Just like its predecessor, the third iteration of the shoe is meant for daily walking. Be it shopping, running errands, commuting to work, or spending a whole day at work on your feet, the Ryka Devotion Plus 3 is ready to support you.
Instead of a full-length rubber outsole, the shoe employs eight pieces of rubber that are strategically placed throughout the platform. This design is called a radial skeletal outsole and is meant to protect the shoe without adding too much extra weight. It also allows the sole to be more pliable with the flex grooves found in between the rubber pods.
The Devotion Plus 3 offers its cushioned support through a combination of the EVA foam and the proprietary RE-ZORB foam. According to the brand, the EVA compound has a lightweight and responsive nature, while the RE-ZORB active foam provides additional shock absorption and protection against impact.
An extra Anatomical Precise-Return insole is also taking care of the foot’s comfort. It is meant to give additional arch and heel support throughout the walk.
The basic material used for the shoe’s upper is a breathable mesh textile. It features larger ventilation pores on the toe box and on the sides to keep the foot refreshed and free of unpleasant odor.
The third iteration of the Devotion Plus introduces intricate iridescent overlays on the sides. They not only add a bright touch to the footwear but also serve a functional purpose. These lines give structure to the facade and thus, enhance side support.
A smooth fabric lining creates a cozy in-shoe feel. On top of that, the padded collar and tongue form secure and cushiony support around the ankle.
