I recently grabbed my first pair of Golden Goose sneakers after having them on my wish list for quite some time now and wanted to share a review with you all + talk about how to buy these sneakers for less!
If you are not familiar with Golden Goose sneakers, they’re Italian sneakers that come pre-distressed. So, they already have that worn, “dirty” look. They also come with a luxury price tag with most ranging from $300-$500+. To be completely honest, when these sneakers started becoming more popular, I was pretty skeptical at first. I mean, why would you pay that much for dirty shoes?? But after reading countless positive reviews on them and eventually falling in love with a specific pair, I decided to save up and get them.
For starters, I am completely in love with mine and 1000% understand the hype behind the sneakers. They are easily the most comfortable pair of sneakers I own and they go with endless outfits! And if you are going to spend that much on sneakers, they should go with tons & tons of outfits. Pair them with leggings, jeans, dresses, skirts - anything goes with these. I also love the cool street style vibe they give to a look!
The quality of the leather and shoe as a whole is absolutely amazing as well, which explains the steep price tag. These shoes will last you years and years, and just look better over time. If you splurge on a luxury shoe such as a pair of white Gucci sneakers or something along those lines, they come looking brand new with no scuffs or anything on them. Naturally, when you would wear those shoes, over time they would get scuffed or dirty, making them look old and reduce the resale value in them. Personally, if I had a pair of $500 sneakers that looked brand new with no scuffs on them, I would never wear them for fear of messing them up.
But! With Golden Goose sneakers, you don’t have to stress about getting yours dirty because the worn look is exactly how they are supposed to be. So, you can wear your Golden Gooses without any worries of messing them up which I actually love.
Overall, I am so happy I got my hands on a pair of these. I have already worn them with soooo many outfits and can’t wait to style them in the upcoming seasons! Many of you have asked if I think Golden Goose sneakers are worth it and my answer is definitely yes. However, because of the price they are not something I would just go out and buy on a whim. They would be a great item to put on your Christmas or birthday wish list or something to save up for to treat yourself!
Now onto how you can get a pair of these for less! If you have your eye on a specific pair, I would recommend checking out eBay to see if someone is selling your style for less than the retail price. eBay has a huge selection of authentic Golden Goose sneakers with so many of my favorite styles included. You can even refine your search to only show items that are New with Box if you want a pair that is brand new. If you don’t mind them pre-used, you can snag of pair of Golden Goose’s for an even better price. For sizing, I feel that they run true to size. I am typically a US7 and ordered a 37 in my sneakers. When searching on eBay, I would recommend filtering to show only your size so you can narrow down your search and make sure you are viewing sneakers available in your size.
