If you love standout sneakers, chances are you’re already well acquainted with Golden Goose, a luxury Italian brand renowned for their iconic star logo and intentionally distressed kicks. The brand channels the casual knockabout cool and sporty persona by embodying a philosophy centered around the beauty of  “perfectly imperfect.”  
Established in 2000 by Venetian designers Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo, Golden Goose has become one of Italy’s most successful brands of the past decade. Each pair of Golden Goose shoes is hand-crafted into a well-loved, aged pair of high-quality leather footwear, with the belief that sneakers improve with age, owing in part to the fact that they are designed to look worn—which means you don't have to worry about scrapes or scratches.   
The store will showcase the brand's latest collections alongside its signature sneakers. It has also introduced the Dream Makers section, where customers can customize their shoes by adding crystals, studs, special charms, laces, and more with a range of techniques from distressing and embroidery to hand-painted details.   
The store's interior of exposed concrete walls and floors, gray color scheme, and sleek, minimalist light fixtures are all edgy references to the company's Venice headquarters. 
M/F, Emquartier, 626 Sukhumvit., 020781418, Open daily 10am-10pm
