Elevate Your Style with Versatile Shades and Styles

Purple shoes have become increasingly popular in recent years as people look to add more color and personality to their wardrobes. Purple is a versatile color that comes in different shades, from lavender to deep plum, making it easy to find a pair that complements your outfit. Purple shoes are available in different styles, including sneakers, flats, and heels, making them suitable for various occasions.

One of the benefits of purple shoes is that they can add a pop of color and interest to any outfit. They can be worn with neutral colors, such as black or white, or paired with other bold colors for a more daring look. Purple shoes can also be used to create a monochromatic outfit by pairing them with different shades of purple.

Purple shoes can also be a great conversation starter and a way to show off your personal style. They can be worn to make a statement or to add a touch of whimsy to an outfit. Purple shoes can be a fun way to experiment with color and express your individuality.

Wondering how to style your purple shoes? Our KURU GURUs outline the best ways to wear them below.

  • Go Matchy-Matchy
    Purple shoes go well with almost any color. For instance, you can go matchy-matchy by wearing a purple dress with purple boots or a purple blouse with purple sandals. If you prefer something extra bold, carry a purple purse too! If you want a nice little pop to your outfit, wear another brightly colored purse. Neutral bags look great too.

  • Wear with Denim
    You can pair your purple shoes with wide-leg jeans, skinny jeans, or ripped jeans for a casual everyday look. Light wash denim is perfect for a subtler style, while darker wash jeans can make your purple shoes pop.

  • Wear with Black
    If you want something chic and sophisticated, pair your light purple boots or sandals with a black dress, black jeans, or black pantsuit.Men can also sport several outfits with purple shoes. For example, you can look effortlessly sharp and cool by wearing a tan camouflage shirt jacket, black shorts, a stylish pair of low-top purple shoes, and some shades.

Shoe Care Tips

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

Regardless of whether you’re wearing purple and white shoes, purple and gold shoes, or black and purple shoes, these shoes are a reflection of your character. Thus, you’ll want to take care of them like how you take care of yourself. Here are some practical ways to help maintain the beauty and quality of your purple shoes:

  1. Wash your shoes manually. Although several washing machines have specific features for washing shoes, it’s better to do it on your own for better control. Remove the laces and the insoles, and then wash the shoes carefully. You may also disinfect the inside with alcohol.
  2. Use premium wooden shoe trees to keep your shoe’s original shape and absorb perspiration from the shoes.
  3. Rotate your shoes because, like you, they need rest to stay fresh and strong. Doing this will also help extend their lifespan.
  4. Clean your shoes regularly. Of course, the way of cleaning varies according to the material used. For instance, you can polish leather shoes and apply a leather lotion using a soft cloth. If you have suede purple shoes, you can brush them with suede brushes or a clean toothbrush. Rejuvenating their color is also possible with a suede conditioner.
  5. Make sure your shoes don’t get extremely wet. If this happens, let them dry naturally on the shoe tree. Lay them on their sides and not on their soles. Avoid direct sunlight, too, because it can lead to dry-rotting and crumbling.

The Color Psychology Of Purple

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

Apart from wearing classy and trendy purple sandals, purple tennis shoes, or purple boots, you’ll want to know the various meanings associated with this unique and beautiful color.

First, it’s treated as the color of the royalty and elite. It’s linked to power and luxury, so wearing purple shoes introduces a regal feel. In the olden days, only the rich had the means to buy expensive items with purple dye.

Purple also symbolizes spirituality, wisdom, bravery, and dignity. In the U.S., the Purple Heart is awarded to courageous soldiers who have been injured or killed during battles. This color is usually linked to magic and mystery too. Then, it fosters creativity and imagination, helping you bring out new ideas.

In addition, purple helps soothe your mind and body. While darker shades of purple can symbolize frustration and sadness, lighter tones represent romantic energies.


  • What should I wear with purple shoes?

    You can wear purple shoes with a purple top and even a purple purse or neutral bags. If you want a casual comfortable look, you can use different types of jeans. You can also go for an all-black outfit plus your favorite purple shoes.

    At the same time, men can look cool, classy, or smart with purple shoes by wearing a camouflage jacket and black shorts or a purple overcoat and blue ripped jeans. White, dark gray, light gray, olive, blue, red, and navy trousers also look great with purple shoes.

  • Can I use custom orthotics 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.

    That said, many of our customers tell us the KURUSOLE technology offers better support and stability than they expected, and that they don’t need to wear their custom orthotics with KURU shoes.

  • 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.

Key Considerations Before Making Your Purchase

When shopping for purple shoes, take into account the following:

  • Size and fit
    Knowing your size doesn’t automatically mean every purple shoe on the market with the same size will fit you. Thus, don’t trust your size, try on the shoes, and check if there’s a finger-width space from the end of the shoe to your longest toe.
    Size and fit
  • Versatility and comfort
    Make sure the purple shoes you’re purchasing have enough softness and flexibility to ensure maximum comfort and protection. Our KURU shoes offer custom support and dynamic flexing, preventing pain, alignment, and posture issues.
    Versatility and comfort
  • Color and design
    Going back to your tastes and needs will help you choose what design and type of purple shoes you need. Also, decide whether you’ll be using purple and white shoes, purple and gold shoes, light purple shoes, dark purple shoes, or black and purple shoes more based on your activities.
    Color and design
  • Durability
    While the design is an important factor in selecting your purple shoes, prioritize quality and durability too. They should be made with top-grade materials and state-of-the-art technologies like our KURU patented technology.

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.

Purple Draft Slipper, fourth in 10 years is great! Arch support from KURU helps with my mobility related to knee surgery and hip osteoarthritis. This option in a slipper and comfortable outdoor shoe keep the support with me at all times. The Purple edition is fun and zesty!”

So versatile! I have a pair of purple women’s 8.5 wide, but my canine fitness business colors are black, red, gray and white. I love the fact that the women’s 8.5 wide is equivalent to the men’s 7 wide in this model sneaker. This pair fits exactly like the women’s 8.5, but allows me to have the colors of my business.”


Comfy for everyday! These are great for their comfort, traction, and warmth. I wear them while cooking, cleaning, and while at my desk. The trips to the cold basement for laundry are better with the shoes! I like the bit of traction on the bottom, since many slippers make me slide on our wood stairs, wood floors or marble. I picked purple and love the color! Great arch support and cushy but firm base. Very good for toe room. I usually wear between an 8 to 8.5 regular width shoe and the size 8 in this slipper fits perfectly.”
