Alegria Shoes Review
If you know me, you know that I am a shoe fanatic. I think I may have a lot more shoes than I should and admittedly- I am a shoe ADDICT.
So, when Alegria shoes asked me to review a pair of their fabulous shoes, I of course happily obliged and maybe did a happy dance too.
Okay, I did!
And I did lots of happy dances while floating on clouds but, I’ll tell you about that later.
Well, I was more than elated to see the box waiting for me and I was incredibly anxious to see the gorgeous shoes that awaited my feet! I chose a pair of sandals from the Madrid collection. They looked super cute in the Fall Catalogue and I figured that they would be double functional.
I would be able to use them for the remainder of the summer weather with a pair of shorts or a cute skirt AND I’ll be able to use them into the fall with a pair of leggings, a cute top, and a cardigan! Check out other fashion tips, we have plenty!
The Alegria Madrid shoes are made from patent leather, come with a stretch band in the toe box which means it will fit any width. The inner lining is also made of leather and it is hand sewn. If you look at the design you can see that it is quality and you can appreciate the attention to detail that was put into making the shoe.
The stitching is immaculate, not one stitch is out of place or out of alignment. One of THE best things and I think what really sold it for me is the removable footbed system. It is made out of latex, memory foam and cork! You know when you hear memory foam that it means comfort.
So without further adieu, I will introduce you to my newest kicks!
So, what comes next?
Well, trying the shoes on and taking them for a spin. One thing you can say about Alegria shoes is that they are fabulously unique. If you are familiar with Alegria and now you will be, you will know an Alegria design when you see one. One of the most defining things about Alegria shoes is their fantastic soles, there are many widths to choose from too.
So, if you are into a more daring look you can choose a wider sole or if you’re into a more subtle look you can get a thinner sole. There are plenty of styles to choose from, to check out Alegria’s Fall Collection and the wide variety of sandals, nurse shoes, boots, and Mary Janes, visit them over on their website, here. They have vibrant colors and textures, from animal prints to floral, there’s something for everybody!
What do I think of my pair of Alegria’s?
I stepped into these heavenly kicks and it was as if I was floating on clouds, no joke. These shoes have a bit of a wedge/heel. They aren’t completely flat but, it sure felt like I was walking in flats. The only difference was that I was walking on marshmallows every step of the way. The footbed of the shoe shapes to your foot, I guess that could be attributed to the memory foam, latex, and cork. You can definitely feel that in action, they are so comfortable. The strap is great too, I adjust it to where I need it and it doesn’t leave a mark or chafe my skin either.
Another bonus that I noticed by wearing these shoes is that the toe box is wide, which is a good thing, It doesn’t squeeze your toes together tightly or rub your pinky leaving you sore.
You know what I’m talking about ladies, it ain’t pretty and it doesn’t feel so hot either.
But, none of that with my Madrid’s! This shoe is made to be an everyday shoe, perfect for doing errands or for full-day shopping trips. I used them all day and they were amazing and I’ve been using them with a variety of different outfits and they look super cute!
I think my next pair will be a pair of the Carina Toe Thongs for summer. And since my tootsies can use some love at work, I’ll probably get a pair of nursing shoes from the Donna collection in Friends Pink. They are so fabulously fun for work!
It can’t be argued that these shoes are quality, the only downside would be their unique shape. After all, unique is beautiful and confident. In my opinion, they are absolutely FAB but, it is up to you to decide! I do have to tell you though, that they are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own. I have lots to compare with. The soles are made in this shape to encourage a normal walking motion. It reduces stress on your muscles, joints, and backs.
So, UNIQUE does have many benefits!
Last but, not least one of my favorite things about Alegria is that they promote green living.
They use all recycled materials for all their packaging. They encourage their patrons to go the extra mile and recycle the box to make the earth a happier place! And they also came with this super adorable keychain, it can be placed as a key topper too.
You can see all of Alegria shoes online at Alegria by PG Lite Canada and buy them online at The Shoe Girls. You can also find a list of retailers near you, here. They start at $99 and up.
