2011 ABOUT.COM READERS' CHOICE AWARD
The legendary Chicane was awarded About.com's 2011 Readers' Choice Award for BEST Hiking Shoe. It won due to its versatility as the perfect shoe for trail, travel and as an overall comfort shoe.
IT WORKS PERFECTLY
"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."
ONE SEAMLESS ENTITY ON MY FOOT
"The shoe felt like one seamless entity on my foot: The insole cups the heel and supports your arch while the lacing system acts like a ribcage over the foot."
ONE OF THE MOST COMFORTABLE
"As the shoes wore in, they became one of the most comfortable things I’ve had on my feet in quite a while.."
