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 have hallux limitus and need a shoe that has a rigid sole and a rocker bottom. The Paloma meets that requirement. For those that are newer to the comfort shoe world, they can be shocking. It's a style adjustment. I'm sure they look way better with scrubs. I have a narrow foot, but need a wide toe box to accommodate my RA swollen toes and my bunions. After four hours, my bunions were screaming. I am hoping the toe box stretched if possible. My main complaint is the sides of the mary janes. The dug into the skin beneath my ankles causing blisters within the first 45 minutes of wear. After three layers of moleskin, I have been able to make this work. I hope some time walking around the house with thick socks may reduce the band-aid/moleskin needs.

I'd also recommend: Chaco, Fly London, Naot

Well made shoe. Comfortable; however, very tight on the top of my foot. Going to try this shoe in wide.

These shoes are hands down the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. And, now I can walk again after several years of only hobbling along. I have hallux limitus which "hella limits" one's ability to get around in addition to causing constant pain. These shoes with the rigid rocker sole propels one's stride forward without the need to bend at the MTP joint. The toe box is roomy with absolutely no stress points. Have contacted Alegria to see if they can design a hiking shoe along this line with more of a Keen-like heavy tread for trails. This shoe actually will work on a light trail but they're really too nice to get scuffed and dusty. But, the shoes are so great they just keep me moving - sidewalk to trail. I may have to order another style or finish that would be more suitable until those Alegria trail shoes are a reality. The shoe runs a little short. I wear a 9 1/2 but ordered the 40. I also went with the Wide for the freedom across the top of my foot. I have high arches and these were supportive enough for me.

I have 3 pairs of the Alegria Paloma. Obviously, I like the fit and look very much. They do have a "cute" look especially those that are prints. The solid colors are not as conspicuous.This model is super comfortable and is a good substitute for clogs. It's easier walking than clogs (about the same standing) and because I have a high instep an adjustable strap like this is better than clogs that are not adjustable. I wear a 37 in this style and a 38 in most; however, they explain that their 37 is 7-71/2 and I find them very true to that size. Overall highly recommended!

I'm a clog girl due to hallux rigidus - love the Danskos and others, and I thought by photo these would be a nice addition to my wardrobe. Ugh! Whomever said they were narrower and more stylish than Danskos are totally off base. I found these to be boats. I'm unsure if they were truly wide, or if they just felt that way due to the style. I tried two styles and found both to be too frumpy even for my orthodic needing foot, and honestly I'm not vain anymore, I just have to be able to walk. The search continues, sorry to say that Alegria isn't for me.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Tsubo, Fly London
