10 Best Dior Heels
Table of Contents
Dior’s heels have remained a popular item in their catalog since their inception. The difference between a pair of Dior heels and any other pair of high heels is that while the latter can help you stand out, the former stands out on their own.
I’ll be ranking my picks for the best Dior heels so that you can decide which ones deserve a place in your closet. You might just have to dust off your pedestal first because you’re going to want to put the shoes above everything else in your footwear collection.
Finding The Best Dior Heels
You probably don’t need me to tell you this but Dior heels are big investments. They are quite expensive because they come from one of the most renowned designers on the planet.
That being said, price isn’t everything. Finding the best Dior heels comes down to knowing what you prioritize in a pair of shoes.
For instance, do you want the most affordable shoe available regardless of how much it costs? Or, do you have a more flexible budget and want to splurge on a pair of heels you can rely on for all your events?
Also, consider when, where, and how you’ll wear your pair as you read through my picks for the best Dior heels.

What Are the Most Popular Dior Heels?
Although Dior makes heels of all varieties—including pumps, slingbacks, and stilettos—there’s a clear winner of the popularity contest. The Dior J’Adior shoe is easily the most popular heel in their collection.
One reason for their popularity is because their design is so adaptable.
You can purchase the Dior J’Adior shoe as a lower or a higher heel and in multiple colors. And nearly every one of them looks good enough that I’d dump my bank account to build a collection of them.
Do Dior Heels Run True To Size?
I’ve seen conflicting information regarding whether or not the best Dior heels run true to size. Dior claims that their shoes are true to size but then they add that shoppers should order half a size larger than their regular size.
This is confusing because if they run true to size then why would you need to order a slightly larger size? Well, it’s because Dior heels are relatively thinner than other heels.
So, purchasing a half a size above your normal size should give your feet a bit more real estate to move around in.
Internet commenters have also said that they usually buy Dior heels either half a size or a full size larger than their true size. With all that said, here’s my recommendation: try Dior heels on in person before you buy them if possible.
How Can You Tell If Dior Heels Are Real?
You can sometimes tell if a pair of heels is real or fake based entirely on how they feel.
For example, the Dior J’Adior has a permeable material that allows air to flow to your toes. So, they should feel light and airy—whereas fake Dior heels will feel cheap even though they look the same.
Also, real Dior heels have a thicker heel for the most part, so take a look at the heel’s width to determine if your pair is real or not.
Where Are Dior Heels Made?
The majority of the best Dior heels are made in Italy. There are some shoes that the brand manufactures in Spain but I’m unsure if this includes their heels.
How To Style Dior Heels
You can match your Dior heels to a sleek pair of pants that follow a similar color scheme. Styling them like this promotes synergy between the shoes and the rest of the outfit.
Plus, it allows the heels to shine without coming off like you’re trying to showboat.
Another way you could style Dior heels is by wearing a skirt or dress that ends above your knees. This gives the luxurious heels more ‘room to breathe’ so that they’ll act as the focal point of your outfit.
