Take the Bite

DA MAN - - Essentials -

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.
