The Ryka optimum mary jane 2 sneaker is great! It is so lightweight, and so very comfy (like an old pair of worn in shoes) from the second I put them on. So very glad to have found them and would highly recommend these to others.

I purchased these shoes on April 14th and have worn them on average twice a week since then. Yesterday, while at work, the strap broke. I had to hold my shoe together with a safety pin for 8 hours. I have not put undue wear on the shoes or the straps, haven\'t even had them for two months yet! I do not recommend these shoes at all.

These are incredibly comfortable. They are very cushy. Great looking, too. I do, however, think they run a little short. I am always an 11M and I could use a tad more length.

The customer service and shipping is awesome. This is my third pair and I just ordered another pair in black. There is good arch support and plenty of room. I did, however, have to stretch the band at the top of my foot on the left shoe as it pinched my big toe; it is just fine now and feels like you are walking on a feather. They are wonderful exercise shoes, but probably not enough support for running.

These are the most comfortable shoes. I am on my 4th pair in 5 years and they are wonderful, especially if you have pain in the knees joints. They could use a longer lasting close, but I 5 star them.

I purchased this same shoe 2 years ago and loved it. I wanted another pair and found these on Zappos.com. The style changed slightly but still found them to be so comfortable from the start. I love them as they are stylish, yet sturdy enough to stand the Vermont woods.

These shoes are the best shoes to wear for my jazzercize classes. They are not for people who have narrow feet. The toe box area is a little roomy. I do like the fact the strap can expand which allows for a tighter fit. I have thrown them in the washer and dryer so cleaning them is a breeze. I would buy them again.

I was searching for a non leather shoe that I could wear all day with lots of support. The Mary Jane style is a lot more fashionable than a regular sneaker. This combo was hard to find; I purchased 2 more pairs and stashed them in my closet!

Super comfortable and light weight. With these, I can stand for 10-11 hours no problem. I also use arch supports and have plenty of room for my foot.

Everyone, important! This model runs very short. I had to get a full size larger. I owned about 8 pairs of Ryka shoes before, always wore size 7, but had to get size 8 for these shoes. Other than that - perfect, just like all Ryka shoes. I am giving 4 stars for the difference in sizing.

These shoes don't seem to have as much cushioning as the former "Versa" style of this shoe. Also, runs a half size small.

This shoe looks bulky, but it’s a very reliable shoe in terms of comfort, especially if you’re going on a trip. I ordered size 8 1/2 and the fit was perfect.

These were comfortable right out of the box. I did order a half size larger but still feel a little rub on my large toe. I have Morton's neuroma and heel spurs so these shoes are a great find for me.

Inside of shoe very comfortable and soft. Toe area runs short, I normally wear a size 7, had to get a size 8. The area under the straps that go over the arch rubs the skin, after awhile it can be hurtful.

This is my 3rd pair of Ryka Mary Janes. Comparing these to my older pair, there is a big difference. The quality of this product has gone way down. The strap is thinner and just just one strap across the top. Older version had a wider strap that looped through on one side, & then over the foot. So this strap is much less supportive...just cheaper. The fabric is not as nice. The amount of leather is less. My foot slides around and isn't "hugged" like the older version (probably due to the thin strap). I am disappointed. Will probably look for a similar shoe in another brand next time. Ryka really blew it on this one. On a positive note, the shoe seems to be cushioned fairly well. I would give the older version all 5s.

This is a darling shoe but ran extremely small, at least for me. I usually wear an 11.5 which is exceptionally hard to find, so frequently I order a size 12. This 12 felt like an 11, so much so that I actually looked inside each shoe to check the size.

Was disappointed. I had a pair of Ryka shoes years ago, and they were wonderful. One of these shoes hurt my foot. The back top of the shoe was too wide. I need the narrow fitting.

I wear a 7.5 in a dress shoe and 8.5 in running shoes. I split the difference and purchased an 8 for this around town shoe. My toes were squashed against the end, so I ordered a 9, which fit. However, the shoe has too much volume (my foot is on the narrow side of "regular") and the band squeaks when I walk...so both pairs got sent back.

Due to foot issues, I wanted a shoe that would be as comfortable as a sneaker but which I could wear at work every day. Although not the most stylish shoe, I can wear it with casual pants. There was very little arch support, so I used orthotics which fit perfectly and made them extremely comfortable to wear. My only complaint about the shoe is that the velcro tab does not stay together and I've walked out of the shoe a couple of times. I am ready to take them to the local cobbler to see if he can put a buckle or snap on them so that I can continue to wear them. They hold up well and show no signs of wear. And it goes without saying, that the service I received from Zappos was outstanding. I ordered the shoes at 2 pm on a Thursday and had them by 9 am on Friday! Thank you, Zappos! I will be ordering from you again.

It was great working wtih Zappos on this purchase. Unfortunately, the shoe style was not similar to another Ryka I have purchased previously. Therefore, I can\'t really recommend this particular shoe. The way the velcro attaches is rather uncomfortable for me, but hey, everybody is different.

The Versa style was so superior to this style. Runs short but the correct length leaves huge gap at heel that cannot be corrected with the velcro strap, which is also inferior to the Versa style. The cushioning in the sole is not as good as the prior style. Bring back the Versa and ditch the optimum.

Very uncomfortable. I love my Ryka running shoes. But even though these are the same size, this model doesn't fit my foot correctly. No matter how I adjusted the velcro closure there was pressure on the inside of the ball of my foot & it rubbed with every step. I had to return them.
