Thank you we are very happy with this shoe fits true to size!!!!
Fits true to size and my heel stays comfortably in the shoe instead of slipping around or off.
The shoes fit well and are very comfortable with insole padding and support.

    The range of reviews shows that wide vs. narrow is not the only criteria that matters when it comes to shoe fit. I have a fairly narrow foot side to side, though not super narrow. But I do have a shallow foot -- low arch, low volume, so often my foot doesn't "fill" a medium width shoe and I need a narrow. These fit wonderfully! The ankle strap elastics are actually a bit long, but the shoe stays on my foot comfortably (my ankles are pretty skinny). The zipper is a little hard to get up and down, but overall these are great for me and very cute. The leather in the cement color is gorgeous and soft. Got them at a great Amazon price and am very pleased!

    These are really nice shoes, but if you have wide feet, especially where the joint of your toes meeting the feet are, these will not work.

    I had a hard time deciding to buy these because of the price, but so far, on a cost-per-wearing basis, the Gentle Souls Bay Unique is a bargain! This shoe is extremely flattering with shorts, slacks and skirts -- and the sole, while providing sufficient grip, is still danceable. Perfect for outdoor summer parties with dancing on decks, tile or even concrete. I never had a flat that was both so attractive and so comfortable ! In fact, I once loaned them to a friend (at her desperate insistence) because she had no dance shoes, so I got to see them from a distance: Lovely!

    I have narrow feet and a high arch and instep, and I've had no trouble with the zipper in back nor experienced any other discomfort. Although I usually wear a 9, I had to size down to an 8.5. The shoe is quite roomy on my foot, but the ankle elastic keeps everything comfortably in place. There is a little arch support in the moldable sole, which is not high enough to actually touch my foot, so I add an insert if I think about it and it does increase the long term comfort, but it's probably fine for medium width feet. Probably not good for wide sizes, though.

    The black suede has become my summer go-to shoe, and I get compliments and queries about them every time I wear them. Today I'm ordering the concrete (color, not shoe)!

    Size: 7.5 B(M) USColor: Black Suede Verified Purchase
    I wear a 7.5 this shoe kind of hits that mark, but it's very wide. The elastic straps are great I love them, probably why I bought the shoe as flats do tend to be a bit boxy. But that's the good news. The suede is of very poor quality in fact there were a couple of bald spots when they arrived. I've worn them twice and the black finish around the sole is already worn. They have not yet started to conform to my foot, perhaps that takes a bit of wearing. I'd love these shoes at a $49.00 price but at $150 they are not anywhere near that quality.

    Months down the line I've revised my review somewhat. These shoes aren't perfect but I'm glad I bought them. If they were priced more affordably I'd buy a bunch of them. The straps are fantastic.

    I have worn Gentle Souls for years. This style looked cute, but my entire foot (instep) was exposed. No support and not flattering at all on my foot.

    I was advised to size down by a half and they fit perfectly. They are well constructed. The suede is rich and the zippers are solid and classy, not brassy. I could walk across a continent in these. And they're just so darned pretty.

    These are the most comfortable shoes ever. I immediately bought them in another color. Fits true to size and my heel stays comfortably in the shoe instead of slipping around or off. The sole is soft and much more supportive than most flats. I think they are really cute!

    I just got the Gentle Souls Bay Unique Flats in Antique Pewter and I absolutely love them. They are top quality I was impressed when I opened the box and saw how well constructed the were. Once I put them on I noticed that they were supremely comfortable too, I felt as though I could have walked miles in them the first time I wore them. They are beautiful shoes and are very flattering on my feet. They seem to run true to size, perhaps even a tad big and wide so definitely do not order up unless you really run at the top of your size or have very wide feet. I will note that they are expensive and I cannot comment on the longevity of the shoe since I have only worn them once but they do seem to be well made and I was able to get mine at a discount from an online shoe discounter so search the web before you buy.
