I own several pairs of shoes by this designer and they are great. The RIEL however is on the lower end of the quality spectrum. They have a nice look to them but they are flimsy. The bit is plastic or corrugated cardboard painted brown. Very, very cheap, poor quality. Not what I expect from this designer. Sending them back!!!

The cork did not wear well at all. It is a thin veneer.

I really wanted these shoes to fit! The 7 1/2 and the 8 fit the exact same. You can't get the middle of your foot further. So with the Size 8, you just have extra shoe at the toe and your heal still just barely sits (slightly hanging) over the back edge. Too bad. They are so cute and soft and comfortable, if they'd only fit. I tried two sizes. I'm just returning these now. Obviously the bigger I go, the more the front will jut out and I'll still not be able to fit my foot through to sit my heal properly. :(

Very comfortable sandal - Love them! I'm baffled by the people who say Donald Pliner runs small. I measure as a 6. I wear a 7 sneaker but wear a 5.5 Donald Pliner! I'm keeping the 5.5 and returning the 6.

I needed black wedges and fell in love with these! I was so excited when they arrived...they were super cute! But when I tried them on they were definitely a half size too small! When I looked at reviews from other vendors concerning these shoes they warned buyers to order a size bigger because the shoes ran small. I wish Zappo's had given me that advice before I ordered. I would order these shoes again, just a half size bigger!

Great shoe however I ordered a 11.5 men's and it still felt a little big. Normally I'm a size 12 medium width. If the fit was better I would have kept it. I will say though, due to the design of the sole, it felt a lot sturdier than your regular driving moc. Look at the sole in the photos (side profile and bottom view), you'll see that it's one continuous solid sole, rather than several separate sections of sole.

I love Donald Pliner shoes and these are no exception. I'm removing 1 star because the DJP quality has dropped over time. His shoes at this price point used to be all leather and made in Italy. Today, they're just as cute, but the materials are cheaper. The prices should be lower, too.

Love these shoes. They are comfortable and stylish. The toe bed is too narrow to support my entire big toes. Even with the leather band around the big toe, the side of the toe hangs beyond the sole. I have two other pair of Pliner shoes with more squared off anterior that I love. Wonder if a larger size would look strange with the tapered anterior extending beyond my toes?

I love these shoes EXCEPT they turn my feet black!!!! They are cute and really comfortable but they stain my skin where the patent leather is. It is so embarrassing when I want to kick off my shoes. The first time it happened, my friend said, "Ewwww look at your feet!" and to make it worse, it doesn't come off. U scrubbed with a washcloth and soap and it didn't get all of the stain off my feet. I am totally disappointed because I otherwise love these shoes. I would expect more from a $250 shoe. Zappos can you help? I obviously cannot return them because I wore them.

Nuts. I've been eyeing these sandals for years and finally decided to order them. This particular pair ran very small on my size 9 foot. Could hardly fit my foot into the right one and the left one was very tight. Also, did not feel like the soft leather I expected. They are going back pronto. Grateful that Zappos makes it so easy to try things out.

Sleek, elegant, versatile style. Nice combination of materials for upper and heel. Really wanted this style to work, but could not comfortably slide my feet into because I have a high arch.

Love these wedges! The first pair I ordered in a size 9 but ended up needing an 8 as these run almost a full size larger than I normally wear. They are a little high for me, as I'm not used to wearing heals, but they are super comfortable and easy to put on and take off. I wore these with a long tunic and capris and got several compliments on my outfit as well as the shoes!!

I really wanted to love this shoe but it was way too tight for me in the toe box area. I tend to have a wide-ish foot there now though so this might not be a problem for you. Very nice looking shoe, comfortable in every other respect without looking too much like a "comfort" type shoe.

Love these for a low heel. My usual size is 8.5 but Pliner I prefer the 9, so I believe they run a tad short. These are a beautiful shoe, comfortable fit. If your foot is very narrow this MAY not be the one for you or do choose to get your regular size (not a half size up) to get a snugger fit.

Great shoe! Fit is perfect, and they are very stylish. Great for work or going out at night. They feel great right out of the box. I highly recommend these. I love Donald Pliner shoes but not all are created equal. I think these are going to be one of my favorites. Thank you Zappos for another great shoe shopping experience!

Adorable sandal...ordered a size 9 as that is the size I wear in my other Donald Pliner shoes but they were at least a half size too big. I have re-ordered them in a size 8.5 so hopefully they'll fit perfect. Will review again after receiving the smaller size.

I am completely in love with these shoes. They are pricier than I usually spend, so I waited a week before buying them, but I couldn't stop thinking about them. I'm wearing them for the first time today. They are GORGEOUS! And incredibly comfortable. I could not possibly be happier with them.

My first pair of blue shoes that is not a training or gym one. No disappointment whatsoever! Comfortable, flexible and fanciful. I wear size 14 shoes and DJPs always come correct on my size.

Great looking shoe and fairly comfortable wearing all day even the first time wearing. Nice leather sole and lining, Love the heel! Surprised at how many outfits I can wear them with, looks great with slacks, dresses, and skirts.
