The KURUSOLE™ Allegro performance chassis includes a visible HEELKRADL™ heel cup designed to work with nature. It dynamically flexes inward to cup the fat pad of your heels for maximum comfort. If you want the ideal fitness shoe for your morning walks, running to the gym, or globetrotting, the KINETIC delivers.

But we did not stop there, the KINETIC also includes an "inspired by nature" fit with an anatomically shaped forefoot to allow your toes to spread throughout the day and an 8mm heel to forefoot drop. The rockered outsole is optimized to promise the smoothest ride you will ever find in a fitness walking shoe.

Naturally Happier.

Thank goodness for KURU
I have tried so many brands...NB, Dansko, Vionic orthotics, NIKE Shox, Spring Step, Nurse Mates and even kinesiology tape on my heels, feet always hurt. As a nurse, I knew it must be PF so I googled shoes for PF and found this website. Read the reviews and I eagerly purchased. The best $$$ I have spent. I work in an busy ER standing/ walking during 12 shifts, I finally have happy feet. I didn't dread having to stand and walk. These shoes are so worth the money. No more Motrin for me at the end of my shift. Planning on purchasing in black. Try it!!! They are well made and in my opinion, true to size. I needed no break end period. They arrived promptly and very stylish. LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes.

The only thing that has helped my plantar fasciitis!!
I LOVE these shoes! They are truly a God-send! I had gotten to a point of desperation when my feet were hurting so bad I literally could not walk, and being a nurse I work 12-hour shifts! I was in tears from the pain. I searched online for "shoes that help plantar fasciitis" and Kuru came up. I read about it and decided to give these shoes a try at first. I had been receiving injections about every couple weeks and my podiatrist was recommending surgery but these shoes SAVED ME! I was just online ordering a couple more pairs! I HIGHLY recommend them!! Thank you Kuru!!

my feet feel great in these shoes!
I'm amazed how much better my feet feel since wearing these shoes. As soon as I wore them it felt like the plantar fascitis pain was almost gone. I wish I'd found these shoes before I was in pain while walking for the past year.

Love the fit
First time in years I have been able to walk a mile without heel, knee and hip pain. Glad I followed the Kuru Guru's advice and went up 1/2 size. I love the structure and stability the shoe provides without being stiff. Did not need the three recommended week break in period. Took a few hours a day for about four days and then started wearing all day. Never thought I would enjoy buying shoes online but so far these are the most comfortable shoes I have had in a long time. Saving up for another pair in a different style.

I had tried everything else
I want to thank you so much for your shoes. For the past three years I have had trouble, achilles tendonitis, heel spurs, and to date your shoes are the only ones I can were w/o pain..it actually relieves the pain. I am so forever greatful; I am hoping that one day you will make a dress-up" shoe as tennis shoes are not actually appropriate for church, etc. Believe me, I put on my Kuru's the minute I get home. So glad I found your sight on internet because I had tried everything else, but to no avail. You have no idea what a relief it has been. Again, thank you!

Answers

    • Q:

      which shoe would be the best for standing on concrete for long periods of time. and what is the difference between the kinetic and the mesh shoes. how much do the kinetic weigh and the mesh. could you please answer my questions before I order. Thank You


    • A:

      Since allour shoes offer the same KuruSole technology, they all offer great support and comfort for standing on concrete. Due to its advanced design and use of lightweight materials, the KINETIC is approximately 30% lighter than some of our other shoes and weighs approximately 10 ounces (women's size 8). The mesh on the KINETIC is much like the mesh on our other styles. It's like running shoe mesh, which makes it breathable and more comfortable in warmer weather.

      We have customers with both styles and they love them both. So, it really comes down to how you plan on wearing the shoes, style and color preferences.

      Lastly, for those planning on standing in the shoes for hours on end, we do recommend giving time to allow your feet to adapt to the support and for the technology and shoe to custom mold to your foot. It can take up to a couple weeks of wearing them a couple hours per day before they've fully adapted. They do get even more comfortable once fully molded to your feet.

    • Q:

      Hi,

      I am a runner looking for an everyday sneaker/dog walking shoe.
      I have high arches, but was diagnosed with PF a few months back...I am recovering, but want a shoe that will really feel good to wear!

      Would you recommend the Kinetics or Chicanes, based off:
      -I have high arches
      -I am light in body weight (don't like heavy shoes)
      -I have a somewhat narrow foot
      -I am always on my feet! I need shoes that are durable.

      Thank you!


    • A:

      Based on your description, I think both styles would help with your plantar fasciitis, since they both have the same footbed technology and support. However, the Kinetic may be more to your liking given that it is a much lighter shoe than the Chicane. In addition, it has a more athletic/performance fit last, which should fit your narrower feet a little better. Given that you have higher arches, definitely completely loosen the laces all the way down the tongue of the shoe to make sure you can get the best fit.

      Lastly, we recommend breaking in the shoes for a few hours a day for the first couple weeks. Especially if you will be on your feet all day. This allows time for your feet to adapt to the support and for the shoes to mold to your feet.

      Hope this helps and good luck with your recovery. Hopefully our shoes can help get you running again!

    • Q:

      I need a wide width. Can I get any of the styles in a wide?


    • A:

      Currently, all our shoes are only available in a medium width. However, some of our customers who normally buy wide shoes tell us that the Kruzr II style fits wider feet. If you choose to try the Kruzr II, we would recommend completely loosening the laces to see if it will fit your wider foot.

    • Q:

      I was told by the doctor to get a neutral running or walking shoe. I have custom orthodics and have been using them for over a year. They don't seem to be working very well anymore. Would I need to put them in these shoes or wear them as is? I was looking at your kinetic walking shoe. What would you suggest?


    • A:

      Colleen, the KINETIC shoe is a neutral walking shoe that may be perfect for your needs. Most of our customers who wear custom orthotics tell us that with their KURU shoes, they don't need to wear Orthotics. Our shoes give enough support out of the box!

      I would recommend buying a pair of KURU Kinetic or the new Quantum style for your needs. Buy the size assuming you won't need your custom orthotics since both will give you excellent support that will probably rival that of your custom orthotics.

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

      I have custom insoles. Does the liner come out so I can add mine?


    • A:

      Yes, you can remove the insoles and add your custom insoles as long as your custom insoles have a more rounded shape on the bottom. However, we normally recommend trying our shoes without your insoles first to see if they provide enough support. Many customers with custom insoles report that, when wearing KURU, our shoes provide enough support and stability that they do not need to add theirs.
