6th Jan 2022Hi AllanJust wanted to say that I'm very happy with the shoes ... particularly the monkstraps ... they all look greatBest regards and Happy New Year------------------
Just letting you know that the shoes arrived today and I am blown away by them. Not only by the skill used in creating them but the fit is something I have never experienced before. As soon as I slid the first one on, I knew they were amazing and now I know why people pay for bespoke shoes.
I can't thank you enough for managing to finish these off and have them delivered for Christmas and yes, the customs got me, which I don't mind, it's just the extras that they charge which is annoying.
Once again thank you for such a professional approach to help a newbie into the world of bespoke shoes.
My man....ill would give you a hug...but we too far....thank you from the bottom of my heart. I'll be ordering again from you soon. Thanks.

1st Sept 2021Hello “Don”/Allen,Just want to say that you are the best. I’ve bought a couple shows from you and they have held up amazingly well. Big props to you and your company!
26th July 2021
The Fossatos that you made for me are a masterpiece. Best footwear that I have ever used. Perfect fit right out of the box. Easiest to take on and off. And what I had asked you to do is not easy, to make a stable shoe with that degree of elevation, but you did it. What else can I say besides, "Thank you!"
17th July 2021
Just received the shoes today it was absolutely gorgeous. Thank you. Will be ordering another shoes on the first of next but hopefully it will get here sooner.
12th July 2021
I really love the boots. Thank you so much!
6th July 2021Hey Allan,I just got the shoes and they are PERFECT! A true work of art! I can’t wait to order my next pair. Thanks for keeping me in the loop with pictures and answering all my questions.
25th June 2021
These are the best pair of shoes I've ever had. I'm glad I took advice from the Karavel shoe expert. He told me I'd need exact measurements for my wide (while short) feet. These don't hurt at all and don't need that excessive break-in, I usually do for size 8 shoes. because the instep is too low and the shoe is way too narrow.
Received the suede Cacciatore boots and it turned out great. Looking forward to another pair in the near future, possibly in a Chelsea Boot Style.
21st June 2021
Beautiful boots.Thank you!
28th May 2021

Can't imagine how someone returned them, I'm very impressed as usual17th MarchAllan:Thanks for such great expedient freight service. The boots are The Best I have ever seen or worn. Just magnificent.I would please ask for one minor adjustment for my next pair of boot. Just for my own comfort level and for eaaier fit with a normal straight pant leg, could you please reduce the very top of the shaft of the boot by one inch. I included a pic for a visual. The body of the shaft itself is perfect, but the very top is a bit wider than I am used to in cowboy boots. Every other aspect iscabsokutely perfect. Thank you.AWESOME BOOTS!!! @TexasXil1st MarchI got the shoes last night, they're really fantastic. Thank you once again, the quality of your work is excellent. I realized I've been buying from you for 10 years now...starting with that unfortunate flood in Thailand!13th FebThanks so much Alan—the last pair my fiancé loved so much she demanded I get another pair :)Mark27th Jan 2021Hi Don,I am happy to share that the booths arrived Yesterday.

You really respect the money you get, happy holidays and see you soon14th DecAllan,Shoes arrived. They are beautiful. Thanks!1st DecThis order was received, thank you

