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. Although the size was spot on, the strap was too long for the shoe. It gapped. As much as I wanted to keep them, had to go back, as they were too pricey to not be perfect. If you have a long vamp they will probably work.

Love the style and 9.5M is a comfortable fit! My right foot is 9-3/4" long from heel to longest (2nd) toe, 3-3/4" wide at the widest point, and 2" at the widest part of my heel. The first time I wore them though, for about 4 hours, my pinkie toes on both feet rubbed a bit and I got some redness/beginnings of blisters, so I'll take preventative measures next time.

These shoes are beautifully made HOWEVER there is a serious problem with the toe strap. I ordered my size (8M) and could barely fit my toe into the strap, which caused my heel to hang off the back. So I ordered in an 8.5 M and again could barely fit my toe into the strap and no way could I walk in the shoe. It was even narrower than the size 8M, so they will be returned. What a shame!! What a waste of an otherwise good design and product!

I returned this shoe because it was way too big. I always wear a 7 1/2 but this was like an 8 on my feet. It is a very nice looking shoe and would be very comfortable in the right size.

I was a little hesitant ordering these shoes online but decided to give it a try. I was so happy with the shoes - they are extremely comfortable, look great and give me added height without an uncomfortable heel. I would definitely order them again. I ordered the black but am thinking about getting the other color too. Great shoes!!!!

These look very strange on. They are narrow on the footbed, yet somehow loose across the top. The toe was also too narrow. Overall, a very bizarre fit for my size 7 feet.

First, I love Gentle Souls and the style and color (Dusty Grey) of these shoes. They are also extremely comfortable. However, I agree with several of the reviewers regarding the gap between one strap and your foot. No matter how you adjust the buckle, there is still a gap which looks odd. Unfortunately, I will be returning these shoes.

I love these shoes! I bought them to wear to a wedding. Note: due to foot surgery on my left foot, I could only wear the right shoe (so far). The fit is excellent for my narrow heel and wide forefoot. The cushioning was great. I wore these all day and into the night, and even danced, with my pretty shoe on the right and my orthopedic boot on the left. The small heel was a perfect match in height for the ortho boot, and will still be just right when I’m able to wear both shoes together. These are beautiful, elegant shoes, they look and feel expensive and are worth every penny. One small gripe is the fastener is difficult. Sit near a bright light so you can see what you’re doing. Other than that, take a chance on these lovely heels!

I was looking for a comfortable everyday ankle boot. I can usually wear 7M in Gentle Souls and have several pairs in other styles, but this cute bootie was just too tight and narrow on my foot. Perhaps sizing up would work but the width might still be a problem.

I love Gentle Souls. I have a flat foot and these are perfect. Just enough of a heel to give me a little boost in height but looked really cute with a long dress as well as some cropped dress slacks. I did purchase an 8 when I normally wear a 7.5. I knew I would be doing a lot of walking in them and 8 was a better way to go.

These shoes have a nice angle to the heel that isn't obvious in the picture which makes them more stylish and the heel height and sole are very comfortable and well designed. They would look great dressed up or dressed down. The toe however is the deal breaker. It's hard, the edges rub your feet and there isn't any 'give' around your toes. I returned them, very sadly

this is my perfect daytime shoe. i always prefer a d'orsay which is typically foot flattering, as is the entire shape of this shoe. the heel has height, but is wide and stable. the front part is comfortably wide and nicely padded. i purchased multiple colors and can't wait to wear them with a slightly wider leg and shorter jean. thank you, GS.

So these shoes are okaaaaaay. They are cute for sure, and the length is fine, but the toe box is oddly shaped and not comfortable, managing to feel boxy and tight at the same time. I also noticed that the front “lip” of the sole catches on things. I bought them early for a trip to Europe so I could break them in a bit, and I’m hopeful that the leather with stretch before my trip. My goal with them was a dressier alternative to my Merrells and I remain unconvinced but hopeful.

Luca Lace-Up Sneaker

Sometimes leather sneakers are stiff, but not these ones. The upper is supple. I like that the lining is leather as is the surface of the foot bed. The shape is streamlined with no extra bulk. The description indicates a round toe but that is misleading. The toe is tapered which makes for a sleek look. The insole is padded but this is a thin-soled shoe so although it feels soft, it is not super cushioned like a true athletic shoes. I bought these in black. Although this is a comfort shoe brand, these sneakers are not remotely orthopedic-looking. Initially I bought my regular size and found the style to run a bit short so, I reordered a half size larger which fits well. This is not a wide shoe, but there is sufficient volume to accommodate a high instep.

This shoe is amazingly comfortable! I love the look as well and think it will go with all kinds of outfits, casual and dressier. I'm a little concerned that the width may stretch in the future, but for now the shoes fit perfectly. A little more than I usually spend, but I think I will get a lot of wear from them.
