Details

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 About.com 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.

The innovative, asymmetric tongue shape of the CHICANE is designed to follow the curve of your instep. Since the height of everyone's instep is different, this unique tongue shape allows the CHICANE to adapt to even the most difficult to fit foot shapes. In addition, a smartly placed tongue gusset helps keep debris and gunk out of your shoes.

The updated CHICANE is designed to provide superior support, comfort and fit for all-day wear. Now you can focus on yourself, or others, without being distracted by foot discomfort. You will love how the CHICANE helps you get more done so, at the end of every day, you will feel new-found gratitude.

Fall in Love.

Awesome support!
I needed new walking shoes and bought these for an upcoming trip and also to work out at the gym at the hotel. I suffer from Plantar Fasciitis on my right heel. Wow, what a difference as soon as I put on my pain was gone. I am extremely vain when it comes to shoes and was crying when my doctor said no more cute ballet flats or high heels that pinch. But when you are hobbling that is not a good look either! At this rate I rather be moving and comfortable. These shoes went from the gym and now are my commute shoes on an hour long train ride-standing- until I buy more pairs.

First time ever
I have been an ICU nurse for 30 years and I have an extremely high arch and have suffered with heel pain most of my adult life. Thanks to using a lot of orthotic inserts my heel pain is pretty much gone and now suffer with forefoot pain. I have anywhere from 4-6 inserts in my shoes for work at all times. I have never had a pair of shoes that truly support my arch so I automatically put inserts in as soon as I take them out of the box. This is the first time ever I don't feel I will need to do that. I can actually feel the shoe touching my arch which has never happened. These shoes just arrived today so I'm not sure whether or not I will need a forefoot support but if I only have to use one insert for comfort I will be delighted. I'm going to test these out over the next couple of days and will probably be blowing up my credit card buying more. Also the customer service is outstanding which is very rare these days. Give Kuru a try. If you suffer from heel pain they are the best thing out there.

I got these on 8/3 and I LOVE THEM! These shoes are just what I needed as an ER case manager! I am on my feet the majority of 12 hours. These shoes are comfortable! They are made very well with thick soles and I feel this shoe is made to last. I am a Kuru fan forever! I alternate them with the Quantums. Both are perfect and better than top brand running shoes which I was buying at least every 6 months as those no longer last. You will love these! Give them a try!! I hope youvall make more WIDE shoes! Thanks Kuru for a great product!

incredible!
I have a mix of foot/shoe issues: low arches, heel pain, bunions, an injured achellies tendion, along with having had bilateral hip replacement to correct damage caused by accute osteo-arthritis. This had made me wonder if it would ever find shoes that will serve me well. I accepted to an intesive hospital based program this past summer and knew that being on my feet for the better part of every working day plus 24 hour on-calls would be my biggest physical challenge, and needing to look professional would be an issue as well. I looked on line for appropriate shoes and fell into the KURU website. Once I was able to settle on the best style and size for my mismatched over-used feet I have not looked back. The innovative style of the tongue of the Chicane style took care of the fit and from the first day I put them on I felt that I was walking on magic marshmellows. I've since purchased a second pair so that I can have one for work and one for hiking. Thank you KURU!

Thank you KURU!
I have MS and several other conditions including, but not limited to heel spurs and plantar fasciitis...needless to say I have horrible foot pain with most shoes, but need to stay active. KURU shoes allow me to do so especially with these Chicane active walking shoes. I can't stress enough how they are making a difference for me and they are very attractive, stylish shoes. What more can a girl ask for? Thank you KURU for giving me my step back.

Questions about Chicane - Women's Active Walking Shoes (Perfect for Heel Pain)

Answers

Ask a Question
    • Q:

      Do they run true to size?


    • A:

      Yes, the CHICANE runs true to size for most people. We would recommend you purchase your true size.

    Do you find this question helpful?  Yes No
    • Q:

      How are these shoes for Achiellis tendon pain? Which shoes do you recommend?


    • A:

      While none of our shoes are made to specifically target Achilles Tendon injuries, they are built on an anatomical last which helps to realign the body from the ground up which often helps relieve pain in the ankles, knees, hips, and even the back. Our HEELHUGR technology offers a deep heel cup which flexes with each step to hug the heel and offer a more stable foundation, which also contributes to a healthier Achilles tendon.

    • Q:

      I work at restaurant, are these nonslip shoes?

      At this time we do not offer any shoes that are slip-resistant, safety, or non-slip. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    • Q:

      I am a nurse I stand and walk all day. I have had severe heel pain from plantar fasciitis for 8 months. I can barely walk at end of day. Would this shoe be okay or would you recommend a different one


    • A:

      While all of our shoes offer the same support and technology inside (so it doesn't matter which shoe you choose, you will get the same comfort and support) we definitely would recommend the CHICANE as an excellent shoe. It is our best selling style of all time and offers a sturdy foundation with a thick, rubber-cupped sole and aggressive traction.
