Comfy not frumpy: Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole

I haven’t exactly been quiet about my foot struggles this summer. And although Aerosoles is my comfort shoe retailer of choice, I have been keeping myself–and my feet–open to other possibilities.

So, when browsing the outlet racks at Eileen Fisher last weekend, I took notice of the line of good-looking shoes they had sprinkled throughout the store. To my surprise, I learned they were Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole: A line of comfort shoes that are made to look chic not frumpy. And the combo of flaxseeds and memory foam is supposed to make them feel like total heaven on your feet. They did feel pretty great, I have to admit.

For summer, they had neutral frills-free wedges and funky metallic sandals.

And there were some nice office-appropriate flats, too. I especially like the preppy loafers for fall.

Gentle Souls can be found online at the Kenneth Cole site and also Piperlime (one of my all-time favorite places to shoe browse).

FYI: Be prepared for the prices. They’re not exactly bargain-basement, but I have a feeling these styles will last you a long time.

    Oooh I’ve been thinking about buying a pair for the wedding season + pregnancy. Do you think they are comfy after 8 hours on my feet? I hear they have flax seeds and memory foam in them.

      Yep, they do have that fancy stuff inside. I think they’d be great for wedding season! i like the selection better on Piperlime than the actual KC site
