These are so cute and stylish but the strap dug into the top of my foot and the back hit at an awkward height which was uncomfortable, so I had to return.

First of all...there's no place like Zappos. When I want something...Zappos sees to it that I get it...Zappos! Love these boots...so comfortable, and stylish. And, warm, great on slick surfaces. Never knew a gentle soul shoe existed until Zappos. Went 1/2 smaller...across the foot was too wide.

This is a great shoe if you want to look nice, but take a break from a high heel. They are adorable! I have gotten compliments every time I have worn them. They are comfortable for most of the day, but was ready to take them off when I got home. I ordered the size I always wear in a boot and they fit perfect.

I love these booties. My body felt so great standing tall in them. The wedge and the quality of the design provide an interesting rocking effect for the feet. I think these boots are great. You will be investing in health and comfort.

It's only first impression. If I'm going to keep them, I will add more later. Surprised that it is made in China. After close inspection every details found impeccable quality. Patent upper gives chic and stylish look. Inside leather feels soft, cushion gives arch support, which is very important for my back. The size runs true. Usually my size is 7, 7.5. I ordered 7 and it feels okay. I have narrow feet with long big toe and this style is just for me. The only problem is (and I knew it before I ordered) low cut. It is rubbing against ankles and front part of foot. I hope that soft enough leather will stretch after while and this problem works out.

This boot is very comfortable, but the covered heel gives the ankle an awkwardly large silhouette.

I do not write reviews often, but I had to about these boots. They are so comfortable. I live in New York City and walk long distances and they are as comfortable at the end of the day as they are in the beginning.

I own several pairs of Gentle Souls, all in 8.5, and love this comfortable brand, so I ordered these in an 8.5. When I try on shoes, I always try on the right foot first because, at least in my mind, that foot is a little bit bigger than my left. I tried on the right with a light pair of socks, and although I thought it could have been just a tiny bit longer, it was still comfortable. Then tried on the left -- way too tight across the widest part of my foot. I seriously think that shoe was defective. They are so cute, stylish, and have that nice pebbly leather I love so much, that I was so sorry to have to send them back. But I'm thinking about reordering them in a 9, which would allow me to wear a heavier sock, hoping that they will not be so narrow.

These boots are so comfortable, they feel like marshmallows!! Lightweight, very soft leather, not too clunky. I recommend going down a 1/2 size. I am a Hair Stylist and was able to wear all day in total comfort!

I bought these shoes based on previous reviews but I'm very disappointed. In my opinion these shoes are poorly made. They felt tight on my feet mainly because the tight elastic but were wide. I like nice high quality shoes but these are not well made and not worth the price.

Expensive, but beautiful boots! Soft, warm deerskin leather, and solid buckles combine with a sturdy tread to make a lovely boot. The top buckle allows a little customization. Only downside is the inside heel is wide and I get a lot of heel slippage. I bought a pad to go inside and help cut that down.

I cannot say enough good things about these boots. I am a hairstylist on my feet 8 to 11 hours a day, & I have never found a pair of shoes to hold up all day. I have tried Clarks to no avail, but these are simply amazing! The fact that they are stylish is a big Plus. I would recommend them to anyone that Wants an all day New York shoe to walk around in, you will not be disappointed!

This boot is yummy. Soft, sumptuous leather and a comfortable fit from the get go. Looks great with tights and skirts and dresses.

This is the third pair of Taryn Rose for me! I love these shoes! Well worth the price! I tell people about Zappos all the time!

I know it is a moto-style boot but it is very heavy and rather clunky - at least for my taste. I also found the boot seemed rather wide in the instep but very narrow in the toe box. It just had an odd fit and look on my foot. Ordinarily I am a big GS fan so will keep looking for a softer style to come out.

This shoe was very comfortable, possibly a tad big. But my narrow heel was secure and my wide foot conformable. I was just not thrilled with the overall style, very square front. I hope I do not regret my decision to return.

These shoes are great for anyone with bunions. They are very soft and do not cut or pinch. I wear orthotics so I don't need the shoe to have support. I have them in 3 colors and wear them with everything from jeans to dresses. Would I prefer a sexy high heel? Obviously, but I can't wear them anymore, so I don't understand someone criticizing these shoes because they weren't stylish enough. Return them if you don't like them.

These are singularly the best shoes ever made. Mine are worn out and I even lent them to my daughter, who ended up getting her own pair, because her work kept her on her feet all day (teaching). Now I come to buy my replacement. Love that they are in silver, so I am planning on buying both colors -- and no size 11!? What happened? Zappos is usually a one-stop shop for my large, narrow size! I need to see my therapist now!

These shoes are great! The sort of sparkley fabric is different and interesting without being glitzy. They are very comfortable for ballet flats and I have had no trouble with the heel strap sliding off as per some other reviews.

I felt a little rubbing on the upper heel area, so I understand the customer who said this shoe gave her blisters. However, I was able to remedy the situation with some stick-on heel cushions, also purchased from Zappos. They stay put and took care of the problem. Like clothes, I have learned with shoes that "ready-to-wear" really means "ready to be altered." I also wear arch supports in these shoes, and I had to size down from an 8 to a 7.5.

I wanted to like these shoes as I've been looking for a black bootie for a while. I have other pairs of Gentle Souls and the lack of arch support doesn't bother me in them; these, however, just hit the arch in the wrong place for me. They also look a little more casual in person than I expected.
