Ryka Water Resistant Suede Shoes with Front Zip
Great Dog Walking Shoes
In the rainy Northwest you have to be prepared to trek through the rain and mud when walking the dog. I love these shoes! They sit next to my front door and ready to go. I slip out of my dress shoes and into these when Crackers needs a walk. They are easy to clean, comfortable and warm. I even wear them on those rainy and/or cold days when I want to go for a long walk without the dog. Fits true to size. Because I have a wide foot, I am usually hesitant to buy shoes without trying them on first. These gave me plenty of room in the shoe box plus support.
Good but zipper issues
These are nice shoes, kept feet dry. I usually do not wear a wide but decided to try it since it was a winter shoe and I might wear a thicker sock. Fits like a regular width shoe without thicker socks. So if you are looking for a true wide shoe, this is not the one for you. Good traction, fits nicely, but I did have issues with the zipper constantly opening up on the right shoe.
Worst Ever Purchase
I'd rate them with one star because I like the way they look on my feet. I've purchased these on 2 occasions, same style, same color, and before the wet/winter season was over they leaked from cracks in the black rubber/neoprene area. I did not set them anywhere near heat to dry out and even put a little vegetable oil on the black portion during the winter and before storing them over the summer. They are NOT in the least water resistant, even right out of the box as described by QVC and the Ryka representatives. They leak through the seam between the sole and the top. Not worth the money.
I work outside in the brutal Michigan weather and these shoes were amazing! My feet stayed warm and most importantly dry all day! Thanks Ryka and QVC!
great slip protection
if you wish to garner a safe landing, buy these ... keep your feet dry and get there safely
I got these shoes because I hate having to put on the long rain boots. I wore them the second day I got them because it was raining. They were great! My feet were dry and I walked thru some puddles. I would definitely recommend them. They are also very comfortable, I got the black pair.
These are very comfortable and keep feet dry. The plastic zipper is not self-healing and one failed the fifth time I wore these and now it's difficult to slip on and off.
Usually Ryka is way better than this. It's the first zipper shoes I have purchased made by Ryka.
It took a while for the shoes to arrive, but it was worth the wait. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable with plenty of toe room. I'm even more pleased with the fact they're water resistant; no more wet socks.
I like these!
After reading reviews, I went a half size up. Good decision, the zipper just barely zips all the way, and I don't have high arches or wide feet. They do the job. I wore them the first time on a wet, 35 degree day and my feet remained dry and warm. The outsole provided great traction indoors and out, on wet and dry surfaces, didn't squeak. And after 4-5 hours of constant wear on day-one, I expected my feet to be sore, but they weren't. My only complaint would be that the left shoe slips on my heel and will definitely cause a blister if I don't put in a heel grip. Hope that does the trick. Not sure how warm they would be in severely cold temps and they're obviously not for deep snow. But they're great for rainy or slushy midwest days, and probably even in a few inches of snow. An extra pair to leave in the car might be smart.
Love the fit and feel, great to walk when sidewalks are wet and slippery, just a great shoe
I bought the blue in 12 wide. the shoe itself fit just fine. However, the zipper did not zip up. I will admit that these are comfortable, and super cute. So sorry these didn't work for me. I'm glad that these shoes work for others, but I had to return.
More than I expected
I have been looking for a shoe like this. It's great when it's raining or just not enough snow to wear boots. And they are very warm. I was putting up Christmas decorations outside yesterday and my feet were so cold. I remember I had these shoes and ran in and put them on. My feet stayed nice and warm. I am very happy with this purchase.
