        Comments about Womens Ryka Tenacity Cross Training Shoe:

        I bought these because of a pair I had from 10 years ago were just too big. Getting back into Jazzercise they just weren't comfortable. This pair was the closest pair to the ones I had, so took a chance and ordered them... I LOVE them! They didn't take anytime to "break in", they give me exactly what I need to get thru Jazzercise! I will order these again when I need them!

                I bought these in black a while ago and liked them so much I added the red. They are very comfortable and provide good support with very little weight. I wear them for core classes and weight workouts without deadlifts or barbell squats. (I prefer a shoe with less "give" under my foot for those exercises.) I've gotten many compliments every time I've worn them.

                    I've worn this brand for years for Jazzercise, but the last two purchases were problematic as one shoe seems smaller than the other(left on one pair, but right on the next). I nearly gave up on Ryka, but these have restored my confidence. Good support, love high tops and roomy enough for my extra supportive insoles.

                        I have been looking for a good pair of shoes forever. I have plantar fasciitis but I love zumba so I read some reviews and they said these shoes were comfy yet good for zumba and they were absolutely corect.

                                    This is my 20th pair. I love the studio shoes. They are perfect for all dance fitness classes. I am a Zumba instructor as well senior fitness coach. They are perfect.
                                    They are especially great because they hav the spin circle so your fit do not get stuck. Very important for me as I have bad knees.

                                          This is my seventh pair of Ryka Tenacity high tops. I teach Step, Zumba, Active Adult, ect., and I've never found a better shoe. When I first started buying Ryka's low cut, not high top, years ago, they had some leather, so they lasted longer and had better support across the forefoot. I'm in about thirteen classes a week, and the moves push the foot toward the outside edge of the shoe. That's the first place they tend to wear because it's mesh now and not leather anymore. They are still the best shoe out there, regardless.

                                                      I love these shoes so much that I set up an account just so that I could write a review. I was worried about switching from my long-time favorite Downbeats, but these Tenacitys are an absolute dream come true. It's like dancing on clouds. Sometimes I end up with Rykas that are too wide in the front, but these are perfect (or are just Velcro-ed that way). I wear them for Zumba Fitness classes, and if they weren't twice as expensive here in Switzerland, I would buy a second pair and wear them on the street. Most marvelous thing I've ever had on my foot. LOVE LOVE LOVE P.S. Dear Ryka, please don't ever change or discontinue the greatest shoe ever made. Thanks!

                                                          I bought these in black a while ago and liked them so much I added the red. They are very comfortable and provide good support with very little weight. I wear them for core classes and weight workouts without deadlifts or barbell squats. (I prefer a shoe with less "give" under my foot for those exercises.) I've gotten many compliments every time I've worn them.

As a hip hop dance fitness instructor, they're not only super cool to wear during class, they're also great for ankle support and cushion for dancing on a wood gym floor.

I first bought the Tenacity because of the higher ankle support because I was having discomfort with lateral movement during Jazzercise. I have strengthened my ankles and lower outer calves to wear low tops. However, now that I am a Jazzercise instructor and work out at home and the studio, I need a comfortable shoe to take the "pounding" of my feet during high impact. It is also a shoe that feels 'broken in' when new, but yet comfortably supportive!

Great support, especially the strap over the mid-step to tighten the shoe. My foot is wide in front and narrow at the ankle but I don't have any slippage with this shoe. I love the black color because it goes with everything. This is my go-to shoe for everyday dancing and I have bought multiple pairs. I do often replace the insole with a more padded, support insole, since I dance every day, but most could get away with using the insole that comes with the shoe.

                                                                                                      This is my second pair of Ryka shoes, but my first high top shoes and I love them! I am a Zumba instructor and I find Ryka shoes to be supportive and stylin! The Tenacity gives me the ankle support for my high impact classes and the bottom of the shoe allows for great dance-ability. Plus wonderful arch support. And who can resist sparkly silver?!
