Do not fit
Will be returning these - do not fit well and hurt my feet.
Poor Heel Design
Gave me horrible heel blisters right out of the gate. The heel cuts in too tight. Love the look and comfort , otherwise. So bummed about the blisters. They fit correctly, so I know it’s the cut of the shoe. It really digs in. My other Ryka shoes have not done this.
It is always difficult to fully determine what the product will actually be from the electronic description and pictures. I didn’t realize that there is no”tongue” on this sneaker. I have a high instep so not having the adjustable tongue has proved somewhat of a challenge. This is effectively managed by removing the laces and therefore not tying the sneaker. It does, for the reasons listed above, make donning the shoe a bit of a struggle. Once they’re on, they are comfortable and provide great support.
Comfortable Right Out of the Box
Wore these on a recent trip to CO and NM. Because I know the Ryka brand, I was OK about breaking these in on our trip. They fit well (like all the other Ryka tie shoes I have); looked good and hugged the trails. They also weren't too hot or heavy in my suitcase.Recommends this productYes
Best shoe ever - Except for the heel collar
I just received these shoes, tried them on and fell in love because of the way they feel like a sock with the added cushion and support however, the back heel collar immediately put pressure on that super sensitive spot and I knew it would cause blisters for me if I kept them. I literally wore them to my mirror down the hall and back - for less than 2 minutes in my house - and when I took them off I could already see the red marks on the backs of my heels. I know I wont be able to wear these and I really wish I could. I've been searching for a pair of trail shoes for quite some time now and I just LOVE everything about this shoe except that back heel collar. If all Ryka did was upgrade that heel collar to the plush fit heel collar, we would be golden and I would have the perfect pair of trail shoes that feel & fit like a sock, but with support and cushioning where I need it most. I also love the colors, design, just everything about them. I realize I should have read the reviews first before I bought these, as so many others have had the same issue with the heel collar and it would have saved me the frustration of loving these so much but knowing I cannot possibly wear them and having to return them. Ryka if you read this review, remake these shoes and in version 2, just change out the heel collar with the plush fit or something that won't cause blisters. And email when you do - I'll gladly test them out for you :)Recommends this productNo

Warning: Not a hiking shoe.
They are very comfortable. However, I wish they had a more aggressive tread. They did not work well on a decomposed granite trails as I had hoped. The shoe is not a true hiking shoe.Recommends this productNo
