DIOR. The moment the brand name is enunciated, it elicits a sense of reverence and an understanding of quality that has been unmatched for the last 75 years. Known for its designs that redefine ‘femininity’, Dior has always been at the forefront of high fashion. A stellar example of the label’s penchant for creating innovative & original work that is still steeped in tradition is the Dior J’adior slingbacks. Launched in Paris at the French brand’s Spring 2017 show, the Dior shoes have become an instant must-have for fashionistas around the world. 

As a part of the J’adior collection that is a playful take on one of the popular phrases by the brand — ‘J’adore Dior’ meaning ‘I love Dior’ — these slingbacks truly embody the always elegant aesthetic that the brand continues to master. The J’adior heels have a lot to offer that you can’t help but love. Here are a few of our favorite things about them!

Dior J’adior Slingbacks Shoes that make you fall in love

One look, and you will want to have a torrid affair with this French pair! The distinctive silhouette is constructed with three main elements that come together harmoniously to create a shoe that straddles logomania, timeless sophistication, and glamour all at the same time. They are the toes, the straps, and the heels. 

Dior J'adior Slingbacks The toes appear in a classic pointed shape that has a stately charm everyone admires. They are not sharp and edgy; instead, they have a softness which complements the curved toplines that are conservative in showing toe cleavage. 

The element that makes them a part of the J’adior collection — the straps — catches all the attention. Inspired by ribbons and the sense of innocent femininity they offer, they are primarily crafted in a contrasting hue and made to carry the collection name throughout. The flat bow on one side adds to the seamless strap that delicately holds the ankle in place. 

The heels round up the elegant pair with a nod to the brand’s glorious past. The Dior J’adior slingbacks come with comma heels — a heel shape popularized in the 1950s by Roger Vivier, who was the shoe designer for Dior then. The comma heels are shaped like the common punctuation mark we all use and are inverted towards the inside. In addition, these heels are placed near the arch-line rather than away from it, providing comfort and stability. 

Dior J’adior Slingbacks One pair is never enough

Dior J'adior Slingbacks Imagine bending down and slowly slipping the straps over your ankles, adorning them with the quaint bow while your toes wriggle slightly only to find themselves in a snug fit that offers comfort. Once slipped on, the feet are elevated on heels giving an illusion of lengthening reinforced by the lack of a strap in the front. This considered design is offered in a multitude of colors, materials, and heel lengths that make them approachable and versatile. This variety is what makes one enter the world of J’adior slingbacks to the point of no return, where one pair is just not enough!
