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.

I loved these shoes. I bought these in black suede and wish you still carried the black suede as they are adorable and very stylish. I have a wide foot and it is very hard to find stylish and attractive shoes for a wider foot. Kenneth Cole is amazing.

I'm not a biker boot person. I prefer a riding boot or low heeled dress boot. But I love Gentle Souls shoes and this was the only boot they had that was not an ankle boot. Since everyone raved about it, I decided to just try it on. Oh my! This may be the most comfortable boot I have ever worn. It's flexible and cushy, and the shaft is very soft, but doesn't fall down. I had no problem tucking pants into these, although I do make sure they are slim pants and I tuck them into my socks. I normally wear a 9 in Gentle Souls, but they were out of size 9, so I tried a 9 1/2 and it was perfect with wool socks, which is probably how I'll wear it. If I want to wear tights or go barefoot, I'll put in a Dr. Scholl's arch insert, which takes up the extra room and gives great arch support. Unlike other Gentle Souls shoes, this boot does NOT have the flaxseed pillows, but a little foam rubber for the insole. The biker boot in rustic brown is growing on me. I think I could live in these. They feel like slippers.

I'm normally a size 9 in Gentle Souls, but the 9 felt a bit short. That could be because the heel feels higher than 2 1/2 inches so my foot slid forward. The upper is very stiff, so there was no give in the ankle. They looked nice, but were not anywhere near as comfortable as my other Gentle Souls, so they're going back.

More like pirate boots (on me), then a cool pair of Motos. Based on the reviews I was so excited to get these, but pure disappointment. The good: The boots arrived in 24 hours (love Zappos!), the leather is really soft, I liked the buckles and even the color of the buckles, they seem well made The bad: These boots for this price they better fit like a glove and these didn't. Even with the buckles buckled at its tightest point, they were so baggy around my calf and I have pretty good runners calves. I know moots are supposed to be slightly slouchy, but this was way too pirate like for me. I am normally a size 8 in Gentle Souls and other shoes and these were a 1/2 size to a full size too big. My heels definitely would slip - I would try the 7.5, but I just am not in love with the overall styling because of the oversized upper boot area. Also the toe seems really round, again giving this boot a costume pirate design (to me anyway). Thus they are going back...there has got to be a better Moto out there somewhere and I will find it.

I adore these and bought them in the turquoise suede this spring. I've worn them with pants, skirts, dresses spring and summer. They are exceptionally soft and do not rub, even though they have a peep toe, which is often very uncomfortable in most shoes. I wore these all over a big convention center the same week I bought them, no blisters, lots of compliments. I'm now thinking about getting them in another color (which I have never done with any other shoes).

These fit my "bad"; feet very well. My bunions necessitate the need for a wide toe box while my heels are a normal width. They were still slightly tight across the strap, but I stuffed them for a few weeks to stretch them out. This helped a little, and I believe they will stretch a little more when I wear them a few times. These shoes would be too wide for a normal size foot however. The built-in arch support feels funny now but is something that one should get used to. I have high hopes these will be my go-to shoes when on vacation.

I am so frustrated! This is a gorgeous boot. One problem: It says that the heel is 1 1/4", but it has a HIDDEN lift in the heel of the boot, making this a 2 1/2" heel in total. I need a fashionable low-heeled boot. I already have the Gentle Souls Soft Cast ankle boot from last season. It is only wearable for shorter periods as the heel is 2 1/2". I wanted this for a travel, so these boots will just not do. I have two pair of the Buckled Up (great boot,) but wanted something more sleek. Here is the description on the Gentle Souls site: "Gentle Souls Block Fierce A bootie with an edge that stands out, Block Fierce is a fitting name for this fashion forward style. The perfect ankle boot for the girl on the go who doesn't want to sacrifice style for comfort." It does not mention the hidden lift, a comfort sacrificer if I ever felt one. AND, most 12 year olds could not spend $325 for a boot, so, Gentle Souls marketing department, don't call your customers girls. This WOMAN is now doubly annoyed. Full disclosure, Gentle Souls! And don't insult me. Zappos, you are great, as always, and I do not hold you responsible for the improper description OR the Mad Men era language.

Wonderfully comfortable (the inside leather is like sliding into butter), and elegant. At the same time they could be worn as a more casual shoe with jeans. The elastic band hugs your foot, but isn't restrictive.

A very pretty sandal. It has the usual Gentle Souls comfort yet the sole is a bit thin for frequent wear. I will just have a shoe repair place add an 1/8 inch additional sole to just the heel. Worth it for the comfort this line of shoes offers. I have found that all Gentle Souls run a 1/2 size large so I order 1/2 size down from what I usually wear and every time it has been perfect.

I really wanted to love these shoes. They are adorable and I thought they'd be perfect for my problem feet. I finally just made the decision and ordered the pair. Well, they didn't work at all for me. They were uncomfortable across the toe, there wasn't much support, and the stitching was irregular. Now, if I paid $30 for them, I would not be complaining about stiff elastic and wrinkled stitching, but for this price, I expect more. I will not try this brand again. I do have wide feet with very high arches, but the quality issues have nothing to with the shape of my feet.

These are the most comfy stylish shoes! I am between 7 1/2 and 8 and the 8 fits me perfectly. I love the color! I wouldn't call it dark taupe though. My legs are short and I am 61 so these do not look right with dress, but they are so chic with pants. I am going to stray with suede protector. Hope it works. That's the only thing I am worried about. I don't wear black...wish they would make a darker camel.

This is a great boot. Very comfortable and stylish. Unfortunately for me, the boot was a bit too small for my calves.

I thought my boot wearing days were over before finding these boots. What an answer to my prayers. I have fibromyalgia which translates into very sore knees and hips. I bought a pair of these boots two years ago in black and bought a Dr. Scholl's insert, the one where you stand on the machine barefoot and it tells you which insert is best for you. My life was changed and I could wear boots again! I own my own business and am constantly meeting with clients. These boots are very fashionable, lightweight, the leather is so soft I had no break in period, the footbed is luxurious which helps with shock absorption and takes stress off of my joints as in knees and hips, the calf circumference is large enough to accommodate my larger calves. I wear these boots everyday from fall though winter with my inserts and wool socks call FITS. Now I will have a brown pair to complete my wardrobe! I usually wear a size 7½ or 8. I bought a size 8 medium width and they are large enough to accommodate the inserts and wool socks. I could wear a 7½ otherwise and they will stretch a bit. Also, I have gotten so many compliments on them. They are not cheap but they do not look cheap either. I hope this helps someone who is boot challenged like I was. Thank you Lord for these boots!

Shoes arrived in not the usual way from Zappos. Shoes only wrapped (nicely however) in tissue. First thought was well, they were perhaps a return and that person threw away the stuffing from the shoes. Not so, the shoes looked fine, but were very stretched out in the toe box. Disappointing but my favorite shoe store, Zappos. I returned.

I LOVE these boots. They are extremely comfortable and my feet haven't felt bad in them yet (walking from car to office, to coffee, to office, all around office). I'm very very happy with this purchase

These shoes are absolutely wonderful. I bought as second pair right away. They look great with skirts and slacks and are like walking on a cloud. The upper is soft and maliable, covers the bunion area.
