Discover the Most Comfortable Shoes: A Guide to Finding the Perfect Fit

From arch support to cushioning—everything you need to know to find the most comfortable shoes for your feet.

Overview

We often take our feet for granted until foot pain rears its ugly head. While there are many kinds of foot pain with a variety of causes, the good news is that good shoes can help! Whether you need shoes for work, for play, or just for wearing around the house—the key is finding the cushion and support your feet need and you deserve.

KURUs are designed from the ground up to deliver Pain Relief Beyond Belief, thanks to a trio of core technologies we build into every pair. Each of our shoes builds on that foundation, so let’s take a look at how to choose the perfect fit for you.

  • Backpacking

    "Have shoes, will travel” is seemingly a motto or mantra that backpackers, hikers, and trekkers embody. But before you venture out into the great outdoors, make sure you check what shoes you’re wearing first.
  • Adults

    Once we reach adulthood, a lot of things change. These include our responsibilities, personality, fashion style, and yes—even shoes.

  • Beige

    Beige, nude, skin tone, tan, soft brown—the color goes by many names but its appeal stays the same. Some people may see beige as a boring color and avoid it, preferring more colorful shoes. But that is far from the truth.
  • Medium

    Feet come in a wide range of different shapes and sizes, and so should shoes! If you’ve been consistently experiencing foot pain, it might not be because of the length of time you’ve been wearing your shoes or the physical activity you’re doing in them—it might be because you’re not wearing shoes designed to comfortably fit your feet.

  • Diabetes

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy affects your peripheral nervous system—all the nerves outside your brain and spine, including your sensory nerves. Symptoms are often first felt in the feet and legs.
  • Aesthetic

    Nothing is more annoying than finding a pair of shoes that look perfect, only to find out that it pinches, rub, and cuts into your skin. Imagine struggling halfway through your day, limping around until you get home.
  • Construction

    Many job site workers often find themselves without the best construction shoes that offer the correct level of comfort and protection required for their demanding tasks.
  • Athleisure

    A great pair of athleisure shoes can only be created from a continuous process of getting the right style and fit. While some shoes can provide a casual fit, they just don’t have the right style you’re looking for—they’re often poorly constructed and also flat.
  • Cotton

    Cotton is a common material used in making all kinds of footwear, especially cotton canvas shoes, cotton tennis shoes, cotton slip-on shoes, and cotton boat shoes. Moreover, these no-fuss shoes don’t need constant care to keep them looking good.

    Here comes the sun. This newly warm weather may inspire you to dine on the patio for the first time since winter, or take a spring hike on freshly melted trails. Wherever you want to go, shoes for spring are the perfect pairing for this versatile, colorful season.

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.

Pain Relief Accomplished. I have been wearing a shoe recommended for plantar fasciitis and heel spurs with a little relief but by the end of the day my feet hurt. I tried these Kuru Atoms and OMG what a huge relief. I don’t want to take them off. They do not compare and I wear them all day. I have purchased 2 more pair and all I can say is THANK YOU!!!!"

Fantastic Hiking Shoe. I bought these shoes for my husband and he was excited that they came in his size. He cannot find 12.5 in stores very often and hasn’t worn his exact shoe size for many years. When they got here, he put them on the next day to go to work and he loves them!"

ACS 1990

My Nursing Shoes. I went back to hospital floor nursing last December, it took five shoes to find the right ones that would get me through thirteen hour days. Kurus fit and I was able to wear a full day the first time I wore them. Nine months later, I bought a second pair, even though not broken in like the first, no issues wearing a full day. Fantastic Shoes!"
