    I have just ordered some Alegrias. I am overweight with back and ankle issues. I had Danskos when I taught school, but I have high arches and they were 6 hour shoes at best. I have heard great things about New balance, but I don't think I have the right ones. Finally went to a shoe store that is like the old timey ones: they look at your feel and fit you, not just bring the shoes and ask if they fit.
