A woman named Sheri Poe created ryka in 1987. Armed with an entrepreneurial spirit, and frustrated by the lack of well designed athletic shoes for women, Sheri decided to create a footwear brand that fit. Although Ms. Poe no longer runs the company (we are privately owned by American Sporting Goods Corp.), we are proud to carry on her work of creating performance fitness products for women and the brand's mission of enhancing women's lives through fitness. Today ryka remains committed exclusively to women.
About Our Footwear --- All ryka shoes are made on a woman's last (the mold or shape of a woman's foot), and are designed and developed taking into account a women's unique fit needs --- narrower in the heel and wider in the forefoot (it's not just you, our toes need more room and our heels slip too). Outstanding fit and exceptional comfort consistently place ryka shoes among the highest rated in the industry. After all, if your shoes don't work out, neither will you.
