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.

Arch Support
Excellent sneaker.
This sneaker has performed every bit as good as I was told it would. The comfort of the cushion and since I purchased the sneaker because of plantar fasciitis, I can walk in comfort again. I had to return the first pair because the sizing, and that was handled easily.
I am impressed with every aspect of this experience.

Arch Support
Two Weeks ...and I'm in Love
This pair of Chicane shoes are by far the most comfortable walking shoes I have ever owned. About a month ago, my plantar fasciitis issues started to act up, so I ordered the Chicane shoes to help in the recovery. I was amazed that within hours my feet felt better and the pain from my plantar fasciitis had for the most part vanished. I have ordered the Kala Leather Sandal and look forward to a comfortable walk at the beach in two weeks.

Arch Support
Nice shoe with great fit.
I have a fallen arch in my left foot and partial in my right so buying shoes is a chore for me now. I came across the "Kuro" website and ordered these shoes on a whim hoping that they would be good. Well, I ordered and got the free shipping and received the shoes in about 4 days which was great. The shoes are good right out of the box and will get better as the shape to the form of my feet. Couldn't be happier at this point. Highly recommended.
