Looking for a comfortable sneaker that’s stylish enough to dress up when needed? If so, the popular Golden Goose sneaker may be just the perfect pick for you.
But with a brand new pair of Golden Goose sneakers running upwards of $600+ bucks a pop, I wouldn’t blame you if you’d consider settling for a pair of really dope Golden Goose sneaker look-alikes or a really inconspicuous pair of Gold Goose sneaker dupes as a budget-friendly alternative.
Golden Goose is an Italian high fashion brand based in Venice, Italy launched by Alessandro Gallo and Francesca Rinaldo. Golden Goose sells handmade distressed sneakers — yes, you read that right. While I myself am a lover of all things fine and fabulous including pricey designer shoes and bags, it’s a bit painful for me personally to justify buying a pair of sneakers (that’s already distressed looking) for hundreds of my hard-earned coins 😬.
To be fair, not all of Golden Goose sneakers are “distressed”. But either way, if you’ve stumbled upon this blog post, chances are that you too would prefer to keep some of your hard-earned cash in your pocket by snagging a perfectly good pair of Golden Goose sneaker look likes.
I’ve got you covered! I’ve rounded up for you all the Golden Goose sneaker dupes I could find online for men and women alike. If designer dupes (here are some more of my favorite luxury designer dupes) and look-alikes make you happy, read on.
How to spot a good Golden Goose sneaker dupe?
No one wants to walk around with a pair of sneakers (or anything fr that matter) that are clearly fake or knock-offs. A good way to avoid this when shopping designer dupes is by styles that aren’t necessarily trying to copy the original style exactly but instead are obviously very inspired by it. When shopping for look-a-likes of anything, I like to shop brands that I’m familiar with like Steve Madden or store brands I know are reputable like DSW (I’ve featured some Golden Goose look-a-likes from them below). like
The Golden Goose Superstar Sneaker
The Real Deal Holy Field
The Golden Goose sneaker is a popular shoe amongst fashion bloggers and everyday style connoisseurs alike. It’s the sneaker that doesn’t look too… sporty— as if you’re headed to run a marathon or coming from the gym. Its simple signature star emblem and simple design make it an easy sneaker to dress up and dress down. Additionally, the Golden Goose sneaker is super comfy for walking and casual everyday wear.

1. Golden Goose Superstar Sneaker Dupes by Steve Madden.
Wether intentional or not, I’m not sure, Steve Madden is a fashion brand that always just so happens to carry styles that look very similar to luxury designers brands — at a much cheaper price. Just take a look at this sneaker style named “JREZUME PEWTER” (not sure how you pronounce that). It’s clearly inspired by the Golden Goose superstar sneaker, and it’s just a fraction of the price.
