Dior has debuted the DIOR VIBE SNEAKERS – a womenswear exclusive that reimagines a classic running shoe with “Dior’s couture spirit.” This is the hottest drop of the year for female sneakerheads. I am glad I waited for my first pair of Dior Kicks.

The silhouette is shaped like a combination of a chunky dad shoe and a futuristic runner, featuring white mesh and a transparent rubber insert across the upper. Arriving in two colourways, a gold and a silver option, the shoe is simple yet maintains the label’s luxury cues throughout.

Created by Maria Grazia Chiuri, the shoe sees some of her signature elements, such as the star charm at the back, and embellished with a ‘Christian Dior’ signature on the tongue. Yes, to Logo feet.
THE Drop of DIOR VIBE SNEAKERS
As a woman, I’ve always found it hard to find good sneakers. It is a sentiment many have echoed – especially by those with small feet – and most of us just want the men’s shoes but in a wider size run. Plenty of brands have also gone for a “shrink it and pink it” approach, re-imagining pre-existing products and turning them pink, or creating “girly” trainers because they are for girls. But we female sneaker culture want other colourways, styles and something feminine.
Dior’s Vibe sneaker is a breath of fresh air. It is simple, sleek, and an all-around great shoe, and will become an instant favourite for sneakerheads. It has taken inspiration from performance shoes including Asics and New Balance, whilst still maintaining its core DNA. Bravo, Dior. So what do you think Cop or not? Watch my feet.
Retailing at £860, ($1,152) the Dior Vibe is currently available to shop on the label’s website. At this rate, I’ll be putting a pair of these on my wishlist (alongside a pair of the B23’s, which is still one of my all-time favourite silhouettes from the label and thankfully, comes in an inclusive size run).
