    Hi all,

    New to this forum. Any opinions on this DJP shoe? I find the look to be nice and sleek, but a small part of me thinks it looks a bit weird, with the non-stiched look. Looking to wear these mainly for the office with dress pants.

    Thanks for any opinions!

    I picked up a pair of awesome DP ankle boots in a deep blue leather at 50% off at his Rodeo Drive boutique a few years back. His women's shoes are great, but most of his mens' shoes are a bit too "fashion forward" for my taste. Great casual shoes if you are <30 years old, but not suit and tie wear for me.

    very comfortable shoes, not bad for weekday office shoes.

    Nothing compared to any of the high end shoes.

    hi there.

    those are pretty subtle shoes, considering they're made by donald j pliner. which is pretty much like saying my pontiac aztek is nice because it comes in black rather than in yellow.

    but then again the donald still makes his shoes in the mountains of italy so they must be special. :)

    personally I'd rather walk 10 miles to work barefoot.

    I've got a few of their boots: they usually last a couple of seasons and good for casual wear. A decent deal at 50-60 percent off

    DJP makes nice shoes for women. This being said his men's shoes are fucking ugly.
