I have very sensitive feet and have always suffered from blisters on my heels. That’s all gone now. The shoes adjust to my feet and I can walk all day without any pain or discomfort.

As your feet have to move about a lot more, somehow the calluses just go away. I don't have cracked skin any more in the winter. I always had really deep cracks in the heel and my entire foot, really. I don't have that at all any more. I do still have to rub cream in, as they are still quite dry, but it's not as bad as how it used to be.

When the assistant was advising me I realised that for the first time I was wearing shoes that didn't pinch. So I decided to buy a pair. When I got talking to my orthopaedist, he was very sceptical and said that lots of people came back to him disappointed by kybun shoes, complaining of even greater pain. I took the warning seriously and asked myself what that might be all about. When you feel better, you tend to get quite fussy. I thought that was probably the mistake people were making. If you wear insoles for a long time, your foot muscles are weak. So I started wearing the kybun shoe and the shoe with insoles alternately, and gradually built up the intensity. I could feel my whole body getting fitter. Today I spend one day a week out with the dogs and might walk up to five-and-a-half hours. That's already possible, even though I've only been wearing the kybun shoes a short time. At the end of the day I can feel it in my feet, but the next day it's OK again.
