The Helio loafers are tiny! I have a short, wide size 6.5 foot and always wear DJP in a size 7 since the leather is so soft and they usually go on like a dream This shoe; however, is short and narrow. When I unboxed it, it immediately looked like a baby shoe: like I had ordered a 6 or 6.5, not a 7. I checked the box and I did order size seven. I ordered the black, navy and saddle and they are all tiny, tiny tiny! The saddle is now sold out in a 7.5, which I think would be too long anyway, I have never worn a 7.5 in my life. I guess I am stuck with trying to stretch these expensive, small but very good-looking shoes. The quality is delicious and other than sizing the construction is sound and the comfort would be there if they were not so squeezing on my feet.

Disappointed from Providence, RISeptember 13, 2022
perfect
Great style. Not too too clunky, but funky clunky... in a good way. Love restrained non-shiny buckle detail. All good. Fit typical. Need tape on heel if no socks.

Super Stylish and Comfy
I love these loafers. The black patent accents are subtle and stylish, and they are comfy & true to size. I have narrow heels, so I find the heels a bit loose, but I can still wear them (most loafers have wide-fitting heels on me). Highly recommend. Nice quality leather insole, too.

The quality of the shoes are great and can’t find in a regular show store.Buying on line was very easy as well and if they weren’t quite what you had in mind the return was easy as well.

Great loafer
Nice detailing, Super cool colors. They are elegant yet casual. They run small and D.P. doesn't offer a 10.5 so the 11 worked.

Too Small but Perfect w/ Correct Size
I am updating my earlier review of the tiny, tiny shoe. I returned all three colors I purchased (saddle, navy and black) and reordered them a half size larger. This did the trick for my short, wide feet. Whereas my regular size was excruciatingly narrow and short, a half size up was perfect. These loafers are like butter! So comfy and the lug sole is very cute. I did give them a weather spray and they, like the many, many other DJP shoes I have purchased, are gorgeous construction, materials and (adjusted) fit. Love these!!

Happy in Providence from Rhode IslandNovember 27, 2022
I also bought this shoe. It is really quite beautiful. However, it is way too narrow for a size 10. This shoe is made for a narrow foot. If you have a foot that is wide or even a bit wide, look for another shoe.

Do NOT size upon this shoe. I believed the comment, ordered a half size larger…they are huge…I had to return and exchange for my normal size.

Shoes are very comfortable I love the look as well a little clunky and stylish at the same time. The fit was snug initially and had stretched some to the point where my foot moves around too much . I always need to size down half a size in Donald Pliner shoes . The fit seems to have changed in the last three years .

Perfect sizing for my feet! Love the color and combo-Tomato red!
I am a long time client of DJP. I used to buy many, many pairs when DJP made them in ITALY, not in Asia, However, I looked at these shoes, and said I think I will get them! In spite of the negative size reviews - they worked perfectly in my normal size - an 8. I used to sometimes buy a 7.5 in the original DJP at times, but also had to get an 8 when the style was cut on a more Italian foot bed than the US sized foot. The color is delicious! The style is right now - and the comfort level - a big factor for me and the rest of the world - is superb! The atyle is classic yet modern with the lug sole and the rounded toe! This was bought after I had a problem with an over-sized fit of a different style. I intend to wear these 24/7/12 - as they go with most everything except a formal event. Do yourself a favor - Sunshine Brands owns DP now and for several years, give these a true try - you will not be disappointed..I am a shoe-coholic, and love them madly! Feel like I'm walking on a cloud and yet, great support. YAY!!!!

Runs Narrow
I do not wear wide shoes, so I was very surprised when I tried these on and how narrow they are. I read the reviews and then re-ordered a half size bigger. These were still narrow and much too long. I kept the original pair and will be taking them to the shoe repair shop to have them stretched.

I loved the look of the Helio loafers and purchased them for a trip.They are beautiful shoes but have stretched and are so uncomfortable and awkward to wear. I have worn them twice, regretfully.

I couldn’t love these shoes more. I wanted a loafer with a lug sole but sent several back from other brands because they were so heavy. These are really pretty shoes. They run large by 1/2 size. Nice quality

Comfy right out of the box
I was on the fence about getting these after reading some of the reviews. Let me say, they are so conformable. I wear a size 10, ordered a size 10 and just glad I pulled the string on these.

Too narrow!! I don’t have an exceptionally wide foot, but medium. I have been looking for the perfect pair of lug soled loafers for sooo long. Like since August. I’ve ordered some discounted pairs that took me hours to find (they didn’t work out, also too narrow!) and I decided to order these full price because I figured I’d wear them so much it would be worth it. Soooo disappointed. They’re also a little short for my size, but that could just be that they’re narrow so it’s taking up some length when I put my feet in them. I have never been any shoe size other than a 38 or 7.5 and have never had trouble ordering shoes online, but apparently this is my year to have things not work out. They’re such an amazing looking shoe. If you have a more narrow foot, order as many pairs as you can afford.

Absolute perfection, style and comfort!
Loafers arrived in three days! The fit was absolutely perfect and the comfort beyond expectations after wearing for only 10 minutes! Which mean they will be my one pair of shoes ( taking one sandal) for two week trip to Madrid and Barcelona. I wanted something as comfortable as my athletic shoes that I wear daily but are more appropriate and can be worn with every outfit.
