How to Care For Your Givenchy Sneakers
Wearing your most-loved sneakers regularly will enviable cause wear. If you’re looking to ensure your Givenchy sneakers remain looking their best, there are a few things you can do.
Firstly, ensure shoes are kept dry when not being worn. Keep away from water, oils, perfumes and cosmetics and avoid over-exposure to direct sunlight or heat. Sneakers should also be kept in the supplied dust bags and any rubbing against other objects should be avoided in case of color transfer.
Different leathers will require different care. For example, patent leather, used on trims on a number of styles, should be kept separate to other leathers for extended periods of time to avoid color transfer.
Vegetable-tanned leather will develop a patina over time due to the delicate nature of the material.
Ponyskin leather and suede should avoid contact with other objects to maintain the integrity of the material and prevent balding.
For fabric sneakers such as the Jaw Low-Top Knit sneakers, cleaning should be undertaken using a soft, clean, slightly damp cloth. Bear in mind that lighter-colored materials are more prone to stains and soiling.
The hardware on the women’s Givenchy sneakers including eyelets, metal-tone logos, and chain trims, will develop a patina over time.
- What are women’s Givenchy sneakers made from?
Women’s Givenchy sneakers are made from a variety of different materials depending on what style you go for.
Classic Urban Street sneakers are made from leather which makes them ideal for everyday casual wear, certain slip-on styles of Urban Street sneakers also feature elasticated bands across the top which are finished with a jacquard logo print.
Other styles such as Jaw Sneakers have a knitted fabric upper. These styles are sometimes finished with leather, suede or fabric trims, depending on the design chosen.
All sneakers are finished with a hard-wearing rubber sole which is ideal for comfort.
- How can you tell if your Givenchy sneakers are real?
Firstly check the stitching. Givenchy sneakers are made from the highest quality materials and this will be clear when ensuring your Givenchy sneakers are authentic. Things like stitching will be uniform in size and distance from the next stitch. The thread itself will be the highest quality and therefore not frayed or worn.
The quality of the leather or fabric is a good indicator of the authenticity of your Givenchy sneakers. If the leather is too soft, the structure of the sneakers will be compromised, similarly with knitted uppers, the silhouette of the shoe should always maintain its form.
Always check the logo for authenticity. Authentic logos will never have adhesive marks around them, the lettering will never run and the font will always be balanced and parallel.
Genuine Givenchy sneakers will also always come with a care guide and dust bag.
- How hard-wearing are women’s Givenchy sneakers?
Givenchy sneakers are designed for everyday casual use. They are made with high-quality materials that are designed to last but, as with any product, over time some wear and tear may be evident.
