The award-winning CHICANE now available in a WIDE width. 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 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.

Customer Reviews

Arch Support
very comfortable
I have worn "special" sandals for years, due to high arches, but was never able to find a walking shoe that had great support or comfort. After searching and reading many reviews of shoes designed for arch support, I decided to take a chance and order Chicanes from Kuru. I was not familiar with Kuru, but with free shipping and free returns I figured it was worth taking a chance. So glad I did! The Chicane supports the arches and has a comfortable feel when walking. The wide has plenty of toe room, even for my extra wide feet. I felt my regular size was a bit short, so I reordered a size up and they are perfect. I highly recommend this shoe.

The best show for plantar fasciitis!
I am a nurse that is literally on my feet 12-14 hours a shift on one of the busiest Med-Surg floors known to man. If this "Monster" ( Plantar Fasciitis ) has ever entered your feet you have had no doubt what it is, with the stabbing of the knives to your feet and the heel pain from the heel Spurs and Oh my Heavens that first step out if bed!!! OUCH! @$"?! I have fought this Satan sent condition for 10 years. I have had the most extreme case in both feet, due to a three quarter leg discrepancy and my line of work. I have spent boo qudols of money on store bought orthotics, custom made orthotics, night splints, and mega bucks on shoes and boots try to find something that works. I knew I had the answer as soon as I tried in these shoes on. I wore them about four hours for two days and the major work. I am extremely satisfied with these shoes and will be buying more in the future. If you have plantar fasciitis you have to try these shoes. They are a life changing product. Thank You Kuru.

Arch Support
First time
I just received my shoes yesterday.i have a heel spur and have not been able to walk without pain for sometime now. I had worked all day on concrete floors and my feet were kiling me to the point I was using my crutches. When I received my shoes I tried them on and even after being on my feet all day once I put the shoes on my feet it was like heaven. There was almost no pain at all. I'm going to try the shoes today at work I have my backup plan and bringing crutches but I will let ya know how they work out.

Sooo comfortable!
I've never reviewed anything before but these shoes are so comfortable I had to start! I don't have PF but I have suffered from chemo induced neuropathy for years. I have little sensation in my feet but also tons of pain - until I put these shoes on! I wore them to work the second day I had them and even after spending hours on my feet I was still as comfy as I was in the morning! I'm sure I would be ordering another pain soon!

Great for work.
These were my first pair of Kuru shoes. These shoes saved my feet when walking at work. The size was accurate and the support was phenomenal. I am going to buy Kuru shoes for my husband soon.

Ask a Question
    • Q:

      How wide is a "Wide C+" I wear a Women's 10.5 2E.

    • A:


      Thank you so much for reaching out to us about the width of our shoes. We use the Bannock measuring device which is standard when it comes to our sizes. 2 E will be wider than a C+. If you get your foot measured by a Bannock measuring device it will give you a better idea if the C+ would work for you. Our Men's Wide is a E+. I hope this helps!
