About Donald J Pliner

Donald J Pliner Visionary designer Donald J Pliner launched his line of luxury men's and women's footwear and accessories in 1989. Almost immediately, his name became synonymous with innovative design and high style and unprecedented comfort.

Inducted into the Footwear News Hall of Fame in 2004, Pliner still designs every pair of shoes himself, carefully screening each new design to ensure perfect fit and function. The Donald J Pliner corporate office and showroom, located on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, transports visitors inside the highly visual world of the designer's mind. A museum-like presentation of shoes-as-art coexists comfortably with a relaxed living-room-like setting.

And while casual comfort marks the atmosphere of his office, Donald J Pliner is anything but laid back. Nothing goes unnoticed in the world of Donald J Pliner. Colors, shapes and profiles all have meaning. Creative director Lisa Pliner, Donald's wife, works side-by-side with Pliner to develop each new collection, inserting her artist's vision into the designs, colors and textures. The couple’s pure white Maltese, BabyDoll, is an ever-present influence as well. Today, Donald continues to develop an innovative line of luxury comfort footwear, mixing creative energy with ongoing entrepreneurial spirit. The company has expanded to include footwear for men and women, leatherwear for men and women, handbags, and belts. There are five Donald J Pliner concept stores in Miami, Coral Gables, Houston, Las Vegas, and San Jose.
