    I love how comfortable these shoes are and the look of them! It makes me want to be active when I put them on! I have been purchasing Ryka shoes for over 20 years and I'm never dissatisfied.

        Comments about Womens Ryka Charisma Walking Shoe:

        I have problems with my feet when I wear shoes that enclose my feet. They burn and ache within an hour of putting them. I have been wearing RYKA tennis shoes for probably 10 years and they are the ONLY tennis shoe I can put on in the morning and leave on all day. I also like that they are very light weight and breathable which I think helps the "burning" sensation that I tend to get in other shoes.

            shoes are narrow and slightly small. I have a very hard time getting shoes in womens styles, I thought this would be the answer but, I will not order more.

            Most walking shoes cause blisters immediately. Ryka is the only shoe that doesn't. These shoes are great

                Nice looking shoe but unfortunately it has no stability. If you pronate it has no support. I had to return the shoe because my feet hurt after an hour of walking in them.

                These were supposed to be my size, but after wearing them for just a short time my arches hurt so badly I couldn't even walk and had to lean on my husband! I tried to wear them for three days thinking my foot was the problem. But things never got any better.

                                  Love these shoes - even though they are for walking, I found them good for both dance movement and gripping the floor for fitness training. They definitely live up to the name Charisma!

                                    I have tried so many different shoes to work out in. I have several issues with my feet that my foot doctor said were caused by other shoes lack of fit and support. The pain I would feel after just walking in other shoes is gone. I highly recommend these shoes, I love them.

                                        I got the white. These look and feel great on. True to size. I walk 3 miles per day and have worn them 2 days so far. I feel for the long haul they may not have enough cushion at ball of foot and wonder about the arch support. Will give them a true test but so far good!

                                            This shoe has a wide toe box so blisters from rubbing don't happen. It is more streamlined then typical walker/runner, boxy, chunky type styles. Gives the illusion of long and lean feet. Even when adding an arch support insert, the memory foam cushion fits correctly. Wonderful Walker!
