The shaft was too wide for me. I have narrow calves and hoped that the stretchy material would have been more form-fitting. I am sending them back, but sadly, because they seem really comfortable and look even nicer than they do in the pics.

Although stylish and made in Italy, this shoe is of a very low quality. The leather is of a lower quality and the soles are shockingly cheap in their construction. Save your money.

The boots are great looking, except they wrinkle at the ankle (which I dislike), could have lived with that but then realized they buckle right at the back of the calf. It did not look nice. My husband even commented that it looked bad. Too bad as the are so pretty from the front. The fit is snug at the instep, at least for me.

I found these boots to be very comfortable. The elastic sides are really nice for flexibility. Especially like the heel.

A great pair of boots for the price. They look stylish, but you can walk safely in them. They will give a bit in the calf to fit more athletic size calves. Once you break them in for the first time, no problem zipping them. They are warm in cold winter with a pair of black tights. I would buy them again.

Great fit, and fun look with some patent leather accents down the back of the calf and thin ones down the seams of the boot. Comfortable.

Great shoe! The patent heel really makes the boot pop and the wedge makes they comfortable and feel Supportive.

Love these shoes but a little big and slips on heel. Will try an 8.5 - I’m usually a 9 so that’s what I ordered. They are so funky and would probably be really weird to some people but I love them so much. Comfy fabric.

I was looking forward to these so much, but they’re smaller and narrower than what I need. I wish they had worked!

I'm a huge fan of this type of boot. This is my first Pliner pair as I've mostly worn La Canadienne. I like everything about these boots, especially the platform. I have a slightly wide toe box and a right foot bunion from years of running, and these boots are comfortable and accommodating. My only wish is that they were a bit shorter as I am only 5' tall and I end up folding down the tops a bit so they're not over my kneecap.

I was really unpleasantly surprised at this shoe! I think Donald J Pliner could have done better. Not at all comfortable. Leather not at all soft. Way too small. I’m going back to Coach and Cole Haan! Zappos carries both!!

I usually love Donald Pliner shoes. This is a beautiful shoe, but upper material is too stiff to be comfortable. No movement! I'm returning.
