Why Heels Hurt

Every step you take starts with your heels—and it can get painful, fast. Repeated stress on the band of tissue underneath our feet—our plantar fascia—can lead to tightness, inflammation, and micro-tears. This overuse results in the characteristic symptom of plantar fasciitis: heel pain.

Our Secret

Our secret sauce? Our patented solution to heel pain relief, KURUSOLE.

Unlike anything else, KURUSOLE’s responsive technology dynamically flexes with each step to hug and protect your heels.

The curved, heel-cupping design protects the body’s natural cushioning system—the heel pad—so your feet stay happy and healthy in the most comfortable shoes.

5 stars for pain relief! This is my go-to shoe.
