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.

I work retail, and was experiencing foot pain at the end of my shift (diabetes). While my husband was in the hospital, I saw his nurse wearing these, and explained my situation to her - she highly recommended this brand. I have had these for about three weeks now, and pain is gone. A coworker has now ordered herself a pair, too. Best part - the cork footbed can be replaced when needed! And it is available in a wide range of sizes! They are expensive, but well worth the money.

First time ordering shoes online and I've never tried this brand before. Due to some foot pain (plantar fasciitis) I needed shoes with a cork sole. After searching I found Alegria and decided to give them a shot - with free returns there wasps no penalty if they didn't work. Well, I love them! I can finally stop wearing my Birkenstocks in the snow.

It took me a while to figure out the sizing in this shoe when ordering from Zappos. If you look up standard conversion charts (including Zappos) from Euro to US size, a 39 is an 8.5 but when selecting the size of the Paloma, the size choice says a 39 is a 9 - 9.5. Because of that I assumed there was something different about Alegrias and initially ordered the 39 since I'm a size 9. Nope - I needed a 40 which fits perfectly. So I think Alegrias run true to size but Zappos' size conversion is wrong. I love the toe room in these shoes and they're really cute in a "chunky" sort of way. The insoles are very thick, seem comfortable and are removable. I wear orthotic insoles and add 1 or 2 thin plain insoles under my orthotic to fill the space normally filled by the thick Alegria insole. I bought the Black Magic - quality leather and the button is beautiful.

I'd also recommend: Finn Comfort

I am a nurse and I love these shoes. They squeak when I walk. My first set of shoes sounded like I had a dog's squeaky toy in it, so Zappos exchanged them for a new pair. After about 6 mos of wear on the next set, the right shoe's Velcro started to come undone when I would walk which is not fun when you are busy working. All that said, they are so comfy and my feet never hurt after a full day of work. Zappos made it right with me. But because of the Velcro problem I would never buy this style again. I still really like Alegria, but for Alegria needs to put better quality Velcro on their shoes.
