Luxury brand the Golden Goose released its latest pair of sneakers, the Pink Suede Skate Superstars -- a pair of ultra lush skate shoes which are scuffed up before consumers even break them in.

Skaters are known for their beat-up kicks which acquire their shabby look after many hours of intense skating. Though beaten down apparel is usually trashed and replaced, its distressed look has become a popular streetwear style. Profiting off the latest fashion fad, Golden Goose has created the Pink Suede Skate Superstars which are Italian- crafted low tops that feature a pale pink upper and silver duct tape accents.

Smudging and material distressing are present throughout the design while the brand's logo is printed on the tongue. Though these shoes portray a dilapidated look, they retail for $495 USD.
