Ryka Water Resistant Suede Zip Front Sport Walking Shoes
I was excited to get these then disappointed with fit. They fit but irritated my heels so I knew I would not be able to walk in them which was my intent in spring w wet weather. I wish they had of worked
This is my second pair of these shoes. I loved the first pair, but not this pair although I've chosen to keep them. These shoes are smaller, tighter, and much stiffer. They're not comfortable to wear, but they are useful. However, I would never recommend anyone purchase them, especially since they are expensive. These are a real disappointment.
Not for walking
The footbed of these shoes was so hard and very uncomfortable. The design of the shoe was great but the shoe was so hard all throughout the whole shoe that I (a person that is on there feet and walks a lot) found the shoe just as hard as the concrete that I was walking on. If you change the footbed to a soft or memory foam this might be a suggestion that could help these shoes become better.
I wish I would have read the reviews first...the shoes are tight, they hurt,I will keep wearing them. They look great.
TRUE TO SIZE
I have a high arch and instep, and wide through the toe area. So, shoes don't fit well on me and I have to be careful choosing them. Ryka has been a lifesaver. All of my Rykas fit well. These particular shoes really fit true to size, and they are quite stylist for an all weather type shoe.
I ordered these years ago and fell in love. So convenient and comfy. I wear them almost every day all winter. Bought an extra pair for myself, and another for my sister, my niece and my daughter-in-law to wear on their way to the office because they're so easy on and off. My sister wears hers every day from November through February at least. I kind of agree with other reviewers that they run a tad small because they're snug across the instep; however I can see why they have to be because they're not adjustable, plus I put an orthotic in which makes them snugger still. We have no issues with ankle rubbing or sore little toes.
Back of shoe hurts ankle
Really like the looks of these. Hated to send them back. As much as I tried to wear them they cut into the back of my ankle.
Ryka can you fix the back of the ankle so they are comfortable.
I notice others had this problem too.
Time to buy different shoes
I loved to wear these shoes! They looked nice and were comfortable, but I have only had them for 3 months and on BOTH shoes I have a hole in them from the side next to my pinky toe were my foot bends.
This is not a sturdy shoe, might look nice, but not to have for long at all!!!
Had a pair of these for years and wore them out. Recently ordered this pair and received them a few days ago. Undecided if I will keep them because they do not fit like the last pair. These are cut higher at the ankle and seem to rub otherwise the sizing is fine and more comfortable than another style that I ordered last year.
I Love These Shoes
I live in Wisconsin and these are perfect when a full boot isn't needed. I bought the 7 wide and they fit perfectly. I personally broke them in wearing inside. I wanted to make sure they fit properly and now wear them for hours in complete comfort!
Glad I bought these
These shoe/boots are both stylish and comfortable. They give me confidence that when I go out in wet weather my feet will be warm and dry. Nice tread on the sole, too.
what happened to sizing????
I had a pair of these for years and I loved them. I ordered a 7.5 and they fit great. After 5 years I ordered another pair, same size, and they cut into the back of my ankle. You can actually see that they aren't stitched correctly or the seam is way off. I used a shoe stretcher and they are a wee bit more loose but I'll try wearing them for another week and if they don't work I'll have to return them. I see by the reviews that I'm not the only one who's had this problem lately. HSN, why aren't you looking into this???? Ryka, don't you read these reviews? When many people are stating the same problem you know there's got to be an issue with whoever is manufacturing them....Please fix this problem...I'm very disappointed in Ryka AND HSN for not listening to the complaints and not addressing this.