Thank you so much for doing such awesome work.Sincerely, Joe Napoli10th Oct.Hey Don, I bought two shoes from you, and I can’t lie, they’re the best shoes I’ve ever worn. Endless compliments, and just overall stellar.30th Sept 2020fantastic. I'm a big fan of the quality of the shoes. I quite like the stiff soles on the casual shoes. just like my boss says "underpromise and overdeliver". which is how I feel when I open a Don's shoebox. Thank you very much.24th Sept 2020Allan,
Both the shoes and the belt look amazing. I want to thank you so very much for working so hard to get these ready for me to were to my daughters wedding on October 10th. I will make sure that I locate the review section of your website so that I can make sure I share my praise for you and your company with the world. Thank you again!19th Sept 2020You are amazing! I’ve dealt with Topout shoes, tallmans shoes, chapara (or whatever); all crooks and take advantage of short men. I do charity work and feel my confidence will bring more to helping the world be a better place.I bought these shoes because of YOU. All the shoes most companies are not even flexible whatsoever at the bottom and it makes it very weird to walk. I’m eating a nice young lady on the 30th in Boston so I really thank you for helping me out. I really appreciate you Allan! Have a blessed weekend.9th Sept 2020This pair is so great! I LOVE THEM. Thank you so much! How is the other one coming along? Thank you!3rd Sept 2020HOLY MOLY!!! DAM NICE BOOTS!!! I just got the D.O.N.S Issue 1. They are bad ass. I had asked for a combo leather/rubber sole on the site option and got them in all rubber sole, but no worries. I do like how well the rubber grips the floor for traction. The feeling of the platforn of the agoe is flawless. It does NOT feel at all like an elevator shoe. Dam Allan, no words, you are just kicking ass my friend. PROPS!!27th Aug 2020I wanted to update you it was my dad‘s birthday yesterday and I gave him the boots and he was actually speechless he could not believe the height and the comfort in comparison to what he has worn in the past honestly he did not know what to say. He wants me to thank you and tell you that you are a true artist.
The present could not have been better and I cannot thank you enough it really stole the night truly thank you so much.24th Aug 2020Hello Mr.Donnelly,Thank you so much for these kolakis boots. Best height increasing boots I’ve ever worn for a synchronicity of comfort, style & height increase.- Jay19th Aug 2020
Looks great. Btw, I received the three pairs yesterday and they look great. Thanks so much for your creations and superb craftsmanship. Also, they are very comfortable too. Many thanks again.
Philip18th AUG 2020Allan,My shoes came in yesterday. They look great. I'll be ordering more soon.Thanks,-----Hey Allan,I just recieved the boots, they fit perfectly and are so damn comfortable I don't think I really need to take them off haha.I am very impressed with the quality of the leather. This and the style alone are worth every penny. In comparison to my old cowboy boots that I used with a cheap height increase insert for years, MST is a much more comfortable design. Walking feels natural, and that's all a good shoe/boot needs to do.The first of many future orders. Keep up the good work!
Thank you!17th AUG 2020I hope you are doing well during this crazy Covid time my friend. I think I am hitting a decade of being your customer. I just placed an order for your D.O.N. issue 1. I am also going to get the Minimalist lowtop and a few pairs to update my Don's collection in the coming months.It is awesome that you decided to add this style type to your offering. I have been hoping to see an offering exactly like this casual look for a while from Don's. Your shoes are TOP of the food chain. Everytime I wear shoes from your collection, and that is pretty much always, I get compliments. The funny think is I actually had that style, the Minimalist, in mind for the past 6 months. Anyway major props to you. Stay safe and keep creating such art.15th AUG 2020Hi Allan,Just to let you know that I received the boot's today. They are a perfect fit and very comfortable. My compliments on a GREAT job.With kind regards12th

15th March 2019Don, I got the shoes. They're awesome. You did a superb job. I've never had a pair of custom made shoes before. You are a real artisan.Thank you,
6th March 2019Hi AllanThe shoes arrived last week and I'm loving them!They are best fitting of 3 pairs I have so far. I like the arch support in particular. I think the narrowest part of sole under the arch of foot is slightly narrower than previous ones making a big difference. Also maybe it's the design but the tip alignment is perfect with the latest pair, previous 2 are slightly deviated internally.Thanks for the great job. I'm already looking into next pair.
21st Feb 2019
I meant to send you a note earlier. I received your boots in the mail today and I am absolutely blown away. They are gorgeous- I love the way they fit and the way they make me feel. And you sent them just in time for a vacation! I am very satisfied with this level of quality and service.

