After 15 minutes of zumba, I was in pain. 30 minutes in and I was in agony.

The only reason I purchase this is shoe is because of the reviews of others. I am a Zumba instructor and needed a new shoe that was supportive and light. The shoe is definitely light, but not supportive. I have little to no arches and suffer with ankle problems as a result. When I put on the shoes, it felt like there was no support for my arches and therefore my ankles. I was really hoping that these would work but just putting them on, standing up and walking across my living room, I knew they were not the ones. Returning!

I was concerned about buying shoes online, but these worked out great. I wear a size 7, and these 7s fit perfectly and were comfortable right out of the box. I chose Ryka because they have narrow heels and wide toe boxes. The shoes are very light, breathable, and comfortable. I use them for walking outdoors and indoors on a treadmill.

I walk a lot at work and these shoes remain comfortable all day. I got the blue/purple combo and they go well with jeans.

I wanted a shoe that was comfortable for aerobics on a carpet and gave my feet good support while exercising. This shoe has good support, it feels springy and well cushioned. I kept the shoes even though the heel slips a little. I tried a larger size first, sent for a smaller size, same issue. I can't go to an even smaller size because of the instep and short laces. I'm satisfied with the performance, but I wouldn't choose this shoe the next time because of the strange fit.

These shoes fit well and support my entire foot well. Plenty of toe room. I use them as my "around the house" shoes and they keep my feet comfortably when I am on my feet all day. My foot is supposedly an "8.5," but I find a "9" works for me in this shoe. I did get the regular width, which works well for me in this shoe, when with some shoes I need a wide.

I have worn these shoes for years and was disappointed that they didn't fit. The size I ordered was too short the the toe box was too shallow.

These shoes are comfy. I use them with orthotics because I have plantar fasciitis. I love the teal/orange/grey combo.

These shoes would be great but they are very wide. I ordered a half size up and the length is good but I had some slip in the heel and the width is way too much for my foot. I normally wear a medium so I would say these are for the wide foot even if you wear a medium with.

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 haven't bought walking shoes for years...and decided on these- glad I did. Love them- great price, and the colors are nice- white gets too dirty, so this silver and grey tone keeps them looking great!

First off, I absolutely LOVE the style of these shoes! So cute in the metallic plum. I wore them around the house for a while and unfortunately found them to be a bit snug across the top and sides of the foot. I have a wider toe box and these were too narrow. I measured them against my Asics and they are a good 1/4 - 1/2 inch narrower. Since they aren't offered in a wide and I don't need a bigger size length wise, I will sadly have to return these. I was really hoping this style would work for me.

I have suffered with bunions for years and have a very difficult time finding shoes I can wear all day. After the first day, these shoes have been hard to take off! I love them! No part of my foot hurts when I wear the Ryka shoes. This is my second pair of Ryka's, but this pair is more comfortable than the first. Love them!

As a physical educator, who taught lots of dance classes, I have used many brands of athletic shoes. I started Zumba last year and just got these shoes for class. As soon as we started doing pivot moves, I could tell the difference. The circular grip is amazing and the shoe is supportive and flexible. Other athletic shoes are not made for these kinds of dance moves; they grip too much which is felt in the knees. I'm so happy that I found the proper shoe for this kind of dance work-out.

These definitely run small. I waffled between 9 and 9½, so based on the other reviews regarding sizing, I even printed out the sizing guide and carefully measured my feet. It stated I should be an 8 or 8½, which I knew could not be right, so I faithfully ordered the 9 based on these results. That was too small as well as too narrow, even though my feet did not extend into the wide area on the sizing chart that I printed. The arch and pronation were also very off; so off I do not think this could have been from being just a little too small. The color is cool, fun, and different than most others on the market. They are unique and colorful without being too obnoxious.

I really like these shoes. I am a walker & often buy running shoes to walk in because they have more stability (in my opinion) than actual walking shoes. However, I have changed my mind after wearing/using the Ryka Dash. They are both comfortable and provide stability like I experience with running shoes. I like mine so much, I use them sparingly so I don't wear them as quickly as I usually do with tennis shoes. I highly recommend this shoe for any woman that enjoys walking; whether sport-walking, dog-walking or just walking with your loved one. Enjoy the comfort.

These are probably very comfortable shoes, but I am recovering from a broken fourth and fifth metatarsal and the leather strip goes right over the painful area. I am sorry to have to send them back. The other shoes were very comfortable.

A really cute style. It fit well, and I have width and bunion problems. However, the heels felt unusual to me. They felt hard when I took a step and landed on my heel -- I imagine like a rocker sneaker, although I haven't had any. Just not for me. I also ordered larger than my normal size. A size 9 was the same length as my Asics size 8 1/2.

I wanted a shoe I could use for my Zumba classes. After reading other reviews tried this one. It is a great shoe and I enjoy wearing it. Being determined I also got a proper 'Zumba' shoe from Zumba...not as good as this one! Perhaps the style I chose but not up to the Ryka Precision. Sizing: I wear a normal 8 shoe & ordered the same in the Ryka - too small. Ordered the 8.5 and perfect. Happy. Also, the service on returns from Zappos was terrific.

I was looking to replace a Ryka that was very similar. The only thing different on this one was that there is a small hard plastic-y reinforcement just under the arch. Couldn't use it. Made it too stiff, without the spring I loved in my Rykas. They don't make mine anymore.

Fits true to size plenty wide in toe box but felt flimsy, and no cushion on the bottom which is what I need. I think Ryka's Devotion is the one I want. As usual Zappos is great.
