kybun Opinions

Jiří Šedivý, M.D., head of the Department of Orthopedics, Jihlava Hospital, Czech Republic

kybun shoes ideally combine three important factors of healthy and pleasant walking in shoes – the springiness of every step, comfort – thanks to the perfect shape and spaciousness of the shoe – and easy lower extremities workout and exercise just through regular walking, thanks to the principle of the unstable underfoot. Engaging maximum muscles of lower extremities as well as the torso automatically leads to their strengthening. Involving all muscles in regular walking also results in significant performance boost of the “muscle pump”, which has a wholesome effect on the venous and lymphatic system of lower extremities. Walking in these shoes therefore relieves chronic back and joint pain, is beneficial for overstrained tendons and ligaments and last but not least it can reduce tension and pressure in calves. The main use of kybun shoes is for me walking on hard surfaces – walking to work in the city, intensive city tourism (excursion tours, etc.). But you will greatly benefit from them in lighter terrain as well. Put on the kybun shoes and your feet will be grateful to you!! On top of that, they are just comfy to walk in…

Stephanie Bruhin, manager of a shop Winterthur, Switzerland

You walk a lot more gently, it’s more comfortable to stand. It’s much more pleasant now to spend the entire day at work, which is about ten to 12 hours.

Rebecca Bänziger, baker-confectioner and saleswoman Winterthur, Switzerland

I always used to have very heavy legs and since I’ve worked in these, I don’t have them anymore.

Juhani Turunen from Finnland

After 18 full marathons and several half ones, I recently had to quit running because of pain in the lower back and the legs. The medical diagnosis was Spinal Stenosis. But I never stopped moving. Thanks to the combination of kybun shoes and Pilates, I am able to make long walking-tours and hiking in the wonderful Finnish nature.

Juhani Turunen from Finnland

Urs Gerber, owner Holzofe Grabebeck Winterthur, Switzerland

I think everyone should wear this type of shoe. It’s because I have to stand a lot at work. We’re here for eight to nine hours every day and most people wear shoes that they don’t like anymore or trainers with closed toes. I don’t know how to describe what it feels like to wear these shoes. It’s difficult to explain; it’s like being on a cloud.

Urs Gerber, owner Holzofe Grabebeck Winterthur, Switzerland

Franz Heinzer, World Champion and Swiss Ski Junior Coach

If I need to stand for a long time or spend a lot of time on my feet, then I put them on. I even go on mountain runs while wearing my kybun shoes. They’re suitable for light exercise. But I really do need them for exercising.

Franz Heinzer, World Champion and Swiss Ski Junior Coach

Björn Caviezel, CEO Heidiland Tourismus AG

It’s the shoe for every occasion. If you’re on the go a lot. Whenever I take my dog for a walk, I always wear my kybun shoes. Nothing else even comes close.

Björn Caviezel, CEO Heidiland Tourismus AG

Michael Hirte harmonica player, Germany

I used to always have a seat on the stage. At this concert I had one too, because it was a bit longer. Back then, when I played for a half an hour or so, I would have had to get a seat and sit down. I had severe pains when standing. I don’t have that with these shoes. I can stand up there on stage, I can move around, I can play and it doesn’t hurt any more.

Michael Hirte harmonica player, Germany

Stefan Burkhalter, Alpine wrestler from Switzerland

I do mostly wear them for walking, for long days at work. I wear them if I have to walk or stand for long periods. I think these are the best shoes and I have no pain in my back or knees. Without fail, I always wear the green and white shoes when I go to a St Gallen football match.

Stefan Burkhalter, Alpine wrestler from Switzerland

Fritz Streiff from St. Gallen, Switzerland

How did you find out about the consultation day? We visited the headquarters here in Roggwil. We had a look around for ourselves. We heard about it from lots of different people. We tried on some shoes here. All it took was 10 or 20 minutes. We felt really good in them and decided to buy them. Then we tried them out in day-to-day life. After wearing these shoes for six months, I can now say for sure that it’s much better than it was. How would you describe how it feels to wear kybun shoes? Well, how can I describe it? It feels as though you’re walking on a cloud. The only disadvantage is that you walk a bit unevenly to start with. But you get used to it. Other than that, they are very warm. I was still having problems with my left leg. I used to walk with my foot tilted outwards. That has straightened up since I’ve been wearing these shoes. The pain has also disappeared. I used to have a painful knee, probably for that reason. The doctor said he’d give me an injection for it. Then I enquired about it and he said that one cortisone injection lasts three months. It’s four months with another method, and then you have to get it again. So I decided to leave it for a while. I was exercising anyway and moving my leg about. And now I’ve got these shoes and it’s been fine ever since. Would you recommend kybun shoes to others? Yes, definitely! We just recommended them to someone earlier today. He was staying with us but was heading on to Germany and said he’d look for some in Cologne.

