Comfortable Shoe Company, Kuru Footwear, Encourages Youth and Families to Be More Active with Outdoor Trail Shoes

September 29, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Kuru Footwear, a Utah-based custom shoe manufacturer for active lifestyles, is encouraging youth and teens to use the company's line of comfortable shoes to be more active. Recent studies at UCSD found significant decreases in the activity levels of teenagers after puberty, which can be a contributing factor to childhood and teen obesity.

The study conducted by Dr. Philip Nader gives interesting insight into the average activity level of today's teen population. Average teen activity has recently dropped below the recommended 60 minutes a day for both boys and girls of post-pubescent ages. This trend is disconcerting to both parents and teachers who are seeing more and more teens and young adults suffer from problems associated with obesity. Healthy eating and diet habits can help, but they don't make up for lost exercise time.

Food and diet are not enough to curb the slowly growing obesity epidemic. Thankfully, Kuru Footwear provides a patent pending product which encourages youth and families to spend more time exercising in the outdoors. Kuru's patent pending outdoor trail shoes are designed to protect against the possibility of plantar fasciitis and other foot and ankle ailments by providing a comfortable heal-pocket sole.

Developed by pain, foot and ankle experts, Kuru's product can provide the needed support and help for both outdoor enthusiasts and families looking to encourage their teens to be more active and get out of the house. Simply put, Kuru Footwear provides the needed support for nearly any outdoor environment.
