I have worn them several times already and they fit just like the first pair, just perfect!
Perfect fit right out of the box, comfortable, nice looking.
I was skeptical to buy shoes with out trying them on but I am very happy I did.

    Size: 8.5 B(M) USColor: Black/Dark Pink/Grey Verified Purchase
    Aug 1st I started a weigh less journey and that means exercise. I had started running and found a great set of shoes for that, but then the weather turned cold and had to start working out indoors. I started the Insanity workout first using my running shoes and my feet were paying the price. At the time I was over 200# and I knew I would hurt some, but this was different and did not changed as I dropped over 30#s. I did a search and was hit by 1000s of links and reviews, but none were geared toward my needs and the questions I needed answered. A friend told me about this brand of shoe and I researched it. Their gear is for woman only. So that was a start. Read some reviews, the price was right so I committed to a pair. I am usually a size 8 (US) and printed out their size chart which told me the same. THEY DO RUN SMALL. I had to go to an 8.5 On the 8 my toes were right at the top of the shoe and a little snug I feel much better in the 8.5. I could not wait to try them out. My first work out was different. It was a different feeling on my foot because I was getting the support I needed so it felt odd, but I was not having the pain and I noticed my balance was even better. As I continued to work out with the I could feel a huge difference in that my legs were not fatiguing as much and my shins were not burning as much. I also noticed that even tho I knew my feet were sweating they were not HOT. Which is huge for me. Hot feet will stop me in my tracks. I highly recommend these shoes for intense cardio training that Insanity workouts bring. I do work out on carpet and they have not slowed me down at all. If you are a woman looking for a supportive shoe give these a try. I will wear these until the soles are no longer and get another pair.

    I bought two pairs of RYKA cross trainers. Of the two, these are fantastic! I originally thought these would only work for running, but they actually work for everything I do. I do kickboxing, step aerobics, P90X, weight training, bootcamps, running outdoors, and eliptical machines, these shoes help my flat fat feet during all of them.

    The shoes have good flexibility that conforms to your feet, while offering support. I bought new shoes because my old ones were causing knee issues, these shoes quickly reversed that problem, so I have no knee pain... at all!

    I STRONGLY recommend these shoes. They are perfectly made.

    First things first: HOLY CATS, THESE SHOES ARE SO FLIPPIN' COMFORTABLE.

    Phew! Now that that's off my chest, allow me to elaborate on why I am so enthusiastic: Athletic shoes and I tend not to get along. My feet are wide across the ball and middle of my foot and I have a somewhat low arch, which makes them hard to fit (I have literally ordered no less than nine pairs of athletic shoes in the past two months trying to find the right pair). And even when I find shoes that fit all right, there is always a blister-heavy break-in period. Enter these Ryka Exertions. I am still in shock as to how perfectly they fit my feet right out of the box. Not only is the arch lower and the toe box wider than every other cross trainer I've tried, but they're also feather-light, breathable, flexible, and have great impact absorption. The first day I had them I used them for an Insanity workout and it was the first time my knees, hips, arches, and/or lower back didn't hurt like a mother during or after. I also had much better lateral stability than I'm used to: they were excellent for side-to-side lunges/hops/etc. and for balancing during stretches. I definitely plan to order another pair -- I never want to work out without these things again!

    Now that I have finished gushing, I do have a note on sizing: I am usually a 9.5W, but based on reviews here I decided to order both a 9.5W and 10W and see how they fit. As it turned out, the reviewers were right: these babies to tend to run small, because the 9.5W smooshed my toes and were too tight across. However, as you read above, the 10W's were perfect.

    I like these shoes for doing Zumba. They have really good support, and you are able to move from side to side. They are really good when you jump, pivot, and do all the dance steps. I would highly recommend these shoes for any Zumba class.

    Fit true to size. I bought them for Zumba class because they have smoother soles. Still plenty of traction when you need it though. Great shoe.

    I've worn these for several classes now and they are awesome for twists and turns. They didn't take any time to break in and fit true to size. Awesome shoes!

    Perfect for indoor dance, stylish, breath well, true to size did cause blisters when I used them for outdoor zumba on a grass surface but ideal for wooden floors, very happy with purchase will buy again.
