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 had both my legs amputated at the thigh 25 years ago, and two years ago I had the latest high-tech prosthetics fitted. I’d hoped to be able to finally walk better with them but sadly this wasn’t the case and I was left disappointed. Despite the modern technology, which cost me €90,000, I still couldn’t walk on cobblestones.
But then I found the kyBoot shoes online. At first I was unsure about the soft sole of the kyBoot shoes but I discovered a completely new feeling after walking just a few steps. I felt like I could feel every millimetre of the ground. It was incredible that the prosthetic foot unexpectedly began to work and the kyBoot shoes perfected the entire roll-off phase of the foot. Getting up from a chair or out of the car has also proven to be much easier. I don’t slip on wet surfaces or snow anymore thanks to the kyBoot shoes.
I already have four pairs of kyBoot shoes now and cobblestones are no longer a problem!

I am so impressed by the kyBoot. I will never buy myself any other shoe again. That simply won’t do. Once you try the kyBoot, you can never turn back. I can only say positive things about my experiences with the shoe. As I said, I will never wear another shoe brand again.
I’ve been wearing kyBoot 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.
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.
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.
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!
