What People are Saying About Alegria Shoe ShopWe could toot our own horn and tell you about all the reasons we love Alegria shoes, but we thought you’d get more out of hearing what our customers have to say! What makes Alegria shoes so wonderful? Why don’t we ask the people who actually wear them!
Why Nurses Love Alegria ShoesNurses are notorious for working long hours on their feet, which can make for sore tootsies, aching legs and backaches to boot. But with the right arch support, cushioning and slip-resistant outsoles, Alegria nursing shoes can put all that and your feet to rest. Not only will you feel better, but you’ll look better and perform better, too. Whether you work 8-hour, 10-hour or 12-hour shifts, Alegria shoes can keep you comfortable at work through any shift.
"I am an RN at a local hospital, wearing these shoes actually makes me want to go to work! I only wear them there so it's like an incentive to go in. Just got 2 pair, now I'm up to 5. Thanks for the sales..." -Donna, Massachusetts
"I've tried all the "nursing" shoes and Alegria are the only ones that kept up with me during 12-hour days on my feet constantly in the OR. Just the right cushioning and support. The only problem is that I only have two pairs." -Cathy, Tennessee
Why Doctors and Other Medical Professionals Love Wearing Alegria ShoesYou don’t have to be a nurse to love the way Alegria shoes look and feel. Physicians, surgeons, and even the people who know the most about feet, podiatrists, enjoy the comfort and support they receive when they wear Alegria shoes. Dr. Joseph Tamburrino, a noted New York podiatrist, says that high, rounded toe boxes, maximum shock absorption and supportive insoles are three features that nurses and medical professionals need most in their shoes. Alegria has all three and more! See what some of our physician and nurse practitioner customers have to say about their experience.
"I have been wearing Alegria shoes for over 2 1/2 years. I own 2 pairs of boots, 2 pairs of sandals and 5 pairs of the classics(soon to be 6). As an OBGYN physician they are the only shoes that I wear and recommend on my long days and 36hrs call shift. I've got everybody hooked on them! They are great!" -Ivonne, Alabama
"I am a podiatrist and recommend these to my patients." -Marilyn, Pennsylvania
"I am a nurse practitioner and recommend these shoes to my patients all the time. I love them!" -Robin, Washington State
Why Teachers and Retail Workers Love Alegria ShoesNurses and doctors stand in good company with plenty of other professions when it comes to standing on your feet all day. Teachers and retail workers are also in the top 10 categories of people who stand much if not all of their shift. But unlike medical professionals (even though they like to look good, too), you might need to add stylish looks to your shoes as well as be comfortable when you work in retail or other professions. Not a problem with Alegria-you’ll get fashion, fit and support all wrapped up in one stylish shoe! Just take a look at what this teacher and retail worker have to say.
"I taught school for 30 yrs and discovered your shoes about 3 years ago. I wouldn't wear anything else. They are comfortable, stylish and the kids call them my "funky" shoes. I won't be without them. Thanks!!!!" -Robyn, Georgia
"I'm in retail and love my Alegrias! A proud owner of 5 pair! I can't really wear anything else! LOOOOOOOOVE them!" -Cindy, Iowa
What Hairdressers and Stylists Have to Say About Alegria ShoesOf all the people who stand on their feet all shift, those who work in the salon really need to make an impression while staying comfortable. After all, it’s their job to make you look your best, and how can they do that if they don’t look and feel their best? Alegria shoes make it possible for hairdressers and stylists to forget about their feet and focus on making you look fabulous-at least until their clients ask them about their gorgeous shoes, that is!
"I am a hairdresser & stand all day, love these shoes." -Judy, Tennessee
“My hairdresser recommended Alegria shoes for my tired and sore feet. They are the BEST shoe on the market for being comfortable. I tell all of my friends about them and after they try them on, they LOVE them! I just ordered two more pairs.” -Vicki, Merritt Island, FL
“I met a nurse in the ER and asked her if her shoes were comfortable, she was wearing a pair of the Alegria Classics and I went home and ordered a pair right away. I am a hairstylist and let me tell you, my back, feet and legs don't hurt while I'm on my feet all day. They are so comfortable that I am buying a sandal as well for the spring and summer. I have tried different brands of shoes and these are by far the best I have tried. Thank you so much for making such a great comfortable shoe.” -Christen, Jacksonville, NC

Now doesn’t that just say something if Alegria shoes are stylish enough for you AND comfortable enough for your mom and even your mother-in-law? We think so and so do these satisfied customers!
