These shoes are incredibly comfortable! I have an occasional bout of plantar fasciitis so am always on the lookout for shoes with great arch support The Alegria Seville fit the bill! The first day I used the strap around my ankle, thinking I might have trouble wearing them as clogs since they have a higher platform than I'm accustomed to. After that first day I have worn them as clogs -- very easy to walk in and absolutely no stress on my feet or legs. Remarkable! I wear 8.5 to 9. They run a little small but not enough to require me to go up to the next size. They are a little clunky looking but so am I so they work for me! Great with long skirts and slacks. Very happy with this purchase and of course the customer service from Zappos is awesome! Thank you!

I love these! I have another pair of Alegria, and also love them, for both comfort and style. I have a bunion, so need to be picky about widths, as well as comfort. These are cute, a little edgy, and so comfortable for standing and walking all day. They also give height without a heel, which is hard on bunion feet.

I have a very high instep so this style is difficult for me but with the elastic they are very comfortable. I also have a bunion and very wide feet. This brand has been a great benefit to me and they are cute too.

I have mad love for this brand of shoes. They are the only shoes I can wear without an orthotic. I have recently developed plantar fasciitis in one foot, along with a bone spur, and neuromas in both feet. These are the only brand of shoes that feel perfect for every problem I have. I did order these from Alegria's site because I wanted the pewter black tumble in a wide option, and I couldn't get them on here, but my other Alegria's were purchased on Zappos. I wear an 8-8.5 and I have the Bella in a 38 and I feel that its a tad short, esp with socks, so I ordered the 39. They are looser with bare feet but perfect with socks, esp thick winter socks. I love the color too, because I can wear them with anything. This is my fourth pair of Alegrias and I hope to buy more! I prefer a mary jane style because I have a very high arch and sometimes regular shoes can be hard to put on or feel snug, and I can custom fit a mary jane. The velcro stays put as well with plenty of room.

Fit, style, wear and craftsmanship are all very good. I wear an 8 medium and ordered accordingly. Right out of the box the shoes were a bit stiff and tight but they broke in within a few days. I've worn them every day for 3 months. These are more comfortable than Dansko's because they are well built but lightweight. Plus the cork and gel insoles have formed to my feet and are very comfortable. Plus the insoles can be replaced. They are not sloppy so I haven't had to use the additional heel strap. By the way I have a form of arthritis called spondylitis which causes chronic plantar fasciitis. These are shoes I can wear and walk in everyday more comfortably than most.

Although I love the style of this shoe, I found the weight of the shoe to be too heavy for me. Wish they could be as light as the Mary Jane Styles that I wear. Please make a lightweight sole and I am sure to try it again!

I found these clogs incredibly uncomfortable. I was excited that they are lightweight, slip-resistant and stylish. However, I had to rate them a 1 star for comfort. I have been a nurse for over 10 years and I am constantly on my feet. I am very disappointed with Alegria - for this price I expect comfort to last my entire shift. Instead, after an hour or two my legs are already tired and my feet are sore. Unfortunately I have worn them so they cannot be returned. Buyer beware.

These shoes are extremely comfortable. I normally require a D width and these felt fine. The style is quite chunky. Cute rather than dressy.

When I was advised to wear a rocker-bottom shoe I went online and found the Alegria brand. They were great for my plantar fasciitis and bunion, my feet hadn't felt so good in a very long time. However, soon after getting my shoes I noticed that they squeaking. I contact the company that makes them and was told there was a problem in the manufacturing process that caused the squeaking and was given new insoles for each of the 4 pairs of Alegria shows that I owned. I was advised to remove the old insole, take out the felt liner and insert the new insoles. I was not able to get the felt liner out, and the woman at the shoe repair shop had a very difficult time doing one pair and didn't want do to the other 3. I contacted the company again and after shipping my other 3 pairs of shoes back to them (at my expense) they replaced all 3 pairs. I find now that the 1 pair of Pesca's (a pair that was replaced by the company) that I've been wearing recently is squeaking, again. I'm at a loss. These are expensive shoes to begin with, and even though I got 3 new pairs of shoes at no cost, I'm still not satisfied because 1 new pair, at least, has started squeaking again. It's very difficult to find shoes that are comfortable for me, and the brand that I thought was the perfect solution, squeaks. I wonder if anyone else has had a similar experience. While the shoes have some very good features and are comfortable, it's hard to ignore the squeaking.

