Great color and style, but they ran large. Also if you have bunions the cut right at that area of the foot.

These are so cute and flattering and appear more expensive than they are. (I was surprised to find that Gentle Souls are made by Kenneth Cole; that explains the style and quality.) However, I'm returning mine because I have big calves and not much ankle (I'm 5'2') so I know the height of the back portion and straps will eventually rub me to irritation. So sad because I know these would go with so many outfits. (I ordered the "Nora" at the same time and I'm definitely going to keep those.)

This is an unwelcome change in a brand with a beautiful/comfortable design in round toe flats. I used to buy a similar shoe (Gabby) from Gentle Souls but I always purchased size 11. 11 in this shoe was both too long and too wide. I bought size 10 but both the sole and the leather are not the quality of the previous shoe. I kept it. I'll see how it works out.

I agree with one the reviewer that these boots might be slightly narrower than average, but after I'd worn them a few hours, they seemed to stretch and morph to fit my foot. These boots are super comfortable and stylish. I received many compliments from my students the day I debuted them at school...and my feet didn't hurt at the end of the night. Win.

OMG!!!!! These are FABULOUS!!!! I own one other pair of Gentle Souls and love them but, for some silly reason, I tend to forget to check them out when I'm on Zappos. It's probably just as well since I'm now likely to purchase one of each of this style in all three colors! Did I say these are FABULOUS???!!! I bought the sand (brown) on sale and while I wish the mushroom and black were also on sale, they are definitely well worth their regular price tag! I adore wedge platforms and own many different styles. However, I don't enjoy their often lack of cushioning and supportive comfort especially for the balls of my feet. These babies, though, wow! There's a reason they have such high reviews! Like walking on clouds! I purposely tested them out today because the balls of my feet have been incredibly unhappy after my wearing heeled boots for three days straight. I figured putting these on would be the ultimate test since my feet are already in pain. I don't feel even the slightest discomfort now and I wish it wasn't 30 degrees outside so I could wear them out! FABULOUS!! If you're on the fence, don't be! You won't regret buying these shoes! They are well worth the investment.

Delicate gladiator shoe with comfortable footbed. Run long, so had to get a half-size down. Straps hide my bunions and wide size fits just fine.

I love this bootie! This is cute and comfy, except it runs about a half size small. Too bad for me the 8.5 is not available. Sadly, I had to return them.

Nice funky style - wide toe box makes them very comfortable, but very casual. The heel area is quite loose for my foot so shoe kept falling off. Had to return. Was tempted to keep and look for heel inserts, but too expensive to take the chance that it wouldn't be satisfactory.

Very cute shoe for casual wear; super comfortable except runs a little small. Was unable to wear normal size without pressure on toes, so sadly had to return.

These shoes were really comfortable and immediately felt great on my feet. However, I tried them on with slacks and a dress, but they didn't suit either style. They just felt a little frumpy. Definitely a very comfortable shoe, but might not suit younger customers.

At first I thought these flats were too big, but after wearing them I like how they are a tad loose. Very comfortable with an added piece of arch support. If you have never purchased Gentle Souls shoes before, they run slightly large and you need to go down half a size.

Runs small, order 1/2 a size up or even 1 whole size up if you like your boots roomy. These are gorgeous and comfy. The only thing that slightly bothers me is the finish at the bottom edge, it looks like some of the paint is chipped off but you can't tell unless you're really up close and looking for it. You can see it on the preview photo if you zoom in. For shoes that cost so much, I expected more finesse but that's just my personal taste.

I have a narrow heel and usually have troubles with a closed heel however, this shoes is so comfortable, I guess the bands across the top help secure my foot in the shoe. I have worn them on two occasions and have had multiple compliments. I highly recommend this shoe, i don't think anyone would be disappointed.

Well, I'm going to have to retract my prior review above. All that is still true, but less than a month out the trim is coming off in multiple places. Of course, Zappos makes everything right to your satisfaction! Disappointed in these shoes.

I LOVE this shoe style and find them to be very feminine and comfortable. I like the wedge heel, which gives me a little lift but not at the expense of comfort. This will be my third pair in this style--my only complaint is that the elastic bands on the pair I received seemed a bit larger than the others. They still keep my foot from coming out of the shoe when I walk, but they don't feel as secure as the other two pair. I got the medium brown which is a beautiful caramel color, a nice neutral, and it goes with everything. Very happy with the brand and the style.

This shoe is awesome. I have bunions and it has been impossible to find a dressy shoe that is comfortable and stylish. The top view shows how slimming this shoe is on. Worth every penny. I just ordered another pair of gentle soles in another style.

Love this style, I already own the black however they need just a bit more arch support to make them perfect.

I walk a lot and am generally pretty hard on my shoes, but I found the outer heels wore down on these within a week or two. I found them comfortable but was frustrated with the lack of durability.

Beautiful, sexy, comfortable - unless you have a bunion because the picture doesn't show that on the inside, the leather cuts lower than on the outside, showing the bunion.

Bay Unique's are my favorite summer travel shoe and they are as perfect for urban adventures through cobbled streets and up the narrow hillside villages of romantic Europe as they are strolling through Mississippi River towns. With rubber soles that grip the road and assures no slipping, soft elastic ankle straps that never feel binding and don't chafe, a wonderfully cushioned footbed and a wide enough vamp that provides toes enough room to flex and swell after a hot day of sightseeing the single drawback is that they are not available in more colors! Navy! Red! Tan! And they look feminine and great with a skirt or with pants. I love these shoes so much that I bought another pair to keep in the box for next summer. You know the feeling - that panic that the style you love will be discontinued. Expensive but worth every cent.
