Too wide! Length OK! Not as cute as pictured. I thought the finish would be more fabric looking with less sheen.

The toe box was ample, the straps were not to tight (high arches and instep) the zipper did not bother my heel. I am returning them because the area around my heel was to big and gapped a lot. I found the length to be spot on!

I have a lot of trouble finding comfortable shoes, let alone shoes with heels. The name Gentle Souls does not do them justice. I love these shoes. They are so comfortable. In fact they are so comfortable that I can walk in them all day. I do not even think that I have flats or sneakers I can say that about! They are a pricier than what I usually spend on sandals/wedges but they are worth every extra dollar. I am heading to Europe for vacation in a week and I am bring these not only for style but because I can wear them all day sightseeing.

Beautiful shoes! I was so impressed to take these out of the box. The pictures really don't do them justice. The black leather has a slightly brushed look to it and is very rich in color. The lines of this shoe are very clean and modern. They are really well made. The deerskin footbed is super soft, straps are soft, and the pitch forward is minimal, making these comfortable to stand in. One thing to be aware of, though, is that the wedge is rock hard and somewhat heavy- there is no flexibility or give to the sole. I would not be able to walk all day in these shoes. That's why I could only give 4 stars for comfort. Overall a fantastic shoe!

The shoes are extremely comfortable. The leather is soft and doesn't cause blisters. I would give the craftsmanship a B- since you can see in the product photo that the wood veneer they wraps the wedge and meets in an imperfectly matched, visible seam.

Another reviewer had mentioned that there is a weird gapping that happens in the very back of this shoe. I should have heeded that. Other than that, they're quite comfortable, and maybe just barely riding that line between cute comfort and bordering on a bit dowdy. I did not fall in love, but would have definitely kept them if not for the back strap that does a weird folding/gap thing that is difficult to explain, but which compromises the fitted line of the shoe. In profile is where you notice it. It seems that the back mid-strap is just cut too long, and it doubles over unattractively. I'm tall and my legs are long, but having a higher rise to the ankle didn't circumvent the issue, if that helps at all!

I really wanted to love these shoes! Beautifully crafted, lightweight, very supportive but they just didn't feel supportive enough in the arches and around my narrow foot. Would also have preferred a darker brown, compared to this taupe color. Thank you!

I love these! They are just as comfortable as they are cute, which is not something easy to find. I tried the 7 and 7.5 after I read that they may be too large, but these fit true to size for me (7.5). Being able to tie them, and choose their tightness is also a big plus.

The leather was discolored and worn in parts. The right shoe was stretched out and seemed larger than the left shoe which appeared brand new as packaged. They were comfortable but they were also too big in back and ends of toes stuck out from front of shoe. Seams on side looked uneven. Didn't look worth the money.

I love these shoes! They are so comfortable. Unfortunately the orange does not match anything in my wardrobe. I will order the black instead.

I have size 5 feet, and I ordered this in a 5.5. It fit perfect -- it doesn't have a lot of arch support; however, it is still fairly comfortable. I put in a pair of gel inserts for good measure. I don't think you can walk around these non-stop for 8 hours (I tried -- didn't kill my feet but they weren't too happy, either), but I've worn it at my desk job and they're very comfortable, and the color and heel gives a petite girl like me some illusion of height without all the clumsiness of a stiletto. I've gotten a lot of compliments on it too.

Exceeded all expectations! I was attracted by the teal color, but deterred by the price. My husband then ordered them as a birthday gift. When they arrived the color was breathtaking! They cover enough of the foot to wear to work - a "shoe" in terms of dress code -- acceptable, vs. "sandal" -- not acceptable -- and completely comfortable from day one! I get so many comments every time I wear them. It turned out that one of the shoes was defective. Megan C. at online chat could not have been more gracious about exchanging and refunded the difference as this style was by then marked down! I had my replacement in 2 days! A great experience all around.

I absolutely love this shoe, so much that this is the second pair I've purchased in less than 2 weeks. I need a backup pair for whenever my first pair wears out. It's like walking on air, the fit and style are perfect, and the quality excellent. Although they're expensive, it's well worth the price.

Absolutely love these. Most comfortable sandal I have ever had and they are incredibly cute. Excellent for walking the city for hours. First day the leather was a little right around toe opening and I am so glad I didn't return them!

Wonderful and comfy shoes. My only downside is I have wide feet the the actual sole of the shoe is a bit small, but the shoe isn't. This causes the leather to get a bit scuffed on the bottom of the outside of the shoe, which doesn't show when I walk, but makes me worry. Othewise these shoes are fabulous, look great and I wear them all the time. Wish they made a wide version that might take care of the problem.

I love this shoe and have received compliments galore. I am on my feet all day, retail you see, so comfort, unique style and a little height are so important. I got black and am thinking about the tan or another neutral color. The adjustable tie closure allows for a custom fit!

Many reviews mentioned sizing up, but this didn't work for me. I ordered this shoe in both a 7 and a 7.5, and the 7.5 was too large. The pair that I kept was also a different color, but if I end up loving these shoes, I might order the black in a 7. My initial impression is that these shoes are wonderfully padded. I've had other Gentle Souls shoes, and I really love the way the elastic bands secure the shoes to your feet.

I loved these shoes. I wanted them to work, but like some of the other reviewers the back strap would not stay on. Every 6 or 7 steps in my house and I would have to push the straps back up. Back they go.

I thought these would have a more noticeable lift, but they look like flats. The toe is a little bit narrow, and although they do feel buttery they have side support that digs into my pretty flat feet. Another reviewer commented that they look more appropriate for a woman over 50 and I have to agree.
