Black Shoes: Your Guide to Finding the Ideal Match

A color that works for all occasions and seasons—black shoes are a must-have in any collection.

If you’re a lover of all-black shoes, you’ve come to the right place. Shoes with a neutral color—especially black—can go with anything, so they can be used to complete a look or to offset an outfit that’s too vibrant.

With black shoes, you can easily mix and match them with anything in your closet, or you can wear an ensemble with similar tones. At KURU Footwear, we offer all-black shoes for all kinds of occasions.

Elevate Your Style with Versatile Shades and Styles

While some people might call them basic, black shoes provide class and subtlety, which makes them the perfect partner for a business casual look. Because black goes with everything, you can pull off any kind of outfit, whether it has a warm or cool theme. This elegant color can come in a wide range of styles, such as pumps, sneakers, flip flops, and more, making it a tried and tested staple in our wardrobes.

But no matter what color your shoe is, you need to ensure that it will provide support and cushion, will fit you comfortably, and will serve the purpose it’s intended for. Getting the right kind of black shoe will keep your feet healthy, happy, and safe from injuries, no matter what style of shoe you’re after. Luckily, KURU Footwear has a great selection of black shoes for you to choose from!

Shoe Care Tips

Follow these simple tips to keep your black shoes looking their best for years to come.

To provide your black shoes with the best care possible, be to do the following:

  1. Use a preventive spritz of shoe protector spray, like our kuru shield, to protect your black shoes from wet conditions or spills.
  2. Use a horsehair brush to eliminate debris and dirt after use.
  3. Wear socks with your shoes to help keep bacteria and odor at bay.
  4. Use a shoe horn to protect your shoe when you slip into them.
  5. Use a shoe tree to help preserve its shape and extend your shoe’s lifespan.

The Color Psychology of Black

Learn more about the meanings behind the colors we wear and how we can craft the perfect color palette to accomplish our goals.

For some people, the color black can evoke elegance and Sophistication. This is why so many choose to wear black whenever attending stylish events such as black-tie or formal occasions. Many luxurious brands also opt for this color when designing their logos.

That said, the color black can also be associated with sadness or mourning, so it’s smart to be mindful of this depending on the setting. The color black remains one of the most classic, quintessential colors we can have in our wardrobes, so a black shoe is a perfect staple to keep in your closet.


  • What should I wear with black shoes?

    Black shoes are a great staple in our wardrobes that can be worn every day. Black sandals, black sneakers, and black heels are things that we usually see out in the streets. That said, we shouldn’t just put on random pieces of clothing together whenever we want to use black shoes.

    Here are a few outfits perfect for black shoes:

    – Chinos: A white shirt paired with Derby or Oxford shoes can give you a smarter look if you want to wear chinos and can be perfect for nights out.

    – Jeans: Darker colors will have more class compared to lighter colored jeans. You can then pair this with a black or navy jumper to complete the look.

    – Tailored shorts: This is the only exception to the “no-shorts rule” as you can pair them with black brogues or Oxford shoes.

  • Do black shoes go with khaki pants?

    They absolutely can! Khaki pants will match well with black shoes, as well as black and white shoes, offering a business casual look. Darker khaki might work best to avoid the stark contrast between black shoes and light khaki.

  • Can you wear black shoes with a blue suit?

    Black shoes and a blue suit can complement each other, as long as you’re wearing a darker or bolder shade of blue. A navy suit with black shiny shoes makes for an extra classy look.

  • I just received a pair of your shoes and my feet are sore/hurt after wearing them. Why is that?

    Some customers experience tenderness when they first start wearing a new pair of KURUs. That’s ok! Your body may need time to adjust to the new levels of anatomical support you experience with our patented KURUSOLE technology. Our shoes are also designed to mold to your unique foot shape, which takes a bit of a break-in period.

    To help mitigate this, we suggest you follow our break-in procedure, including wearing your KURUs for a couple hours per day around the house in the first couple of weeks as they break in and form to your foot.

Key Considerations Before Making Your Purchase

Wondering if black shoes are the right addition to your wardrobe? Here’s what you need to think about before making a purchase.

  • Purpose
    Consider the purpose of the shoes you need, whether it’s for work, formal events, casual wear, or sports. This will help you narrow down the type of black shoes that would be most suitable for your needs.
  • Material
    The material of the shoes can affect their comfort, durability, and appearance. Leather is a popular and classic option for black shoes, but there are also synthetic materials that can be more affordable or more suitable for certain activities.
  • Style
    Black shoes come in various styles, such as oxfords, loafers, sneakers, boots, and sandals. Consider which style would best suit your needs, as well as your personal taste and the occasion you’ll be wearing them for.
  • Fit
    Proper fit is crucial for both comfort and support. Try on black shoes in the size you usually wear, and walk around to see if they feel comfortable and supportive. If you have any foot issues, such as high arches or wide feet, look for shoes that cater to your specific needs.

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.

    Next, our patented KURUSOLE mid-layer gently wraps around the heels and extends to the arch of the foot. It dynamically flexes with every step to protect your heel. This technology can help redirect stress and encourage a healthy gait.

On Pair #4 Now! This is now my 4th pair of Kurus! I bought a pair of the black Roams about 7 months ago and love them so much that I decided to add this white pair to my KURU Kollection! I’ll be back for my 5th pair soon!”


Super supportive and cute! This shoes are so supportive and comfortable! I love the design of all black and light touch of pink and pink speckles, normally I don’t like pink but this is very soft. Would highly recommend, 3rd pair of kurus since last fall. Can’t hardly wear any other brands now that I’ve worn this brand.”
