Unless you've been living in a bunker you have probably seen the ugly shoe trend everywhere *ahem chunky dad shoes* One particular shoe that has become very popular is the Golden Goose distressed sneaker. These retail for nearly $500, and are so "in" that you can barely find them cheaper secondhand. I could never drop so much money on a trend where the shoe is actually supposed to look dirty!
I did a little research and found that online store Shein actually offers a variety of Golden Goose inspired distressed sneakers at a tiny fraction of the price! Every single pair is under $30! I ordered the white pair and have worn them so far through two days of post office runs, thrifting, and being on my feet all day. And I have to say they are incredibly comfortable and supportive! I am super happy with the quality and feel. One suggestion is to definitely go up one full size. I am usually a 38 / 8 and went up to a 39 which fit like a glove. And now I get the cool sneaker look without having to drop $$$ on shoes that will probably be out later this year. I've linked them down below, just click the picture to shop!
If you have your heart set on owning an actual pair of Golden Goose sneakers I've linked a few secondhand pairs below all under $300 through TheRealReal. Some are even under $200!
