Love these shoes for my Zumba class. My ankles were killing me so I googled Zumba shoes and these came up. Not the greatest looking shoe but light weight and very comfortable. I usually wear a 8 1/2 but the 9 fit me better.

The shoes did not do it for me, but all was not lost. A friend of mine tried them on and they fit her perfectly. She has problems with her ankle and these shoes were a great resolution for her. Also, you cannot beat Zappos' customer service and return/exchange policy. The shoes run small. Anywhere from half a size to a full size which I am learning is common with dance shoes.

I bought these for Jazzercise and am very pleased. I needed the extra little ankle support. They are as attractive as exercise shoes can be be and still remaining functional.

I bought these for Zumba and they are GREAT!!! In regular sneaks I always felt like I was sticking to the floor. These allow for freedom of movement and the ability to slide a little. I felt they ran a little small. Great service from Zappos!!!!

I wore them for the first time on Wednesday for my Zumba class. What a difference than wearing my running shoes. I was able to do the steps easier and they were not as heavy. I am glad that I purchased them.

Really like the function and comfort of the shoe. It doesn't look so great with shorts or capris, but just fine with pants. Like them!

I have been using Rykas now for jazzercise for about a year. I have a high arch and slightly wide foot. I love the room Ryka provides. These "Mid Studio D's" have proved to be the best shoe for jazzercise. They have a lot of support and I can maneuver great in them. They are more narrow and seem more snug than other Rykas- I do have a slightly wide foot so this is why the narrowness was obvious to me. They do stretch out to accommodate your foot better. One complaint I do have is the inner lining seems to always move when I workout. So I have to stop and remove my shoe and replace it in the right position. I have some weight to lose and sometimes my feet will tingle or burn and I have to take breaks. I haven't noticed that happening as much in these shoes- probably the best support for me. One thing to get used to but it's worth it for the support is they aren't breathable like the other Rykas out there. Just an FYI. I have owned the Ryka Assist (still have a pair for walking) & Studio Flex Low.

Picked these shoes out for teaching Zumba, and I love them! I don't usually wear anything that goes up my ankle, but the support they offer is great. Lots of room for my toes and they look fantastic. Definitely recommend these!

This is the 2nd pair I've bought - so you can tell I like them. Love the ankle support for Jazzercise. I wear a 7.5 or 8 - and have a slightly wide foot - 8 works for this shoe.

I love these shoes. The sizes often vary. I had to try twice. The first pair was a little too small. I normally wear a 9, but I had to go to a 9 1/2 with these.

Although these are sport shoes - I purchased them to ride on the motorcycle. It is difficult to find women's motorcycle boots that are comfortable and can be worn to walk in at your destination. These are not rated for road hazards, so don't crash. I would recommend one size larger if you wear heavy socks.

Love my shoes. I use them to fit in walking during lunchtime at work without looking too obvious in white tennies. Ryka rocks. If you are borderline on size, order up.

These shoes are great for zumba and especially if you have weak ankles. They are so comfortable and it's my second pair of Ryka's for zumba and all I wear for all my fitness needs as they fit so well.

This shoe is the best and it feels like it was made for my foot. I know that they are designed just for women. This is my third pair of Ryka and they are all wonderful. Great product. Only problem is getting them on they are narrow and snug so you have to really loosen the laces and work them on. Small inconvenience.They really hug your feet!

Great shoe, perfect for Zumba! I have a wide foot and it is a little snug but I think that's how it is supposed to fit. Buy one size up; normally I wear 11 Wide but I bought 12 in this shoe.

I have a narrow foot, and expected to need extra insoles, but Ryka fits my foot perfectly! I wanted some ankle support for weight training (I am over 65!), but surprised to find them great for my beginner Zumba class! Kind of funky-looking, but I do stand out! I depend on your reviews from other customers. Thanks, Zappos!

I really like these shoes from the first wearing. I've bought several pairs over the past couple of years. Only complaint: they seem to break down fast, though I teach 1-3 classes a day so I wear them often. I teach a lot of different styles of fitness classes, including Cardio Dance, Hardcore Cardio Kickboxing, Cardio Bosu and more and they are by far the best overall fitness shoes I've had in a very long time (I've been teaching since the '80s). I've turned on many class participants to this shoe and they love the shoe, as well. I am so upset they are no longer making this shoe, I even contacted Ryka to let them know and they didn't seem to care very much. They said there is a replacement and sent me a picture, but it looks different and it's got a bunch of frills on it (I love the solid black look, as well, dislike colored shoes or patterns). I cannot find any more of these shoes in my size (6) online anywhere. Wah!

I was looking for a good Zumba show and I found it. Now I can move faster without fear of a twisted ankle. The fit was perfect for my narrow foot that needs good arch support.

I bought these shoes for Zumba class and they work perfect. A lot of people have the Nike shoe, but the top hit my ankle wrong and I couldn't wear it. This shoe is just right. The higher top give more support, especially for the side to side moves. I love it as much Zumba.

These shoes are very comfortable, they could be a little wider, but I won't complain. I walked in them all day when I first got them and my feet didn't hurt at all. Didn't even have to break them in. I would definitely recommend these shoes.

I'm suffering from plantar fasciitis, tried many a shoe - this one is it! Agree with others, it took a little while to get used to the snug fit - and I do wear lighter weight socks - but I'm back to plyometrics and zumba with no pain! Your foot is truly encapsulated in the shoe, so it definitely takes some getting used to it, but think you'll be glad you did, if you suffer from plantar fasciitis. I'm buying a second pair in the silver - great price and so pleased!

After using four different pairs of shoes for my Zumba class and suffering after each class I decided to buy the Ryka Studio D Mid after reading the reviews on Zappos. Great decision! No more sore feet. The shoe is sturdy with lots of support, and yet is flexible. I have a wider foot size than a B width, but the toe box is wide enough, and because they are sturdy my foot doesn't slide around in the shoe. They are also lightweight and have a pivot point on the bottom. Nice choice and I highly recommend them for dance or Zumba.

Found the shoe to be a little narrower and smaller than a size 8 that I normally wear. Also needed more cushion on the bottom of the shoe for all the movements required as it was stated to be a shoe for zumba dancing.
