I am in love with Alegria shoes. I bought my first pair online without ever having tried them on - I took a chance out of desperation. I have very serious foot problems, and am constantly looking for a comfortable shoe, and am almost always disappointed. Alegria is the first shoe I have worn in years, the first day I wore then,when I didn't think about my feet all day! What started with one pair has now turned into something of a collection. I just ordered the black rose, to add to my growing collection of 14 pairs. These shoes are not for everyone, as they are a bit chunky looking, and frankly, not very stylish, although I do think the fun colors and patterns help get me past that. They make my feet happy and comfortable, mostly pain free, and that is more important to me than looks. I think that anyone who has suffered from painful foot conditions, especially very flat feet, will love these shoes.

The toe box was not deep enough for my foot to get into the shoe. It is a beautiful shoe. I am really disappointed that it did not work for my foot. Pretty, blue shoes are hard to find.

I was attracted to these shoes because they are so shiny and pretty. But I hesitated because of the wide style. Well, they have hardly come off of my feet since I bought them. They are so comfy and fun! I just love them! The Tortoise color is subtle and fabulous. A perfect choice if you like "different".

I love Alegria shoes. I have like 5 pair. I wear these all day in the operating room where I'm on my feet all day. They are not only stylish, but very comfortable on my feet! There is no breaking in period either! The first time you put them on, it feels like you've walked in them for weeks.

This is my first pair of Alegria shoes and I love them! I have very difficult to fit feet with bunions, and I stand on my feet all day, and these shoes are the most comfortable shoes I've every worn. Great arch support!

Third pair of Alegria, I ordered the Frida. This is not only super comfortable, but the print is symmetrical. What? When I look down at my shoes I noted that the print is reversed. Example: the large purple and pink heart on the right pinkie toe is the same (but flipped) on the left pinkie toe. This takes extra planning on the shoemaker. Frida looks great with black, purple, or rose. I teach and my students went wild for these ageless shoes.

Brands I'd also recommend: Naot, Finn Comfort, Born, Keen, Klogs USA, and Alegria (love shoes)

A friend shared her positive experience since changing to Alegria shoes and I was really needing some shoes with arch support. These are the best shoes I have ever put on my feet. Now, I have two pairs and will be buying another pair. At the end of the day, I found my back and hip didn't hurt.

Finally! Shoes that do not hurt my feet. I have bought 35 pairs of comfort shoes in the past two years because of painful arches. If I find something that does not hurt my feet, then my back, knees, or hips hurt. That is not so with Alegria! From day one, these shoes felt like Heaven to walk in. I have plantar fasciitis in my right foot and a bunion on my left, so I have always had the problem of all shoes hurting one of my feet somewhere, but these do not. I just bought my second pair and look forward to buying many more. The colors and prints are so fun, and they look great with everything. You have got to get these!

This is my first time buying Alegrias and I have to say I am very impressed! The comfort is amazing! My only complaint is that when I wear them out in public I get bombarded by people asking me "where did you get those cool shoes?"

Love the shoes, but I needed to order 2 sizes over my reg size (short box feet). Also the catalog from Alegria said they have w width. When I called I found out you can order a less thick insole which gives extra toe room, one can hope. We'll see.

These looked fun and seem to be very very comfortable. They are very wide though so the style may not be for all.

These are heaven on your feet. I work in a hospital and would see these shoes in various styles on all kinds of medical (and other!) feet. I have tried every nurse type shoe out there...these are by far the most comfortable for ten hour days. They also served me well for a vacation in Europe with lots of walking. The only time I have ever taken only one shoe for an entire vacation and never had tired or sore feet. I did have to order one size up from my normal size and had to send back my first pair due to sizing, but Zappos is the best when it comes to quick and free returns and re-orders. Love Alegria and love Zappos!

Got this shoe in the sophistisnake charcoal and have worn them as my slip on shoe to yoga class for 3 weeks. Super duper comfortable for my narrow foot with high arches. Have received lots of compliments on them too. Also, went camping for 4 days on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and they ended up being my shoe of choice for the whole camping trip. Even hiked the Linville Falls trail with 2 basset hounds and it was very comfortable. These are big shoes -- and I usually do not wear big shoes -- but because of the flower design they look more prissy than some of the other colors. Love the adjustable buckle that you can loosen for socks and tighten for bare feet. This is just an excellent slip on shoe, comfortable for walking, camping, and lounging around.

