Win-It Wednesday: Comfortable Kuru Footwear!

by Tara Kuczykowski on April 21, 2010 · 455 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!

If you've been searching for some super comfy casual shoes, then you may want to check out Kuru Footwear. They claim to manufacture the world's most anatomical active footwear.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to test out the product for myself due to sensitivity issues I experience with the scarring from my foot surgery, but I enlisted my mom to help out so I could still give some information on how they perform when put to the test. She's been testing them for about a week now and has proclaimed that they are definitely among the most comfortable shoes she's owned. She loved the fact that they're very supportive, something she's been hard-pressed to find in a shoe since she has high arches and a narrow foot.

Kuru Footwear features:

  • Custom Molding Sockliner - exclusive foam custom molds to your foot
  • PORON® Cushioning - premium PORON® cushioning pods in heel and forefoot absorb and return energy
  • Orthotic HeelKradl™ – breakthrough orthotic molded into the shoe, dynamically cups your heel, automatically keeping your fat pad where nature intended, under the heel bone
  • Reinforced Arch Support - ergonomically correct arch improves support
  • Performance Foam KuruSole™ - high-performance EVA midsole with flexible forefoot gives a healthy, flexible barefoot feel

Plus Kuru offers 100% Free Exchanges, so there's no risk trying these shoes!

One lucky Deal Seeking Mom reader will win their choice of either Draft, Slipstream or Rapid Kuru Footwear shoes.

To enter, visit Kuru Footwear and tell what your favorite style and color of Kuru shoes.

I like the Chicane - Womens - Java/Capri. I have had a bone taken out of each of my feet- the tibial sesamoid and I have plantar fasciitis and require orthotics. I am always on the lookout for comfy shoes!

I love the Draft in Black. Thank you for the information, always looking for a comfortable pair of shoes. :)

22 Alison H. April 22, 2010 at 5:33 pm

I really like the women's Chicane in Java/Capri. I have fibromyalgia (widespread chronic pain), and lately I feel like I've been spending every minute of my free time researching comfortable shoes on the internet because they are so hard to find. I've been wearing the same pair of shoes every day for almost two years now, because I can't find anything else! I know there are certainly people who are equally or more deserving, but winning this would be such a huge blessing. Thanks for giving all of us the opportunity!

Oh, and I am already an email subscriber!

24 Amanda Y. April 22, 2010 at 5:41 pm

Even though the Slipstream looks kind of dorky, they look comfortable and that's what I'm all about--I'd love to try them!

25 Alison H. April 22, 2010 at 5:44 pm

Amanda, I completely agree! I will take comfortable and dorky over painful and cute any day. Besides, how many people are really going to be looking at my feet? (I never notice people's shoes, personally, but I'm also terribly unobservant so that could be why.)

26 Amanda Y. April 22, 2010 at 5:41 pm

27 Alison H. April 22, 2010 at 5:42 pm

I feel like I should apologize for leaving three comments in a row, even if I am following the rules. Anyway, I just became a fan of Kuru on Facebook! And thanks again for offering this giveaway.

I already subscribe to the e mail newsletters.

I think the men's slipstream look like just the perfect style for my middle son. Middle kids need a little special attention, no matter that they are now 27 years old, they need to know they are thought of lovingly!

51 Beverly April 22, 2010 at 6:45 pm

I'm an email subscriber. I live the Chicane in Chocolate. It's multifunctional and will hopefully help my heel spur.
