GERMAN REPRO BUNDESWEHR ARMY TRAINERS

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 faithful reproductions of the German Athletic Trainers produced for the Bundeswehr in the eighties and nineties.

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 Addidas 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?

Fashionable as heck

Been looking for a GAT-type shoe for the longest while, and I finally found it. Unfortunately, the shoe runs a little big, so I recommend sizing down 1 - 1/2. Overall, the shoe feels and looks great, although I had to give mine away cause it looked goofy on my feet.

German Army Trainer Reproduction

A very nice sneaker at a very nice price. The overall look of the shoes is great and minimalist when it comes to fashion. They are also an excellent workout shoe, but not so much a running shoe. Fits great and true to size overall, but it has a feel closer to a pair of sneakers than a pair of running shoes

Looks good, feels good

Real comfortable and damn nice looking, like everything the krauts design. Very well made, so good on the repro producers.
