Rated 5 out of 5 by from the most comfortable Kuru shoe I am a woman and have to wear all black shoes for work, so I often have to buy mens Kurus. I just bought the Atom in black and it is fantastic. The Atom is light weight and breathes more than the quantum or carrera. The Atom is the most comfortable of the shoes from Kuru I have worn in both the ladies and them mens lines. One word of caution. I normally buy a men's 9 for my size 10 women's foot because in the quantum the 8.5 men's is just too small. I bought the size 9 Atom and it was way too large. But no problem because Kuru happily exchanged them for the smaller size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favorite Kurus in a decade Well, I didn't plan on writing a review today until I came to the site and saw the previous two reviews talking about the Atom having a narrow toe box. This is not my experience with the Atom. Rather, I'm quite fond of, and thankful for, the generous toe box. I'm probably on my 15th pair of Kuru's since 2009. In their early days, all Kuru shoes had a generous toe box. Sometime in the last five or six years, Kuru has gone to a rather narrow toe box and now my only choices are the Aalto Chukka and the Kivi unless I want my toes painfully squeezed. It's a good thing I absolutely love the Aalto Chukkas! The other shoe I've been able to wear, although not quite as comfortably, is the Quantum. But the main problem with those is that they are about a 1/2 size smaller than the Chukkas and Kivis. So I tended to come home from the gym with sore feet and stopped using the Quantums. Taking a lesson from that experience, and being very excited about this new Atom style, I took a wild guess and ordered a half size up from what I wear in the Chukkas and Kivi. The fit is perfect! And I absolutely love the Atom! Similar to a previous reviewer, I have been bummed about the lack of new men's styles over the years compared to the women's. Kudos to Kuru for coming up with this style. Besides using these for the gym, I'll be happy to use these when traveling internationally, as I love the way they look. Bottom line: 1) I find the toe box more generous than any other regular Kuru shoe (i.e., not including the official "wide" options in some styles); and 2) I do recommend ordering a half size up from the Chukkas or Kivis. If you wear the Quantums, order the same size. I hope this helps some folks out there!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Shoe but... I was expecting that this shoe would be an improvement to the Quantum. It wasn’t. The shoe has all the bells and whistles that you would expect from a Kuru. But the shoe runs small and has a very narrow toe box. Mind you, I realize Kuru’s take some time to “break-in”. I’ve worn these about a month and it still ‘no bueno’. Now I’m gathering that IF you order a half-size large you may have a better result. But for the pair I have... they just may have to be deep six’d.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disapointing I've been buying KURU shoes exclusively for the last five years. I had chronic Plantar Fasciitis in both feet for years and KURU shoes have helped me get rid of it completely in one foot and improved the other immensely. Until this pair of shoes the only complaint I have had about KURU is that the inside of the shoe doesn't last as long as the outside. I have bought a lot of shoes from them. The ATOM shoes have a major problem that other KURUs don't. They have very little room for the toes. KURUs normally have a lot of toe room and that increases the comfort level. These have very little toe room and they are miserable to wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great new addition I've often complained that Kuru (this is my 6th pair) doesn't have a large enough men's selection (more/better women's options)...and lacked style/hippness but ATOM really does address both of these gripes...fits like a glove, the extra padding adds to an already super comfortable fit and they look great (Kuru is right that they can function both as a fitness and lifestyle shoe to wear around town or as business casual)...2-thumbs up/10 out of 10...way to go Kuru-please do some different/more of this type of versatile shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from KURU did it again! I have been singing the praises of Quantums for 4+ months since I received my first pair. I had a severe case of Achilles Tendonitis, went to therapy for 3 months with minimal improvement, my doc then sent me to an orthopedic. I was advised I needed an injection, with 6 weeks in a boot and "hopefully" it would be better. I left. I happened to be on Instagram and saw KURU ad. I researched, got Quantums and LITERALLY was much better the first time I wore them. I wore them for several weeks before my prior level 7-8 pain was reduced to 1-2. Today? Maybe level 1. Fast forward--just got the new Atoms....I will NEVER abandon my Quantums, but the Atoms are EVEN better! I am waiting for the added colors to have a backup pair. My doc has now recorded my info on KURU and will reco them for plantar and Tendonitis. I am 70, an old guy, but I walk 6-9 miles every day and work out also. KURU has given me that freedom back! Las t thing, my ortho told me "this will not go away on it's own, you need an injection". Wrong pal, get some KURU's!

is it true to size ?

Asked by: Jami265
Yes! The ATOM runs true to size. We recommend ordering the same size you normally purchase.
