I read through the reviews and chose this shoe because of the reported wide toe box. I have had problems with the width of other running shoes, and agree that the Ryka Motive's toe box is definitely more spacious than most, and fits my forefoot very well. I have worn Asics comfortably for many years, but have been looking for a lower price alternative. I also chose the shoe because I was looking for good cushioning, and the photos showed generously thick sole. The mid-foot and heel cushioning are great, but there is less forefoot cushioning than I would have thought. However, when I put in my green SuperFeet insoles, I found the overall cushioning to be just right (the insoles fit very well, even with the Ryka insoles in place over top). I also really like the light breathable forefoot fabric, which I think will be great in warm weather. My only complaint about the shoe is that the tongue is a bit narrow, which is only a problem with my extra insoles in place (I have a high instep). The shoes are so comfortable that I wore them around the house for many hours the day they arrived and they didn't call attention to themselves once (that's a good thing). I think this is a great shoe for the money, but time will tell whether they will "go the distance".

I'd also recommend: Asics

Very comfortable shoe. Breathable, so my feet stay cool. Roomy toe box and good support. That being said, I have narrow feet, thus with the extra room in the toe box, my feet have a tendency to slide a wee bit when taking my fitness class, but with thicker socks and tighter lacing, I believe that issue would be non-existent for me. I also love the bright turquoise color.

Thank you Zappos! I finally found a shoe that fits. I will be ordering another" Ryka motive great wide toe box & narrow heel & depth of shoe was an awesome fit. Realized i must have 10 1/2 and not a lot of places sell 1/2 sizes after 9 1/2 & not sure if that is because shoe makes don't make them or very few places carry them.

I'd also recommend: DANSKO IN THE CLOGS, CLARKS

I love my Ryka Motives...in fact this is my second pair. I have Plantar fascitis and Ryka was recommended for me. Zappos was inexpensive and very quick when I ordered them.