"These are the best shoes I have ever owned....they have kept my feet/back from hurting after a 12 hour shift! I've even gotten my mom (a teacher) hooked on them!" - Brittany, Alabama
"I bought my first pair of Alegria Shoes in October and then bought my mom a pair for Christmas. I'm an Events Manager and just spent 3 days in our Convention Center on hard floors. Love my shoes and my feet loved being in comfortable shoes. I'm ready for my next pair." -Kathryn, North Carolina
"Just got my first pair- thanks to my daughter-in law's suggestion! I wore them all day Friday and for the first time in years my feet didn't hurt! Thank you- thank you! I'm 55 and now feeling 25 again!" -Jennifer, Louisiana
Why One Pair of Alegria Shoes Just Isn’t EnoughWe know that you’ll benefit from the comfort you’ll derive from Alegria’s signature removable and replaceable footbeds and superior arch support. We know you’ll love the stylish patterns, the carefully crafted looks and features like water-resistant uppers and slip-resistant outsoles. We also know you’ll love the variety of leathers and materials that make these shoes last so long. But our customers say it best when explaining why you won’t be able to stop at just one pair!
"My feet have been so uncomfortable for years and one day I discovered Alegria. My doctor looked at me and said, "now those are the shoes you should have been wearing!". I could not be happier and own 8 pair including boots. Thank you for saving my feet!" -Melody, California
"I have dozens, definitely an addict. I have numerouspairs so I have to be very careful about my feet. These shoes have changed my life!!" - Kristine, Colorado
"Alegria's are the best shoe to wear if you are a professional that stands on their feet for a min of 8-10+ hrs. However, if you're not a professional who stands on their feet this is STILL IS AN AMAZING SHOE for support…you can always get help from the Alegria team, if you call their phone number posted on their website you'll get answers to any questions you might have and you will ALWAYS SPEAK TO A LIVE PERSON ;) I own many pairs of Alegrias …and love, love love, them!" -Lugi
“I wanted to let you know that I now have 3 pairs of Alegria shoes in just 3 weeks. I have had 3 surgeries on each of my feet over the past 27 years. It is painful to walk very much. Within 3 days of wearing the Alegria shoes I was walking pain free - something that I haven't done in 35 years! I can now go to bed without taking pain medication and I don't wake up from pain when I move my foot at night. I can't tell you how much these shoes have done for me. My job includes a lot of walking and then I like to spend time with my teenage boys and husband doing activities that involve walking. I get so many compliments on them, because they look so great as well! Thank you so much!” -Angela, Cadillac, MI
“I bought a pair of the classic Alegria's last winter and wore them most of the time. I was so excited when I saw they had them in sandals. I now own 9 pairs, different styles and different color. I love these shoes. I am an avid shoe buyer. I have even considered getting rid of all my other shoes and just filling my closet with these shoes. I already have a good start filling my closet. If you work on a job that is standing or concrete floors, try these shoes. I definitely would recommend them.” -Charlene, Hendersonville, NC

“I just want to tell you how wonderful your site is. Not only do I love my Alegria's, I would not consider ordering them anywhere else. I am not a nurse, just a busy mom of four children under the age of 7. If I wear any other shoes I am miserable. I have pretty much given up my running shoes for my Alegria's. I actually think they look pretty good with anything from sweats to yoga pants to jeans and skirts. I think I am up to at least six pairs right now. Best of all, I am constantly being asked about my shoes. I carry small slips of paper in my purse that has your web site written down on them. I have been approached anywhere from Paris, under the Arc de Triumphe, to Chick-Fil-A to find out what kind of shoes I was wearing. Most of my friends here in Pittsburgh now have them. Just last week one of my friends ordered four pairs from your site, but I don't feel threatened, each pair is so unique that it is an honor to know I have shown someone else the way to be both comfortable and stylish. Right now, I am deciding which pair of Palomas I have to have. I am probably going to be buying two. Thank you for your wonderful site, product and service. I am addicted to your shoes.” -Beth, Pittsburgh, PA
“EVERY day I am either pulling off my shoes or showing women the website. I work at a leading university in Chicago. Today alone, 6 women wanted the website, 1 sized up the shoes while running, and stopped to get the web address, and 4 women at WaterTower Place, an upscale Mall on Michigan Avenue. At a recent doctor appointment, ALL the nurses went crazy for the shoes, and it delayed my appointment 20 minutes because nurses and staff from other areas wanted to see the shoes--I wondered what the doctor thought about all the commotion. They, like I, know there is no price you can put on a good comfortable shoe (and stylish to boot)!! I am about to order another pair of Mary Janes (okay maybe 2 pairs), and I know all the women at work will go nuts when they come in. Thanks for a great comfortable shoe. I wish I had some of those little butterflies you give with the shoes, but with the website address and contact info, so I can hand them out-think about how much time it would save (me) gobs of time giving out the web address, but there is no substitute for those who want me to take the shoes off to see the footbed. Number One Fan!” -Sandi, Chicago, IL
