I'd like to enter too.
The versa Mary Janes are perfect, and I'm in love with the Dia Fluid tee because it looks like something you could where anytime, any place!
I am in love with the Ryka Mary Janes and the Racer Back Tops. I love to do yoga and I am currently training for a 10k - my first! I love Ryka stuff!
I'm an essential pant and racer back top (in seaspray) kind of girl. I'm on a yoga kick. I'm excited to know Ryka.
I wore Ryka sneakers when I did the Breast Cancer 3-Day. I got sick on the walk but my feet felt great. ;)
Enter me! Enter me!
mod*mom, so glad you introduced me to Ryka. What adorable things and just
thanks for entering gals!
some of the items not available on ryka.com are actually on zappos.com
I was wearing Ryka before they even had a website--before there was the internet in fact. In a way I feel like "my little secret" is out of the bag, kind of like your favorite Indy Band being signed by columbia records and playing at all the large stadiums, when you used to see them for $12 at a small bar. BUT, it is for good cause that RYKA is overtaking the market--they make the best shoes. I got my first pair when I had shin splints junior year of high school, and our trainer recommended Ryka. I have only cheated on them once since, when I bought Saucony--it was a regrettable affair, if you will. I love RYKA. LOVE them. N-Gage are great shoes. I wish I had easier access to their apparel, but there isn't a store in London yet, at least not that I know of. Here's to hoping though.
alena: look at their store locator page for online retailers
OK-- I LOVE the crop pants and mandarin jackets... I could use some ryka in my life.
My contest entry is definitely two favorites! The Mary jane running shoes and the yogo wrap hoodie! Love them both
I have never heard of this brand before, but I am a fan now! I loved teh cropped pants for yoga and the mary Jane running shoe is adorable!
I love the veritas mules and the mary janes. I also like the essential crop pants. the Empire Cami and the Dia Wrap Hoodie. I love it all!!
I get depressed about working out sometimes because I have a lot of health problems, but Ryka's yoga gear, especially the cropped pants and racer back tanks, really help me to feel better about myself and make me get out to the gym!
Ohhhh - Count me in! Cool prize Mod*Mom (am I surprized? Nope - you are the queen of cool).
Oh! Oh! I want in too! :D
Can I play too?
the Dia Fluid Tee is great!
very cute stuff...love the mary janes and the essential crop pants!
Enter me! I would love to win some Ryka wear.
I could definitely use some new blogging pants.
I'd love to win some of the crop pants, hoodies and mary janes!
Enter me, please! I love their MJ's and would love another pair.... :)
Ohh Enter me please!
Pick me, pick me!! I love the Mary Jane's and the Dia Fluid Tee. I can picture wearing these to Pilates. Love it!
Well, I don't own any of their products, but I could really use a new pair of excellent hiking shoes (and those on your site are SOOO cute!) Even tho' I am in denial, I am learning that my aging body needs a little more support, especially as I am increasing the miles I walk in a week. My back and knees would trul appreciate these shoes! Keeping my fingers crossed that my name gets pulled from the bin! ;)
Hi there - I am a professional mom and a member of BAYS too (although
I love athletic clothing that is stylish enough to go run errands to and from the gym - the wrap around hoodie is a gorgeous piece - i don't find it for sale, tho! I'd also LOVE to get a pair of the black mary-janes - I would wear those to the exclusion of everything else in my closet!!! Great stuff - great promo to those of us in the "cancer club". Thank you!

I've been wearing the Mary Jane to my Jazzercise class for years. It's my favorite style of shoe, so of course I gravitated toward the Ryka. It's comfortable, suitable for the level of exercise I do and they're stylish. Every time I wear them, some asks me about. Love 'em!
Outfit AND shoes? That you can wear to workout AND to run errands. Choose me please!
Their yoga clothes are graceful and serene. And the Mary Janes.... create total shoe lust!
I LOVE my Ryka Solace shoes! The first time I put them on, I jogged across the street and started giggling because it felt like I was floating!
enter me for sure! They are GREAT products! THanks!
Holy Moly those shoes!!!!
sign me up! I love Ryka clothes, they fit so well and feel amazing. I especially love the yoga stuff and the dia wrap hoodie.

I have never heard of Ryka, but I love shoes that are stylish yet comfortable!
The Mary Janes are to die for. And now that I've lost 30lbs. I would love to sport some ryka yoga pants & top.
I'd never heard of Ryka, so obviously I've been missing out. I really didn't realize that cute sporty clothes existed. Silly me. I could stand to win something. Convert me!
