Three Layers of Support

At KURU, we pride ourselves on our unique approach to shoe design. We believe that shoes should be shaped to fit the natural contours of your feet, which is why we create every pair in three distinct support layers, not just an insole.

Our revolutionary ergonomic design starts with a curved footbed and adds unparalleled triple-layer support that includes shock-absorbing KURUCLOUD, heel-cupping KURUSOLE, and arch-supporting ULTIMATE INSOLES. The result? Shoes that are so comfortable you’ll stop thinking about your feet.

Superior walking shoes. I have worn these shoes now for two months. I walk every morning and cannot imagine doing that if I wasn't wearing these shoes. This is my third pair of these shoes and I absolutely love the cushioned support these shoes provide."

Fabulous Running Shoes. This is my second pair of quantum wides. I love them for running. They look and feel great. I love the heal support. I’ve had a lot of foot pain and these have greatly improved my running experience. I also have a pair of atoms for casual wear. The width on those is perfect in medium, as are the sandals, but I needed a wide in the quantum’s."

Fantastic Hiking Shoes. I wore these shoes on several hikes in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and they were wonderful. The trails are rocky, have lots of tree roots, and can be steep with rock steps that hard on the knees when descending. I had no foot pain, and the shoes provided good traction. I had to lace them tightly to prevent heel slippage, but I still had plenty of room in the toebox. I broke these in at home per the instructions, and wore them all day during the trip with no discomfort. This is the most comfortable pair of hiking shoes I’ve ever had. I highly recommend these, especially if you need a wide shoe, which I recently realized I do (I got the wide version)."
