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.

Beautiful shoes, but they are really wide. I would not be able to walk too far outside with them. They slip off too easily. I'm keeping them for the office.

These are beautiful boots and I so wanted them to work for me. Alas, the instep is too tight, and the ankles rub. The leather is soft and the style is just what I was looking for...a mid-calf boot that's a little higher than the usual by a couple of inches, so good for taller people. They have to go back, but I would nevertheless recommend them to anyone who is more accustomed to narrower boots...probably I have worn Keens so long that I have to have that bigger toe box.

Great boots, lined with fur all over which not all brands do. Have cool look to it and super comfy. Unfortunately they run large and it’s the back of the shoe. Not sure if sizing down a full size will help.

I really wanted to have these. I loved the look and the comfort, but the heel slips out. I might order a 1/2 size smaller. Theses have to go back...

Huge fan of Gentle Souls. The leather is always so soft and comfortable - no break in time if you have any issues with your feet.

These boots are the best, smartest purchase I have made in a while. Beautiful soft upper, truly knee high shaft (important for me because I am tall- boots tend to hit me several inches below the knee). Additionally, the shaft's fit is snug (for once) which creates a sophisticated, streamlined look. Finally, you cannot beat the price of these boots! I am used to paying twice as much, for much less satisfaction with the product. I am a size 8 and the 8 fits perfectly. Love them!

I really like this boot. It is very comfortable and the ridges on the bottom offer good traction, even on damp or slippery ground. I find the style easy to wear with leggings or straight fitting jeans tucked in. The side zipper makes it easy to quickly put it on and off, which you will need to do at the airport due to the substantial hardware :). Like other reviewers I did find it difficult to determine the right size. This is odd, especially considering that I have owed, and worn, this boot in an 8 for the last several years. I usually wear a size 9. Last time I went with the size 8 because of the heal slippage issue but decided I should go up a size with the new pair because the length was feeling short. Almost got the 9 but remembered that they do stretch a bit. After wearing the 8.5 around the house I think it will be great with a medium sized sock. To me this boot seems to run about a half size large.

These are really stylish shoes with great leather and a sophisticated buckle..everything about them was perfect except they pinched too much around the ball of my foot...so i had to return. I felt it would always be an issue, even if I had them stretched. But if you don't have a wide foot, I highly recommend. Super good looking.

The boots are beautiful, love the style and the leather is buttery. But......felt tight around the top of my foot and loose around my heal. The quality of the boot is excellent, and I expected the comfort to reflect that, but my feet were not happy in these boots.

Really wanted to keep this shoe, as it felt like I was walking on clouds the moment I put them on. Good quality, nice comfortable little lift, cute shoes. But after a short while of walking around the house, they started feeling tight around the wider area below my toes. Wish they were slightly wider, or had less compression, but they should be OK for those with normal to slightly narrow feet. Will try this brand again.

I was a little hesitant to buy these boots because they were a bit pricey. When I opened them up I was pleasantly surprised by their stylish looks. I wore them around the house for a few hours contemplating whether to keep them or not. I was really searching for comfort and walking ability. I had a trip planned to go to NYC which involved walking around all day. I decided to keep them and am thinking they will be quite comfortable and stylish.

They are beautiful shoes but the 9, despite the lovely soft suede, cut into my big toes at the peep-toe and the 10 is far too big. Too bad they don't make a 9 1/2! NO arch support but could live with that for an evening.

I wanted to like these but they just didn’t fit my feet right, too narrow in the toe box and comfy file but too loose on top. Returned

The leather is soft, and the footbed is comfy. But the peeptoe rubbed my big toe raw in less than 15 seconds. I'm between a 9 and 9.5 and I ordered a 9.5, which was a hair long, but fit perfectly. But that peeptoe is a killer. They are going right back.

I find them to be super comfortable. No break in required. I keep putting them on, every day. The ankles are not tight, but rather loose - lending to a relaxed laid back look.

Absolutely no arch support. Toe box was a little tight but because the leather was so soft I imagine this wouldnt be an issue after breaking them in. The zipper in the heel was difficult to unzip, which was annoying because I wanted to avoid stretching out the straps. They were cute, but I returned them.

Super comfy, and they were a perfect transition from summer to fall, when I didn't want open toes. Gentle Souls are usually high on comfort, which for me is a #1 priority.

I wanted to love these boots. I have been looking at them for a long time but they slipped on my heel when I walked and the shape is less contoured than the photo would indicate. The shaft is rather stovepipe shaped. Likewise, the toe shape is not as attractive as the photo. It's almost like another boot.

I have difficult feet. I've had bunion surgery on my left foot, a bunion on my right foot, very high arches, suffered many stress fractures and broken toes, and plantar faciitis. That being said, it is extremely hard for me to find shoes that I can wear. I ordered this shoe with the thought I will have to stick an arch support in them. Today they arrived and are comfortable out of the box!!! I cannot wait to wear them and hope to order other colors soon.
