Great shoe -- and yes, it runs a half-size smaller than normal. Whoever said that first on this thread, thank you! I normally wear 6.5 medium and ordered 7 medium and it was perfect. Otherwise, this order would've shipped back from a really unhappy customer!

I do Jazzercise 5 times weekly and usually love Rykas but this style, made specifically for dance, did not perform well, for me. They look good, they feel comfy enough, good spin, no sticking, are lightweight but without much arch support or cushioning. Unfortunately, I really tweaked my knees since we do some jumping and really fast dance moves. So, back to my old Rykas for the time being, they are great. These are about 10 days old and will try some good inserts, see if that works...if not for Jazzercise, then they will be my walking shoe. Zappos you are great and have wonderful customer service, thank you for that.

While they may be the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned, they are also the least durable. I bought these shoes just 3 months ago and the soles are absolutely crumbling. I admit I'm hard on shoes, I work a physically demanding job on my feet (teaching preschool) but these had no tolerance for any kind of stress. I'm still a fan of Ryka, but if you plan of wearing these more than only occasionally I would recommend looking at another style or be ready to replace them in a couple of months.

Okay- I am not usually negative on reviews but feel like I should voice my perspective to possibly save someone the trouble of buying and returning these. I am 5'7, 125 lbs, athletic and do insanity and other jumping type workouts. These shoes felt pretty good out of the box, but I noticed the construction was very flimsy almost like canvas and definitely not meant for outside activity. Fine. I worked out in them about five times, and at that point they literally had no support or cushion left- they felt like slippers. Terrible shoes. Also had the ryka fitpro from the same purchase- was really trying to give ryka a chance bc I had heard good things. The fitpro were even worse. Sold them on eBay after one wearing. I will never buy ryka again- in my opinion at this price they are basically scam artists who make pretty shoes allegedly "for women only" but really for no one who actually needs a serious athletic shoe. I really can't imagine what these other reviewers are talking about- these shoes were junk to start and are now just going to goodwill. What a waste. Sorry to be so negative.

These water shoes are wonderful for my water aerobics class. I feel like I can run down the pool faster and in comfort since I have low arches. Great Buy!

Wonderful dance sneaker but it runs short! I had Ryka in 8.5 before, I should've gotten these in 9. Generous toebox and snug heel. The sole is an excellent combo of padded protection, and shaping for stability and movement.

Due to bunions, the inside edges of the toe box of any shoe I wear has to be 3.75 inches wide - or, of flexible mesh construction. These aren't quite wide enough for my feet. The leather seems durable, high quality - probably fantastic for long wear. I really needed a pliable material, though - ouch. Great looking for the price.

They feel a bit big, I bought these because previous reviewers said they had good support. I have issues with my feet and need that. I don't think they are supportive. My Zumba instructor is very high impact and my feet hurt after wearing these.

I have purchased other Ryka sneakers and enjoyed the look and stability they give. This style is cute, but the fit just isn't what I've come to expect. Just felt "flimsier" to me. Had them a few weeks and they're fine, just not up to my expectations. On the plus side, they are incredibly light!

These shoes are great. I have very sore difficult feet and they come in wide. They are great. They don't bind my bunion and fit well. Hope they last but will definitely buy another paid!

I have had lots of problems with this shoe brand. I ordered this shoe in the past and it was okay, but my three recent orders were all bad. All three pairs were size nine but the left side fit like an eight for some reason they were all like that and I had to send them back.

I have worn Ryka Radiant for a number of years. However, I have bad feet and have also developed arthritis in my knee. I did a lot of research on "the best" shoe and saw these. I love them! They are more supportive than the radiant and fit much better in the heel (not as loose). Wore them right out of the box and they are perfect!

I jazzercise in this shoe. It is comfortable. I say true to size but my workout shoes are always a 1/2 size larger than my regular dress shoes. They are of high quality so far. I'll see if they hold up for the 3-4 months I'll wear them for my workouts.

These are not my favorite Jazzercise work out shoes. They feel a little loose in the heel. Also, after 45 minutes, my toes are cramping and falling asleep which is unusual as Ryka's usually have a bigger toe box.

Been searching for a comfortable walking shoe for the gym. This one is perfect and has a memory foam insert that keeps my feet snug and cool. Plus there isn't any rubber on the side that rubs my union or corn on pinky toe.

Great shoe for the money. I wear these at work everyday. They have good support but are still lightweight. Very neutral in color which I like. Every year I buy 2 pair since I'm on cement all day and hard on shoes. I highly recommend these shoes. They run true to size.

Great water shoe -- comfortable! I tried two other pairs before finding these. Not terribly quick to dry as they actually contain some support -- you can walk in them! Attractive too!

Great shoes for Zumba and other fitness dance classes. Cushioning is adequate (I'm tall so feel that extra height on my feet). Great to pivot and spin around in.

This is a very lightweight cross-trainer with very good lateral support. The lacing system is a bit convoluted, but I solved that problem by skipping some holes, which worked fine. Bottom line, these shoes are perfect for cross-training, and very comfortable. Also, the silvery gray and turquoise are a nice change from white.

I love these water sneakers. They give me such support in the pool. I have osteo problems with foot base and ankles. These have made my aqua aerobics pain free. Love them

Great cushioning. Wore them to a Step Aerobics class and my feet and joints didn't hurt. As another reviewer mentioned, I found a half size larger worked best.
