Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole

Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole Logo
Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole has created a natural way to combine fashion, comfort and care for your feet. This revolutionary patent-pending technology uses the finest natural materials for organic comfort in their shoes and sandals.

Deerskin lining- Gentle Souls´ shoes uses supple and breathable deerskin-lined insoles providing softness and comfort while conforming to the shape of your foot. It is durable and will not stretch or crack when wet. Deerskin is normally found on gloves, jackets or shoe uppers. The deerskin-lined insole is unique to Gentle Souls shoes and sandals!

Flaxseed Memory Pillows- Flaxseed pillows are embedded in the footbed of Gentle Souls shoes to mold to the shape of your foot and provide cushioned support. The flaxseed ¨memory pillows¨ are somewhat similar to beanbags as they redistribute and adjust to the shape of your foot with every step.

Padding- Under the deerskin lining there is a memory foam developed by NASA; Poron®. This foam does not break down and maintains its shape over time.

Granulated Cork- This layer located under the Poron® helps with shock absorption when walking on hard surfaces.

Rubberized Outsole- Sometimes fused with leather, rubberized outsoles are flexible and great for traction on hard surfaces.

I SO wanted these to work. However, they were just wide enough that they were floppy on my feet.

Put the shoes on and fit perfectly. Run true to size. They are worth the money.

I’ve just received these and they are keepers. Casual but smart-looking, material feels great and I can see wearing them with sundresses as well as jeans.

I was so hopeful about these shoes based on the other reviews, but these weren't even close for me. I'm an 8 to 8 1/2 and originally ordered the 8 based on others' true to size assessment. They were huge. Almost 3/4 too long and over 1/2 inch of space all the way around for width. I re-ordered a 7 1/2 hoping a had a fluke of bad luck. My foot hit the ends in both the front and back (so the difference between a 7 1/2 and 8 wasn't normal), and it was still far too wide. If you have wide or even extra wide feet this might be a great options. Everyone else - proceed with caution. Too pricey to fit this poorly.

These shoes are so comfortable, the heel height is great and I like the ankle strap; however, they are a little wide for my instep but I am going to put a pad in the toes and keep them. They are well made. I am conteplating on ordering in another color. I highly recommend these shoes.

I think Gentle Souls is usually a really good choice for me and so I had great hopes for this pair.I ordered both the 8 and the 8.5. In other brands I wear a 9. I know from experience to order a 1/2 size smaller.Lately it has been my experience that shoes seem to be running a bit larger. Anyway the 8 fit but it really looked weird-it just looked too long and pointy. i didn't even open the 81/2 ---no reason to. Disappointed, but I still like the brand, too much good luck in the past.

Nice athleisure shoe. However, I could not wear the shoe with my custom insole. The elastic across the top made it too tight to wear the insole and the footbed was not removable. A larger size would have been too wide. I loved the look and versatility of the shoe but unfortunately had to return.

The shoe gave off a strong smell of toxic fumes. Plus on one side the fabric around the heel was more narrow than the other and cut into the inside of my foot.

I have a lot of trouble finding shoes that fit because I have a narrow heel but I need a lot of room in the toe box area. I can't wear shoes that don't lace up or have a secure strap over the top of the foot because I will walk right out of the heel. The problem is that most lace-ups and strapped shoes are clunky looking on my feet. These shoes are perfect. Plenty of room for my toes, the strap is secure and the little splash of white around the bottom gives them a sleek look. I usually wear a 7.5 and that's what I bought. The fit is right -- so good, in fact, that I bought two pairs. Just wish they came in other colors.

I'm always a 9 1/2 in Gentle Souls so these were true to size, except the black pair was too tight and I couldn't get my foot in it. The ice and rose gold both fit better. I'm spoiled by wearing Birkenstocks and I did not find these comfortable despite the cushy thing in the heel. HOWEVER, I agree with the other reviewer that THESE SHOES SMELL BAD. They smell like toxic chemicals. The smell was overwhelming.

They are comfortable, but a little wide and sloppy fitting. They are not as cute on as the very similar Aldo Ribrylla or the slightly dressier Massimo Matteo, so I returned them.

These shoes are too big all over...too long, too wide, too loose. I own more than a few pairs of Gentle Souls, so this was a total surprise and disappointment. Adjusting the strap didn't help. The leather is lovely and soft, the color is exactly what I was looking for, and the arch support was okay. I'm so sorry to have to return these.

The comfort level is excellent. The style is good. I would have preferred a lower front heel. This mushroom looks more soft pink nude but it’s more of a light mocha. It’s still looks nude but doesn’t have the hint if rose i expected. Keeping them and I love them. Got them in black too.

i almost kept these but decided that i liked the Kenneth Cole gentle souls Giselle better as it is a "drop" higher and a little more stylish. But this shoe is very nice and the suede is a very nice with a dressy look!

well THESE were the ones i loved best so i wore them to the gala event that i attended! they look great with slim bottom pants and probably with all pants and skirts! i wear a 6 1/2 in a closed shoe and a 6 in an open shoe so i tried both. they BOTH seemed to fit so i had to make a decision........i do not care when a sandal or an open shoe shows a lot of toe room so i chose the 6! they were just right and my toes did not even meet the edge of the foot bed. luuv the way they look!.

They fit perfectly. I usually wear a size 10 M, and that's what I ordered and they fit exactly as the should. I love them. They're comfortable, cute and well-made. Perfect!

I like the height and feel of this shoe, and it actually looked really cute in person with the crossed straps. This shoe almost worked for me, but my left toe rubbed a little weirdly on the top of the shoe, and the straps felt a little constricting on my ankles, and I have fairly slim ankles (in my opinion). I would need something in a bit of a wider width in the toe box and looser ankle straps. Also the zipper back on the left shoe was a bit hard to work, and the back of the shoe overall was a bit too high for my foot, sort of cutting me at the ankle. It's not really uncomfortable, but I don't see wearing them all day.

I love these shoes! Classic and simple, but so comfortable. The leather is high quality and soft. The shoes are sturdier than ballet flats, which I need for waking around the city.

Comfortable, but not particularly flattering or of high quality. If you've an average to wider foot the laces allow enough adjustment to be able to wear one's true size. The leather is very thin and in my opinion poor quality. I've had similar sandals that only last one season. Also, if you wear a larger size shoe, this style definitely makes one's foot look longer and bigger.

I found this sandal to be pure comfort! It feels a teeny bit wide through the toe box but overall true to size, well made, and great if you have to be on your feet all day.

The leather is buttery and the soles have nice tread, but I am returning these because they are way uncomfortable. My heels slip, but my toes and the front of my feet are squeezed to the point that it causes pain. I tried them on yesterday and again today and I just don't think they are proportioned right. Also, in the photo it looks like they have a slight heel, but in real life, they are basically flat.
