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. Sporty hiking enthusiasts have told us how much they enjoy hiking in the kyBoot shoes. We would only dissuade you from wearing kyBoot shoes if you plan to go hiking on steeply sloping fields.

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.
So, there are now fivepeople who have bought kyBoot shoes for me. But, you see, I've just kept up with it.
Of course, one pair of shoes wasn't enough for me then. And then winter came, up here at a height of 1500 m.
Well, then I started with my first pair of winter boots. Then came walking boots. And now I've got a smart pair of new winter boots. Then, of course, I've got a pair for the summer and three for between the seasons.
I can still walk upright with support from the kyBoot. Yesterday, I was walking with my brother-in-law around the Lenzerheide mountain resort in Switzerland. We went from the Rothorn middle station to the waterfall and from there back down to Lenzerheide over many different terrains. It was an exhausting hike. I was perfectly equipped with my kyBoot hiking boot in orange. It really cushions every step. I am 72 years old, and I have had several serious accidents since 2011. That is why I am doubly grateful that you have produced such fantastic Swiss-made shoes! This is also important for me!
Stay true to your culture. I will recommend your products to everyone.
I'm planning on buying the walking boots as the shaft is slightly higher. But not so much for everyday use as for the holidays. When you really walk or hike longer distances. One reason they're so great is that you don't feel the stones. I usually walk the dogs on a natural path, and then you're happy if you don't feel every stone.
