I ordered these shoes in the Black Snake and Cognac Burnish Snake colors. There is a big difference in the texture of the leather in these two colors. The black leather is much more soft and pliant than the Cognac leather. Even though they were both size 35 medium width (according to the box and label), the black shoe seemed to have a wider toe box than the Cognac shoe and the leather was more loose, almost like it had been stretched. I felt like I would fall out of the black shoes, so I returned them. (Zappos made returning them very easy.) Note that even though there is a buckle in the strap which is cute, it cannot be adjusted. A little bit of adjustment in the strap is possible because of a velcro hook and loop closure. The strap does have some give because of an elastic piece sewn towards the inside of the shoe. I kept the Cognac colored shoes because the toe box fits my foot perfectly without being tight (I have bunions), the heel is not loose (my heels are narrow), and overall, the shoes are very comfortable. I have been able to walk all over Washington DC plus the 1.5 mile trek home from the Metro Station in these shoes. I have two other Alegria styles: the Paloma in a patent leather and the Classic clog in a suede. The Kyra Professional is the only of these three styles that I can wear all day.

Love, love, love. These are my new favorite shoes. I work in a hospital and wear them everyday. They are roomy in the toe box. So comfortable. They could be a bit more stylish but still look great.

Really wanted to keep these as they're quite cute, but they hit my bunion at just the wrong spot. Ouch! For comfort shoes, you'd think the designer would have considered those of us with problem feet.

Loved these cute, fun shoes... But, for me, the top of the toe end of the shoe rubbed the top of my foot. Bought them to walk all over Venice for a 10 day vacation. Venice means A LOT, A LOT of walking. However, when I tested them at home, the top rubbed my upper foot. Instead, I took my Naot's "Sea." They worked very well and did not rub the top of my foot. They are an alternative, if this cutie does not work for your foot.

These are really cute Mary Janes.The placement of the strap towards the back and the butterfly really kick up the "Edge" factor. I recommend you size up if you are a half-size. I am an 8.5 and the size 38 (slated for 8-8.5) was ridiculously tight, as in, instant searing pain in all areas of my foot as I tried to wedge it into the too-small shoe. I'm bummed I have to send these back.

I usually buy Keen Toyah for my Plantar Fasciitis but decided to Alegria a try. I have a medium to narrow foot so the width was perfect for me. If you have a wide foot, these are not for you. I wear a 10.5 but the left shoe seemed 1/2 size smaller and my big toe was bumping the end. I would suggest a 1/2 size up. Sadly these had to be sent back.

The size that seemed best wasn't. The next size was too big. I can't seem to find "just right" with this brand - a pity, since I like the style and print.

Unlike other Alegria shoes in this size, this style is comfortable and looks good with stockings as opposed to socks. So I tend to wear this with skirts and Capri pants. It is a little on the snug side for anything but the lightest sock. I wear a 39 and am usually a 9. It works with my thin feet and I just put a little petal pad arch support under the Alegria insole. Everyone compliments me and I am happy on my feet operating all day and night! My one quibble is the lining inside the shoe tends to get worn out and fray so I have to color them in with black shoe paint.

Having a limited selection of shoes available to me, due to the need of rather thick orthotics and rather skinny feet, I was excited to find the Kyra. Unfortunately, more normal size 40, in the Kyra was too large, about 1/2" longer than a Naot size 40. In addition they are very wide width across the foot. I will try smaller size, in hopes the width will be smaller as well. Due to the width I am only giving this a four star.

The Alegria Kyra Professional shoes are awesome! I purchased them because I have plantar fasciitis in one foot, and the other foot was experiencing foot pain in the location of a recently healed fracture. The need for new & sturdy shoes was a necessity. They are super comfortable. I don't want to take them off. My foot pain has decreased significantly since I started wearing these every day for work. Prior to purchase I was concerned that I might have an issue with the sizing. I wear a true 6.5 shoe (size 36 fits 6-6.5) but they fit perfectly. As far as beauty, the toe box of the shoe looks a little clunky & wide, but that is a small price to pay in exchange for the benefits of reduced foot pain. The shoes have a buckle in the picture but it is not a functional one. They really fasten with a velcro wrap strap below the buckle. If you consider your feet extra wide (mine are just slightly wide) then this might be a deal breaker for you because the wrap strap does not have a lot of length for adjustment.

Too big for my size 5 foot. It's too wide (and I have bunions), too. Too bad it isn't a real buckle with holes that could adjust or it might have worked.

I had high expectations for these shoes; however, they had a tight fit and the toe box was very shallow. After wearing them around the house for a half hour, the shoes had cut into the top of my foot and left a deep red line. The shoes do have great arch support, which is what I wanted, but are just too snug and uncomfortable.

These are keepers despite being a bit large for me. They are incredibly comfortable and the cross strap allows me to wear them despite being a bit too big.

Overall, I really like the shoes a lot. They were a bit too tight across the top of my foot and on my ankles but I know I have fat feet and expect that they will stretch a little more and be just fine (I did stick spice jars inside them overnight to stretch them initially). Otherwise, they are well made and very comfortable to walk in, Alegria makes good shoes! Also, I'd suggest ordering the size you normally wear even if you have other Alegria shoes - I ordered the size I currently have in the Paloma shoe and it was too small (both length and tightness). I exchanged it for the listed equivalent of my actual shoe size and all was fine.

I really liked so much about this shoe but, I had to return it. I have very wide feet with a deep instep and my left foot is slightly larger than the right. The shoe pinched my pinky toe joint uncomfortably. Other than that, I could tell that they were well-made and the Rome color was beautiful--would go with blacks, browns, golds--a great neutral with a bit of metallic to make it look fun. If you have a just a 'regular' wide and deep foot, this shoe would fit you perfectly.

I usually wear a 9.5, and I needed a 41 in this shoe (the 40s were unbearably short and tight). This shoe would probably be great for someone with wide feet, but they were just too wide for me. The only thing keeping them from flying off my feet were the strap, and after wearing them for any length of time, this really took a toll on my knees. I have much better luck with the Paloma style. They are wide, too, but the placement of the strap makes for a more secure fit.

I ordered this style and the Paloma. The Paloma I fell instantly in love with. This one however was to small, even though it was the same size as the other. The top strap was way to tight too and I don't have fat feet, long ones yes, fat, no. These are going back and I'm getting another pair for the Paloma's!

So sad! These shoes have a limited adjustable strap, and it's high up on the shoe nearer the ankle than expected. A longer amount of hook and loop (velcro) or some kind of elastic in the strap would have helped.

Big fan of Algerians, but not this style. There is not enough height to get you off the concrete floors to stop your legs from hurting. Also the cut of the front part of the shoes cuts into the top part of your foot. I have thin skinny feet too. I wish that I could return these shoes but I've worn them several times for 12 hour shifts and they're still very uncomfortable.

These were awful looking, there was a thick seam right down the center of the toe for some reason. The material is very rough where it meets your foot/ankle. It does not seem like they would be at all comfortable.

I have relative narrow this feet and these shoes are way too tight across the top of my foot. This is a design issue that the manufacturer should address. Others have made this comment and are correct. Can't recommend them at all.
