We have first-hand experience!
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 kybun 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 fill out the form and we will provide you with more information or details of how to test the shoes.
I’ve been wearing kybun shoes for a couple of weeks now and I am so impressed by these shoes! I wear them both indoors and outdoors. Seven years after my amputation, I have finally found a shoe that comes close to restoring the quality of life I had before. They are lightweight shoes and you don’t feel them on your feet, so it’s like walking barefoot. My back is more relaxed and is no longer painful. The anti-slip sole also makes them really secure. Sure, the price isn’t exactly enticing. But what’s important is that the shoe makes a positive difference, so it’s worth spending a bit more.
Fantastic stuff! How did I find out about the kybun shoe? 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 kybun 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 kybun shoes wholeheartedly. Thank you so much, Jürgen! Your tremendous commitment will ensure that lots more people will find out about the kybun shoe and will hopefully be inspired to try wearing these shoes.
I can now walk without any pain. I used to always feel a pressure in the prosthesis and was actually always in pain when walking. The pain is now completely gone, and I feel wonderful wearing the prosthesis.
Hello Jürgen! As promised, tomorrow I will reluctantly send the test shoes back to you. Although I am still not an active walker, even on my short walks I noticed a huge difference between my shoes and the kybun shoes. The way I stand is very different and the shoes even make it easier to stand up. I’m impressed! Honestly, I swear on kybun shoe. I would never have believed the shoes could make walking feel so secure and comfortable. Recently, my kybun shoes got wet and I had to switch to normal shoes. Nothing seemed to work anymore and I was walking like a stiff puppet. I never want that to happen again!
Wearing the kybun shoe makes it feel a lot more natural to walk with a prosthetic. It’s gentler on my back, too. It’s especially easier for me to walk down stairs when I’m wearing the kybun shoe. Mr Zeller provided us with fantastic advice – he did an excellent job of answering all of my questions. I would definitely order these shoes again, anytime.
