Follow our list to help you get the most out of our already best shoes.


One of the best aspects of KURU Footwear is the completely individual fit that you get with the KURUSOLE™ technology that is built into each of our shoes. The high-tech foams that we use to make our insoles are biomechanically shaped. That means that as you use them they mold to your foot, using your foot’s own body heat. With the custom-shaped support, you get premium shock absorption and reliable arch support. Here are some positive reviews that we’ve gotten from some of our happy customers:

These shoes are fabulous! Made it through a very busy day of running around and standing on hard cement floors with out any foot pain. This is a novel experience for me as vet nursing is hard on the body and feet. The shoes have just enough bounce in the soles and comfortable insoles to keep my feet happy.

You can literally put KURU to work for you with all of our business casual styles to match your wardrobe.

A good way to match your KURU shoes with a business casual outfit is to find a pop of color that you can accent with. This gives your whole outfit a personal touch and can bring the whole ensemble together.

Our athletic shoes are available in neutral toes as well as fun, colorful options to express your personality from the track to the yoga mat.

Need hiking shoes? We have options for the trail, too. And the office. And on the beach.

There’s absolutely something for everyone.

Proper Shoe Fit: KURU Has You Covered

My 2nd pair. When I purchased my first pair I was looking for some relief in my heel pain. I tried everything and let me tell you, these are the best shoes ever. My heel pain is GONE!. My 2nd pair arrived just in time to break them in before our Disney trip. Thank you Kuru for taking care of my feet.

Great work shoe! I had a pair that a friend gave me and I wore them to work every day for over 2 years before I bought these ones. I am looking forward to another 2+ years with these! Thanks to KURU, my feet will never hurt after work again!

The versatility of KURU’s shoes does not stop at the different styles that we offer. The shoes we sell also have work in a wide range of uses. From a shoe that you can wear on your feet all day at a construction job, to a fitness sneaker that you can wear during your next workout, KURU has something for you. The orthotic-grade midsole will float you through the day with our space-age foam and make you feel like you are gliding through the day on a cloud!

Love them! This is the second pair of Atom shoes I buy! I found out about Kuru when I was searching for shoes that help with overpronation. I bought my first pair along with some New Balance shoes. I loved the Kuru shoes so much, I bought a second pair. They are so comfortable and help with my walking. I will buy again, and again.

Review Veronica De L. (Posted on 12/31/22)

Saved my feet! I can’t find words to describe how great these shoes are! After months of trying to treat my plantar fasciitis and heel spurs, I ordered a pair. In a couple of days, they remedied what many inserts, ice, stretching exercises, anti-inflammatories, and painful cortisone injections couldn’t do! I am truly thankful, and I doubt I will ever shop for shoes anywhere else!

KURU Goes Above and Beyond

Whatever your individual style is, you can find something that will work with you and give you all the support you need. And with the amazing KURU customer service to back you up, you can feel good about getting just what you want out of your order-even if that means changing things around a bit. At KURU we are not afraid to work for you, and neither are our shoes!

Don’t forget our solid return policy. We understand buying over the internet can be filled with uncertainty, that’s why we offer free exchanges wherein we pay to ship both ways for returns and exchanges.

As long as you process the exchange or return within 45 days of the purchase, we accept them back for a full refund, different size, or even a different style. We appreciate you doing your best to keep them in like-new condition, but we do understand that the break-in period and trial can show some minor wear.

My mistake but great customer service. I’ve always been shy to purchase shoes on line because it’s hard to make sure that you have the correct size. This time, I mistakenly ordered the wrong sized shoe. Once I made this mistake known to the Kuru Gurus, sprang into action to facilitate the return and send out the correct shoe. It’s nice to see a company with this amount of integrity.

Satisfied customer. Speedy service. The fit and finish of the sneakers was excellent. It has great support and has helped with my plantar fascitis. I would recommend them to anyone with heel and arch problem. Size was spot on 12. Will be trying other styles soon!

Review by Brian W. (Posted on 12/7/22)

Excellent customer service. I love my Chicanes! They fit perfectly. What I also love is that when I discovered I had ordered the wrong size, the return process was efficient and easy. I am still breaking these in and I am looking forward to taking them out on the trail over the holiday weekend.
