Alegria Footwear

Alegria footwear is the New Kid on the Block but the stylish and comfortable shoes are rapidly making an impression. For those who love innovative design combined with passionate colors and unique patterns, Alegria Shoes are fast becoming popular footwear for women and, recently, men leading a busy lifestyle but desiring comfort. This shoe option is not just about style, though. The technology used in this collection of shoes helps ensure your feet receive the attention they need

This company launched its line of shoes in 2008. At the time, the company launching the shoe line was one of the most well known and well respected providers of quality footwear, named PG Lite. The company focuses specifically on creating therapeutic footwear. The company's goal is to provide consumers with a type of shoe that will make them feel happiness because the shoes make your feet feel relaxed and comfortable, no matter how many hours of the day you are on them.

One of the things that makes this shoe company different from the rest is its believe that shoes should do more than just support your feet. They should make you happy. To help you in that way, the company uses bright colors and great prints on many of its shoes. The reason for this is simple: Alegria shoes bring a smile to your face for many reasons.

What Are Alegria Shoes?

Alegria shoes are the products of Pepper Gate Footwear. The basic translation for the word “Alegria” is happiness. The company started the manufacture of Alegria Shoes with 1 goal in mind – to make everyone’s feet happy. PG Lite debuted the Alegria brand of footwear in March 2008. Since this time, the company has produced several lines or collections of shoes in a number of different stylish colors, patterns and styles.

There are a few things to keep in mind about these shoes. One of them is that each of the shoes features hand stitching detail on them. In addition, each shoe incorporates the company's genuine leather and suede textures. The company is known for their rocker bottoms, which help to cushion and support the feet when you are walking. These shoes also feature a system to keep your feet just as happy as you are.


What Do Alegria Shoes Do?

The intent of Alegria Shoes is many-fold. The shoes are to be fun and fashionable. The many colors are for the wearer to enjoy. The swirls and patterns enliven the surfaces of these clogs, sandals and thongs.

The Alegria Shoe is also about comfort. This footwear design is meant to help the owner to relax. It helps prevent achy and sore feet. The shoe also encourages you to walk properly. Correct posture is one way of ensuring your body and your feet are working as a single, healthy unit. The stability of Alegria Shoes also helps the individual relax and walk. In fact, this shoe is all about happy feet.

How Do Alegria Shoes Work?

The design for Alegria Shoes works at different levels to ensure your foot is properly supported and contained. Technical features focus on the insole, the outsole, the bottom and the depth.  The company refers to the design concept as the Perfect Fit Footbed system.

The Perfect Fit System is based on construction of footbeds engineered to mimic the anatomical shape of your foot. While the shape of the footbed follows the natural form of the foot, it also supplies concrete support where it is necessary. The material utilized is a combination of cork, Latex and Memory Foam. The actual footbed is removable. This allows you to easily clean the surface then place it back in the shoe.

Who Wears Alegria Shoes?

Alegria Shoes are newbies in the footwear world. They are slowly beginning to increase their profile. To date, they are a major sponsor for the 2009 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in the United States. A certain percentage of the profit from sales of Alegria Shoes is going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

So, who is wearing them? It could be just about anyone. These shoes add the level of support most people need, but do not have. In addition to this, these companies also focus on providing a stylish, contemporary look to their shoes. That means that you can really enjoy these shoes if you are wearing them to the office, on a run or if you are going out for dinner. You could be wearing these shoes, too, especially if you want a high quality shoe that will last for a long time.

Typology

The first thing that strikes you about Alegria Shoes is the wide range of colors and patterns. These are vibrant, lively and explosive. From basic 2-tone Sevilles, Alegria Shoes branch out in a vast riot of colors. The Milano collection comes in 10 colors while the Classic is available in around 25 color combinations and patterns.

The sizes vary. They provide plenty of wiggle room for the toes. There is not yet a line of Alegria Shoes for children. The shoes are only for women and, recently, men.

There are several different models of Alegria Shoes. The list continues to grow. Below are the major types currently available. Remember, new products will come on to the market as well. Each one is likely to have new features and a new look for you to enjoy.

 

Classic Alegria Shoes

This is the original Alegria Shoes. Debuting in 2008, they feature the standard design of all Alegria Shoes. This staple has a removable insole, anatomically correct footbed and a rocker outsole. The Classic has the extra depth around the toes for a roomier fit as well as a flat and stable bottom.

The Classic set the standard for all the Alegria Shoes to come. It comes in up to 25 different hues and patterns. These include Black Snake, Team Green, Swirl Suede and Peace and Love.

