It’s the New Year, which means making resolutions that will be forgotten come February. But this year it doesn’t have to be that way. Rykӓ, is the only footwear company managed, designed, and solely dedicated to creating performance women’s athletic shoes. Understanding the importance of comfort, in particular areas based on how we carry weight, each shoe is designed to provide support in every step.

“The “Q-angle”(quadricep angle) – the anatomical relationship between the hip and knee – measures 5–7 degrees greater for women than men. As a result, women tend to shift more weight to the outside of their feet which leads to over-pronation, instability at foot strike and higher risk of injury. All Ryka sneakers, including Ryka walking shoes, are designed and developed taking into account a woman’s unique fit needs.”


Now what better way to start the New Year, ahead of others, than with a new pair of cross training shoes? We’re giving away, Rykӓ Women’s Precision in 8/39EU. X-Ray bracing system for support, high abrasion Exo-Shell and rubber traction outsole pads with dual density flex grooves will support those high-impact movement customary with training.
