$500 duct-tape designer shoes draw outrage online

Some retailers have just stocked up on a new pair of sneakers that look worn - and it's going to cost you $530 if you're interested.

The "Superstar Taped Sneaker" stitched together by Golden Goose is described as "Crumply, hold-it-all-together tape details a distressed leather sneaker in a retro low profile with a signature sidewall star and a grungy rubber cupsole."

The aged and taped shoes have caused backlash on social media for mocking poverty.


Golden Goose made a pair of sneakers almost identical to it's latest release back in 2016.
