These boots are beautiful...but the "stretch" back isn't truly stretchy. I was unable to get the zipper up around my moderately larger calves...if you have big calves, these are not for you.

These shoes were exactly what I was looking for. The fit, quality and comfort is excellent as always with Donald Pliner. An elegant stylish shoe that works well with jeans or more dressed up.

I have narrow to medium width feet. These feel good to me, that probably may mean they run true to slightly narrow. If you have wide feet, these won't be for you. The length is exactly true. The construction/quality is first rate. Stitching is straight and perfectly regular with no loose ends anywhere to be found. The lining is smooth and everything is well finished inside; you could wear these without socks and no knots or other protrusions would rub. The styling is fun and the colors add a splash of character. These will go great with jeans. So, why only 4 stars on overall? These are great but the would be perfect if they were lower priced. Having said that, I still wouldn't return them. I would suggest that you get a pair and give them a try.

I love these boots - so comfortable. First time I wore them had no problems leather is very soft and the color is a nice change from black. A great addition to my shoe collection.

Cutest boots ever. I normally wear a wide shoe and was disappointed that this boot didn't come in a wide width, but as with many better brands, you get what you pay for. The medium width is sufficient and because it's a real leather boot, I know I will get a little stretching out with time. So comfortable despite a tiny bit lacking in width. I could wear them all day right out of the box. I am in love with these boots! Well worth the price.

I never write reviews but this is the BEST work shoe I have ever purchased. I am a nurse practitioner who works in an office setting and I am on my feet throughout the day. I am slightly over 5'4, so there is no way I would dream of going to the office in flats. (I was born in heels!) It's always a challenge to find a work shoe that offers height yet provides comfort. If you are looking for a stylish, comfortable work shoe that provides comfort and stability, yet offers height,then this shoe is for you. I am usually between a 8.5 and 9. I stuck with the 9's.

Loved the shoe but top strap broke where metal ring brings the 2 straps together after 2.5 hours of wear. Will return and try again and hope it was just a weak link on this shoe and not on all of them.

OK... But the heel has a nice wood finish that doesn't look right with the casual look of the canvas upper.

My husband has an older version of this shoe in black and loves it. The opening on this pair is so small he could not get his foot in the shoe. They will go back.

Always appreciated the long-lasting quality of this brand. The black patent leather not only looked immaculate, it was comfortably soft to walk in right out of the box. Barely a tiny bit of "toe cleavage" shows, as one reviewer noted, but unseen with dark hosiery. In a sea of Made in China "designer" shoes' degradation, this shoe stands out in quality and style. It is literally an instant upgrade to any ensemble.

Will be good for narrow foot only. There is space only for 4 toes, my pinky is hanging. I like how they look though.

It's hard to find a sandal that holds onto my narrow foot. These do! And they're beautiful. If they had more arch support, I'd give them five stars for comfort. The four straps that wrap across the top of the foot look like rope, but they are actually elastic. Perfect for an evening that requires any walking, when Dansko's would be too casual.

I am reviewing this shoe because my foot is so hard to fit, and this one fits, so here it goes. Looking for a stylish, sassy shoe that has a heel height lower than 4-6 inches is very difficult these days. This one fits the bill. It has a study heel (no "kitten heel" = unstable) and the elongating T-strap, very nice -- so I will keep it. However, in wearing in my condo for the past hour, the black has rubbed off on my foot. Why is that? Anyway, I will keep it because it looks very nice on my foot. Not the most comfortable, but hey -- I'm nearly impossible to fit. Very high arch, wide ball of foot -- and this one will be comfortable for an evening out. It's pricey for what you get, but it is stylish and sexy!! Seems study too. Give it a try!

I have serious issues with toe comfort and have had surgery to correct my right small toe three years ago. Since then, I have been very careful about the fit of shoes that I purchase. With these, I have hit gold. I just purchased the nude patent and black crepe in my usual size. They fit comfortably and are very sleek and classic. I am thrilled, as I am a shoe lover, yet require comfort along with style. Also, having ruined many shoes by scraping the leather off the heels in the past, I love the non-leather wrapped heels. I think more Pliner Brave shoes are in my future...

These shoes are the most comfortable shoes I own. I even have another pair in gold. I wore them every day, all day long in NYC. They go with everything. Dressy and casual. I love Donald Pliner. If you are on the fence about buying them, take my advice and do it.

Donald Pliner Western is one of my favorite types of booties. The photo does not do these shoes justice. They are beautiful with wonderful detail. Although the color is olive, it has a grey tone to it. I slipped them on and they fit perfectly. I know they will be my go-to shoes this fall!

Liv is an extremely comfortable sandal with super soft cushioning support. This shoe ran significantly smaller than marked...generally, I am a 7.5M in most Donald J. Pliner, but needed an 8M in this one particular style. I bought it in gold leather and wear it both around the house and as a pool shoe. Hope review is helpful when selecting correct sizing...just remember to size up!

These are beautiful, well made sandals however the top strap is positioned very high on the foot and is too close to the ankle which causes an uncomfortable amount of pressure on the top of the foot when walking. Very disappointed that I have to return the sandals.

The most comfortable shoes I own. I get more compliments on these shoes than any others (and I have more shoes than I need). I highly recommend these.
