Derived from Aesop’s tale, “The Goose That Laid The Golden Eggs,” Golden Goose was founded in Italy in 2000 by two young Venetian designers Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo. Aesop’s tale is associated with good luck, and the same can be said for the premium footwear brand. Golden Goose pulls inspiration from west coast skateboarding combined with the refined aesthetics of Italian craftsmanship. Golden Goose sneakers take on the Japanese concept referred to as ‘knitsukuroi,’ meaning that objects look better with more wear and tear to them. Each Golden Goose shoe comes out of the box brand new, but still looks vintage and worn in. The premium distressed sneakers have gained mass popularity since their launch, and are primarily known for iconic silhouettes like the Super-Star Sneakers, Ball Star Sneakers, Pure Star Sneakers, Glitter Star Sneakers, Stardan Sneakers, Sky Star Sneakers, and more.
Another stand-out item featured in Golden Goose’s latest styles includes the Golden Goose Women’s Super-Star Sabot. The sneaker is a must-have within any summer sneaker rotation. The premium design features a leather upper, while the slip-on design is comfortable and convenient in its construction. The real-dyed shearling and leather placed within the lining add optimal comfort, while the all-over intentional distressing and scuffing accentuates Golden Goose’s authentic worn-in aesthetic. The metallic cotton laces make a bold statement, while the debossed branding at the tongue further spotlights the premium silhouette. Additionally, a distinct glittered signature star patch makes a bold statement on the side panels. The pebbled leather midsole contributes to the design’s premium comfort.
The Golden Goose Super-Star Sneakers are a premium sneaker for any rotation. Featuring a low-top lace-up font, the silhouette features a leather upper paired with a suede heel counter. The round toe is placed along with the padded collar for added comfort. Golden Goose branding is printed at the heel and makes a gold appearance on the side panel. A woven brand tag is placed at the tongue, with additional branding residing at the laces. The cushioned footbed adds additional comfort, while the intentional distressing makes a bold statement. The rubber outsole completes the rest of the design.
