The German Military Trainer was originally manufactured in bulk during the Cold War and flooded German Army Surplus stores once the era ended. This eventually led to their mainstream adoption and ever since then, the German Military Trainer has cemented its iconic status in the fashion world, becoming the go-to for those with a discerning taste in footwear. The streamlined silhouette of the German Military Trainer is the visual key to its success. Classically, the upper features leather with suede panelling, notably on the toebox, and sits atop a thick brown rubber gum sole. Keeping relatively neutral, the simple layout and mixture of materials communicate a sophisticated feeling that sets it apart from other military shoes.
Reproduction of Found pays homage to the trainer by opting for top of the line suede and Nappa leather from Italy and go the extra mile by further lining the interior with a beautiful caramel pigskin. The manufacturing process of the RoF German Military Trainer is completed in a historic Slovakian factory, preserving its celebrated origin story while updating all other areas of the shoe to unmatched standards. For this season, we are proud to be carrying this thoughtfully recreated iconic trainer in two timeless colourways.
