Mary asked: I wear orthodics with my New Balance sneakers size 11 (2A) or Narrow. I was told that Ryka Excel or Endurance work well in Zumba classes. My concern is mainly size and width. I have a narrow foot (2A) and wonder whether a size 11 Med., the narrowest this company seems to make, will work for me. Are these shoes true to width. Might be too wide on ???

  • Brittany: "mine fit exactly the way they say they should. I love rykas i have this pair and a hot pink & black pair. I work in a warehouse 40+ hrs standing on cement basically the whole time so your shoes make a difference. These shoes are weightless which is great. Hope this helps."
  • Kathy: "I take a medium width and they fit me perfectly. I have been wearing Ryka for many years. It is the only brand sneaker I will buy. They do have a wider fit at the front of the foot area so they may be a little wide for someone with a narrow foot but it is worth a try. I also use my arch supports in them and plenty of room for those without being tight. Hope this info helps a little."
  • Connie: "I love Ryka shoes! But i dont have a narrow foot so im not sure i can answer your question."
  • Paula: "They run a little small...I usually wear an 8 in shoes and I wear an 8 1/2 in this one...but I am on my second pair because they are my comfortable. They don't seem exceptionally wide to me.... Hope this helps....."
  • Cindy: "I had to go up a size since the fit was narrow. The shoe also seems stiff and not as cushioned as other Rykas i own."
  • Katherine: "I don't wear orthotics and don't have a narrow foot that I know of, but I wear the Excel a lot to Zumba and have no problems. They don't feel quite as stable in side to side motion as my other Rykas (KR1815WVLP which aren't in stock here right now) but if you want really good support for all the side to side movements in Zumba I would look for one of the Rykas with the Q-Angle P.C. ™Pronation Control or S.G.S. ™ (Skeletal Guidance Shank) because the shoes I have with those are even more supportive for Zumba in my opinion. Either way they're probably worth a try, I've loved every pair of Rykas I've bought."
  • Judy: "I love my Ryka's! I wear a 7.5 and they fit perfectly. I also wear them during my zumba classes -- actually I wear them all of time. They are very comfortable. I highly recommend them!!"
  • Elaina: "I have a really narrow foot and they fit me how I expected."
  • Tammy: "My daughter wears these shoes to Jazzercize. Her feet are a little eider and she said they are a little narrow. She likes them a lot and feels they are very neutral."
  • Michelle: "They are made of a stretchy fabric so I think cinching them would make them comfortable for you without pinching. The area around the heel is very cusioned and hugs the heel well. I hope this helps. Good luck!"
  • Jennifer: "I have found this brand to be narrow through the arch & wide in the toe box ao your toes have room to spread out."
