The Dior Sneaker Sizing Guide
Unsure of what size you need in Dior sneakers? We recommend purchasing a half size larger than your normal size. For example, if you are typically a size US 7, we recommend purchasing a size US 7.5 for a better fit.
Use the chart below to match Dior’s European sizing with your usual size. You can also take a measuring tape and start from your longest toe to the back of your heel, to match the length of your foot in centimeters with corresponding sizes.
How to Care For Your Dior Sneakers
To ensure your Dior sneakers stay in great condition, we recommend taking a damp cloth and a mild hand wash soap to spot clean your shoes when necessary on cloth fabrications. For leather, take the damp cloth and clean the surface. For more difficult stains, we recommend consulting a Dior boutique or your trusted shoe repair store for assistance.
