Selena Gomez Wore Controversial Sneakers to Film Her New Movie

Selena Gomez is arguably the queen of cool sneakers, so we're used to seeing her wear both classic styles and new trends on a regular basis. This week, Gomez has been flexing her acting chops in New York on the set of the new Woody Allen film (also starring Elle Fanning). While on set today, Gomez was spotted wearing a classic outfit combination of a white tee, jeans, and sneakers—much like something she'd wear in real life. Naturally, we were curious as to which sneakers Woody Allen himself may have approved for Gomez's character, and we quickly recognized them as the style with quite a controversial past: Golden Goose Deluxe Brand's Superstar sneakers.

You may recall that last fall, people were up in arms that the brand was charging hundreds of dollars for pre-distressed sneakers. While Gomez's scuffed white kicks are a little tamer, the pair in question featured duct tape and torn laces. As a result of the backlash, Golden Goose even issued a statement, saying that they were proud of the pricey controversial sneakers, which paid homage to the West Coast's skater culture.

Whatever your thoughts may be about the sneakers, you can't argue with the fact that Gomez wears them well.
