Christian Dior once said: “You can judge whether a woman is elegant by looking at her feet.” It seems that sentiment has remained at the heart of the name of the French fashion brand that has become synonymous with luxury footwear.
Dior’s unwavering reputation is one of refined elegance based on its commitment to savoir-faire, a French term that encapsulates the capacity for grace and elegance in social situations. And while the French designer rose to fame with his loose skirts and fitted dresses known as the “New Look”, Dior’s sophisticated pumps and low heels also helped put the brand on the map.
Besides its tasteful evening shoes and heels, Dior has also cultivated a following among the sneaker community. The hugely popular Dior and Nike Air Jordan collaboration in 2020 brought together luxury fashion and activewear. This mix of designer style and streetwear has become a mainstay for Dior, with the brand offering a wide range of trainers that never compromise comfort for style.
Ranging from classic Dior pumps to new sneakers from the French fashion house, these iconic pairs of shoes are worth the investment and will never go out of style.
J’Adior slingback pump
Perhaps one of the most recognizable pairs of Dior shoes are the classic J’Adior pumps, released in 2017. These pumps are a nod to the J’Adior slingbacks of 1962, a pivotal moment for the brand. Crafted in a distinguished black technical fabric with a two-tone embroidered “J’Adior” ribbon, these heels are elegance incarnate.
Reimagining the classic “chunky” sneaker design, the B22 is a plush take on streetwear. Crafted from black technical mesh, smooth calfskin and a low top, these shoes could add the perfect finish to an everyday casual look or an outfit for the gym.
After making waves at the Dior Winter 2022-23 show, the Idylle ballerina is here to meet all your business-casual fashion needs. Topped with a bow and an asymmetrical buckle, these pumps are chic and sober but distinctly Dior.
The Dior combat boot showcases the best of the brand’s bold design. Designed to accompany you in style, the ankle boots have a thick black rubber sole and the Dior Oblique jacquard print and are adorned with the “Christian Dior” signature on the heel.
Exuding sophistication, these Dior Code loafers are crafted from brushed calfskin, black enamel and a chunky EVA lug sole. Pair these shoes with a tennis skirt and long socks for a preppy look or dress them up with high waisted pants or jeans.
The Camp ankle boot balances high fashion with military chic. Adorned with a ‘L’Union Fait la Force’ (Unity in Faith) emblem, the shoe is a showpiece to add to any outfit and promises to keep you looking stylish in all seasons, crafted with a leather lining neoprene and a lugged rubber sole.
B23 high-top sneaker
Presented at Paris Fashion Week in 2018, the B23 is the creation of English fashion designer Kim Jones. A contemporary version of the classic high-top shoe, the oblique shoe is crafted in the iconic Dior canvas design. A sheer mesh topcoat adds texture to these designer sneakers while protecting the canvas.
Showcasing a striking yet relaxed look, the Dior Granville is crafted in the designer’s heritage fabric, Toile de Jouy in hazelnut. Adorned with the iconic Christian Dior Paris emblem, these flats are a timeless pair of shoes that fit perfectly into a summer vacation look.
