12 Best Dior Sandals

Best Dior Sandals

It was as early as 1947 that Dior, then run by founder Christian Dior, started making footwear. In those days, it was footwear for dressing up, as women mainly wore dresses and Dior shoes were made for special occasions. 

Now Dior makes dressy sandals as well as a couple of casual styles, updating their footwear collections regularly.

Although this article is about the best Dior sandals, it is also about finding the ones that work for you. On that note, let’s take a look at what you want to consider when finding the best Dior sandals.

Finding The Best Dior Sandals

Unlike Dior’s selection of slides, their sandals make up a smaller collection. Like the slides, you need to decide where you want to wear your Dior sandals before you buy them. 

If you are going semi to really dressy, the Dior Dway Sandals are something you should consider. If looking for something more casual, I like the Dior Act Sandal.

The other thing to consider is where you plan to buy your Dior sandals. I recommend buying only from reputable retailers but if you are going out on your own, you should note a few obvious aspects that tell you whether the ones that you are buying are real Dior or fake.

The 12 Best Dior Sandals

As noted previously, your selection of Dior sandals is limited but inclusive. The best thing about sandals though is that, unlike slides, they are more versatile

You can get dressy slides but they aren’t usually award-ceremony-worthy. Besides, heels without a strap are much less comfortable than those with a strap-like sandal.

The more casual styles even imitate slides, giving you the option to wear them anywhere, during any activity, all without the worry of them flying off your feet. While Dior slides say classy and relaxed, Dior casual sandals say classy and going places.

So, finally, here you are, the 12 best Dior sandals.

What Are the Most Popular Dior Sandals?

Best Dior Sandals

The most popular Dior sandals are the Dior Dway Sandals. These are heeled sandals that come in embroidered or metallic colors and also have smaller and larger heel sizes.

Emilia Clarke and Rachel Zegler wore these particular ones in silver to award shows.

Do Dior Sandals Run True To Size?

Best Dior Sandals

On the Dior website, they say that their shoe sizes run true to size, but they also suggest that you take a half size bigger, especially if you have wide feet. 

This may be of particular note for heeled sandals which often require a smidge more space and are worn in warmer weather when our feet are slightly larger.

How Can You Tell If Dior Sandals Are Real?

Best Dior Sandals

There are a few ways to tell if your Dior sandals are real. The first is that, if there is writing, it is absolutely symmetrical in the real version. No titling, odd spacings, nor fading. 

In contrast, the pattern, if there is one, is not symmetrical or consistent. These aspects are in the more casual styles of Dior sandals.

For all styles, the footbed of a real Dior sandal is defined, smooth, and rounded. Fakes are made of a grainier material and are less comfortable.

Are Dior Shoes Good Quality?

Best Dior Sandals

Dior shoes are one of the best quality women’s designer footwear available

They source the highest quality materials and use strong threads for stitching so all in all your Dior shoes should last you a long time. All of the brand’s footwear is made in Italy or Spain.     

How to Style Dior Sandals

Since Dior sandals have been popular at award shows, let’s take a look at how they were worn there. 

Firstly, it’s no big little lie that Rachel Zegler looks like a sassy princess in her Dior dress and sandals at the Critics Choice Awards. Her dress is so long that you can barely see the sandals but when they peep out, they look amazing.

Since you can barely see those beautiful Dior sandals in the last pic, I found “Mother of Dragons” Emilia Clarke wearing them to another award show.

With a midi dress, you can really see the sandals and Emilia’s beautiful legs. Short or long, any dress or skirt suits these sandals.
