THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL SANDAL, HOWEVER THE MOULDED FOOT BED IS PAINFUL. IT IS FIRM AND MOST FEET DON'T SIT IN THE CRADELED FORMED FOOTBED., WISH IT WAS JUST FLAT and padded. OTHERWISE A LOVELY SANDAL. I WOULD BUY ALL THE COLOR OPTIONS IF THE FOOTBED WAS FLAT AND NOT FORMED.

Cheapened version of a really fine similar shoe Donald Pliner used to sell and that I'm trying to replace. This one has a bumpiness underfoot inside the shoe, and a sole made of some sort of unforgiving plastic. It does not have the give, bounce, and comfort that Pliner once offered. Disappointed.

I love these shoes. They're comfy and cute. I think they are a little larger than usual size, but not enough to go down 1/2 a size.

Beautiful slides, but a bit narrow. I'm not sure I'll be able to keep them due to where the edge hits my arch. But undecided because they are so lovely.

Be specific about your likes and dislikes. How was the fit and size? What does the material feel like? How awesome (or not) do you feel wearing them?

Wish these were still made in Italy or Spain. Now made in China. Actually they have been made in China for years now. Not like back in 2003. Anyway, I still love the look of this sandal and the feel albeit similar could be better.

I ordered a pair. They were huge??I ordered another pair. Same sizes. The second pair fit??I’ve had an issue with Donald J Pliner shoes every since they stopped making them in Spain and started making them in China. You never know what your going to get??They are EXTREMELY inconsistent. BEWARE??????

Really cute shoes; love everything about them and will wear for short periods of time as they are a little on the wide side. I'm normally 8.5 M.

I am so disappointed in the Donald Pliner sandles I’ve purchased this spring. There appears to be a real quality control problem. This particular shoe fit like 2 different widths, with one being tight and the other being loose. When I examined the workmanship, it was clear that the uppers were different. I haven’t purchased Donald Pliner shoes in a while, but if this is the quality I can expect, I won’t be buying any more soon. Such a comedown from excellent workmanship to shoes that just don’t make the grade. I’m returning them.

Didn't work for me. Made in china & too wide. When Donald Pliners were made in the mountains of Italy, they were perfect.?

These, like many Donald Pilner shoes, were too stiff for me. I suppose some like stiff leather, but obviously I don't. In the past I've kept Donald Pilner shoes thinking the leather would soften, but that has not happened.

Fit true to size. I am a 10 or 10 1/2 and the 10 fit fine. They were not comfortable though. They hurt where you put your toe through and the footbed itself was very hard. I ended up returning them b/c not sure I could wear them for a full day without my feet killing me. I will say I am used to vionic brands and definitely buy shoes for comfort (and try and get ones that look good too). I did think they looked nice, although my sister told me she thought I paid $25 for them!

Fit is true to size and the cork footbed is so comfortable. I love the black and white design very retro. I have many Fifi style shoes in different colors and these will be a great addition.

This shoe is so much better in person. So sassy and what a statement these will make I can't wait to wear them. The heel is a perfect height and a block heel is so in style this season. The colors pop and the beading is spectacular.
