Clogs edged into the spotlight in womenswear during 2021, but the uptake in menswear has been less noticeable. Aside from the love-it-or-hate-it rise to success of Crocs, the clog silhouette has been relatively unexplored by men. But, with mules having broken down barriers last year, there’s definitely room for a change here and Matthew Williams’ Givenchy is moving in for the kill.
The Givenchy Winter Mallow continues a line of increasingly unorthodox, futuristic silhouettes from the house. The Monumental silhouette and its molded rubber uppers shocked last year, and we’re still not really sure how we feel about them. The Winter Mallow has a lot going for it, though.
Let’s begin with the coziness, the Givenchy Winter Mallow is set to see out winter with a fleece lining. As for comfort, the chunky platform sole unit looks to have been transplanted from a high-tech running shoe. And finally, versatility: The Winter Mallow comes in a range of variations from the mule to a boot and even a slingback sandal, each of which is defined by the signature clog shape.
Finished by a 4G-embossed black leather upper, the Givenchy Winter Mallow never departs from Matthew Williams’ understated, sleek MO evidenced in every item that leaves the Givenchy atelier. If you’re into bold shapes, black colorways, and luxurious builds, then stay tuned because if the Winter Mallow is anything to go by, it’s going to be a year to remember at Givenchy.
