These sandals were exactly what I was looking for!! I wore them to a wedding and danced in them for about 3 hours! No problems whatsoever! I ordered a half size larger and they were perfect.

I love these sandals. This is my second pair, wore the first till they all but fell apart. One thing, be careful about getting them wet as the leather will curl and they won't look as stylish.

this good looking flat is too narrow for me. I always wear 7.5 in this brand but this one is small.

3 pairs later and I'm still without what I thought would be my next great pair of shoes. On the 2nd day of wearing the first pair the zipper on the right shoe woudl fall done after walking about 50ft. The 2nd pair didn't make it on my feet, found a big blemish in the finish of 1 shoe and the 'insole' coming up in the other. On the 3rd pair both zippers fell down on day 1 after walking maybe 30 feet. I have to say Zappo's was fantastic about handling each one, staying true to customer satisfaction and doing their utmost to take care of me, which is how I ended up with a 3rd pair. I was done at 2. Unfortunate as these are fabulous shoes, very comfortable, very stylish and will go with anything, dressy or casual. HIghly disappointed. Debating whether to buy direct from manufacturer and see if I end up with the same problem. THanks for trying, Zappo's!

Best looking dress shoe I have ever owned and the most comfortable. Problem with this shoe is the poor quality, after two uses the shoe started detaching from the sole. Not what you expect froma $275.00 shoe. Still love Pliners.

LOVE These Shoes! At first they feel a little different, but very comfortable. Be sure to give them a chance. Color is great also, just what I was looking for.

Great-looking shoe until you put it on. The opening for the foot is very small and the front edge of the topline rolls over like a loose sock. There's no structure in that area so it's literally just soft, rumpled leather bunched up. Returned my pair -- I need these for travel and it took me three minutes to get the test shoe on my foot, so I have a feeling they're not ideal in the airport security line. Great materials, beautiful construction, but a mess of a design.

Really comfortable and cute but zipper keeps sliding open as I walk.

Outstanding styling, fit and finish. Made in Italy. Comparable in quality and styling to Ferragamo at half the price. Highly recommend.

Anytime you have a shoe like this that zips up the back, you have to be prepared for it to be ill-fitting! I wear a size 9, but ordered this in a 9.5 as well. Neither worked! The 9 was so tight across my toes that in the short time I had them on (very short...as in 1 minute!), I could feel my toes going numb. I tried the 9.5 and the band across the toes felt much better, but the shoe was slightly too large and that was evident by the space between my heel and the back of the shoe. They are a pretty shoe, with a bit of shimmer to them. Unfortunately, comfort and size-wise, they didn't do it for me!

I love these shoes. I have a pair in black and silver! I usually wear a 7½N, but I needed a 7M in these shoes. I was able to wear them because the strap is adjustable.

I had this shoe many years ago and loved them. I felt well worth the money I spent. It has been so long and I really had a hard time spending $200 on another pair but decided to when there was a great sale. However I was very disappointed in the quality. They used to make this shoe in Italy and now it's made in China but the price is the same. The quality however is not up to snuff. My issue is the interior of the wide strap that touches the top of your foot feels like leather but the embossed top piece is brittle and definitely feels like a faux leather. Then where the strap that attaches to the wide strap and runs vertically down the side of the foot in the interior the upper and lower portions of leather/faux leather were already splitting and I hadn't even tried them on. So I put them on and walked about 5 steps in them, the bottom is slick but can be worn. I honestly took them right off and examined them again and decided to return them. Even on sale, I could buy better quality leather sandals still made in Italy that are better quality but they are getting harder to find. It is a shame so many designers are now manufacturing in China or Mexico but charging the same price for far less quality on which their brand was built upon.

I must have ordered (and returned) at least half a dozen other black sandals before stumbling on these. I love them. Stylish, can dress up/down, slip on, and so comfortable. I just ordered a second pair in bronze. Time will tell, but they seem to be well made. I won't wear shoes that look cheap or "orthopedic", which these definitely do not. Two thumbs (toes?) up!

The first time I have ever been disappointed by Donald Pliner shoes, I purchased these for my husband. First time he wore them the top of the insole detached in both shoes, Then after wearing them for a couple of weeks the leather.became very distressed. He has polished them and you can not get back to the original finish.

I just bought these to replace a pair from about 10 years ago. I immediately noticed the leather was not as soft as my old ones were at purchase. I love them so I kept them. After about an hour of wear I had rubbed blisters on both feet on the side where the little strap is! I now have my feet wrapped in gauze and I am trying to stretch the leather as much as possible. I just found out these are no longer made in Italy (as were my old ones) but are now made in China. The price has not gone down, but the quality sure has!!

Love this sandal. I originally bought a 1/2 size down because my other Donald Pliners were a bit sloppy. Had to return the 7.5 and get the 8.0. Comfortable can go from day to evening with no problems. You might pay more for DP's but they are so worth it.

I love these. I got the black reptile patent -- they're a little flashy, very lightweight and comfortable, and the quality seems great so far. I walked about a mile and a half in them the first time I wore them and had no problems.

My husband loves these dress shoes! These are his second pair. He says they are so comfortable that it's like wearing slippers.

Very stylish and comfortable shoe. Put these on and found them to be about one size too large. Hope the next size down fits correctly.
