I absolutely love the shoes. The black leather is so soft. I actually purchased the mushroom color as well and really want to get an extra pair of black, but can't quite justify a third pair. These are exactly what I have been looking for - great with jeans, dresses, pants. They are perfect.

I really, really like these boots. I've been searching for a style like this for quite some time; not too tall, not too short, not too chunky, not too 'motorcycle-y'. These fit the bill completely. The only thing I'd say as far as fit, is that you must have NARROW feet to wear these. Narrow. My feet are average/narrow, and I was actually worried at first about the comfort. My feet are not remotely wide and these felt a little...smushed in the toe box. The heel is fine, but the toe box is truly narrow. Length-wise, they were perfect, as I'm a solid size 9 and that's what I ordered. I think I've worn a 9.5 twice in my life, so if you're a 9 or veer into 9.5 territory on occasion, these will work. IF your feet are narrow. Other than that, the leather is soft and the boots feel very well made. These aren't heavy boots, but they feel substantial. Sidebar: I broke my foot 4 weeks before buying these (so one foot is still pretty sore) and these are still comfortable, if that's any indication of the quality.

These are absolutely beautiful boots; however, even though I ordered one size up, they were too snug, both in length and width. The seam across the toe area makes the width even more problematic. While I really want these, unless I can find them in a wide size and at least one and a half sizes larger, I could not wear them. They are outstanding quality and anyone with a narrow foot would be making a mistake not to own a pair.

So, so, so comfortable I bought it both colors. Seems maybe a touch wide, but that's comfortable for me. Easy to walk in, good height and support from the block heel. Glove leather interior. Goes with pants and skirts. These are the shoes I reach for when I don't feel like wearing shoes to work.

I so wanted to love these boots, but they were not a good fit for me. They are very narrow in the forefoot area, but oddly looser than expected in the calf area. The back side of the calf is a faux suede that's supposed to have some stretch so that the boot will be form fitting. I wear boots now with a boot shaft of 14," and thought his one said it was 13-14" it was looser than my current pair. They also disappointed a bit in comfort. Even though there's supposed to be memory foam in the footbed, they did not feel particularly soft nor incredibly comfortable. They were not uncomfortable, with the exception of being too narrow in the forefoot for my feet, but just not as comfortable under my feet as I had hoped they would be. I had hoped to replace two pairs of boots with this one (riding boots and also dressy boots with a kitten heel), but they did not look as dressy as I would want. FWIW, I usually wear 5 in dress shoes, but I prefer 5.5 to 6 in boots for comfort, and I ordered both sizes to try. The 6 was ever so slightly wider in the forefoot, but still not comfortable, and had the same if not slightly more looseness in the calf as the 5.5. Someone with narrow feet and size 14"+ calves may find this a better fit.

I saw these on line and fell in love. So ordered them in two sizes. Opened the box - they were even cuter than on line. Slipped on the larger size and they seemed like they would be comfortable. BUT, I couldn't get them to sip up. They don't come in a wide, and my foot is kind of wide, but even a moderately high instep would have trouble. Very disappointed. :-(

I have last year's version of this Gentle Souls shoe. It is much more comfortable and attractive. For one thing, it doesn't have the unattractive piece, with gratuitous zipper, that rises too high in back. I was interested in the ankle straps of the Noa but they are too loose so I will stick with the annoying but adjustable buckle on the shoes that I have and like much better.

The pointed toe added a chic element to this classic, flat shoe. I can’t wear heels or sling backs so it’s hard to find a flat that can pass for ‘dressy’ with black evening pants. I added an adhesive arch support and wore these shoes for hours in total comfort.

The shoe is a very nice style. The small wedge is great for arch support. It is a perfect transition shoe. It ran small or I would be wearing it.

Great comfort shoe! Both stylish and comfortable. I bought an 8.5 and will be returning it for an 8. This shoe may run a little large. Love the material!

most gorgeous shoes. quality superb. BUT, the straps were too long for me. Length from my ankle to the heel of shoe was too short for these magnificent shoes. I have been trying for months to get anything half as good.

Oh my word this is comfortable. One of those extremely, extremely rare shoes I put on and almost immediately forgot I was wearing it. Glove-soft leather inside, enough padding, and it looks very nice - great trouser shoe for the office. Nice leather.

Very cute shoe! I would have liked to keep them but I just didn’t like the way the straps felt on my foot.

This is a rather plain shoe but I ordered it because it looked comfortable. The feels a bit short and my big toes actually are visible sticking up from the leather. The leather was soft and seemed comfortable except for the issue with my big toes. I don't love them so will be returning them.

These would have been really comfortable if they didn't come up so high in the back; they were digging into my heel and would have caused blisters. Both the sole and leather are quality, nice and soft.

Very stylish flat, but definitely short for size. I have had multiple pairs of Gentle Souls in the same size (8) with a perfect fit, but these are too short. I didn’t exchange them, thinking the size difference was not as much as a full half-size, & I thought the shoes would stretch in time. Not so; my feet still hurt every time I wear them ??

I love this shoe but it ran a bit large. Since my right foot is about a half size smaller than my left, I ordered a half size smaller pair. The smaller shoes fit perfectly! I bought the black pair. These shoes look so cute and are super comfortable.

LOVE these sandals. Bought them for a wedding on a farm - trekked all over the property and these held up beautifully all night. No rubbing or blisters, even the first time wearing them! They don't stay tied sometimes (that's the issue with a leather tie, I think), but that's my only issue. These are hands down the most comfortable sandals I own! Now I'm looking for more Gentle Souls fall shoes to round out the year.

Originally ordered 5-1/2, but that was a bit too short. The 6 was significantly too large all around. Nice mule all around, but must do without.
