STRIDE Women's Slip-on Sneaker

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
