Take the Bite
Marking Clare Waight Keller’s first venture into sneaker culture, Givenchy’s JAW sneaker has all that it takes to be the next big thing. In hindsight, the Jaw sneakers are named for the distinctive teeth on their chunky soles—which, at one point, has taken the footwear industry by storm. The sneaker, meanwhile, is inspired by the multiple functions of a sports shoe, taking cues from different eras— from the track shoes of the sixties and seventies to the high-tech sneakers that emerged in the nineties. The Jaw debuts exclusively in a combination of leather and nylon, with a trendy zip closure. Now, it is offered as all-white or all-black high-tops, with blue, red and yellow to follow.
