I am a Zumba instructor and I am on my second pair of Ryka Devotion shoes. I have tried dozens of shoes, and these are by far the best -- enough padding so that your feet and knees don't take a beating, plus they are sturdy without being heavy and I can twist in them without sticking to the floor. I have very high arches, and these provide great support.

Have bought two pr of this shoe. a wonderfully comfortable shoe but, the first pair I bought at the end of Oct. are now pulling apart on the sole, at the instep. Will try to see if Ryka will make good on this shoe falling apart in only two months of wear! Disappointed in Ryka...

What a terrific shoe. Like walking on tempur-pedic foam. Good support since I'm a supinator. I can even run! in these shoes and it doesn't shock my knees! I will order another pair today! Wish there were more color combos to choose from.

Wow! After nine, yes, nine orders over the last year, I finally found an incredibly comfortable pair of shoes! They are awesome. I know they'll be great for step aerobics or just mowing the lawn. Thanks Zappos for your patience.

Generous toe box is one of my favorite things about Ryka, that and the narrower heel to prevent slipping. It has good cushioning in the heel area. It's a pretty good shoe for the price. I enjoy walking in the them.

I work out 5X/week, have bunions, and a Morton's neuroma on the pad of my left foot. I usually buy inserts to protect my feet. So, shoe comfort is extremely important to me! I will never buy another brand of fitness shoes again! This is my first time buying Ryka and I'll buy again and again. Bonus that they are also super cute.

I typically go up a full size in an athletic shoe because I replace the insert with my orthotic. After reading the reviews, I decided to stick with that practice. I am a 9 in regular shoes, so ordered the 10. I tried the 9.5 but didn't have that thumb's width that is recommended for most athletic shoes. The shoe rocks! I felt like I was jumping on clouds. If I wasn't a pronator, and didn't have knee issues I wouldn't insert my orthotic. However, for those who don't need them, this style has great arch support.

I have always enjoyed Ryka sneakers but need to remember that they run about a half size smaller than other brands.

This is my second pair of Ryka cross trainers after years of being an Asics devotee. The cushioning, comfort, support and stability is outstanding. You had actually feel the rebound in the sole. These are great for the treadmill, elliptical and classes.

These shoes are by far the best fitness shoes I have owned. I have worked out my entire life and have worn multiple different types of shoes. I was looking for a fitness shoe, but I feel that cross-trainers are always so bulky. These are supportive, but have more of a running shoe look. The sole is also incredible...so comfortable! I wish I could wear them all the time!

These shoes are so comfortable! I thought that they were those toning sneakers because the cushions on the soles are so bouncy. They are perfect for walking. They are a bit narrow. But I have really wide feet. So quick, lateral movements are not the best for these.

Had to return, way too short and tight in size 9.5. Have another style of Ryka and love them, true fit and great arch support, these just didn't work for me. However, I would highly recommend the brand.

I've had surgery on one foot and it has become increasingly difficult to find a shoe that is soft on my sensitive heel and arch problem. Right out of the box, this shoe walked me through Europe without any complications. Great for people with wide feet and who like a soft ride. Zappos really is so great about their policy for returns, because it took me quite a few tries before trying this Ryka. Thank you Zappos!

I have loved Rykas for years but stopped buying them when I took up tennis 10 years ago. Ryka does not sell a shoes specifically for tennis & I thought I needed a tennis shoe to be safe, comfortable & durable. However, I have a very hard time finding a comfortable tennis shoe lately so gave Ryka a try again. I found this style to be excellent for tennis even in the durability department. We play on hard courts at least 8 hours a week so the soles do start wearing down at 3 months but are still in great shape for shopping, and all other activities. Also, I have a pretty decent sized bunion on my left foot but the mesh seems to work well with that problem so both feet are comfortable. Just love them but had hoped I would be able to get them with less color this time. However, would have gladly bought 2 pair if I could have gotten a pair with blue & a pair with green in my size but both options were out in my size.

The most comfortable shoes ever. I had read an article naming these as very comfortable, so I found them at Zappos and decided to give them a try. So glad I did. For people with a very high arch as myself, you may still need an insert like superfeet if you walk a lot. But they are like walking on a cloud. The fit - I wear a 7 and I bought a 7 and it was right on. There is also plenty of room in the toe area. I have tried so many different shoes to wear while I walk on my treadmill and I finally have a pair I am happy with. I would like to say also, that Zappos is a great company that I just discovered and will continue to shop online with.

I walk 6 days a week and have tried other name brands of sneakers but always return to Ryka and always recommend Ryka. I have been wearing Ryka walking sneakers for a long time and this pair is the best! They fit properly, their light in weight and it's like walking on air.

Brands I'd also recommend: Only one brand - RYKA!

I've worn Rykas one and off for years for Jazzercise, which has a lot of lateral moves, as well as front and back moves, skipping, lunges etc. I often found Rykas to be lightweight but lacking in cushioning. Not so with these. I love them. I wore them to class right out of the box and highly recommend them for any type of aerobic/dance workout. As for size, I wear a 4.5-5 in regular shoes, and a 5.5 in athletics shoes, but with Rykas I always need a 6.

Bought these for my mom. She has bad knees from years of competitive tennis, and arthritis in her feet. She said they are like walking on a cloud. After continued wearing, they haven't broken down like other shoes in the past either. She said they are the best she has ever worn, and she's a tough customer!

These shoes are great! I love them! They are incredibly comfortable, supportive, stable, and breathable. I do not like working out, and these make me want to work out just so I can wear them. I am a true 8, but based on other reviews, I ordered both the 8 and the 8½, and I kept the 8½. I do not regret this purchase for a minute.

These are spectacularly comfortable shoes or are if like me you have wide toes and narrow heels! In which case you don't have to order a size larger than what you usually wear (though I occasionally do take a half size smaller than what I bought these in.) Plus they're good looking. But comfort is the main reason I love them; wearing them is like walking on air!

These shoes are awesome. I bought them just before a vacation that I knew would involve lots of walking, including a couple of days at Disney World. They feel super cushy, never rubbed me the wrong way, and are very flexible. I had read that these ran a bit small, so I ordered an 8 and an 8.5 (I usually wear a 7.5-8). The 8s felt great so I would say they run true to size.

Nice comfortable fit. Over-all nice style, though not my favorite Ryka Style. Excellent comfort and support. Really love the cushioning and the way the bottom of the Devotion is made for traction, buoyancy, and support. Already had this shoe in the orange color and loved it, so got it in pink when I saw it available. However, there is something ever so tiny of a difference in the pink shoe that just isn't as perfectly fitting, or handsome in looks. I know it's the same shoe, but something is just not the same and I still prefer the orange ones more.

I love these shoes. I do a lot of high impact and have little bunions and these feel awesome right out of the box. Sometimes I replace the insole but it doesn't seem necessary with these. I have been a Ryka fan for a long time and these seem to restore my faith in them. I have had a couple that were just "okay." I definitely recommend these if you need extra space in the toe box and a little extra bounce. I always order the same size with Ryka's. Zappos is awesome again!

Pillows for your feet! That is the only way to describe these straight out of the box. Great support, exceptionally comfortable for an active workout, and cute colors. I have tried many other brands but keep coming back to Ryka for athletic footwear.
