Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great, but.... Run small and don't breathe. These are comfortable, once you wear them a bit. I sized up from a 9.5 to 10 b/c they don't run in wide. The 10 leaves no room for socks outside of close fitting compression socks. They're more comfortable to wear with no socks... that is until your feet start boiling and sweating. These shoes DO. NOT. BREATHE. It'd be great if there were an option for shoes that do, especially if the main pictures listed on the website are of people wearing them with no socks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plantar fasciitis relief Comfy, slip on walking shoe, for my wife (4th pair). Only issue was that on 2 previous pairs, the black tread on the sole began to separate from the shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As Advertised Hands down, the most comfortable shoes I own. They are perfect for travel, walking and just daily running around. My feet always feel good when I wear them. For the most part these are true to size although a bit snug if I am wearing thicker socks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect travel shoe I need shoes with good arch support and a soft stretchy toe box as I am wide across my toes. I wanted one I could travel with, walking for miles during the day and also not looking like tennis shoes at night. I found Kuru on line and took a chance in the black. So glad I did. It is plenty wide for my toes, simple lines, soft material and I love the comfort. It does have a high arch support, which at first took some getting used to. Now I never notice it but my feet have never hurt. I do tend to wear them with a very thin sock or black knee high stockings with my black pants or jeans at night. I love that they can look casual or dressy. I did buy them a 1/2 size larger which was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Shoe!! I wish I could give the "Ellie" more stars. I am recently home from a trip to Ireland. My pair of Ellies was my-go-to-it shoe for the WHOLE trip! My pair of Ellies made it through city walking, walking & more walking, country walking -- lots! I lived in my Ellies for three weeks. Amazing -- no blisters, no sore feet, no plantar fasciitis pain. I am truly over the moon!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ordering 2nd pair of these! I bought these 1 year ago because my plantar fasciitis was so bad! Had tried other shoes, they didn't really work. These did! I've worn them a LOT since then, except for snow.... they're finally getting worn on the bottom, so I'm ordering another pair! Will now use the old ones for a spare pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Travel Shoe Ever! With 2-3 months before our big trip to Italy, my plantar fasciitis was really acting up - I could barely walk at the beginning and end of the day (I'm a special education teacher). I researched different shoes and decided to try a go with the Ellie. We just got back from 2 weeks in Italy and this shoe was so cute and comfy throughout the trip (got LOTS of compliments on my Dusty Lilacs)! My feet didn't give me any problems throughout the trip - - AMAZING! They fit true to size for me. No pinching, no rubbing, just sheer comfort! My feet feel better, no more hobbling in the morning when I wake up or in the evening when I go to bed. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite shoe Really great support and comfort. I wore these traveling and on a pretty active road trip. They held up and provided all-day relief. My heels were not in pain overnight and even when I woke up in the morning. I couldn't be happier. They are a little snug so go up about a 1/2 size and don't go without socks if your feet have a tendency to swell in the heat. The top lip of the shoe can feel tight in those instances. These are my favorite shoes right now.

Can you run and these kind of shoes and also I have a bunion because I am a runner and jump rope I do Boot Camp six days a week

Asked by: Eva 123
Great question! The ELLIE shoe style is considered a casual style. It is great for walking and everyday use but we do not recommend running in them as they are considered a casual style. They also have a snug fit so they may not be the best if you have bunions. I hope this information was helpful!

I have bunions and see that Ellie's run narrow.  I am normally an 8 1/2 medium but like a shoe with a roomier toe box.  Should I get the wide width or is there another Kuru shoe that would be better?

Asked by: Leslie16
Thank you for contacting KURU Footwear! Unfortunately, the ELLIE shoe style is not available in a wide width so if you want a roomier toe box in the ELLIE, we highly suggest ordering a half size up as an alternative. If you want a different style with a roomier toe box, we recommend checking out the QUANTUM shoe style. I hope this information was helpful!

I have purchased the Quantum, size 7. Would I order the same in the Ellie? I'm also wanting to purchase the Ellie for a vacation where I will be doing lots of walking and airline travel. Worried about sizing with swelling from air travel also

Asked by: craftyginger
Great question! Both the ELLIE and the QUANTUM run true to size so we recommend ordering the same size 7 in the ELLIE shoe style. The ELLIE will feel a little snug compared to the QUANTUM but they still run true to size. I hope this information was helpful!

I would love to buy these shoes. They are so stylish. Alas, I wear a size 12. Would you consider extending the sizes?

Asked by: Swg
Sorry, our ELLIE is only available in women sizes 6-11. We'll forward your feedback to our Product Development Team.

A these good for pronation?

Asked by: nj0384638
Great question! The ELLIE shoe style is not specifically made for pronation but since the supportive technology in our shoes helps place your foot in the best anatomical position, it would help with pronation! A great alternative for pronation would be one of our hiking/outdoor shoes like the CHICANE or the QUEST boot since they have great padding around the heel and ankle area. I hope this information was helpful!

I'm on my feet for 12 hours a day on concrete is there any shoes you recommend?

Asked by: Penny's
Thanks for reaching out to KURU Footwear! All of our KURU shoes, no matter which style you choose, begin with anatomically correct arch support. (For those with high arches, this might not seem like enough at first, whereas those with low arches may feel like it's too much.) However, over time, they use your body heat to mold to your exact foot shape, so you get a custom fit, and exactly the support you need, no matter what kind of arch you have. This perfect arch support is the absolute best way to prevent and relieve Plantar Fasciitis pain. In fact, if you use our "plantar fasciitis" filter on the left-hand side of our main page, ALL our shoes will show under that topic. We suggest you wear your shoes 2-3 hours per day for 2-3 weeks to give your foot time to adjust to the shoes and your shoes to mold to your feet. So in summary, all of our shoes are great for Plantar Fasciitis, heel pain, and have excellent arch support! So rest assured whatever style you pick, it will feel like you are walking on clouds.

The white sole seems to collect black marks. What is the best way to clean them?
Asked by: Anonymous
Great question! The best way to clean the sole on the ELLIE shoes would be to hand wash them with a wet cloth or brush. We do not recommend putting them in a washing machine as it can damage the materials. We offer a cleaning kit that you can use to clean your shoes! You can check it out by using the following link:

How long do these normally last? Are they very durable?
Asked by: Erika
We appreciate your interest! Our shoes are very durable. The time they last can vary depending on the activities you do and the amount of time you wear them but for the most part our shoes last anywhere from 6 months to a full year on average! I hope this information was helpful!
