For years I heard from friends about Alegria shoes. They told me they are the most comfortable shoes they own. Some own three or four pairs! Two friends, a nurse, and a hairdresser, both on their feet for hours at a time at work, say they are comfortable the whole day long. A woman at my gym wears them on the treadmill. So, I finally gave them a try. The bottom line – I love these shoes! I have flat feet and bunions, which makes wearing almost any shoe very uncomfortable.
Alegria shoes come in a wide variety of styles, colors, and patterns for both men and women. When I decided to try a pair, I went with their walking shoes with their TRAQ system. These shoes with the TRAQ system come with a microchip in the heel that counts your steps upon connecting to their app. The pair I chose were black with a great floral design on the tongue and back and polka dot shoelaces (Polka dot shoelaces -love it!)
I first tried the shoes just walking around – in the house, on errands, on a picnic, etc. They provided good support and were so comfortable I forgot I had them on! Usually, I am acutely aware of my shoes because my feet usually hurt. Next, I tried them on a two-mile walk around my neighborhood with no problem at all.
The step tracker is a nice bonus and a very cool feature. I love knowing how many steps I take, and the app is simple to set up and connect to the chip. The only issue I experienced was the steps were not counted in areas with poor wi-fi, but that’s to be expected.
I have a new spring in my step! These shoes are great for those with or without foot problems. Highly recommend.
