It looks nicer when you see it. Love the color and it is very comfortable. I get so many positive comments when I have it on with family and friends.

I was so thrilled to find these on Zappos, and get them on sale. However, I'm returning them. They look amazing and the sizing is right, but the design is flawed. As you can see from the pic, this is a double-decker shoe, but the strap is connected to the bottom layer, and the bottom of the shoe does not flex. So, when you walk, the straps just pull against your foot. Painful, just impossible to walk in. A great idea in theory for a shoe, but horrible execution. Pliners are usually much more sensible.

What has happened to Donald Pliner shoes? I've been wearing them for decades and suddenly they are cheaply made (plastic) and terribly uncomfortable. I noticed they're no longer made in Italy, but instead in China. Wherever they're made, the Pliner folks need to go back to their high quality materials and manufacturing!

This is my second pair of Donald Pliner slip-ons, and I'm very happy with both pairs, for the style, versatility and comfort. They've been great for a night on the town including dancing, and equally good for rounding in the hospital where I work as a physician. they also work with a pair of nice jeans. the leather is supple and the outsole provides a surprising amount of cushioning for a dress shoe. I'm giving 4 stars for comfort because the back of the shoe which is a bit narrow and stiff, caused a painful rash until it was broken in, which took a few days.

These are great little sandal heels. They fit true to size. The buckle hits me in a particularly bony spot on my ankle, which is unfortunate. I'm keeping them anyway.

These shoes aren't made symmetrical, one is tighter than the other and I could have kept them had it not been for that. I could not get my toe in one but the other fit fine! I love the style though.

Love these. Fit like a glove. I wear a 7 1/2 and that is what I ordered and its fits perfect. May not be good for a wide foot though. I have a narrow foot with a high arch.

Beautiful shoe, but it was too large so I am returning it. I do have a narrow foot, but I felt that overall the shoe ran just a little large.

I have a really hard time finding dressy shoes that also are comfortable and stylish. I have an old ankle injury that developed arthritis and surgery that resulted in me not being able to wear high heels -- 2.5" max. I am very happy with these shoes considering they are sexy and stylish and comfortable. Not as much as my Noat's but they all have bigger heels -- nothing you can wear with a cocktail dress. Comfortable enough to wear out for the evening but I wouldn't trot around NYC in them.

Loved the shoes, super comfortable, but poor quality. Had to have them resoled after just wearing them twice, and then after a few more wears the shoes actually broke in half, both of them!

Really love this shoe? Very versatile. This shoe can be casual or dressy! Though it is listed as gold the color is a pale gold/silver metallic look. Can be worn with grey/blues or brown/pastels. Even the toe thong in center of strap feels comfortable. Great height heel too!

Despite one small issue, I love these shoes! The issue is the soles. They are very hard and unyielding to any imperfection in the floor or ground. Therefore, at times I feel a bit unsteady on brick or cracked pavement or highly polished tile floors. As I wear them, the soles scuff up and become less vulnerable to the polished floors, but unless there were some rubber or other material added to the soles, I'm guessing there will always be this issue on uneven ground. Be that as it may, these shoes are very comfortable to wear. Though the fabric isn't exactly stretchy, it is smooth and flexible. And I love the back zipper for the style and the ease of getting the shoe on and off my foot. I've worn the shoes with skirts/dresses, skinny jeans, and leggings. All worked well. Really pleased with this purchase!

The shoes are made amazing! They are slightly bigger, maybe a half a size larger, but very comfortable. The look even better in person and on than in the photo. I highly recommend!!

I highly recommend these shoes! They fit perfectly, were comfortable right out of the box, and are adorable. They are very also versatile -- I can wear them to work or with jeans. A great purchase.

There are things I love and don't like about this shoe. It's pretty - both with a dress and with pants. They are difficult to put on because you need to sip you foot through the part that comes around your ankle and then pull up the back, so don't wear them to the airport. What I really can't stand is the sound they make every single step you take - they get stick to your foot. I try to wipe a napkin in-between my foot and shoe, and it helps for like 1 minute. I never have sweaty feet, it's just summer heat/moisture. These shoes are made in a certain country, and the material is of a lower quality than Pliner's normal shoes.

Very comfortable sandal. Wears well and looks great. Its the type of sandal that can dress up or be worn casually. The heel strap provides great support. Lots of compliments.

These are gorgeous and I so want to keep them. However, the fabric on top is just loose enough to make them flop on my feet.

Bought these for a recent trip to Europe. Very comfortable and stylish. The back strap did rub my heel but only after a LONG day of walking! I would recommend these sandals~

I ended up returning the shoe. It was comfortable considering it is a shoe with a dagger for a heel. The heel has a nice wood finish that in my opinion wasn't congruent with the canvas/linen fabric of the upper part of the shoe.

Great pair shoes - stunners. Excellent craftsmanship and rock-star style. Not for guy's who wear beige suits. They are a bold statement - luxurious fashion.

I'm delighted that Donald Pliner is including lower heels in his collection. I put these on right out of the box and wore them for 6 hours. I will say the black, interior suede on the inner heel left a deposit of black on my heel but by the 3rd wearing that issue was non-existent. Love these!
