Ryka Water Resistant Suede Shoes with Front Zip
This was the 2nd pair of this exact shoe (different color) I've ordered. I loved everything about it except the zipper broke quite early on! When the 2nd zipper broke, I ordered another pair thinking it was a fluke. Well, in no time at all, one of the zippers has broken on this 2nd pair! As much as I like the construction & comfort, I would not reorder & would not recommend them- there is obviously a flaw in the construction of the zipper :(
Sizes Run Too Small, Heel Too Tight
I purchased this in black for work. I have purchased other Ryka shoes in the past that fit perfect but this shoe didn't zip and way too tight in the heel. I was hoping to exchange it for the next size up but it is sold out. So annoyed it doesn't run true to size. I don't know what to do since I can only wear solid black shoes at work and Ryka doesn't offer alot of solid black shoes. It is a cute shoe but that doesn't do you any good if you have to wear it 10 hours and they hurt. I am leery about purchasing more shoes from QVC since the cost to return is expensive. Ryka, please offer more leather or suede walking shoes, with no mesh, in solid black.
Loved until they leaked
Have had these in black for 2 years. Never have been able to close the zippers but still wore them--very comfortable. Unfortunately, they no longer keep my feet dry -- disappointing to say the least. Would love to order another pair (go up a 1/2 size) but with the leaking issue, don't know if that would be a good investment.
Ryka---please work on the zippers & leakage issues with this shoe!
I can't stop wearing these shoes!
I live in the Midwest, so with the winter we have had it has been nice to have a winter shoe I can slip on to walk my dog, go shopping and even wear to work the whole day. It is a cute shoe. These shoes aren't meant for walking through deep snow but do keep feet dry and have helped me greatly when it has been slippery and icy.
Broken Zipper After Only Three Months
I loved the way these shoes looked and they were really comfortable, but the zipper on the left shoe broke yesterday, and I've only had the shoes since November! These shoes weren't very expensive but that isn't the point. I feel very disappointed, mostly in QVC. I wear several pair of shoes during the week, so it's not as if I even wore these every day.
Best shoes ever!
This is my second pair. I bought a pair thinking only for messy winter days. I loved them. I wear them all the time. They aren't too warm even in summer. Zipper is great - I wish Ryka would make regular walking shoes with a zipper.
Perfect for daily wear in Wisconsin winter!
I have received many compliments on these shoe boots, people want to know where I got them! These are great for doing errands, etc when there is a lot of slush and salt in the parking lots.....I hate getting my good shoes messed up in the winter, and wearing these keeps my Clarks looking great. I had a pair of Rykas similar to these for over 5 years, and finally I had to replace, and this pair is even better. These are perfect for when you really don't need a full snow boot, which is almost every day in the winter!
I wanted to love them but.....
Not sure if its because my arches are so high or what, but I cant get either of the zippers up. I can get them half way up but with in a few steps the zippers are all the way down. They fit too loose to wear open. The concept of the shoes is great. I was really looking forward to wearing them for dog walking. It just isnt a secure enough fit to keep my feet dry wit the zippers down. I waited too long to return them so I use them just to shovel off the back porch. Lessen learned. Don't assume that they will work. Promptly try them and return if need be. Or love them as intended.
Love these shoes
I just received my Ryka's. I live in Buffalo, went out in the snow and slush. My feet were dry and warm and most importantly, I wasn't slipping and sliding. I don't like a big, heavy boots. These shoes are perfect!!
Great shoe but...
I have two pairs, blue and beige. I love the shoe and have had them for awhile however; the right shoe (blue) zipper fell apart today. The shoe is comfortable and fits well and I hope Ryka will do something to make the zippers more secure.
Would be carefull
I have purchased Ryka in the past, these really run very small and I had the same problem as some others the zipper on the left shoe split before I even got the shoe on. I hope Ryka fixes this issue with the zipper, because I would like to give them another try but not until I know the fixed the zipper problem
I bought this shoe about two years ago to wear to dog shows for those early mornings when the grass is wet. For that purpose they have been wonderful and have kept my feet dry. I have high arches and because of that I can not zip the shoe up completely so this shoe has never fit me correctly. Recently I enrolled in a tracking class with my dog and had to wear waterproof shoes. Well these shoes have not held up to the rigors of walking over hill and dale and started to fall apart after two weeks of rough terrain. So all in all these are good city wet weather shoes but not outdoorsy wet weather shoes.