I got the shoes I ordered. I can't thank you enough, the look, the quality, and how you listened to my comments about creating extra space for my orthotics. Also you added a few tricks to make sure the heel blended in with the rest of the shoes to make it less obvious.
It's really great that there are people like you that help people like this. I'm definitely ordering another pair as soon as I get my next paycheck.

Hey Don. Just wanted to say a massive thanks for the boots in order ***** They are gorgeous and I received loads of compliments from family members over the weekend.

I just put in another order for 2 more pairs.
Thanks for the great work on the first pair.
(11th of April)
Hi AllanHave received the shoes - they're great.Apart from the excellent craftsmanship and quality, the midsole tech is brilliant.They are so much more comfortable than my other elevator shoes - and feel more stable - I thought for a moment that you'd forgotten they were elevator shoes and had to double check and measure myself.Have taken a walk down the street and am very impressed by the comfort and stability - I don't feel as if I'm leaning forward as I did in the other shoes.I've just ordered another pair in the Botticelli.I've ordered a 10 rather than a 10.5 as the pair I've just received are slightly big for me, but will wear them with inserts, that should make them more snug.Thanks again for the quality, comfort and the speed of delivery.
(11th of April 2017)
Got them today Allan. Worth the wait!Excellent quality and exactly what I was looking for.I will be ordering a dress shoe from you in the near future..Thanks... Doug

The shoe that I told to that felt tight, has stretched and is now perfect. I promise that I will order more, perhaps as soon as your next sale, so when that happens please let me know.Again, I am so proud of these shoes.Thanks again,-----------

(7th March 2017)Can't wait to get the new shoes.Sadly it's time to retire a couple of old pairs bought from your good self.For your reference I've managed 4 and 2 years out of them- with one resole. And given I'm a junior doctor and walk 10-12,000 steps a day I think that's pretty dam good!Thanks for your work once again,Can't wait for the new pair,

The great thing about these MST Monsters is they have a nice, soft clinking sound when you walk with them... like you're Clint Eastwood headed for a gunfight in The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. Just an added bonus, courtesy of Dons Footwear.
(30th Feb 2017)
My shoes arrived yesterday and I could not be more pleased. The quality and and construction appear to be superb. This is my first time with height increasing shoes and the midsole technology appears to make that aspect seamless. I really love the leather and stitching...everything about the overall product. Your service from the time of order to delivery was also excellent. If these shoes wear as well as they look you may not hear from me for awhile but you have definitely acquired a customer for life. Thank you so much!!
(25th Jan 2017
I've just received them (last night). Thank you, they look great and they fit!---------

Hi Allan,Hope you are doing well. I hope to visit you next month, and I wanted to know if it might be possible to get a pair of dress shoes made that have a 4 or 5 inch rise. By the way, I love the shoes I bought last time, I wear them nearly every day and they are holding up great!

I have just received my second pair of shoes today and they are really
very beautiful, of excellent quality.
I congratulate you and your team also on your excellent work. I am
satisfied to have been able to find a company as yours which thinks of the
customer satisfaction with very suitable prices.

My boots arrived today... wow! These are the most comfortable boots I have ever put on and I have lived in Texas my entire life. (Most of the population where's cowboy boots on a daily basis)
You should really consider getting into the cowboy boot market. I have always thought to myself there is no reason cowboy boots should hurt your feet.
And thanks for the extra step up!
I am shorter guy in a land of tall Texans. So it means a great deal to me to have an extra few inches.
Thanks again and I will definitely order more.

