Very pretty shoe and very lightweight. The cork color is pinkish and would look good against tan skin or skin with pink undertones. Does not look good against untanned skin -- guess how I know? For me this shoe ran 1/2 size larger than expected. I almost always wear a nine but this shoe was quite long. Also, it might be good on a rather wide foot. There's plenty of leather to cover the foot. My feet are narrow-ish and the straps closed completely over my foot when I tightened the laces. Very comfortable. The design gives structure to a light as air shoe.

So cute and comfortable. Unfortunately my ankles swell to much by the end of the day to wear elastic ankle straps that are a bit too tight!

Fantastic shoes. I'm so glad to find a sandal that won't give crazy tan lines -- or any! -- and that's this comfortable. I'm about to take them for two weeks in Europe, and I'm feeling good about their value. So far very worth the price! In terms of size, I'm usually a 6.5 and went for 7. Perfect.

Extremely comfortable shoe. Great for a casual look with shorts, skirts, jeans. Runs large. I normally take a 10.5-11 so I ordered the 11. Exchanged it for a 10 then exchanged it for a 9.5.

Great looking shoes, but not for me. If the strap were around the ankle like the Lily Moon, they would stay on my feet. Love the look, but can't walk in them.

Adorable! These sandals are so comfortable, and are much cuter in person. I got the gold color and it's perfect. I am between a size 6.5 and a 7, and the 6.5 fits perfectly.

Attractive, comfortable sandals with elastic straps that contour to every foot. They have a thin sole and no arch support so I personally could not walk in them all day but they are perfect for around town or a casual evening out. The straps are wide and the shoe is attractive but not elegant, but I really like them and got them in navy and black.

I have two other pairs of Gentle Souls and I love them. In my past experience they have always been worth the price. Not so this time around... 1. While very comfortable (as always with Gentle Souls) the cushion on the foot-bed made a farting sound with every step I took! I thought it might go away with a few hours of walking around the house, but nope. Every single step. 2. I think they run large. Both of my other Gentle Souls shoes (a pair of 2.5-inch heel boots and a wedge sandal) fit like a glove at 8.5. So I bought these in 8.5 but I could already feel my foot slipping too far forward on the foot-bed. Any stretch of the leather upper and my toes would be hanging over the edge. 3. Purely aesthetically, I felt that the leather upper came up just 3/4 inches too high on the arch of my foot. Not uncomfortable, but made the shoe look clunkier than I would have liked, especially considering I always think of GS shoes as having such graceful design. Not so with these ones. Also I wonder if the unnecessary coverage would lead to unnecessary sweating at the height of summer? So, overall well made, but not worth the price. I will be sending them back until something better comes along.

Absolutely beautiful shoes, but the front area is way too large for a narrow foot, leaving a huge gap: impossible to wear. Alas!

I wear these shoes to work, with slacks and they are very cute and go with any color. They are super comfortable with decent arch support. This is a pair of shoes that I know I will wear until they fall apart.

I have 2 pairs of this great sandal. But newest version has slightly different spacing on inside left shoe. So it's not comfortable at all. Very sad.

Love these shoes! They feel like butter inside. I wore them for the first time to my daughter's wedding, danced all night, and never had a problem with my feet. My feet are very sensitive, also have plantar fasciitis, but they were very happy in these shoes.

I purchased a pair of these for the summer, as someone living in New York City I walk a lot, and flip flops don't cut it. These seemed cute, modern and work-appropriate, plus the idea that they would be comfortable was an added bonus. After two weeks, the entire shoe has completely separated from its footbed. It is now full sandal season and Kenneth Cole wants me to send them back to then - on my dime - to see if they were defective. Um... $195 shoes should NOT BREAK after two weeks. They way they word it their response it is up to them to determine if they will fix it or if shoes BREAKING AFTER TWO WEEKS is my fault. Insane. I guess walking was a little much for the shoes. Since I already spent a fortune on two pairs (I bought a different pair that lasted a full month before I needed to send it in to Kenneth Cole, three weeks with no resolution) I am not out a lot of money and have NO SHOES. Don't spend money on these, buy from any other manufacturer. These are cute garbage.

Comfortable, good looking, fits very well! Love this brand of shoe. I have arthritis in one foot and cannot wear heels! These are dressy enough with many outfits!

I have always loved Gentle Souls, but what a disappointment these are. The foot bed is rock hard and does not fit well on my foot - I tried two sizes. The style is adorable, so sad I have to return them.

These weren't a good fit for my foot shape. I have a narrow heel and wide forefoot. My foot was slipping out of the back but my toes felt very squished. These also had a strong smell coming out of the box which was odd. Overall, these seemed like a comfort shoe produced by a mass brand (which is of course what they are) rather than a quality comfort brand.

These are the perfect size 6.5. Not too long, not too short. The lace up style ensures you can fit them just right. I often find 7s too loose but the right length, and 6s too short but the right fit with straps. I can't tell you how many sandals I've sent back to Zappos for this reason, and these finally got it right. They are lightweight with just enough padding to feel comfortable. I got the gold and they are a great neutral, more like tan with some gold flakes. The sparkly laces were a little scratchy, but they included plain laces as well which are great. The plain laces are a little slippery, so i tie a double knot to ensure they won't come loose during the day. An easy fix in the hunt for the perfect sandal. I personally justify the price by saying this one sandal is worth 2 pairs of sandals both dressy and casual, if you need help with the price tag. (But I might forget this by the next time I'm looking for sandals!)

I had such high hopes for these shoes. They looked so comfortable and chic. When they arrived, the initial try on seemed perfect. I wore them out that afternoon and within 20 minutes, the leather over the toes was cutting into my skin. When I removed the shoes, my feet were also stained with black. After reading all the reviews, I am surprised by how uncomfortable they are, and leather rubbing off was the icing on the cake. Hopefully they will stretch out after awhile but I will not be putting them back on my poor feet anytime soon. They are not as great as the reviews are promoting.

So crazy comfortable. I read a review that worried or complained about the heel height, but I need a bit of a heel - true flats are not helpful to my feet, so these are great. There is no extra pressure on the balls of the feet because they are still relatively flat. I did need a 7 1/2 when I'm usually a 7. They are attractive but not sexy. I bought these to wear at a part time job where I am on my feet for hours at a time, and they are great. I'm a fashion conscious woman in my late 40's, by the way.

So comfortable! I have very difficult feet to fit. These flats slipped right on, and I wore them for several hours in a great deal of comfort. They were so easy to wear.

Beautiful shoe! I love the style, the workmanship and leather lining. The buckle is perfect. If only the toe box was not so narrow... Please carry this style in a wide width. For this reason I regretfully have to return this pair.
