Ryka Woman's Athletic Shoe
Ryka recently invited me to CRUBOX LA and I had a blast, not only because of the kickboxing class but I got to try out Ryka DEVOTION XT MID TOP TRAINING SHOE. It was the most comfortable shoe I’ve worn, it felt like I had pillows wrapped around my feet. Mamas this IS the sneaker to get when you’re running after your little one, or spending the day at a theme park or most importantly, every day when you’re just doing what you do, moming hard!
Ryka knows that a woman’s foot shape, muscle movement, and build are all inherently different from a man’s. The "Q-angle"(quadricep angle)--the anatomical relationship between the hip and knee--measures 5-7 degrees greater for women than men. As a result, we tend to shift more weight to the outside of our feet, which leads to instability at foot strike and a higher risk of injury.
Our design philosophy integrates all of our technologies into one of the most researched, women-specific fits in the industry. A complete footwear solution customized to fit the shape of a woman’s foot perfectly--with a narrower heel, roomier forefoot, increased instep volume and a more secure footbed. The result is footwear engineered to address our unique biomechanics for unsurpassed fit, comfort, cushioning and control.
