Nice soft leather and good construction, however, the raised toe area in the foot bed of this shoe is not comfortable for me,also the shoe makes the flip flop noise when you walk, the arch support is good. I purchased this shoe thinking it would fit like the SiFi platform that D.Pliner had several years ago, they did not have the footbed like the Fifi. It is a good looking shoe but definitely does not work for me. I wished I had returned the shoes.

I've been wearing this Pliner style shoe for 5+ years. The shoe is no longer made in Italy where the construction and quality was top notch. I found this shoe to look cheaper, feel cheaper and make an unpleasant sound when walking. Thankfully my old Italian pair is still in good condition. I would not recommend this shoe.

I love these sandals. They fit better than Donald Pliner's Fifi sandals, but I love those, too. I wish there were more colors available; I would buy more of them. I have purchased several pairs of the Fifis; they last for years and are very comfortable. Worth the money!

Brands I'd also recommend: Fifi and the Fifi 10.

Had these shipped overnight to use on a trip to New York in July - per the other review here...and they are spot on! Fit is amazing and can't beat the quality! I did get 2 blisters because of the humidity, but that is to be expected with any new shoe. Will have these for life.

Originally found these shoes a number of years ago at Nordstrom. Beaded bronze. I loved them to pieces! Then the thong/toe piece broke and none of my shoe repair shops would fix them. Called Zappos for suggestions-talk about superlative customer service. I now have 6 pairs!

I was encouraged to buy these shoes because of a prior review from a woman with narrow feet who said they worked for her. They were much too wide for my AA foot, unfortunately. I guess they really are for a medium to wide foot. They are very cute sandals.

Love this shoe. I was able to wear them right out of the box. While it is a little slippery on the bottom initially this is easily fixable by scuffing it up on a rough surface. It did feel a little hard and stiff at first but I never found them uncomfortable. Was able to walk around in them for a couple of hours the first time I wore them. I have very narrow feet and was pleased to find these worked for me.

What can I say other than--these are the best sandals EVER. They are comfortable (walk-around- New-York-City-all-day-in-July comfortable) and very, very flattering. Just buy them--really. Don't hesitate. They look good with everything from dresses to yoga pants.

Love these shoes! Dress them up or dress them down! Took off one star because they are just a tad narrow--not a problem for me, but might be for others.

I love these sandals. I must, because I've been wearing them for more than a decade. But something happened, this year -- either my feet got appreciably wider, or the sandal footbed got narrower. If your foot is on the narrow side, get these; you'll wear them constantly, and have them for years. They are that comfy and that versatile! If your feet are even medium width, perhaps think twice. Interestingly, I also got them in gold, and they fit. Go figure.

This is my third pair of black fifi's. The style of this shoe cannot be beat, and I still love them. Each successive pair, however, has felt like a slight downgrade. My second pair was a downgrade in quality of materials, and this new pair feels like a slight downgrade in style. The footbed of the fifi10 is narrower and both the look and feel seem slightly different, which is why I'm giving only 4 stars for 'overall' and 'comfort' categories. Still though, these shoes go with everything and the style always seems fresh and new. These shoes are winners!

Nice style but the inner part gave me horrible blister. It would have been better if the wide shoe band when all across the top. Additionally, a little padding in the inner sole would have made this a great shoe.

I really thought these would be comfortable shoes. I think this brand is known for comfort. But the bottoms are so hard that after a day in them, it feels almost like you have been standing on a hard floor. They are pretty and I will wear them but for walking a lot or standing, I will look to other shoes.

Great style but awkward fit. The molded footbed is uncomfortable unless it fits your foot shape and size. On my feet they ran short and narrow. Disappointed.

I really loved the design of this shoe, but unfortunately the footbed is (strangely) narrow. I wear a 9.5 in regular width, and the length was perfect, but too narrow. I am sad because I have been eyeing these shoes for a long time, but they are too expensive not to fit correctly so they are being returned. Also, the footbed material sticks to your feet and makes a "sucking" sound, every time you take a step -- I think it would be better if that material was leather or suede.

Very cute sandal, however, extremely hard and uncomfortable. I can't imagine spending this much for sandals that feel like I'm walking on wood planks. :(

This appeared to be a great sandal to accommodate dressy or casual, but within 3 weeks of wearing them the black started to flake off on the heel and toe area. Then to top it off, 3 months later the whole top gave way and for the price this was not at all acceptable! Zappos was great to respond. Before I buy anywhere else, I always check Zappos and will continue to go with them first!

extremely dissatisfied - I have had a pair of "original" Fifi's that I purchased from another site - I should have known these weren't right when I saw the box - my original box stated "made in the mountains of Italy" - this box? Says they are made elsewhere - and aren't they just! way too narrow on the foot bed, and I have a standard sized foot - not wide or fat - so disappointed as I was replacing the last pair that I wore to shreds literally - sending back asap and so not worth the money.
