I was loathe to spend this much money on a pair of flats, but I walk a lot and am starting to feel too old and sloppy wearing sneakers all the time. So these shoes are worth the investment. Best of all is the fit: with the straps they stay on my foot which has a narrow heel but they are wide enough in the front for my bunion. Plus they are cute and feminine. Recommended.

Sorry - but no! I bought these really cute shoes to wear on a trip to NYC. Since I was going to be doing so much walking, I thought these would be super comfy. My feet are now covered in blisters that are still killing me where the leather rubbed and irritated. Yes, I did have on light socks. These are going into the trash bin - live and learn.

Perfect travel shoes! Look cute with jeggings and skirts. Wore them to New Orleans and walked all day, wore them to Pilates, lunch, casual dinners, the airport. No break-in necessary. Compliments a couple of times. You won't regret this purchase. Has a good amount of arch support, too. True to size.

Arguably, one of the most expensive flats I\'ve purchased, but well worth the splurge. They are perfect in every way. Soft soft soft!...from the footbed to the leather upper...even the elastic straps are just right - snug enough to keep the shoe securely on the foot, but not so tight as to cause pain or red marks after a few hours of wear. There isn\'t much arch support as with most flats, but these feel surprisingly good even after a long (6-8hr) workday of mostly standing and walking. I am truly amazed at the comfort of these shoes...and they\'re actually NOT dowdy looking! I am going to invest in more of Gentle Souls most definitely.

I'd also recommend: Camper, Flexx, Born, Clarks

Comfort fit and funky look - I just love these shoes. The softest leather I've ever found & super comfortable. I keep them in my brief case - they look great w/ black tights and a suit. The cross straps eliminate any pressure points.

Super cute shoe, but I didn't like how I could feel the top of the shoe with my big toe, and you could see my big toe poking up through the top of the shoe. The material's a bit thin.
