Golden Goose strives for “perfect imperfection” – manual touches, such as fading, scuffs and delicately frayed edges, are paramount to the artisanal warmth of their sneakers.
They describe this effect as “touched with life” – a handworked process that imbues a bit of personality and soul into each and every pair.
Their style is inspired by locales all over the globe – ranging from the fashion focus of Paris and Milan to the skater culture of Los Angeles.
They reinterpret these motifs in small ways – such as full-surface glitter, distressed denim accents and English eyelets across the toe.
The silhouette of a Mid Star nods to both skate shoes and the classic oxford – just one of the ways they redefine the casual shoe.
Despite their popularity in modern streetwear, what is oft overlooked is Golden Goose’s dedication to craft – each shoe is handmade from fine Italian leather and carefully designed to be comfortable immediately.
Ultimately, each pair feels as though it has lived many lives before… ending up in your hands despite being fresh out of the box.
