As a nurse, you are on your feet from the time you clock into the time you head home. Standing on your feet all day can cause problems such as painful plantar fasciitis. There’s no “time out” when tending to patients and their health.
Unfortunately, virtually all nursing shoes are flat, which increases your chances of plantar fasciitis..
Imagine eliminating plantar fasciitis pain from your shift. How would your life change if there was a nursing shoe so innovative, it supported your foot so your body could heal from your plantar fasciitis symptoms? Imagine being able to last longer so you have the energy to provide even better bedside manners to your patients.
The unprecedented KURUSOLE™ technology has set the new standard for nursing shoes for plantar fasciitis. By working with nature, KURUSOLE™ custom adapts to your foot for superior stability, support and mobility. This proven footbed technology is so empowering to nurses that KURU is quickly becoming the #1 Nursing Shoe for Plantar Fasciitis Pain™.
It’s no wonder more podiatrists recommend KURU nursing shoes for plantar fasciitis.
When our team of medical and shoe experts set out to design a shoe to help those with plantar fasciitis, they knew they had to develop something that would transform your life.
The advanced KURUSOLE™ technology provides a medical-grade orthotic insert which hugs the contours of your feet to offer instantly-familiar heel and arch support. By cupping your heel, KURUSOLE™ helps keep your natural fat pad under your heel bone. This allows your body to naturally cushion your step while taking the sting out of your plantar fasciitis.
In addition, every pair of KURU shoes includes a pair of our custom molding Ultimate Insoles™. Using space-age foams, Ultimate Insoles™ uses your body heat to custom mold to your feet for superior shock absorption. When a nursing shoe offers high levels of injury prevention, you have the guarantee of less down time from your pain.
I have suffered from foot pain for years and have tried every kind of shoe I could find to help. Kuru shoes are the first shoe that I have found that provides the comfort and support that I need to help with the pain! These are the only shoes that I will buy! Money well spent!"

When I wore these for the first time, it felt like I was walking on clouds. I was skeptical but desperate to relieve my foot pain and these made the pain go away.I've worn them for a year and a half now and looking to get another pair... I will continue to buy these shoes for life.
I have...severe plantar fasciitis for approximately 19 years...the arch support is absolutely the best I've tried, even better than my custom orthotics, and they are still my go-to shoes for everyday use. My Kuru Chicanes have taken the place of almost every other shoe in my wardrobe.
Preventative Exercises and Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis
Roll it Out
Place a tennis ball under the affected foot and roll the foot back and forth while applying weight. This method helps stretch the muscles and tendons to relieve pain.
Ice the bottom of the affected foot in the morning and evening to reduce pain and inflammation.
One exercise is called marble pickup. With this exercise, put a handful of marbles on the ground and individually pick them up with your toes and drop them in a box or cup. This exercise can strengthen your foot muscles.
While standing, place your toes on the edge of a step and slowly lower your heel below your toes and hold for 15 seconds. This will stretch the achilles tendon and calf muscle.
Stretch at Night
For those suffering from more severe plantar fasciitis, wearing splints at night can be used to stretch the foot. Generally, these night splints stretch the heel and arch while you sleep, keeping the plantar fascia from getting contracted during the night.
All day wear.
