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.

Pros:

  • 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

Cons:

  • 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
