Chanel vs Dior | Slingback Heels Review

Slingbacks are a classic must-have in any luxury lovers’ wardrobe and have made a recent comeback over the past few years. Dressed up or down, slingbacks are the perfect way to elevate your outfit. In this review, I will be comparing between the Dior Slingbacks and Chanel Slingbacks focusing on four key factors; price, style, comfortability and durability. 

Style

ChanelDior
• Classic-looking
• Makes your foot look slimmer
• Looks like a granny shoe because of the low chunky heel and design
• A casual shoe that is best worn with jeans and a t-shirt
• More trendy compared to Chanel
• Has a thin stiletto heel that is perfect for any formal occasion
• Makes your foot look longer

Winner: Dior

Comfortability

ChanelDior
• Pinches around your feet – you will end up with blisters
• Would only recommend for those that have very slim feet and have a high pain threshold
• Would only recommend for dinners or places where you will be seated for most of the time
• Pointy toe shoe so it pinches around your toes – you will end up with blisters
• Back strap often slides off when walking so you’ll have to keep adjusting it
• Would only recommend it if you are purchasing the mesh heels as they will not pinch your toes
• Would only recommend for situations where you will be seated for most of the time

Winner: Tie

Durability

This is how both shoes look after being worn under 5 times. 

ChanelDior
• Goatskin leather is very delicate and can crease after a few times of wearing it
• Would not recommend for any place that has water, mud or dirt
• Would recommend placing soles on the shoes before wearing it
• Technical fabric is quite tough and doesn’t show wear as easily
• Mesh fabric will show wear and tear quickly if you wear it in non-ideal conditions
• Would not recommend for any place that has water, mud or dirt
• Would recommend placing soles on the shoes before wearing it

Winner: Dior

Price

ChanelDior
$1340 AUD
$870 USD
£710 GBP
$1490 AUD
$890 USD
£730 GBP

Winner: Chanel

Overall, considering these factors, the Dior Slingbacks win for its style and durability.

  1. I have both shoes and for me, the Dior ones are my preferred. Perhaps the size I got for the Chanel is a tad too small but I find it so annoying when that strap falls off my ankle, whereas the ribbon still looks pretty even if it’s not on right. Love your review, thanks for sharing!
