Dioract (dad) sandals question....


Mar 1, 2021
Hi! I have them and can confirm they run true to size and are very comfortable. I also have the Chanel dad sandals, they run a little big so I went down a half a size. The soles of the Chanel sandals are much harder than the Dioract but I still find them comfortable as well.

I tried them on at the boutique. TTS with some room at the toe (Like a birkenstock fit which is a bit big)
comfortable. I wear a birkenstock Arizona (valentino and other designer collaborations) and I found these ungainly even for a dad sandal. (I do have a chunky chanel double strap sandal, but not the dad Sandal model. So I passed. JMO though.
I tried a 37 in these. For comparison, I’m a 37 in dior sling backs; 37 Manolo, 37 golden goose; 38 valentino (some models); 37 gucci Mormont loafers; 37.5-38 in a chanel ballet flat depending on year; 38 chanel espadrille; 37.5 brooks running sneaker

All wearing the toes lower than the ridge bit?! Do they give and will they only get bigger?
