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!

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 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.

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

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.
