The Newest Addition to my Shoe Collection | Christian Dior J’Adior Slingback Ribbon Pumps Review
Christian Dior Slingback pumps have been on my radar and wishlist for a while as I adore the cute J’Adior ribbon but I didn’t like the kitten heel on these Dior shoes. As soon as I saw the high heel version of the J’Adior slingback in this fashion houses store I was sold. What makes them unique and special to me is the logo ribbon which I haven’t seen anyone else do. As well as Christian Dior’s gold lucky symbol on the sole. Here’s my honest, non-sponsored opinion and complete Dior slingback review.
Dior J’adior slingback pumps review
Dior J’Adior slingback pump review. I’ve tried to share everything I think you need to know before buying Christian Dior shoes. Dior shoe sizing, quality, where to buy them, the different heel heights and colors available from this luxury fashion house.
What colors and fabrics do the Dior slingback shoes come in?
The Dior slingback pumps come in so many colors, prints and fabrics now in both the kitten and high heel version. Like most of us, I already have lots of nude and black pumps and didn’t want another pair.
I wanted something a bit different and if you’ve known me for a while, you know how much I wear and love pink. Which is why when the pink Dior slingbacks popped up in my size I hit buy.
This seasons Houndstooth version is so stunning and elegant and such a great statement shoe. Since they’re black and white, they’ll go with pretty much everything from dresses to pants to jeans.
The new Dior white and gold Toile de Jouy would be beautiful for a Spring and Summer heel or even as a bridal shoe. For a classic everyday shoe, their black or nude calfskin is perfect for work, going out and everyday. It’s also calfskin leather which is more durable and scratches less than lambskin.
Dior Shoe Sizing
I find the Christian Dior slingbacks run big and sized down 1/2 a size even though they have a pointy toe. My girlfriend ordered her regular size. Their website says that they run true to size but to order half a size larger than your normal size. So I’d definitely recommend trying them on in a store!
If you can’t get to a store I’d suggest ordering your regular size if you have wider feet and 1/2 a size down if you have a narrow heel as the ribbon is fixed so you can’t tie it looser or tighter.
How much do the Dior J’Adior shoes cost
The ribbon Dior slingback pumps range from $950 (before tax) for the solid color slingback pumps to $1450 for the embroidered versions.
What heel heights do the Dior Slingback pumps come in
These Dior shoes come in 3 heel heights, flat, 6.5cm/2.5″ heel and 10cm/4″ heel which is the pair I have.
Are Dior slingback heels comfortable?
If you’re used to wearing high heels then yes. I find the Dior slingback pumps comfortable even with the pointed toe and the ribbon doesn’t cut in. If you’re looking for a comfortable shoe, you could always order the flats instead.
Are the Dior shoes worth it?
Honestly, that comes down to your budget and how much you want to pay for a pair of shoes. All fashion house shoes tend to be quite expensive. Dior’s quality is consistent and these are everything you’d expect from Dior shoes.
I found mine listed in ‘excellent’ condition on Fashionphile which brought the price down a lot. They also have a great return policy, so if they don’t fit you can send them back and order a different pair in the right size.
The J’Adior slingback pump is a prime example of Dior’s savoir-faire.Dior
Dior Slingbacks In Store Now
The latest Dior slingback pumps in store now. The beauty of Dior shoes is that you order them online directly from them with free shipping. They do change their styles quite often and the prices have been going up quite frequently over the last couple of years. So if you like a pair, get them before the style is discontinued or the prices go up.
If you’re looking for a bridal shoe, the J’Adior Slingback pump in white cotton embroidered with silver-tone strass is so elegant.
Dior Pumps From Fashionphile
These are where I got my Dior slingback heels from. Fashionphile is a pre-owned, ultra-luxury goods store and you can choose the condition the item you’re looking for is in.
My Dior slingbacks were listed in ‘excellent’ condition and showed no signs of wear. The only reason they weren’t listed as ‘giftable’ is because they came without the box. They have various Christian Dior shoes, both newer and older styles if you’re trying to hunt something from past collections down.
