Our Story


Footwear Since 1989


For almost 30 years, Donald Pliner has built a reputation for innovative materials, remarkable design and quality craftsmanship in men’s and women’s luxury footwear and accessories. The brand is known for combining premium leather and materials with impeccable design, while holding quality fit and comfort to the highest standard.


From the beginning, Donald Pliner has brought innovation and thoughtfulness to the design and construction of accessory products. The brand was first to market an all-over crepe elastic shoe that is still one of our best-selling material variations today. Exceptional materials such as haircalf, fine suedes, and exotics are routinely used to create contemporary style choices. Embellishment takes center stage with elaborate hand beading and unique decorations on many shoes and handbags.


Donald Pliner offers a full range of footwear for both women and men, including casual and dress styles in a wide variety of silhouettes. We are well known for everything from women’s wedges, slip-ons, boots, pumps, sandals and handbags to men’s oxfords, loafers and sneakers. Our designers create one-of-a-kind, noteworthy styles that lend themselves to being special and unexpected.
