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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I expected! Now, these shoes you will definitely want to go at least 1/2 - a full size up, they are tight when you first wear them. I'm glad I went 1/2 a size up otherwise they would not have fit. My first day they were mildly uncomfortable because they were indeed tight. BUT after the first day they've become easier to put on since of course they've stretched out. I don't really have time to "break in" new shoes, so I've been pleasantly surprised that despite having these for maybe a week, they already feel great! These are honestly the comfiest shoes I've ever worn. Perfect for an active standing/walking job like I currently have!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good arch support but back of shoes rubs I love everything about this shoes except that the back is too high for me and it rubs against the back of my ankle. It leaves some red marks almost to a blister. I tried wearing socks to no avail. I ordered the dusty lilac and the color is beautiful but I'm returning this shoes because of the reason above. I wish they carry the same color for Lucy. I have plantar fasciitis and a heel spur. I've been using KURU shoes for awhile and it really helps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not a replacement for Lida :( I really wanted another Lida, but was informed they are no longer making them. It was suggested that the Ellie has the same fit as the Lida, so I gave it a try. The Lida was leather, Ellie is not. The Lida tied, the Ellie has a very wide elastic over the top of the foot. That elastic was too tight over my feet so was hard to get on, and not being adjustable (as a tie would be) it was also uncomfortable and forced the material under the elastic toward the toe to create a bulge. I believe the problem is that I have a high instep (?) and shoes that can't be adjusted with buckles or ties don't always work for me. Will keep checking for something that isn't athletic-looking to replace the Lida for me. I'm still a Kuru person and have gotten rid of all other brands of shoes (they hurt my feet and knees).

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Rubs on back of foot (achilles) I loved these shoes the minute I put them on, and then within minutes, the back started rubbing painfully on the lower part of my achilles...I decided since I loved my other Kurus, these would break in, but they did not. I tried wearing them with socks, but then they felt too tight. So, I wore them for a few days, and gave up. Even though there is no wear on bottom, I will not be able to return them due to Kuru's policy. Bummed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant Relief I have had foot problems my entire life. I had tried everything but it has gotten to a point where even walking around the grocery store is an inconvenience. If I did anything that would keep me on my feet for even half a day my feet would hurt to the touch for the next week. I researched shoes and kuru kept coming up. I bought a pair of Ellies and my feet felt an instant relief from just putting them on. The arch seams to put pressure in just the right spot to give my heal relief. I did order a half size up from reading reviews people seamed to say they ran a lil small and they fit perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable fit right out of the box! I have flat flexible feet and need cushion with support. I can describe these shoes in 3 words, "I love them". No break-in period needed. I can even wear these shoes without my prescribed orthotics. Lots of cushion. Lots of compliments on the style.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Too high of an Arch for Mr I wanted these to work for me but the arch is just too high and my foot sort of rolled to the side and caused pain I kept trying to get used to them but I couldn’t. I could not return them because it had been 45 days and then I looked at the shoe and it had two new insoles on top of each other and of different kinds, not sure if this is intentional but I took the rubbery one out and they seem to feel better 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!
