Kuru Technology

A Trio of Technologies To Fight Foot Pain

If you found this page, you probably have foot pain—and you’ve probably tried your share of plantar fasciitis shoe inserts, orthopedic shoe inserts, gel sole inserts, or shoe pads.

But what if you could get orthopedic-level support for painful conditions like plantar fasciitis in a stylish pair of shoes? How would it feel to skip the hassle of moving insoles around and simply head out the door knowing you have the best shoe inserts already built-in?

Our job is to make it easy for you to fight foot pain. That’s why we include these three game-changing technologies in every pair of KURUs.

Kuru Technology - Demographic, Layering
KURUSOLE Technology.


Not too wide, not too narrow—it’s just right.

The centerpiece to our trio of technologies is the patented power of KURUSOLE. More than just a deep heel cup or heel pad, KURUSOLE dynamically flexes with each step you take. This flexing action hugs your heels to cushion the impact of hitting the ground to reduce pain.

Even better, KURUSOLE works with your body to maximize cushioning. Mother Nature gave you a pillow of fat beneath your heel called the fat pad, which can wear down over time due to stress and impact. Our technology cups and contains the fat pad to hold it in place, reducing wear and tear to help you feel healthier and happier.

Our customers keep telling us that wearing KURUs feels like walking on clouds. That’s one of the reasons we call it the KURUCLOUD midsole. This blend of high-grade foams was inspired by performance running shoes and then perfected for all-day comfort. Enjoy lightweight cushion with plenty of bounce for Earth’s smoothest stride.

Ultimate Insoles

ULTIMATE INSOLES come in every pair of KURUs, so you can skip the hassle of purchasing inserts and moving them from shoe to shoe. We use dual-density foam to deliver support where you need it and cushion just where you want it. Even better, the foams adapt to the unique shape of your feet over time for a more-custom fit. The result is all-day comfort you can count on—month after month.

"My new daily favorites

I have had these shoes for a couple of weeks and find them to be very comfortable. I bought them because of my sore heels from PF and they have performed better than expected. The gel in the soles offer good cushioning, as well as, good arch support. I have since reccomended Kuru to several friends and am a new fan."

"Love the KURU sole technology!

I’m a healthcare student and was in need of a good pair of shoes to wear around the hospital for my 12 hour shifts. I wore my regular gym shoes and my feet and back instantly started hurting about 3 hours into my shift. My coworker recommended these shoes so I decided to give them a try. They are really stylish and comfortable! I did over 900 hours of clinical work in 6 months with no foot or back pain!! I’m buying another pair just so I can have a different color I love them so much! I recently bought a pair for my boyfriend who is a bartender. Also complains of sore feet. Two customers for life!"