You have an absolutely superior product. The midsole technology allows the shoes to have an even platform, as you know, thus decreasing any back pain that can come with typical elevator shoes.
Allan, these shoes are AMAZING!!! They look even better than what I imagined them to be. I'm beyond impressed. These are literally the best shoes I've ever had. And they got here so quickly! :)Thanks so, so, SO much! You've made a huge improvement in my life and for that I'm enormously grateful.Keep up the good work and I'll certainly spread the word around about how great you and your shoes are!Kind regards,

Just a note of thanks - you made a little boy so very happy. His 2-inch heels worked like a charm and for his 9th birthday was finally tall enough to ride all the roller-coasters at Magic Mountain, here in Southern California. We had a great day yesterday; and for the first time my son didn't feel so small.
I received my boots today. They look great, and are a nice fit.
Many thanks for a great service.
Got the brown McVickers and they are beautiful! Thanks again and looking forward to the next pair
Dear Allan ,
I have recieved both the shoes.
The height increase and the colour is fine.They are very comfortable as well.
Other than this and that it took too long to make them, the shoes are great.
I hope you really do value your customer feedback in the future and customize accordingly with less delay.
Thank you and regards,
Im so happy with your shoes! Those are the best quality! You and you're wife were so kind and welcoming
The shoes arrived today! They are absolutely great! Thank you so much for them.

Okay got the boots and they are perfect size and feel and look amazing you out did yourself. I want to buy the same boot with these attributes
Thank you, Allan. I received the shoes-- they look quite beautiful and the midsole tech seems significantly more comfortable than the traditional one. I will let you know how the shoes work out, but I am a happy customer right now.
Many thanks for the prompt work and fast shipping.
Received shoes today and they are beautiful.
Allan - I didn't get any photos you sent but I did get the boots a couple months ago and just wanted to say thank you, they feel and look great! Beautiful work.. Best regards, Jim

Hope you are well.
I was just wondering whether you might give me an update on the below order?
I have been enjoying my current pair of midsole tech shoes - they have hardly aged a bit since I've been wearing them - great quality.
Many thanks in advance,
Great craftsmanship. Love the detailed finishings.
Thanks Allan. I received the first pair of shoes in the mail and
they're terrific! Thank you.
I just received the shoes yesterday -- they are remarkably comfortable, and they look outstanding. I just wanted to say thank you for an excellent product.
I look forward to ordering another pair of a different style soon.
The mid-sole technology is genius - great for walking in. Nice shoes.
One word- perfect. they don't even resemble an "elevator" shoe; they look completely like normal high end shoes
I received the shoes and my son loves them. They
are a bit big but we are going to keep them for him to grow
into because they are so beautifully crafted. We plan to buy others from you in the future.
Just wanted to say I loved the recent 2 pairs of shoes you made. Thanks so much for pushing them through and giving me the loyalty discount. As always such gestures are well remembered and as such you should see another order for 2 pairs of shoes coming to you shortly from me.
Allan, I have to admit, I was a little reserved about purchasing a pair of handmade shoes online as I knew it would either be hit or miss. Received the Falcone MST’s today and I must say I was extremely shocked by the quality of the shoes! I just had to try them on right away. It doesn’t feel exactly the same as regular shoes but it is comfortable enough for me to want to wear them on a regular basis and the arch is very minimal. As you had mentioned they look ab wonderful in jeans as the pants fall on the shape of the shoes really well. Almost sneaker like!
Thank you for a job well done and a pleasure doing business with you! I will be purchasing a pair of dress shoes in the near future and will definitely spread the word.
just received shoes they look and feel fantastic….
I think the shoes were worth the wait.
they are a little tight but I think this will pass. I cannot believe how natural the walking experience is!
Customer for life
Just received your shoes
Exceptional job ! Another planet compared to the one you gave me last time. This one are super comfortable !!!
I was saying that I received the boots and they are gorgeous.
Just arrived back home from holiday- shoes all received and look great. Thank you for your work- I am sure you will have another order from me in a few months when I decide to add another set of your shoes to my collection..
Over the past several years, I have purchased several pairs of Don's shoes and am a loyal return customer. These shoes are premium, consistent in quality, and remarkable in style and design.
Just received the Royston with the gold buckle. May thanks for making them just a little bit wider. They fit great and look fantastic.
I received the boots today and they are extremely comfortable. I also noticed you sent a few inserts.
I got the shoes on Friday and absolutely love them. They are beautifully crafted and the height difference is spot on
Shoes are great! Thanks Allan.
I received another pair of shoes from you. I just want to thank you for the way you handled the situration.
I am def. a lifelong customer. Your shoes are awesome! It also helped to change my self image. I've always been called strikingly handsome but have always felt unattractive due to my height. I am about 5'10 or 11... the shortest in my family. With the shoes i am saving a phychologists bill!! LOL

