Dior has debuted the Vibe Sneaker – a womenswear exclusive that reimagines a classic running shoe with “Dior’s couture spirit.”
The silhouette is shaped like a combination of a chunky dad shoe and a futuristic runner, featuring white mesh and transparent rubber insert across the upper. Arriving in two colorways, a gold and a silver option, the shoe is simple yet maintains the label’s luxury cues throughout.
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.
Dior’s Vibe sneaker is a breath of fresh air. It is simple, sleek, and an all-around great shoe, and will definitely become an instant favorite for sneakerheads. It has taken inspiration from performance shoes including Asics and New Balance, whilst still maintaining its core DNA. Bravo, Dior.
