Alegria Shoe Shop; Fun, Funky & Comfy Shoes {review & giveaway} CLOSED

When I shoe shop I not only shop for looks (shoe design) but I need comfort as well. Being on my feet most of the day a comfortable pair of shoes is a must. I hate to sacrifice comfort for looks as my shoes are a very prized accessory for me. has the answer for the woman who wants a pair of shoes that not only catches eyes but is also comfortable for everyday wear!

Their line of fashionable, fun, funky and oh-so comfortable shoes made by Alegria will have people staring! How do I know? Alegria Shoe Shop sent me a pair of the Peace & Love Palmoa shoes for review! I can not even tell you how many people have stopped me in public to comment on my shoes or ask me where I got them from!

Alegria Women’s Paloma Mary Janes feature an adjustable velcro strap which makes this a comfortable shoe for regular or wide feet. Adorable and versatile, the Alegria Paloma Mary Janes looks great with skirts and dresses for women all ages.

Alegria is developed with technical features that promote health and wellness. Its simple slip-on ergonomic construction suits the relaxed California lifestyle. A heavenly padded footbed really feels like you are walking on clouds. Made with leather in a variety of bright, up-beat collectible designs, Alegria adds color therapy to your day and its rocker bottom adds spring to your step.

{Some of My Favorites From The NEW Spring/Summer Line}

For review I received the adorable Peace & Love Paloma style shoes. Alegria created The Paloma Collection to put a twist on the classic Mary-Jane style of shoe. Featuring signature Alegria rocker outsole and supportive footbed, the Paloma Collection is available in an array of colors and materials that transform this classic style into a fun, funky and superbly comfortable shoe you would expect from Alegria.

I own way more pairs of shoes than I’ll ever admit, but this shoe is my go-to shoe when I need a comfortable shoe! I have worn these shoes multiple times for hours at a time. The inside of the Paloma shoe is nothing but pure cushion that almost conforms to your foot for an ultra comfortable walk. These are one of the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever worn!

The Peace & Love shoe pattern is on a black patent and features some 70’s style whimsical graphics. Peace signs, suns, flowers and verbiage give these Palomas a funky flair that I adore. I would not consider myself a hippy, but this design really caught my eye. Not only did it catch my eye, but it catches the eye of strangers in public OFTEN. I have been asked countless times what kind of shoes they are or where I got them from. Apparently women really do pay a lot of attention to other womens shoes.

Really- I have been stopped in the mall, at Wal-Mart and even at the baseball field by ladies asking about these shoes! My shoes have become a conversation starter!

The Mary Jane style allows these shoes to be worn as a casual shoe or a more dressy shoe. I have worn the Alegria Paloma shoes with jeans, a jean skirt, shorts and even a sun dress. I love how versatile these shoes are and the fun design adds some pep to my step!

{What I Love About The Alegria Paloma Mary-Jane Shoes}

  • 1st and most importantly the Paloma is a well made shoe!
  • They are available in several fun designs.
  • The Velcro strap is easy to open and shut and stays in place all day (no need to adjust)
