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.

Best Shoes Ever
So, I like many others who suffer from plantar fasciitis have looked and looked for a perfect shoe to help reduce or eliminate the heel pain. And I am so glad to have finally found a perfect shoe. I am a nurse and purchased the white leather Kinetic shoes for work and would definitely recommend to others! My pain in my heels went from about an 8-9 on a 0-10 pain scale to about a 1-2 now that I wear these shoes. Very pleased.

Happy Feet!
I've had PF for years but it reared it's ugly head over the last month. Like others i should own stock in orthotic inserts. I've tried name brand shoes, recommended for PF, never made it out of store. I was kind of leary ordering shoes on line but I did. So glad I did! Came home from work and ther there they were. My feet were a raging 10 in pain. Put them on and yes I noticed immediate relief , pain was at a 4. Wore then around the house that night. Wore them to work next day, taking an extra pair of shoes, never needing them. Pain was down to irritating 2. Each day is getting better. I wear a 6.5 so I ordered a 7 and they were perfect. Thank you KURU. I will be ordering another pair.

My Feet Thank You.
I have tried many different walking shoes with good arch support, orthotics, shoe inserts but my feet and legs constantly hurt all day long. I came across Kuru website and was interested in trying a pair since I have Plantar Fascitis. I was amazed how I could be on my feet for 8 hours without the achy tighteing pain. No heel pain, no leg pain. I bought a second pair in a different color, and thinking of buying a third pair, so I will be well stocked.

These are so worth it.
I work 8 hours per shift at the hospital. The difference between these shoes and other shoes I wore around, these are incredible. The first couple of days wearing the shoes my feet were still tender. But, after about three days of wearing the shoes and breaking them in I couldn't believe how much better my feet felt. When walking around, cleaning and sleeping I no longer have pain or issues. It's amazing, I don't even want to take them off. I have spent a fortune on tennis shoes with every namebrand walking shoe you can think of and these shoes are simply the best. I was scared to spend the money on these shoes. But, I'm telling you, buy them. A good nights sleep will come your way because your feet, hips, back will no longer hurt. Before, I could only walk 27 steps before having excruciating pain. Now, these are the only shoes I will wear.

I wear them around the house and never want to take them off. The traction is really good, too. Especially on wet floors or tile. So glad I bit the bullet and bought these shoes. Plus, I knew it would be easy to return or exchange them if I needed a different size or if I didn't like them. And, they look super cute, unlike many of the other shoes I tried that look like old woman shoes. The only issue I had was my pinky toe on my left foot was getting rubbed a little. But I have a wider foot and I called Kuru and they told me to loosen all the laces on the shoe and that helped solve the problem. Spend the money because it is well worth it.

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.

    • 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.