Fritz Streiff from St. Gallen, Switzerland

Dory Zsimoly, Hotel Scesaplana Seewis, Switzerland

When I wore conventional shoes, I had pain in my back and, as you’d expect, in my feet. But the pain has gone now. Disappeared.

Dory Zsimoly, Hotel Scesaplana Seewis, Switzerland

Elsbeth Willi-Bardill from Switzerland

I am 87 years old. You used to find me on all sorts of mountains. I was even on the Kest. I used to strain my legs too much. In those days, there were no walking sticks. At my age, I notice it in my legs now. That’s why I’m happy that I’ve got these shoes.

Elsbeth Willi-Bardill from Switzerland

Monika Hitz-Bacher, client Hotel Scesaplana in Seewis, Switzerland

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.

Monika Hitz-Bacher, client Hotel Scesaplana in Seewis, Switzerland

Reto Scherrer, Radio and TV presenter, Weinfelden, Switzerland

I’m not the type of person who would just advertise or promote a product. I’ll use a product when I’m really convinced by it. At the moment, it’s these shoes but I’m satisfied with other products, too. The benefit of these shoes is really that I feel better when I’m out and about for a long time. I have fewer problems with my legs and feet when I have to stand for long periods. That impressed me a few years ago and made  me choose these shoes.

Reto Scherrer, Radio and TV presenter, Weinfelden, Switzerland

Stephanie Bruhin, manager of a shop Winterthur, Switzerland

At the beginning, it was hard to get used to the shoes. It also felt like I had sore muscles in my shin; I don’t even know if that’s possible. Sometimes I had to change back into normal shoes, but now it’s OK. I would never give them away.

Stephanie Bruhin, manager of a shop Winterthur, Switzerland

Ruth Bachmann, client Hotel Scesaplana in Seewis, Switzerland

I’m beyond satisfied with them. You walk so easily in them, and your legs never get tired.

Ruth Bachmann, client Hotel Scesaplana in Seewis, Switzerland

Ursula Altdorfer, Hotel Scesaplana in Seewis, Switzerland

Moving around a lot very quickly is a big part of our job. Sometimes you turn a corner, go into the kitchen, and see that the floor in there’s wet because something’s dripping. But these shoes have firm traction no matter what. In the past, when I wore regular shoes, I would slip. I would wear other shoes sometimes, and I slipped and fell in the kitchen. That never happens with this shoe. It has a really firm grip; you can walk on wet surfaces and rely on the traction.

Ursula Altdorfer, Hotel Scesaplana in Seewis, Switzerland

Doris Aebli, Hotel Scesaplana in Seewis, Switzerland

Each day, we spend 14 to 15 hours on our feet, and these shoes keep us from developing back and foot pain. It’s a great feeling.

Doris Aebli, Hotel Scesaplana in Seewis, Switzerland

Rosmarie Muther client consultation day Roggwil, Switzerland

How did you find out about the consultation day? I received an e-mail and then I thought it might be worth considering as I have problems with my knee and leg all the time. But I forgot about it and thought what good would it do. I had a lot going on at the time and I also went on holiday. I came here to the shop yesterday and just wanted to buy a pair of socks. But then I also bought this trampoline. Then the shop assistant asked me whether I wouldn’t like to take part in the consultation day after all. Then I thought yes, if there are appointments left, why not? So I came. How did your appointment go on the consultation day? I enjoyed the consultation very much. It was nice to have someone really look into my problem. So far I’ve been to see a doctor and a physiotherapist. But nobody knew what was wrong and whether I was faking it. Whenever I stand for a long time, it really starts to bother me. It’s hard for me to walk downhill or climb stairs. I was taken seriously during the consultation and given very good advice. Why would you recommend the consultation day to others? As I already said, I felt as if I was taken very seriously and they treat you as a whole person. They don’t try to talk you into anything and you don’t feel pressured into buying shoes. Of course I did, but I will be needing new shoes again soon. My old shoes are really old. The overall service is really good, in my opinion.

