Customer Reviews

Arch Support
The fit, the comfort!
Let me start by saying that I rarely review products, however these shoes have changed that! I could barely walk with my severe Plantar Fasciitis. Literally thought of getting a walking cane. I wore these shoes the first day with reserved enthusiasm, just 3 hours as recommended. They were different in a good way. I thought hmm? I started day two and decided that I was going wear them the entire day as my foot couldn't get any worse and forego the breakin period. I wore the 12 hours on dat two, wow... My pain went to half of what it was. My coworkers even commented on how much better I looked. Thank you Kuru. Mores to come as the days go on!

Great job Kuru! Grateful over here in NM.
I ordered a pair of your shoes for my husband who has wide feet- and it's just impossible to find high quality shoes that are wide AND can be worn to work.

It's been two weeks. He's been faithfully breaking them in because he has a trip to Europe in two more and wants to only take one pair of shoes.

Ha! He put on his other sneakers yesterday and immediately was uncomfortable. Said it must be that the alignment has taken place and he loves it.

Great job Kuru! Grateful over here in NM.

Arch Support
Better than previous shoe
I do a lot of walking on concrete. At least 10 hours a day. They seem to be a little better on my heels then my regular work shoes. But not as good as I would expect. I wish they would make the Heels more padded for my hurting heels. By the 6 hour of working my heels are killing me


Clay, thank you very much for your response and I'm glad that your CHICANE is at least somewhat better than your regular shoes. I just wanted to mention that in the way of heel padding, the QUANTUM and CARRERA shoes offer a little more padding than the CHICANE or our other styles in the heel because they utilize EVA foams (memory foams) in the footbed. One of these styles might be a better choice for you in the future. Thanks for your review! We appreciate it.

Arch Support
best shoe I have ever worn
I stumbled across Kuru while doing an internet search for shoes that help with those that suffer from plantar. I have had a lot of foot pain over the last 2-3 years as I have had to wear composite shoes for my work. I walk on concrete and walk an average of 10 miles a day. When I found out my work was supplying us steel toe covers as an option to steel toed/composite shoes I was very excited because it opened the door for me to get a new pair of shoes that were actually comfortable. My new Chicane's are great. They are so comfortable and I do not have the pain in my feet after I get off work from wearing. They are by far the most comfortable pair of shoes I have worn, and they are nice looking. I ordered mine in a wide, but would advise new customers to order up one half or full size. Thank you KURU! I will definitely be ordering more shoes in the near future.
