Details

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 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.

These are amazing!
I have tried so many different shoes and insoles, and I was still in extreme pain! I just found this site from searching Google. I am so very happy with my shoes! I use them for work, and I have had hardly any pain.
I am a pretty heavy girl, and I have plantar fasciitis as well as Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. So needless to say.. I know what pain is!
The shoes don't feel really spongy, or like you're walking on air, so to speak, but it feels like it has a little bit of a raised heel on the inside, which apparently is what I needed to help with my pain. I was getting up from a seated position and I couldn't walk, without extreme pain for like the first 30-40 steps. Now, I am only feeling a small amount of pain, and I have only had these for a few days now. I wear them all the time.
Honestly, they are thee best purchase I have made in a long time!! I just ordered a second pair today!

Perfect help for plantar faciaitis
Love them more every day. I'm not sure that I really needed the wide but they seem fine and lace up tightly enough. I wish I had a second pair to wear just inside my house. The support and comfort are so nice that I'd like to wear them all the time. They fit nicely right out of the box. Even so, I swear they feel better everyday as does my foot. I had read a review that claimed that these shoes helped their plantar faciaitis go away. I was simply hoping for better support and cushion. However, I am noticing less need for Motrin and am able to stand immediately upon waking. I reach for these every time I go out. I'm enjoying them more than my Danskos. And I'm ready to totally ditch my Merrills. I wish there were more styles for professional dress.

Saved my hiking trip!
I had been dealing with raging plantar fasciitis for several weeks leading up to my hiking trip. I was concerned that I needed to cancel but would have been heartbroken. Other reviewers said these shoes had saved their trip so I decided to give it a go. Yep! They were right! I put in over 20 miles of steep switchbacks over a 3-day period and enjoyed myself without paying for it the next day. I went ahead and still taped my foot for extra support, and I recommend that if your situation is kind of bad, as mine was. I should also mention that I broke all the rules and did just fine. I bought these in a last-minute panic. I almost didn't get them because I didn't have time left to break them in. They arrived 2 days before my trip. While certainly not recommended, it worked out just fine! And once I put them on I didn't want to take them off! I never switched shoes my whole trip. Another no-no! Still never had to readjust them during hiking and not a single blister. If you have trouble with plantar fasciitis and rules, this is your shoe! One thing about the wide width is that I measured my foot before I ordered. I came in at a straight-up C width. This wide shoe is almost too wide. Over time, I envision the sides of the laces bed touching each other. I will go the regular width next time. The other thing I would change about this shoe is the traditional lace. Needs the quick laces with the clip. Thank you, Kuru!!

Answers

Ask a Question
    • Q:

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


    • A:

      Meg-

      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!

      What is your return policy?


    • A:

      We understand buying over the internet can be filled with uncertainty, that’s why we offer free exchanges wherein we pay shipping both ways for exchanges (U.S. orders only.) In addition, you can return your shoes if you find that it is not the right shoe for you.

      Please remember, however, we are only able to return or exchange shoes that are in NEW condition and therefore can be resold to other customers. So, be sure to try your shoes on a clean surface to decide if you want to keep them.

    • Q:

      can I remove the insole and put in my ow custom orthotics?


    • A:

      KURU shoes can accommodate custom orthotics or insoles. 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 into our deep heel cup since the heel of our shoes is rounded like your foot. Most customers have found that the KURUSOLE™ midsole is stable and comfortable enough that they don't need to wear their custom orthotics.

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

      does your shoe offer a zero drop platform?


    • A:

      The athletic shoes, the QUANTUM and CARRERA styles, offer the smallest drop at 8cm heel-to-toe drop.

      All our other shoes offer 12cm heel-to-toe drop. We do not currently have a neutral shoe or a zero drop shoe.

    • Q:

      Is the shoe true to size?


    • A:

      Yes, the CHICANE Wide is true to size.
