These shoes are amazing !! They are my second pair of the Gentle Souls brand and they certainly didn't disappoint! The softest leather, most comfortable footbed! I am on my feet all day and they are a dream. I wear an 8 so the fit is perfect. They are pricey but my other Gently Souls (leopard print slides!) are 5 years old and still look and feel amazing. Worth every penny!!

I'm always a 9 1/2 in Gentle Souls so these were true to size, except the black pair was too tight and I couldn't get my foot in it. The ice and rose gold both fit better. I'm spoiled by wearing Birkenstocks and I did not find these comfortable despite the cushy thing in the heel. HOWEVER, I agree with the other reviewer that THESE SHOES SMELL BAD. They smell like toxic chemicals. The smell was overwhelming.
I'd also recommend:
Birkenstocks, Pikolinos, Rieker

I love wearing these! They are so comfortable. Don’t think I will be able to find another style I like with this much cushion. The leather is super soft like what you expect from gentle souls. I also have them in pink. I am barely a size 8 in this brand. In this case I know I can’t size down. For Reference: Ugg sandals in size 8 are perfect for me. But gentle souls must run a tiny bit larger at least in this style and the Kiki style in this brand size 8 was just too big.

These are beautiful shoes. Unfortunately, they did not work for me. The cushioned instep is wonderful. Although the leather is very soft, it hurt between my toes. Perhaps a half size larger would have fit better. I returned them.

Love these shoes, the foot bed is so soft and comfortable, feel like I am walking on a cloud! The gold color is so pretty, goes with everything. Even though these shoes are a little on the pricier side they are well worth it.

Adorable shoe, but unfortunately, was a tad too big for me. I normally wear a 5 and this shoe seemed to be a bit bigger. As others noted, also had an odd smell. Cute shoe though and seemed as if it would be very comfortable.

I was so hopeful about these shoes based on the other reviews, but these weren't even close for me. I'm an 8 to 8 1/2 and originally ordered the 8 based on others' true to size assessment. They were huge. Almost 3/4 too long and over 1/2 inch of space all the way around for width. I re-ordered a 7 1/2 hoping a had a fluke of bad luck. My foot hit the ends in both the front and back (so the difference between a 7 1/2 and 8 wasn't normal), and it was still far too wide. If you have wide or even extra wide feet this might be a great options. Everyone else - proceed with caution. Too pricey to fit this poorly.

Normally wear a 7, but due to reviews I went with 6.5 and they are perfect. Didn't love the rose gold color on me as I am a silver person but I can get over that. Furthermore I may now order them in black or white.

I am a 7.5 - and this sandal is true to size- fit like a glove- no blisters - after walking a mile on my first day of wearing they still felt like I was walking in a cloud.

Awesome I wear them a lot. I need extra cushion due to a total knee replacement and back issues and these sandals are so comfortable

I have never been so glad to spend this much on shoes. These are incredibly comfortable, beautifully made, and stylin'! I'll be wearing them for years.

They are beautiful and comfortable!! The only reason I gave 4 stars is because I would prefer it have arch support. I love them!

I needed another casual sandal and didn't have any white shoes in my lineup so I jumped on this at the sale price. It's a nice, comfortable pair and true to size but they just looked weird on my feet. I think they looked a lot better in the video. I'm about to pack them up and send them back. Sigh....

I ordered these in7.5 Which I wear about half the time. I really wanted the Ice color but it wasn't available . The rose gold seemed close . It wasn't. really Bright Gold I would say . and 7.5 were too small. I sent them back.
