Within the last couple years, I have quickly become a sneaker kind-of-gal. I've always had a few pairs of sneakers that I would wear on the weekends, but it wasn't until recently that I really began loving sneakers and wanting to wear them with not only jeans & t-shirts, but dresses & skirts. It was around the time I bought my first pair of Golden Goose sneakers that I began to realize just how great sneakers were, and that they would soon become a part of my every day wardrobe. Within the last year I've purchased a handful of sneakers that I rotate between and truly wear almost every single day. I've shared my love and reviews of Veja and Golden Goose, and now today I'm sharing my love for Gucci.

Why I Picked the Gucci Ace Sneakers

First of all, you might wonder why I needed another pair of sneakers to begin with. Well, as I mentioned, I've become a little sneaker obsessed. I knew I would get my monies worth since I practically live in sneakers everyday, so I decided to go with something a little different from what I had. I had actually been eyeing the Gucci Ace Embroidered sneakers for a while. As I do with almost any large purchase, I really take my time to think about it and make sure it's something I know I'll use. I was looking to add a new pair to my sneaker collection but wanted something different than my Golden Goose. I loved the simplicity and styling of my Vejas, and the Gucci reminded me of them, just a little more colorful. I thought they would be so fun with neutral outfits and not only add a little color, but slightly dress up the look.

Where to Buy Gucci Sneakers

There are a few online retailers (besides the Gucci site), which carry the sneakers. NordstromNeiman Marcus, MyTheresa, and SSENSE (which has unbelievably fast shipping) are just a few of the many stores that carry the Gucci Ace Embroidered sneakers.

FAQs About the Gucci Ace Embroidered Sneakers

How does sizing run?

  • The sales associate said most go down 1/2 a size, and some go down a full size. I went down 1/2 a size and they fit perfect! (bought size 38, same as my Golden Goose)

How do you keep them clean/clean them?

  • As of now I haven't had to do anything. They really haven't gotten dirty, other than showing daily wear. However, like most sneakers, if they do get any marks on them, I will just wipe down with a damp cloth. I wouldn't recommend putting in the washing machine as you could ruin the shape and the colors could bleed

Did you have to break them in?

  • Not at all! I wore them the day I got them for 4+ hours and had no issues!

Are they comfortable?

  • Yes! They are actually very comfortable. Lightweight, easy to walk in, don't need breaking in

Would you pick the Golden Goose or Gucci?

  • This is such a hard question, they are two totally different shoes and make the same outfit do something completely different. It's too hard to pick one over the other as our styles my differ. But you can read this post which might help you decide

How does sizing compare to Golden Goose?

  • I normally wear an 8.5 (I'm on the smaller size). For Golden Goose I have all size 38, which is the same size I took for the Gucci. Sneakers tend to run a little bigger than heels/sandals, which is why I size down.

How does sizing compare to Gucci Princetown Mules?

  • As I mentioned I'm a 8.5 (38.5). I got the 39 in the mules and 38 in the sneakers

    I use Bleche white to clean my sneakers (https://www.amazon.com/Westleys-800002224-Blech-Wite%C2%AE-Tire-Cleaner/dp/B006WDSS4E). It is meant to clean the white rubber part of tires and it works like a charm on sneakers. I use a nail brush to apply/scrub.

    I also have these sneakers and love them! At first they were a little uncomfortable on the top of my foot so I just re-threaded the laces a different way and they were great after that. I once wore them traveling from UK to USA total of 17 hrs and NEVER felt the need to take them off. I use a miracle sponge to clean them, works great.
