N° 62 WS details

Initially designed in the 1930s as a running shoe for men, the GAT trainer then found its way into the training halls of the German Bundeswehr, hence the name German Army Trainer, and later onto the streets of the world. This popular trainer is characterized by its distinctive narrow cut and the velour leather feature elements, which visually accentuate the forefoot area. Our handcrafted version of the classic is strongly oriented towards these timeless elements, which is also evidenced by the color-contrasting rubber outsole. At the same time, we set a modern, feminine accent with the heel section and narrow leather stripes along the sides made from shiny patent leather. The so-called German Army Trainer successfully combines both sportiness and elegance. Ideal for a variety of casual leisure wear combinations.

German Army Trainer

German Army Trainer

The German Army Trainer (GAT) originated in the Olympic Games of 1936, when gold medal winner Jesse Owens first started wearing such handcrafted leather shoes. These were characterized by the forefoot section, which visually divides the trainer in two. Over the years, what was once a running shoes with spikes has become a regular trainer with a flat rubber outsole and has also established itself outside the sports halls.

Trainer Last

Trainer Last

The trainer last is very similar to the sporty last — it also ensures wearing comfort at the ball of the foot. This type of last is distinguished by a gently rounded toe cap, flat instep and roomy overall width. Suitable for average-width feet.

SHOEPASSION - ONE STEP FURTHER

Made in EU

While most of our peers in the shoe industry are still unable to guarantee shoes that are »made in the EU«, we’re able to prove that our shoes are just that. We use leather from France and Germany, manufacture our shoes in Spain, and run distribution and logistics in Germany—our shoes are 100% made in Europe.

Environmentally sustainable

For many companies, all that matters are the profits; they fail to take notice of the disastrous conditions under which hides are taken in Bangladesh, or shoes are manufactured in China. We turn instead to traditional European tanneries and Spanish craftsmanship, to the benefit of man and nature alike.

Pricing

Our promise: since you’re purchasing directly from the manufacturer, you’re spared the typical high margins. You’re also spared the additional cost of paying for a brand name. Thanks to our advantageous wide reach and our low cost structure, we’re able to offer sensationally low prices.

Transparency

From the provenance and treatment of the leather we use, to the conditions in our Spanish factory, to delivery with our logistics partner, we don’t leave any stone unturned. We provide copious, transparent information on every step in our supply chain.

Our team

SHOEPASSION.com was founded by a pair of shoe lovers, and each and every employee focuses on satisfying our shoe-loving customers. Whether it’s graphic design, sales, marketing, editorial, or customer service, we handle all aspects of our business internally, ensuring our total control over all processes. We’re also owner-managed.

Your feedback

Your opinion is important to us; that’s how we define our business. If you’d like to express your satisfaction with our products and services, let us know. You can read reviews from other customers as well as experts in the shoe industry on the SHOEPASSION.com site. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

The values we live by

Lots of brands are quick to conceal the production methods behind their products, as well as the origins of the materials they use. We, on the other hand, have nothing to hide. From the very beginning, our products have been »Made in the EU«, in the classic sense. As such, we treat both our fellow man and the natural environment in a way that’s ecologically sustainable and ethically responsible. Each step on our supply chain is entirely transparent for you to see—that’s a promise we’re happy to stand by.
