Nursing Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis

As a nurse, you are on your feet from the time you clock in to the time you head home. Standing on your feet all day can cause problems such as painful plantar fasciitis. There’s no “time out” when tending to patients and their health.

Unfortunately, virtually all nursing shoes are flat, which increases your chances of plantar fasciitis..

Imagine eliminating plantar fasciitis pain from your shift. How would your life change if there was a nursing shoe so innovative, it supported your foot so your body could heal from your plantar fasciitis symptoms? Imagine being able to last longer so you have the energy to provide even better bedside manners to your patients.

The unprecedented KURUSOLE™ technology has set the new standard for nursing shoes for plantar fasciitis. By working with nature, KURUSOLE™ custom adapts to your foot for superior stability, support and mobility. This proven footbed technology is so empowering to nurses that KURU is quickly becoming the #1 Nursing Shoe for Plantar Fasciitis Pain™.

It’s no wonder more podiatrists recommend KURU nursing shoes for plantar fasciitis.

Feel Better.



Introducing the New KURUSOLE™ Technology

When our team of medical and shoe experts set out to design a shoe to help those with plantar fasciitis, they knew they had to develop something that would transform your life.

The advanced KURUSOLE™ technology provides a medical-grade orthotic insert which hugs the contours of your feet to offer instantly-familiar heel and arch support. By cupping your heel, KURUSOLE™ helps keep your natural fat pad under your heel bone. This allows your body to naturally cushion your step while taking the sting out of your plantar fasciitis.

In addition, every pair of KURU shoes includes a pair of our custom molding Ultimate Insoles™. Using space-age foams, Ultimate Insoles™ use your body heat to custom mold to your feet for superior shock absorption. When a nursing shoe offers high levels of injury prevention, you have the guarantee of less down time from your pain.

Why Nurses are Susceptible to Plantar Fasciitis

As a nurse you spend more time on your feet than most other professions. You work longer shifts and have high numbers of patients to care for. Your stride varies from a consistent pace to haste, putting unpredictable pressure on the arches and heels of your feet. Because of the constant stress and relentless pounding placed on your feet, nurses are susceptible to plantar fasciitis.

If you suffer from plantar fasciitis you will notice a nagging heel pain, particularly when waking in the morning. The pain may increase after getting up from a seated position or after long periods of standing. Your plantar fasciitis probably began as heel pain. However, if left untreated, it can extend across the full length of the foot, from the heel, across the arch, to the ball of the foot.

Most nursing shoes don't provide the support your feet need. KURU shoes for nurses are built with KURUSOLE™ technology. KURU shoes offer a supportive arch, stabilizing heel cup and cushion that molds to your foot to keep you comfortable throughout your shift.

Powerful relief.



Preventative Exercises and Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis

Over the years we have helped thousands of customers find pain relief from plantar fasciitis. In the process we have learned a few tricks that can help your body heal from plantar fasciitis pain faster. Among the nurses who love KURU best are those who do the following exercises and treatments morning and night while wearing KURU throughout their daily shift.

These exercises and treatments include:

  • Roll it Out - Place a tennis ball under the affected foot and roll the foot back and forth while applying weight. This method helps stretch the muscles and tendons to relieve pain.
  • Ice It - Ice the bottom of the affected foot in the morning and evening to reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Strength Train - One exercise is called marble pickup. With this exercise, put a handful of marbles on the ground and individually pick them up with your toes and drop them in a box or cup. This exercise can strengthen your foot muscles.
  • Heel Dips - While standing, place your toes on the edge of a step and slowly lower your heel below your toes and hold for 15 seconds. This will stretch the achilles tendon and calf muscle.
  • Stretch at Night -For those suffering from more severe plantar fasciitis, wearing splints at night can be used to stretch the foot. Generally, these night splints stretch the heel and arch while you sleep, keeping the plantar fascia from getting contracted during the night.