I just received my shoes today and they are awesome! Very well-made and the fit is perfect. I especially like the arch. Thank you very much. I'm so happy with them that I just placed an order for two more pairs (order # 280)!
I ordered a pair from you for my wedding day, and fell in love with your work.
This is the mad frenchie..
I have a huge problem..???
I cannot wear anything else than your shoes..
Bravo! and thank you..
enjoy the sun..
I just received the first shoes and took a walk in them. They look and feel wonderful, you're the best, thank you! Looking forward to trying the boots when they're ready.
Got the denim boots today, they are remarkable! Thanks so much.
These shoes are better than designer shoes and are of the highest quality. Thanks so much!
Received the boots.
Very nice and super comfortable! My fiance says she can wear high heels when we go out now. haha Will definitely be getting another pair in the future!
Thanks for the response. The boots look amazing! If their fit is as good as their looks, I'll be definitely ordering some other shoe models.
I received them, they're fantastic, thank you very much. Exactly as you described.
Today I receive the shoes!! They are just perfect!!! Thank you so much!!! I'm going to order soon a pair for my wedding!!!
I received my order today and must say these shoes are fantastic! I will definitely be ordering another pair soon.
best shoes I've ever seen and I've paid $300+ for johnston and murphy's before. they don't even compare to your shoes! Can I tell everyone I can about your business and how great it is? Can I order from you in the future? Are there any hard feelings because I wrote you so much?
I received my shoes today and they are better than I could have ever imagined! Thank you so very much. I definitely want to order from you again. I'm so sorry I emailed you so much, they were totally worth it!!!!
I have finally received the shoes. I am very happy with them. Nice work.
I like these shoes, that I didn’t forget, and how I appreciate the work that you put into them. You did a great job and I look forward to ordering more shoes from you.
The work that you provide affects people perhaps in more ways than you realize. I truly believe that you get what you pay for. Although the price may be high for me at this moment, I know that at some point it won’t be. With these shoes, I am now able to wear just about any suit that I want and that is a great feeling.
Here’s a pic of what the shoes look like on. I added a bit more padding on the inside – I’ll tell you about it later when I order my next pair so we can make just some slight modificiations.
Well Allan, thank you once again, I like what you have done with the website and I look forward to hearing from you.
I received the Lucca's today, and they are beautiful, thank you very much?
I'm very happy with my recent purchase from Don's shoes and am interested in purchasing another pair.
I just received them last night, I must say its some work you are doing, these are the best shoes
I have ever tried on, the craftsmanship is inevitable on the first look, it is really lovely to know that I can order such shoes online. I am soon going to place an order for another casual boot. the MST technology is really innovative. I really cant feel any difference between this and a regular shoe. You have certainly made me very happy.
Thank you for giving us such a great product. Quality - A++, shipping - lighting fast, service - 2nd to none!!
Shoes arrived today. Thank you. They look and feel great.
Hope to do business sometime in the future.
Good luck with your business.
I received my Black Suede Falcone’s and they are beautiful ! So Unique. These are my third pair of shoes I have purchased from you. Your shoes really are works of art. I have never had anyone complement my shoes until I started wearing “Dons” now it happens all the time. Keep up the good work. I am starting to save up for my next pair, maybe Falcone's in a light brown nubuck.
