"I was hesitant to buy these shoes because of the price, but they are worth every penny! I am a high school teacher and am 5 months pregnant. I was wearing flats everyday to school or my cheap tennis shoes and would come home almost in tears because of how bad my knees and hips were hurting. After a week of wearing my KURUs my pain has gone away and I am no longer dreading teaching through the rest of my pregnancy. I am looking forward to buying another pair."
