Givenchy artistic director Clare Waight Keller has helped breathe new life into the luxury label in a relatively short time, transforming the brand into one of the year’s hottest. For Fall/Winter 2018, Keller introduces her first menswear sport sneaker, dubbed the JAW. So named for its tooth-like sole, the high top shoe takes cues from track shoes of the ’60s and ’70s along with high-performance ’90s runners, dressing these disparate influences in a monochrome leather and nylon package. A built-in bootie adds extra warmth, while a zipper makes it easy to adjust slip the JAW on and off. Initially dropping in tonal black or white, the shoe will eventually be realized in multiple hues.

Look for the shoe to hit Givenchy’s web store and flagship outposts on August 17. In the meantime, refresh your memory of the luxury house’s Fall/Winter 2018 presentation.
