Experience a new kind of fitness footwear with Ryka! The Ryka shoe company was founded in 1987 by a woman who felt it was time for the shoe industry to take a new angle on women's athletic shoes: she wanted to make women athletes a shoe that actually fit. Since then, Ryka has continued to focus exclusively on sport footwear for women, including running shoes, walking shoes, toning shoes, and even aqua training shoes.
Back when Ryka was getting started, most running or cross training shoes were designed and constructed on the same form whether they were for men or women. Ryka's revolutionary approach uses a women's-specific form instead, providing their shoes with a shape that fits better from the start. One of the key differences between the women's form and the normal form was the women's version had a narrower heel and wider forefoot, making an immediate difference in the overall fit and comfort of Ryka shoes.
This unique approach to design and construction has helped make Ryka shoes some of the highest-rated in the industry. It's time to put the "fit" back into your fitness routine. Discover what your feet have been missing with our selection of Ryka athletic shoes!
I think it's a slight gamble to buy gym shoes online without trying them on, but I'm really happy with these shoes. They feel lightweight but have plenty of cushion on the bottom. I like the color and design.
I think if anything they are not as stable as the heavier shoes - I wobbled a tiny bit with a few strength training exercises that required balance and while balancing weights. But I don't regret my purchase at all, especially for the price. Really comfortable, solid shoes. I could imagine retiring these to some great walking shoes after the gym.
OMG!!! These are GREAT!!! So comfortable! Love the design. Because I have heart issues sometimes walking, especially up hill can be a bit of a challenge! I put these on, and I was able to walk up hill without stopping to catch my breath which let ME know that I have been wearing the wrong type of shoe/sneaker!!THESE ARE GREAT!!!! LOVE THEM!!!
