Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Most Worn Sneaker I was attracted to the clean lines of the Atom in black and decided to grab a pair days when I want a less obtrusive sneaker. I love the knit fabric/plush collar around the ankle. Made the shoe comfortable from day one. Ordered my normal size 8 and was very pleased with the fit of the shoe. The insoles are firmer than the Quantum style, however find both styles comfortable to stand all day in at work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy and Cute, my favorites These shoes are my new favorites to work out in! Super comfortable and molds to my arches and foot shape. Plus, theyre cute enough to wear everywhere honestly- I wear around town or out with friends sometimes. True to size- they fit great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love at first ... step? I recently purchased the KURU Atom and received them yesterday. Today is my first day wearing them and ... WOW! The fit is unbelievable. They are already molding to my foot shape and preventing me from overpronating. I never thought adequate heel support might solve my ankle/knee discomforts; though it is too early to tell, I am confident the Atom is doing just that. I work a job that requires frequency sitting/standing/walking, and so far my legs, ankles, and feet do not feel fatigued, heavy, and uncomfortable as they typically do towards the end of the work day. So far, I am very pleased! As a bonus, the shoes are cute - I love the color combo and style. I am already getting compliments on them. Thank you, KURU!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesomely Comfortable This is my 4th different sneaker that I've ordered from Kuru. It is so comfortable and light weight. I'm recovering from ACL reconstruction and my physical therapist recommended that I get new shoes because I've worn out the ones I wear daily (I stand all day at work). I absolutely love these shoes it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive ! Bought these for my wife who is an avid runner. Her feet / legs are particular about the shoes she runs in as she does run for a lot of miles. We are happy to report that these Kuru's beat the best running on the market right now. That really impressed my wife and I !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Kuru Shoes - I have plantar fascitis! I have purchased different types of Kuru shoes -- the Quantum, Kivi, Ellie, Aalto Chukka Boots, Atom. This is my favortie so far. I am very active. I exercise almost every day with HIIT training and a lot of dancing. I don't want my foot problems to be in the way of being fit. I was using Quantum shoes for a while and my foot pain disappeared. But then my left heal started hurting a lot. I wondered if it was true that you really have to change your shoes every 500 miles.... So I gave the Atom a try and it has been great! My left foot pain has not completely disappeared but it is not bad as long as I am wearing my Atoms. I also bought a new pair of Quantum shoes but they were not as helpful in reducing my left foot pain. I continue to workout every single day with my AToms. A extra bonus -- these shoes are gorgeous. People compliment them all the time. I bought an extra pair for when I wear them out. My recommendation for folks with foot pain is to try different types of Kuru shoes to see which works for your feet the best. Different people have different types of foot issues and one shoe may be better for other folks. But for me the ATOMS are my new favorites! Love love love them!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy the Atom or Ellie I bought both of these shoes. Great look, appropriate sizing but the toe box had a strange firmness and after checking it out, I noticed at the end of the top of the shoe it had a piece of hard plastic there. Don’t know it’s purpose but it was extremely painful when walking around in my house. They were returned and the return didn’t turn out well either. You have to “ order” an exchange and also call them when you want to return shoes and use your Guru points. The entire process is ridiculous. Sorry won’t be going to this site again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from " WOW, What a sneaker!!!" I purchased the Red Atoms about a month ago. I love to exercise and have been in search of a good, supportive and high-performance sneaker for Years!! These shoes fit the bill. The Atom fits like they were molded just for my feet. I feel confident and well supported when I work out. Plus my legs are not tired at the end of a session. Another note..., I have overpronation ( my feet tend to turn out and so do my sneakers after a while) unlike my big name sneakers, my feet do not shift outward when I walk or run in the Atom. My feet and ankles are well set and in line for correct stance. One last note, they are cool. I mean really cool and light. It's not a hot shoe. Your feet won't cry to get dry, even with socks. Well, at least mine don't. So I say again, " WOW, What a sneaker!!!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right Out of the Box I just received these and I am in love. They are very comfortable! The mesh gives a bit of give that I like and the support is Kuru perfect. I will be buying more of these as the Atom line expands in color choices. I am totally pleased with this purchase.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for gym. This is fine for the gym, but was not good for concrete or asphalt. It has a harder feel than the Kinetic or the Quantum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice I purchased the black Atom for walking; I have worn them four times now and they are becoming my favorite shoe. The shoe fit true to size for length, I could have used a narrower lace area. I just tie them very tight so they hug my instep. I would definitely buy them again in another color!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good shoe I like these. They are comfortable, really like the way the foot fits in the shoe. The black-white-gum look is pretty cool too. Great for walking or bike riding that I do. Will be really nice for summer. This is like my 6th pair now, got rid of most others. The size was spot on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable shoe with a fun casual style As someone with too many foot challenges to list, finding KURU was like a dream come true. I own a few pairs (Lucys) and purchased the ATOMS as soon as they became available as I needed a performance shoe for the gym. The ATOM works perfectly for HIIT training. I did need to finagle the laces a bit to ensure a tight fit as the toe box is nice and wide, but once I wore them a few times, they seemed to mold to my feet and were absolutely comfortable. Planning to buy another pair to wear this summer (outside of the gym) as they really are super comfy and my feet don't hurt at all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Comfortable Sole, Great Look, but didn't work I so wanted this shoes to work as they look great and the feel of the sole is great, however, I tried two sizes and it both my toes felt like they were going to break through the top of the shoe (toebox was too short) and my heels slipped out while walking. The width was generous. I have wider forefoot, narrow heel, and high arch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Passed with flying colors! I just got these for a 6 mile walk I'll be doing next month. I gave them a solid test out of the box in NYC yesterday. It was a long day, with a lot of walking. I am hyper-mobile, so have fallen arches, bad knees and ankles. I am feeling the normal ache of someone who could use more exercise, but the support in these shoes is fantastic, and I am very impressed with how stable my feet felt. They are much better than the similar Vionic sneaker (which I also have and wear for light use). I can't emphasize enough how well the heel is made, and the shoe is solid enough, without being too rigid. There is also enough support under the ball of the foot. I can only think of one thing that might deter some, and that would be that while I could comfortably get my feet in by loosening the laces, others may not, as the open area/tongue are fixed. All in all, I give them a 10 out of 10.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I was excited abou the bottom of these shoes, they seem to be well made and non-slip. However, they are way too big. I wear a 7 in other Kurus and this shoe is too wide and long, my foot slips around and you really can't tighten it. I would never wear these for running or weight training because you feet just slip and slide in them. I am very dissappointed in the construction of this shoe.Therre isn't much support as the entire shoe is mesh with just plastic sides for the laces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SO COMFORTABLE! I own several pairs of Kuru athletic shoes and I have to say, these may be my favorite. They are SO comfortable and really nice looking as well. They run true to size. I always order a 9. These are perfect. The stretchy toe box is a nice bonus while still providing great support! I think they may be the most versatile as far as fashion, too. Love them!! Thanks, Kuru! They were worth the wait!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love The Shoe I received the shoe a few days ago and have been wearing them around the house before I go out with them.They feel good and look nice.I have several other pairs of Kuru shoes and love them all.Love the new style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best shoes ever! I bought ATOM shoes because of their heel design. The heel flairs out for extra support and I have literally been looking for this kind of shoe for years! The last pair I had the shoe company went out of business and my feet have suffered ever since. I put the ATOM shoes on and *poof* I feel years younger! I will definitely be ordering more pairs and recommending these shoes to other people! Thank you, KURU!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this new style! Really comfy. I am a 71 yr old great grandma who needs to lose over 50 lbs. I work full time, and often on hard floors. My chicanes were my all the time shoes for yrs, and I replaced them with these. The sole is softer, but seems to hold up well. The bottoms are really nice for not slipping easily, and the heels are a bit wider to provide greater stability. I am very impressed with these shoes, but I warn you they make you want to start walking or working out. I have six different styles of Kuru's. My feet are bone on bone with arthritis, have plantar faciatis, bone spurs and heel spurs. Kuru shoes have kept me from foot surgery for over 3 yrs now. They cost a fraction of orthotics and are much more help to arthritic feet - in my experience. It costs you nothing to try them - they will ship free, return free, and they refund fast. I have a Kuru style for about everything - summer thru winter. I will even confess I like these Atoms so well I have worn them to church a few times now too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hugs my heel My shoes came on the day my r heel pain started. I wore these right away and held my heel in place, it felt better. It took 4 days but I’m doing very well walking now. I love the wide toe box and how light they are.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition to my Kuru collection! I just received these today. I wasn’t excited about the color choices, but I ordered anyway. These are the first Kurus that seem like a true athletic shoe. I’m tempted to go for a run! I will start wearing these to the gym. They felt a little lumpy when I first put them on but after a few hours of wear they have already formed to my foot. Perfect fit. Plenty of room in the toe box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much improved athletic shoe I own a pair of Carreras and while they helped my foot pain, they are so clunky and heavy and stiff. Definitely not what I'd consider an athletic shoe. The Atom is much more streamlined, flexible, comfortable, and so much lighter. I was a little concerned about fit because I have a fairly wide forefoot, but the toebox is plenty roomy for me and the lacing style makes it very flexible for fit. Please expand the color options to something brighter and more fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i LOVE THESE SHOES I just got them today and have been wearing them all day. My regular size fits perfectly, extremely comfortable. No rough spots, no sore spots, feels like custom made shoes. I will probably buy another pair in black.

