- Jewel: "Need good support for strength/aerobic classes."
sharon asked: recently broke ankle....need support in this area . does this shoe fit my requirement?
- Lori: "Sharon Ryka tennis shoes are the only tennis shoes out there that are based on the cut of a woman's foot and not a man's foot. Since it is based on the cut of a woman's foot you will run 1/2 to 1 size bigger in the Ryka tennis shoes. However, I am a Physical Therapist and don't recommend any other tennis shoe for any of my female clients and I won't wear any other shoe other then Ryka's. These are the only tennis shoes that don't hurt my feet after a full day of work. Hope this helps but you can't go wrong with any Ryka's."
- Mary: "Although these do provide some ankle support, I personally would go with another brand of shoe because these are a pretty soft leather."
- Lisa: "Yes this shoe gives great support!"
- Jennifer: "Yes... There is quite a bit of ankle support. I think they are great shoes."
- Traci: "While I think these shoes are wonderful and provide great overall support, I am not qualified to answer that question since I did not have a broken ankle and I am not in the medical field."
- Susanne: "These shoes are super comfortable. I use them for Zumba. It does give some ankle support...not sure if it will give you the kind you need for a healing ankle."
- Jane: "Yes, this shoe offers great stability and support. It was recomended to me by n instructor at my gym who I greatly respect and it has turned out to be my favorite workout/walking shoe."
- Berny: "Yes. These shoes are the only ones that provide exellent support around the ankle as well as laterally around the foot. Your ankle will be well supported."
- Ruth: "Yes, you will get ankle support. I bought for that very reason. I have two pair."
- Anissa: "On me the top goes to about the middle of the ankle bone. I would not expect it to give support like a high top shoe would but it is better than a normal tennis shoe."
- Leslie: "I have very flat feet and bad ankles. It held my ankle pretty good - although they weren't high enough to offer full support. The main problem I did have with the shoe was there was very little support for my non-arch foot."
