These shoes are perfect for my imperfect feet. I recently had one foot reconstructured and the other needs surgery. I purchased 7 pairs, including Dansko, Clark's, Merrells and Keens, and returned and thought there were no shoes for me. I called again with Alegria as a possibility. I spoke with a rep who had been to the manufacturer and also wears Alegria. She suggested Paloma to me, explaining Alegria have so much padding even the ball of the foot. She said the patents are lined with leather and are extremely soft. I chose the tortoise color to wear with all colors. I had a smile as I put them on. I am amazed by the soft glove leather feel of these shoes. I have never felt shoes like these. I am so glad I tried again and now have these adorable mary janes. Thank you to Zappos for treating me great even though I had returned so many shoes in one month. Thank you to Viola for finding the perfect shoe for me.

Purchased at suggestion by Alegria to replace Feliz which was loose in heel. Totally different feel in insole and Feliz was like a cloud on insole but not these. Returned, still searching for the elusive 15 hour comfort shoe for work. Button trim (not functional) was not complimentary to the style.

These shoes have excellent arch support and a very comfortable foot bed. I am a size 8.5 and I got them in a 38 which is a perfect fit. The velcro strap is nice too because it allows you to adjust the strap to fit the top of the foot without cutting into it or putting too much pressure across the top of the foot. I have high arches so this is a problem I have had with Dansko mary janes. The other thing I like about these shoes is that compared to other Dansko or clog style/comfort foot bed shoes, is that they are light weight but have a sturdy sole. The leather is pretty soft too which means less breaking in time and no blisters! I got them in the Pewter Charmer color and they remind me of a Ziggy Stardust snake. They look a lot more blue-ish multi colored than in the photo here, but for me that's a good thing. I love this brand and plan to purchase more from this company. I highly recommend these for anyone who has fatigue or back pain.

Alegrias are so comfortable and so much fun! I bought the basic black Paloma for choir performances when I have to stand still for over an hour. But now I have thrown caution to the wind and own four more pairs, including the fun prints and ones with bejeweled buckles! I have always worn Danskos for the arch support, but these are even better. I disagree with all those who say they run big, or maybe I just like them looser. I wear a 7-1/2 in most shoes, which according to the Alegria size chart is a 37. But I wear a 38 in Danskos and Birkenstocks because I don't want them to hug my foot like a sneaker, so for me, the Alegria 38s are perfect. If you want them to feel secure like a running shoe or fashion pump, buy a size smaller. If you want to wallow in comfort and have happy feet, buy your true size. (Having said that, I must add a detail: I buy the 38s in the closed styles - Paloma and Feliz and in the Classics, but a 37 in the open-toe sandals.)

I'd also recommend: Sanita, Birkenstock, Danso

I love these shoes! Not only are they festive but so comfortable to wear standing for many hours. And they kind of roll when you walk due to the curved sole, which gives you a little boost forward. I debated for an hour whether to get the size 39 or 40 and after reading many reviews decided on the 39, and it fits perfectly. I usually wear a size 9-1/2 but fluctuate between a European size 39 and 40.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Keen

My daughter is a nurse and has 7 pair of Alegria in different styles/colors. She loves the shoes, and since I need a very good arch support, she suggested I try a pair. I work at an Elementary School as Secretary to the Principal, and I am on my feet a lot. I ordered one pair of Paloma, and I loved the way they fit and their funky style and colors. I ordered a second pair, then I ordered a 3rd pair. They are soooo comfortable. The arch support is excellent. It's also fun to get the cute comments from the students, parents and co-workers who have never seen a shoe quite like this. I love going to the mall because I always get comments from people. I am really hooked on this shoe and will probably catch up on my daughter's 7 pair. Also, I will be 70 years old in April and enjoy keeping up with current styles. I have paid the same for other brands that do not come near the comfort or style of Alegria.

I'd also recommend: Clark
