RYKA is a shoe company that makes sneakers, walking shoes, and athletic shoes especially for women. They pride themselves on creating shoes that fit a woman’s feet opposed to creating a shoe for humans that are shrunk or expanded to fit men and women’s feet the same. Most of their shoes have wide insteps with narrow heels that fit the structure of the women’s foot better than most sneakers and walking shoes.
The RYKA Women’s Joyful Walking Shoe is a shoe that looks like a slip-on, but has the support of a walking shoe. They’re laced shoes with fine details like breathable mesh and molded EVA midsoles. We cover all the great things about these shoes as well as a few things you might want to consider before making your purchase.
Walking for your health is one of the easiest things you can do to lose weight and feel your best. It’s an activity that doesn’t require a gym membership or incredibly expensive equipment. All you need is the right pair of walking shoes, comfortable clothing, and a place to walk. While we don’t provide the last two things, we can help you make the choice of the best walking shoes for your favorite activity. You’ll figure out the rest once you have comfortable walking shoes with cushioning and bounce.
Even if it’s not the season for outdoor walking in your area, there are places you can walk to stay healthy. The local gym is one choice, of course, but you can also get creative with your walking workouts.
The California company Skechers has been creating lifestyle and performance footwear for years. It’s a billion dollar business that has thousands of styles. While they have tons of products, their performance shoes have been worn by athletes in every facet of sports from runners to pro golfers. In fact, their products have been endorsed by marathon champions like Meb Keflezighi and legends like Sugar Ray Leonard.
Whether it’s a gift for yourself or someone on your list, the best time to get walking shoes is when they’re on sale. Black Friday deals on Amazon will actually start on November 17th and run all the way until Cyber Monday. There are Deal of the Day savings to be found, too.
