If you haven't discovered the Ryka brand yet, you are in for a treat. First and foremost, Ryka is a company specializing in footwear for women. It makes all the difference in the world when such an important product is customized for the female anatomy. Until I found Ryka, my super sensitive feet suffered when forced into shoes that were essentially men's footwear sized down for women. For a long time, that was really the only option we had.
Imagine my delight, then, when I tried on my first pair of Ryka training shoes. My feet were ecstatic. For the first time in, well, forever, blisters, sore heels, and aching arches were a thing of the past. Fast forward to today — nearly 15 years and thousands of miles since buying my first Ryka fitness shoes. Having previously owned four pairs of their running and cross-training shoes, it was time to purchase a pair specifically geared towards walking. In case you are wondering, yes, it does make a difference when you wear shoes made for a particular activity.
It was easy to choose the Ryka Devo (Devotion) Plus 2 walking shoes. They are wildly popular and are a best-seller on Amazon. As I skimmed through a sampling of hundreds of five-star rated reviews, it was apparent why so many women are totally devoted to this particular Ryka shoe. As soon as my new shoes arrived, I joined the legion of fans.
Right out of the box I experienced something quite rare: no break-in period with the Devo Plus 2 shoes. Amazingly, I was able to immediately walk for miles without my usual knee pain. What a relief! Here are a few additional things I love about my new Ryka walking shoes:
- Luxurious cushioning.
- So lightweight I barely know I am wearing shoes.
- Breathable mesh that keeps my feet perfectly cool.
- My feet feel refreshed even after a 12-hour day on the go.