Hermann Baur from Switzerland

So, right now I’m actually alone at this BEA. For this event, I have to spend ten days in a row on my feet nearly all day. I don’t spend that much time standing at work, so I’m not used to it at all. That’s why, in the past, I always experienced leg pain at trade fairs like this. I don’t anymore, though.

Hermann Baur from Switzerland

Turi Reber accordionist from Switzerland

I was employed at the post office. I spent almost 50 years working for the post office. I was on the go all the time, and my feet suffered from it. I had to have a foot operation, and from there on out it got worse and worse. Thanks to the kyBoot, I can now walk again without pain.

Turi Reber accordionist from Switzerland

Annina Dietsche from Rüthi, St. Gallen, Switzerland

Whether I’m at work or at home, the kyBoot is the perfect shoe for long walks or long periods of time standing on hard surfaces, thanks to its springy, elastic sole. Thanks to this shoe, my legs don’t feel heavy, and my posture has improved. That lets me actively prevent potential joint pain. “Whether I’m at work or at home, the kyBoot is the perfect shoe for long walks or long periods of time standing on hard surfaces, thanks to its springy, elastic sole.

Samuel Schilt technical building manager at the Centre for Medical Training in Bern, Switzerland

Before he switched to the kyBoot, his legs would be tired from working on hard surfaces. Now it’s like walking on clouds. I have to say it’s a great feeling.

Samuel Schilt technical building manager at the Centre for Medical Training in Bern, Switzerland

Christine Muchenberger from Switzerland

For 20 years, all my shoes have had to be two centimetres higher. Then I was straight again and walking was so much easier because it was soft now instead of hard. I then had to find out whether this would even be possible with these shoes. Whether this elevation could actually be done with the material. I got my answer and they made it in the factory with the two centimetre height increase – and it’s great.

Christine Muchenberger from Switzerland

Dr. Konnikov, dental expert on the Russian TV station Channel 1

The workload in the medical profession is high, and we are constantly on our feet. That is why I decided to wear the kyBoot Swiss air-cushion shoe to work. It relieves my joints and enables me to spend more time on my feet without making me feel tired or uncomfortable.  Thanks to the special soles, it feels like I am walking on air!

Dr. Konnikov, dental expert on the Russian TV station Channel 1

Birthe Eikmeier, CEO (Finance, Personnel, Purchase) at rutec in Syke, Germany

Ever since I started using my kybun mat, I no longer experience back problems in connection with my slipped disc. My back musculature is strong, and the ‘active’ standing position I assume on the mat has had a positive effect on my legs. 

Birthe Eikmeier, CEO (Finance, Personnel, Purchase) at rutec in Syke, Germany

Oliver Martin owner Martin Confiserie, Switzerland

For me, the main difference lies in how I feel when I’ve been standing for a long time. I spend a lot of time at markets and trade fairs, which means long days on my feet. I rely on the fact that I have a shoe that helps me keep from tiring out too quickly. Here in the shop, we’ve also set up a lot of our workstations with standing desks. I also appreciate that I have a good shoe to wear when I’m standing and working here.

Oliver Martin owner Martin Confiserie, Switzerland

Katharina Mayer-Steinhäusl from Vienna, Austria

I’ve spent 30 years working in retail while wearing shoes that were stylish but far too uncomfortable. This has unfortunately taken its toll on my legs. I was suffering from Morton’s neuroma, a bunion, pain in my knees and lumbar spine, and on top of that, I fractured my femoral neck last summer after having an accident. It was virtually impossible for me to walk or stand without feeling pain, even when wearing flat shoes with insoles. Fortunately, a friend of mine recommended the kyBoot shoes to me. She had been wearing a pair for a while herself, and was familiar with how the shoe’s enormous benefits. Purchasing a pair was definitely worth it for me as well. The comfortable air-cushioned insole makes walking a genuine pleasure – like you are walking on cotton. I also find the shoe very stylish, and people often come up to me to give their compliments. It was quite hard for me to choose just one pair from the large selection of models available – I’m sure this won’t be the last pair that I will buy. 

