Our Story

Welcome! I’m Bret Rasmussen, Founder and CEO at KURU.

I first dreamed of starting a shoe company in 5th grade. This early spark led me to start KURU, and I couldn't be more grateful for the many people this dream has impacted.

KURU exists to help you live a life you love. Thanks to our team of passionate people and a powerful underlying mission, we’ve grown from launching our heel-hugging KURUSOLE tech in 2008 to an expanding lineup of feel-it-to-believe-it footwear.

I promise, KURU shoes are unlike anything else. I hope you’ll give us a chance and Heel the Difference™.

These are some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned. I just returned from three weeks in Italy and Greece, walking 5 - 10 miles per day over uneven, cobblestone streets. My feet should have been miserable at the end of the day, but they were not.

Amazing Miracle Shoe! This shoe is amazing! I came across Kuru while searching on the internet to try and relieve my pain issues. Kuru shoes have far surpassed my expectations. Not only has my foot pain improved drastically I have also noticed that my knee pain is also getting better! The shoe is so comfortable and made very well.

Michele214

I just felt compelled to share my awesome experience with my Kurus. Because they have allowed me to continue the awesome experience of being able to walk the fairways with my daughter, my Kurus are priceless.
