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.

Love these, although they are a bit narrow and long for me. I'll keep wearing them around the house until I decide if they fit well enough to keep them. They'd be great for a narrow foot (mine is not). These shoes are super cute. Casual enough for jeans or even shorts while dressy enough to wear with nice slacks.

This is a clean-lined, non-gimmicky, stylish boot, with a good sized toe-box and nicely pointed toe. It's low heel and cushioned footbed make them quite comfortable with the exception of some rubbing on my heels above the zipper. I'm willing to work through this "break-in" period since these boots look great with jeans, pants AND dresses.

This is my first pair of Gentle Souls, but will not be my last! I am exactly a size 7, and that is the size I ordered. Perfect fit. The foot bed actually conforms to my foot perfectly, and I have a slightly high arch. Super comfy, super cute. This is the best-fitting, cutest and comfiest espadrille in my closet!

Love these shoes! Cute, very comfortable, and well made. My only complaint is that the ankle strap was super loose. I had to add two additional holes in order to be able to fit my ankle.

Comfy. Like comfort-brand comfy based on good solid construction and I am guessing a medium-density thick foam footbed. Most shoes have low-density foam that doesn't last. They are heavy for sandals and just feel very well made. They ran a bit big.

Can I just say I think I love these even more than my other pairs of Gentle Souls and that’s seriously saying something! They are gorgeous and just SO comfortable! I know some reviewers have said these run a little bit but mine fit perfectly just like all my other 9.5s. Get these if you can, you won’t regret it! The quality workmanship and style are proof that all women’s shoes are capable of being gorgeous and comfortable.

This pretty shoe has great arch and footbed support, which I need for mild plantar fasciitis. It was a little roomy in size 9. It's really pretty, but I wound up returning it in favor of an oxford from Clarks. Just personal preference (and saving $70).

I've been looking for a pair of slip-on-and-go shoes that are a stylistic step above my running shoes. I ordered these on a whim. For fit/foot comparison's sake: I am a true 8.5, medium width but for a small tailor's bunion developing on the small toe side of each foot, very high arches, high instep. I tend towards over pronation and walk with a first metatarsal drop (meaning I strike the ground with the big toe side of my foot first, especially when running) for which I have compensatory orthotics. In a word, these shoes are AWESOME! True to size, the 8.5 fit well in both length and width. The leather is supple so they can accommodate the little tailor's bunions I have (yay!). The footbed and interior are lined in a very soft leather. They have a subtle heel to toe drop, which feels great on my achilles tendon. Best of all, notice the little slit in the top of the shoe? How heavenly to finally find a slip on shoe that works great with my ridiculously high instep! No pressure on the nerve running down the top of the foot (something I often experience in slip on shoes)! Plus, they are stylish while retaining function (a high end looking athleisure shoe). The cons: 1. I did add a pair of arch cookies to give my high arches some support. I would have preferred to have been able to remove the footbed so that I could use my own orthotics. We'll see if I can get away without them. 2. The back of the shoe comes up a tad high, hitting the top of the back of my heel. That's going to take some breaking in, so I will wear a little moleskin at the beginning (just in case). Zappos, thank you for making it possible for me to try on a thousand pairs of shoes in order to find the best ones for my feet. If you have feet like mine, trust that you can feel comfortable ordering these. They feel GREAT!

These shoes are great for long wearing comfort and stylish too. However, after having for only four months and wearing a handful of times they have started to peel at the toe and are starting to look worn. These are expensive shoes and I am very disappointed in the lack of hold up. I have had shoes for 2 years that have held up better than these.

I purchased these in gray for my daughter-in-law to wear to our youngest son's Prenuptial Dinner. She wears a 5.5 medium or a 6 medium shoe, depending. We tried a 5.5 because they were out of the 6. The 5.5 fit perfectly. She wore them with a midi length cotton sweater dress and they were absolutely perfect! They are adorable and comfortable and she received lots of compliments on them. Since returning home she has worn them with jeans and leggings too.

I want these shoes to work for me so dearly! They are really stylish, have a ridiculously comfortable foot bed similar to all Gentle Souls (I didn't know Kenneth Cole bought Gentle Souls), and would look great with cropped jeans, capri leggings, khaki shorts and a white tank. They are the perfect alternative to always wearing running shoes with everything. But, there are some major design drawbacks to discuss below. For fit/foot comparison: I am a true 8.5, medium width but for a small tailor's bunion developing on the small toe side of each foot, very high arches, high instep. I tend towards over pronation and walk with a first metatarsal drop (meaning I strike the ground with the big toe side of my foot first, especially when running) for which I have compensatory orthotics. The Raina Slip-On: This is a slip into it and go kind of athleisure shoe. Because there is no lacing, it either fits or it doesn't. I found the Raina to be true to size and an 8.5 was perfect for me in width and length. The insole is not removable and because the footbed is padded and molded, there's no way to also insert your own orthotic. I was worried that the upper would be too tight and press down on the nerve that runs down the top of the foot, as happens with other slip on shoes, but the upper material is soft and stretchy, and feels awesome. Here's the drawback to that soft, comfortable upper: because the sole is elevated, kind of like a platform sneaker (which is hard to discern from the photos), and the upper is like a sock attached to the shoe's sole, there is absolutely zero lateral support to the foot/ankle. None. If you are inclined to rolling your ankle, these are not for you. I rolled my ankle on the second step I took when trying them on. I can only describe them as kind of a floppy upper attached to an elevated platform (and I do not have a narrow or low volume foot). I wish I cold make these work, as they are exactly what I was looking for and want. But, they are just too unstable and unsupportive.

Finally, a ballet flat with padding and arch support! I'm a 10.5-11, and ordered a size 11 since a 10.5 wasn't available. It's a little loose barefoot, but wearable. It fits just right if I have to capitulate to cold weather and wear socks. The front sits just in front of my big toe joint, which may prove to be uncomfortable on long days or extended walks because it kind of cuts into my foot. (If you have bunions, this may be a painful issue). The minimalistic toe cap leaves a peek of toe cleavage. It's versatile enough to wear with trousers or jeans or capris. Keeper!