Katharina Mayer-Steinhäusl from Vienna, Austria

Dominik Engeli, druggist from Weinfelden, Switzerland

I have been a huge fan of the kyBoot shoe for six years! As a pharmacist, I need to spend the majority of my time at work standing on my feet. Fortunately, the kyBoot allows me to do this without feeling any pain in my feet and keeps me from having tired legs even after a challenging day! 

Dominik Engeli, druggist from Weinfelden, Switzerland

Susanne Bogedaly from Germany

Hello, my name is Susanne Bogedaly. I have been suffering from chronic plantar fasciitis in both of my feet as well as a heel spur in my left foot for about a year and a half. I tried just about everything I could, including all conventional therapy methods. The doctors said there was virtually nothing left for them to try. I tried using insoles and sensorimotor insoles, took pain medication and underwent shockwave therapy. In the end, I was under so much psychological strain, and nothing had helped. In my desperation, I decided to try one last thing. I came across the kyBoot on the Internet and tried on a pair. I did some research and opted for this model. I am very impressed. It was my last hope, and it has enabled me to walk comfortably, like I’m walking on air, just the way it was described in the advertisement. It is perfect for me, because I’m a nursery teacher and need to be on my feet every day. I am standing for many hours every day, so I wear the shoes at work and also wear them as slippers at home. I have already place an order for the next model, which is the Arosa model. This is a black lace-up boot that comes up to here. It looks very elegant. I want to encourage everyone who is suffering a similar fate as I was and is in despair to simply try it out! It really is worth it. I am very impressed. I can walk again comfortably and almost without any pain. I will stick with the kyBoot. I am very happy with it. I wish everyone the best and urge them not to give up!

Susanne Bogedaly from Germany

Liz Tödtli from Switzerland

I definitely have a sense of cushioning. When you’re pregnant, you really do have the feeling that everything is becoming soft and expanding and the kyBoot really does offer cushioning for when you’re walking and standing. I never have swollen legs or feet. I feel fit. Now, I feel secure when I know that I’ll be walking a long distance by foot. I know that I’ll be able to do it.

Liz Tödtli from Switzerland

Nicola Phillip from Switzerland

I felt quite free as a result of this movement. I often find myself shifting the weight of my body from one leg to the other. So today I tried to make sure that I was distributing my weight evenly onto both legs and feet at the same time. This was very comfortable.

Nicola Phillip from Switzerland

Hansruedi Poschung from Thun, Switzerland

I’m almost completely pain-free now. I have better circulation, particularly in my legs. I no longer get cramps in my calves and leg muscles. Like I said earlier, I can walk without any problems.

Hansruedi Poschung from Thun, Switzerland

Eugen Jud, Chemist from Switzerland

I wear the kyBoot shoes all day. The floor suddenly feels extremely hard whenever I switch to wearing regular shoes. I don’t feel any pain in my feet or legs or feel tired when I come home in the evening since I am standing all day at work.

Eugen Jud, Chemist from Switzerland

David Reichmuth, Chemist from Switzerland

I can’t imagine going to a trade fair without kyBoot shoes anymore. I always feel fit and active in the evening after my day at work instead of having heavy legs and back pain.

David Reichmuth, Chemist from Switzerland

Michael Eugster owner of Albert Suhner AG, Switzerland

I was having recurring problems with the soles of my feet; I would start to feel pain in them after standing for some time. I also often had tired feet. It felt like I was standing on a pillow. I thought to myself, this is definitely good for me. Since then, I have had no more pain in the soles of my feet and my legs don’t get tired. I used to also feel pain in my sciatic nerve, but this pain is now also gone.

Michael Eugster owner of Albert Suhner AG, Switzerland

Hans-Peter Schmid from Zurich, Switzerland

I’m out and about on foot a lot and I love being active. When I was wearing the kyBoot shoes I thought wow, it also eases the arthritis in my big toe joint. The pain was hugely reduced, almost to the point that it disappeared. That’s when I knew it would be a good idea to have these shoes.

