Fill out our contact form if you are an amputee who wears a prosthesis and would like to get quick and thorough advice from an expert.
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.
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.
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!
I actually discovered the kybun shoe 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.
My experiences with kybun shoes have been overwhelmingly positive. Shortly after my amputation, I met Jürgen Zeller at an appointment with my orthopaedic technician. It was through Jürgen that I received my first pair of kybun shoes. My right leg was also experiencing adverse effects from the accident, so I was thrilled with the kybun shoes from the very beginning. I have tried all sorts of expensive sports shoes, but none of them have come anywhere close to equalling the kybun shoes! kybun shoes soften the heel impact and make me feel secure. I can walk for a long time without my leg hurting and without the sole of my remaining foot getting sore. And with kybun shoe, I don’t need to worry about slipping when it’s damp or wet underfoot. With all other types of shoe, after a very short time my remaining foot starts hurting and the sole of my foot gets sore. With other shoes, I also feel much less secure when walking. I don’t find the kybun shoes to be unstable at all. These shoes help me in all kinds of situations and make me feel secure. Perhaps to begin with, it might feel slightly strange because you have to compensate a little. But I quickly noticed that these shoes help me to walk. I think that kybun shoes are the perfect footwear, especially for people who are starting to learn to walk with a prosthesis, because they help so much with walking.
I feel much lighter and smoother when I’m walking. The shoe has changed my whole life.
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 kybun shoe is simply the perfect shoe for me. I first learnt about the kybun shoe when I got onto the bus at a different bus stop. I saw a kybun 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 kybun shoe 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 kybun 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.
