Oh. Em. Gee. These shoes are so stinkin' cute! As per usual (Zappos shipping time kicks major butt), they showed up at my door the next day and I was not disappointed. I ordered the bronze sparkly pair and was so enamored with them that I almost walked into a wall because I was looking at my totes adorable shoes & not at where I was going. I'm gonna order myself another pair right...now. Oh. And they're super comfy, too.

I own a pair of Alegria Palomas and love them, so these caught my eye and I decided to try them out. Unfortunately, not only did I have to order a full size smaller (the same size I ordered as my Palomas were too large, as my heel kept slipping out), after a day of wearing them I had blisters on both sides of my feet. This style is not as wide as the Paloma style (and I do have wide feet), so I will not be buying them again. That's too bad because I love the style and the festive, sparkly look of them. Back to buying the Paloma style only, I guess. I own a pair of Alegria Palomas and love them, so these caught my eye and I decided to try them out.

I ordered Alegria Feliz in Crinkle Leather on a whim, after reading reviews. I am on my feet all day and have had foot pain recently, even to the point where I had to stop wearing Danskos. I have size 11 or 12 feet and they are wide, so I have lots of trouble finding shoes that are big enough, wide enough, and comfortable. These shoes fit the bill. I love the style, put them on and they feel wonderful. They take all the pressure off the ball of my foot (Danskos were putting too much pressure on this area, though I loved them for 8 years!). The arch support rivals Dansko, but the footbed is softer. I also had a tendency to turn my ankle in the Danskos but these, due to the wider sole, do not seem to have that problem so far (just have had Alegrias for a few days). The one thing I did not like was the Crinkle Leather, I was worried that it was too shiny and would get scuffed easily so I sent it back and ordered the Professional style in the black leather (they didn't have it in my size in the Feliz or I would have ordered Feliz again). The Professional was great but was a little tighter on my toes, though I am working on stretching them out there. The footbed feels marvelous though and I am now going to try other styles! Completely worth the money, even without a sale!

These are adorable on my feet, but about 1/2 inch too long. I am sending them back and trying a size 40. The footbeds are amazing. These will be great shoes for teaching in.

I generally wear a size 6.5, and in European sized I generally wear a 36. Based on the Alegria sizing recommendations I got a size 36 in the Feliz style. They felt significantly small, about a full size. The leather around the edges was a little stiff and rough, and so that combined with the small size really rubbed uncomfortably on the top of my foot. I had to return them without ever getting to wear them out of the house. I have a pair of the Classic Alegria clogs and they are so comfortable! I will just reorder a pair of those in a size 37 and know that they are perfect.

These shoes are very comfortable. The soft black has a slight shimmer to it, nothing gaudy, just a little sparkle. I think I've found the answer to my Craft Show Blues! There is very good arch support and plenty of room in the toes, so no more crunched toes when my feet swell. Way to go Zappos, Thank You for the fast shipping. If you are contemplating these shoes, go for it.

I'm shocked and confused at the great reviews this shoe has gotten. 1. Style is pretty ugly (I got size 10, I usually wear 9.5 but had a feeling 9.5 would be too small ). I felt I was wearing a boat of a shoe. 2. Definitely appears to need breaking in. I don't believe a shoe that is this price should require any breaking in! 3. These would look great if you work in a circus environment. Hubby and I had a good laugh when I tried them on.

I so wanted these shoes to fit. So cute, but at least a size too big and that was even with trying socks and inserts. I got the smallest available and even that was too big.

It's almost impossible to tell from the photo online, but these are sparkly. Like glitter. Stars in the night sky. Interesting, but not if you needed plain black!

This company is amazing. When I had trouble with an item and price and called the 800 number the woman was so wonderful. She treated me like I could have been her sister. The company's response to my order was excellent. To top it all off, the shoes arrived the next day and I saved a considerable price over the retail store price. I would shop here whenever I could.

My first Alegria shoes and I love them. They are so very comfortable. I have terrible feet stretched tendons so flat footed. These have wonderful arch support and great comfort. I found the color strange (Glitter) but because they are so comfortable I wear them often. They are a little wide in the heel.

I am having trouble finding a shoe that doesn't hurt the big "bone bump" on the top of my foot. I have some Danskos but wanted to try a different shoe. I think this shoe fits the bill - for the most part. Only problem is that my foot is a bit narrow, and this shoe is wide. I have to wear a cotton sock and tighten the strap to the very edge. It takes a little getting used to walking in them because the heel is loose.

Having bad foot problems, being a nurse. I have tried more shoes then you can imagine, only to wear one time and have them kill my feet. I have been literally limping all the time due to a bone spur on the back of my heel that causes chronic achilles tendonitis. put these shoes on and guess what , no more limping. something about the slight rock that it gives the foot. I can't say I was completely pain free( that will never happen) but it felt so good to not limp. Try them!

These are adorable! I have never ordered a European size before, so ordered the size 40 which is supposed to correspond to US 10. It was a scosh too tight. Called CS immediately and they are sending out the 41's as I type this. Spectacular customer service! Can't wait to get them.

Love the shoes this is my 4th pair and have wore them the last 3 years. I am a hair stylist, I find myself wearing them all the time. Just love them, love them! I wear a size 9 I ordered a 39 but because of the closed in shoe I think it may be to short for one that wears a 9-1/2.

I purchased the Alegria brand after speaking with a nurse about the comfort of these shoes. I bought this style after seeing the picture. I love these shoes and every time I wear them someone stops me to ask where I got them! My work requires standing for hours at a time and these shoes offer extreme comfort. If your feet are a little narrow like mine, plan on wearing thicker socks.

I like these shoes very much; however, I should wear a narrow shoe. It is hard to find fine narrows anywhere these days. These do not come in narrow so I chose a shoe with a strap (as I often do). The heel is too wide for my foot so it slips. With the strap I am still able to wear these shoes. It is a better fit when I wear socks. I stand all day in my job. I find the foot bed to be very comfortable.

Love at first step... I absolutely freakin' love these shoes. I am a healthcare worker and am on my feet for the majority of 12 hours constantly moving. These are the FIRST pair of shoes I've ever worn in the hospital that haven't made my feet feel like I've just run a marathon. I hesitated to buy them for a couple of years and I'm so sorry that I didn't sooner. If you're wanting them, get them! You'll be glad you did.

These shoes are extremely huge! I ordered a 37 because I usually wear a 7, but a 35 would probably have been the size that would have fit me. They are so comfortable though, just make sure to get at least a size down from what you usually wear since they run so big.

These are dreamy comfortable! I've gotten several compliments. While looking online I thought they were a sort of rubbed leather/suede finish, they're actually sparkly. When my podiatrist gave me strict guidelines for shoe fitting I was disappointed that at a young age I'd need to go 'orthopedic' looking shoes...but with Alegria I don't have to!
