I know at one point in time I said I just couldn't justify spending a big chunk of money on a pair shoes that were INTENTIONALLY destroyed and worn in...but times have changed! The more and more I saw the distressed Golden Goose sneakers around the more I wanted them. Not only do they have a stand out appearance, but I had actually heard and read that they are quite sturdy and comfortable shoes. However I could never EVER justify spending $400-$500 on a pair of these sneakers. The problem is, they are so "in" right now that even secondhand pairs of Golden Goose sneakers are in the $250-$400 range (it helps that they are intentionally distressed so regular wear is not really noticeable)
** LOVE this bodysuit - its on sale + comes in a bunch of colors + free shipping!**
I knew eventually some regular non-reseller would be selling their Golden Goose sneakers, and it was just a matter of time before I found a pair from someone that wanted to get them sold asap vs trying to make a profit. With a lot of selling apps and platforms, there is the option to save searches so that when something similar is listed you will get a notification as soon as it goes live. And that was the exact way I found these sneakers on sale on Mercari at $160. SO much cheaper than any other pair I had seen! I bought these puppies SO fast, and I didn't even make an offer because I didn't want to risk anyone else scooping them up in the mean time.
As far as comfort, I've worn these shoes two full days without any issues whatsoever! They are heavier and sturdier than I anticipated, but that actually just makes them more comfortable shoes in my opinion. I got them in a size 8 (my usual shoe size) and they fit perfectly, so I recommend going TTS.
Below I've shared a bunch of secondhand GG sneakers ALL under $200! Just click the image to check them out.
