Love these. Fit like a glove. I wear a 7 1/2 and that is what I ordered and its fits perfect. May not be good for a wide foot though. I have a narrow foot with a high arch.

Beautiful shoe, but it was too large so I am returning it. I do have a narrow foot, but I felt that overall the shoe ran just a little large.

I have a really hard time finding dressy shoes that also are comfortable and stylish. I have an old ankle injury that developed arthritis and surgery that resulted in me not being able to wear high heels -- 2.5" max. I am very happy with these shoes considering they are sexy and stylish and comfortable. Not as much as my Noat's but they all have bigger heels -- nothing you can wear with a cocktail dress. Comfortable enough to wear out for the evening but I wouldn't trot around NYC in them.

Loved the shoes, super comfortable, but poor quality. Had to have them resoled after just wearing them twice, and then after a few more wears the shoes actually broke in half, both of them!

Really love this shoe? Very versatile. This shoe can be casual or dressy! Though it is listed as gold the color is a pale gold/silver metallic look. Can be worn with grey/blues or brown/pastels. Even the toe thong in center of strap feels comfortable. Great height heel too!

Despite one small issue, I love these shoes! The issue is the soles. They are very hard and unyielding to any imperfection in the floor or ground. Therefore, at times I feel a bit unsteady on brick or cracked pavement or highly polished tile floors. As I wear them, the soles scuff up and become less vulnerable to the polished floors, but unless there were some rubber or other material added to the soles, I'm guessing there will always be this issue on uneven ground. Be that as it may, these shoes are very comfortable to wear. Though the fabric isn't exactly stretchy, it is smooth and flexible. And I love the back zipper for the style and the ease of getting the shoe on and off my foot. I've worn the shoes with skirts/dresses, skinny jeans, and leggings. All worked well. Really pleased with this purchase!

The shoes are made amazing! They are slightly bigger, maybe a half a size larger, but very comfortable. The look even better in person and on than in the photo. I highly recommend!!

I highly recommend these shoes! They fit perfectly, were comfortable right out of the box, and are adorable. They are very also versatile -- I can wear them to work or with jeans. A great purchase.

There are things I love and don't like about this shoe. It's pretty - both with a dress and with pants. They are difficult to put on because you need to sip you foot through the part that comes around your ankle and then pull up the back, so don't wear them to the airport. What I really can't stand is the sound they make every single step you take - they get stick to your foot. I try to wipe a napkin in-between my foot and shoe, and it helps for like 1 minute. I never have sweaty feet, it's just summer heat/moisture. These shoes are made in a certain country, and the material is of a lower quality than Pliner's normal shoes.

Very comfortable sandal. Wears well and looks great. Its the type of sandal that can dress up or be worn casually. The heel strap provides great support. Lots of compliments.

These are gorgeous and I so want to keep them. However, the fabric on top is just loose enough to make them flop on my feet.

Bought these for a recent trip to Europe. Very comfortable and stylish. The back strap did rub my heel but only after a LONG day of walking! I would recommend these sandals~

I ended up returning the shoe. It was comfortable considering it is a shoe with a dagger for a heel. The heel has a nice wood finish that in my opinion wasn't congruent with the canvas/linen fabric of the upper part of the shoe.

Great pair shoes - stunners. Excellent craftsmanship and rock-star style. Not for guy's who wear beige suits. They are a bold statement - luxurious fashion.

I'm delighted that Donald Pliner is including lower heels in his collection. I put these on right out of the box and wore them for 6 hours. I will say the black, interior suede on the inner heel left a deposit of black on my heel but by the 3rd wearing that issue was non-existent. Love these!

I always love Donald Pliner for the quality, comfort and style - this sandal delivers on all accounts. Even more fabulous in person - compliments from anyone who has seen them. Great with any summer outfit.

These are the shoes that I have been looking for all my life. I am going to buy them in every color. They are perfect for skinny jeans and dresses. I love them!

I love these shoes. They're high gloss black patent leather, the pics don't really show that. I've already worn them three times for extended hours and felt NO pain. Soft synthetic straps = comfort. 9M is my normal size, ordered a 9M and it's on the narrow side but larger wouldn't work. The zippers on the back add a nice touch. I had to walk across an asphalt street and later noticed scuff marks on the sole at the front lip of the platform. (Black permanent marker will by required) The only real con is they make clickety clackety noise while walking on hard floors that I dislike. These shoes really do look great with jeans, black dressy pants and dresses. Thanks Zappos for the super speedy delivery.

This is the shoe I had been looking for! I wanted something neutral but fun. It is a comfortable shoe.

I ordered the Raku 2 in both the red and black. The red pair was much looser than the black pair for some reason. Previously, I ordered the original Raku, and I prefer the original. The straps are half the width of the Raku 2 and the footbed does not cause your foot to slide forward. I am hoping the leather will soften up a lot more, as it is rather stiff. The width felt more like a wide than a medium. Though this shoe has a kitten heel, I did not find it comfortable for shopping or even walking around the house. I got a blister the first time I wore them out, and I only had them on for a couple of hours. I hope the original Raku will be available again in the near future!!

Love this shoe! Height with comfort...a rarity! The silver "dots" & "holes" add just enough zip to complete an outfit. Well made shoe!
