There is nothing like a perfectly broken-in pair of sneakers. And since having some dirt on your shoes can be seen as a badge of honor, it’s not a surprise that some designers are selling shoes that look like they’ve been worn for months.

Case in point: Golden Goose sneakers. These cult-favorite kicks are famous for their distressed look and even more distressing price tags — we’re talking upwards of $500 a pair. While naturally people love to rock the label and are happy to shell out big for a pair, not everyone can throw hundreds of dollars at a pair of shoes. Furthermore, not everyone has the time or skills to DIY a pair of regular sneakers to look worn in.

Even though Golden Goose sneakers have wildly expensive price tags, they remain popular and are a total It-Girl shoe. In fact, the hashtag #goldengoose has over 490 million views on TikTok. The tagged videos are full of people showing off their new pairs and others debating if the shoes are worth the money.

Luckily, several other designers out there make sneakers that have the same vibe as the Golden Goose brand but are much more affordable. Keep scrolling to shop six pairs of sneakers that have glitter, star and distressed accents — but are all $100 or less.
