STRIDE - Women's NOVAKNIT Slip-On Shoe


You’ve had many firsts. Your first friend. Your first job. Your first love. The STRIDE is our first shoe featuring our all-new NOVAKNIT.

What makes NOVAKNIT so special? Imagine a one-piece, seamless upper that pairs the coziness of your favorite socks with the proven comfort of KURUSOLE hugging your heels.

NOVAKNIT's unique knitting process and one-layer construction make hot spots a thing of the past.

Carefully placed stretch zones give you a perfect fit. And a soft, airy design feels great, even when barefoot. This means the STRIDE fits even the most finicky of feet—wide feet, bunions, hammertoes, high insteps and more.

You’ll be amazed at how flexible the STRIDE feels. Plus, enjoy the confidence of a secure fit for long days on your feet thanks to the unique detail of the knitted ribbing reinforcements.

Even better, NOVAKNIT’s eco-conscious uppers eliminate almost all waste in the upper manufacturing process.

Something with this much airy flexibility and sock-like comfort is more than a shoe—it’s a KURU

Relentless Innovation for Magic in Every Step
Kurufootwear technology
Imagine a shoe that reduces impact by cupping the natural fat pad in your heels. Unlike anything else, KURUSOLE combines the proven benefits of orthotics with our patented flexing action to dynamically hug your heels. This keeps your feet healthier so your body feels younger.
Give it a few weeks and your new KURU shoes will fit like a glove. Our patent-pending ULTIMATE INSOLES use space-age foams that harness your body heat to custom mold to your feet. This promises superior arch support and forefoot cushioning that will transform your life.
Imagine a bouncy, energizing ride with every step. Using the same advanced polymers found in high-end running shoes, our KURUCLOUD midsole foam delivers unparalleled cushioning while enhancing the cupping motion of KURUSOLE. Setting the standard for a happier life.
A shoe that raises the bar this much is more than a shoe—it's a KURU
