Buying a second pair for Zumba

5

I do Zumba 2-4 times a week and the classes are as different as the teachers. Some classes are very dancey and I need a shoe that can do quick steps and turns without twisting an ankle. Other classes are more aerobic with lots of jumping so I need a shoe that can handle high impact classes. I usually end up with Ryka because they have the turn thing (??) in the soles that are great for the twists of dance. But often the shoes are too thin in the sole to absorb high impact activity comfortably. The influence is the first shoe I found that can do both very well! I am so thrilled that now that I have worn them for a month, I am indulging :) in another pair! I normally wear 6 in a street shoe and 6.5 or occasionally 7 in a running shoe but this shoe fits me best as a 6. So pleased with this shoe that I have told everyone in my classes to get them!

3rd Pair

4

These shoes are great! I would really rate them a 4.5 if possible I am a dance instructor and first discovered the Influence about a year ago. I wore those out, so bought two more so I could change them out. Since my first pair, I tried the Influence 2 and it fits COMPLETELY different - too narrow in the toe box and not enough heel support. My foot is fairly wide with high arches and insteps. The only thing that I would change is a little bit more cushion in the ball of foot, but that's me being extremely picky since I jump a lot in class. :-) I bought some of these for my mom, too and she loves them in class as well.

AWESOME Shoes!

5

This is my 4th pair! I wear them for Zumba, Groove, & FIght! They are lightweight, supportive, and the pivot point offers ease of movement in turns! Straight out of the box they are comfortable and ready to go! These are so much better than Influence 2! I find they run a little snug in my normal shoe size of 5 1/2: so I just order a 6! Please add some new colors and keep this shoe!

my favorites!

5

I have bought the Influence training shoe several times, in different colors. I've found them to be perfect for both Zumba and Les Mills Body Combat. They are able to withstand high impact as well as allowing me to pivot. They are attractive and come in a great variety of colors. I have always bought Rykas a half-size larger than my street-shoe size.

Influence Training Shoe

4

I am a trainer who does a lot of cross-training so I need a lightweight shoe that allows me to move quickly in all directions. These shoes allow me to do that. While they are comfortable they seem to be about a half size smaller than their marketed size. I'm not crazy about how they look, but a lot of my clients are complimentary! As long as they help me do my job, I'm good!

Great Shoe for Dance Aerobics!

5

This is an excellent shoe! I have one in every color (with the new color on it's way to me now!) and I wear them every day to teach Jazzercise. I recommend these to all of my customers, since they have great support, a wide enough toe-box (even the M) for expanding on impact, and the pivot point on the bottom for ease in turning. I love this shoe!

THE BEST!

5

These shoes are great for classes at the gym! I wear them for dance fitness and training workouts! They hold up well and offer good support! Love the pivot point for landing turns! These are my "go to" shoes;I have several pairs! I would love to see them offered in some new color combinations!

Great shoe!

5

My mom bought me these shoes last Christmas and I use them for HIIT classes as well as running. They provide great support and I have found that my feet don't hurt nearly as often as they used to when I worked out. Plus, they're such fun colors! I have not had a show fit this well, ever!

Fine for indoor workouts

5

These shoes work nicely, look great, and feel fine. As a YMCA member, I often workout there, however, but in a minimalist way I like one pair of shoes per workout and also walking to & from the car involves passage thru rain or snow at times, so I prefer a waterproof workout shoe... I cannot use the dropdown buttons for gender and age etc down below on my iphone.

Bunions Don't Scream at Me

4

I wear orthotics and was worried that with the orthotics, the shoes would be too tight. However, once I realized I could remove the pads in the shoes and simply replace with the orthotics, problem solved. These are comfortable so much so that my bunions aren't screaming at me by the end of the day. This is my second pair of Ryka shoes. I believe I am hooked.

heel needs to be narrower

4

I like these shoes but they slip slightly on the heel. I wanted a wide width but they were unavailable so I ordered 1/2 size bigger which was OK except for the heel. The next size down also slipped on my heel but I want them for jazzercise and I like the pivot point on the sole.

Works great for Jazzercise

5

This is the 3rd pair of these shoes I have purchased. These are the perfect workout shoe. They are a perfect comfortable fit right out of the box. Great support. Great fit. Stylish. Great quality! I would definitely recommend these for Jazzercise. Zumba or any studio class.

Great dance shoe!

5

I really like this shoe to do Zumba, and it has great gel supports in the tie region which help greatly. It prevents them from going numb with all the jumping around. it also has great lateral support which helps my ankle from inverting. I think it's far better than the influence 2, and I hope they keep the shoe, continue to sell this version.

Great shoes, thanks for wide width

5

Thank you so much for having these shoes in a wide width. I use these shoes with the turn spot on the bottom for zumba and I don't find the wide width very often. Please start carrying more of this shoe type in wide. I own at least 6 pairs of Rykas with the turn spot. Love all of them but most of the time I have to go up a 1/2 size to get the extra room.

Cute shoes

4

These are really cute shoes! I'm not sure if they provide the best support ever but I really like wearing them. They may be a bit too flexible for more sports, even dance and martial arts. I really like to wear them out and about though because they are so cute.

Great Shoes!

5

It feels different that moment i tried it on the first time. But i should have ordered 1/2 size smaller but I dont have plan to exchange it because I can wear a cushioned socks and still feels good. This is my 2nd pair of Ryka shoes....I love to dance and m luving Ryka too! :)

Cute Studio Shoe

4

I love the look of the shoe. I wanted a black shoe, but not too clunky. My only complaint is that it does not have the super cushioned insole that my other Rykas have. I wear a 7 1/2 dress shoe, but always order an 8 workout shoe, and I would recommend ordering a 1/2 size larger than you would wear in a dress shoe.

great shoe

5

I am a jazzercise instructor - teaching 4+ classes a week - and have been wearing these shoes for two weeks. I have very little arch and a very narrow / small foot. Shoes are a constant issue for me. I have been happy with these so far, they seem supportive and feel good around my foot.

Very Comfortable

5

These are one of the most comfortable shoes I have purchased to teach in. I have a wide foot and usually my feet hurt especially when I have to "break in " new shoes. These fit perfect;y and were comfortable from the moment I put them on!

Lots of support

5

I have been doing Zumba for about 7 years and have always used Capezio jazz sneakers. They were great for the dance part of Zumba but now i am finding that the classes i am taking are involving more jumping and these sneakers are great for that. Great support.

Good shoe but runs about 1/2 size small

4

My previous Ryka shoes were size 8 1/2. I ordered the same size in this shoe, but I wish I would have ordered a 9. The larger size would allow for the cushioned socks that I like to wear. Now I must use thinner socks.

This is a great aerobic shoe. I teach Jazzercise classes and need a shoe with good support and cushioning that can handle high impact as well as lateral moves. The Influence training shoe did it all! I will definitely buy it again.

I started Jazzercise classes about 6 months ago & had terrible knee pain until I switched my shoes to Rykas. I now have three pair & plan on getting more. Have to get all the colors to match my outfits ta know. :)

Love these shoes!

I have found that the top-of-the-line Rykas offer the best support, whether excuting forward-back or lateral movements. Great support for high impact moves as well!

Surprising comfort

5

I love the way they move during dance classes such as Zumba! The pivot point works really well so when moving across the floor or turning, there's no sticking. Would definitely recommend!

As a PE teacher I like to look nice. Needed a black pair of shoes and like the look of these black/gray Influence. They fit true to size. I also have a pair of Influence with the pink laces.

I have worn several pairs of the Influence style, and I been happy with every one. The tread holds up well for pivot moves, and the soles provide good overall support.
