here we are with another shoe review. thank you so much to chambanamoms.com and their sponsor planetshoes.com for asking me to be part of this special promotion. today, i will be giving my two cents on the ryka revive.
i might have squealed a bit when I saw the air mesh sides. (confession: my feet sweat. a lot. and it makes them a bit stinky.) my husband actually said, "those will be great for your sweaty feet." (at least he didn't mention the smell.) these are lightweight shoes with a nice flexible footbed. basically they keep my feet comfy and cool.
i like the bright colors and so does my three year old. her first comment, "they're PINK!" i won major points for that. maybe not my go-to colors, but they get my approval in the cuteness department.
a typical problem i have with athletic shoes is a tightness in the forefoot due to a wide toe box. right away, i could tell a difference with the ryka revives. they stay narrow in the back (no clunky look or feel) but widen where i need it. i can keep them on longer without needing a break from that achiness.
they are promoted as shoes for a moderate runner and, unless you count chasing three kids under five, i am more of a minimum runner. these do work great for my jumping jacks and lunges in front of the tv though.
the ryka revive is the first of three athletic shoes i was given to review. these are the most comfortable for my feet. i look cute and feel good wearing them. can't beat that combination.