Thanks, your shoes are the Best, I ever owned,, I also order a second pair as of today 2/14/2013, thru your web site.., keep up the good work... You got a customer for life.
finally received the shoes today. The build quality is second-to-none and they fit like a glove. Great job, I couldn't be more pleased with them. The shoes are so good that I will definitely order from you again.
The shoes have arrived. Overall, I would say I am impressed with the workmanship. The color is exactly what I wanted and as you promised, they arrived perfectly on time. As of now the shoes are tight on my feet, but I am hoping that if the leather just stretches out a little so that they should eventually fit. Thanks a lot for everything and I will definitely contact you again when I plan on purchasing another one.
Legend does not do justice to describe you!
Awesome nike sneakers!! Thank you.
I am amazed at how comfortable they are - I'm assuming the mid-sole technology has something to do with that.
I really think you have a new niche here. I will give you feedback on the shoe over time, given that it is a prototype so you know what to anticipate for the next launch of your range.
Hey, I got the shoes any they fit and look great! I got nothing but compliments on the shoes. Thanks Allan! I'm looking forward to getting the MST Caterpillar!
The shoes are absolutely amazing and worth the wait
Got the boots a couple of days ago, thank you. They are fantastic!!
Just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you for these boots (MST Monk, 3.1inch lift)
They look excellent and feel very comfortable on the foot. Your MST technology is the work of genius - they allow you to stand as if you are in regular shoes without having to correct the body's propensity to lean forward in regular lift shoes.
I will be buying from you for a very long time.
Keep up the great work.
Your shoes have a more casual appearance and I can already tell I am going to get a lot of everyday, around town use with them. I've received many compliments already as well!
I have received the shoes already...I love them very much. Please record my size and information for my next order.
And I wish u will do good in this business...and do not give up...
Just now i got boots..itsssss remarkable very good shoe..thank you so much love u alot Allan
All three pairs of shoes received. They're exquisite. Thank you.
Just to tell you that i already received the shoes and i liked a lot.
Shoes are very nice and the Quality is great.
Thanks again and soon maybe this week im going to order another pair.
I have received the shoes, the leather quality and workmanship is excellent.
Just recieved the shoes....wow. I am very impressed.
Those are incredible! Although I'm a lawyer by trade, I enjoy a lot of outdoor activities like hunting and riding horses - your boots are comfortable and very well made. I bought a pair from you last year and wore then 100+ time - they are like new.
I received the shoes they are great ! thank You
I just received my dark brown FOSSATO and just want to tell you how happy and proud of my shoes and like what I told you the last time you're simply the best, hands down! Raz
Got them. Very happy too, a fantastic product, I will certainly be ordering again.
I see you are in Thailand, lucky fella, my favourite place, wonderful culture.
I just received my VETTORE shoes and I cannot tell you how happy I am with it. I love the quality of the shoes how's made, the half leather and half rubber sole, very slim/ narrow like how I requested it to be and overall you're the best custom shoemaker in the whole wide world. Please keep this shoe measurement or format for the rest ( FOSSATO) and would love the rest of the shoes to have the same format / platform and the soles have to be half leather and half rubber just like this VETTORE. I look forward to the FOSSATO shoes. Thank you
Yes allan, thanks a lot.it looks awesome and stylish. Exactly what I wanted. I'll keep in touch with you for any future orders...once again, I really appreciated for what you've done. Great work
Some great news!

