GIVENHCY Introduces The First Sneaker JAW
Initially seen on the Givenchy runway for FW2018/19, the JAW sneaker is Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller’s first urban sport sneaker for the house. Inspired by the multiple functionalities of a sports shoe, the JAW sneaker is named for the distinctive ‘teeth’ on its soles, yet it takes cues from many different eras, from the track shoes of the Sixties and Seventies to the high-tech sneakers that emerged in the Nineties, all while keeping its accent squarely on the present moment. With a streamlined style and urban attitude, the JAW debuts exclusively as all-white or all-black high-tops in leather and nylon with a zip closure. Classic sneaker styles, in white, black or three-color iterations with blue or red, will follow.
