Luxury footwear line Golden Goose was born in 2000 out of founders Francesca and Alessandro Gallo’s common passion for fashion and art.

Since the married pair lacked formal design training, they partnered with Venice-based leather artisans. A high level of craftsmanship allows their maverick brand of artfully distressed sneakers and boots to redefine notions of pristine luxury.

The Venice-based brand originally known for its ultra-cool, distressed sneakers – the utmost in Italian craftsmanship – also serves up directional ready-to-wear, including tailored pieces, tees and denim, plus leather boots, heels and sandals.Italian label Golden Goose Deluxe Brand focuses on producing utility footwear with a fashion slant. Think leather high-tops and traditional suede cowgirl boots crafted from the finest materials that look even better with age.
