Some retailers have just stocked up on a new pair of sneakers that look worn – and it’s going to cost you $530 if you’re interested.
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.”
The aged and taped shoes have caused backlash on social media for mocking poverty.
