2019 is here and yet the sneaker bubble that saw fruition in 2018 has not burst – thankfully. Despite reports of a possible decline in the “ugly sneaker” wave in the coming years, luxury brands are still releasing iterations of hyped silhouettes, and this time, Givenchy have dropped its George V Sock Sneaker.

Already with a slew of variations available, the sock sneaker has been adorned in a grey marle colourway, for the next best neutral next to black. Featuring a high-top stretch knit upper, the outer is set upon a tonal rubber midsole and boasts quintessential Givenchy branding in the form of a pull tab.

Reminiscent of the much loved Balenciaga sock sneaker, this is the more minimal design for those who like to stay low-key, while sporting high-key style.
