Ryka Water Resistant Suede Zip Front Sport Walking Shoes
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.
Very practical Ryka
I can wear them to work and I don't have to take them off right away! Very comfortable and good looking!! Wisconsinite!!!!
When I took them out of the box I thought : "uh oh" then I tried them on and couldn't get my foot in them. I ordered the wide too. Back they go.
What I wanted but not
Exactly what I was looking for in a winter walking shoe but the fit was not right: too wide and cut too high at the ankle. It would have proved to be uncomfortable over the long run. I wish QVC would acknowledge those of us with narrow feet.
love these shoes...
Wore them on a field trip yesterday, and they were so comfortable all day. Yes, it was raining, and they did stay totally dry.
I wear a wide shoe and loved being able to wear a pair of socks in them. Highly recommend you try them out for yourself!
worst ryka's ever
Ordered these shoes in my regular size...a little too tight...toe rubbed. Exchanged for 1/2 size up and they are WAY, WAY, WAY too large. Must wear 3 pairs of socks to be even somewhat able to walk in these shoes. Too late to return. Won't try new style of Ryka ever again.
I usually love my Ryka's, but these shoes are way too tight. I ordered my regular size (7.5 M) and I had trouble zipping them all the way. I do not have a high instep and my feet are slightly narrow. These shoes felt bound around my entire ankles when I tried them without socks. A light weight sock provided little comfort to the shoe rubbing around my ankle and I could not get a thicker sock into the shoe. The toe box is large enough; so I will not be going up a size or width. these are going back tomorrow. So disappointing.
Love these shoes!
After reading some of the reviews, I was a little hesitant to purchase these shoes. But, decided to take a chance and very happy that I did. Great looking all-weather shoes.
I ordered the shoes in blue which was not as bright as the photo, but still OK with it. They were true to size (7.5), but definitely would not have fit if my instep was any higher. I would highly recommend these shoes.
Has the sizing changed?
I loved these shoes so much my husband tried them because he has a very narrow foot - they worked for him! Rather they fit when ordered about a month or so ago. I re-ordered for both of us - the new ones are too small. I ordered the same size and item number as our first pair, but the second order on sizes 10 and 11 were 1/4"- 1/2 " shorter in length than our first pairs - we measured. So disappointed. I will try going to an 11, but no 12 is available for him. If the sizing had not changed I would rate as 5 star.
Please make these in size 12
Just love these. I had 2 pairs size 11 for years...wore them to walk dogs long distances, commute to my office, run errands. They worked in summer on lawns wet with dew, and rainy winters. I always had people stop me and ask where I got them. They finally wore out. I reordered size 11 last year but they were about a half size too small. I ordered several other Ryka styles and they all ran small. Now I'll only get Rykas in size 12. Please Ryka - there are a lot of us big foot girls. I miss these shoes. Would love it if you'd make them in size 12. Gave them 4 stars - if they were water proof instead of resistant I would give them 5 stars.
So practical and easy to wear.
I had purchased a pair of these several years ago, and they arrived 1/2 size too large. SO I wore them anyway because I wear wool socks in the winter, and that worked out fine. This year I thought about buying a pair of boots all winter, but these are so easy to put on, take off and still keep the feet dry, but my feet or socks seem to have shrunk. So I ordered a pair in the correct size, and I love them. They are perfect for the limited amount of time that I am out of doors. They keep my feet dry and warm, and they are more attractive than muddy gym shoes. I wear them everywhere--church, health club, shopping and visiting. They are super easy to slip on and off, and my only complaint is that the color blue is a little too electric. However, the tops of my pants pretty much cover the tops of the shoes so it is not a major problem..
Love these shoes! We have had so much snow and nasty weather in Midwest lately so have worn these often. Great to keep feet dry and comfortable. Happy I bought them!
