I mentioned in one of my Disney on a Budget posts that good footwear was a priority for a day at one of the parks. You can’t walk all day with wimpy shoes, you won’t be happy! I mentioned that I found a brand of shoes (Keen) that I was extremely pleased with, several of you mentioned you loved them too, while others complained that you had tried the shoes, but didn’t think they had enough arch support. For those of you that were looking for a quality shoe with a better arch support, I think I may have found the brand for you – Kuru Footwear.
Kuru Footwear sent me a pair of Insight shoes to try out. Kuru shoes have what they call the World’s Most Anotomical Midsole for active footwear. The sole of the Kuru footwear has more of a cupping shape instead of being flat, and because of this it forms to the heel of your foot. Once I started wearing the shoes on a regular basis, I noticed that my feet didn’t feel as tired as they have in the past. You really can tell a difference in the way the sole kind of conforms to your own foot. They provide just the right amount of cushioning and support.
In my younger years I wouldn’t have even given these Kuru shoes a second glance, the price tag would have scared me away. (Their shoes run around $90). It hasn’t been until the last 4 or 5 years, that I have changed my way of thinking, when it comes to shoes. Before, I wouldn’t spend more than $15 on a pair of shoes,but I found that I would have to replace my shoes about every 4-6 months. In the past several years, I have paid a pretty penny for several pairs of my shoes. The great part is that instead of only lasting me months, they last years!! I don’t think being frugal means spending the least amount you possibly can, but instead it means getting the most bang for your buck. These shoes are definitely worth the price!
You can check out all of their styles of shoes, including the ones above. These are the Draft style, and they are the next ones on my list, I think they would be a great “everyday” shoe. They come in several different colors, and I love that you can just slip them on. I don’t know about you, but sometimes as a Mom I barely have time to tie my shoes! Slip-ons are my best friends – love them!!
Where can you get Kuru Footwear? Kuru Footwear is only available online at KuruFootwear.com. The great part is that they want you to be totally happy with your purchase. If for any reason you need to return or exchange your shoes they offer 100% FREE EXCHANGES. I love it when companies stand behind their products like that.
Kuru Footwear provided me with the shoes to review, and no other compensation was given. I have shared my honest opinion with you. Now that I have new comfortable shoes, I think another visit to a Disney theme park is in order, don’t you?
