded heel cap
  • Suede double stitched suede toe cap for abrasion resistance

Sizing

For your convenience, we've translated the original mondopoint sizing to the closest US size equivalents. Our translated sizing will be your "sneaker" fit in brands like Nike, or (obviously) Adidas. This means they'll fit tighter than your equivalent boot size, and it's not a bad idea to go one size up just to be sure. If you have questions about fit, don't hesitate to reach out to customer service via the live chat function or by emailing help@kommandostore.com

 

Condition

Excellent: Sneakers have seen little to no use, and may only have minor scuffs from storage which can be brushed off. No wear to the tread.

Good: Sneakers have seen moderate use, and may have scuffs, creases in the leather, and other minor signs of use. Plenty of tread left.

Sick Gym Kicks

Awesome shoes. Fit well, comfortable, great to squat in. I got them used and other than some scuffs and the sweat stained insole (which smelled incredible, btw) they’re pretty nice looking. 10/10 recommended for maximum drip factor.

Fashion-forward

Not sure what that phrase means, “fashion-forward”, but it felt appropriate. The shoes rule, toebox is a little squished but waddaya want it was the 80s. No lie, they actually are cool looking with a pair of above-knee shorts and no-shows, and it’s sorta spicy that there’s secret history to them.
