Golden Goose, an Italian Shoe Brand, manufactured the Superstar Tape Sneaker which are worn out, dusty and taped-up.

Suffice to say that once the internet got wind of the tape sneakers, it was not a happy camper (incidentally Camper is the name of another shoe brand that has not yet resorted to fusing home improvement items with its footwear). 'Do these idiots know what it's like to be living in poverty.

The Golden Goose sneakers, dubbed the "Superstar Taped Sneaker", boast "Crumply, hold-it-all-together tape" and "a grungy rubber cupsole".

That description added fuel to the fire for one Twitter user who wrote: 'Just saw the taped sneakers that are trending and apparently poverty is considered "retro" now'. This is terrible. Insensitive.

And he played down Jack's' financial significance to the group: "It's not a calculation that we're now doing", he said. The German duo have eaten up their market share by offering products at knock down prices.

If the idea of spending over $500 on shoes that are seemingly held together by tape confounds you, you're not alone. She asked, "Who's in the room when you design these?" That my embarrassment & struggle is being marketed disgusts me'. "The duct tape reinforcements appearing on the [Superstar sneaker] style pay homage to the West Coast's skater culture - professional skaters, who have inspired the brand's shoe collections from the beginning, fix their shoes with the same kind of tape". Last year, the company sold a pair of jeans featuring fake mud for more than $400.

Back in 2016, the luxury designer launched a similar model of tape-up sneakers, this time in a shade of pink.

As soon as this shoe was released online people started expressing their thought on Twitter, some people went ahead and called the design distasteful and stupid.
