KURU: The Best Shoes for Standing
Share with your friends.

When you spend long hours standing on your feet, you risk getting foot pain, or, even worse, a chronic condition such as plantar fasciitis.

But here is a little secret, it is not the standing that causes foot pain—it’s often the shoes you wear that leads to pain. Your feet are built to support the weight of the whole body and can withstand a lot of strain. However, since almost all shoes are flat inside, the long hours spent standing and walking in flat shoes is likely to cause you serious pain.

What if there were shoes for standing that could help prevent or ease the pain of standing? Imagine how much more productive you could be if you had the best shoes for standing.

Better quality of life.


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 foot beds which flatten your fat pad.

The ground-breaking KURUSOLE does something no other shoe can. Through a medical-grade orthotic midsole, KURUSOLE magically flexes to adapt to your feet for a happy and healthy fit. But that’s not all, this unique flexing cups your heel fat pad so nature’s shock absorber stays where it belongs—below your heel.

Our powerful, patented design works with nature to complement your feet for an instantly familiar fit. KURUSOLE empowers you by aligning your body’s foundation–your feet– for an in incredibly cushioned and natural gait. At the end of every day, you can feel healthier and more grateful.

Standing, transformed.
