I've had three pairs of Donald Pliner stretch shoes. They are always very comfortable. I tend to wear between a 10 and 10 1/2, here the ten was perfect. As others have noted there is no arch support. I wore with a tux and later with jeans.

Cool concept but not quite right. The upper material is canvas-like and leather-lined but I don't assume it would have a long life if regularly used. The midsole is nicely rigid for walking and the flat outsole is good for a smooth rolling gait. The matte finish of the upper and lack of detail makes these look too much like slippers or socks at quick glance. Low to medium arch support. Tight (low and narrow) toe box.

I bought another pair of the Pliner Erling design that I LOVED. This shoe, however, is uncomfortable to say the least. My first pair of Erling shoes had a kind of matte finish, whereas these are more of a hard, inflexible mesh type fabric. They don't look nearly as good and are much more uncomfortable. TWO CRUCIAL DIFFERENCES: 1.) The earlier pair was made of a stretchier, more flexible fabric. As such, you could more easily slip on the shoe. 2.) The opening of the shoe (where you put your foot in) was bigger on the earlier pair of Erlings that I had. The bigger opening made it easier to get the shoes on and off and made wearing them MUCH more comfortable. I first ordered this in size 8.5, which is the same size as my first pair od Pliner's Erling design. I could barely even get my foot in the shoe--and when it WAS in the shoe, it was uncomfortable. So I ordered a second pair in size 9.5. I still could barely get my foot into the shoe. It was so tight I had to stretch the shoe to get it onto my foot. And it was uncomfortable once it was on. furthermore, I thought that having to stretch the shoe like that would tear it up pretty soon. So after two tries, I have given up on this design. I've owned several pairs of Pliner shoes through the years and have been very pleased with all of them because they looked good, they were durable and they were comfortable. I didn't keep these because they weren't comfortable. $195 is too much to pay for an uncomfortable shoe. I think the designers at Pliner messed up with this particular model. Back to the drawing board, guys. Howzabout bringing back the original Erline design with the matte finish?
