Review & Giveaway! - Alegria Shoes


ALEGRIA™ means HAPPINESS.. it is also a new line of fun footwear created by California based company PG Lite.
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 collectable designs, Alegria adds color therapy to your day and its rocker bottom adds spring to your step. Being comfortable in your own shoes never felt like this before.





So I received a pairs of these unique, cute, and SUPER COMFY kicks from Alegria by PG Lite. I couldn't wait to get them on my feet, so I of course immediately put them on, and didn't take them off until I went to bed!  You know how when you get new shoes they aren't usually very comfortable, and you have to break them in. Well as soon as I tried the shoes on I new it wouldn't take long for me to break them in, because they were already comfortable. The thing I liked best  was the amazing arch support I felt when I put them on, and throughout the day. I also think they have a unique design, and I love the butterfly emblem on the shoe. 
I would give these shoes a very high rating, they are quality made, and look quite durable, comfortable, and cute. I initially thought they were a little pricey at $119.00 but upon researching good quality nursing shoes, I quickly learned that you get what you pay for, and when you are going to be on your feet for 12 hours a day then you want to make sure you are wearing the right shoes! Also if you have a wider foot like me you may want to get the slip-on's, I have to wear a very thin sock with mine so my foot fits, because of my big ole Flintstone feet LOL

 I am a nursing student right now, and after my clinical time at the hospital, my dogs are barkin!  I am realizing now the importance of a good quality pair of comfortable shoes! Alegria offers many different types of shoes both professional, and also just cute fun shoes for everyday wear. There are clogs, boots, & sandals! You can check out all their cute shoes here:  Alegria Shoes 

I cant wait to spread the word to my fellow nursing students, and the nurses we work with at the hospital about how awesome Alegria shoes are!

Right now  Alegria is having a Girlfriends getaway contest

These shoes are super cute! I love the sandals. The Alegria Barcelona Butterflies are my favorite but the ones you tried would be great for nursing. And the price isn't too bad. I paid as much for the ones I have now and they can't be resoled. It looks like these ones can, so that would be great. sgr.5678(at)yahoo(dot)com
