The soft, springy sole absorbs impact on all surfaces and enables the prosthetic foot to gently use the rollover motion. This saves a lot of energy and relieves stress on the residual limb. As a result, the hips and back are also relieved, which often leads to increased quality of life.

We would like to introduce you to Mr Jürgen Zeller. Mr Zeller has had both of his legs amputated. When he first tried on a pair of kyBoot shoes, he knew right away that he wanted to share this feeling with other people in a similar condition. Since then, he has been passionate about ensuring that other people with prosthetic feet don’t suffer from wearing poor footwear. He wanted to draw attention to how important it is for people with only one foot – or no feet at all – to improve their gait with the perfect shoe in order to enjoy a better quality of life, just as it is for those without prostheses.
Mr Zeller completed the basic medical training course at kybun AG in 2015. Since mid-2015, he has been working as a freelance medical consultant and expert for amputees and people who wear prostheses in southern Germany.
Please visit Mr Zeller’s webpage Prothesen-Tuning if you have any questions, comments or stories to share about prostheses and amputation.
Please fill out the form and we will provide you with more information or details of how to test the shoes.
I am 71 and my left leg was recently amputated above the knee. I stumbled upon kyBoot online and I learned all about it from Mr Zeller over the phone. Two days later, a pair of kyBoot test shoes was delivered to my house. I was allowed to try them at home for two days and then keep them or send them back. After wearing and walking in the kyBoot shoes for three minutes, I picked up the phone and bought the shoes! I have never had shoes that are so soft, fit so well and look so fashionable! I have now been wearing them all day every day for 14 days and they are great. I now walk a lot more than I did in my old shoes! Five days ago, my wife ordered some kyBoot sandals from Mr Zeller and she only takes them off when she gets into bed! She is absolutely thrilled with the sandals. I would readily recommend kyBoot shoes! Thank you so much, Mr Zeller!
Fantastic stuff! How did I find out about kyBoot? Jürgen posted a link to his page in our Facebook group. It made me curious. Why? My left leg is amputated above the knee and my right ankle is damaged, so I am regularly in pain. I wondered whether these shoes could mitigate the problem. We started an e-mail conversation and Jürgen immediately offered to provide me with a pair of test shoes. After 14 days, I was won over and I ordered a pair. What was it that convinced me? It’s like walking on a cloud. In my Salo shoes, every stride feels stiff like a goose step. By contrast, the kyBoot shoes soften my steps and the foot rollover is very comfortable. They also make it easier to climb stairs step-over-step. My footsteps are quieter – now I can sneak up on people! Walking on pavements also feels much better. So those are my first impressions after a couple of weeks of wearing the shoes. Sure, they aren’t exactly cheap. But the shoes are making a positive difference. Which is why I am convinced that buying them was a good decision. I would recommend these kyBoot shoes wholeheartedly. Thank you so much, Jürgen! Your tremendous commitment will ensure that lots more people will find out
about kyBoot and will hopefully be inspired to try wearing these shoes.
I too discovered the awesome kyBoot shoes – after years of searching for good shoes. I found them through Mr Jürgen Zeller. In 2009 I underwent a knee disarticulation on my right leg. Since then, I’ve been doing lots of sports, and I have to say that the kyBoot has been a real ASSET to my (Genium) prosthesis!
Shoes are very important. They are an important part of the prosthesis. As I said, I could never find the right shoe for me during all the time I spent wearing the prosthesis. The kyBoot is simply the perfect shoe for me. I first learnt about the kyBoot when I got onto the bus at a different bus stop. I saw a kyBoot shop right behind me. There was an intriguing exhibition going on, where a film was being shown. I went to the shop the next day and asked if the kyBoot could also be something for people who wear prostheses. Mr Meier was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave me all the information I needed. He said he didn’t have any experience with people who wear prostheses, but that I could try on a pair of the kyBoot shoes if I wanted to. I took him up on the offer and since then, I have been impressed with the shoe each and every day.
I actually discovered the kyBoot completely by chance. I tried on a pair and found that I could actually walk very well in them. Now it is simply my shoe. I can really step on each heel and roll over my foot to the toes. The shoe helps me get a firmer footing and compensates for the movements within my stump. It simply feels great to walk and the main advantage by far is that I don’t stumble anymore. This was always a problem I experienced when I was wearing other shoes. I would often trip over my toes and stumble when walking on uneven streets.
