Let’s face it, when it comes to shoes women know exactly what they want. If you can blend premium style with supreme comfort, mix in a portion of high end fashion and then garnish with a few sprigs of value for money, then you have the recipe for a simply stunning range of shoes that will taste as good as they look. Probably.
On an altogether related note, allow me to introduce you to Alegria Shoes. Launched in the good old US of A by a Californian company called PG Lite – no tea jokes please – the company has spent the last ten years developing a range of unrivalled, comfortable and classy shoes with the aim of bringing elegance and contemporary flair to the ever-evolving world of fashion trends.
The key aim with Alegria has always been keeping a firm focus on weight. All their shoes are designed to be super lightweight, which is where the clever stuff comes in. Combining featherweight sole materials with insoles so unflabby an asthmatic gerbil could easily move them with one feeble cough, Alegria have managed to produce a range of shoes so light yet sturdy you really do need to feel them to believe. Add to that a commitment to making all their shoes, clogs and sandals breathable, flexible and softly cushioned and you’re looking at a brand that genuinely sets itself apart from pretty much anything else that’s out there.
Not just elegant and classy, Alegria Shoes are also fun and funky with a massive range of cool, bright, trendy and highly collectable designs that will add a little colour therapy to your life. On top of that, they are certainly the only shoes this writer has ever come across that have been actively designed to make your feet feel “Happy”. Now before you disregard the aforementioned statement as a load of old twoddle let me give you a little more info.
Alegria Shoes, Clogs and Sandals have been designed and developed with a unique sole unit that has a moderate “Rocking” feature built in, producing a rolling motion when walking which has been proven to help tone up your leg muscles and provide an extra burst of energy when you’re out and about each day. Each shoe features its own patented, anatomical removable footbed and has an inbuilt arch-support packed with latex and super-comfy memory foam giving it a truly unique fit that it is as individual as the foot that fits it!
