Customer Reviews

Arch Support
Good For Travel
I got the EE width and I just love these hiking shoes for travel because they are very lightweight and packs easily so I don't go over the 50 lbs for checked bags. After work I do some urban hiking to explore the area and get some exercise. The heel support is unique and the overall feel of the shoe is comfortable but also sturdy.

Excellent Light Hiker
Previously used Merrel brand, but their quality was suffering.
Thought to try Kuru for plantar fasciitis. EXCELLENT!
Very happy regarding the mid-sole support! Great for feet and good grip outdoor light trails.
Looking for less casual shoe in wide, but not available yet.

Arch Support
I have minor plantar fasciitis and I didn't want to wait until it got to the point of excruciating pain before doing something about it to help relieve the pain. So, after a couple other shoe purchases where I was told they would help, but didn't, I finally came across these. I bought a pair to wear at work where I am on my feet for 10-11 hours every day. Now, when I get home, my feet are not in terrible pain as they were before!! Thank you so much, and I am hoping you come out with more styles in the wide width so I can continue to dress in style on my feet.

Arch Support
These shoes are awesome! I have issues with plantar fasciitis and after spending the day in my woodshop I could hardly walk at the end of the day... I had purchased a pair of those shoes with the heavy duty spring in the heel, and they gave some relief, they also seemed to make my back hurt. I understand it is recommended to break these in, but I decided to go for broke. I wore them to work for a day, and then all day today in the woodshop. After 7 hours of being on my feet constantly in the shop, came back inside my feet feel absolutely great. In fact, I just placed an order for a second that I can dedicate to work, so I am not getting them all dirty. Definitely worth the $$$. Thanks!

Arch Support
Exceptional Comfort and healing of my plantar fasciitis on both feet
I have plantar facitis and high arches on both feet and tried Kuru shoes a a last resort to fix them so I don't have to get surgery done. I have had plantar fasciitis for about a year and two tests in the hospital before trying Kuru. I also have had 2 cortisone injections on my left foot and can't get my heals healed with my New Balance. My feet are close to being healed in just two weeks of wearing Kuru, probably fully healed in two more. The heel cushioning in Kuru allows my inner heel relief from the pressure I have on my orthotics in my NB. I am so pleased with the results of the Kuru shoes, it warranted an exceptional review from me and will be getting another pair.

    • Q:

      I wear 8.5 to 9 EE.
      I am also a bowlegged high arched under pronator.

      Is this the shoe for me?

    • A:

      Greg, the wide options are E+ width, and fit up to 2E. So, width wise, yes, you should find them comfortable.

      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.
