Givenchy pulls a Yeezy with its Monumental Mallow shoes for Fall 2021

From Kanye West’s Yeezy offerings to Crocs collaborations, the world has no shortage of weird, wacky shoes. Now, French luxury brand Givenchy is giving us even more options.

Enter the new Monumental Mallow shoes, designed by creative director Matthew M. Williams. We first saw them on Givenchy’s Fall/Winter 2021 runway show, along with the wilder, wedge versions that drew comparisons to Alexander McQueen’s Armadillo boots and Minnie Mouse’s heels.

While the wedges have already been worn by Kylie Jenner, it’s the Monumental Mallow low shoes that might become the freaky footwear of choice this season. Resembling a minimalist take on the Yeezy Foam Runner, the shoes are marked by their sculptural shape. Each shoe features a square toe, a wavy collar, and raised folds that are reminiscent of the slashes in Lucio Fontana’s paintings. (Coincidentally, Givenchy had previously designed a store inspired by the artist, too.)

Form is matched by function: the Monumental Mallows, like the Bottega Veneta Puddle boots that became an Instagram sensation last year, are crafted entirely from rubber, making them waterproof. They’re also light and comfortable, and wearing them merely requires you slipping your feet into them.

All of which will make the unisex Monumental Mallows a must-have in many people’s books. Luckily for them, Givenchy is offering the shoes in an array of neutral hues, including pairs in shiny rubber instead of matte. There’s also a “hybrid” version made of mesh and rubber, which comes fitted with their own ribbed knit socks.

All that convenience can be yours for S$1,400. Otherwise, the Givenchy Monumental Mallow low shoes are priced at S$950 for matte styles, and S$1,050 for shiny styles.

Take a closer look at them below.
