    Got a size 38 and 39. 38 was too short and 39 was too long. Wish they offered these in 38.5 as I think that would be perfect. Loved the tooled leather. Very disappointed that neither size fit.

    I purchased the white tooled style and love how they look, however, the sizing was off. I'm between an 8-8.5 so I ordered a 38 but they're a tad too small. My toes are right at the front of the shoe, no wiggle room. I'm going to return them for a 39 and hope that works.

    I wear 38 in Alegria Paloma and was looking for something to wear with skirts/dresses (I only wear the Paloma's with pants)These did fit but it was too wide in the heel and there was no way for me to walk in the shoes. Too bad, I really wanted to like these

    Cute shoes-love the black leaf design! I tried many brands of shoes and this one fit the best. The oblique shaped toe allows sufficient room for all the toes without squishing them. The footbed is very comfortable and the arch support is excellent for a normal arch (I have metalarsgia). I did have some trouble with them being a little wide through the ankle/heel area, but I added some strips of Dr. Scholl's molefoam and that solved the problem. These are Keepers!

    Liked the shoe design well enough, and thought it was super comfy....might have kept it but the shoe smelled terrible! Almost a moldy smell, it filled the whole room after I opened the box. It was my first time trying the brand, but I thought I'd give another Algeria style a try, and it worked out. This style was a bit more ornate than I'd prefer anyway, and it seemed tough to get my feet in and out of the shoe, the opening was tight and the buckles not very easy to manipulate.

    Love this shoe. It is very attractive and very comfortable and fits my foot (wide toe box needed but then the heels never fit. With this style, great fit and incredible comfort. I'm going back for a second color in this style. VERY terrific shoe.

    these shoes are awesome! I needed an alternative to dankos, I'm getting treated for PTTD currently and these shoes are supportive in all the right places and do not make my feet feel weak when I take them off, they also don't hurt the top of my foot.
  • Classic Posted: Reviewer: from California Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 4 Stars
    I have about 6 pairs of the Classic, but the new perennial color choice is my new favorite. It is so cute and fresh and will be great for Spring and Summer...my dog noticed them right away and picked one up and carried it over to his little bed and laid his head on it! Labradoodles do the funniest things! I have many knee, foot and back issues and Alegria has made my life so much more comfortable. They are supportive and perfect on hard floors. They aren't exactly "dainty", but I just want to be comfortable and enjoy life. Alegria understands this, I think. Beautiful shoes in so many ways.
  • Emma Posted: Reviewer: from Virginia Overall: 5 Stars Comfort: 5 Stars Look: 5 Stars
    I needed a shoe for work that is slip resistant, comfortable, and somewhat fashionable. This shoe fit the bill. I have worn them almost everyday since September and they're so comfortable! I can be on my feet all day long and still feel good. They're well made, and look great when polished/buffed. I would buy these again in a heartbeat. Totally worth the money!

    My feet LOVE these! I've been through 4 pairs now for work, on my feet long hours. I have plantar fasciitis AND a bone spur on my great toe and these are nice and comfy. Bonus, you can get replacement insoles.
