You Can Get Golden Goose’s Popular Distressed Sneakers for Over 50 Percent Off Right Now

Golden Goose’s polarizing distressed sneakers are available now for more than half off.

The Superstar Jersey model features a denim blue upper that’s been doused in bleach and paint. Further details include a stained sole and small rips. Raw edges compliment the distressed look, while “GGDB STAR” branding appears at the outer side. Inside, a french terry liner keeps things comfortable, even in the summer heat.

In August, Golden Goose was criticized on social media for its expensive pre-distressed designs, with some calling the brand’s duct tape-covered shoes “poverty appropriation.” Golden Goose responded by saying it was proud to be a pioneer of the distressed trend.

“[Golden Goose] is actually proud to highlight its pioneering role in the booming of the distressed look, one of the current biggest trends in fashion,” the brand said in a September statement.

The Golden Goose Superstar Jersey is made in Italy and often sells for more than $500 at retail, but select sizes in this style are available right now for $249. Grab them while they last.
