I have been wearing these shoes in the ICU for 2 years now and they just are so comfortable. I stand for 13 hours straight. Wear with knee high vascular support 20-30mmhg and you are good to go. No foot pain, or fatigue. I have nothing bad to say except I wish they were made in USA.
I've had numerous pairs of the Alegria Keli's in the and found the sizing to sometimes be inconsistent. These were true to size but were really stiff. :o( Though they are comfy to "step ON" I know from in the past that they break in can take a lot of time and sometimes be almost non existent based on the different types of material. Didn't want to have to tough it out in hopes that this may or may not break in well.
Alegria are comfortable shoes and with them using genuine leather, it's easy to break their shoes in because as we all know, leather stretches. These felt so narrow. I ended up giving them away. They were cute but so uncomfortable to my feet.
This was first time to try Alegria. I so hoped they would be "the ones". They did not have the support I needed for my plantar fasciitis and bone spur. I'll try Dansko now. The top part was also very stiff. Thanks to Zappos for their exchange service.
Now I know what walking on Cloud Nine feels like. My feet are comfortable, cushioned, swaddled and there is great arch support. The Embossed Rose is classy and can be worn at work or more casually. I have had heel pain and nephropathy. Inserts have helped a little, but nothing like this. I also appreciate the process of filtering by Zappos for just the right shoe. And they have shoes for wide feet no less. This is only my second Zappos order and I couldn't be happier. I must be because I rarely right reviews.
I have a couple pairs of Allegrias. I absolutely love the comfort and style. I have had a pair of Palomas that have held up for years and I still get positive comments about them every time I wear them. I recemtly ordered the Paloma in Gypsy Rose. They are much brighter, shinier than pictured. While I love Allegria patterns in general, this one didn't do it for me. I am returning.
Really wanted to like these but they are too wide in the heel.
Happy Feet! I LOVE this new Autumn 2017 style from Alegria in Pewter Finery! Summer of 2017, I bought the sandal with similar sole, etc and loved those so I knew I would love this oxford as well. Appreciate the comfort and fit without the stiff sole like so many other styles from this maker. Wore this pair right out of the box, just like the sandals. True fit both length and width. Cute as can be. And light weight. What more can a gal ask for?
VERY wide shoe overall, my foot slides all over the place in this pair of shoes. Sorry have to return.
Very tight across the top of the foot.
