I don't know why they would make the bottom of the shoe so narrow, especially compared with how almost overly-wide the top part of the shoe is. I am pretty sure I will return these.

The shoe box says stone color but they are actually mossy green. They do not look like the picture which is a light color fabric. They are green, not stone color.

Bad shoes! Very heavy (try tying a brick to your own shoe to approximate the weight. These shoes are a fine example of cheap imported crap! Though they are made in Italy, which is known for fine leather goods, one would think they were made in China, if you know what I mean. They are really heavy, the leather is stiff and the fit is skimpy and uncomfortable. To charge $185 for them is a real joke. Don't waste your time.

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.

Fabulous comfortable sandal. Put them for the first time and went to a wedding. Never gave my feet a second thought! A MUST.

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.

These shoes are cute and comfortable with a great heel height. I have no issues with either fit or the zipper. In fact, I am quite pleased that the zipper stays up when zipped.

Interesting textile. It was a little to mushroom in color. Not as creamy as picture.

This is a great, neutral dressy shoe that looks good with both dresses and pants. Heel height is comfortable for walking. I was hesitant about the strap across the toes being too narrow but it's okay and didn't cut into my foot. I gave it only 4 stars for comfort because it could use a little more padding.

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 get tons of compliments when I wear these sandals. They are a beautiful gladiator style with subtle gold metallic undertones. They have a very comfortable foot bed and provide great support, plus they have a little height without being high heels. They run a smidge big. Personally I have very small ankles and had to size down a half size to get a snugger fit on the straps.

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.

It is a very cute shoe and would love to keep it; however, the black "Donald Pliner" label is located inside the shoe where you step and the corner of it digs into the center of the bottom of your foot. Too bad.

Wore this shoe less than five times and the strap ripped out; not the kind of quality I expected, to say the least. Fortunately, Zappos is returning the item and providing great customer service.

I love this shoe. Comfortable and I have several foot issues that make it difficult to find shoes that fit as well as a narrow foot. They are great.

True to DP, the shoes are gorgeous. Unfortunately uncomfortable on the front straps, and the zipper is flawed. Too bad- had to return them.

I had my eye on these for a while and I'm glad that I bought them. I have limited flexibility in my left big toe joint and most shoes with any height and a heel cause extreme pain, but not these. And I don't like wearing flats so a wedge is usually my only option as long as the pitch isn't too steep. This wedge is comfortable and fashionable. I love the mix of the cork and patent leather bottom. I have worn them all day without any issues. So far the fabric bands have not stretched out. I normally wear a size 9 sometimes 9.5 in shoes but I have found with these as with all other Pliner shoes that an 8.5 is the best fit. I recommend ordering at least a 1/2 size smaller than your normal shoe size.

Really cute, unfortunately the zipper in the back is very difficult to zip up or down and it was really loose around the top.