Hans-Peter Schmid from Zurich, Switzerland

Veikko Huovinen owner of a restaurant in  Suomussalmi, Finnland

I have suffered feet troubles many years but finally I found shoes that has insole structure flexible enough to my feet. My work requires lot of standing in restaurant and kitchen where is often water and other slipperiness on the floor but I feel safe because my kyBoot are not slipper at all. In these shoes I don't feel my feet strained as in normal work shoes even after long day.

Werner Keusen sells specialist Italian food, Switzerland

After four or five hours, you started to feel tired and things started to feel difficult. Even though there were still nearly ten more hours to go! Keeping going until the evening was absolute agony. But really it was all because of my feet.

Lene Rasmussen from Denmark

I’ve been a good dancer in Denmark for many years. I did not know that dancing would break my bones. I’ve had surgery but couldn’t walk very well. I bought a pair of shoes from kyBoot shop in Denmark and thought that these would help to solve my problem. Within two months I began to walk better again. I lost about 8 kg of my weight over 7-8 months. During that time, I bought six pairs of sandals and shoes from kyBoot. These shoes have changed my life and I’m also able to walk faster. I am free of insoles, which I used for many years. I am very happy with my new life.

Lene Rasmussen from Denmark

Uri Salzinger, ex-pilot from Spoleto, Italy

On October 1993 I did a forced landing near an air field at the northern part of Israel. On take off, and few minutes air born I've noticed a sudden engine cut, did a rapidly  forced landing in a very bad field for landing, plenty of boulders and rocks. In these circumstances you can choose the right place - you take what you find. Fortunately the passenger didn't suffer any damage,but I broke badly my right ankle. It took me one year and a half of crutches and 3 orthopaedic operations to walk again. Until now I couldn't find  suitable shoes though I  tryed all possible firms and styles. I could walk, but always with pain and uncomfortable sensation. Two months ago a friend from Israel,and shoed me his shoes, which was of your production. I tried them and felt good.  I use those shoes for about one month and a half now,and for the first time after the incident I can walk again without lame ,pain or inconvenience and for relatively long courses even up the hill side. So, in short ,I am very happy now with your shoes and will buy some others for the next winter.

Michael Schöpf from Switzerland

I walk up to 15 kilometres a day and it’s comfortable and enjoyable. These shoes are like training devices for me.

Håkan Hagerman, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden

The main improvements for me is that my knees get less tired, I have no pain in my feet and due to standing 10-12hrs a day at work, my lower back used to hurt. Since I began using kyBoot two years ago, this is not a problem anymore.

Håkan Hagerman, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden

Arash Shirkhan, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden

Very pleasant to walk with, like walking on clouds. I’ve had them for a year now and they´re still in super condition. Before, when I had normal shoes, even good training shoes, my feet used to hurt terribly when I got home from a normal 12hr working day. But not anymore. It is certainly a big difference.

Arash Shirkhan, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden

Jonas Wåhlander, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden

Since I started to use kyBoot two years ago, I have much less pain in my feet, quicker recuperation after working out and less stiffness in my backside. Considering that I work out 7-8 times a week the shoes offers a good complement for recovering. According to me, a good shoe for shop staff.

Jonas Wåhlander, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden

Christina H. F. from Bönigen, Switzerland

I’m seven months pregnant, so it’s no wonder my feet and legs are aching. Wearing my kyBoot boots has relieved the pain. I now have no pain at all and it’s all thanks to the kyBoot.