First, what I love: The oil-slick snake/gator pattern is remarkably neutral and coordinates well with anything I wear. Zero break-in period Soft and breathable insole Soft uppers that molded to my bunions by the second day I wore them. Cons: I have flat feet so while the insole is supposed to mold itself to your foot, it's not going to provide me with any substantial arch support. I plan to buy an arch cookie to glue to the inside of the shoe (I've done this successfully w/ other shoes - Tacco is an excellent choice). Misc: This shoe runs a bit wide b/c normally standard (medium) width shoes are a smidge too tight due to my bunions and these were not. Also, I usually wear a size 41 and in this brand, a 41 was way too big. The 40 is perfect. I am a nurse and wear these for work. The leather in this pattern is softer than the ones with patent type uppers which I found to be very stiff.

I am so excited over the Embossed Blue Alegria I received last week. I had previously worn the embossed brown. And a brown leather for two years with scrubs with brown and a color, I felt they were the most comfortable work shoe I had ever worn. They were the only shoe I can wear and not have my feet and legs hurt at the end of a busy 12 hour shift. After changing jobs 3 months ago and working at a hospital that wears Only Navy and White scrubs, I missed my Alegria shoes so much. My body felt exhausted . I saw the embossed Blue and was hesitant they would not look good with Navy. They are beautiful. I have so many compliments on them. My feet feel wonderful. When I started wearing the brown ones, several people ordered them after seeing how cute they are, I expect these will be the new status symbol for Navy Scrubs. My daughter wears the wine and roses shiny patent with Navy scrubs and thinks they were the best birthday gift ever. She and I both thought the style that did not have the cut outs near the buckles were a little narrow, and we neither have wide feet. She got the liners for a wide width. They are so cute they can be worn by anyone. Can't wait to get another pair.

I can't say I'm in love with the look--they are a bit clunky--but these are really comfortable clogs for my high-arch, double-A sensitive feet. I tightened the buckle, I wear them with thin socks, and they were comfortable from the get-go. I also love that they are extremely stable--I've had problems turning my ankles in some styles of clog but i feel completely anchored in these. So I'm willing to put up with the look for the comfort/stability these afford. (The look is great for jeans/informal, but it doesn't jibe with my skirts...)

Very comfortable, and in the world of nurse shoes, very fashionable. I get a lot of comments. I wear a size 7 1/2, so ordered the 7/ 7 1/2, and had to send them back for the next size up (8/ 8 1/2)

I do hair for a living and these are wonderful for work. If you have a narrow foot you will love the close fit. I ordered a regular width and they run narrow in my opinion. Very comfortable shoe with or without socks.

My feet used to hurt so badly during work, but as I read other reviews on the Alegria shoes, I gave them a try and I absolutely love them. I love the comfort of the shoe mostly but I also like the style as well. I highly recommend these shoes for anyone who is looking for a shoe with comfort and style!

I purchased my first pair of Alegria shoes in Frida Patent because they were cute and half price. I have plantar fasciitis and high arches. Therefore, I have a difficult time finding shoes that give me orthodic support and don't rub blisters on my arches, toes or bunion area. I love these shoes! They were comfortable right from the start and no matter how long I wear them, I have no foot pain. I might add that I wear Orthaheel sandals. Tried their shoes and they rubbed my bunion area. I'll be buying many more pairs of Alegria. They are fun shoes that always elicit comments from other women. Thanks Alegria for a wonderful shoe that is fun, affordable and, most of all, fun.

Brands I'd also recommend: NONE, these are the best!

If you love Dansko, you will love these! I have to say that I think these are even more comfortable than my favorite Dansko shoes! I normally wear a size 7.5, and wear a size 37 perfectly in the Alegria. They are really cute and padded and comfortable enough to stand and walk in all day. Worth the money!
