KURU: Shoes that help with heel pain after running


Do you suffer from sharp heel pain? Is your heel pain constant, nagging and debilitating? Unfortunately, almost everyone deals with heel pain after running or just walking.

Share with your friends.

Sharp heel pain can happen to anyone, regardless of physical fitness, gender or body type. In fact, active people are often at a greater risk of heel pain or heel spurs.

Many professionals suggest surgery as the only heel pain and heel spur solution. However, surgery is invasive, expensive, and with long recovery time. What's more, your feet will never be the same after surgery, and your heel pain may still reappear.

Imagine a self-treatment for heel pain you can do at home. What if this heel pain treatment was as simple as a shoe that cradles your heel for comfort so you can forget the pain and have the energy to do more? If you suffer from constant heel pain, shoes with heel support are the help you need.

This proven technology is designed to adapt to your feet and limit the heel pain after running and other activities.

Why others love KURU

I've been wearing Kuru shoes for at least 8 months. At the time I started wearing these shoes I had heel pain in my left foot. Now my heel pain is gone. I will always wear Kuru.

~ Diane, N

I tried every shoe advertised for heel pain and nothing helped. I've done every stretch recommended to no avail. I started wearing your shoe and have finally realized, my pain is about 99% gone.

~ Redlime, GA

Used my shoes from Kuru to go hiking in Colorado. I didn't feel any pain from my plantar fasciitis during hikes of several hours. I will order more Kuru shoes based on the success I have had.

What Causes Heel Pain

The plantar fascia is a thick, fibrous connective tissue that runs from the heel to the ball of the foot. This strong and tight tissue helps support and maintain the shape of the arch. It is also one of the major transmitters of weight across the foot as you walk or run, which places tremendous stress on the plantar fascia becoming the cause you get sharp heel pain after running or during it. One of the easiest solutions is getting shoes with heel support.

Plantar Fasciitis

When you have plantar fasciitis, the plantar fascia becomes inflamed and degenerative. This makes normal activities quite painful.

Symptoms are usually at their worst in the morning after sleep. At that time, the plantar fascia is tight, so even simple movements stretch the plantar fascia, causing severe heel pain. As you begin to loosen the plantar fascia, the pain usually subsides, but often returns with prolonged standing or walking.

Usually, heel spurs form in response to plantar fasciitis. However, while 70 percent of patients with plantar fasciitis have a heel spur, X-rays show that almost 50 percent of patients with no symptoms of plantar fasciitis do have a heel spur. As a result, many people have heel spurs without even knowing it.