From the pictures I cannot tell if the toe box on the Atom is as wide as some of your other models. I currently have a pair of Quantums, is the toe box as wide as that of the Quantum? Thanks.

Asked by: Nunya
Great question! Both the ATOM and the QUANTUM have a generous toe box but they will have a different last and shape. They will both give your toes enough space but they will feel a little different due to the last of the shoe. I hope this information was helpful!

Are these shoes vegan?

Asked by: Nessa
Great question! The ATOM shoe style does not include any leather and has high-quality synthetic materials and mesh. They are very close to being vegan but the glue/bonding material that our partner factory uses may include animal by-products, so we cannot officially say that they are vegan. I hope this information was helpful!

I have a narrow foot. Do your shoes run large (in length or width).

Asked by: jh
Great question! The majority of our KURU shoes including this ATOM style runs true to size. With that being said they do not run large or small, so we recommend ordering the same size you normally purchase.

I have plantar fasciitis and I wanted to know if this model is Kuru's best for this problem or do you indicate some other model?

Asked by: mstroke
Thank you for contacting KURU Footwear! We appreciate your interest! To answer your question, all of our KURU shoes have the same supportive technology built into them. We do not have a shoe that is better than the other in terms of support, the only difference would be the model/style itself. No matter which style you choose, they would be able to help with plantar fasciitis. I hope this information was helpful!
