White sneakers are a staple item in every solid capsule wardrobe, but Golden Goose sneakers are some of the most in-demand kicks around. They apparently even count Quiet Luxury style icon Sofia Richie as a fan, as well as a whole host of aspirationally cool TikTokers.

But while we expect to generally splash out a lot of a pair of sneakers, especially those of the designer sort like Adidas Sambas or Nike Air Force Ones, Golden Goose shoes are some of the most eye-watering around, with most of the styles coming in at over $500 per pair.

So we've found the best Golden Goose dupes around, so you can get the edgy distressed look without spending hundreds...

Best Golden Goose dupes

Golden Goose produces a whole range of different styles of shoes for the fashion-savvy, but the brand's creations are mostly identifiable through two specific features—the iconic star design that emblazons most of their products and the distressed finish that gives the shoes their signature edgy look.

Among our best Golden Goose dupes, we've rounded up looks to replicate a whole bunch of different styles, including dupes for the Golden Goose high tops and the traditional sneakers. We've also found a few easy options to get hold of on Amazon and of course the iconic Steve Madden Golden Goose dupes.

The best dupes

If you really want to get the Golden Goose look, TikTok also suggests another way to copy the style using one of our lookalikes—or any other similar sports shoe you might own!

Just find the style of Golden Goose sneaker that you want to replicate and identify what color and style laces it uses. Then seek out a pair with a similar look and replace the ones already in your shoe. Of course, doing this on a lookalike will give you a better Golden Goose feel than doing on it one without the signature star and distressed finish—but either way you'll have something stylish to add to your footwear rotation!
