The “Q-angle”(quadricep angle) is the anatomical relationship between the hip and knee – measures 5–7 degrees greater for women than men. Women tend to shift more weight to the outside of their feet which leads to instability at foot strike and higher risk of injury.
All Ryka sneakers, including Ryka walking shoes, are designed and developed taking into account a woman’s unique fit needs. I received a sample of the Dynamic 2 Training Shoes in purple/yellow ($74.99) and I can’t wait to try them. The price is also very affordable and would make a great Mother’s Day gift!