Who should wear this particular type? This is a great type of shoe for the girly girl. It is a good option for those who want a quality shoe that dresses up their look. Choose different colors to add true character to the shoes. You may also want to invest in these shoes if you need a safer, more comfortable fit that gives you added support.

What does the Alegria Classic really offer? It is the clog shoe that started the trend, the company states. This shoe's all leather composition really sets it apart from the rest, because it includes moisture wicking control. That will keep you feet dry even on the most humid of days. In addition, the shoe has a combination cork and latex footbed in it. This gives it the flexibility to form to your foto properly, giving you more support, too. The fully adjustable strap is another reason to buy this shoe over other products. You remain in control here, and  you can enjoy a bit more flair or a tighter fit depending on what you need for that day's look. Also, another benefit consumers like is that these shoes is that the shoe will propel you through the gait cycle, rather than holding you back during your walk. You will rock from the heel to your toe with easy in a very natural, comfortable motion. This helps to keep you on your feet longer, because your feet are not tired. It also gives your body the level of support it needs.

Alegria Paloma Shoes Collection

The basic design remains. The Milano collection, however, is a Mary Jane version of the Classic Alegria Shoe. The colors are similar to those found in the Classic design.

There is the Leopard Patent, the Black Rose, the Plum Patent, the Fantasy Tattoo, the Choco Croco and many more. Choose the look that matches your character or buy a few different options for various looks.

There are a few reasons why you will want to focus on the Alegria Paloma shoe as your choice. It is a very cute looking shoe that works well for virtually any type of outfit you are wearing, including a more formal look. The shoes have a stylish buckle on them that helps to make them more of a fashion statement than you might imagine. In addition, the rounded top keeps the youthful look of saddle shoes in the picture. In addition to this, the shoes have a comfortable heel and the fun rocker bottom to them.

Alegria Seville Shoes Collection

Seville is a traditional clog in design. There are 5 colors and patterns available. They include Navy Crinkle, Gardenia, Comic, Black Flowers, Brown Flowers and Black Napa. This stylish pair of shoes works well with any dressy or informal look. The detailing is what helps this shoe stand out from the rest. The comfort level is high, of course. Choose the color you love.

Alegria Barcelona Shoes Collection

The Barcelona combines the traditional rocker outsole with patent leather. This type of Alegria Shoes comes in a multitude of colors and patterns. They include Tangerine Crinkle, Paisley, Black Leather, Chocolate Crinkle, Apple Red Crinkle and Brilliant Black Patent. The strapped look with the vibrant colors helps this shoe be the focal point of your look. Wear them throughout summer and remain in style.

Alegria Bravo Shoes Collection

This is the Alegria Shoes designed for men. It resembles an oxford shoe. The Bravo Collection consists of 3 designs and 2 colors: black and brown. They are lace-ups. Like the traditional Alegria Shoes, Bravos are lightweight, have a rocker bottom and removable footbed. These shoes also are intended to help improve stance, abet foot problems and make walking a pleasure.

Alegria Sierra Shoes Collection

This is the venture by Alegria Shoes into boots. These Sweater Boots feature the same properties of the Classic shoes. They are roomy, comfortable and anatomically healthy. Of course, they look great, too. Wear them out on the town or make them a practical choice for the colder months. You will find that comfort is not sacrificed for looks here.

Alegria Porto Shoes Collection

This is another new entry into the Alegria Footwear line. It is from the Spring 2010 Collection. This type of shoe is a thing sandal. It still features the specialized ergonomic design but comes with stylish buttons. When you step into it, it feels relaxing right from the start. Choose from various colors and looks in this particular shoe collection.

julie ann I love your hub. ive made several hubs and websites on womens shoes but I really like how you put this one together. I didn't know much about alegria footwear before reading this hub. seems like the alegria footwear technology is similar to dansko and earth with both supporting posture, and elevating pain from wearing bad shoes. Good work on the hub I can see why you have so many followers!

I was wearing a pair of your PG Lites at Thanksgiving. During dinner, I felt excess movement in my left foot. After leaving the dining table, I noticed that a section of the upper had separated from the sole about 8 or 9 inches worth. This area is NOT sewn, but had obviously been glued with an inferior product. I have owned these shoes for a while, but I am generally in sandals. I am very unhappy with these shoes.

On the inside they only have the following: 1849BR 10.5, leather upper Made in China, 50126.

Yes, for what they cost, I am NOT happy.