Can't wait to wear these tomorrow as they look incredible!
I just got the shoes yesterday. They are really good, I wanted to drop you an email just to say thanks and fantastic job! I'll look over your website tomorrow and order a pair of black ones.
Would just like to say what a wonderful job you've done on the shoes. I never normally thank company's for products/service but with you I am making that exception as I am very satisfied so thank you. I'm positive I will buy again from you.

I received my shiny new Quiri. Thank you, they are absolutely fantastic and everything I’ve come to expect from you. They are even finer quality than shoes I ordered from you 2 years ago and that is saying something
They have just come 2day,I am so pleased they are amazing a work of art,I cant tell you how happy I am.I will be your loyal customer till the end, I truly love your shoes.
The shoes are amazing, thank you so much for those.The wedding went great and the shoes went really well with the suit everyone commented on them, saying how good they looked and asking me where I got them. And of course they gave me a nice little lift next to my wife who was wearing heals so I didn't look shorter.Anyway you have been great, fantastic service. I am just about to order another pair from your site in the brogue style, I am hooked.
Although they arrived a week or so ago, this weekend was the first weekend that I was able to head home and get them. Just wanted to let you know that they arrived and I'm quite pleased with them. Happy that I finally get to wear them. I may get more in the future, my dad seems rather interested in them as well. Hopefully the wait won't be as long!
The shoes are fantastic! Nice quality. I will definately buy another pair and I have referred a friend to you also for a purchase. Thanks. Cheers,
I just received my first order and I'm very impressed with the style and quality of your shoes. In fact, I'd like to order more.
I've noticed that there are improvements in the designs of the shoes. It is easier to fit the trunk of my pants on to the shoes. This is really a big improvement because it looks more natural when I wear the shoes. Personally, I like my shoes more pointed, maybe nxtime I'll tell you beforehand so you can make some adjustments? But anyways keep up the good work.
I received the shoes today and I have to say that I have been very impressed by them! I will definitely be ordering more and I can't wait till the casual collection comes out!!
I got the shoes yesterday and I love them! They're so comfortable.I will definitely be ordering more in the future. Thanks!

I received the Salerno's yesterday and they are perfect
Thank you for sending through the Fara con sola shoes - they are of exceptional quality and are very comfortable.
Got the shoes and they are fantastic
Spot on! They arrived this morning. they fit nicely.
Picked up your delivery today and was so excited I opened the box right outside of the post office they are terrific looking shoes, the quality
is all you told me and the leather is subtle as italian, stitching looks perfect
My shoes arrived safely on Tuesday and I am very pleased with them.
I really like the thicker sole and the heel/insole area really cushions your step. The leather is fantastic - is it cowhide? The shoes are really well finished - down to every detail. They make high street leather shoes look like a joke!
I have received the shoes and the quality is superb!
I did receive the pair of Savona shoes today via post and am very satisfied with the quality of the shoes.
Thank you for your time and effort.
The shoes arrived in time and in excellent condition. I must say the quality of the shoes are excellent and I was quite impressed with them, they fit and looked great. I did receive several compliments on them, I was getting married and was searching for this type of shoe
I just received the shoes today, and they're incredibly well-crafted. Despite the wait, I'm satisfied with the finished product. The shoes are great! Thank you!
I must admit after wearing them that they are a fantastic pair of shoes! Even though they are lifted, they are incredibly comfortable, which I can't say for any of my other pairs.
The shoes arrived. They are incredibly made, look great...even smell great!
I hope all is well!
Yesterday I finally received my shoes! I did wait almost 1 month but I have to let you know that I absolutely love my new shoes and you have done an incredible job

