Best Shoes For Every Season

Explore by season to find your perfect fit!

Not every shoe works for every type of weather—just ask warm-weather natives who visit snow for the first time.

But when you know what you need, whether you see freezing rain or blazing sun out your window, you can remain confident your shoes have what it takes to withstand the elements.

From women’s winter shoes to men’s fall footwear, KURU offers styles for every season, each featuring our patented technology designed to keep you moving pain free.

Experts Guide to Shoes for Every Season

Find fall shoes, men’s summer shoes, winter shoes for women, and more!

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter—when it comes to finding the right footwear, each season brings its own set of must-have features.

In the spring and summer, you might opt for a light and airy mesh to keep your feet ventilated through toasty days, while in fall and winter, you might do best with weather-resistant materials that provide a little extra warmth and protection.

At KURU, we aim to bring you pain-relieving styles for any time of year, whether summer shoes or winter boots, so you can keep doing what you love—rain or shine.

Fall Shoes: Bring on the Boots

Fall is a delightful season with a high cozy factor. Since it’s full of flannels and cardigans, ankle boots and beanies, you’ll want to make sure your feet have just as much comfort.

Ideal shoes for fall are those that can transition well from warmish days to coolish nights. Although Autumn is rarely extreme, fall shoes still need to be able to allow for breathability while being prepared for possible snow and ice.

Ankle boots and leather sneakers are a smart choice for this sometimes-warm, sometimes-brisk time of year. KURU offers a wide variety of fall shoes for women and men to give you transitional comfort you can count on.

Leather is a versatile shoe material choice for cooler months with its natural weather-resistant and temperature-regulating abilities. Many KURU shoes offer uppers made from this fine material, including the women’s LUNA or TEMPO and the men’s QUEST or ROAM.

Spring Shoes: Bounce into Action

After a long season of colder temperatures, spring often comes as a welcome respite and a time for new beginnings.

Footwear that blends lightweight comfort and breathable fabric—while still being effective when stepping through a rainy-day puddle—is best for this versatile, temperate season.

KURU offers a range of materials in its footwear, and options like canvas, mesh, and weather-resistant leather fit the bill for spring.

You can get away with both warmer and cooler styles this time of year, so we recommend having a shoe in your arsenal that can do both. Our PACE canvas boat shoe can effortlessly go from warm to cool, and the ROAM classic court shoe can work just as well with pants or shorts.

Given all that melting ice and those rainy forecasts, spring can be a slippery time of year. Shoes that offer non-slip traction give you more stability for wet conditions. A slip-resistant shoe like the KINETIC allows you to move effortlessly between wet grass and dry pavement.

Summer Shoes: Keep Cool with Airy Styles

This time of year, footwear should be just as easy, breezy as a sun-soaked day at the beach.

Summer is the perfect time to break out your sandals and slip-ons, your mesh and your canvas. Shoes that are light in color and airy in fabric will help your feet stay cool and dry—even when the weather isn’t.

KURU offers a wide variety of summer shoes for women and men, from open-toed sandals to closed-toed mesh. Take your pick between warm-weather favorites that always keep comfort a priority.

In the summertime, you’ll want a shoe that keeps you cool and matches your activity. Try an airy thong sandal like KALA for a day at the beach, slip-ons like BREEZE for a weekend brunch, or athletic shoes with breathable mesh uppers like our ATOM or QUANTUM for ventilation during your gym sesh.

Kuru Guru Footwear Facts

A study conducted in the UK found that average adults walk more steps in the summer than they do in the winter. To keep those active feet healthy when traversing long distances, we recommend wearing high-quality supportive footwear for all-day pain relief.

Winter Shoes: Snug Feet Even Through Sleet

Many winter shoes feature the protection you need on the outside, but not the support you need on the inside.

For long days in and out of cold weather and wet conditions, go with a shoe that not only offers weather-resistant materials, it provides adequate arch support and shock absorption for inside-out comfort.

KURU’s line of winter shoes for men and women features naturally insulating, weather-resistant leather uppers and rubber outsoles with our patented tech built into every pair for Pain Relief Beyond Belief.

Shoes that offer increased warmth, traction, and weather resistance help this time of year. For cold-weather adventures, we recommend an outdoor shoe like QUEST or trail runners like CHICANE with traction-heavy outsoles to keep you stable and pain free through every puddle. Or try the naturally insulating LUNA for a winter shoe for women in an office-compatible style.

When winter hits, slush, snow, and rain is the name of the game. To help protect your winter running shoes or winter boots from the elements, spritz a layer of KURU Shield, our proprietary blend of shoe protector spray. This water-repellent layer can help lengthen the life of your shoes all season long.
