Confession…I pretty much live in jeans and sneakers on the weekends…all day long. I decided it was time to investigate the Golden Goose Deluxe Brand Sneakers (GGDB) and why I might need a pair of these crazy expensive shoes.
I’m going to tell you all about these Italian made kicks and answer the question “Do I think they are worth the splurge”?
First, a little order of business. I post ALOT of outfits on Instagram that do not always make the blog and I would LOVE for you to follow me on both the Instagram and Pinterest platforms. It is super easy to shop my Instagram looks. Just click the ‘Shop’ tab above and then click ‘Shop My Instagram‘.
GOLDEN GOOSE DELUXE BRAND
I work from home and wear sneakers 3-4 days a week and I love them! I find myself always looking for the newest styles and the cutest ways to wear them…not just with jeans and a t-shirt, but with dresses, shorts, camis, blazers, etc. and have always been drawn to Golden Goose. They are so dang cute, but I wasn’t sure spending an upwards of $400-$500 on sneakers was worth it.
Let me tell you a little bit about my experience with purchasing my first pair of GGDB sneakers. I am a true 8.5. I ordered a 39 because GGDB does not come in half sizes. They were too big. I re-ordered them in a size 38 and they fit like a glove. I do not wear socks with these shoes.
The leather is pretty stiff at first and I wasn’t sure my feet were happy with me my first full day of wearing my GG…but the leather began to give after the first week or so and these sneakers now feel like house shoes. I love the GG Mix Match Sneakers that I ordered. The fun mix of gold and silver make these the perfect sneak to wear with all my outfits!
ARE GOLDEN GOOSE SNEAKERS WORTH IT?
GGDB are hand made in Italy, so quality leathers are used, and no shoe is identical. I love this because its is like wearing a piece of art on your feet. One of the signature design elements on almost all Golden Goose sneakers is distressing. So these sneakers come ‘scuffed up’ which gives them that cool factor. Think of it as buying distressed designer jeans…we pay good money for that distressing…the more distressed and rips, the more expensive.
Another cool feature is the hidden wedge sole that gives a little added height and elongates your legs. It’s not noticeable just by looking at the shoe, but as soon as you put the sneakers on, you’ll see what I mean. I feel like this feature also helps to make them that much more comfortable, sort of like memory foam.
Golden Goose sneakers come in so many cool designs and colors, from simple gold or silver to zebra, leopard, glitter and camo. From low-tops, high-tops, and simple white Pure Stars…they really are art for your feet!
I will definitely be buying another pair. In fact, I have my eye these leopard beauties.
So yes, Golden Goose Deluxe Sneakers are WORTH. EVERY. PENNY!
You can find GGDB at Shopbop, Revolve, Nordstrom and Intermix. Net-A-Porter, My Theresa , SSENSE and Far Fetch also have great selections of Golden Goose.
I realize these sneakers are not for everyone but if you are a sneaker girl and wear them 2-3 times a week, I would highly suggest investing in a pair of Golden Goose. If you are considering some GG, I hope this information helps your buying decision. Be sure to scroll down to see my Golden Goose Deluxe Brand picks!
