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.

Im in LOVE!
I absolutely love these shoes. They were a true 8.5 fit and not too narrow, just perfect. My pain is gone and my feet are happy. They have a very stylish and unique look too. I have worn them out and am tempted to buy the exact same pair again but what if there are others I can equally love?

************************
KURU RESPONSE

Aly, all of our shoes have the same proven KURUSOLE™ technology. That means if you love the CHICANE, there's a good chance you'll love a lot of our other styles. Just remember that the space-age foam we use in our ULTIMATE INSOLES™ takes time to mold to your feet. So, when you get your next pair, give the shoes some time to custom mold to your feet and, as they do, they will become just as comfortable as your CHICANE shoes.

Better than expected
The shoes are perfect for me. I have Planters Faciitis and these were comfortable out of the box. If I know I'll wear them for a long period of time, I switch out the insole for my custom orthodics and they're great. They are roomy in the toe box but that's what I need. Even more stylish than I expected them to look. On top of that, I had a delivery problem at my house but Customer Service was wonderful and sorted it all out and got my shoes to me. I'll will buy from here again.

Comfortable but snug toes
I found these online by clicking on an ad. Glad to know that there are alternatives. Had peroneal tendon surgery with general anesthesia. Whatever position my foot was held in resulted in plantar fasciitis (fasciosis). (My heel was full of blood under the skin and it felt like a knife sliced me along the side from it; sugery was on the other side of the ankle.) Repeately rolled the ice bottle, stretched, got massaged, saw a podiatrist and bought $40 orthotics, took steroids..(.besides initially stretching my foot before getting out of bed). The two things that have worked best--and worked in minutes--have been getting chiropractic on my foot (YES!) and getting these shoes. Ahh! The only thing I would advise others is that they are leather, and with the toe box being VERTICALLY snugger than I'd like, it makes my toes feel a little like they're smothering. So I will wear these in the cold months, and I will use a credited amount that Customer Service gave me to put toward another shoe they recommend in a mesh, Carrera or Quantum.

loved this shoe...couldvhavebheldbup a tiny bit better
I loved the look of this shoe, but the proof was in the wearing. Bought these for a trip to Yellowstone, and they did not disappoint. The only complaint was that after wearing them almost continuously for about 5 months, the leather on the instep ripped on both shoes. Honestly, if it hadn't been for that, these shoes would still look great! Not complaining tho....ordered two more pair less than a year later. No more pain.

No More Pain!
Between a cleaning business and my children, I am always on my feet. These shoes the first week took a little breaking in. I noticed right away no more heel or other foot pain. My feet do get tired but not painful. Thank you thank you thank you!

Questions about Chicane - Women's Active Walking Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis

Answers

Ask a Question
    • Q:

      I have custom orthotics. They are half size, meaning they don't continue into the ball of the foot. Would this shoe work with my orthotics? What is your return policy?


    • A:

      KURU shoes do accommodate custom orthotics. The KuruSole midsole technology does an excellent job accommodating custom orthotics, giving you a very solid, stable foundation. Due to the anatomical shape of the KuruSole heel cup, custom orthotics with a rounded heel fit best into the shoe. If the custom orthotic is squared off on the underside, then it may not fit very well in our shoes. (Imagine stacking two orthotics on top of each other) Additionally, many customers have found that KURU shoes offer enough support such that they don't need to wear their custom orthotics when wearing KURUs.

      Our return policy allows you to return shoes that can be sold as new. To read more, click the "Return Policy" link in the footer of our website.

    • Q:

      How is the width of the Chicane? I like a wide toe box. Would it help to order a half size up to give more toe room?


    • A:

      The Chicane is built on a medium width last. However, we do use an anatomical last which means the toe box is a little broader to allow for more space and spreading out of your toes. We would recommend starting out true to size. Once you get the shoes, if you decide you want more space, you can process a FREE exchange request (we pay shipping on exchanges).

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

      Will i be able to wear these shoes comfortably to walk in. I do not run, but love to do 1/2 to 1 hour walks, thanks so much.


    • A:

      The Chicane is perfect as a walking shoe. In fact, it's probably our best-selling style for that application. If you want great breathability, definitely consider our high-performance mesh version, which is ideal for warmer temperatures.

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

      I need a shoe for running. Can I run in the Chicane or should I try another one?


    • A:

      The Chicane is not designed specifically for running. It's designed primarily for trail, walking and casual use. Many of our customers wear the shoes for walking, and some even run in them. But, it wasn't created with running in mind.

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

      Is the Chicane waterproof?


    • A:

      The Chicane is not waterproof. If you need improved water or stain resistance, we recommend treating them with a high-grade spray protector designed to improve water resistance.
