"LUNA Chelsea Boot

I got these boots and so happy I did. Super cute! You can wear them with pants, dresses, whatever you want because they are light and comfortable. Very happy to have them."

"I love these boots!

So comfortable, no breaking in time. These are my 2nd pair. I wear them all day, every day. These have healed my very bad plantar fasciitis in a few months when custom orthotics did not work. I don’t know how that is even possible, but these boots are a true lifesaver for me. And they look good too. Thank you!"

If you’re looking to step out in style using a fresh pair of boots, here are just a few ways in which you can strut your stuff.

Ankle Boots + Jeans: If you’re looking to show off your beautiful ankles, be sure to go with ankle boots and cropped jeans which is a tried and tested combo. Using brown boots in this pairing will ensure that you give off a nice and relaxed vibe.

Tall Boots: These are knee-high boots that were inspired by the boots that equestrians would wear. They are the ideal partner for casual outfits and can give you a more polished look.

Ankle Boots: These boots come up to the ankles and can have a lace-up, slip-on, or zip-closure design. They are suitable for both day and night adventures and look great with almost anything.

Rain Boots: Rain boots are made to protect our feet from the rain and are made from materials like rubber to keep them dry.

Snow Boots: Just like rain boots, snow boots are made to keep our feet dry and away from snow and the harsh elements that come with the winter season.

These are worth every penny. I am new to hiking (my daughter convinced me I would like it) and bought these based on a lot of research for hiking with occasional Plantar Fasciitis. They are incredible. I followed the break in rules strictly."

I bought these shoes just under a month ago for work. I am typically walking on concrete floors all day long (10 miles a day average) and my knees and back feel so much better already. I definitely will be buying more Kurus after this purchase."

Answers to the most frequently asked questions are just a click away.

What are the best boots for plantar fasciitis?


To find out the answer to this question, be sure to take an accurate measurement of your feet to determine their width, length, and the arch of each foot. Purchasing boots that don’t fit you will only lead to more problems down the road. The most comfortable boots for you will be the ones that properly fit and support your feet, so be sure to look through our website to find the pair for you.

What are the best boots for standing all day?


No matter what your job is, your feet deserve to get the support they need. The right pair of boots will be designed to relieve pain and fatigue from your feet while reducing the amount of pressure you feel after standing for extended periods.

I just received a pair of your shoes and my feet are sore/hurt after wearing them. Why is that?


Some customers experience tenderness when they first start wearing a new pair of KURUs. That’s ok! Your body may need time to adjust to the new levels of anatomical support you experience with our patented KURUSOLE technology. Our shoes are also designed to mold to your unique foot shape, which takes a bit of a break-in period. To help mitigate this, we suggest you follow our break-in procedure, including wearing your KURUs for a couple hours per day around the house in the first couple of weeks as they break in and form to your foot.

How do I know which shoe to buy? Which is best for me?


The best shoe for you will depend on your unique foot type and the style you’re looking for.

The best shoes for men and women alike offer adequate arch support and cushion. Whether you’re looking for bright blue shoes, dark blue shoes, or white shoes with blue accents, KURU's line of pain-relieving footwear help alleviate foot pain symptoms for all-day comfort.

How is the arch support of KURU shoes?


KURU shoes deliver excellent arch support without the need for thick inserts or expensive, custom orthotics.

Superior arch support starts with our patented KURUSOLE technology, which delivers natural cushioning and dynamically hugs your heel with every step. Every foot is unique, and our ULTIMATE INSOLES adapt to fit your needs by using your own body heat to custom-mold to the shape of your feet over time.

The corrective nature of our superior arch support is designed to neutralize your weight distribution and place your foot in the best anatomical position. This support can take some getting used to. We suggest slowly breaking in your new shoes over the course of 2–3 weeks.

Are your shoes considered orthopedic shoes?


While our shoes are not currently considered orthopedic by a medical standard, we have received thousands of positive reviews from customers who say their KURU shoes with good arch support helped reduce or eliminate their pain—from plantar fasciitis to bunions.

Each of our shoes feature a wide toe box, superior arch support, shock absorption and patented heel technology, engineered for pain relief.
