High-end Italian clothing brand Golden Goose is getting some serious blowback this week after the internet noticed it was selling intentionally roughed-up sneakers ― made to look like they're dirty and held together with tape ― for $530.

Golden Goose made a pair of sneakers nearly identical to it's latest release back in 2016.

A pair of "crumply" sneakers created to look like they are held together by tape have caused massive outrage online. The pair of sneakers is selling online on American retail chain Nordstrom's website for $530 - that's approximately Rs 38,000!

The "Superstar Taped Sneaker" stitched together by Golden Goose is described 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".

However, many seem to think the sneakers are "distasteful" and "offensive". "The duct tape reinforcements appearing on the [Superstar sneaker] style pay homage to the West Coast's skater culture - professional skaters, who have inspired the brand's shoe collections from the beginning, fix their shoes with the same kind of tape".
