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.

Marvelous shoes. So very comfortable. And doesn't feel high at all although you stand much taller. Very flattering and very stylish. Wish they came in more colors. I bought black and beige. Would wear every day if I could. They dress up and dress down. Perfect shoe. I was afraid they were "too young and hip" for me but they are just right.

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.

So, yes, these shoes are cute as hell. And pretty comfortable, though narrow and a bit delicate to walk briskly in...my biggest complaint is the quality of the leather. It's so soft that it's fragile and delicate, so after one season (wearing them once or twice a week) there were huge gouges in the leather, and by the end of next season the vamp had separated from the platform and now they are totally unwearable. I buy a lot of sexy comfort shoes (Born and Clark's and Kork-ease) and I've never been so bummed about a pair of shoes wearing out so fast. Wish these reviews were written more after a few months of wear than after ten minutes!

These are my trendy purchase for fall. I have never been a fan of camo clothing outside of hunting camp and the military however these are very tastefully done and quite comfortable. I am sure my husband will get a chuckle when he sees me wearing them since he has to listen to me drone on about camo bling-bling! I also got them in leopard which are way out of my comfort zone. I figure if I am going to go trendy I will do it with a great brand that I wear a lot. As far as fit - they are a bit tight getting them on but feel like a glove once you slip your foot into them.

I love this shoe. I am about to order my third pair, this time in textured black. The pewter color is also amazing as is the orange sherbet. Oddly, I haven't had any problems with the strap whereas, I can't wear a slingback in any other shoe. I have bunions and a lower back issue and these shoes are the most comfortable shoes that I own. I may only buy this style from now on. More colors please!

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!

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

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.
