The Most Comfortable Shoes for Nurses

As a nurse, your day is hectic. Running, walking, and standing for long hours is not just mentally straining, but physically demanding as well. Don’t let foot pain be a main discomfort during your day.

Your job demands that you take care of other people. The last thing you need to worry about is developing a debilitating foot condition. The constant stress on your feet demands the most comfortable nurse shoes so you don't have to worry about your own pain. However, spending so much time on the hard, flat surfaces of a hospital floor can lead to regular foot pain. Or even worse, it may lead to an acute foot condition like plantar fasciitis.

What if there was a nurse shoe that could help prevent foot pain? Imagine going all day without achy feet to greet you when you get home. Imagine how grateful you would be with one less thing to worry about.

The many hours on your feet can’t be changed, but having the mobility for all-day comfort can.

KURU shoes are quickly becoming the #1 nurse shoes, because of the powerful comfort, pain relief, and security they provide. The revolutionary KURUSOLE™ midsole technology offers unprecedented support and cushioning that is transforming hospitals around the world.

KURU Kinetic White Teal Nurse Shoes
Technology for Nurses

Nature designed every foot with fat pads in the heel and forefoot to cushion and absorb shock with each step. Other premium comfort shoes mess with nature. They have flat footbeds which flatten your fat pads.

KURU Shoes vs Flat Shoes Fat Pad Comparison

The medical-grade KURUSOLE™ technology does what no other nurse shoe can. It flexes and forms to your foot as you run your rounds. Through an innovative patented design, KURUSOLE™ provides a more natural fit with increased stability in the arch and heel.

But we didn’t stop there. A powerful orthotic heel cradle dynamically cups your heel to reinforce the natural cushioning of the body’s heel fat pad. This gives you a superior, more secure fit, so you can do more at work while avoiding health issues yourself.

KURUSOLE™ helps you feel good as you do your rounds.

I'm a nurse and I work 12 hour shifts. I am standing and walking most of that time. These shoes were great, I didn't even have to break them in. The first time I wore them was a very busy shift. I had minimal pain in my feet afterward, where in the recent past I have been limping in pain. No joke, I thought I might have to find another job because of my foot pain...These are comfortable and quiet which is also good for Nursing!

I work as a registered nurse in a major hospital. I wear my kurus all the time and absolutely love them. Best thing about them is that my feet never hurt after a full twelve hour shift on my feet.

~Sarah H.

I'm on my feet 12 plus hours a day - seven days a week. I developed plantar fasciitis and could barely walk. Within 2 to 3 weeks of wearing these shoes and ice on my foot at night it was 90% better. Today one year later I can't even tell what foot it was. I just ordered another pair and still wear them. They are so comfortable. Thanks Kuru!
