Hello, Mes Amies! Happy Mid-week. Mid July too, summer PLEASE slow down.

Today's post is due to the question I get pretty much anytime I wear my Golden Goose sneakers.... "Are they worth it?" It's a very fair question. They are pricey. If you are going to make the investment, you want to be sure that they are worth it.

Long story short, yes, they are worth it, in my opinion.  Here is why:

First off, the just look so cool. 
I know, it sounds adolescent to lead with this. Yet, its what initially drew me towards wanting a pair. 
Also, they have a built in wedge heel. Although it cant be seen from the outside, its effects can. It sneakily makes your legs appear longer and leaner. Who wouldn't love that?

They are comfortable.
When I see some people say that these "really are not that comfortable" I'm left to believe that they did not get the correct size. These are so comfortable. There was no "breaking in" period. I can wear them all day long. Whether it be running errands, walking Decoy, or even a day at the office, I can have them on for 10+ hours.

You can wear them with anything.
They look great with jeans, shorts, skirts and even some dresses. If you use this matrix to factor in cost per wear, they are suddenly a lot more affordable.

They are an all season item.
I live in New England. Typically, my summer and winter footwear are VERY different animals.  However, these work in all seasons. Again, the more I get to wear them, the less of a splurge they are. I truly think that I'm going to snag another pair this fall.

Now, if  you don't want to spend the money on these, I completely get it. Luckily, there are MANY look-a-likes out there. Full disclosure, I do not own any of these "dupes". I cannot attest to the comfort or quality. Still though, I wanted to give you options.

Okay, there are the "dupes". However, like I said though, I do think the real deal is worth it, if your budget allows.

What do you guys think? Would you buy a pair? Or, are you more about getting the same look for less? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
