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.

Very nice shoe - amazingly light, with stretchy fabric, but it runs small in length. Suggest getting the next size up.

I loved these shoes for Jazzercise. They offered excellent support for the entire foot. I was disappointed they only lasted 50-55 classes (not quite 3 months). The shoes were otherwise fantastic.

Love these pants. Usually wear them up, but looks nice down too. No draw string at waist, so you can't adjust. If you have larger hips and small waist, they will be hard to get on. Very comfortable and dry quickly. They do not leave sweat marks either! I teach all kinds of exercise (yoga, Pilates, Bokwa, Zumba etc.) classes and have received many compliments on these pants. I bought an XS (usually wear size 2-4). I am 5'3" weight 125lbs.

I love this shoe, if only I could find the right size. I usually wear a size 9 or 9 1/2 but both were too big. I'm trying for a smaller size. And I can say enough about Zappos. Greatest service ever. You are amazing.

Love the color & fit of the shoe, I purchased them for Jazzercise & found them to make a very big difference in my ability to do the moves because of the composition of the sole & the lightness of the fabric. Love them.

Good workout indoor shoe. Comfortable even with a bunion on one foot. Don't think about my feet at all during workout so that is a good thing!

I was so happy to see these shoes available on the website again. I am a Zumba instructor, and these shoes work perfectly for me. They are very supportive, but you can still move your feet, and you still get a good feel for the floor. They have the Ryka fit that I love: narrow in the heel, plenty of room for the toes. they accommodate my orthotics. To me these have the perfect sole for Zumba. I can pivot, turn, slide, but never slip. So happy!

First pair of Ryka's. Truly made for a women's foot. Comfortable, great toe box, cushioned support and overall a great value. Love the color as well, very happy with these shoes which I bought for my tread climber.

I love the Ryka dance sneakers. This sneaker is great, but my usual size was very tight and uncomfortable in the front/toe area. I had to get a half size up and it feels a little too big.

I've been looking for a pair of cross trainers for cardio/aerobics. Had a really hard time finding any wide enough. These are the best out there!! Very cushiony, and plenty of room in the toe box. Also, just the right amount of ankle support, while still giving me the mobility I need. Thanks again, Zappos for coming through!

These are my first pair of Ryka's, so far I'm very happy with them. They have a comfy, roomy toe bed and the shape of the shoe helps my foot to roll as I walk rather than walking flat footed. The arch support is also sufficient (for me, at least) such that I did not have to change out the insoles with Superfeet insoles. I bought these just before a trip to Boston where we walked all over the city, and I wore them all day, almost every day for 4 days in a row, straight out of the box. Very comfy!

When I first tried on this shoes, wow it WAS like walking on clouds. Super soft and plush. The shoe is a little on the heavier side which is okay, since the bottom is thick it means this "work shoe" will probably put in it's years of wear and tear. The only downside to this is, it's a BIT narrow if you have wide feet. I ordered it in Wide but it was still sort of narrow, esp. for work. If it wasn't for work then I would've been fine w/ it being I have heels/wedges that are way more narrow. The arch is a little high if you don't really have that high of an arch so it takes some getting use to. It kind of annoying/achy at first but you'll get use to it. Originally, I ordered the Ryka Dash and LOVED it being it was MORE breathable, roomy, and light weight but the color was not work appropriate being it was a light silver which was too close to being white. I was super bummed and sad. I wore it for a few hours at work and had to return it, which Zappos was amazing about since I work indoors. Once I wear out my regular walking shoes, I will definitely re-order the Ryka Dash brand for regular usage!

I love these shoes. I walked 3.5 miles as soon as I took them out of the box. No need to break in. No blisters, no hot spots. I will buy them again.