I have been looking for quite awhile for a pair of shoes for work other than tennis shoes. I am an RN and on my feet a lot for my job. I read the reviews of many many shoes and chose the Alegria Belle because of a couple things that were mentioned. First the shoe is great for support. I also have problems with plantar faciitis and it was mentioned in one of the reviews that this helped someone. Also it tends to run a bit wide which is such a plus for me since my feet are wide. I wear a size 6 and need wide which is always a hard find in shoe stores. Once I got the shoes I was interested to see how well they would do. I have been wearing for 3 weeks now to work and what a difference in my feet throughout the day from day one. I have even wore them out other than work because they look great. The shoe gives great support. I have not had any problems with plantar faciitis since I began wearing them and they felt comfortable from the first day. They are wide enough from the first time on and don't have that pinched feeling until the shoes "stretches". The shoes look great, feel great to wear and are very light in comparison to others I have tried. I like of look of them and they seem very well made.They easily wipe off and keep their appearance. I also loved the quickness of Zappos delivery and guarantee. I definitely will be buying more. I am thankful that others took the time to write their reviews to help me in my choice of a new shoe.

Almost kept these, the are cute, but as with almost all shoes, the incline was a little steep for me. I wish shoe manufacturers would make this type of a shoe with the front being about 1/2" higher, so that the incline is more level. Only issue with this pair other than that is the leather had a very slightly plastic-y look to me which I'd expect from a less expensive shoe.

I have terribly flat feet that require surgery. I wear very thick custom orthotics and wanted a shoe I could put them in for work. Unfortunately, these don't work with my orthotics. When I remove the insole and place the orthotics in the footbed, my foot literally falls out of the shoe and is pushed forward in the shoe awkwardly. I tried leaving the insole in and placing my orthotics on top, but my foot didn't fit into the shoe at all. I even tried using a thinner insole from an athletic shoe with the orthotics and I still didn't get a good fit. If you're looking for shoes to accommodate custom orthotics that are rather bulky, be warned, these may not be for you! Also, the style of these shoes were a bit masculine for my taste.

Oh, I love these boots. For some time, Alegrias have been my go-to shoe. I have issues with my metatarsal area and Alegria shoes are about the most comfortable for my feet. But mostly they're a kind of clunky-cute. Not bad, but...these boots! So cute! And they feel great! I expect to wear them with jeans and pants, casual and dressy, all fall and winter. If you are younger and slimmer than I am, they might look cute with tights and some skirts, too. I usually wear a 38 in Alegrias, but unless you plan on wearing thick socks, size down. A 37 works for me in these with a medium sock.

I love this shoe so much that I own it in 3 different colors. It is instantly comfortable and totally adjustable. It also provides support for your arches. It does run a little bit large, so I wear a 10, but in this shoe I bought a 9.

Love this shoe! Looks funky and not frumpy,but comfortable for walking. I have bad knees and heel issues and this shoe lets me walk with minimal discomfort. Very good arch support also.

This is the first review I have ever written so clearly I feel strongly about the design flaw with the side rivets on this shoe. I was so excited to purchase these great looking loafers and was very disappointed when I realized that they were just too uncomfortable to keep. Big bummer!!

Well, I got mine pair but my feet were fitting in them equally. One of my feet was okay, the other hardly could get into the other shoe. I personally do not have this problem often though I am aware that one foot is stronger than the other usually. I have to get a size up. By the way, my size is 7.5 to 8 depending on style of the shoes. So I went for 38 (8 to 8.5) but that was not enough and it seems I need a whole size up instead of an half only. I am a bit worried that it will look bulky but I really wanna see at this point, are they as comfy as others say so or not?

These boots fit okay but they hit my arches in an uncomfortable way. The sole appears to be designed by high arches, and they just hit my feet in the wrong place. This could just bey feet. It was nice to find a wide shoe with a very wide toe-box, but I had to return these.

Awesome, comfy, shoes! I purchased the Alegria Bree oxford for the long days standing at work in my medical office. They have made a huge difference in how my feet feel at the end of the day. For me, a tie shoe helps keep the shoe snug and supportive. They are lightweight and flexible; unlike my Danskos. I only wish they came in a bootie version too!

I love these shoes! I wanted a shoe I could go to special occasions and to church and my feet not get sore. I was tired of going to wedding and my feet killing me within an hour or two. These shoes are very comfortable and fit the bill. I bought them in Black and they are very stylish. I highly recommend these shoes!
