So, I received my first pair of kuru's about 2 weeks ago. I was EXTREMELY skeptical about their claims. I have plantar fasciitis, flat feet and heel spurs. At the end of every day, my feet/heels, right knee and low back are screaming! When I first put them on, I thought for sure I would have to send them back. They have quite a bit of arch support and it was pretty awkward feeling. I decided to wear them for a few hours a day for a couple of days, but got sidetracked and ended up wearing them all day. When I realized what I'd done, I also realized that my feet did hurt but, only a fraction of how bad they usually are at the end of the day. The real shock was, my knee did not hurt at all and my low back was about 90% better! It had only been a day and a half!!!
So the real test! I bought a special pair of shoes to wear to a dissection class I just took because they impressed the fact that the odors can cling to our clothes and it was wise to bring clothes you could just toss after class. By lunch time, my feet, back and knees were so painful I wanted to cry. I was willing to sacrifice my now cherished Kuru's for my comfort. So, I changed into them and by the end of the day was pain free! As luck would have it, the ventilation in the lab was so good I didn't have to throw them out!
As if that isn't enough to prove to me that these shoes ROCK, I went on a small 1 hour hike. Up and down hills and lots of uneven surfaces. Usually my calves would seize up and the feet, knee and back would kill me...nothing! NO PAIN!!! I am sold! I am already shopping for my next pair(s)
This is my review! I highly recommend these shoes to anybody with foot/leg/back pain!
