Updates to Ryka Vivid RZX

  • The Ryka Vivid RZX is an athletic training shoe that makes use of the proprietary RZX: RE-ZORB cushioning technology of the brand, hence the name. This model has a low-cut design for optimal ankle mobility. It uses a custom-engineered mesh upper for comfort, flexibility, and breathability. It also features a round-toe style to accommodate toe splaying.
  • The Anatomical Precise-Return nestles the foot with solid heel stability to keep it steady during dynamic and explosive workouts. It also supports the arch to help correct pronation problems.
  • The midsole employs the aforementioned cushioning technology to absorb high impact. On the other hand, the Ultra Flex feature is installed on the forefoot for flexibility and cushioning.
  • A rubber outsole is meant to offer traction on different types of surfaces. It is strategically marked with flex grooves to promote natural foot flexion. The Pivot Point on the inner corner makes twisting and turning easier.

Ryka Vivid RZX size and fit

The Ryka Vivid RZX is designed to accommodate the foot dimensions and biomechanics of women. Buyers have the option of choosing from a wide range of sizes from 5 to 11 with half sizes available as well. This model is meant to fit those with either the B - Medium or the D - Wide width profile.

Outsole

A rubber material spreads throughout the entire bottom of the Ryka Vivid RZX. It displays a secure grip on different types of surfaces to reduce the risk of accidental slips. It is etched with flex grooves on the forefoot to allow the foot to move freely.

On the inner corner of the forefoot is the Pivot Point. It is a round and smooth section of the outsole that lessens the resistance during twisting and turning. It decreases the strain put on the hips and the knees.

Midsole

The Ryka Vivid RZX has a solid base that is made of two different components. The heel part utilizes the RZX: RE-ZORB cushioning to absorb shock during high-impact movement.

Meanwhile, the forefoot is made of the Ultra Flex technology. It is a flexible compound that gives a cushioned feel to the ball of the foot.

The plush Anatomical Precise-Return insole is designed to follow the natural curves of the foot. It is also meant to enhance heel and arch support.

Upper

The Ryka Vivid RZX uses a custom-engineered mesh fabric to create a comfortable, breathable, and flexible environment for the foot. It has a round-cut toe area to give room for the toes to spread.

The foot is locked down, thanks to the traditional lace-up closure. It has an adjustable cording that can be tweaked to suit the preference of the user.

A pull tab is sewn into the heel collar, which lets the purchaser pull on the shoe easily. It is ideal for those who have injuries or difficulties in bending down.

The padded tongue and collar aim to offer a snugger fit. It also protects the skin from chafing and irritation.
