What are Slip-On Shoes?

Slip-on shoes are a type of shoe that can be put on and taken off without the use of laces or other fasteners. They typically have a low heel and are made from flexible materials, such as leather, cloth, or rubber. These shoes are often considered to be more comfortable and easy to wear than shoes with laces or buckles. If you’re looking for a shoe that you can slip on and off with ease, then slip-on shoes are the perfect choice for you.

While slip-on shoes have been around for centuries, they gained popularity in the United States in the early 20th century. During this time, business casual attire became more common, and slip-on shoes were seen as a more comfortable alternative to dress shoes. In recent years, slip-on shoes have undergone a style renaissance and are now available in a variety of colors, materials, and designs like our KURU slip-on.

Slip-On Shoe Care Tips

Simplify the process of finding a pair of ankle support shoes that fit well with these helpful tips from our KURU gurus.

  • Clean them regularly: Use a soft brush or cloth to remove dirt and debris from your shoes. It is important to remove any dirt or salt from your shoes to prevent them from becoming stained. You can also use a mild soap and water solution to clean them if they are particularly dirty.
  • Remove stains immediately: If you spill something on your shoes, it’s important to remove the stain as soon as possible. Use a damp cloth to blot the stain, then let the shoe air dry. By doing so, you can prevent the stain from setting in and becoming difficult to remove.
  • Store them properly: When you’re not wearing your slip-on shoes, make sure to store them in a cool, dry place. Avoid storing them in direct sunlight or near a heat source. This will prevent the shoes from becoming damaged, and you can keep them looking like new.
  • Apply a waterproofing spray: If you plan on wearing your shoes in wet weather, it’s a good idea to apply a waterproofing spray. This will keep your shoes from getting damaged by water. You can find waterproofing sprays at most shoe stores.


  • How do I lace shoes so they slip on?

    There are a few different ways to lace shoes so they slip on, depending on the type of shoe. You can simply leave the laces undone, or you can use a “ladder” technique in which you criss-cross the laces over the tongue of the shoe.

  • Can you wear socks with slip on shoes?

    Yes, you can wear socks with slip-on shoes! In fact, many people prefer to wear socks with their slip-on shoes for added warmth and comfort. Simply choose a pair of socks that are thin enough to not make your shoes too tight.

  • 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.

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.

  • How KURU brings relief


    Our patented KURUSOLE is an unseen hero in our KURU shoes. Though it may not be visible from the outside, KURUSOLE gently cups the heel and keeps it in place to minimize wear and tear. It also helps encourage a natural gait and healthy posture.

Love this sandal! This sandal looks even better in person, a step up from a basic flip-flop. Looks and fits great. Thanks Kuru for another great shoe.


Feel great. Second pair of kala’s and many pairs of Kuru’s my plantar fasciitis loves them all.

Great comfort. Most comfortable pool sandal I’ve ever owned. This is my second pair because the first pair was stolen at a resort in Mexico!

Comfortable and cute! I bought these sandals about three weeks ago and they are so comfortable & look terrific on my feet. My foot is narrow and I have a difficult time getting this style from other shoemakers to fit me – so this is a first! I do feel like I’m still breaking them in, but based on the comfort and the way they feel I suspect I will get years of wear out of them.
