When you step into Ryka, you step into more than a shoe--you step into a world Made Just For Women.
You join the tribe. You find community and support. We are stronger together than we are apart--and that is how we choose to move through life. Because our feet are different than his--and we think our individuality is a pretty amazing thing to celebrate. For 30 years, our Made for Women mentality has been a way of life--a guiding principle for creating footwear exclusively designed for a woman's unique foot shape, muscle movement and build. And we're just getting started.

Your Fit, Your Shoes, Your Life Lived in Ryka.



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 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.


We are stronger together than we are apart. Ryka believes that a woman's participation in fitness programs builds and strengthens her self-esteem and confidence. With this in mind, we support fitness industry professionals through our Ryka FIT program and alliances with various fitness groups like Jazzercise, Curves and R.I.P.P.E.D.
