Almost perfect! Carina is a great sandal with superior arch support. Even with my painful feet, I find I can wear them all day without trouble. Plus, every time I wear them, everyone wants to know where I got them!The mother-of-pearl accents on the strap are so pretty without being blingy. I really, really like them! The one problem is that I have flat, narrow feet. The adjustable strap must be pulled to its tightest setting to be narrow enough for me. That, of course, moves the decorative accents out to the side of my foot. However, no one knows it should be otherwise, and they still compliment me on my cute shoes. The toe post is comfortable. When I first wore them, I softened the edges of the leather top t-strap (by bending them back and forth) so it didn't irritate my sensitive toes, and it's been perfect ever since. These are my new favorite sandals! (I send everyone to Zappos to find them!). Oh yes -- I wear an 11, and had to get the 42. The 41 was just a smidge too small, letting my toes rub the decorative stitching. The 42 is perfect!

I love Alegria shoes (Paloma is my favorite) and love these super cute sandals, but sadly, am having to return them because they are not wide enough for my feet. I will continue looking at other styles of sandals in hopes of finding one that works.

Love these sandals. They are so comfortable and have excellent arch support. I can wear them all day long and the adjustable velcro strap makes them easy to adjust. I footbed is soft and molds to your foot and I love that it gives you a little height.

I love these sandals. I got the purple leopard print and it's beautiful. Right out of the box, I wore them all day. They have great arch support, mine are high. My heel spurs love this shoe, and so does my lower back! Have already ordered 3 different styles since I bought this sandal. If you have feet problems, or lower back problems, you'll love Alegrias.

Initialy, I thought I might have to return this shoe, fearing it would be too short. I wear a size 12M in just about every shoe, but the european size 42 converts to US 111/2-12, which made me nervous. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the shoe fits perfectly and feels really good! I am very happy with this purchase and happier that I did not have to return it!

These are the most comfortable shoes right out of the box! I put them on and away I went! Lots of compliments, and they don't look chunky. Very comfortable with a cushy footbed.

I admired these on a co-worker for several days before deciding to order. I always wear Dansko clogs during the winter, but just hadn't found a comfortable summer sandal that offered the support of my Danskos. Now I have. The arch support is great and so comfortable for walking and being on your feet all day. I guess I have to admit one of the reasons I admired them on a co-worker is they are actully really cute! And that can be hard to find with support and comfort.

My foot is on the narrow side of medium. The shoe fit well although I had to tighten the strap as much as possible. Very comfortable. No need to break in. Looks good with jeans or skirt. I am picky about comfort and these passed the test. Highly recommend.

I bought these for a friend of mine who was struggling to find dressier sandals in her size. She loves them. She reports that they're incredibly comfortable and has gotten multiple compliments on them.

I have been wearing these shoes for a little over a week now and I'm loving them. I promised myself that I would find something a little dressier than flip flops and with more support. I think I've found my summer shoes. They work great with jeans, capris and skirts and couldn't be more comfortable. I go between wearing a 36 and 37, but the 37 was sold out. I went with the 36 and am glad that I did because they are just right and the 37 would have ended up being too large.

So happy these sandals fit & feel great! I've tried a couple different pair of Alegria sandals in the past and the leather rubbed my foot in a bad way. I LOVE Alegria shoes and was so sad that during the summer I had to give them up. I hurt my foot a few years ago and stumbled upon Alegria Classics which were the only shoes I could wear for 6 months. Since then I have accumulated 3 pair of Classics, 3 pair of Palomas (my favorite), and two pair of Sedona boots. I have metatarsal issues and I can wear Alegrias all day without pain. Besides being incredibly comfortable, they wear like iron. I'm going on nearly 3 years with my first pairs and they still look good and feel good.

I love these shoes. Had several bones fused in my foot and need arch support all the time and these are great. I wear these all the time and can walk/stand without pain for hours. I am not a fan of the "accessories" on the shoes, would like them to be a little more plain, but will sacrifice for comfort and no pain!

Really nice looking thong, and the pewter color is gorgeous. I like that the beads add just enough sparkle, without being overly bling-y. The adjustable top strap is genius. The most comfortable footbed I've ever walked on - one of those shoes you don't want to take off. The only reason I am rating 4 for comfort has to do with the flap that comes down over the toe stalk. It's going to take some breaking in to keep this from rubbing the top of my foot raw. Otherwise, really great sandal.

These were super comfortable straight out of the box. I stand on concrete all day long at work and these keep a spring in my step. The rocker sole and the footbed are supportive to my high arch and kept me from feeling leg and foot pain. I only wish they came in more colors! White or a light silver for summer would be great!
