Ryka Arbour Leather & Mesh Slip-on Shoes with Goring
Great Shoe For Everyday
I have worn these shoes all summer. The black looks like like a shoe more than a sneaker. I wish Ryka would make the same shoe in something other than a mesh so I could wear them in the winter.
Not what I expected
They look great but the fit is terrible. I was surprised as Rykas are usually dead on. I tried to wear them but they rubbed on my large toe when walking and did not have enough support so my feet rocked sideways. My feet hurt all night long after wearing them. I don't return many things but had to this time.
I am ordering these in every color that I can. They are the best thing since sliced bread. Easy on easy off comfortable it's a no-brainer. Go Ryka
Sending Them Back
It said to order 1/2 size down so I did and my toes were squished! So bummed. I liked them. My size is sold out.
Sized Way to large
Love this shoe!! It is super cute and super comfy BUT this shoe is huge so it gets 3 stars for that BUT Ryka really needs to have their sizing more consistent. I ordered two Ryka brand shoes at the same time - both the exact same size. One was WAY to large and the other was WAY to small. Sorry but this brand of shoe needs to be bought in a store where you are able to try them on before buying. !!!
Most uncomfortable shoes I have had.
I have tried wearing these shoes with/without socks to see if I could
wear them. In spite of knowing how uncomfortable they were, I even
tried wearing them all day couple of times. they hurt my feet terribly.
I didn't return them becuase I lost my receipt and had thrown out the
box, thinking they would be nice to wear. They are in my closet.
they do run big, I had to return my first purchase for a smaller size.
From a size 7 to a 6 1/2.
I agree with so many of these reviews! The sizing is just "off". They feel GREAT on but when I walk my toe hits the tip of the shoe like it's cut too short. I kept them because of the comfort and I "deal" with the toe issue like I deal with wearing high heels!!!! lol
Very strange sizing with these sneakers. I ordered my normal 8.5m and they were huge. I returned them for an 8m. They came and the width was still to roomy but my toes hit the front. Really cute shoe, just not right for me.
I have never tried Ryka shoes before. I ordered these in my normal size, but on receiving them, found them uncomfortably tight at the toes, so I returned them and exchanged for another half size larger, they also were too tight and returned them too. Also the elastic insert over the top of the foot felt much too tight. If I were to get another pair, I would want laces, at least you can adjust the tightness over the top of the foot.
Unfortunately, my high instep prevented me from being able to wear them and I hated to have to send them back. They cut across the top of my foot. However, there was plenty of toe room and they are really cute shoes. I wear a wide width and the width was fine.
Very comfortable and light but soles collect rocks
These shoes are very light, airy and comfortable. They are also very cute and are flattering to the foot. My only issue is that the bottom of the shoes collect small rocks and pebbles so don't buy these if you will be walking on gravel or dirt. The space between the sole grooves is so wide that all kinds of things get trapped in there. Other than that the shoes are wonderful and would be ideal for walking on cement, a cruise ship deck or anywhere else that is smooth and a clean surface.
I have ordered other Ryka shoes and have been happy but I have always worn socks. I wore these without socks to walk my dog and within 10 minutes I had developed a blister on my lower right heel. Sadly I'm returning them. I will probably not order any more Ryka that I can wear barefoot with a high back.
