- The Ryka Klick is crafted as an athleisure shoe, meant for both fitness walking and sporty casual wear. Its slip-on construction with elastic crisscrossed straps on the instep helps the wearer to slide in and out of the trainer effortlessly.
- The footwear features moderate arch support both internally and externally. Inside, the contoured footbed is raised in the area under the arch, while outside, a thick layer of rubber outsole wraps the medial portion of the platform.
Just like any other Ryka walking shoe, it caters specifically to a woman’s foot with a snugger heel and a wider forefoot. It comes in a selection of full and half sizes as well as in both B - Medium and D - Wide width profiles. There is no lace-up closure to adjust the fit, but the foothold is delivered by the crisscrossed elastic straps. They remain taut when the foot is inside but stretch easily when the shoe is put on or removed.
The Ryka Klick utilizes a full-length rubber outsole to guard the platform against abrasion. It features a flowery lug design which adds traction with a feminine flair.
The “flower” under the ball of the foot serves as a pivot point. It smoothes the rotations and changes of direction throughout the movement.
The curved cut-outs are placed across the unit. They help the shoe to bend along with the wearer’s foot.
A traditional EVA foam midsole is employed for cushioning. Its lightweight and responsive nature bounces the impact upon each step to keep the lady’s foot comfortable and protected.
An Anatomical Precise-Return footbed is found inside the trainer. Its contoured design offers support for the arch as well as a deep heel cup to hug and stabilize the foot. It is also padded for extra cushioning. The footbed is removable and can be replaced with a custom orthotic insert if necessary.
The Klick from Ryka combines mesh for breathability and synthetic overlays for support. The mesh fabric makes up the interior shoe lining and is used at the toe box to keep the foot chamber fresh and aerated.
The synthetic material wraps the bottom of the upper to enhance durability and support. There are double layers used around the heel to add stability and protect this high-wear area even further.
The crisscrossed elastic straps on top are responsible for securing the fit. They stretch to let the foot in and out but remain tight once the shoe is on. They also make this model fall under the slip-in walking shoe category.
