My husband has these shoes in espresso, black, and dark brown suede. The smooth leathers, especially, are great for traveling because they are so versatile. He wears the black ones with everything from jeans to his tux. Four stars for comfort because he wishes they were a bit wider, but he is accustomed to boxy styles.

Wow! These shoes were better looking in person. I was worried that it would look a little too busy. But it doesn't at all. Looks great. It's a little tight in the toe. But I assume it will loosen over time.

This is an addorable sandal. I am torn as to whether to return it or not. It is for my daughter's wedding; I am M.O.B. The platform is not more than an inch. There is not a lot of cushioning. The upper strap is going to take some getting used to. I have a long nay sequined gown. The seqwuins are silver so this would work- and even the style would work though a bit on casual side for evening wedding. The lizard lining and patten piece add dressiness. So I think it would work. I wish it was at least two inches high then I wouldn't hesitate, even thoug it could be more comfortable for a most important evenening.

I like these! So does everyone who sees me wearing these shoes. I had to go half a size smaller as the first pair of 9's were just a bit too roomy. 8½'s work well. They provide good support. I love showing off these shoes.

The quality of Donald Pliner shoes have really changed dramatically for this collection. This happened about 5 years ago where really stating to move their shoes to China. I have worn Donald Pliner for many years, but will not pay for this poor quality. This is the worst season I have seen. I bought a number of shoes that I had to return. Normally I find so many that I cannot choose. I am disappointed that they are losing regard for their brand.

I love these shoes! I usually wear only "sensible" shoes, but I was so taken by the styling that I decided to order. When I put them on, I discovered they were extremely comfortable, much to my surprise! WhenI have worn them out, I have been able to stand on my feet for the entire evening! People notice these shoes! I don't usually wear shoes with thongs between the toes (as mentioned by another reviewer); however, I found these to be extremely comfortable!

Very cute sandal, but no way to adjust either of the straps. While the strap near the toes was all right, the strap across instep was way too roomy and did not hold my foot in at all. I'm a 7 1/2 M in most shoes, including Pliner's, but the straps on this behaved like I was trying to wear a sandal that was 3-4 sizes too large. In attempting to just walk across the room to test out the sandals, I walked out of both right and left. The product description notes "side gore panel for a customized fit." But there is nothing customized about this sandal. With all of the similarly-styled sandals being shown this season, I can't imagine why there is no adjustability built in to these. Velcro or additional holes in the (currently faux) buckle would be all that was necessary. They're going back.

I had to return this sandal. When I opened the box I was overwhelmed with a horrible smell. The smell of something made in China. That terrible chemical smell. I told my husband - there is no way this sandal was made in China. It is a Donald Pliner. He flipped over the sandal and it said, "Made in China". I almost fainted. I couldn't believe it. The giant who makes all his shoes in the mountains of Italy - has gone to China. Say it ain't so. I won't be buying Donald Pliner anymore. How terribly sad and disappointing.

The shoe is comfortable with great arch support. The print is a subtle snake print with a water-color like blue floral over it. It is a great casual shoe for pants or skirts.

The shoe is too wide for my foot, in the past ordered a narrow which was not offered. Also, quality not as good. Not an "Italian made" shoe, as before. Still a great looking shoe.

As the previous reviewer stated, they do slip a bit in the heel, but I'm going to deal with it. Great shoe for work. My job allows sandals in the summer, but a peep toe is about all I can handle. To see a co-worker's full on nasty foot kind of grosses me out. Kind of unprofessional too.

The shoes are well constructed, and very comfortable. However, they aren't black. They look like it in the pictures, but the second you open the box and you get them under a light, they turn purple. I don't mean a little, this is serous PURPLE. If you're buying wingtips with red accents, you might be okay with that, but I'm not stylish enough to pull off rocking purple wingtips.

This is a very pretty, comfortable wedge sandal. I have to walk carefully because the heel is very narrow and can easily twist your ankle. Have to walk like a lady.

I love this shoe! I own 5 pair in different colors. I have bad knees and heels for me are a thing of the past! I can wear these all day and my feet and legs never hurt. I think it is because they give you some height but also stable even support. They run true to size. Please keep them coming in new patterns and colors!

These have quickly become my go-to shoe. Super comfy and get seem to work with everything I wear. They are extremely flattering on the foot and, though pricey, I think well worth the money for the wear I'm getting from them.

Gorgeous shoe. Beautifully made. A little too high for hours of standing but worth the sacrifice for shorter periods of time.

As soon as you open the box it becomes apparent these shoes were manufactured in China! They smell incredibly toxic. The quality is not what you would expect from a designer name or designer price.

This is a gorgeous shoe. Different and very well made. I have a wide foot but can usually wear a normal width in sandals. This shoe is very narrow in the front. I could barely try it on, there no way I could have walked in it. I'm giving it 5 stars though because it is stunning; I wish it fit.

Awesome sandals! Just what I was looking for. This is my fourth pair of Donald J. Pliner sandals in the last 6 years and I love them all and they look just as good as the day I bought them.Took them out of the box and wore them all day with absolutely no problems. Thanks Zappos.
