LOVE at first sight! Perfect neutral color for summer, excellent quality & fit as always from DJP shoes. Ordered on Monday, received on Tuesday, unfortunately the weather isn't cooperating for me to break these babies out of the box just yet but I'm anxious to do so. Will get the black also but don't see them on Zappos. I think these will be my go to sandals for summer! You just can't go wrong with DJP shoes.

Thanks to the last review, I went with a full size smaller and they fit great (still some extra space for my toes but not enough to bother me). I'm not sure if the scuffs on these boots are intentional but, with some polish they were gone. The suede portion needed some attention too but, no big deal. Boots were true to color with what is shown here. With others sites they have them much lighter yet still claim the same color. The insoles that come with the boots, and the boots in general, are really comfortable. It's nice to have a pair of boots that I don't have to skip over due to how long I'd be wearing them. Went with a straight bar lacing for added comfort.

I wear a 12 M normally but this shoe in 12 is just too tight. It's long enough but just a bit narrow. I tried on several 12's and they were consistently tight. I went to a 13 and it's a bit big but my only option. A 12.5 would be about right but they don't offer that. I put an insole in the 13m and it works okay. Nice shoe!

First I should start with the note that I have a narrow foot. I chose this shoe because I saw it had the elastic straps - usually that is a way I can get around needing a narrow. While they were doable - they weren't very tight. For someone with a medium width - they would probably be perfect. The style of the shoe is beautiful - perfect sized heel and easy to walk in. The color is great too - goes with everything. I will say the shoes had a really bad chemical smell when I first got them - I have left them out to air and the smell isn't bad now. Overall I love this shoe! If any designers are listening - come out with more shoes in narrow. I can't be the only person out there with narrow feet and it's slim pickens out there for us!

These shoes were the most beautiful shoes I have ever seen.unfortunately, they were cut too low and were not comfortable. I am devastated !thank you so much for letting me try them!

I love these sandals. I must, because I've been wearing them for more than a decade. But something happened, this year -- either my feet got appreciably wider, or the sandal footbed got narrower. If your foot is on the narrow side, get these; you'll wear them constantly, and have them for years. They are that comfy and that versatile! If your feet are even medium width, perhaps think twice. Interestingly, I also got them in gold, and they fit. Go figure.

The toe ring caused such blisters on left and right foot toes that I will not be able to wear these again. I have many Donald Pliner shoes with toe rings that has never been a problem. I also found this shoe to run a bit small.

The shoes are comfortable and good looking. I only give them 3 stars for one reason: they have this petroleum smell that I often find with cheap shoes. These are not cheap shoes! So far the smell seems to be dissipating, so I'm going to keep them, but I worry that it will be a problem. I think for the money they should be using nicer dyes, glues or whatever it is that makes this smell. And for the record, I'm not a particularly sensitive person to smells. Otherwise, nice shoes.

I purchased these in black and liked them so much I decided to get the expresso color too. I should have believed the reviews I read on that color, but I figured mine would be a good pair. Wrong. The shoes looked terrible, so much so that I dodn't even take both of them out of the box. Streaks, blotches, and a swirl of what looked like gold paint on the side of the one. Considering that Donald Pliner makes a top-notch product, this was surpising and disappointing. Zappos is a fantastic company and the return process was handled very professionally. This might be a product that needs to either have better quality control, or be removed as a choice altogether.

This is a beautiful shoe.. The color is perfect...the shape is perfect. Yes, you will see some toe cleavage, but not any more than a pair of low cut ballet flats.

Awesome! A very comfortable and great looking shoe! Love the heel height, and stretchy straps. A super "wear all day" sandal. The toe strap is not too tight, which I was worried about. I bought it every color!

I love the look of these flats. I am a big Donald Pliner fan. They are always the most comfortable shoes in my closet. With that being said, these are a big disappointment. My feet are rubbed raw every time that I wear them. I keep hoping that they needed a breaking in period. But sadly I need to break up with them.

Beautiful shoe in person. My husband really liked it. But sizing is larger than expected.

Love this shoe! The crepe is very versatile and contrasts nicely with the shiny heel. Very comfortable too and just the right amount of toe cleavage. I'm a little worried about how the crepe will hold up over time (will it snag?) so have been trying to be careful when wearing these heels. Have been wearing them to work but would be good for going out too. So glad I got them!!

Shoe looked good until you saw the cheesy lining on the interior footbed. Whatever happened to a leather lining that goes with the exterior of the shoe? Returning!

Beautiful t-strap sandal. Bought it to dress a pair of black ankle pants. Looks cute! I needed the 11....I wear a 10.5 which is not available. Probably run pretty true to size. Shiny heel and t-strap are a little dressy, while the matte mesh dresses down a little. Nice combo.

This shoe is so cute - especially live & in person. Felt great when I tried on at home, but terribly uncomfortable when I tried to wear for the first time. Donald Pliner shoes are usually very comfortable on my feet, but these seemed narrow and unforgiving. Sadly they must be returned.

This is my third pair of black fifi's. The style of this shoe cannot be beat, and I still love them. Each successive pair, however, has felt like a slight downgrade. My second pair was a downgrade in quality of materials, and this new pair feels like a slight downgrade in style. The footbed of the fifi10 is narrower and both the look and feel seem slightly different, which is why I'm giving only 4 stars for 'overall' and 'comfort' categories. Still though, these shoes go with everything and the style always seems fresh and new. These shoes are winners!

It is not as white as pictured but more beige. Also it is roomy in the toes. I ordered an 8.5 my normal size but it is loose. Wasn't quite as feminine as I would have liked. But it was comfortable. Will need to return.

I really wanted to like these. I wear a 10.5, so I tried both the 10 and the 11. Both were so narrow I could barely get my foot in.

These are my second pair. The best shoes I have ever had. I travel globally a lot and take them with me everywhere I go. They go well with everything. I love them.
