I got these in espresso for Christmas, and I absolutely love them. They honestly look better in person than in the picture- more of a distressed look in real life. I wear a 10 to 10 1/2, and have fairly muscular calves, which sometimes push me into the wide-shaft sizes in other brands. I ordered a 10, and they fit perfectly, and are very comfortable. In fact, I just may sleep in them.

Although these are great looking shoes, I agree with some other reviewers that the toe box runs narrow. I have a wide forefoot and my toes felt squeezed. Sadly, these are going back.

These are beautiful shoes that fit true to size. They matched a black/muted gold cocktail dress perfectly. I wore them to a dinner party with dancing after and they were very comfortable.

I think I must be the only woman giving a so-so review. I ordered the 7.5 and 8. I usually take a 7.5. Neither fit comfortably. I found the boots to be very stiff, inflexible and constricting. Don't bother ordering if you have a high instep or large calves. The zippers were stiff and very hard to pull up and down. I actually had to use 2 hands on one zipper. Just too much effort to get these boots on and just not comfortable to wear. I expected a lot more for the price. The style is nice, for leggings and skinny jeans. They wouldn't work with a skirt. They're going back.

This is a great looking shoe-I get compliments on them almost daily. I would recommend ordering a 1/2 size smaller that your actual shoe size. I wear an 11 in everything and if a wide is available (i.e. Allen Edmonds), I order a wide width as well. They fit like an 11 for me right up to the crown of the shoe that juts out. They were a little tight for me in the in-step (strap) area, so my shoe guy put a 2 day stretch on them and they're now a perfect fit.

I was quite surprised and disappointed in these boots. First, I thought that they ran quite large. I wear an 8M or W, and the 8's I bought were huge. Second, the leather is very stiff, there is no lining or padding inside, and they felt so uncomfortable that I have no interest in re-ordering in a smaller size. If you have the feet for these, though, they are very nice looking.

While I really liked the style of these boots online - I found them much more attractive in person; they truly are gorgeous. The leather is thick and strong, yet soft and pliable. I would imagine that they would require little to no break-in time and would last forever. The sole is comfortable with decent arch support. They also give an amazing shape to the back of the leg. Unfortunately, I am returning them because the calf area was way too large for my thin legs.

Beautiful shoe - unfortunately a bit dressier than I was looking for. Needed an everyday black leather. These were more of a peau de soie - sad to return!

Beautiful boots and very comfortable. I rarely find boots for my size 10.5/11s where the shafts aren't huge. These fit perfectly. Still trying to figure out how style these boots though.

These are beautiful, elegant boots! The suede shaft and overlay is plush and very rich and makes the shoe part of the boot look like it is being worn under a pair of riding chaps - cool design. The fit is right on - I wear a size 10 and they fit perfectly. They are going back, however, because I am looking for a looser, more casual fit and these fit closely to the shape of the leg. These are really lovely boots, though.

These boots are rugged and beautifully crafted. The suede is much thicker than I was expecting. These feel more like brushed leather than suede. I have DJ Pliner vintage suede dress boots that feel more like fabric suede, whereas these are more like rugged saddle leather. The suede is very high quality. I was worried they would be too wide on my calves, as I like sleek and tight fitting boots, but wide in the calf they definitely are not. They are very sleek and form fitting. In fact, I have very skinny calves and these are very snug on me. They are a little difficult to zip up with thin leggings inside, but I expect they will stretch a bit with wear. I am not a fan of how stiff the soles typically feel on most western boots, but these are unique in that they have a rugged sole, but it has some softness and give to it so they are not very loud when you walk and they have more flex in them. These are high quality boots that will not disappoint, but they do fit very snug in a way that I was not expecting. If you have thick calves you may have trouble with the fit. They feel more like a narrow width in the foot and the calf.

These are the most favorite pair of shoes/boots I've had in years. I love this brand. It fits my feet perfectly. Put them on at 7:30AM and take them off at 8:30PM and I'm not dying to get them off. I wish they came in more colors...I would buy them.

These are beautiful comfortable boots. They are worth the money. However, one of the two boots that I received squeaked very loudly. It was a pretty embarrassing sound and unfortunately because of this, these are going back. I want to commend Zappos - I ordered at 3:00 PM on a Thursday and received them by 11:00 AM Friday with no shipping charge!

Love these shoes. They fit perfectly and I don't have any trouble with my somewhat fussy feet despite the wedge height. I don't have any trouble with the zippers staying up once they're 'locked' into place. Highly recommend for a very cute and comfortable bootie.

I bought these boots just before I left for a 10 day trip to Ireland, I wore them every day, all day and they were fantastic. They fit like a glove.

I am 5 feet tall and have problem feet from wearing cheap high heels in my 20's. I put these boots on and am in love. Support my foot, great heel toe transition so that the weigh of my feet are evenly distributed between heels and ball of my feet. I would really recommend these boots. Look very sexy too.

I bought these shoes in both colors but both were a little too snug near the toes and were uncomfortable. I own a lot of Donald Pliner and love the brand but not these shoes.

These heels are SO COMFORTABLE! And I never think heels are comfy. True to size, pretty leather. I ordered the brown after wearing the black ones for a few days. WORTH EVERY PENNY!

The Pacha is very comfortable along with being fashionable. It runs true to size and the heel feels sturdy. It fits like a glove without hurting your feet. This shoe is worth the price.

Super cute and most important: super comfortable straight out of the box. Love them (and the "python" skin ones I also got). Donald Pliner shoes rock!

I love these shoes. They're great. Please bring back the Ewait. I prefer the style compared to the Uwait. I wear the Rex for dress and wear the Uwait for more casual look. The Ewaits could be worn with anything. Please Donald, bring back the Ewait.
