Golden Goose

Golden Goose sneakers were some of the first deliberately scuffed sneakers to appear on the market in 2000, soon cultivating a cult following and undoubtedly starting a trend. The brand was created by Venetian designers, Francesca Rinaldo, and Alessandro Gallo, who were fashion newcomers at the time. Today the brand encompasses an entire lifestyle concept, with the idea that the “worn” quality sends a message that the sneakers have been on a well-loved journey, and encourages the owner to keep exploring.

While these sneakers may look distressed, the aesthetic statement doesn’t sacrifice a high-quality level of material and craftsmanship. The shoes are all hand-finished by Italian artisans, and the leather is as soft as butter—giving the feet a truly luxurious experience sans the pain of breaking in new shoes. Golden Goose is inspired by the combination of modern style and vintage feeling.
