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.

These shoes were just too narrow across my instep to keep. Wish they'd fit better because the leather is so soft and the style classic.

These are some of the most comfortable boots I've ever owned. I tried them on after getting home in my old boots and immediately threw the old ones in the trash. I didn't realize how worn out they were until I put these on. The bottom of these shoes have memory foam and I feel great arch support. They also fit well around my ankle which I usually have trouble with since my ankles are thicket than most. So glad I got these!

Pretty disappointed with these boots... They weren't comfortable at all to me. Barely any padding and no arch support whatsoever. Also not a good choice if you have small calves like I do. As far as appearance goes, they don't look as stylish as in the pictures, and they came with a big crease on the side from packaging. I'll be returning them :(

These are soooooo comfy from the minute I put them on. Traveled and walked all day in them. No blisters! Not only no blisters but very easy to walk in and a very comfortable shoe! Stylish and a great buy.

These boots are extremely comfortable right out of the box, and fit perfectly (size 8.5 M). A couple of drawbacks style wise - the zipper pull is light brown leather, which stands out sharply against the black suede, and takes away from the overall look. Also, they are truly flat heeled, with almost no arch support. In general I prefer a small chunky heel. Despite all of that, they are truly comfortable, and look great overall, so I am keeping them.

I felt compelled to write a review after I went back to check if these came in other colors and saw the negative reviews. I have a Morton’s neuroma in my right foot. For those lucky enough not to know what that is, it’s an inflamed nerve between your toes. Walking on any hard surface is usually torture and finding shoes that are not ugly yet comfortable is a miracle. These shoes and this brand is my go to. Yes, they are expensive but so is the foot surgery. I found that the padding in these shoes works for me. They are pretty conventional in appearance without being boring. They don’t scream for attention. I can wear these with pants and dark socks or a skirt. Wore them to a Girl Scout event where I had to present and be on my feet for close to 8 hours - and survived. That, with the neuroma, is an achievement.

Love the style but much too wide. My foot is a true medium but I couldn't keep these shoes from slipping off. I have many gentle soul shoes, but never this problem. If you have a wide foot, this is a winner.

I wanted to love these shoes. They are warm, comfortable, and stylish. Unfortunately, the heel portion of the boot appears to be cut too loose. My heel slides up in the shoe when I walk. Otherwise the boot fits well, so I don't think a smaller size is going to fix the problem. Sadly, they are going back and my search continues.

I’m a size 8 med in all Merrell shoes and ordered an 8 med in this boot. Fit was good, but toe not as round and comfortable as I prefer. Also didn’t care for the grain of the leather...almost pebbled, way too casual. Other reviews praising the comfort of this boot are misleading. Padding is average, but way overrated. Padding in heel not enough for me. Heel strike was hard and miserable with each step, as the heel sole is a nonflexible material with no shock absorption. I have nerve entrapment in my neck and it was irritated within 10 seconds of test walking at home. I don’t agree that this is the most comfortable boot ever. My Merrell, BOC, and Timberland boots are much more comfortable and stylish. I bought SofComfort memory foam inserts for $7 which has better cushioning than the hyped up flax seed footing in this boot. Thanks to Zappos great return option, these are going back.

This shoe is lovely, but when I ordered my usual 8.5, it was too big on my foot. The pointy toe does not work well with my foot shape, so I am returning them for another shoe design. I love Gentle Souls. They are very comfortable. Just have to find the right shoe for me.

Most comfortable heel I have ever purchased. It is the one shoe that when I travel and have to figure out that one "heel" that will go with the dress and I can walk the city to get to dinner and stand at a cocktail party and my feet not kill me...but go with a lot, so I am not stuffing my one carry on bag with loads of shoes. This is the one. It has taken me to LA for a girls weekend & France for a wedding & NYC to dinner and walking....it is super neutral and comfortable. Works with jeans or dresses. I love it for the versatility and comfort. I tend to loosen the upper strap which helps with walking. I just bought my second pair. I can't say I have every purchased a shoe twice. Who has time for that? But, this one I am doing only b.c I have had this pair for a year and 1/2. It just needs a refresher!

Wish it fit, was uncomfortably narrow for my feet. I was hoping beyond hope to replace a favorite pair from years ago... Please explain to me, because I don't understand, why the strap loop is in tan on a black sandal.

Beautiful boots, but they do run narrow which is perfect for me. The suede morphs to leather on the toes and heels which should make them survive winter a little better.

It was half size larger. I usually wear 9, but it felt 9 1/2 and padding was showing.

These may be the most comfortable boots I’ve ever put on. And I didn’t mind the pebbly leather look. But I couldn’t keep them, because the tops are so wide they felt flappy. I have pretty slim legs, but here was so much leather around the top circumference they looked strange on me. I thought from the pics that the buckles could tighten the tops. But they were already fixed in the smallest position. Too bad.

These are one of exactly two pairs of shoes that are flat enough for my horrible feet yet offer a professional alternative to ballet flats. These are super cute, easy to wear, and I wish more shoes were built on this model!
