It is my pleasure to present my review of the Draft shoe from KURU Footwear. I had never heard of KURU and was excited when they contacted me to provide a review. I am totally a comfy shoe gal. I have picky feet and most shoes are not comfortable for me. Like most women, I will wear shoes for a night out to look stylish, but most days, I just want to be comfortable and feel supported from the ground up. Of course this starts with a great shoe.
The KURU Draft is one such shoe. I LOVE IT! There are very few shoes that feel comfortable when you first put them on. There is often a “break-in” period. These shoes felt like they molded to my feet in about 2 minutes. I wore them for the rest of the day all around the house. I love them so much, I may need a pair for indoor slippers and a pair for outdoors.
In addition to being comfortable, it is quite stylish. My shoe is like the one pictured above. It’s black with pink trim. It also comes in blue, a green/brown combo and orange. It is a slip on style with a small heal backing so your foot does not slip out.
This same shoe was featured in SKI Magazine. The editor had a great review saying, “KURU, like it’s Finnish namesake-a city so environmentally pure you can drink straight from its rivers and lakes-Utah-based Kuru believes in clean, naturally inspired living. Its line of soft-shell footwear, including the Draft clog with anatomically correct midsole, is designed with that-and apres ski comfort-in mind.”
Whether or not you ski, this shoe is great to envelope your feet in comfort from grocery shopping to running errands to simply walking around the house. Heck, maybe I’ll need to take up skiing just to explore the “apres ski” effect.
Here is the company summary of the Draft shoe:
The Draft is a supreme comfort shoe that fits like a slipper and features water shedding soft shell uppers. The perfect shoe for aprés-sport, running to the coffee shop, a quick errand, or simply lounging around the campfire. Take off your trail shoes and enjoy the comfort of the Draft shoe. (I could not agree more!)
