A colorful pattern alone does not make a shoe an "Alegria." It is our footbed -- the foundation of our shoes -- that makes Alegria stand out from the rest. You will feel the difference in comfort and support from the minute you put on a pair, and here's why:
- Patented interlocking technology secures footbed to outsole
- Engineered with cork, soft polyurethane & memory foam with leather cover
- Conforms to natural contours of the feet to create customized arch support
- Available in medium or wide width option
- American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) Accepted.
Please note: Certain Alegria Sandal styles require a smaller size footbed. If you're not sure of what replacement size to order, please check for the European size at the bottom of your current footbed or contact an Alegria Representative to find out.
These replaceable footbeds are what make my Alegria shoes last that much longer. I remove them from the shoes after wearing so that the shoes and the footbeds dry out - my shoes never smell.
Fit and felt comfortable right from box to my feet.
I bought the classic medium after ordering the Valerie closed heel tie front sandal with the wide width. This was my first Alegria shoe and the wide footbed is lower not wider (the sandal it turns out is wide enough by design for my bunions), which made my foot sit too low in the closed heel. So first I ordered the high arch footbed, which I think I will end up using in the sandal, but when my feet are tired, and while the high is still molding to my foot, it seems a bit too high on one foot. So, I decided to try the classic medium, on sale, and it was comfortable right out of the box! I am surprised at how comfortable all 3 versions of the footbed are. I’ve put the low inside an athletic shoe that I wear indoors and it gives it more toe room. I’m gradually breaking in the high arch footbed and alternate between wearing that one and my custom orthotics in the Valerie sandal. Often, after walking for exercise in my very supportive, NB 1540 athletic shoes with my custom orthotics, I come home, do some foot stretching and massaging, and then wear the Valerie sandal with this classic medium. My feet are still supported but this comfortable footbed allows them to relax—a spa-like feeling. I watched the med techs in a hospital medical complex walking in various Alegria shoes, looked these shoes up, and am delighted Alegria makes a closed heel tie sandal and a variety of affordable, supportive footbeds.
I love that these replacement footbeds bring new life to my favorite Alegria shoes. It is like having brand new shoes each time I get a new set of footbeds. The life of my Alegria shoes has been extended by years with this option.
