I got up at midnight to be sure I was able to order my size, 9 or 40, in the Tartan pattern. I watched multiple presentations over the day and was really hyped up to get them home. I was pleased with their appearance out of the box, although the fur lining was pretty scanty inside the boots. My real issue arose when I tried them on. These boots are absolutely enormous, not just in length, but in every other dimension there is! They are sloppy through the instep so the shoe literally hangs suspended from the top of your foot and out of contact with the footbed anytime your foot isn't flat on the ground. The opening at the top is similarly huge and further contributes to the sloppy fit. And to just add insult to injury, they are very, very, very wide. I felt like a kid tromping around in my father's work boots! I cold see that the footbed had the potential to be outstanding in its support during the intermittent moments my feet had contact, so I am up for trying the brand again. The only real plus was I ended up looking like a generous hero to my 6 foot tall sister-in-law in Florida who wears a size 10 Wide. They fit her perfectly, and she'll never miss the boots' lack of a true winter lining the way I certainly would here in Ohio. Take this one back to the drawing board, Alegria. You had a great concept and the exterior materials were outstanding, but you need to start over with the design. And put a winter caliber lining in if you plan on marketing them as a fall/winter season shoe. Nobody wants to have to put on three pairs of thick socks to keep their feet warm OR to try to keep their boots on their feet in the first place. I'll be in the front of the line when you debut your improved version.

These are adorable! Unfortunately the front of the boot is hitting my ankle and doesn't feel too good. I ordered my regular size, but think I will try going up one size to see if this solves the problem. I so want these to work because they are just too cute!The support inside the boot is amazing though and very comfortable.

ALEGRIA WATER RESISTANT LEATHER ANKLE BOOTS W/FAUX FUR-MERI (order Black Florette) are very well made, beautiful boots and the inner sole with cork is very comfortable. Unfortunately, I will be returning these boots because, even though I ordered wide, I have on/off swelling in my left ankle and cannot comfortably get the zipper up--this is my problem and NOT a problem with these boots. If Alegria should redesign these boots with elastic at ankle for extra expansion, I would definitely consider reordering in the future. Thank you QVC and ALEGRIA!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dock Diving Annelei Mom Best Shoe Ever!
I LOVE this shoe! This ankle boot was by far the most comfortable shoe I ever had on my foot! I have lymphedema in my left leg, ankle and foot and it is extremely difficult to find a shoe wide enough to fit my always-swollen foot, but this shoe was PERFECT BEYOND WORDS! My left foot is about two times the size of my normal right foot. I bought the 38 and it was out of the box PERFECT for both feet! The toe box of the shoe has a lot of room. If my lymphedema foot can wear it and be comfortable for in excess of 8 hours, that's the mark of a great shoe! I went back and purchased two more pair - the Tartan Plaid and the Brown Tool. All three pair are equally comfortable. I wish Alegria made more styles and I wish QVC carried more of this line. These are truly water resistant. I have a canine athlete that is titled in dock diving and I wore the Tartan Plaid ones to a diving event and my feet stayed toasty warm and dry ALL DAY, and we were on the dock a lot! Wonderful, wonderful shoe. Well worth the money.

Oh, I love these pretty plaid beauties. Now I don't have to wear crocks and socks all winter with snow in my toes. First winter boots in a long long time. Hope I love them furever.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Comfort and warmth!
Just started wearing these because it was hot outdoors so waited until weather turned cold. These boots are warm and comfy. The footbeds are so sturdy and well formed to my foot. I find them to be comfortable all day long because of the heels hollowed and the arch support. I have trouble with my feet and appreciate these boots because they hold your feet in such a sturdy way.

These boots felt heavy and were not bendable and were too long and wide . . . Overall very unattractive on my foot and a poor fit. I felt like I was in a construction boot. There was absolutely, positively nothing I liked about them. Give me Clarks or Skechers for comfort and fit. Needless to say, they are on their way back.

Alegria was recommended after a bout with foot problems: I am happy that I listened to the advise of my podiatrist nurses'. This shoe is very comfortable and perfect for my work as an elementary educator.
