    These cross training shoes feature the new RZX technology which provides maximum cushioning and flexibility.

Become an expert

The Ryka Vida RZX was designed as a high-impact workout shoe. It also caters to those who incorporate lots of dance movements into their exercise routine. The shoe features the RZX technology in the midsole. It is comprised of the RE-ZORB cushioning in the heel for added shock-absorption and the Ultra Flex grooves in the forefoot for enhanced flexibility.

The rubber outsole of the Ryka Vida RZX protects the high-wear areas while delivering optimum grip and traction.

The pivot point at the ball of the foot assists the twists and turns during dance movements. It works together with the circled pattern on the outsole for a balance of grip and gliding.

The RZX technology of this Ryka trainer makes use of two design elements: the RE-ZORB compound delivers extra cushioning for the heel during high-impact exercises while the Ultra Flex grooves accommodate the natural flexibility of the forefoot throughout the movement.

The cushioning is further enhanced with the Anatomical Precise-Return footbed for maximum comfort.

The Ryka Vida RZX uses a combination of textile and mesh to provide lightweight and breathable support. The synthetic overlays are placed on all sections of the shoe to offer a snug fit.

The tongue and collar are padded to prevent chafing and to deliver additional comfort.
