We Didn’t Think They Made Shoes Like THIS—But They’re Selling Out At Nordstrom!

We’ve seen a lot of shoes in our days (we do consider ourselves experts) but we’ve NEVER seen shoes like this before. In a complete uproar of disbelief, one single pair of bizarre looking shoes sold by Nordstrom nearly broke the internet last week.

The shoes in question: Golden Goose Superstar Taped Sneaker. Described by Nordstrom as “Crumply, hold-it-all-together tape details a distressed leather sneaker in a retro low profile with a signature sidewall star and a grungy rubber cupsole” in the item details, these sneakers are not what you usually expect to find on the department store’s website.


Retailing for a steep $530, these sneakers look more like the pair your mom threw out as a kid than they do high-fashion but nonetheless, due to popular demand they completely sold out.

While we’re having trouble understanding the appeal, a single customer review left on Nordstrom’s website gives us a clue as to what people saw in these beat-up sneakers.

“Love these shoes. These shoes are perfect for my feet. I needed a new pair and love this style. It gives me fond memories of my childhood,” read the review.

Would you wear these sneakers?
