Their patented, interlocking footbed system features arch support and is loaded with latex, memory foam, and cork to create a uniquely perfect fit every time by forming to the natural contours of your foot.

I wear a size 8 shoe, so I ordered a size 38 Alegria Essence. It was almost an inch too long. I returned the 38 and ordered a 37, my big toe touched the end of the shoe. I guess you could call this shoe a "mis-fit". But, other than this particular shoe, I enjoy my other three pair of Alegria shoes.
order these 1/2 size big with wide width and they were still too narrow for my inserts- ran small
Adorable shoes. The fun color goes with many different outfits. The top of the shoe cut a bit into my foot at the start but the shoe now fits perfectly. Very comfortable.
This style was too tight & didn't fit well at all. They were returned.
Great support. The leather is a beautiful pewter color.
The shoes are beautiful and the bedazzled button is the finishing touch. Loved and wanted to keep the, unfortunately they're a bit too wide for my foot.
This shoe was a super comfortable alternative to high heels. They didn't wind up fitting correctly on my problematic foot. To bad because I could have seen myself wearing these a lot at work...professional, stylish and comfortable. Darn this problematic foot! :(
These were too wide for my heels. I could remove them without untying the laces. If I tighten the laces further, they hurt the top of my foot. I also thought they were really ugly, but I am willing to overlook that to find a pair of black walking shoes to wear with pants. I've been looking for years and can't find a comfortable shoe that fits me.
I had these shoes for a year and they squeaked every time I walked THE ENTIRE time! I think if I'd gotten half size smaller, this might not have been an issue. But who knows for certain. They were incredibly comfortable but I advise wearing with socks to prevent chafing.
Awesome! After trying multiple styles of shoes, I found these. They fit true to size. They were comfortable right out of the box. Very cute. Look a little orthopedic. I wish the strap sat a little higher on my foot. With that aside, I can't help but keep them because they are so comfy.
