“Not every pair of sneakers are made for everyone.” ~ Dee Wells
I get it and, yes, I’ve been obsessed with sneakers since I was 6-years-old, but when I saw these sneakers I thought…….WTF!
When a company called Golden Goose Deluxe Brand @goldengoosedeluxebrand. is selling a pair of ‘distressed’ and taped pair of sneakers for $530 this confirms how out of touch some people are!
Are the people that made the sneakers so disconnected from society that they don’t realize that these sneakers just might be what a person who may be poor, homeless, fighting addiction, and dealing with self-doubt wear?
How could you even for a second think that these were cool to make?
All of this made me wonder, out loud, “Who buys these sneakers?”
I did some research about Golden Goose Deluxe Brand and they’re an Italian 🇮🇹 company that was created in 2000 by Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo, two self-described “young Venetian designers, outsiders until then to the world of fashion.”
Again, I get it, these sneakers are not for me, but there is obsessed and then there’s a thing called lacking empathy and being plain stupid.
