Loved the look of this shoe. It looks great with dress pants. The shoe is soft and comfortable. The insole is just a little hard. Wish there were more cushion. I added a thin insole to fix the problem.

I was very disappointed in these shoes. While they did not cause me any blisters, the soles are hard and very uncomfortable. I tried putting an insole in to cushion but that made the shoes too small. If I hadn't worn them I would have sent them back. I usually love Pliner products.

Wonderful shoes. They require no breaking in at all, look new for a long time since they don't crease like leather does, and are easy to wear all day. Highly recommended.

I love these shoes! This is my second pair for when my first wear out. I have very difficult-to-fit feet (wide across the toes and narrow heel), and these fit perfectly. I want them in other colors, but they are difficult to find. They are definitely worth the price. Mine have held up well, too. They fit true to size.

This is my 4th pair of this style. I love them. They are so comfortable. I've bought them in the suede and crepe elastic style. I will keep buying as long as they keep making.

Essential all-day comfort (no "break-in" time) and professional appearance for work, especially when traveling. They look great with tailored pants suits, just slip your feet into them and go. I have worn them for years and always have new pairs waiting in boxes.

I love microfiber shoes primarily because of their superior comfort and fit. I'm willing to sacrifice style for a shoe that feels amazing. These are a bit disappointing, in that the footbed has almost no padding so despite the low heel height and supportive upper, they become uncomfortable when standing or walking for long periods. I'm adding a gel insert and keeping them, but wished I didn't have to.

I thought these were going to be the perfect shoe I was looking for. They look great on the foot but they were just way too narrow. Might try a larger size because they looked so good.

I love this shoe. It is pretty, sporty, comfy, dressy and all around wonderful. This is my 3rd pair. Why is this my 3rd pair? Somehow these shoes don't hold up as well you might expect given the price. It might be because I wear them too much. But it's disappointing to have to replace them every 2 years or so.

These shoes fit beautifully but they make a "clumping" noise when I walk. Can't stand that so they are going back. Too bad. Really wanted them to work.

Although I love these shoes, the sole is already pulling apart from the upper part. I am disappointed because the shoes are beautiful!

These shoes are so comfortable! I can walk all day in them, and yet they are stylish. I wear them with slacks when I don't want the bulk of boots, but I want more style than a loafer provides and more substance than a ballet flat.

I love Pliner shoes, especially the elastic crepe low-heel ones: great for everyday and for travel. Years ago they made that heavier fabric shoe that had a thicker, more shock-absorbing sole, which was even better for traveling abroad. This style is the closest I've found. Although I miss a more shock-absorbent, a better gripping sole, and more arch support, it's simple, smart-looking, and comfortable. If you have a high arch, the shoe may feel snug at first: it comes fairly high up on the top of the foot.

Thought I was buying the very same of elastic slip ons that I\'ve loved for a couple years, but these seem a half-size larger. I\'ll try a size down

So disappointed in this shoe; I had this shoe few years ago and it fit perfectly; this one is horrible fit, way too big for my narrow foot, even though I bought the Narrows. Shame on Donald Pliner!

This is the fourth pair of this style that I've purchased. An incredibly versatile style, excellent with most slacks, and extremely comfortable.

Very good looking shoe. I bought my first pair about 15 years ago. It was much more than comfortable, as it fit like a house show and light as a feather because it had crepe soles! Really do wish you would remake the crepe soles on this shoe. I would love to have another pair with the crepe soles, in fact I'd probably buy every color.

Not happy at all. This is the 4th pair of these shoes I've owned. The first 3 pair had a leather sole and were flexible & soft. This pair has a man made sole and is very uncomfortable. Not flexible at all!
