Is it possible to raise the height of kybun shoes?

Yes, that’s possible. Three different solutions are on offer, depending on the difference between the lengths of your legs:

1. As the height of the kybun sole is dynamic, no height compensation is usually required. For test purposes, all you need to do is stand and walk in the kybun shoe. After approximately ten minutes, you will notice whether you need any compensation. Particularly when a functional pelvic obliquity is the cause, compensation is unnecessary or even counterproductive because the difference balances itself out over time as pelvic blockages are released. If in doubt, ask to rent a kybun shoe so that you are better able to feel the effect over a two week trial.

2. Difference of between 1.5 to 2 cm:
In this case, you can insert a simple raised shoe insole with an approximate thickness of between 0.5 and 1 cm into the kybun shoe. Make sure that the insole is as soft and springy as possible so as not to interfere with the effect of the kybun shoe too much. If there is no other choice, you can also use a slightly firmer insole. This alternative is cheap, however, you may find that the heel grip is no longer ideal (heel slipping). In this case, we recommend option 3.
You can purchase the raised shoe insoles directly from a kybun partner who will contact kybun AG and order them for you.

3. Difference of over 2 cm:
In this case, the kybun's sole must be professionally raised in order to achieve the same perfect ‘walking-on-air feeling’ with the maximum effect. This may slightly impair the shoe’s durability. After wearing the kybun shoe, it should be stored in a dry place. This conversion invalidates the factory warranty. Sole raising is possible for all models and the height is theoretically unlimited. The price for a raised sole depends on the height (for example, CHF 215 for a height increase of 2 cm).
To calculate the height difference, proceed as described in the video on the top right. Afterwards, you simply need to tell us the thicknesses of the boards that felt most comfortable after approximately ten minutes during measuring.

Please note: We can only guarantee the best result by taking measurements and advising you in person at kybun Tower in Roggwil, Switzerland. Every foot is unique and countless factors affecting the fit and satisfaction of the wearer need to be taken into account. Without direct contact, the uniqueness of each customer can only be catered to in a limited way.
