The leather is soft and of excellent quality. The heel is perfect both esthetically and comfort wise. These are very chic.

I have to agree with other reviewers who said these were overpriced. These look adorable and I've gotten lots of compliments on them, but there's no arch support to speak of. I started to wear mine with arch inserts after I began getting shooting pains up my legs. (And no, I'm not a senior citizen!) The other problem is the insert. I wore these without socks which was a big mistake. The inserts make your feet sweat a lot, and then the leather turns black, and then it smells pretty bad. Any sock you wear after that turns black too. I wrote to the company for replacement inserts but they don't sell them. So, great shoes, but probably worth around $75, not this price.

I have these in antique pewter and absolutely love the style. They can be dressed up or down. The foot beds feel like heaven, although I don't think I would wear these for a LOT of walking. They do work well for standing on my feet all day at work, though. These run big because I'm almost always a 9, but I had to exchange my 9s for 8 1/2 which fit perfectly. I've been looking for a comfy, grown-up, lux ballet flat and have finally found it in these shoes!

I love these boots. I am a size 7 and bought a 7. They are plenty wide but good with heavy socks and room to tuck in pants. The buckles are adjustable. They are easy to wear all day. I have had lots of compliments. Actually this was my first time buying this brand but I will buy it again.

I wore sandals all summer so the need to wear closed toe shoes was difficult. I needed something soft and pliable. These shoes fit the bill! I love them and wear them with both slacks and dresses. They are so soft that I worry about them becoming mis-shapen quickly, but I'll take that chance for comfort.

I LOVE Gentle Souls! So comfortable and so good looking with leggings and a tunic top. Style and comfort can't be beat!

Soft, super cute boots! Love them. Not too overdone with the buckles, the leather is luxurious. Height is perfect for tucking in my slim leg jeans. Perfect!

These don't seem as well made or comfortable as other similar Gentle Souls styles. The pair I received was defective and had a seam with 4" not even attached; I was really surprised at the poor quality.

I was a long time fan of Gentle Souls but was disappointed with my recent purchase of not 1 but three of the shoes I ordered. The shoes did not feel the same like before, the shoes were tight so I took to the shoemaker to stretch. He said he didn't think that this was deerskin lining. It feels different.

It was like this with all three models.

These are the most comfortable and best booties that I have ever bought. The leather is very soft, the heel perfect for being on my feet all day and the details people talk about. They are well worth the price!

I really like this boot. However, I would advise that you pay attention to the reviews that tell you to size down - this boot does stretch with wear. Additionally, it is open on one side so it is already a loose feel - so if you are looking for a snug or close fit you will not like the feel of this one. If it feels "right" out of the box you will not be happy after a few wearings! They are a high quality boot, nice leather, and overall I'm happy but they did take a bit to find the right size!

One shoe perfect and a little loose like I like it. The other shoe tight. This usually doesn't happen to me. Also the color isn't pretty in real life. The shoe that fits is so comfy though, that I might try them in black if they go on sale.

I bought a pair of these shoes several years ago in a local store. They are the most comfortable I've ever owned and wished I could find them to have a second pair. Someone suggested I look at Zappos. I was happy to see them on your website and happy to receive them promptly after ordering them. They feel like walking on clouds but are not clunky ; they are my go-to dress shoes (I no longer wear heels).

These are the most comfortable boots I have ever owned! In fact, they are more comfortable than most shoes. I feel like I am walking on a cloud. The inner soles are so darn cushy...I totally understand why they call their footwear Gentle Souls. I've been looking for a pair of boots to replace my old and beat up Nine West brand boots with similar styling. I'm super fussy when it comes to my boots and not just any pair/style will make me happy. These boots make me happy in every way possible!

These are not my favorite shoes. If I wear these to work (in an office, where I do not walk around much), my feet hurt at the end of the day because there is not enough padding at the bottom of them. They are comfortable enough up top, but the bottoms are so thin that using them as daily shoes feels kind of like wearing house slippers in the real world.

The leather is thick and supple and of high quality. They are not a super feminine style but still classic and beautiful. They are very comfortable. They were a bit snug, I am almost always a 7.5 but I can only wear thin socks with these. I might have sent them back for a larger size but I loved them so much I wanted to wear them.

I have an old pair of these very same shoes that I loved so I ordered a new pair. After receiving the new shoes I wore them a few times and the strap on top is very tight and very uncomfortable. I am going to have to get them stretched (if I can).

These shoes are so comfortable right out of the box. Plenty of toe room! I wore them barefoot in warmer weather; now that it is cooler outside I am wearing them with thin socks or tights. Either way I have received many compliments on them!
