Okay, it's not often that I get so excited about something as simple and mundane as shoes. Personally, I am not usually very picky about my shoes; as long as they work for whatever use I need-walking, playing sports, etc. My attitude towards sneakers was pretty laid back, until I put on my first ever pair of Kuru Shoes!
I chose the Chicane Leather Shoes in Riveter Black for my review. They shipped very soon after placing my order, and within just a few days, I was tying the laces on my new sneakers. Kuru recommends that you wear the shoes inside for a few hours before ever taking them outside-that way if they don't fit properly, you can exchange them for free. As soon as I slipped my feet into the Chicane sneakers, I knew I had found the perfect pair. I followed the recommendation, but the shoe sizing guide on their website was great, and allowed me to order the right size.
So the next day, I wore these over the gym to play racquetball. I was amazed at how comfortable they were, during this active sport that requires some serious pounding on your feet. The instep actually follows the curve of your foot, which means that it actually fits your feet! I was amazed to learn that Kuru Shoes actually have a memory-foam-type design, in that the shoe literally molds to your foot shape.
I seriously recommend checking out Kuru Footwear today. The shoes may be a little higher than what you're used to paying, but the comfort and durability is well worth it. In the end, you're probably actually saving money!!
