Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of compliments! I bought the white/black Ellie shoe about 1 1/2 years ago and they are still looking and wearing wonderful. My feet love these shoes. My plantar fasciitis is very comfortable in these plus I have received so many compliments on how classy they look! They are wearable like a tennis shoe but are much dressier to look at. I have even removed the insoles and thrown them in a delicate setting in my washing machine. I let them air dry, replace the insoles and away I go! I have been very pleased with the quality and durability of this shoe. I own 5 other Kuru shoes and will be getting some more in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally a Slip On That I Can Wear I recently bought the Ellie slip on shoe and I can finally say that I have been able to buy a slip on shoes from this company that fits. I have complained that this company, like so many others, does not carry small sizes. But this Ellie I can wear because the size 6 does fit like a 5 and a half. It's comfortable, looks really nice, and provides good support for my feet. Now I only wish there were more shoes in the 5 to 5.5 range.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfy but soles wear out fast I've had these shoes for about a year. They provide the arch support I need and are easy to get on & off. (Given some back problems, the time it takes for me to bend down & lace shoe can cause pain for me.) But the sole design needs much improvement. Compared to my other Kuru shoes, they don't provide as much traction and are wearing out much faster.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute shoe I loved the looks of these shoes and wanted them to work so badly. They were too tight for my high instep. I wear wide width shoes in athletic shoes, but never buy wide in other styles. They were just too tight and made my foot numb.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best comfort yet Because the reviews indicated that Ellie runs small, I ordered both a size 10.5 and an 11 in different colors, thinking that I would exchange the one that didn't fit. I normally wear size 10.5; size 11 fits perfectly and my feet were more comfortable than they'd been in months on the first day I wore these shoes to work. The extra snugness of 10.5, however, proved surprisingly therapeutic for my particular condition. When my posterior tibialitis flares up, the mild compression really helps, even though my toes are nearly to the end of the shoe. I kept both pairs of shoes, but I suspect that I will be ordering the larger size in other colors for work, and just wear the smaller pair as needed for recovery.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Worth It Am willing to spend money on shoes if they are comfortable, but these made my foot pain much worse. When I wrote to customer service they advised me to take out the insoles (walking around in shoes with no insoles is not exactly nice, but I tried, it did nothing to help). I wish these were the solution, but no such luck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shredded the tops of my feet Very disappointed. The band across the top doesn’t appear to be adjustable, and the shoes shredded the top of my feet. I’ve never had a pair of shoes that fit this way. Other shoes I’ve gotten from Kuru have been great. So weird to have shoes that are so constrictive across the top! Too late for a return, guess it is just an expensive lesson for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No break-in period! Bought the Ellie in black and comfortable from the start. I have gotten so many compliments on the style and nobody would ever say they are an orthotic shoe. Relieved my plantar fasciitis and plan on buying another pair in the magenta. Thanks!

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!
