These shoes are great! They fit so well and are light weight and look very slenderizing. I can also put my orthotics in them. I really bought them for Zumba classes. I might even buy another pair.

I've been doing Jazzercise for almost 3 years and I really needed new sneakers. I love these! They are so light and supportive. I love these sneakers. I feel I'm getting a better workout because I can move so much easier.

Truth be told, I was sold on the hot pink/neon yellow combination of these shoes. But I did try three pairs of Rykas and these were the best! They are super comfortable and fit in all the right places. I have wide feet but narrow heels and these shoes accommodated both. I normally wear an 8½ but I got a 9 in these which was perfect. The 8½ was too tight in other Ryka styles that I tried and would have been too tight in these. And always you have to love Zappos with their quick shipping!

I love these shoes. A trainer introduced me to them. They are light and very comfortable and come in fun colors. I have a narrow foot and they fit me great. Good arch support and light enough to pack easily.

Excellent sneaker. Wore it around the house a few times to get used to them. Love the look, love the feel, love the sneaker. I wear a size 5, which makes it very difficult to find sneakers. These were true to size and fit perfectly!

Very nice shoes in several ways. fits my size 6 perfectly; very light weight; colorful. I can only say it is a perfect fit for me and, I would imagine, others. I have received many compliments on their appearance.

I love these shoes. I wear them with custom orthotics for Zumba. One review said that they ran smaller than other Ryka shoes, but I didn't find that to be the case. Great fit, great color, very comfortable.

I always get compliments on these shoes. That's just a bonus to how comfortable they are. I use them for walking, running and cross-fit classes. This is my third pair of Ryka shoes and I will buy more when this pair wears out.

This shoe is very popular with Jazzercise instructors and students. It has a wide foot base for stability and mesh across the top for breathability. It is also very light weight and has a good arch. Love!

It has been along time since I have found a shoe such as the "Ryka Dynamic". It has proven to me that it gives very good arch support, comfort and lateral movement in one! I ended up ordering two more pairs in other colors after a week work out in the first pair. This is the shoe you can depend on to give you a satisfying work out when it comes to Jazzercise or any studio work out. I hope Ryka will keep the "Dynamic"shoe around, and... how about designing some more fun, bright colors with summer being right around the corner!

These shoes are a comfortable shoe, but I wouldn't recommend them for Jazzercise. The Influence by Ryka is a sturdier shoe for the rigors of Jazzercise. These would be better for regular gym use.

After reading the reviews, I purchased these shoes. I also really love these shoes. I will say though that I have used them for Zumba and other regular workout and the mesh sides are starting to fall apart. I have had them for about a month when I noticed this. But I guess that's just your average wear and tear...

I liked these a lot but my big toe was hitting the end of them and I could tell it would be a problem so these have to go back. I bought 3 pair of Rykas in different styles, all size 9, and the other 2 fit just fine. For some reason this style is just a bit too short on my foot. The Ryka Encore style is perfect for my feet and I'm absolutely thrilled with them. Had never heard of this brand before but I like the light weight and overall feel of them. I would recommend trying at least a couple of different styles to find the one that suits you.

I ordered 3 different brands of tennis shoes, and these were the keepers. This shoe has a comfortable footbed with good arch support. It has support through the upper toe box for my gym workouts.

I have always worn Nike Air, but decided to try these for Zumba. I do like the style & comfort, but after about 3 months I noticed holes & tears in the fabric. I only wear them for Zumba, and expected more from them. It is interesting reading that others have had the same problem.

The pros: Fits well, comfortable, lightweight, nice color/style. The cons: The lightweight mesh wears out easily! They started getting holes on the sides (where my toes flex) within the first month. Now after 4 months there are more holes all over the sides. Looks shabby!

These are cute to look at and fun to wear. But basically they provide no support for aerobic dancing. They are just play shoes - which is fine - but understand that they are not serious work-out shoes.

Great looking shoe and comfortable when I put them one. Then I walked 4 miles and had to remove the shoes to get back. Not sure if I will exchange or just return.

I loved the look of these shoes, but shortly after starting to wear them, they developed many small tears in the material. Ryka has always been my go-to shoe, hope this isn't a sign of where their quality is going?

I need great shoes for Zumba. These are not great at all and remind me of nurses shoes. Not very low profile and kind of clunky looking. The best shoe was the Studio Flex Low but Ryka discontinued them. I have not been able to find anything to replace them.
