Ryka Water Resistant Suede Shoes with Front Zip
Preview Your Review
Very cute shoe, but like other reviews - much too tight. I couldn't even wear a thin pair of socks with this shoe. Wish I had read the reviews before ordering.
Keep feet dry
I had the chance to break these shoes in on a rainy day right after I received them. My feet stayed dry! They are true to size and they're comfortable. I feel like I'm wearing sneakers. My only problem is, with plantar fascitis, I need more support than the insole gives; but it is removable and my orthotics slipped right in. Overall, I think they're great!
Sizing Way Off
First and last Ryka purchase. Purchased my usual Clarks size and could not even get my foot into it, yet alone zip it up. And the shoe had all kinds of strings hanging from the seams. Not a good purchase; back it went.
I own several lace up Ryka's. These were very disappointing. The shoe ran short. I usually wear an 8 1/2, but decided to order the wide to be able to wear socks. The fit is tight, and the shoe length is short. "Q" should have warned people. I never had a problem before with Ryka or Clark shoes. The larger sizes are not available. So very disappointing. Will have to rethink ordering shoes from "Q".
Ryka is NOT for me
I have been a member of QVC for over 2 decades, and seen the Ryka brand be a great seller, I tried a pair a year or so ago and sent them back and decided to try again. Sorry, but I don't understand all the hype. These are some of the most uncomfortable shoes I have ever tried. I have narrow AA feet and it is very hard to find shoes that really fit.
I will have to keep with the Clarks brand, and there are not a lot of choices in narrow.
I will not waste my time or yours ordering Ryka again.
PLEASE QVC, offer more narrow shoes. You went up to a XXwide shoe, how about offering those of us at the other end of the spectrum some choices.
Not a Good Fit!
I was sooo disappointed with this shoe. I really wanted them to fit so I could take them to England where I'll be out in the countryside walking. I didn't read the reviews because I wanted them so bad but I should have read them. Absolutely too tight across my foot, couldn't zip either of the shoes and the right shoe heel was sooo tight it was uncomfortable. Back they went! Ryka really does need to rethink these!! I gave 2 stars for effort and for someone who has a really skinny foot! I don't wear a wide shoe but even if I had ordered a wide pair I don't think they would fit me.
Bought 2 pairs..1 for me and 1 for my mom and was 2 different sizes. Both pairs and different sizes had defective zippers. I sent both of them back for a full refund. The shoes would have been comfortable and would have worked for the wet weather, but was poor quality for Ryka and their quality control should have caught the bad and cheap zippers. I couldn't even pull the one zipper down far enough to get my foot into the shoe. I pulled as hard as I could and the zipper wouldn't budge and right out of the box, I saw the zipper was broken in that spot where it stopped and wouldn't open the whole way. On the smaller size for my mom, the one zipper would not go up the whole way and it looked broken too. Ryka needs to improve on the zipper functions and zipper quality. Zipper quality has to be better before I would recommend anyone buying these.

I have sworn off Ryka before as they never fit correctly. But these were just too cute, and exactly what I'm looking for, for autumn. However, like many others have reported, they WILL NOT ZIP UP. Totally too small, and I would not feel comfortable wearing them as slip-ons with the zipper down, defeats the purpose of staying dry. My standard size 6.5 medium works for every other brand QVC sells, but not once has Ryka fit me in my standard size. Big disappointment. I will learn this time, Ryke is not for me.
These are handy shoes to have
These are great shoes for me here in Vermont where we have wet leaves and lots of slushy weather. Often we just don't need boots for deep snow so these are great with the sturdy soles and zip top. I do feel that these run very small. I sized up a half size as directed, but these were still way too tight, even with a sock that was not overly thick. Luckily I hope to be able to exchange for a larger size. SIZE UP,,,at least a full size if you will wear a thick sock. It is frustrating to have to pay for an exchange, especially when the item is not correctly sized.
Way too tight
I always wear a 12 W shoe but these shoes would not zip up because too tight. They also hurt my feet so I sent them back for refund. I was disappointed they did not fit well as the ones I purchased before did fit. I order shoes when they offer a 12 W because not too many manufacturers don't offer this size. Wish Vionic Orthoheel would make more shows in 12 W.
THESE LOOKED GREAT ON THE SHOW. BUT THEY ARE NOT TRUE TO SIZE . THEY ARE WAY TO TIGHT. RYKA REALLY NEEDS TO RE-THINK " MADE FOR A WOMAN'S FOOT". IT IS JUST NOT SO. THEY ARE GOING BACK
Wide With To Narrow
I usually by a 6.5 W in Ryka and they fit great, but the construction of this shoe is off. Way to narrow in the wide with and the heel part turns in on your heel causing pressure. I have a high arch and can not zip it up.
If you like this shoe and have a wide foot, size up.
