Ryka Elate Leather & Mesh Lightweight Fitness Shoes
Ruined my trip to Disney
Because these were advertised as being a comfortable walking shoe designed by women for women, I purchased them and packed them for my trip to Disney along with flip-flops and a pair of sandals. Needless to say, a trip to Disney World with kids requires a lot, and I mean a lot of walking. After the first half hour of wearing these sneakers my heals were killing me. I have never had this kind of pain with any other brand of sneaker I have purchased in the past (Nike, New Balance, Sketchers, to name a few). When we returned to our hotel I took off the sneakers and took out the insert out to see how much padding was in the heel area and there was none! It was paper thin! How foolish of me not to check this out sooner! What a disappointment!!! I tried wearing them again when I returned home thinking ok, they were now "broken in", and a simple walk around the block with the dog in these sneakers created the same horrible pain in my heel. There is absolutely zero cushion in these sneakers....
When you buy cheap shoes, that's EXACTLY what you get...
Sizing is off
I too agree that the sizing runs small. I got the 10W and they just fit. There is no wiggle room. I should of returned them, but I liked them and can only wear them when it's not a foot swelling day. Now that it's getting really hot outside in New England I won't be able to wear them.
Ryka got the fit right!. Wear them almost every day without any problems. Went back to buy one or two other pairs, but my size was sold out. RYKA PLEASE MAKE MORE OF THESE SHOES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Other styles are not up to par and don't fit right.
cute walking shoe
I bought these shoes in silver I love them I like ryka I have
some that I have had for several years. they are still good
Best Fitness Shoe Purchase Ever
I love the shoe!!!!!!! The look good on and they are so comfortable. Like walking on air. Great support. The price is execellent. I've paid $60 for a fitness shoe and I had to break them in but not Ryka.
I have only had a week but seem comfy. I am a 5, and I am thankful you carry my size. however, b/c I wear socks w/ sneakers, I got a 51/2. I am glad I did, I am happy with this purchase, thank you , Ryka and QVC for remembering women w/ small feet.
Not Up to Ryka Standards
Love, love Ryka shoes and always have. They are the most comfortable, right out of the box, no breaking in time shoes on the planet. So lightweight and good looking. However, although I have bought Ryka's for years the last 2 pairs seem different. The soles are too thin and they don't have the cushion that I have become accustomed to. Ryka should review this feature because it is very important and sets them off from all other competitors. Please return to the cushion that we have grown to expect from such a great company.
I have been a runner since 2002 and this was my 1st pair of Ryka's....and will be my last pair. I have never had a problem with stones, gravel, etc. collecting in the soles of the shoes that I have to constantly take a knife and wedge out of the cracks in the rubber soles. Well that was until I received this pair. They also are very snug and I took the same size that I wear in my running shoes like Brook, Asics, etc. I called c/s when I first got them but the gentleman was of no assistance stating he always has to dig gravel and stones out of his soles. Not so with the other name brand running shoes.
I loved the price and I love Ryka shoes, always have. This pair is different. Very thin bottom sole, not much cushion. My feet hurt after wearing them for awhile. Im so disapointed in this particular shoe.
PLEASE Bring Them Back!!
These are my favorite shoes! I got second pair before my size (9W) sold out, but REALLY wanted a couple pairs in other colors. I have tried other Rykas but none fit and feel like these. These are so lightweight, the fit is perfect and they wear well. PLEASE bring them back!!
These were the smallest 10W shoes I've ever tried. The ends of my toes were scrunched against the inside, and the shoes were snug all around. I set them on the floor next to my 10W Nike sneakers and they were about an inch shorter! I won't buy Ryka again.
