One company – Ryka – designs and manufactures athletic shoes just for women, including women's running shoes. Ryka was founded in 1987 by Sheri Poe, because she saw a need for shoes designed specifically for women. Though now owned by American Sporting Goods, Ryka continues to support women's athletic programs and causes through grants, partnerships and sponsorships.
While we don't endorse any particular brand or model of shoe, most of Ryka's women's running shoes fare very well in the running magazine tests.
