The Dioressence is made for the colour-loving heel enthusiast who loves a Parisian-chic staple stiletto in her shoe closet

The beauty of a pair of Dior stilettos lies in the subtlety of all its details: The flattering décolleté, the pointed extremity to elongate the leg, and especially the delicate heel. Dior's reinvented stiletto, the Dioressence, retains all these qualities, cementing its status as the newest quintessential pair of heels every woman needs in her closet.

With a heel done entirely in leather to elevate the silhouette and highlight the curve of the leg, the Dioressence is crafted a few kilometers outside of Venice, Italy, where shoemaking know-how is a story of passion and regroups more than 100 manufacturing steps. This pair comes in a variety of materials, from satin-finished lamb to patent or iridescent calf leather, along with a wide array of colours, including black, pink, ochre, military green, cognac, Trafalgar red, bronze, anthracite gray and a myriad of blue from ink and azure to navy and midnight.
