Dream Fit™ Collection
Alegria Shoes has wowed us again with the introduction of their new Dream Fit™ Collection. As a shoe company, Alegria Shoes strives to design footwear that is not only stylish and colorful but also extraordinarily comfortable. From their breathable leather uppers to their patented memory foam blended replaceable insoles (and we can’t forget that it’s all supported on a stable, mild rocker outsole) the name Alegria has become synonymous with comfort. Now Dream Fit™ has taken this mission to new heights.
The Dream Fit™ upper carefully blends leather and open cell neoprene to create a perfect fit for your feet. Neoprene—yes, the fabric used in the construction of wetsuits—is the perfect accommodating fabric for your feet. Neoprene is manufactured in sheets consisting of millions of tiny air bubbles. When left unlined the fabric is called ‘open cell’ and is both breathable and stretchy, two wonderful features for a comfort shoe. How so? By removing much of the semi structured leather upper on the vamp, or top of the shoe, and utilizing neoprene instead your toes (bunions, hammertoes, and all) have a soft, accommodating fabric draping over them instead of something more rigid.
The Dream Fit™ Collection may just be a lifesaver for those with foot ailments such as bunions and hammertoes. Bunions, those bony protrusions at the base of your big toes, affect approximately 36 percent of us over the age of 65. Research shows that we may have grandma and grandpa to thank for them as genetics seems to play a role in who develops the condition.
Hammertoes, where the joint of a toe is buckled or turned downward, are often aggravated by ill-fitting shoes that rub the top portion of the toe resulting in inflammation, pain, calluses or worse. Podiatrists recommend shoes that provide superior arch support and relieve pressure across the toes. The Dream Fit™ Collection from Alegria Shoes fits the bill.
Looking for a pair for the office? Try the Maya in Delicut for a chic take on the classic black mary jane or the Holli Spiffy in Navy. If you prefer a more tailored look go for the Madi oxford style lace-up in Floral Notes or Interlockin' Choco. And we’re sure that the new Dani will become a fast favorite around nurses stations or doctor’s office as the tops are still stain-resistant and the full rocker bottom provides tons of support.
