The high-end Italian brand offers handmade sneakers and clothing
Golden Goose, founded by Alessandro Gallo and Francesca Rinaldo, is a luxury Italian footwear brand based in Venice, Italy. Its vintage-inspired collections of distressed sneakers are modern, with a well-worn feel. And best of all, they’re now available in Dubai.
The brand has just opened a store in Fashion Avenue at Dubai Mall. It offers clothing and sneakers, but also The Lab – its own personalisation experience. The Lab immerses customers in a Venetian artisanal tradition, watching Golden Goose craftsmen at work. See how the sneakers are treated and distressed by hand using special brushes and a variety of artisanal techniques.
Visitors can also customise their sneakers, heading to the Laces Bar, which has different-coloured laces on show, as well as a range of fabrics and prints. Each set of laces, created exclusively for Golden Goose, is only in-store for one month at a time, with new designs arriving regularly.
For a touch of extravagance, be sure to see the Flad Ltd sneakers – made just for the flagship store. With luxurious materials, Swarovski crystals and glitter, these unique sneakers are intended to reflect the glamorous Dubai lifestyle.
