About Gentle Souls Footwear

Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole combines fashion, comfort, and care for your feet – in a natural way. Our shoes combine revolutionary technology with natural materials to provide organic comfort that feels as good as it looks.

INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY - Gentle Souls styles feature a combination of the latest developments in footwear to provide a unique feel and comfort. From NASA-developed performance memory foam to our patented Displaceable Solid Technology, we use creativity and a mix of specialized materials to provide optimal shock absorption, a weightless feeling in your natural walk, and firm yet flexible arch support that uniquely contours to you.

NATURAL MATERIALS - We develop shoes by looking everywhere for possible innovation – and for a natural walk, we look to the natural world. Gentle Souls shoes uniquely repurpose materials with organic origins, for the utmost softness on your skin and flexibility for your foot. That’s why walking in our shoes just feels natural.

THOUGHTFUL DESIGN - Each detail of our shoes, from the materials used to the shaping of the sole, has been carefully crafted to create shoes you’ll love wearing and ensure you feel as good as you look. From modern yet feminine styling to our unparalleled comfort experience, we strive to provide elevated style that translates honestly to your life, in the form of fashionable pieces that make you feel comfortable and confident.
