Earlier this year I made my way out to LA with Tim (https://soundcloud.com/timmaggs) to meet with some producers and videographers. While we were exploring the city we found one of the coolest shops ever! Right before we landed inside, Tim was explaining to me how he wanted a vintage jacket, something that was unique and stood out. Then we stumbled upon Golden Age Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. This was one of my favorite experiences when we were there. We were greeted by the store owner who was very knowledgeable about every vintage piece in the store. Each piece was not only unique and in great condition but it also came with a story. There were pieces from many years ago including soldier uniforms and even old mail carrier jackets. You should see how the times have changed! They have a few designs of their own including a lavish shoe display designed by Golden Age inspired by The Golden Age. Ludvic, the owner, suggested I try on the Norma Zebra style heels which were also worn by Lily-Rose Depp (yes, Johnny Depp’s daughter). As soon as I put them on I fell in love with the comfort the shoes provided. I tried on the Mina style ones as well and they were just as comfortable, even though they have some height. It was like these shoes were meant for me, they were true to size and literally perfect. However, it was still winter over here on the east coast so that meant I would have had to wait a few months before I could wear them so that day I left the store sadly empty handed, Tim did pick up a dope jacket though. The shoes never left my mind and when I got back to NY I found myself on the Golden Age website staring at all the shoes again. I told my boyfriend Connor about our time in LA and how this store stuck out to me so much. I told him how I fell in love with the shoes there and the next thing I knew I was reading a confirmation email for the purchase of the leopard Norma’s coming to me. Connor surprised me all the way from Afghanistan! These shoes showed up in a perfectly fitted box. The shoe box inside was such great quality and the shoes were wrapped in plastic and tissue paper, very secure during their shipment. They came with a silk dust bag with a gold logo printed on it. I like to store my shoes in it when they aren’t being worn, or when I am traveling. The leopard Norma’s I find really easy to match outfits with and again I cannot say it enough, they are SO comfortable!
While the styles of shoes Golden Age produces do resemble the way shoes looked in the earlier 1900’s, I can say that they are timeless! I will have these shoes for years because they are made with the highest quality materials and I always look forward to wearing them whenever I can. I suggest you take a look at their site and enjoy the unique craftsmanship of their shoes especially, you won’t find these styles anywhere else and I love that! If you have any questions please reach out to them on Instagram @goldenage_la they are so responsive and helpful!
