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.

So let me explain my unusual ratings. I stand all day for work and need supportive shoes. These are amazingly comfortable. The style is fine, a nice mary jane with a button embellishment, albeit a bit chunky looking. I have two other styles of Alegria, the Ali and the Dayna. The problem with the Paloma, and the reason I had to return them was that they squeaked loudly. I facilitate trainings and move around a room as people work and the shoes were disruptive. I had a woman in one of my training's with the same shoes and she had the same problem. Even my superior mentioned how distracting and annoying the sound of my shoes were. I have had a pair of Dayna's for longer and they are not as noisy do I traded the Paloma for another pair of Dayna.

I'd also recommend: Dansko, Fit Flops

I bought a pair of Alegria and loved them at first, then the longer I wore them the more they squeaked. Being a nurse, trying to walk into a patients room without waking them up was impossible. I decided to try a different style but stuck with Alegria. Again at first they were fine, but after about 2 months they started to squeak again. I will never buy another pair of this brand.

I wanted to love this shoe...the sole is comfortable enough to give in to looking like Minnie Mouse. Every year I struggle with the perfect shoe to travel in...I thought I had found it. Yes, the styling of this shoe is odd enough to get strange looks and comments in European countries...but if I can last all day on marble floors and cobblestone streets, who cares! Well, the soles didn't have enough traction for slick cobblestones, and the sharp edges gave me blisters in the heat. So while the sole and arch support get top marks, the sharp edges make this shoe a no go! This being said, some of the new styles are with higher quality leather are tempting me again...the sole is that comfortable!

I ordered the Charcoal Patent with the skulls. Adorable! I wear a size 11, have a wide foot and very high arch. It is almost impossible to find shoes to fit after having surgery. My work shoes, fun shoes and dress shoes consisted of men's athletic shoes until now. Wahooooo! Something girly and funky. Zappos is a star! They carry larger sizes and wide widths and their return policy is second to none. Hopefully Alegria will come out with some cute lace up shoes.

I love these shoes (charcoal patent) for the style, the support and the weight. My Danskos feel like bricks in comparison! My only challenge with them is the squeaking which I cannot figure out how to fix (yet). Also the strap is not soft and when I work them with only shoe liners, I had blisters on the top inside of both feet by the end of the day.
