Alegria Women’s Paloma Flat Shoes Review

Alegria Women's Paloma Flat Shoes Review

If you are looking for a pair of shoes that are as comfortable as clouds to walk on but also have the class and elegance of a fairytale princess, then there are several options available to the discerning woman. The Paloma Flat by Algeria is one such option that impressed us.

About The Product

Algeria have specifically designed their shoes for maximum comfort, while making sure that they still look fabulous. Here are some of the product's main features:

  • Variety of sizes and uniquely designed leather uppers
  • Leather upper with contrast stitching
  • The shaft measures approximately Low-Top” from arch
  • Heel measure approximately 1.5”
  • Platform measures approximately 1.0”
  • Cushioned platform rubber sole
  • A Mary Jane style with button detailing
  • A removable insole allowing orthotics to be worn

The multiple layers making up the outsole footbed are what give these shoes their comfort, allowing them to fit to the unique shape of each woman’s foot. Just as the glass slipper was made for Cinderella, Algeria have crafted shoes for the modern princess in every woman.

The specifically designed rocker outsole has been crafted to help a woman walk naturally with great posture and a comfortable natural gait. The upper layers of the insole (footbed) create the soft cushioning that helps reduce stress and strain on your legs, joints and back. With less stress and strain on the body, this means less aching pain at the end of a long day.

What We Like

Based on the many positive reviews on Amazon it appears that these shoes are very popular for their level of comfort and great looks. That’s right - comfort and style all in one shoe. This should really be no surprise to anyone given that Algeria’s slogan is very simply - “to create comfortable shoes that invoke happiness”.

The design of these shoes for comfort means that women with bunions, Plantar Fasciitis, hammer toe and other similar foot problems can be found raving about them in reviews on Amazon and who really wants to make an existing foot problem worse if there is a choice.

Best of all if you don’t have a foot problem then these shoes shouldn’t give you one unlike some great shoes that seem to be designed to look great and mangle your feet all at the same time.

The comfortable rocker boat insole allows women that spend many hours on their feet, whether it be due to working or from walking the tourist paths of exotic locations, while at the same time reducing the pain and discomfort that would frequently arise with other types of shoes.

The fact that the Women’s Paloma Flat by Algeria are designed for comfort, has the added bonus that there is little or no breaking-in required for these shoes; usually allowing them to be worn as soon as you have them out of the box.

Now we have all heard of horror stories about plain white, comfortable granny shoes. Just because these shoes are comfortable though doesn’t mean that they are “ugly” and “practical”. The variety of awesome designs available, to you, means that you won’t have to wear the same shoe every day of the week; giving you great choices over which cute designs to choose from.

The secure Velcro strap to close these shoes (rather than a buckle) also makes it easy to get into and out of.

What We Don’t Like

The sizing for the Paloma Women’s Flat by Algeria can be a bit of a challenge however common advice online amongst reviewers has seen some of them recommend simply ordering the next size up from what you might normally choose.

Any good online retailer, such as Amazon, has a free returns policy for clothing (subject to the normal conditions that you would expect). This problem isn’t really a problem specific to the Women’s Paloma Flat shoe but still should be mentioned.

As with almost all shoes and clothing there also tends to be less choices available when buying the larger sizes. While this is understandably frustrating for women wanting larger sized shoes, there are still great choices of styles available for women needing a larger shoe size.

The other problem mentioned in some reviews was a squeaking sound coming from the sole of the shoes when walking in them.

This squeak appears to develop over time. If a little squeaking sound could be a problem for you, then you will be happy to know that there are easy fixes available online in reviews from women who have found this to be a problem and chosen to solve it.

Buying Advice

Now you can see why I am impressed by the Women’s Paloma Flat by Algeria. Comfort and class all in one shoe.

Amazon certainly has them on sale at good prices, in a variety of styles and sizes; although some of the sizes seem to have limited available stock remaining. Like all good online retailers, Amazon has a return and replacement policy (subject to the usual conditions) which will bring peace of mind to those needing it.


Although there may be some minor problems with the sizing of the Algeria Women’s Paloma Flat, this product is rated very highly on Amazon by more than the one thousand people that have reviewed them, and such sizing issues are normal when buying online.

Do you remember when choosing a pair of shoes meant you had to choose between either comfort on the one hand or style on the other but you couldn’t have both. You used to have to remind yourself that if your shoes weren’t killing your feet, they weren’t fabulous enough.

Well, if you are looking for a pair of shoes that will let you spend all hours of the day on your feet and still have the elegance and class of a well-designed pair of shoes, then the Women’s Paloma Flat by Algeria is a great shoe for you. Go on - you know you want to.
