Shock-absorbent platform

The Ryka Nell employs a midsole unit made of EVA foam. This compound is engineered to absorb shock to keep the foot protected against the impact from each step. The heel is elevated, giving the footgear a wedge design. This elevation aims to reduce the tension on the Achilles tendon during the walking gait cycle.
