People Are Outraged About Nordstrom's Taped, Dirty-Looking Shoes On Sale For $530

September 21, 2018

Buying "Dad shoes" is one thing. But purchasing new shoes with dirt and tape already on them – for more than $500 – is quite another.

At least that's according to plenty of shoppers who are sharing their anger on social media in response to a pair of shoes being sold on Nordstrom's site for $530. The Golden Goose sneakers, dubbed the "Superstar Taped Sneaker," boast "Crumply, hold-it-all-together tape" and "a grungy rubber cupsole." In other words, the shoes look as though they're dirty and falling apart.

Italian brand Golden Goose also offers plenty of other worn-looking sneakers for upwards of $500. They have a collection that, as it says on their website, includes footwear that combine "a refined and modern style with a vintage feeling."
