Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so... ok... This is my first pair of Kurus, ad so far they feel really good. I don't have heel problems, but arch support is critical for me. These shoes support my arches well. I'm still in the breaking-in period, so I'm sure they will even more comfortable in time. My only complaint is that they don't come in 11.5. After reading the size guide, I determined that size 11 would be slightly too small. My only choice was 12, which I suspected would be slightly too big. Sure enough, they are. I feel too much room in these. When I'm walking downhill, my feet shift off of the arch supports (which, as I mentioned, is the most important part for me). Other Kuru styles come in 11.5, so I don't understand why these don't. I bought them for an upcoming trip to Paris, so I didn't have time to send them back. I'll still buy Kurus, but only styles that come in the proper size from now on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wears out too soon This is the second pair of the Carrera shoes I've had. Love how they feel on my feet and have helped tremendously with my plantar fasciitis; however, I keep getting a hole in the mesh where it meets the leather. :-/

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great heel support I've been wearing Kuru shoes for several years and wouldn't be without them. My feet are pain free when wearing them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Killed my ankles! These shoes are so cute, one of the nicer styles of Kuru, but they just didn't work for me. After wearing for about 10 minutes, I thought my ankles were going to snap in two. I tried wearing them indoors several times in hopes that I would be able to "break them in" but I just couldn't handle the ankle pain. They also did not help my plantar fasciitis at all, and may have worsened it. I really wanted to like these, but in the end I exchanged them for a pair of the quantums which work much better for my situation!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Had to return They were too wide & overall too big. The length was right for my foot but the rest of the shoe was too wide/ big. The arch & cushioning of shoe felt good...disappointed i had to return.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great but not They are comfortable at first but then they feel so tight on my feet later that it cuts circulation I wish I had gotten the ones I ordered last time. My feet hurt so bad by the end of the day after wearing these. I don't like them I'm giving them to my husband since I already have been wearing them therefore can't return them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfortable at first then it changes I purchased a different shoe a year ago and within a year shoes collapsed. Love them a lot. I decided it was time for new shoes and got these ones. These shoes are not what I was hoping to be. Seems like when I first put them on they feel ok on me. But the longer I wear them the more they hurt me. I have wide feet and these shoes are very tight around my foot. I even loosened the shoe laces but didn't help too much. I can't return them because I've already been wearing them. Im probably going to give these to my husband and get the shoes I ordered last time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pain a Thing of the Past I have a lot of health issues. My feet and legs are no longer part of the problems! Took a couple days to adjust the ties to fit me perfectly, but now I can just leave them tied and slip them on. Worth the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from long awaited comfort. i bought my first pair around 1 year ago and so glad i did . No more heel pain from pharmacy floor. What comfort and wonders these shoes are. So glad they found me. Love the coral color even better in person. I have been through many brands of shoes and while kurus are slightly pricey 1 pair of these last me longer than 2 to 4 pairs of other brands costing me more money in the long run for durability. Oh yeah and customer service - Brae- is second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nursing shoes! I have been on my feet for many years as a nurse and have never had a more comfortable shoe that gives me the support I need over those many hours on my feet. Highly recommend to all you health care providers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from shiny black purple and sparkly Kuru no longer carries the color of Carrera that I purchased and I wish they would expand the color varieties as the shoe has worked well for me and was beneficial for my plantar fasciitis.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did wonders for my PF It truly helped me with my plantar fasciitis. However, the only downside is that the shoe makes noise while I walk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these shoes! So comfortable - these are my go to for daily wear and workouts! Be aware, however, that not every colorway fits the same. The black/arctic blue, for instance, fit drastically different from the black/peach pink (at least 1/2 size different in length and even narrower!). That is my only complaint about this near perfect shoe - I hope kuru can get this worked out some day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great Great shoe, very comfortable and able to walk/work all day without heel pain. Only problems were took a while to break in... the back part of the shoe seemed stiff for about 2 weeks. Very breathable. Great for warmer weather. Maybe not warm enough for this winter?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best choice yet for shoes! Best Shoes Ever!!!! I am in love with these. I bought them for my teen daughter who has weak ankle joints and I also bought them for myself! I spend hours on my feet and these are amazing!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kuru I went ahead and paid for these shoes even though they were a little more expensive than most shoes. I was hoping they would help the pain in my feet. It seemed like they were going to help the first couple of days, but no my feet are still killing me so there went that 120 dollars. Now I will have to try for some other type of shoe. One of the reasons I purchased these was because of the reviews. I seemed to have the same problem, but my feet are still killing me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great shoes but the insoles wear out quickly I love the shoes 3rd pair ive bought but the insoles wear out at about 4 to 6 months
Date published: 2018-10-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Support and Comfort This is my second pair of Kuru walking shoes. I really like this style because it gives me great support and they are comfortable. I have "72 year old feet" which brings the usual aches and pains when I do my 30 minute fitness walk 5 days/week. Like us all, I used to be able to do so much more. Kuru gets the job done! I did find that the back rubbed my heel and caused a blister the first few times wearing, but I re-configured the laces and wore thicker socks. That solved the problem.The arch support is excellent for my high arch feet. The fit was true to size ( 8 1/2M).....and I love the tangerine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carrera - Women's Performance Fitness Runner - Good Shoes I admit that I do not write reviews on purchases but these shoes lived up to their advertising so I felt that I needed to share my experience. I started walking 10,000 steps a day in July and quickly developed foot pain that persisted for a couple of months. I found these shoes on the internet and decided to give them a try -- I needed relief for the pain in my feet. It literally took less than 2 weeks of wearing these shoes (10,000 steps a day) for all of my foot pain to disappear! I am so grateful that I found these shoes and recommend them to others who experience foot pain - give them a try to see if they can help you too.

I wear a lift in my shoes, are the soles removable?

Asked by: JanetCNA
Absolutely! The insoles in our KURU shoes are definitely removable and can be replaced with other custom orthotics and/or lifts. Due to the anatomical shape of the KURUSOLE™, custom orthotics with a rounded heel fit best into the shoe. If your lift is squared off on the underside, then it may not fit very well into our deep heel cup since the heel of our shoes is rounded like your foot. I hope this information was helpful!

I have an Arizona brace on one foot and an orthodox on other. I'm having a terrible time finding sneakers. Do they have removable inner soles
Asked by: Anonymous
Great question! The insoles in our KURU shoes are definitely removable and can accommodate custom orthotics/insoles/braces. Due to the anatomical shape of the KURUSOLE heel cup, custom orthotics with a rounded heel fit best into the shoe. If the custom orthotic is squared off on the underside, then it may not fit very well into our deep heel cup since the heel of our shoes is rounded like your foot. Most customers have found that the KURUSOLE midsole is stable and comfortable enough that they don't need to wear their custom orthotics.

Are they slip resistant
Asked by: Roxanna
The CARRERA shoes are not slip resistant or anti-slip, we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. The only slip resistant or anti-slip KURU shoe that we currently offer is the KINETIC shoe style.
