These are my new go-to shoes. Seriously? The best shoes I have bought in years. I love them so much, I'm considering buying a second pair to have in reserve. I only wear comfort shoes, usually European brands, due to past injuries and the fact that I have MS and have balance problems. These are super comfy, without looking like clunky old grandma shoes. They look cute with crops and skirts, and the ankle straps keep them on securely. I have average ankles, and the ankle straps have loosened up a little after a few months' wear. Not too much for me, but could be a problem for someone with very tiny ankles.

Nice quality, I will purchase this brand in future. My one issue with all women's fashion comfort shoes is: why the need for an elevated heel (unless of course the shoes are designed specifically to be heels)? This design puts a lot of pressure on forefoot.

At first I thought these shoes would not work out for me. But I live in Mexico and since returning was nearly impossible, I decided to 'make them work'. I wore them out on cobblestones and, although at first there were a few places that rubbed from straps, they seemed to conform and I forgot the problems. They are beautiful shoes and I'm glad I gave them a chance.

I love these shoes! I have them in two colors now! They are so comfortable the first time you put them on. They fit very true to size! Usually I have trouble with the straps rubbing blisters on my feet, but none of that with these sandals!

These are both stylish and comfortable. I was hesitant about the price. But they are definitely worth it. I have problem feet and I don't like the way my toes look in most sandals. I love the way my feet look in these sandals.

I had such high hopes for these sandals. At first, I thought they were going to be awesome. Then I wore them for an afternoon where I tripped up a flight of stairs and got foot burn from the movement the elastic strapping allowed. Guess they just weren't made for me. :(

A really cute style, but the straps just aren't low and tight enough across the foot bed. My foot slips around in these. Keeping it at 4 stars in case it's just my foot and not the sandal.

Super soft and prettier in person. The nude snake is much prettier than it appears in the photo. The leather looks richer, as does the snake print, and the pale, peachy, nude-beige is subtle and pretty. It's a really great nude for fair skin, just enough hint of peach/pink to be much prettier than many beige-tan so-called nude shoes. The leather, especially the lining is butter soft. There were no rough seams or anything that would rub--something my sensitive feet have a hard time finding. I really wanted these to work. But they run wide, and my slightly narrow feet couldn't keep them on. They are fairly unstructured, as in the heel and sides are soft and not at all rigid. That would be great and very comfortable if they fit. I tried going a half-size down and could almost make that work. But that smaller size was too snug in the toe and still a bit wide in the heel. There is a moderate arch support, probably sufficient if you don't have a high arch. Overall, much more comfortable than most flats, beautiful leather, quality construction for a soft, comfy shoe. But, they definitely run wide, so didn't work for me. I wish Gentle Souls offered narrows.

Cute shoe, cork "color" goes with everything! Unfortunately just didn't look "right" on my foot. The shoe seemed a bit longer on my foot, going further than my toes. I think I do better with a slight wedge heel instead of completely flat. It felt a little confined with so many straps and the lace up for me. But still a cute shoe, well made.

So cute on! Unfortunately they just didn't fit my foot right - they were a little loose all around foot and the strap hit my ankle weird. Super disappointed because they would go well with so many things. Cute shoe and great color!

The shoes I wanted were sold out so these were my second choice. They are a little pricey for me, still can't believe I bought them. So they really needed to be all that. Which is comfort for work as I run around all day, something for skirts and dresses and stylish too. This combo is hard to find. I'm a 6.5 and they fit perfect. They feel like they could use a little breaking in as the right side was rubbing the outside of my foot. I'm starting to get bunions and the doctor said no more pointy shoes and better cushioning. So these fit the bill so far. They come up high enough on the inside to not hit the big toe bone. I just received so I can't comment on overall comfort, but out the box they feel good.

These shoes fit all the criteria I wanted in a new black shoe. They allow me to take a rest from polishing toes. They are very comfortable. They are very cute and the strap keeps them from flopping up and down since I have a narrow heel and adds to the style. My only complaint is that the buckle is hard to manage since it is so small. The heel is low but adds just enough and helps posture.

I have had these shoes for almost four years now and they are still holding up perfectly and are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes that I have ever worn. I have worn them around amusement parks for days, at music festivals, and traveling through other countries and never once did my feet hurt or blister. They are incredible. Also, every time I wear them I get so many compliments and everyone asks me where they're from! These really are the perfect sandal.

The shoes feel a little wide to me, but I love them so I will wobble around. The elastic around the ankle is a little loose also, but I can't imagine going down a size as then the toes would be smooshed. I would not consider myself to be one with small ankles, so if you have small ankles this might be a big problem. These are very cute shoes when you want something that is closed toed, stylish and comfortable. I am keeping them even with the imperfections. We will see how they last!

Completely up to Gentle Souls' standards--gorgeous leather,so well made and comfortable right out of the box. Just what I wanted, classy with just enough edge with straps and buckles. Could spend a lot more on boots of this quality and style. Very happy they're now in my closet.

These are good quality, sexy, comfortable enough. I had to return two sizes due to the leather upper being too far back on my foot. So an 8.5 had my toes barely peaking out, and an 8 a little better but my heel off the back edge. I have thicker ankles. Too bad. And so expensive.

I loved these shoes! And then I continued to wear them. I think I'm at the 10th day of wear and the black has worn off and they look super run down. I would buy a different color than black next time but I'm super disappointed for a nearly a pricey shoe. I love the arch support but they are made of cheap material and the rubber bottom soul is starting remove itself from the shoe, really not worth the money. Maybe if they were less bucks I would considering buying them.

LOVE these shows and this brand. The shoes feel like air on my feet. This is my third pair of gentle souls and they are all so comfortable. I have tricky feet and can't really wear heels so I'm always looking for stylish flats, sandals and boots. I want more options from this brand because I'd buy into the whole system.

Oh, how I love these shoes! So comfortable and adorable. Love the leg-lengthening neutral color. I am usually a 7.5 or an 8 - for these shoes I went with the 8 for a perfect fit. I did not find them overly wide at all, maybe they have corrected this?

I was looking for a cork wedge with a gladiator-type look and these are perfect! The footbed is soft and the shoe is lightweight. I typically wear a 6 1/2 and these fit perfectly. I am slightly less than a medium in width (I never need to order "narrow") and these are great because the laces allow you to adjust if necessary. Worth the money in my opinion.

I love these shoes. So soft inside and the straps actually give a little arch support so I can wear them all day.
