The Golden dream began back in 2000, in a garage-turned-office in the industrial town of Marghera, near Venice (Italy). Once our first ‘house’ was founded, all that was missing was the right name. A name that could capture a timeless and universal intention. The choice fell on Aesop's, the ancient Greek author,  best-known fable, ‘The Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs’. Since then, we have travelled to many places that have inspired us throughout the years, exploring different worlds such as the realm of art, which has always been at the heart of every style and design choice we've ever made. And just like Aesop’s fable, our message has grown over the years and spread all over the world.


We are a Next Gen luxury brand specialized in the sourcing, design, and distribution of iconic products, primarily consisting of footwear – sneakers in particular – as well as apparel, bags, and other accessories. We have pioneered the ‘casualization’ and ‘sneakerization’ of the global personal luxury goods market, with the creation of our signature sneakers handcrafted in Italy and mastered the concept of a casual luxury wardrobe suitable for all occasions, from work to leisure. In pursuing our goal to stand out with our innovative artisanal products, we’ve become synonymous with extremely high quality, meticulous attention to detail, and our iconic lived-in signature. Our ambition is to contribute to bring the Italian handmade tradition to the world, promoting craftsmanship excellence and local manufacturing.



We were born in Marghera (Venice, Italy), developing our first garments with the help of a traditional Venetian craftsman.
