Many a product from Dior‘s SS21 lineup has started to gradually become available to consumers such as its Year of the Ox-themed red envelopes to commemorate Lunar New Year as well as its Atlas Sandal. And now, the French luxury label is reverting our attention back to its line of footwear with the unveiling of the Dior-ID sneaker for women.

The new contemporary silhouette is engineered with a lower profile and minimal design cues. Uppers are built from a luxe calfskin leather, and feature contrasting stitches present from the forefoot to the ankle. Leather banners are stationed on both sides of the forefoot, the lateral wall printing out “Dior-ID” in gilded lettering. A shroud conceals every part of the laces except for the ends with which you tie them, and bleeds down onto the toe box where rigged textures reminiscent of the adidas Superstar‘s shell toe are formed. Moreover, a canvas overlay is installed on the heels and is color-matched to the aforementioned banners.

Bottoms aren’t extremely tall in height, but they do give the shoe somewhat of a chunky and dimensional look and feel to them. Several colorways including a white/green, white/nude, white, black and more are available right now via Dior’s web shop for $1,150 USD. A short snippet of the production process behind this shoe can be found here.

In case you missed out, Kim Jones recently announced a Dior Men’s FW21 collaboration with artist Peter Doig.
