The ultimate Golden Goose guide + my collection!

GOLDEN GOOSE — something I actually get asked about often – where to buy, sizing info, if they’re actually worth it/comfortable so I figured I’d sit down and pour my little heart into a blog post encompassing all things Golden Goose.

DISCLAIMER: Although I would consider myself quite the broke 23 year old, I do like to spend money on nice things (aka Golden Goose). It takes a lot of budgeting to buy a pair, I won’t lie! But I truly find too much happiness in a new pair of shoes. So be broke or have fabulous sneakers? Obvi the later.

MY GOLDEN GOOSE COLLECTION

POLKA DOT MIDS // PINK HI STARS // TAN/PURPLE SEQUIN SLIDES // BLACK GLITTER SUPER STARS // PINK/MAROON SLIDES

SIZING

I am a true 8 and I wear a 38 in all styles. Some Golden Goose wearers like to size down in styles like runners or slides but in my experience I like to take my true size in all styles. I normally wear thin socks with mine or don’t do socks at all!

WHERE TO BUY

I like to look on lots of sites when I’m searching for the perfect pair but the only websites I have actually purchased from thus far have been SSENSE, Italist, Harvey Nichols, and Jomashop. I also love to browse on the Golden Goose Gang Facebook page – it’s great to get insider tips about sizing, pricing, and also buy new and used GG!

PRO TIP: Most sites will change the prices of the shoes every so often, so I always check a few times before buying. I’m comfortable spending max $450. I’ve gotten all 5 of my pairs for that or under so just know IT IS POSSIBLE y’all! You don’t have to pay $600 for a pair of GG you just have to be SMART about it! I will say though all of the sneakers are made in limited quantities so if you love a pair and the price is right, I say go for it because they may not be there for long!

Websites with Golden Goose in the name are most likely fake. If a deal is too good to be true, it probably is!

ssense // farfetch // italist // net-a-porter  // spinnaker boutique // giglio // sohosoho boutique // harvey nichols // jomashop

*** NET A PORTER TIP: CHANGE COUNTRY UP TOP FOR CHEAP OPTIONS WITHOUT DUTIES. US STORE WILL CHARGE DUTIES ON A PAIR SO THAT’S WHY THEY’LL COST MORE!!

ARE GOLDEN GOOSE ACTUALLY WORTH IT?

In my *humble* opinion yes, 100%. If you know me IRL, you can pretty much find me wearing a pair of GG 24/7. They’re my favorite shoes and oh so comfy. I wear them to work where I stand for 8 hours a day and they’re unlike any other shoe. I’m def a sneaker girl so I always find myself reaching for them no matter what! I love how each pair is a little different and they add such a cool pop to any outfit.

Howdy y’all. Hope everyone has had a great week so far! I know for me, today seriously felt like the most Monday Thursday ever. I think it’s that Wednesday off for the fourth is what threw me off! Nonetheless, I am so looking forward to this weekend as I’ll be headed up to the Big Apple. Eeekkkk! A get away for a bit to catch up with two of my closest friends is just what I need.

Last time I posted about these shoes on Instagram, I got an OVERLOAD of messages asking for details. So I figured I may as well do a blog post about em and show y’all how I style them!

Black, white, and snakeskin. Can’t get much better than that, right? I’m a sucker for a neutral outfit because I feel like I don’t have to think… I can just grab and go. Please lmk when there will be a time where black and white won’t be in style? Never. I wanted to keep everything simple and light considering it’s hot as Hades up here in Fayetteville. On a side note: I wear these shorts at LEAST twice a week. They’re a great buy if you’re a jean-shorts-to-everything kinda gal like me.

the best shoes ever

I had been lusting after these for months and they were honestly the first thing I bought while working at RiffRaff because I was so dang excited about them. I loooove how comfortable they are! With the ankle strap and 1.5″ platform — ya get the best of both worlds (style AND comfort). I couldn’t pass up getting them in both colors lol #extraaf

I think my favorite part about these shoes is how versatile they are. I’ve done them with jeans, dresses, skirts and they honestly look good with EVERYTHING. I’m even taking them with me to NYC this weekend to go with all my day and night outfits. Did I mention that they’re ON SALE? Bottom line: you NEED A PAIR. Not kidding.
