Do you remember my review of Kuru shoes? Since 2009, I’ve packed these lightweight shoes in my suitcase whenever a trip includes hiking or outdoor adventure. In honor of My Itchy Travel Feet’s 5 year anniversary, Kuru is offering a pair of shoes to one of our lucky readers. This is going to be fun because this is our very first Pinterest giveaway. That’s right, you’ll need to pin to win Kuru shoes.

http://pinterest.com/wyosignlady/traveling-in-my-kurus/ I of course love pinning… and this gives me extra reason!!! THANK YOU — for posting this, as I’m pretty sure I’ve got plantar fasciitis and never knew it — and cannot wait to get some of these shoes!! (Yes – I have picked out the ones I’m getting IF I don’t win this!!!) ;) Going to get some for work (10-14 hour days standing on hard tile at the hotel desk…) and another pair for my travels!!!
