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.

I give them 5 stars for comfort but 1 star overall because of the quality. As much as I love these shoes, I have had to regrettably return three pairs of Palomas due to the sole splitting along the butterfly indentation on the bottom of the shoe. I am so disappointed and am frustrated by having to try to find something that will be as comfortable. Zappos has been wonderful through the process, Alegria, on the other hand, said it was a batch issue and not to worry about it (I've had to replace 3 pairs since September 2011.)I currently have two split soles and foot pain as a result.

As a stay-at-home mom of 4 kids under age 7, I love this shoe for long days on my feet, its unusual comfort, and its versatile style. I have the Black Leather. I think this shoe looks best with skinny pants, leggings, or opaque tights and a skirt (I'm 5-10 and I love this look, but I can imagine someone shorter not finding the Paloma/tights/skirt look on shorter legs as appealing). These shoes are not streamlined - they are boxy, bigger shoes than my others - but they fit snugly and give toe room. It's not a sleek modern style - it's more European, bohemian, funky look. Wearing them with skirts, I've been told it looks very European. I find these fit true to the size conversion. The strap stays very snug. Occasionally I've felt a bit tired of the strong strap combined with the heavier shoe, but only after lots of wear in a long day. When I was pregnant with extremely sore and achy feet, these were the perfect salve. They were my go to's. Now back to regular feet, I prefer them on rigorous days. I would travel in these, as they're terrific for lots of walking. I prefer to wear them with a thin black dress sock underneath, for added comfort in the winter. They are warmer and more practical than most somewhat-dressy shoes as their height keeps your toes out of water, snow, and mud. We'll see how I use them in the summer; I'm not sure yet!

I love this shoe! I was looking for a comfy Mary Jane to wear to work with casual skirts, and this was the perfect shoe for me. I bought the Rave on the Nile color, and I love it. Just like other Alegria, the inside is memory foam, and within minutes of putting them on, they feel perfect. That is saying something considering my pronounced bunions, and tendinitis in both ankles. The Paloma is a style I keep coming back to because it gets me through long days teaching on a hard floor. My only complaint is that the soles are a bit slick when walking through snow.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Birkenstock

I ordered these after reading about them on a site that recommended the best shoes for plantar fasciitis. I wear a size 11 W and was a little leery when I saw that they consider euro 42 as a size 11, as other shoes I have ordered in euro size 42 are just a little short. But I ordered these anyway... Hoping! Alas, my hopes were dashed. While the wide width is perfect, my toes hit the front of the shoes. They are so cute that had they been a little less pricey I might have tried to wear them anyway (though I am pretty sure my toes would have been mad at me!) But sadly, they must go back. Since Zappos doesn't carry this brand in men's shoes, I may go directly to the Alegria website and try a size 43 in some not-too-manly style, just to see if this brand is really good for my plantar fasciitis. But for now it seems I am stuck with my Z-Coils and Crocs ( neither of which are very cute!) And every now and then my beloved Clarks, when the PF allows...

I took a shot at these. I have an exceptionally wide foot. Most single wide shoes are not wide enough but with the roomy toe box, they worked. So if you a WW or EEE width foot, give them a chance. I know the difficulties of finding wide width shoes. :-)

I'd also recommend: David Tate has some cute WW shoes

These shoes are very comfortable. They're better for walking than Dansko clogs IMO, but not great for walking-intensive adventures (like Disneyland, for example). These shoes are perfect for a mix of walking and standing. The strap across the top is firm and when I have used the shoes for walking all day, it has become uncomfortable for one of my feet. I love these shoes, and think they are super cute, but keep in mind they are suitable working shoes and not as walking shoes.
