Sneakers, the comfortable option of the fashion footwear world, have been getting some lovin’ lately. From landing the role of Kendall Jenner’s go-to, to actress and activist Gabrielle Union opening a store dedicated solely to super fancy sneaks, the shoes are having a definite *moment.*

Golden Goose, a deluxe fashion brand, has stepped up (ha, ha) their shoe game, too, producing distressed sneakers for a particularly hefty price: $600.

Who knew it could cost around $600 to look “effortlessly” cool? Last time we checked, it took a fair amount of effort to reel in a cool $600 paycheck. But, we digress.

Slightly cheaper, but still blowing our minds with that price.

So, it’s safe to say that distressed sneaks are in. However, you may want to forego spending hundreds of dollars and instead wear your pair of less-expensive shoes on a hike to give them that “distressed” treatment.
