KURU ‘RAPID’ REVIEW:
I received for review the women’s Kuru ‘Rapid’ in black with pink trim. This style runs a half-size too small, so I asked for a size 9. The Rapid offers a relaxed slip-on fit and casual styling perfect for traveling, yard work, walking and hiking, among other activities. See below for a breakdown of the pros and cons, but the only con is they are a little bulky for my taste. But if you’re looking for a casual shoe that will make your feet feel amazing, you should forgive this point.
Features: antimicrobial, breathable, moisture-control shoe liner; anatomical sole with orthotic heel cradle; water and stain resistant soft shell upper; collapsible uppers (perfect for stashing in your pack); and rugged, durable outsole.
- Super light, collapsible for easy packing
- Waterproof and stain-resistant upper, great for outdoor activities
- Comfortable, fit perfectly from day one (no break-in time required)
- Relieves plantar fasciitis
- Bulky, not as attractive on my foot as I’d like (but more attractive than most active-casual footwear)
In addition to making really comfortable shoes that come in recycled boxes, Kuru donates to social/environmental causes. When you make a purchase on the company’s website, you can choose to register your purchase and Kuru will donate a portion of its profits to the cause of your choice. The Rapid costs US $79.97 and currently comes in two color choices. Get your own: www.KuruFootwear.com
