The award-winning CHICANE is our best-seller that keeps getting better. In fact, it is a leading light hiker that fits more feet, out of the box. It's no wonder it has won both the 2011 and 2012 Reader's Choice Award for best trail walking shoe. Designed as the perfect casual shoe for traveling and light hiking, the CHICANE has become a favorite among many of our most loyal fans.

The innovative, asymmetric tongue shape of the CHICANE is designed to follow the curve of your instep. Since the height of everyone's instep is different, this unique tongue shape allows the CHICANE to adapt to even the most difficult to fit foot shapes. In addition, a smartly placed tongue gusset helps keep debris and gunk out of your shoes.

Questions about CHICANE - Men's Trail Hiking Shoes


Ask a Question
  • Do you find this question helpful?  Yes No
    • Q:

      Are these shoes good for people who are there feet all day? Ex...concrete,asphalt and other hard surfaces? Thank you

    • A:

      yes, I often recommend the CHICANE style for standing all day. The CHICANE style is our best loved, best selling style. It offers a sturdy foundation and a thick, rubber cupped sole with aggressive traction. It also contains the same support and technology as all our other shoes to help realign the body from the ground up for better posture and walking gait. They are also the most durable.

    Do you find this question helpful?  Yes No
    • Q:

      What kind of sole do these shoes have?
      I do a lot of walking on roads, and want to be sure that the soles will hold up to wear on asphalt.

      Also, is it possible to re-sole these, and if so how would I go about getting it done?

    • A:

      The CHICANE style is our best loved, best selling style. It offers a sturdy foundation and a thick, rubber cupped sole with aggressive traction. It also contains the same support and technology as all our other shoes to help realign the body from the ground up for better posture and walking gait.

      We do not currently offer a re-sole type service. Experts recommend shoes be replaced every 500 miles. Most customers get about 1-1.5 years out of their KURU shoes. If your soles need replacing, it is most likely time to replace the full shoe.

    • Q:

      My regular sport shoe is the Saucony Omni 12(or 13). It is a good shoe for me, but I need something I can wear with jeans and khakis. I'm on my feet and walk a lot. I have a high arch that has flattened in recent years. How would these shoes be for me? Can they get wet? I normally wear a 10,but an 11 in the Saucony.

      I can be hard to fit.

      Can you help?

    • A:

      The CHICANE shoe is an excellent shoe. It is our best seller and looks great with any kind of look you are going for (Jeans/khakis) However, it's not an athletic shoe. For that, I recommend the QUANTUM or CARRERA styles. The CHICANE is a trail/travel shoe with a thick rubber sole and aggressive traction.

      KURU shoes begin with anatomically correct arch support. (For those with high arches, this might not seem like enough at first, whereas those with low arches may feel like it's too much. However, over time, they use your body heat to mold to your exact foot shape, so you get a custom fit, and exactly the support you need, no matter what kind of arch you have.

      We suggest you wear your shoes 2-3 hours per day for 2-3 weeks to give your foot time to adjust to the shoes and your shoes to mold to your feet.

      None of our shoes are waterproof, so you shouldn't get them wet but they will be okay with a little water in the rain or snow. You can also use our KURU Shield spray to help protect them from water damage.

    • Q:

      The Chicane Mesh or the Chicane black leather would be best for walking and working on concrete?

    • A:

      That is a great question in reference to which would work better. The great thing is they will perform the same when it comes to walking and working on concrete. The main difference you will find will be in the temperature and weight. The CHICANE Leather will be slightly heavier and warmer whereas the CHICANE Mesh will be slightly lighter and breathe more.

"I love discovering small, independent shoe companies...Kuru’s special feature is a specially-designed curved sole that works to spread out the weight of your body coming down on your heel. As far as I'm concerned, it works perfectly."
