THEY STRETCH!!! You should know that - for me these shoes felt tight, especially in the toe box. The insole is very thick and I was concerned that they were too small, but I read elsewhere that they would stretch, and they did after only a day of wear. Now they fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I wear them to work as a chef and I think these are the most attractive kitchen shoes I've found so far. They are also easier to walk in than Dansko clogs - I find that outside of the kitchen, I am prone to turning my ankle when wearing the clogs. These shoes are closer to the ground and feel more safe for my ankles.

I am completely disappointed! I have two of the classic Alegria and one sandal and they are my most comfortable shoes. Naturally I expected the same when I purchased the Dayna. Boy, was I wrong. While their other shoes are roomy, these are tight and restrictive and uncomfortable. I don't understand why the fit would change so drastically. Very sad about it. Can't return them because I've already worn them out thinking they'd be just fine.

The Alegria Danya Professional is a great shoe. The size/width & arch are super comfortable. I have fun listening to people's comments about the look of the shoes. I own 4 pair of the Alegria Paloma and one of the Dayna and all the shoes are of the highest comfort. I am almost 70 yrs. young and love the look of all of my Alegria shoes. I'm very active, work at an elementary school and could not get through my days without my Alegria shoes. Also Zappo's has the best customer service! My daughter is a nurse and owns about 8 pair, she loves them all...

I'd also recommend: Keen Sandles (Whisper)

I bought both the Paloma and the Dayna to see which one I liked better because this is the first time I have strayed away from Dansko, I have to say this show has really good arch support but it felt very large, I wear a 40 in Dansko and I bought a 40 in both shoes, but the Dayne felt very big, my foot kept slipping out of the back, but the Paloma it fit perfect. I love the color of the Paloma so once again, appearance made my decision and I ended up sending the Dayna back.

These are comfortable with a cute twist on a Mary Jane. The bronze color works well with khakis or darker tans/browns. I normally wear an 8 (sometimes 7.5) and these fit great. Warning: I have narrow feet and these fit well -- so not sure they would work if you're feet are wide at all.

I'd also recommend: Birkenstock

I have never taken the time to write a review, but bought these shoes (plus two Alegria Paloma's) and I think I'm "sold" on Alegria. The Danya is a little loose, but I bought some heel grips & put some thin 1/2 soles in the front. I bought the red patent leather -- and they are so pretty. I call them my "Dorothy" shoes. The reason I am writing the review: I have had bilateral (both feet) plantar fasciitis for about 3 years. I teach, and am on my feet a lot. My sensitive feet coupled with fibromyalgia has stumped 2 podiatrists and an orthopod. I purchased from Zappos because of the free-shipping return policy. This was my first (but not last) purchase from Zappos. I have worn these for about a week-10 days, and I am amazed. My heels don't throb at the end of the day! (Only one time when I taught & then went shopping = extra time on my feet.) I am "cautiously" hopeful. (I don't want to "jinx" it!) The Palomas seem to tighten better, but I have been wearing the red to support teachers in a different district on strike (red being the color of support). The Daynas are less clunky than Palomas, but I love the variety in the patterns -- especially in Palomas. Just bought a shearling clog to wear around the house like slippers (to keep my arches their most happy). I had previously (for about 15 years) worn Mephistos with great success, but my feet must have changed over the years, because even Mephistos were not helping. I am most pleasantly surprised with Alegria, and I am truly 'alegria' (Spanish for joyous).
