Ryka Water Resistant Suede Zip Front Sport Walking Shoes
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!
I ordered this shoe in my regular size of 8.5. They were too tight and I could not zip them up. So I returned them and ordered a size 9. The size 9 worked; and the zipper still would not zip up. I really wanted these shoes to work; I'll be returning them today.
Because I have diabetes, I have to be VERY careful with my footwear. Almost exclusively I wear Ryka and Clarks, and I am usually very happy with them. This time when I put these shoes on, they rubbed painfully on the sides of my feet below the ankle bone. Back they go!
My normal size is 8 but I knew I would be wearing heavy socks inside so I went up to a 8.5. Way to small even without the socks! So I ordered a pair of 9s thinking that should work fine. I'm so disappointed. They cut above my heel, I can't zip them up all the way, and they hurt my toes! I won't be ordering another size, And since this is my first pair of Ryka shoes I won't be buying anymore. I have to spend 14.00 to send these back- such a waste.
Save money, pay later
I was looking for an inexpensive shoe for walking my dogs in the rain. The shoe bed is fine, but this shoe has no lining, so if it's chilly out, you feel it. I was wearing socks, but the socks weren't thick enough to keep my feet comfortable. My feet didn't get wet, which is another reason for my purchase. If I had known that I'd need thicker socks to keep my feet comfortable while walking, I would have ordered a size larger. The heel is very stiff and I quickly developed blisters on both achilles tendons despite wearing socks. I wish I had worn them around the house instead of outdoors, they'd be sent packing back to QVC. My advice, which I may take, is to purchase a rubber moc from LL Bean!
Sole not flexible
I like the look of the shoe, and the water resistance, but the sole is so rigid and inflexible that my feet hurt at the end of the day. I will be returning them. Disappointed.
Feet Stay Dry!
I have had these shoes for 2 years. I wear them in rain, snow, sleet and my tootsies stay dry! I wish they were higher on the ankle, but overall it's a great shoe! I feel very secure walking on ice with them, it's impossible to fall because these shoes don't get slippery when wet! You won't regret this purchase!
Hurt My Toes
I was so excited to get these. Tried them on and back they went the same day. They killed my little toe against the rubber.
Terrible Foot Pain
I purchased these shoes to use to walk my dog. After wearing them for two days I got a terrible pain in my right foot. It felt like I had a broken bone on the top of my foot. I couldn't figure out where this pain was coming from and then I realized that these shoes were the only change I had made. The bottom is so hard that it doesn't bend with the foot. Stopped wearing them and my foot is beginning to feel better.
My First Pair
I purchased these in the tan a couple of years ago and these are the best shoes I have or ever had. They are so comfortable and I wasn't sure how I would like the way they looked, but when I put them on, they are so cute and I get compliments every time I wear them. I want to buy more Ryka shoes, but I have a bad left foot, hurt it over a year ago and I'm still not able to wear shoes. If it gets better, I will be buying many more of your shoes. Thank you for your comfortable, cooling looking shoes.
Not for folks with high arches
I found that these run small and are not for people like myself with high arches. I can not zip completely. I have several Ryka products and they have always been true to size, these ...not so much.
