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.

No Pain, All Gain
I've suffered from PF for 20 years, off and on, depending on how good I am an wearing the right kind of shoes. I survived for years on the "D" brand as a mom to a young child and they worked great until they discontinued my favorite flat sole design (not the clogs). I tried many other brands, but they never lasted or solved the pain on a long-term basis. A desperate web search for PF friendly shows brought me to Kuru and my first pair of Chicane in Riveter Black. Wow.

Despite the fact that one of the shoe laces was twice as long as the other (!?), the shoe has completely changed my life! They are somewhat stylish with a deceptively slim profile. The comfort of these shoes blew me away. The laces tighten perfectly along the top of the shoe so they are snug without suffocating the foot and the toes have a generous toe box for a good wiggle when needed. I have worn them for 8 hours, walking 10-12k steps, and my feet have never felt better. The only time I had pain was when I wore socks with a more open weave and they wore into my soles but that's my bad, not the shoes. My musculature was still pain-free from the support.

And the best part: Absolutely NO pain in my heals or arches. I no longer walk like a 95-year-old granny at night and in the morning, and the nail-in-the-heel feeling is gone 24/7. Thank you, Kuru, for a life-saving shoe. Between Kuru and Pokémon Go, I'm walking miles more than I ever have before.

Awesome shoe. I can't wait to get another pair
I bought these shoes about 4 weeks ago. I work retail 8 hours/day and get one 30 minute break. My feet were so sore I was close to tears by the end of the day but since wearing them, my feet pain has lessened from 100% down to 10%!! I am so happy with these shoes I plan to get a second pair after the holidays and throw all my tennis shoes in the trash. Another benefit that I have to tell everyone about, about 2 weeks ago while I was at work we got a winter storm and by the time I got off duty there was 24" of snow on the ground and my car was buried so after digging my car out and helping co-workers I was soaked all except for my feet!! I was wearing these shoes and my feet were perfectly dry and warm. These are amazing shoes and well worth the money.

Best shoe, thus far
I am in the medical field and I stand, walk and drive for many hours, daily. I have flat feet and I have terrible arthritic pain from recent breast cancer treatments that have caused loss of bone density. I was AMAZED at the difference these shoes made from day one of wearing. I want more! I hope to be able to purchase a variety of KURU shoes in the near future!

Angel feet
I'm so very happy to have gotten these life changing shoes . My feet were a mess ,that I had to take time off of work . Walking 3to4 miles a day on concrete floors over the period of 18years have just done my feet in. I order these shoes hoping they would arrive before I went back to work that Monday but they weren't there before I had to leave for work . I was at work and my sister call me and said my shoes have come and she was going to bring them to me. My feet were killing me just being at work for the first hour. Long story short I put these shoes on and 80% of my pain was gone that quick.... believe me if your in any kind of foot pain you'll try anything to fix it what ever it cost!

Kuru are Awesome!!
These are my first pair of Kuru Chicane walking shoes. These shoes are perfect for walking on concrete. My feet would hurt after walking 4 miles in my other shoes. But with Kuru I now have NO pain in my feet. I am currently purchasing my second pair of Kuru Quest Boots . Can't wait until I get them

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.

      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.
