Celebs Who Adore Italian Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers

Golden Goose Superstar sneakers are perfectly worn in

Distressed, broken in, well worn—whatever you want to call them—Golden Goose Superstar sneakers are the perfect luxury item for casual days.

Pre-distressed, pre-scuffed up sneakers are a real thing and are being reimagined by other luxury designers, not just GGDB. Saint Laurent and Adidas have also taken notice to the desired worn in look, but as you would from our Italian roots, we’ve had an undeniable love affair with Golden Goose since their inception in 2000.

The Italian sneakers are created by husband and wife team Alessandro Gallo Francesca Rinaldo in their native city of Venice. The two draw inspiration from travel, art and long standing local artisan traditions. The couple has said that “Golden Goose was born like a dream of two people in love, united from a strong passion.” Furthermore, the distressed look that the brand has grown to become notoriously known for, began as a homage to the West Coast’s rich skateboard culture.

Last year we shared their handmade process with you—Italian craftsmanship at its purest.
