Alegria is a new shoe brand to me. I discovered it about a year ago on QVC and fell in Love with the looks of their shoes plus that they are of very good quality. Alegria was first made for people who are working in the hospital filed where they are a lot on their feet, standing and walking for hours on end. Later on these shoes could be purchased by anyone. They have many different styles and the middle part of some of their shoes can be taken out, it’s like an insert and new ones can be purchased for about half the price which is great Incase the soles are still intact and not brand new shoes are needed. Alegria is so comfortable and provides a lot of cushion in each step taken. There are velcro straps which makes them adjustable to each foot. I literally live in my shoes, that is how comfortable they really are. If you have any kind of foot problem, back problem or knee problem, Alegria is so worth a try. I highly recommend this brand! My color is called, the good China.
