Givenchy introduces JAW by Clare Waight Keller

The JAW sneaker is Artistic Director Clare Waight Keller’s first urban sport sneaker for the iconic French brand.

Initially seen on the GIVENCHY runway for Fall-Winter 2018-2019, we are finally seeing a closer look into one of the most hotly anticipated shoes for F/W18.

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.

The JAW high-top sneaker will debut in Givenchy boutiques and online starting on August 17.
