Light and ComfortableI wanted something different for winter, so I tried these. They are warmer than regular “tennies,” but they are not overly warm. I like the heel and this has been a real help to the ole’ Achilles tendinitis. I love these and wear them every chance I can, they are cute. I bought them in wide, so I can wear socks in layers. Despite that, these shoes don’t look “fat,” if that makes sense to anyone. The only downside is the smooth tread. I think these will be too slip-prone for harsh WI winters.

Sooo cute!!Firstly, let me say this bootie is cute, cute, cute. I have worn them twice and had 3 people ask me what brand they were and where I got them. I bought this shoe in a size 7W since in the past I have found Ryka to be a little narrow and I wanted to be able to wear a thicker sock. I usually wear a 6 - 6 1/2 and my feet are a little wider than "normal" but not a true wide width. The shoe was little wide, but the length was good. I placed a thin lambswool insole into the shoe to take up the extra space, provide some additional cushioning and warmth (My feet are always cold in the winter!). I was surprised that the shoe was not overly cushioning in the forefoot. If you are looking for a shoe with a lot of forefoot cushioning, this will not be your first choice. This is definitely a "fashion" athletic shoe. I would not say this was appropriate for running or wearing to the gym.
