I was a bit hesitant to order shoes with "studs", but the Donald Pliner name and quality helped me overcome this hesitation. It turns out that I find the shoes to be attractive, comfortable and a beautiful fit, with just enough pizazz to put a bounce in my step. I vascillate between wearing a size 8 to an 8 1/2, so i ordered the 8, given that they reportedly run large. I can see them taking me to work, as well as to casual and dressy events. They accompanied me on a recent trip where I was packing light. I learned that the shoes are heavy, not to be tossed in the suitcase when wieght is an issue!

These shoes are quite cute. The problem is sizing. The 7 1/2 is too big and the 7 is too small. I normally wear a 7 1/2-8. I like the stye so much that I am willing to put small pads in the 7 1/2 in order to make them fit better.

If you are looking for a comfortable flat shoe that is more substantial than a ballet flat - this is it! However, the suggestion to order 1/2 size down should be followed with a bit of caution. I normally wear a 6.5, and I ordered a 6.5. Lengthwise the shoe fits perfectly, however, they are a bit narrow. I'm contemplating ordering the size 7 for comparison. I'm glad I didn't follow the suggestion to order down, I never would have gotten my foot in the shoe. Sizing problems aside, these are great shoes and I will be bummed if I can't find a size that works!

I gave these shoes away because they were so dreadfully uncomfortable. They cut across the front of your foot, esp. the ball of the foot, and do not bend. Donald Pliner should be ashamed of putting this on the market.
Cons: Causes Blisters, Cuts Into The Ball Of You, Too Stiff, Uncomfortable
