I love these shoes they feel like I have my house shoes on so very comfortable. I wanted to order another pair but they must have sold very quickly as many of the sizes were not available. They had beautiful flowers with a black background. I would highly recommend these shoes for beauty and comfort.
I’m fortunate to own several pairs of Alegria shoes and really love the exceptional comfort, quality, and great design of them. I have spine problems plus neuropathy and must wear shoes that offer excellent support, so I was delighted to find Alegria shoes. I really like the Duette style so far and I think they will be a fun addition!
I have been searching high and low for a vegan nursing shoe that would also rank high on the comfortability scale. My feet are very sensitive, and I usually do not have patience for any shoes that require breaking in. These shoes required zero break-in time! They were comfortable from the minute I slipped them on. I did size up about a half size (I normally wear an 8-8.5 depending on the shoe but went up to a 9 and wear thick socks with the shoes). They are not tight—just snug enough and do not slip off when I walk. I have walked 12-16 hour days in these shoes with absolutely no foot pain. I have run down the hallways with them with no issue. It has only been a few weeks, so I will return to update my review once I can accurately judge the longevity of these shoes.

Full disclosure, I won these in an Instagram give-a-way.
But I own only Alegria shoes, so I'm comparing these to my other shoes. I have SEVERE arthritis in my feet, had a joint fused together. And I have pretty severe back issues. So having good quality shoes is a must for me. After my foot surgery, every single nurse was wearing Alegrias so I knew I needed to check them out. Usually my go-to is the Debra which is an absolute solid winner, or the Courtney which is also super solid. (I also own sandals, boots, and slip-ons, all with the solid rocker bottom). When I first put on the Duettes, I was worried they wouldn't work because they don't have the super solid rocker bottom as the others. Boy was I wrong. These shoes are SO comfortable. They are super light, and fight like a glove..but still have some give for when my feet swell. I put them on and went for a walk and didn't have any pain! I basically haven't taken these off since I got them. It doesn't feel like I'm wearing shoes, they just are part of my feet! I get so many compliments on the design. They are perfect for inside the house, the patio, going for a walk, and I can't wait to use them when traveling. They are just the perfect all-around shoe!
