Golden Goose Dupes and Alternatives

If you follow Influencers and bloggers on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed a lot of them wearing the same sneakers with stars on the side that, to be honest, look like they’ve been worn and that most people would be horrified to wear because they look so grungy. These sneakers are by Golden Goose. And fun fact…they range from $480 to $600.
