Unfortunately these were not as comfortable as I'd hoped. Stiff and not as much support as needed. I was hoping to find a comfy alternative to high heels, but I'll need to keep looking.

nice looking shoe. the sole is stiff as a board and will not bend. When walking the heel will not stay on because of that. Pliners no longer made in Italy and that is quite evident!!

I wanted to love this shoe. I've been looking for exactly this style of shoe but they all seem to be too narrow and I have narrow feet! So frustrating. This one was tight across the ball of my foot and may have been a half size too small as the heel rubbed painfully. But the heel also slipped. I bought my usual size 7 but may try a 7.5. Not sure if that will help with the overall narrowness.

Nice shoe but one big issue - the strap across the toe is really narrow and sits too far down towards your toes. Is it just me or is this becoming more common? Whatever, I don't like it. Too bad, they're going back.

I bought the Donald J Pliner Jace in the neutral color about a month ago. I absolutely love them. They look great and they are comfortable. I do not usually wear heels. I normally wear more of a minimalist, wide toe box , let the toes splay type shoe. A girl also needs comfortable and stylish shoes too. The leather of this shoe allow room for the toes without smashing them together. The wedge allows height and stability. The look is beautiful on your feet. Sexy. I normally wear a 9.5 in Merrill Pace Glove and NB Minimus. My feet are on the wider side of normal. I purchased the JACE in size 9 and they fit great. Great purchase!

The shoes are very comfortable and are true to the size! The shoes are very well made and soft. Very happy with the purchase.

I don't order wides but I would have had to for this one to work. Too long and too narrow. Have to return. Beautiful shoe but sizes are "special".

I so wanted to love these shoes, lower heel, well-made, nice detailing. They are so pointed that my feet look like a couple sizes bigger than they are and I'm concerned they would be squeezing my instep. Maybe they would stretch a tad and be perfect, they're too expensive to take a chance and I don't know they're all that flattering in a 9.

Very nice sandal, seems to run a little narrow.

Very comfy shoe. I had no problems with the fit, usually a 8.5 or 9 and the nine fit great.

These are adorable and I SO wanted them to fit. The 7.5 had my heel just past the back edge of the shoe ever so slightly,but the front fit perfectly. So I exchanged them for an 8 because they were so comfortable and stylish, but had to return those too because the heel fit the exact same, but the front had several additional inches in front of my toe that I didn't need. The shoe is made oddly. The larger sizes only add inches to the toe wnd, but don't account for moving or widening the main shoe cross over strap. Again, weird that the 7.5 except they were too short in back, while 8 didn't fit for foot to go thru all the way. Too bad!

I own several pairs of shoes by this designer and they are great. The RIEL however is on the lower end of the quality spectrum. They have a nice look to them but they are flimsy. The bit is plastic or corrugated cardboard painted brown. Very, very cheap, poor quality. Not what I expect from this designer. Sending them back!!!

I really wanted these shoes to fit! The 7 1/2 and the 8 fit the exact same. You can't get the middle of your foot further. So with the Size 8, you just have extra shoe at the toe and your heal still just barely sits (slightly hanging) over the back edge. Too bad. They are so cute and soft and comfortable, if they'd only fit. I tried two sizes. I'm just returning these now. Obviously the bigger I go, the more the front will jut out and I'll still not be able to fit my foot through to sit my heal properly. :(

Very comfortable sandal - Love them! I'm baffled by the people who say Donald Pliner runs small. I measure as a 6. I wear a 7 sneaker but wear a 5.5 Donald Pliner! I'm keeping the 5.5 and returning the 6.

Great shoe however I ordered a 11.5 men's and it still felt a little big. Normally I'm a size 12 medium width. If the fit was better I would have kept it. I will say though, due to the design of the sole, it felt a lot sturdier than your regular driving moc. Look at the sole in the photos (side profile and bottom view), you'll see that it's one continuous solid sole, rather than several separate sections of sole.

Nuts. I've been eyeing these sandals for years and finally decided to order them. This particular pair ran very small on my size 9 foot. Could hardly fit my foot into the right one and the left one was very tight. Also, did not feel like the soft leather I expected. They are going back pronto. Grateful that Zappos makes it so easy to try things out.

I really wanted to love this shoe but it was way too tight for me in the toe box area. I tend to have a wide-ish foot there now though so this might not be a problem for you. Very nice looking shoe, comfortable in every other respect without looking too much like a "comfort" type shoe.

Love these for a low heel. My usual size is 8.5 but Pliner I prefer the 9, so I believe they run a tad short. These are a beautiful shoe, comfortable fit. If your foot is very narrow this MAY not be the one for you or do choose to get your regular size (not a half size up) to get a snugger fit.

Great shoe! Fit is perfect, and they are very stylish. Great for work or going out at night. They feel great right out of the box. I highly recommend these. I love Donald Pliner shoes but not all are created equal. I think these are going to be one of my favorites. Thank you Zappos for another great shoe shopping experience!

I am completely in love with these shoes. They are pricier than I usually spend, so I waited a week before buying them, but I couldn't stop thinking about them. I'm wearing them for the first time today. They are GORGEOUS! And incredibly comfortable. I could not possibly be happier with them.
