too large but will order in smaller size
The sizing seems to be strange on this Alegria shoe. I ordered my regular size but could not even get the shoes on my feet. Cute shoes but a strange fit.
Comfy and cute!
I needed a comfy black shoe to wear to work in an office setting. I feel like it's an older style when I was wearing them and they didn't feel young on me and I bought them when I was 30. The black started to come off after 6 months of use. I like them but don't love them.
I love these shoes. I am on my feet ALL day and these never tire my feet. They fit amazing, the support is amazing. I want more pairs. The are adorable and I get soooo many complements.
Besides being flat footed, I have several medical issues with my feet, which makes it extremely difficult to find shoes. Because I was so pleased with these shoes, I bought another similar pair.
These are my second pair of alegria shoes. They are so comfortable - just the best if you are on your feet all day and also need stability. The fit was exactly the same as my other pair. I didn't have any problem with the back strap being too short - which I worried about due to another review. I selected the Hickory color and the leather is just beautiful. The stitching in gold is immaculate and matches the rings that adjustment straps pass through. Even though I already own a pair of alegria (pesca) I was impressed with how well-made these shoes are and how great they fit right out of the box. They are very cute and will go with most of my wardrobe. The only thing that surprised me a bit was that they are very clog like when looking down at them, meaning that they seem wide across the toe in appearance. The pierced leather relieves the large area of leather there and is a nice design element, but I guess I thought they would look thinner from seeing them online. Not a problem for me though, because I do like clogs and comfort is paramount. I plan to buy another pair in a different color.
I ordered this shoe hoping it could replace my Golden Gate Dansko's. Nope. The leather wore out pretty quickly and appears cracked at where you foot naturally bends. These look like a pair of bad orthopedic shoes.
Comfortable and well made, I will wear these often for casual use. The Tetrus Blue color is a very dark and shiny blue-gray rather than a true blue. If in doubt about size, go up: I wear a 10 and the 41 (10.5) was just right.
It's true that these shoes are very wide in the toe box and comfortable in that sense, but wow are they just unattractive. I was hoping the faux leather black would look professional, but the bright silver stitching makes it look much more childish and if nothing else, that unnecessary band around the entire shoe just adds to the visual width. In comparison, the SoftWalk lines will look a bit slimmer on an already wide toe.
