Valentine’s Day is a ways away, but we know exactly what to wear on the sweet day, come 2018.

Introducing Dior’s Amour fall 2017 pumps (amour = love in French, obvi). Dior Artistic Director Maria Grazia Chiuri may have sent models down the runway in militaristic navy, black, and denim dresses, sweaters, and sporty jacket-and-jeans combinations for autumn; however, certain accessories definitely contained a softer tinge of romance.

That’s where the Amour heels come into play. They’re classic black suede shoes with a rounded toe. Sounds a little boring, right? Well, when you turn them around, you will find a red leather heart emblazoned on the heel. They’re perfect for a date, an anniversary, or, honestly, a reminder to everyone around you that, yes, you’re full of love.

Now available at Dior boutiques only (price upon request), the minimalist shoes are made in true couture-like fashion. In the video above, you’ll see craftspeople laboriously craft, tweak, and finish every touch of material on the pumps. It begins with a sketch and ends in a pair you’ll want to wear through the end of time.