The last pair of shoes i received from u was amazing. Alot of ppl told me it look great.I'll be soon ordering from u again.
I have actually received the shoes they are unbelievably awesome. I will be place an other order for a couple more pair.
I just received the shoes, now you made me a happy man. It took a long time
P.S: I love the work you did on these shoes. That is the only reason I would order more.
I received my shoes today and I'm extremely pleased with them. The quality is astonishing and they're very comfortable.
I received the shoes….They’re beautiful..And they’re comfortable.Great job... Thanks so much
I cant wait for my other pairs. Even on the Savona 3.6 inch is comfortable, no pain in the toes or the feet like previous elevators, walk is straight no limbing and no odor, and the weight of the shoes is really good.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!
The shoes have arrived. They look nice, are well built, and fit good, now I just need to break them in.
Hi Allan, my shoes arrived yesterday. The wait was worth every minute. The quality and craftsmanship is fabulous. What model do you recommend for jeans? Thank you,
The wedding was great and shoes were perfect! He loved them! We will probably order another pair in the near further!
Thanks again Allan!
Don's customer service was second to none. I received prompt email responses to all my inquiries, and received no hassle with the adjustments I had to make on my order. The pride the company has on customer satisfaction really shows. Thanks Don's.
Don's is much better than any of the other elevator shoe websites that I have come across. I rate Don's 5 stars and two thumbs up!"
I finally received my shoes and I absolutely love it. You're the mannnn!!! Looking forward onto ordering more shoes soon.
The shoes are wonderful, look great and are comfortable. I have been wearing them out often in Los Angeles. When I got them I had a local cobbler slightly widen the toe area for a little bit more room, and now the fit is absolutely perfect. The first time I wore the shoes I had difficulty walking with the lift, but after one night of wearing them I had no problems at all and it felt natural... also seems to force me to stand straighter, which is good. The leather is so soft, and I really like the matte finish. I am very happy with my order.
The shoes have arrived, worth every penny I have spent.I'll be soon ordering another pair from you.
I received the shoes and they are amazing. Very comfortable, very stylish, and obviously well-constructed. The leather is gorgeous and I can tell the work on both pairs involved a lot of love and personal attention.
You are on to something here! I have been waiting for this level of quality in such shoes for years, and finally your company and brand has made it happen. Bless you and all your staff!
Just to let you know, the shoes arrived today. Beautifully made and an excellent fit. It is going to take me a Happy new year
Got the dellas today! I have to say the shoes you make are great quality. These fit well and are very comfortable considering the height increase. I am planning to order the boots you're working on as soon as possible. Iwould like one in black and one in brown size 11.... Thank buddy...Great shoe!
Thanks a lot sir . I have got the shoes finally .They are superb , mindblowing . Happy new year sir .
Just received the shoes last night. I want to let you know that I am extremely pleased with the shoes – they far exceeded my already high expectations. As someone who has been buying high quality shoes in Boston for a long time, I was really impressed with the very obvious “hand made” quality, the fineness of the leather and stitching, and most of all the real comfort of these shoes. The fact that they comfortably make me more than 6 feet tall is actually just an added plus.
I was apprehensive ordering from a new company, online, and with all of the ups and downs from the startup of your procedures. The shoes, however, were well worth the wait – and I will most certainly be a repeat customer.
Received the shoes today. Love it. The front sides are a little tight but I think they will stretch out in a few days. Will certainly buy from you again in the near future.
These are the most comfortable and nicest shoes I; think I;ve ever bought.Good stuff.
Just received 2nd pair and wow they are incredible…
Hi Al - my Potenzas arrived a bit earlier - fantastic workmanship and fit.
I am very pleased - especially with the darker, marbled finish.
Very keen to the Black Bergamos –
Spent some time wearing the shoes, and they are great and worth the wait. I hope to order another pair soon.
I received my shoes last week, thank you very much. Very nice shoes and very best quality ! congratulations. This is the same quality as Bugarri shoes....with modern style !!
Got my shoes today, and they are beautiful. The size is also perfect! They are suoercomfortable! I am ordering more shoes for the summer!
Thank you Allan! The shoes are fantastic. Will be a repeat costumer for sure.
For the tuxedo shoes, what is the best way to take care of them? Is there a special shoe polish to use?
I got the shoes yesterday they look great! You did an excellent job.Now thinking about getting another pair soon...hope you can get me a discount on the next ones
Received the shoes Allan, no worries about the colour I like them very much. Well done!
The fit is very good I will definitely be making use of the member area in the very near future, Thanks again.
I got the shoes today and not only do they look fantastic and are of great quality but they also fit me perfectly which is what I feared.. I am ordering a few more pairs right away..
The shoes just arrived and they are just stunning. I will certainly order another pair from you. The cream is no problem, but your are right, I do prefer a more matte shoe.
They took time, but the shoes are a work of art. Thanks,
I received the shoes today. They are beautiful. Great job!
Just received my first pair from Don’s They are awesome! This is order #2! Myfirst pair were ordered as 9’s and are marked 42’s, they fit great.
Got the shoes today, many thanks! They look great and the fit is good, the brown shoe definitely is a favorite. Fits like a glove.
