This dedicated Golden Goose post is long overdue as many of you know how much I love my Golden Goose sneakers and just how often I wear them. They’re my absolute favorite shoes EVER. The studded ones above were my very first pair but they haven’t been restocked since! They are one of my faves so I’m always on the lookout to see if they come back in stock. The silver snake print sneakers are also a favorite that’s been sold out, but I’m linking a similar pair here. The gold ones on the bottom are a great basic too and would be a perfect first pair to start with.
I even bought my husband, Mark, a pair of Golden Goose for his birthday so in case you didn’t know, Golden Goose has sneakers for men too! By no means are they an affordable everyday purchase with most ranging between $380 to upwards of $500, but they are worth every penny in my opinion. I’ll share why I love them so much and a quick & easy video tutorial on how I tie the laces as I’ve had a few who were curious about that.
Why I Think Golden Goose Sneakers are Worth the Price Tag
To answer that question simply, they go with EVERYTHING. Leggings, jeans, dresses, skirts, you name it. Unlike certain styles of shoes that can only be worn in certain seasons, these can be worn all-year round. They have become a staple piece for my closet and something I’ll always bring with me if I’m doing any sort of traveling because I don’t have to worry if they’ll match with a particular outfit and they’re great for any destination.
I’m all about comfort and have always loved the cozy, casual look. These sneakers incorporated into my closet so effortlessly and check all the boxes in terms of the style I was looking for.
Golden Goose Sizing
I am a 7.5 in most shoes and I size up a half in Golden Goose so I wear a 38. Sometimes they can feel a little loose so I will tighten the laces and re-tie the little knots every few months (video tutorial below).
What Socks to Wear With Golden Goose Sneakers
The quality of these shoes is top notch. Given that they are an investment piece, I expect them to still be durable after being worn over time. I’ve had mine for years and they’ve held up as I hoped they would. Because of the low profile, I wear these no show socks with them.
My Favorite Retailers to Shop for Golden Goose Sneakers
There are a lot of different retailers out there who sell Golden Goose, but my favorites are Farfetch and SSENSE. I find that they have the most diverse selection. If you’re on the fence about them or overwhelmed with all of the different styles to choose from, I recommend trying out the minimalistic styles like silver or gold. Or if you’re looking for something a little wild and different, this all-over glitter pair is sooo fun.
In any case, if you find that Golden Goose sneakers aren’t for you, they do offer free shipping and returns so you won’t have to take any losses. Although, I really think you’ll love them just as much as I do!
Easy 2-Minute Video On How I Tie the Laces On My Golden Goose Sneakers
In the tutorial below, I’m showing how to easily knot the laces to where you can slip them on and off without having to re-tie them every time. Plus, I like how it looks better versus when they are tied.
My Favorite Golden Goose Sneaker Styles
Golden Goose is always releasing new styles and these are some of my top picks. I had a hard time narrowing my choices down because there are SO many good ones. I mixed in some of the fun, new styles with more classic Golden Goose styles.
