As a practical traveler, I’m always on the hunt for shoes that look good and perform well. After all, I’m a boomer woman who’s feet have been around, which means they need the loving support of a good pair of shoes. And that’s just what I’ve found in the Aalto Chukka Boot from Kuru Footwear.
The Aalto Chukka Boot offers just the stability that I need for the rough, cobblestones surfaces experienced on European walking tours. Sure wish I had owned a pair when Alan and I traveled on our Rhine River Christmas Markets cruise. Although the boot comes in several different materials and colors, the black leather is my style choice. I can just picture a fall trip to Italy where I’m wearing black skinny jeans topped off with a black turtleneck, colorful patterned cardigan from Chico’s and Aalto Chukka Boots. No more touristy look for me!
But these boots are more than stylish looks. The KuruSOLE offers extra cushioning and non-slip soles. And the UltimateINSOLES are designed to mold to the shape of your foot, cup the heel and provides arch support that creates a healthier stride. Prefer a more casual look? The Aalto Chukka Boots also come in brown, black or burgundy suede.
More things I like:
- 45 days of free exchange on domestic orders
- Free ground shipping on domestic orders
- 6-month warranty against manufacturer defects
If you’ve been reading My Itchy Travel Feet for any length of time, then you know that I’m a fan of Kuru Footwear. Way back in 2009, I reviewed a pair of Chicane Kurus that have traveled with me all over the world. In 2015, I’m partnering with Kuru to offer a $125 Kuru Footwear gift certificate at Passports With Purpose. Stay tuned, we’ll be telling you more about our favorite travel fundraiser on Monday, November 9, 2015.
And, if you see me on a European river cruise, I may be wearing heels at night; but by day, I’ll be exploring the city streets in the Aalto Chukka Boot.
