If you like to follow bloggers and celebrities on Instagram, then chances are that you’ve come across Golden Goose sneakers more than a few times. The “it sneaker” doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, but they are definitely a luxury purchase. Today I’m giving my honest review and opinion on if they’re worth the splurge!

Golden Goose Sneakers:

I’ve been eyeing Golden Goose sneakers for a long time now, and even ordered a pair about a year ago from Nordstrom. I ended up returning them because I had chosen a pair with pink accents, and decided I wouldn’t get enough wear out them. I also went back and forth on spending $500 for a pair of sneakers that come already looking dirty. If you’re unfamiliar with the brand, the sneakers are made to look “worn” and come with marks and stains on them. This look is definitely not for everyone, but I’ve actually come around to it. I’m the person who freaks out when I get marks on brand new white trainers, so it’s nice to not worry about that with Golden Goose.

There are several different styles of Golden Goose sneakers to choose from, and my review will cover 3 different styles: The Superstar Low Tops (this is the most popular style), the Ball Star Low Tops, and the Slide High Tops (pictured in this post).

Superstar Low Tops: This is by far and away the most worn style of Golden Goose sneakers. They come in an endless array of colors and patterns, so you can find something that suits your style. While most people love these (they are the Insta-famous style after all!), there was something off about them for me. The soles have a slight platform in them, which means that while they look like a flat sneaker, they’re actually giving you a bit of height. This causes them to hit very low on the ankle, making it impossible to wear socks without them showing significantly more than they should. I have friends who are more than fine with wearing the sneakers without socks, but I’m not someone who finds that comfortable. I thought about wearing liners with them, but I feel like those slip down after 10 minutes. For $500, I wanted to make sure I absolutely loved them – which meant the Superstar style wasn’t for me.

Ball Star Low Tops: This is one of the newer styles, and I hadn’t seen them in person before I ordered them. I loved the cracked leather detailing and off-white soles. They have a vintage basketball sneaker look to them, and I was hoping they would be the answer to my Golden Goose troubles. Unfortunately, they have the platform soles similar to the Superstar sneakers, so I had the same issue with my socks showing too much. I will say that this style was significantly more comfortable than the Superstars, and I prefer the overall aesthetics of these.

Slide High Tops (pictured): I wouldn’t consider myself a high top sneaker kind of girl, but I had seen these on Instagram recently and loved how they looked on a few of my favorite bloggers. I decided to give Golden Goose one last chance! As soon as I put them on, I knew I had finally found a winner. They too have the platform soles (clearly this is to be expected in all Golden Goose styles), but since the shoe is a high top it didn’t effect my ability to wear socks. They’re super comfortable, and thanks to the zipper on the inside ankle, they’re really easy to slide on and off. I’ve styled them with everything from jeans to dresses and love how they work with so many different looks. I went with a very neutral white and grey color combo to ensure I would be able to get tons of wear out of them, but they come in lots of fun variations.

I hope you found this Golden Goose review helpful. In terms of sizing, they are TTS. I ordered a 38 in all 3 pairs (I wear a size 7.5/8 shoe, so size up if you’re a half size). What are your thoughts on Golden Goose trainers? Do you have a pair?

    And now I want a pair more than I did before!! I had no idea there were three different styles so I really appreciated this review Mollie. I agree that at first purchasing such a pricy item that already looks worn in was at first weird to me, but I’ve been seriously loving them more and more lately.
