Givenchy is pleased to reveal the first sneaker style by Creative Director Matthew M. Williams.

In honing the Givenchy aesthetic for an exciting new era, Matthew M. Williams wished to focus on a refined sneaker style that fused performance and luxury in equal measure.

The result is the sleek, unisex GIV 1 line, featuring a trio of aerodynamic styles crafted in a mix of technical fabric, mesh, and embroidered and injected TPU details on the upper, layered together with high-quality calf leather. Streamlined yet visually dynamic, GIV 1 sneakers are crafted in Italy from black, off-white or crocodile-embossed leather. The 360° fully transparent, lightweight soles feature a green- gold sheen or glossy black finish and are discreetly accentuated underneath by 108 injection spots reprising in relief the House’s signature 4G emblem, which also appears on the sneaker’s side. Laces are either tone-on-tone or contrast with detailing on the tongue, giving these sophisticated urban essentials an extra shot of energy.
