I normally wear size 6 but my big toe was hitting the toe box so I have to exchange it for a larger size. I'm going to try to get size 6.5. The shoes are super light weight and the black/purple color is nice. The sides of the shoes don't have much support because it's mostly fabric so it may not feel supported. However, it's great jumping in them and it feels stable.

I am semi-pleased with the sneaker. It's comfortable and fits well but am disappointed that there isn't more arch support on the inside and that the side of the sneaker isn't higher for more ankle support. I love the grip on the sole of the sneaker and the styling is nice.

I have not yet taken these shoes in the water, but I have been wearing them around the house for days. They are very comfortable right out of the box. I put in store-bought orthodics and they fit great. I plan to use the shoes as my only pair on a kayak trip to Belize in February.

Love these sneakers! They are very lightweight and very comfortable for walking. Would buy them again.

Great for Jazzercise. I had knee troubles using normal walking/running shoes. The pivot on these shoes makes lateral movement easy and doesn't hurt my knees. Amazed at the difference. I have wide feet - and require a wide toe box for typical running shoes. These fit great. Pleasantly surprised. True to size.

I have 4 pairs of Ryka - big fan! At first these fit differently, little tighter. After I loosened the laces all the way to the toe, then tightened them to fit my foot, they were awesome! First day I wore them to Bosu, second day I wore them to boot camp and TRX. They were flexible and supportive. Lightweight too.

Was looking to replace Ryka Studio D shoe for Zumba and dance. Read reviews for Transition and decided to try it since Studio was not available. Transition's a great shoe for cross-training, weight training, walking, spinning, some aerobics and HIIT. But not good for Zumba or dance fitness classes, in my opinion. Toe box is too flat for dance movements such sliding, pivoting, kicking, or toe-pointing. The shoe provides good arch and heel support but too stiff and flat for (graceful) dancing. Still - overall a good shoe...glad I kept it. Plus - it is stylish...very on trend.

Love these shoes! I tried to love the Zumba brand shoes, which have great colors -- but the Ryka are so much more shoe. Great support, great snugabilitiy in the mid-foot, which I find critical for Zumba.

I think this shoe replaces the Ryka "Capture" which I can no longer find. The "Capture" was the best shoe for Zumba and also for practicing Ballroom/Latin dancing as well. I love it for Salsa classes because it allows you to feel your feet and it is very stable yet the bottom is super flexible which allows for turning and quick movements without sticking to the floor. Why Ryka stopped making this is beyond me! This was the only shoe I liked for dance that didn't hurt my knees/hips. Anyway, I found the Ryka Precision, though not exactly the same, has the same flexible sole. This is key to me! I don't like wearing dance sneakers with pivot points because they usually do not match where the individual dancer needs it to pivot. This bottom allows for smooth pivots/turns and gives stability. The Precision runs 1/2 size larger than the Capture and it seems a little wider, as well. I am not sure if I will like it as well as the Capture, but it is a least a close substitute. I think the eyelets look like they will tear easily, because they go through the plastic overlay instead of the fabric. I wish they would bring back the Ryka Capture, but we'll see if this one is similar enough for me to like it. If it helps, I have a narrow heel and a very high instep. This works well for me.

These shoes are super comfortable and they are true to fit. I have taught exercise classes for over 10 years and I always choose the Ryka for support and comfort. These shoes are just like "pillows" and my hips feel much better. Didn't have to add a different insole either. I've worn many different brands and always come back to Ryka. Customer service is great and you can't beat free shipping!

I purchased these shoes post bunion surgery for teaching my studio based fitness class. The wide width fits perfectly, and I love the memory foam sole inside. I highly recommend them for active folks with problem feet.

I did want to love these shoes. I have had heel pain and these shoes had great heel support. Very cushy and my heels felt much better as soon as I put them on. Also, okay width, my toes did not feel crunched, as I've found in other Ryka's wide width. However, the much needed heel cushioning pushed my feet forward in the shoe. I have longer big toes, and thought after wearing these all day they might hurt my toes. Also, knowing Ryka, I did order a 1/2 size up (they run a 1/2 size shorter), even then almost not enough room. Thought I would keep them anyway, since I had read other reviews on another web site that they felt small at first but your feet will adjust to the foam foot bed, keeping them stable. Just could not get over that the right shoe was more narrow than the the left (obvious just looking at them), not even matching shoes. Had to return.

I have wide feet, so I bought the wide version of this shoe, and it has fit perfectly! It's been much better than my Nikes...or my normal width Rykas.

Love this shoe. Is very comfortable. Great colors. I may have used half a size smaller, but can wear thick socks or an insole with these. Love the lightness, and am very happy with Zappos.

I've worn Rykas for years and years. These are great shoes -- always my first choice for either working out or simply walking my dog.

This was the hardest boot to return! I love love love the look of them but there is absolutely no arch support and the soles are rock hard. Very wobbly to walk in. I even tried putting in some over the counter insoles but then the boot was way too tight across the front. They appear in the picture to be cushioned but they are not. There is even a felt-like liner that makes you think they may be padded but they are not. I was SO sad to return them!!!

These are great shoes. I know my size in Ryka so I just order a new pair whenever the old pair wears out. I chose them because they have the cooling mesh areas. I usually wear sandals in the summer and my feet feel so trapped in sneakers if it gets hot. I don't have that problem with these shoes.

Love the sneakers, comfortable, flexible, and stylish. However, there is one drawback. The laces are too short to comfortably tie to allow more relaxed fit especially for a wide sneaker(which this was). Attempted to get longer laces with Zappos, as well as directly from Ryka, but neither could provide. These sneakers are 7 row eyelet sneaker. The suggested length for this type of sneaker is at least 45 inch laces. The laces provided with the sneakers were at least 5-6 inches too short. Needed to purchase longer laces, but could not locate same color;ordered another.

This shoe is a little "cheesy" looking with the shiny bands. Also the bands around the ankle are not close fitting but must be "just for show" as they seemed to serve no real purpose. And these shoes have virtually no arch support. I hoped to use these shoes for teaching low impact aerobics but I am returning them.

I love these shoes for zumba class. The circle part on the bottom makes it a lot easier to turn my feet for the dance moves than my old gym shoes. They fit well from the beginning and did not need to be broken in.

These shoes are true to size and fit my narrow heel perfectly. The support is excellent as is the comfort. I feel like I'm walking on thick sponges. Helps me not pronate my feet and therefore eases my knee pain. The gray color doesn't show dirt while the green and aqua accents add a little fun. Over all and excellent shoe and well worth the money. I've been wearing Ryka brand for years for my Jazzercise and enjoyed them very much. These are perfect for walking and just hanging out.
