Wearing kyBoot Swiss air-cushion shoes means you can walk on a soft, springy, moss-like surface at all times. Before, after or during a hike , you often have to walk across several kilometres of tarmac. Hiking in kyBoot shoes is far more fun because the soft, elastic air-cushion soles absorb the impact of your foot on the rocky ground.
kyBoot shoes allow you to enjoy exercise again. kyBoot shoes noticeably relieve the strain on your joints, activate the vein pump, strengthen your deep inner muscles and support the cardiovascular system. Older people in particular can improve mobility and balanceby walking in kyBoot shoes, which is an effective way of reducing the risk of falls.
Is it possible to go hiking without any pain despite knee, hip and back problems?
You’re probably familiar with this problem, too: Even after short hikes, your feet burn, your knees hurt and you struggle to maintain your balance. The mere thought of walking downhill makes us weak at the knees. The good news for everyone suffering from these problems is that we have a solution for you! It’s simple: we start with your feet. In any case, it is crucial to wear the right type of shoes when hiking.
Should hiking boots provide support?
No. Scientific findings show that the feet – not the shoes – should provide the support. The soft, elastic sole of the kyBoot shoe offers your feet greater freedom of movement and thereby trains the muscles.
Isn’t it a bit dangerous to walk on the soft-elastic soles in the countryside?
No, quite the opposite. You’ll be surprised by how much safer you feel in kyBoot shoes than in supportive hiking boots once you get used to them! kyBoot hiking shoes are suitable for light outdoor activities as well as all simple hiking routes.

Important for newcomers
New wearers of kyBoot shoes should know that it is important to take a pair of ‘normal’ shoes with them in their rucksack when they go on longer hikes. It takes some time to get used to the soft, springy sole. The air-cushion sole activates different muscles, which can result in noticeable reactions being felt in the body.
On October 1993 I did a forced landing near an air field at the northern part of Israel. On take off, and few minutes air born I've noticed a sudden engine cut, did a rapidly forced landing in a very bad field for landing, plenty of boulders and rocks. In these circumstances you can choose the right place - you take what you find. Fortunately the passenger didn't suffer any damage,but I broke badly my right ankle.
It took me one year and a half of crutches and 3 orthopaedic operations to walk again. Until now I couldn't find suitable shoes though I tryed all possible firms and styles. I could walk, but always with pain and uncomfortable sensation. Two months ago a friend from Israel,and shoed me his shoes, which was of your production. I tried them and felt good.
I use those shoes for about one month and a half now,and for the first time after the incident I can walk again without lame ,pain or inconvenience and for relatively long courses even up the hill side.
So, in short ,I am very happy now with your shoes and will buy some others for the next winter.
I hesitated for a long time before buying a pair of air-cushioned kyBoot shoes. I usually wear elegant leather shoes. The gentle way you walk in the kyBoot is amazing. I even take three and four-hour hikes and don’t feel any pain in my back, hips, knees or feet. They are fantastic shoes. Congratulations.
