Ryka Illusion Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! love them 02-17-13
PERFECT I love this shoe. Fits great and feels great and has good support and comfort. Can't believe how great this shoe fits for me. I am a 7 and this is perfect. I have pink (BEAUTIFUL) and also the blue. LOVE THEM!!!!!!! 02-10-13
Right shoe defective construction Ordered these shoes in pink when they were a TSV. I tried on the shoes to ensure they fit when I received them. The fit was great. Now that the weather is cooler I decided to try our my new tennis shoes. Ouch! The right shoe has a strange defect in the construction. A crease in the fabric, on the side of the shoe, is pinching my foot. I thought the crease would stretch with wearing. Upon closer examination, the silver design is placed higher on the right shoe than the left shoe. It has been several months since I purchased the shoes. I'll contact customer support to find out if I have an option to return these shoes. 10-07-12
not so good i feel like i am walking on rocks and the arch is not where my arch is. not sure how that is possible as the shoe size is the correct size for my foot 09-23-12
So Cute and Girlie- Girlie! I ordered these shoes in the pink and they are soooo cute and girlie looking. I love them. The fit is perfect. I am not a runner but I do use them for walking and exercising in the gym on a regular basis. I could not be more pleased. I have not had a problem with arch support at all, but it could have to do with the fact that I have a very high arch. 09-03-12
Wonky Arch I have read several reviews regarding this shoe and I agree with all of them related to the arch. While the 4 stars are given for the color (gray/green), a great toe box and how light they are the arch does not "fit" my foot either. I've never had this problem in any other Ryka and I own probably 8 pair. The arch is too far back for my foot and seems to hit more on my heel end instead of under the actual arch. I'm keeping them & wearing them but find myself constantly adjusting my feet to meet the arch. I ordered A219803 at the same time and I like it. I do always size up (to an 11) in Rykas because they do run a tad short (for me). If not for the arch problem in this one I'd order the pink, too, for fall. 08-20-12
Cute, but not durable The shoes are really stylish and fun. However after a couple of walks in the shoes, I noticed the heal was wearing and some material was flaking off the bottom. I am not at all hard on my shoes, so this surprised me a lot. I have had many pairs of Rykas over the years, and I don't think this is the best quality shoe. Unfortunately had to return. 08-20-12
Nice shoe, but not for long walks I like this shoe. Even though it's a medium width there is LOTS of room for my wide foot. However, there isn't enough cushion for the ball of my foot. By the end of a five mile walk my feet were screaming. I don't think they'd work for me for running (which is what they were designed for). It's almost like they forgot to put the cushioning in. That said, for some reason they have been perfect for Jazzercise. Strange, since you spend a good deal of time on the balls for your feet. Go figure. I'd recommend them, just not for running or walking long distances. 08-15-12
What is wrong with this arch??? Really wanted to like these shoes. They are so cute. Cute doesn't make up for the fact that they just don't fit right. Something is very wrong with the arch. The edge of the sole seemed to cut into the bottom of my foot. Too narrow?? I tried another insole with no luck. Thought maybe they just didn't work for my feet, but I see others had the same problem. I was excited to try my first pair of Rykas, but sorry, these are going back! 08-15-12
What is wrong with this shoe? I LOVE Ryka - I have 3 pairs and was looking for a fourth simply because I needed a newer pair for a step class that I just started. These shoes were SO cute - I was really excited to get them. The one star that I did give this shoe was because I like the look of it - but that's the only reason. Something is really wrong with the structure of the shoe. Maybe I had a defective one? The arch was UNDER the sole of my foot. My foot was literally hanging over the inside of the shoe. The toe box felt funny and had already started to bend in a weird place just from walking around my house. I think the seaming would have come loose on the top of the toe if I had used it for a short length of time. I'm SO sad it didn't work out! It is a really cute shoe.....=( 08-13-12
Nice Running Shoe (but not wide enough) This is a very comfortable running shoe and I love the color. It's really cute. But I must be the only one with really wide feet because these shoes are not wide or long enough in my size. I normally take a 9 or 9 1/2 but I had to send it back for a size 10. These shoes are structured differently than the others I've worn in the past. They are very comfortable though and have a good, sturdy arch support. I normally don't buy shoes online and this purchase has confirmed why I shouldn't have done it in the first place. Overall, I'm very pleased with my purchase. I would only recommend this if you went to an actual shoe store to try it on even though you may not get the price you want. 08-10-12
Love This Shoe! Great shoe! Great fit! I was actually excited about an evening walk last night! 08-08-12
