In the late 80's women's athletic shoes were mostly scaled down versions of men's styles. Ryka founder Sheri Poe was frustrated by the lack of athletic footwear designed to meet the needs of women. So she did what any frustrated woman with an entrepreneurial spirit would do – she started her own company to meet the need. All Ryka shoes are molded to the shape of woman's foot. Narrow heels prevent foot slippage and blisters, while the wider forefoot gives toes room to move and flex. Ryka supports women's fitness with more than just comfortable, ...

These shoes feel great after a full day which is great! I have flat feet and my legs usually ache when I get home. I read the
reviews saying they ran small, so ordered a size up. Glad I did! Black is very attractive with just enough purple!!

Did not like these at all. They have a big bumpy padded insert inside them that just feels weird. Would perhaps be ok with the insert removed but I just didn't like the way they felt - I prefer a more minimal shoe.

These mary janes are comfortable and are a perfect fit. Looks good with jeans and I wear them for casual dress. I moved down to a sz 71/2 from a sz 8 as my heel was always slipping. This move seems to be the answer on all my shoes. For the price you can't go wrong if you get a good fit. I have also had a few compliments on the cute shoes.

Very nice looking shoe. The inner cushion is nice, but makes the shoe a bit too tight. If I remove the cushione, there is no arch support.
I'll try wearing tor shorter occasions to see if any "stretch" that would help with the situation

I thought these were super sporty, yet cute. the construction seems of quality. I'm usually a 7.5 to an 8. I ordered the 7.5 and really needed the 8. they seemed comfortable, but no extra room....so sad to say, they have to go back. Waiting for an 8 to be available.

I have always worn Ryka tennis shoes and have been very happy with the fit and wear. So, I decided to try these mules for casual wear and I must say they are very comfortable. I normally wear a 7 1/2 but I ordered an 8 as I usually do with slip-ons and I glad I did as a 7 1/2 would have been too small. The top of the shoe over the bridge of my foot was a little tight at first, but after wearing a few times, they are stretching. I wear them all day and have no complaints. Great buy - thanks STP for offering great products at a great price!
