Editor’s Notes: This week Givenchy officially introduces its all-new JAW sneaker, a clear reference to the iconic cult movie of the same name from 1975 that terrorized beachgoers and forever gave great white sharks a bad rep. The shoe also accounts for artistic director Clare Waight Keller’s first urban sport sneaker for the house.
The name comes from the outsole’s design, as it resembles a jaw with teeth, which reminded designer Claire Waight Keller of the iconic movie JAWS from 1975.
Debuting in all-white or all-black, Givenchy’s JAW launches in stores and online August 17.
Now, here’s how GORE-TEX infiltrated the streetwear and sneaker world.
