Go All-In with Alegria

It’s not often you hear the terms “substance” and “style” uttered in the same breath, let alone written in the same sentence when describing a shoe brand. The same could be said about a telephone that would one day connect to the Internet, yet here we are. Today, we can safely throw all of those preconceived notions a mile out of the window, whether it relates to comfort footwear or handheld technology, as a new wave of innovation continuously washes ashore.

Seven years ago, Alegria bursted onto the scene and became a leader in therapeutic footwear for women and men. Each pair of Alegria shoes are hand stitched and made from genuine leather and suede with their signature rocker bottom outsole.

Alegria shoes not only look good on the outside, but also make you feel good thanks to the Perfect Fit Footbed System and rocker outsoles. Engineered with an integrated polyurethane outsole, you’ll not only combat heel and central foot pressure, but also notice an increase in walking stability and posture. 

Additionally, the brand’s patented, interlocking footbed system features arch support and is loaded with latex, memory foam and cork to create a uniquely perfect fit every time by forming to the natural contours of your foot.

Now that we’ve focused on the substance behind Alegria footwear, let’s shift gears and talk a bit about the sashay-worthy styles below!

Although given similar names, the Ever, Eva and Eliza could very well be considered the Big 3 of ankle booties. Each style brings a unique characteristic to the table, from breathable side goring to buckled strap accents and shiny copper foil details. Dress up or dress down your look with a slimming dress, dark colored denim or leggings for a chic and ultra fabulous display.

Commute in Functional Style with Chrome

If you’ve ever lived in a bustling metropolitan area like Los Angeles or New York, you know that long commutes are the norm and public transportation is gold. It’s much easier to take a bus or train downtown and walk a few extra blocks to the office than it is to fight highway traffic and waste gas. But power heels, business footwear and briefcases aren’t ideal for this sort of weekly travel. You need a sturdy bag to carry your necessities (like those stylish office shoes) and durable yet comfortable footwear to get you there. Chrome products have you covered for both.

Chrome messenger bags are made for your commute. Originally big on the urban cycling scene, these travel bags gained huge popularity for their well-sewn, well-made designs. Whether you’re into a minimalistic pack or a larger, high-functioning bag, Chrome ensures all styles have the same features. Waterproof fabrics, quick-release shoulder straps and functional pockets are in every bag, with some having built-in bottle openers and military grade liners added on.

A highly functional, ultra-durable design is put into Chrome’s footwear too. Antimicrobial insoles and skid resistant rubber bottoms are standard, making each shoe tough enough for all sorts of weather. Cool materials like fire hose canvas, fiberglass and reflective coating are used in their shoe construction, and some footwear is even made completely by hand. This attention to detail proves Chrome is dedicated to creating top-quality goods for city commutes, travel-heavy weekends and any unexpected event in between. Check out some of their unique craftsmanship and urban styles below.
