If you or a loved one experiences diabetes, you will—at some point—experience foot pain or discomfort brought on by complications from diabetes.

Achilles Tendonitis
If you feel an ache at the back of your leg or just above your heel, especially after you’ve been active, you may have Achilles tendonitis. Your Achilles tendon runs down the rear of your leg to connect your calf muscles to your heel bone.
Ankle Pain
Ankles are amazing. They allow your feet to move up and down and side to side, and help you keep your balance so you can stand, run, and jump.
There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, which can have a variety of causes and sources as well as different courses of treatments. Arthritis is an umbrella term that refers to pain and other issues within your joints.

The pain, stiffness and mental fog from fibromyalgia can make everything more difficult and your daily to do list daunting. The root causes of fibromyalgia are still difficult to diagnose, which also means direct treatments for fibromyalgia pain are few and far between.
Flat Feet
We’ve all heard how vital arch support can be for high arches—but what happens when our arch is a little closer to the floor? We believe a low or flat arch needs just as much love!
Foot Pain
You’ve got a life to lead—you don’t need foot pain slowing you down. Whether you’re headed to your day job, chasing kiddos through the house, walking your dog, or hiking the foothills, you need footwear that not only can keep up, it can relieve pain.
Hammer Toes
You probably suffer from frequent foot pain and other related problems like bunions and corns if you have hammer toes or mallet toes. But here’s good news: you can beat these conditions and look fabulous while doing it—all thanks to KURUs’ collection of stylish shoes that are specially designed for people with hammer toes.
Heel Spurs
If you have heel pain, you know how much it can hold you back. Heel spurs often present alongside heel pain, so you may be wondering how to find the best shoes for a bone spur on your heel. While a growth of extra bone on your heel sounds like it would be painful, the truth is that the spur itself is rarely the cause of the pain.
High Arches
Let’s tell a familiar tale. You’re about to try on the 5th pair of shoes that have claimed to be high arch shoes. You are cautiously optimistic. But as soon as you stand up, you find that these “good shoes for high arches” don’t even scratch the surface—of your sole. our poor arch stays suspended in the air while the balls and heels of your feet are as cushioned as can be.
Hip Pain
Anyone with hip pain can attest to the challenge of finding comfortable yet fashionable shoes. Stilettos and high heels continue to be popular women’s shoe options, while stiff sneakers and low-heel boots are the height of fashion for men’s shoes.
Knee Pain
Knees are a pretty incredible joint. The knee is the largest joint in the human body and takes huge forces of impact on a daily basis. We need our knees for all types of movement, from sitting and standing to walking and running.
Leg Pain
Leg pain can have a wide variety of causes, so the best shoes for leg pain will depend on what is causing your pain. Your legs support you when you stand and carry you when you walk, run, jump or dance—and that repetitive stress and trauma can cause injuries that lead to pain. Leg pain may also be caused by a medical condition or chronic illness.
Our feet absorb a lot of impact on a daily basis. In fact, our feet can withstand 2–6 times our body weight from simply walking. It’s no wonder the balls of our feet can start to hurt!
Morton’s Neuroma
If you have Morton’s neuroma, you know all about that tingling, pebble-in-your shoe feel. The last thing you need is a shoe making it worse.

Three Layers of Support

At KURU, we pride ourselves on our unique approach to shoe design. We believe that shoes should be shaped to fit the natural contours of your feet, which is why we create every pair in three distinct support layers, not just an insole.

Our revolutionary ergonomic design starts with a curved footbed and adds unparalleled triple-layer support that includes shock-absorbing KURUCLOUD, heel-cupping KURUSOLE, and arch-supporting ULTIMATE INSOLES. The result? Shoes that are so comfortable you’ll stop thinking about your feet.

LOVE my shoes! As a senior adult woman, I was dismayed when I was unable do walk due to heel pain. Found Kuru shoes after an online search and decided to try them. Am I glad I did!! They are light yet sturdy…functional yet nice-looking…and best of all, the unique Kuru heel support works so very well for a hurting heel! The heel pain is slowly improving…my Kuru shoes have definitely assisted in recovering and helping support my foot as I go through the day and also slowly build up a walking routine! I usually wear ab7.5 in women’s shoes, 8 in athletic shoes. Ordered an 8 and it fit perfectly! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you, good Kuru people!!

I always purchase Kinetics! Being a senior I no longer skid. Prior to purchasing Kintics I could not find a comfortable pair of shoes that give me arch support and no pronating.


I am a senior citizen who values staying in shape; it is an important aspect of good health. Plantar Fasciitis was keeping me from an active workout; soreness across the ball of my foot complicated by heel discomfort. And, while ice and stretching helps I needed a shoe that would ‘protect and support’ my foot enabling me to achieve a high level of activity. My KURU Quantum’s came to my rescue providing the structure I need and the comfort I desire. The gym is a pleasure again!
