Can't say enough good things about this shoe. Great wide toe box, massive support and cushioning is thick but firm. I sized 1/2 up because I like toe room on downhills and thick socks, but otherwise true to size. Going for a second pair. Ryka rocks.

Love these shoes! I use them for my heavy-bag kickboxing classes and they are awesome. Feels like I'm jumping on clouds. I'm usually between a 8.5 and 9 and sized up to a 9.5 (my usual size for running shoes) and I probably would have been fine with the 9. But they're not too big to bother me. Love them!

So bummed! Tried these shoes for Jazzercise and they did not have enough support under the foot. They are light and attractive but I have to return them. I have been wearing Rykas for years but this shoe is a lightweight.

I love these shoes. They are very comfortable and fit true to size (I wear a 7.5 and that is the size I ordered). I ordered these shoes on Monday, received them on Tuesday (next day) and will wear them Wednesday to work out! Great price and color is true to picture.

I am loving these shoes! After reading other reviews I saw that they run a little small, short so got 1/2 size bigger than usual and they were so comfy right out of the box! I have plantar fasciitis and have only been able to wear Earth shoes for the past 10 years. But when they re-designed them with a very thin insole and almost no heal cup or rubber on the bottom, I went looking for something else and found these Ryka's! I love them! My feet don't hurt even when walking for quite a while. And they are very pretty! And cheaper than what I had been buying so you can't beat that! Now please, don't "re-design" them! If it ain't broken don't fix it! And Zappos of course, delivered the very next day which is so awesome! Love Zappos?

I've used these shoes for weight training and moderate cardio work-outs for 4 solid months, averaging 3 days/week. They've retained about 2/3 of their energizing springiness. The toe box seems wide, and the tongue slides off-center, though these haven't bothered me. I am online to re-order the same shoe.

The most padded comfortable shoe I have found. Has been the only shoe I can walk long distances in since a bout of plantar fasciitis. The lack of arch makes them comfortable. I think I have gone through 5 pairs!

I love Ryka shoes for Jazzercise. I do it three times a week so, I need a good shoe. I usually get the Ryka Ambition but, zappos didn't have my size so I tried these Dynamic. I love the color choices and they are comfy, good support and good cushion on the sole. I think the Ambition have a bit more cushion but you can't go wrong with Ryka.

I found a blog that highly recommended Ryka shoes for Zumba classes. My last pair left me with irritated knees, so I was hoping that this shoe would do the trick, and am happy to say that I am very pleased. I gave it 4 stars for comfort because I normally wear a wide shoe and these only come in medium; however, the toe box is nice and large, but the shoe is narrow in the arch. A couple of Zumba classes took care of that! My other recommendation is to order the size you normally wear for tennis, not your regular work/dress shoes. The 8M was too small; the 9 1/2M is a perfect fit.

This sneaker is by far the best that I have ever worn! I'm so glad I've finally found the perfect sneaker! The arch support is great, the toe area is wide enough, and there is ample cushioning under the ball of the foot, where I tend to have issues and discomfort with most footwear. I like the breathability, and I like the color. I would definitely purchase this shoe again!

These look and fit great. However, I teach Jazzercise, and I find that my toes go numb at the top of the curve in these. The sole is higher in the heel that the toes, which I believe is the reason. I would suggest the Fit Pro over these for workouts with lots of high impact jumping.

I have purchased Ryka shoes before and have always loved them. They fit my foot better than any other shoe. I wear an 8 in all other shoes but always have to go to a 8 1/2 with Ryka's. It would be great if they would come out with some bright colors, but that won't stop me from buying this brand. Try them, you will like them!

I bought these shoes for zumba and they have great support and work well for all of the moves on our hardwood floor.

Finally; it's a KEEPER! I've been looking for the past two months for just the right shoe for Zumba. After several orders and returns this shoe is a success! Here's why... My age: I am 60 years old and do Zumba 4 times a week. Age has nothing to do with this except that my feet are also this old. I needed stability, support, and most of all cushion in a shoe. The fit: This shoe runs narrower than the Nike's I was buying, but, the mesh is a nice breathable material that also stretches to fit comfortably. I normally buy a size 5.5 in Nike and decided to buy the same in this shoe. Again, a good fit. The style: I had searched for a shoe with a pivot point in the sole. I first tried Nike since that's my always-fits-well brand. I wasn't impressed with their shoe because it was more like a flat dancing shoe. The Zumba brand felt like jumping on a piece of cardboard. I also tried the Ryka Transition but it also did not have adequate cushioning. Ultimately I decided to try the Ryka Precision. They have good arch support and the width of the sole with the little edge gives me the stability I need for balance. It does not have a pivot point but after wearing them to my first class I knew this was the right pair. The flat surface of the shoe and the slits on the sole make this incredibly flexible going forward or sideways. One thing to mention is my Zumba classes are now at a gym with a rubberized floor. I'm not sure how 'slick' they would have been on a regular gym floor but for me, they're perfect!

This is my second pair of Ryka Dash shoes. I bought them to use for Zumba. Very comfy and supportive.

Was pleasantly surprised, they fit great right out of the box. Haven't worn Ryka in years and had been having a hard time finding sneakers that fit well. Thought I'd try them again and think I'll stick with them from now on. Love the dark grey and light grey combo, the green is soft so it can go with lots of different colors. Would buy again.

I tried 3 other cross training shoes before getting these awesome Rykas! They made me feel like I was floating on air the first three times I wore them. Excellent shoes for Jazzercise. First couple of times had a little problem with shoe sticking to floor & not moving when going side-to-side. This was not a big deal, but wanted to mention it. I tried 2 New Balance & 1 other Ryka and they made my feet hurt. So glad that Ryka finally went back to making W width cross trainers. Recommended these to my friend, who also has wide feet. She bought them too. Finally glad to get a wide pair that are not black as last 2 pairs have been black or grey.

They were too small. Since I already wear a size 11 I don't have the luxury of going up a half size for another pair. Pretty disappointing since Ryka has never let me down before.

Comfortable, supportive and extremely light. I was able to do a full run the first time wearing these shoes with no problems at all. Fit is true to size.

The most comfortable athletic shoes I have ever had! I did order half a size bigger because of other reviews. Thank you Zappos for your super fast shipping...one of the reasons I love shopping on your website.

I have worn these 5 times now and they hurt the bottom of my feet. They are much wider in the toes than most shoes and my foot slides around and gets blisters. I purchased for dance class and the side to side motion makes my feet slide around. I would return them if I could.
