American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Accepted
Over 35 years ago, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) established its Seal of Acceptance Program to inform both podiatric physicians and consumers about products whose quality, safety and effectiveness allow for normal foot function and promote good foot health. The APMA approval board, which is made up of 10 podiatrists, wore Alegria products for 30 days and tested for comfort, shock absorption and durability. As of 2019, Alegria by PG Lite® has been recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) and earned the Seal of Acceptance on selected styles.
Support and Fashion Rolled into One!
No more dull and boring orthopedic shoes here. You’ll find snazzy prints, tempting textures and adorable adornments atop finely crafted shoes that support your every step. Standing tall won’t be difficult because these fashion-forward choices feature the signature
Alegria footbed (or insole) that provides comfort and support.
Constructed of cork, leather and memory foam, the footbed cushions your step to help prevent shock to your foot, ankle and leg. Conforming to your foot, it also provides a supportive base for your sole with a gentle rocking motion that’s less stressful on your body. Combined with slip-resistant outsoles, Alegria shoes stand up to the longest of shifts with less worry of slips or falls for whatever your shift may bring.
Alegria full-rocker bottom styles offer:
- Slip-resistant and non-marking Classic Rocker outsole engineered to roll naturally. This encourages proper posture and a more natural walking motion.
- Longevity with removable and replaceable footbeds.
- Footbed made from a blend of memory foam, cork, and polyurethane, and will mold to your feet giving you comfort and support unique to you.
- Hand stitched style with a leather lining and a stain-resistant coating applied to the leather upper.
The Secret is in the Outsole and Patented Footbed!
