Time to kick off those stilettos. A new boutique in Dallas' NorthPark Center has arrived to make 2020 the year of the statement sneaker. Golden Goose, the luxury brand from Venice, Italy, opened its first store in Texas at Dallas' premier shopping center on December 20.

Known for its stylish, casual "Superstar" kicks with a vintage vibe, the store is located on level one between Neiman Marcus and Nordstrom, nestled between TOD's and Sandro.

Golden Goose, founded in 2000 by Venetian designers Francesca Rinaldo and Alessandro Gallo, has developed a following around the world for its innovative, artisan-driven shoes and other apparel. Sneakers for women, men, and kids feature bold, attention-grabbing designs (including the brand's iconic star emblazoned on the side) and run about $300 to $600 a pair.

Celebrity fans reportedly include Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. 

"In 15 years, Golden Goose has created a complete lifestyle for its customers," the company says on its website, "offering a collection that includes ready-to-wear, leather goods, accessories, and footwear, combining a refined and modern style with a vintage feeling, all supported by the strong Italian sartorial tradition."

The brand is highly selective about locations for its stores. Flagships are located in exclusive cities around the world — Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Beirut, St. Tropez, and Amsterdam.

In the U.S., the company has shops on the east and west coasts, including New York, Boston, Miami, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. In Dallas, Golden Goose sneakers previously have been available at luxury retailers like Forty Five Ten, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus.

The NorthPark store is the company's first in the Southwest. Hours are 10 am-9 pm Monday through Saturday and 12-6 pm Sunday.
