The quality of these boots did not match up with their price. I don't mind paying that much for excellent workmanship, but these were not excellent in any way.

Wanted to love these but did not feel they were not flattering on also the shaft height was too high and for the price I felt I could do much better. Back they go.

Love the look of these shoes but they run very narrow and short. I have worn his shoes for years but I had to return them because they were so narrow and my toe touched the end of the shoe and it was a size 11!

Wow, are these stunning...but painful! The pressure on the front of my shin was too much. Meaning it was pressing so hard into the tibia that I could hardly walk. Surprising, because Pliner products are known for being easy and comfortable right out of the box. Maybe they will stretch out and loosen in that area, but I cannot handle the pain I'd have to endure to find out. Such a shame, because these boots are just about everything I've been looking for.

I love Pliner - these may need a bit of breaking in but really beautiful overall. I will have to exchange them for a 7.5. I have lots of 8's in Pliner (even similarly styled boots) but these were really big (long). I may even have to try the 7.

Sassy! These boots are as cute and comfortable as I'd hoped but read and heed the reviews. Thin socks and a bit of a struggle to get them on and tall gals like myself (5'10") will find they fall short of full knee coverage.

It's a cute shoe but the black plastic border on the top hurt the top of my foot. I was surprised at the material on top -- especially from Pliner.

When I received these boots in the afternoon, I wore them that evening to back to school night. By the end of the evening, I needed a Band Aid on my front right big toe. The seam in the peep-toe rubbed it raw. I could have returned them the next day, but I didn't. I love the style and quality of the boots. Not sure why my left toe didn't get the rub, so my right one just has to toughen up I guess. I'm keeping these!

This is a comfortable, fun loafer . A nice alternative to the plain black leather or elastic. A little bling is always fun, and this bling is black on black. In DP I wear either a 7 or 7.5. I bought these in a 7. I only plan to wear a thin socks or no socks.

Beautiful peep toe bootie. Sadly, will return these because the fit does not work for me. True to size in the length. The upper foot and ankle of this bootie were too wide for me. The buckle is decorative so no way to tighten to give it a more fitted look. I do have slightly narrow feet and ankles. I am not able to accurately rate comfort as I did not have them on for more than 5 minutes. Usual DJP quality and style!

I bought these in Black Leather & Tan Suede about 10 years ago. They are a very old style. Still nice but the price being asked for such an old style is nuts. Nice quality you won't find today though.

Cool concept but not quite right. The upper material is canvas-like and leather-lined but I don't assume it would have a long life if regularly used. The midsole is nicely rigid for walking and the flat outsole is good for a smooth rolling gait. The matte finish of the upper and lack of detail makes these look too much like slippers or socks at quick glance. Low to medium arch support. Tight (low and narrow) toe box.

These boots are perfect...color, quality of leather, and very comfortable - right out of the box! Definitely would recommend.

I think the quality of these shoes is exactly what I have gotten used to for Donald Pliner. They are very good looking with the black microfiber fabric. The heel strap fits well and does not pinch or bind. I will definitely order in both colors!

I love these boots! They are exquisitely comfortable and have a lean, sexy look. I got the black and wear them with black skinny jeans.

Synthetic lining at this price point? You've gotta be kidding me! I would have bought these, but I'm not willing to spend this cost on something I'm allergic to! You should be ashamed!

These are beautiful little wedge booties. They are made from soft suede. They are a comfortable height. They have really hard insoles. I need a little more cushioning for my tootsies.

I have been buying this shoe for years. I wear them all the time. Since DJP is now having the shoes made overseas, the quality has gone way down. The shoe is great, but much better quality and long lasting when made in Italy. The price has not gone down.

I'm so disappointed these DP did not work. I've worn Pliner shoes forever! The 9 was too big, and the 8 1/2 fit my left foot but not the right one. They have great style, but sadly, I must return them.

The photo doesn't do this shoe justice. They just look "money." I bought them and another much less expensive pair of booties to see what I liked more, and although the cheaper ones were great for the money, there's just no comparison. I'm definitely keeping these...well worth the cash, they are just so well made and it shows. I also have a defective foot as a result of bad bunion surgery, so the comfort factor is huge with me. Don't hesitate - buy these! Wish they came in more colors!

Love these boots! A fan of DJP already, the timeliness of this arrival was perfect, as I needed a pair of boots that could be worn for extended periods of time and still be comfortable, without looking like a comfort boot. The foot bed area generous enough for thicker socks (I wear smartwool and thorlo extra cush socks), although they still feel great with regular socks on. The height of the heel is perfect my first wear I traveled through two airports and was at a football stadium all evening and felt no pressure points or soreness! The lug sole is also great for traction on slick or wet surfaces. The style is adorable they have sass and a sturdy appeal to them. The laces give you the ability to adjust them for a perfect fit and the leather quality and hardware are great! You can tuck your skinny jeans inside the top of them and zip them all the way up, or partially, or wear the hemline over (which I think detracts from the ornamentation and overall edginess of the boots. I wear a 6.5 but always go a half size up for pointier toes. I ordered these in a 6.5 and they re spot on for fit. Yes, I would recommend these as a heady, high-value, stylish, high-mileage purchase these are my new favorites and I can see myself wearing these boots out!
