My Instagram grid has been peppered with these Golden Goose Superstar sneakers – a favorite of celebs and bloggers – a lot lately. It took me awhile to hop on the bandwagon, but now that I’ve taken the plunge on a pair, I wanted to share my feedback & tips to hopefully help (if you’re thinking about getting some but aren’t quite sure yet!)
My Honest Review
I really like them! I love white sneakers in general and get a new pair about once a year so it was fun to get a pair with a little extra flair (the suede star and metal logo detail on the heel). They have a lot of versatility so I’ll be able to wear them with jeans, shorts, skirts, dresses, anything really.
I have a wide foot but these shoes, despite being constructed of stiff, heavy duty leather, didn’t feel too narrow on me. They definitely take a few wears to break in a bit but will become more comfortable and the leather is starting to mold to my feet over time.
Where to Buy
You can obviously get them on the Golden Goose website, but if you’re based in the US or UK, getting them from a local online retailer like some of the following will be easier & faster shipping:
Ssense (Canada & North America)
They are also available in-store at these Golden Goose brick & mortar locations.
Are They Worth It?
I think it really depends if they’re worth it to you based on your lifestyle and preferences. I have always preferred wearing sneakers over any other type of shoe. My work environment is very casual, and I wear sneakers every day. Since I don’t have to spend money on suits (or even business casual wear), investing in a nice pair of shoes that I can wear to work every day as well as the weekends makes sense for me. I also don’t really like the feeling of wearing sandals, so sneakers tend to be my summer shoe of choice as well.
In terms of quality, the shoes are leather with a rubber sole, so they’re built to last (the star on mine is suede). I also love how the the brand encourages styles that look dirty, scuffed, and even downright destroyed. I opted for one of their most simple, clean styles for versatility, but as they go through normal wear & tear, they’ll still be trendy & consistent with the feel of the brand.
Golden Goose is an Italian brand and therefore has European sizing, so if you normally wear American sizing, just check a quick comparison chart to make sure you’re getting the right fit. I’m a US size 8 and got a 38.
These no-show socks were recommended to me by a friend (and fellow GGDB lover) and I love them. They don’t slip, stay hidden, and will increase the longevity of the shoes by keeping them fresh. They’re also currently on sale for $10 for a three-pack.
Would I Buy Again?
I think so – I only say that instead of a full yes because I expect to wear these for awhile and get several years use out of them so I can’t think that far ahead. Unless for some reason white sneakers become a major faux-pas, I don’t see why I wouldn’t!
