Shoe Care Tips
Follow these simple tips to keep your blue shoes looking their best for years to come.
- Protect your light blue shoes and dark blue shoes from dust, dirt, and water with a preventive spritz of KURU Shield, our proprietary blend of shoe protector spray. This water-repellent layer works on all shoe materials and helps safeguard your footwear from the elements.
- Blue and white shoes get their fair share of water and dirt stains. Refresh an extra-loved pair of blue footwear with our KURU Shoe Cleaning Kit. Equipped with an all-material shoe cleaner, cleaning brush and microfiber cloth, this kit helps your shoes last.
- Allow your shoes to dry out between uses, away from sunlight. Sweat and sunlight can each prematurely break down materials. To help them last longer and stay fresh, give your pair of shoes some breathing room in the shade between uses.
- Wear a pair of moisture-wicking socks with your shoes. Socks provide a barrier against sweat and bacteria and help keep your feet dry. Reducing the build up of bacteria can help extend the life of your white, brown, black and blue shoes and reduce the risk of odor over time.
The Color Psychology of Blue
Learn more about the meanings behind the colors we wear and how we can craft the perfect color palette to accomplish our goals.
The color blue is known for its ability to communicate a calm confidence, trust, and reliability. With this color psychology in mind, the color blue can be smart to wear when entering conflict or a stressful situation. In fact, blue light has even been shown to decrease blood pressure.
The shade of blue may have an impact on its general vibe as well. A darker blue might be associated with a more formal, luxurious feel while light blue might give off a more calm, refreshing vibe.
That said, blue can sometimes be associated with sadness or melancholy, so having a healthy balance of this color may be a smart choice.
As you select your next pair of blue shoes, consider the general look and feel you’re going for. This may help you narrow down your choices as you make a decision.
What should I wear with blue shoes?
With blue, you’ve got options! When wearing a bright blue athletic shoe, you might choose to wear equally bright colors to match or opt for a monochrome outfit to really help them stand out.
Navy blue shoes work well with business casual outfits or more formal events, while light blue or royal blue flats can be lovely accents to skirts or dresses.
Can I use custom orthotics with with KURU shoes?
Due to the anatomical shape of the KURUSOLE, custom orthotics with a rounded heel fit best inside our shoes. If the underside of the custom orthotic (the part that sits on the footbed) is squared off, then it may not fit into our deep heel cup—which is rounded like your foot.
How is the arch support of KURU shoes?
KURU shoes deliver excellent arch support without the need for thick inserts or expensive, custom orthotics.
Superior arch support starts with our patented KURUSOLE technology, which delivers natural cushioning and dynamically hugs your heel with every step. Every foot is unique, and our ULTIMATE INSOLES adapt to fit your needs by using your own body heat to custom-mold to the shape of your feet over time.
The corrective nature of our superior arch support is designed to neutralize your weight distribution and place your foot in the best anatomical position. This support can take some getting used to. We suggest slowly breaking in your new shoes over the course of 2–3 weeks.
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.
How do I know which shoe to buy? Which is best for me?
The best shoe for you will depend on your unique foot type and the style you’re looking for.
The best shoes for men and women alike offer adequate arch support and cushion. Whether you’re looking for bright blue shoes, dark blue shoes, or white shoes with blue accents, KURUs line of pain-relieving footwear help alleviate foot pain symptoms for all-day comfort.

Very comfortable boots. These are cute and comfy low boots. I purchased the tan with blue accents. These boots go with so many things. They are my go to boots now!”
2 people loved them as gifts. I had bought a blue pair for my son back in August for school because he has flat feet and is always complaining about the pain. These have helped him a lot. I just bought a black pair for my brother who has arch problems and no complaints so far.”
I love them. These trail shoes are so comfortable. They run a little small and I had to exchange for a half size larger. I do have foot problems and I bought them for an upcoming vacation where we will be hiking a lot. My husband wanted to cancel the trip but after purchasing these shoes I feel I can walk pain free. Woohoo. The blues stripes are very cute and shiny.”
