I am so in love with these shoes! I\'ve been very much on the hunt for comfortable walking shoes that don\'t look, well, like walking shoes. These are perfect. They are so cute but then putting them on is like walking around on pillows. I got them in a full size smaller than I normally wear (I\'m a consistent 10 and mine are a 9) and they\'re just lovely. I can\'t speak to how they\'ll wear out as I just got them but their beauty, comfort, and chicness are undeniable!

I have very difficult feet and these shoes are amazing. Because of the lacing you can tighten where you need it (for me, little ankles) and loosen where you need it (for me, history of surgery on my forefoot). Super comfy, no arch support really but soft foot bed, and cute to boot.

These shoes have everything! In addition to being really cute and fun, they are so comfortable. Every time I wear them I get compliments from perfect strangers. The best, however, is the comfort. The padded soles enable me to walk or stand all day in complete blissful comfort. I have narrow feet, and the adjustable ties make the fit perfect. I don't want to buy any more shoes without padded insoles. I am so happy stylish ones now can be found.

This sandal is so comfortable and beautiful that I wish I looked good in it. I\'ve got short legs with defined muscle tone and alas, I look even shorter with the ankle style and the dark color. My fault. Sadly I\'m returning this pair. Opted for a different gladiator pair in bronze that blends in with my skin tone.

Love this sandal. It's beautiful and the color (lavender) is just lovely. Not as much arch support, or is it heel, anyway, not as much as I'd expected (or hoped), so I feel it when walking a lot (or long distances) in these sandals. Also, every time I walk a lot in them I get blisters on the bottoms of my feet, both feet, up at the top, underneath the toes. So I now wear them for just moderate walking. They sure are cute, very expensive, but cute! And considering how many sandals I've tried, these are definitely among the most comfortable.

I wear a 7.5 in GS closed toe shoes (Bay Unique and Gabby) to accommodate my wide big toe, but 7 is the right size in this sandal. I have a narrow foot, and these work so well for me because I can tighten them down enough that they stay on and my feet don't slip around in them. I find almost all shoes uncomfortable, because of the configuration of my feet, but all my GS souls are wonderfully comfortable, and I consider them well worth the price. I've been looking at these shoes for years, but could never find a color that worked for me, although I did figure out the sizing by trying and returning unsuitable colors. I've also been looking for years for silver shoes that didn't kill my feet (silver's a good neutral for me), so when these turned up in silver I jumped on it. I liked these shoes so much that it even lessened the sting of them going on sale for less about a week after the sale price refund policy expired!

Wow! These shoes look amazing on. I was stopped twice the first day I wore them by people asking where I bought them. I liked them so much I bought a brightly-colored pair for my teen who loves them as much as I do. Bonus 1: because of these lace all the way up, these sandals are accommodating to a wide range of food widths. Bonus 2: they were comfortable right out of the box; the suede is buttery smooth and flexible. I wore them all day the first time I wore them, with no discomfort. Bonus 3: the box these come in is amazingly sturdy in case you have a student who needs to make a diorama.

I adore these shoes and wear them every chance I get. My feet are a bit wide, so the adjustable ties are nice, and my arches are super high but I have no problem wearing these darling, stylish shoes all day long. I really really love them and am now shopping for more Gentle Souls shoes.

I've admired this sandal for some time - have even seen it in a few catalogs and I finally decided to try it. I feared that with a fairly flat footbed it would be uncomfortable - not so! It's padded in both the heel and ball of the foot, and the leather is like butter. So soft. And with a narrow heel, I have difficulty with sandals... not so here! This shoe is so cute and so comfy. In love! I'm also in love with Zappos. You guys rock!

I'm an 8 1/2 in Clarks and an 8 1/2 in Gentle Souls and the 8 1/2 fit perfectly. It's soft and fit well. Now the downside. There's no arch support and my little toes felt weird against the straps, like they were about to poke out the side of the shoe. The worst part, though, was that my feet looked like sausage casings in these sandals, and I'm pretty thin. Part of the problem was that most of the top of the shoe was just the lacing back and forth, and the neat curvy design was just on the sides of my feet. I guess I was expecting the shoe design to come up over the top of my foot more.

I agree with the other reviewers who said these sandals were soft and comfortable, but I ordered them for an upcoming vacation that will involve a lot of walking -- and I hate the look running shoes - but I felt that the sole was just too thin and flimsy and that the sandals were not worth their high price. I loved the idea of a memory foam sole, but it was so thin that it didn't offer much padding.

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.

These are no ordinary flats! The minute you slide into them, you can't believe they're flats, so much cushion. Definitely worth the cost.

These shoes are both comfortable and eye-catching. The suede is super soft and fits really well over the bunion on my left foot. I was expecting the soles to be a little thicker (I walk everywhere) but it's surprisingly cushioned and comfy. These shoes are resilient too! I wore them to a few concerts where they got a bit wet and you can't tell. Definitely a great investment...and as always Zappos was wonderful!

Can I just say perfection in a sandal? These are the sandals I'd been looking for over the past year plus. A little pricier than I wanted to spend but from the moment they went on, I was happy with their comfort, support and most of all their look in terms of style and color. My boss even commented on them when I popped into to the office to pick up some files. This is my second Gentle Souls pair of shoes and they really are quality footwear. At any rate, you won't be disappointed.

Love these shoes! So amazingly comfortable and they are cute too (I wear Anthropologie almost exclusively and these shoes go with almost everything I own!). My "go-to" pair for sure. My feet are narrow and these fit great because of the lace-up feature. Highly recommend!

These are keepers for me, even with my narrow feet. They lace up, so you can adjust the width. I had to return the other style ("Quick Break") because it was too wide, but no such problem with "Break My Heart." Nice soft leather and very cute.
