Each pair of Alegria shoes are hand-stitched and made from genuine leather and suede with their signature rocker bottom outsole.

Beautiful, quality shoes...look exactly like the picture online! I am new to Alegria and just bought a few pairs for work. The European sizing seems to leave a gap (35=5-5.5 and 36=6-6.5) and I am solidly in between. For me, the 35's are a better fit, but they are a little small. I'm guessing the leather will stretch a little with wear.
I just received them they're so adorable and very comfortable I absolutely love them and I'm so excited
I just received my shoes they are so adorable I love them so much and there are so comfortable I'm so happy and excited you're so beautiful
Excellent fit, Stunning shoe! Returning: used to wear "rockers", but @ 77 can no longer do so! Thank you!
Love these. So far this is the only kind of shoes that I can wear to work that I don't feel crippled in. They're not the most attractive shoe I've ever seen, buy they make up for any style short comings with their comfort.
I wear a 10 medium but my left foot is longer than my right. I was sent a size 40 (equivalent to American size 10) but they were a bit too short, especially on the left foot. The leather is thick and stiff and I could not get my foot into the shoe without completely undoing the strap, which was hard to do as the buckle would not slide over the Velcro. A size 41 might fit better but nothing will change about the stiff leather and difficult strap, so I am returning and not exchanging the shoe.
Great shoes but I followed the advice in the reviews and ordered a size larger than my normal shoe size. I wish I hadn't as they were way too big. I would say they run true to size.
I wanted these shoes to work so badly but they are just too narrow for my foot. Definitely order up a size.
Based on feedback that this shoe felt a half size smaller, I ordered a half size larger than I normally do. However, the toe box was still too small and crowded my toes. Customer service was awesome in making the exchange to a full size larger than I normally wear. The shoe is cute. Haven't worn it too much yet, but it seems comfortable enough.
The 38 Wide almost fits -- toe hits the top. 39 Wide is WAY to big and not nearly as wide as the 38 Wide. A shame -- these are beautiful work shoes!
