Experts Guide to Pink Shoes

Wondering if pink shoes are the right addition to your wardrobe? Here’s what you need to think about before making a purchase.

Pink is a versatile color, so we’re sure you already have pieces in your wardrobe that would pair well with your new pink shoes.

Take a look at the predominant colors of your wardrobe. If you wear mostly neutrals, then you can go for either light pink shoes or hot pink shoes—both would match the clothes you already own.

If you wear mostly dark colors, a good place to start is pink and black shoes. Bright or hot pink shoes would also complement dark colors, but they can be a little overwhelming if you’re not used to bright pink.

If your clothes are mostly pastels or whites, then you can go with pink and white shoes, or light pink shoes. Both naturally look good with pastels.

There’s no need to worry if your clothes and style fluctuate between lights and darks. A safe place to start is with a reliable pair of pink and white tennis shoes, especially ones with a softer pink color. The pale shade and addition of white will make it match almost anything!

This way, you can focus more on the quality and make of the shoes. Make sure to buy footwear with an ample toe box and sufficient cushioning, so you can wear your pink shoes for a long time without fear of foot pain.

"Pair #4
I love this shoe. I have these shoes in hot pink, blue, gray, and black. I love the versatility. I wear these daily whether teaching a career tech class or on the floor as a nurse. My feet ache no more, and I am a very grateful returning customer."
-DEHOLMRN
"They Feel Great
Yes, I am a female who bought these men's flip flops...a feminine female. 1st Kuru's ladies' flip flops are out of stock. Secondly, the pictures of the out of stocks ones are trimmed in blue or pink so I wouldn't have ordered them anyway. I like neutral flip flops that I can wear with anything. Having no said that, these are THE MOST COMFORTABLE FLIP FLOPS I have ever worn. They feel great. I am ordering the brown pair. Oh, and ladies, they look good on my feet especially with my feet done and toenails painted."

Pair Your Pink Footwear

Wondering how to style your pink shoes? Our KURU GURUs outline the best ways to wear them below.

The best place to start when pairing pink footwear is with colors that match or coordinate. Fortunately, pink is quite the versatile color.

First, you won’t go wrong styling pink shoes with neutral shades. These include: black, white, beige or cream, and gray.

Neutrals would also be good to wear with pink. Look for pink and white shoes (or pink and black shoes if you wear white or black often) to create a more harmonious look.

Lighter pinks match best with other pale or pastel shades, such as mint green or light blue. Coral pink shoes look better with either pink or orange, while shocking deep hues or hot pink shoes would pair well with a matching shade of pink or darker colors like black. You can also pair it with white, or other bright colors, for a color-blocking ensemble.

Depending on the length of your pants, you might want to opt for invisible socks for a cleaner and more formal look.

Outfit ideas for women:

Pink running shoes are easy to style with casual, everyday wear. On errand days, you can wear pink shoes with white shorts, a solid color tee, and invisible socks.

For a casual yet office-appropriate outfit, you can wear pink tennis shoes with dark blue jeans, a long-sleeved blouse, and a long pink coat.

For formal business wear: pale pink boots look great with an all-white pantsuit.

Outfit ideas for men:

If you’re just testing the waters, you won’t go wrong with an all-black outfit and pink tennis shoes. This way, you can build up the confidence to mix and match outfits with pink footwear.

This all-black style tip applies to both casual and formal wear. For casual wear, you can go with black jeans, a black shirt, and a leather jacket. For the office, you can pair light pink shoes with a business casual black suit and turtleneck.

If you want to add more colors to your outfit, then dark green or dark blue are great color options. A dark green jacket, dark blue jeans, and black shirt would pair well with both soft pink shoes and brighter pinks.


Shoe Care Tips

Follow these simple tips to keep your pink shoes looking their best for years to come.

Always wipe any dirt or mud off your pink shoes after each use to prevent dirt from staining permanently.

When cleaning pink running shoes, take a closer look at what material they are made of first. Different materials require their own cleaning and washing precautions.

Leather sandals and shoes should never be submerged or washed with soapy water. Canvas or rubber shoes may be able to survive your washer, but that’s generally discouraged. Always double-check the brand’s washing and cleaning instructions first.

You can clean canvas, mesh, and pink tennis shoes with fabric uppers with a gentle soap solution. Wet a brush or towel in the soapy water and brush or wipe away the dirt. Rinse off the soap suds by wiping with a damp but clean towel.

A shoe cleaning gel that works on both fabric and leather shoes is a great alternative, too. You can also protect your pink tennis shoes from dirt, grime, and stains using a high-grade shoe protector spray—like the KURU Shield Shoe Protector.

The Color Psychology of Pink

Learn more about the meanings behind the colors we wear and how we can craft the perfect color palette.

Pink is a calming and non-threatening color. It is most often used to represent femininity, tender love, innocence, and youth. However, pink is also a color of hope—giving off a warm and comforting vibe that inspires a sense of optimism.

In many cultures and societies in the west, pink is typically used as a feminine color. Many products marketed towards women are packaged with plenty of pink. Wearing pink can help show your gentle, vulnerable, and loving side.

The combination of pink as a color of hope and optimism, as well as its largely feminine connotation, makes it a popular color to represent women-centric movements or organizations. Among these is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which uses pink ribbons as its symbol.

In popular idioms, pink is used to show good health (“in the pink”) or indicate that things are going smoothly (“everything is rosy”).

Light or pale pink shades can have a calming effect. In fact, studies suggest that exposure to large amounts of rose pink has a positive effect on nerves and anxiety. It may also help soothe emotional energies. In contrast to aggressive red colors, pink can help relieve feelings of anger, resentment, and aggression that it may inspire.

This shoes are so supportive and comfortable! I love the design of all black and light touch of pink and pink speckles, normally I don’t like pink but this is very soft. Would highly recommend, 3rd pair of kurus since last fall. Can’t hardly wear any other brands now that I’ve worn this brand."

Who wouldn't love a black sandal with pink accents? Not only is it attractive, it's also comforable, even after a lot of walking. I'm glad to have purchased two pairs; am certain they'll get much wear."

FAQs

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

What should I wear with pink shoes?

One important consideration when deciding what to wear with your pink shoes is the specific shade you’re pairing. Pink on pink is the easiest color combination to go for. As long as you wear another item that has the same shade as your pink shoes, you’ll be good to go.

Like most colors, neutrals match well with pink. A safe rule to follow when deciding what to wear with pink shoes is to go for light on light, bright on dark, and bright on bright. This means light pink shoes with whites and pastels, or hot pink shoes paired with either bright colors or black.

Can I use custom orthotics with KURU shoes?

Due to the anatomical shape of the KURUSOLE, custom orthotics with a rounded heel fit best inside our shoes. If the underside of the custom orthotic (the part that sits on the footbed) is squared off, then it may not fit into our deep heel cup—which is rounded like your foot.

That said, many of our customers tell us the KURUSOLE technology offers better support and stability than they expected, and that they don't need to wear their custom orthotics with KURU shoes.

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.

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.
