Agreed, I size down one in Dior formal shoes.
Thank you. Is $500 a good price for that shoe, or can it be purchased for substantially cheaper?
Sounds good to me. I only buy at the boutiques, so I'm unfamiliar with other prices. That sounds about 50% of what I would expect at retail, so a good deal assuming it's all legit. The construction is usually very solid.
Pulled the trigger and I finally got the shoes in. Love them!
Any tips on how to take care of calfskin? Shoe tree and/or leather conditioner necessary?
The grain on those look very similar to my dvn. Definitely wood trees. My usual routine for the dries is condition and cream polish every 3months-ish when worn 1-2 times a week. No need for conditioning out of the box though.
Very helpful, thank you!
Do you recommend that I topy the sole? This is my first foray into nice dress shoes.
I never add anything to the sole, but if I need them resoled I go to Dior (or John Lobb the other brand of shoes I wear) and have them resole them. I only need to do it every three of four years, if that, but I have a rotation of shoes.
If these will be your go to on consecutive days, then you might want to get some extra protection on the sole which is cheap but make sure it's done right.
There's something nice about having a real leather sole hitting hardwood, but not worth the trouble if these will be getting a ton of use.
I bet they look great!
Can anyone help me size 48 fits on me ? I wear size 30 for 17.5 cut, 160 lbs ,5'11 ... I'm seeking for a Dior coat but not sure size 48 fit on me ?
DIOR HOMME - Down jacket
You're a perfect height/weight for Dior, and the down will be super nice.
48 would work and give you some room to wear a sweater underneath. 46 would be a slim fit for you; might be tight.
