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 absolutely love these shoes. They are so comfortable right out of the box. I had to go down a half size, as my regular size was too large. They are stylish and look cute with pants *and* skirts/dresses. Very versatile and will be great for travel. As for the zippers, yes they can be a little stiff, but I have no problem getting my feet into the shoes without even using the zipper. The sole has a nice, sturdy tread, and the leather is incredibly soft. Highly recommend.

I wish they didn’t flop on my feet, and I don’t have narrow heels. The length was fine, but I marked they felt too large because they are so wide in the heel area. The inside lining felt wonderful, but I have to love them for this price. They are going back.

Fits true to size. Very comfortable. I have been wearing them around the house to break them in before my vacation and they feel great. A nice neutral for everyday wear.

I have this style in black and light brown. Gentle souls is among my favorite brands. This style is a comfortable shoe with slight wedge that dresses them up slightly, but also look casual with a pair of jeans. Gentle souls leather is soft, which means they don’t maintain in the elements well, but do feel so nice against the skin. No blisters. I have pairs that I set aside to keep nice for work functions, others that I wear day to day. That can be said of my shoes in general though. To have an option for a nice looking comfort shoe - awesome.

I bought this exact shoe several years ago when it first came out and was much more expensive. I knew this was not a glam boot but rugged and comfortable with a moto look. I bought the shoe againbecause the price was a lot lower and I had loved those first boots so much. I wore them day in and out for two years. This second pair (as is so often the case) were not as good as the original. The footbed was not the flax comfort of the originals. They were cut slightly differently at the side and were not as soft to touch. I bought them this second time for the supreme comfort of the first shoes and it just wasn't there. I compared them to the original boots, which I still have, and they were similar in all other respects. Too bad. Back to Zappos. Thank gooodness for hassle free returns.

These are super cute. But when I tried them on, the stitching on the inside was really sharp. So sharp I came to the conclusion that I would never be able to break them in. I considered buying some moleskin, but these shoes are $189, and I really feel like I shouldn't have to alter them to make them comfortable.

So, I ordered down a half a size as recommended by the other reviews. Big mistake. My normal size would have probably been perfect. I was so disappointed because these are super cute. I ordered three different pairs of similar shoes. I need them now, so no time to exchange. I ordered this pair, Naturalizer, and ecco. I kept the ecco as they were the most comfortable and felt true to size.

I bought these in the pewter and really like the way they look. They provide a nice pop of contrast with bootcut jeans and a black sweater. They’re almost metallic but not quite which is a good thing (I think that would just make them look cheap and tacky and they are anything but). My only complaint is that the zippers on my pair are quite stiff which makes it frustrating getting them on. Hopefully, this will change over time with use. The comfort and support, of course, is always first rate with this line which makes it great for women like me who want to wear stylish shoes with height but not be in constant pain.

This is my favorite shoe EVER. It feels like wearing a sock, leaving your foot completely free and natural, but protected from the elements. It is so cute, too! It fits true to size. Since they've run out of leather, I've added a suede pair for dress occasions to my wardrobe. I hope the manufacturer brings this style back, or at least continues to offer this sort of barefoot feeling in a go-everywhere shoe.

They fit great. And I adore platforms. But...they look a bit like flip flops on. Something about the style makes them look off. It’s not terrible but I’m not in love with these.

I wish I could keep these, but they're just a bit too wide for me so they slip some. They are beautiful soft leather/suede on the outside -- a great taupe color -- and you only need one zipper to get in -- love that. The inside is heavily padded with great arch support (a requirement of mine) so if they fit you, you'll feel totally enveloped and supported by the padding! Another slight thing -- the front/top of the shoe comes right up and touches my ankle on top -- it doesn't rub, but feels almost like it will rub. Don't care for that. I might make do otherwise and keep them, slipping around or not. But I won't take a chance on the way the top of the shoe touches my ankle. Might work fine; might not. Darn.

I have a very flat and very narrow foot, and had never worn this brand before, so bought it in two sizes, 7.5 and 8, medium, in the gold metallic suede. Unfortunately, it was just too wide, both in the heel and the toe, and my foot just slid in it, even with my orthotics in (which I wear in all shoes, even dress shoes). The sole was comfy, however, and there did seem to be some arch support (even without my orthotics). Too big drawbacks, however, were that I was totally unable to buckle the ankle strap, as I just could not get the metal prong into the last hole (I would have had to have some more holes punched, even at that), and the color is really kind of awful - sort of an orangey gold, as if the shoe had had a bad spray tan. I might have considered trying to make the shoe work, in a 7.5 in the black, but for the problem with the ankle strap.

I liked everything about them except they weren't as warm as I'd hoped. I have a problem with heel pain and these didn't have enough cushion. Guess I'll have to find something with foam soles. Shoot!

I absolutely LOVE these boots! They are so warm and comfortable! I do fold down the fur in front and they look great with leggings! Only one negative, if you wear them with socks, the sock falls off your heel. If you wear them in bare feet, your feet turn black from the dyed fur.