Christina H. F. from Bönigen, Switzerland

F. T. from Jona, Switzerland

I bought my first pair of kyBoot shoes last autumn, as I was still struggling with the consequences of the accident I had in the summer of 2013. The torn muscle fibres in my right calf were very persistent. I underwent six months of physiotherapy and had an ultrasound (showing a 15 cm haematoma between fibres), X-rays and an MRI. After that, I had another round of physio with shockwave therapy. I also received acupuncture treatments and intense massages. Things seemed to be getting better in the short term, but the breakthrough result appeared to be just out of reach. I had severe pain in my right foot every time I stood up, and this mystified my doctors. Why am I experiencing pain in my foot when it was my calf muscles that were damaged? I decided to try out kyBoot shoes in October 2014. The staff members in the shop were friendly and provided very good advice, and I left with a pair of shoes. I’ve been wearing the shoes all day since then, when I’m on the go as well as at the office. I’ve even gone on a few gentle hiking wearing them. Despite the pain and against the advice of my GP, I have continued to take part in my favourite sport – partner dance (mostly disco swing and jive or in other words, the types of dance that involve a lot of movement). Alongside that I’ve been doing weekly strength training and stretching exercises, among other things. My GP organised an appointment for me in the Etzel clinic in the autumn and called in a sports doctor especially to handle my case. I got an appointment for 22 January 2015. However, my pain was gradually decreasing, and when it came to the time of the appointment, I had no pain at all. My GP still advised me to go to the appointment. The doctors at the clinic were amazed. They took X-rays and asked a lot of questions. How is it possible? They could no longer see any symptoms. The two specialists could only agree on the fact that the X-rays no longer showed any abnormalities. One of them thought that a minor insole could counteract the mild inward bend of my foot (why?). The sports medicine specialist believed I had done everything correctly. STAY MOBILE! He praised the work I had put in and my choice of physiotherapy methods (shockwave therapy and acupuncture). He emphasized how he believed that the constant mobilisation relieved the pain in my foot. This is all thanks to my kyBoot shoes. He advised me to continue doing what I have been doing – wearing kyBoot shows, taking part in sport, and dancing. He was firmly against the insoles! The pain was the result of the relieving posture I had been using from the time of my accident, which I continued to use for a long time after the accident. Continuously freely moving my foot allowed me to get out from the pattern I was stuck in almost unnoticed. Well, all I can say is: Thank you so much.

F. T. from Jona, Switzerland

Mrs. Zoi Rokomou from Greece

I was introduced to kyBoot from my physiotherapist, asking him to suggest me some shoes for walking after having spinal fusion of my last three segments of my lower back. From the first moment I stood on them I felt that they were going to help me, I got motivated to walk more and more because I really enjoyed the feeling by walking on them. After 6 weeks of their usage I noticed that: I could stand up for more than 3 hours straight without resting while before I could not stand up for more than 45 minutes, I could walk without rest for 70 minutes instead of 30, my swelling on my feet which had been there -after my low back operation 4 years ago - disappeared and I could distinguish different tendons and bones of my feet, the painful hallux valgus almost disappeared and finally some painful dilated blood vessels below of my right knee that I had been told to have some injections they no longer bother me and now I can not see them .

Mrs. Zoi Rokomou from Greece

Roberto Rendo, dentist, La Spezia, Italy

I have suffered from upper and lower back pain for a long time now. Due to the nature of my work, you could say I’m ‘chained’ to the dental chair for more than eight hours a day. I have to bend over the patients I’m treating, meaning my back muscles are always tense. I came to a turning point at age 60, when a physiatrist friend of mine advised me to wear kyBoot shoes. It was the solution to almost all of my postural problems. Taking a walk in my new kyBoot shoes is worth more to me than a session with an osteopath or an hour of Pilates! Aside from the wonderful feeling of walking on a cloud, my posture instantly rebalances and my back pain slowly disappears. I’m so happy with them that I bought one pair for the hospital where I work, another for my private practice, a sportier pair for spring and a winter pair for rainy days. Now I can’t get along without them. I also wanted to give a pair to my brother, who is an officer in the Carabinieri. He has had several operations for badly herniated vertebral discs. He was also very happy and satisfied with this new approach, after having tried many alternative therapies. But all these words are a waste of time ... you need to try them to understand the comfort, quality and therapeutic properties! You have to try them to believe it! Thank you, Kybun. I will always be grateful to you. I will only buy Kybun shoes!

Galina Babarika from Czech Republik

I have scoliosis since childhood, probably as a result of 1 cm one leg short, I'm still living with pain (in the back, below the right shoulder blade, then began to manifest pain in the hip). I did not know nothing about Swiss footwear brand kybun. Fortuitously, I met a man that works with the company kybun. I studied the technology and started with trust to wear shoes kyBoot. After one year and two months since I got shoes kyBoot, I can 100% certainty that biomechanoterapi works. No pain under the shoulder blade! I have no pain in the hip, strengthened stability in the legs. I thank God that he took care of my health and gave me new friends.

Galina Babarika from Czech Republik

Mr. Karst from Andernach, Germany

For me, things were not going well; my shoes stopped me from doing a lot. I could not walk much in my shoes and had a lot of pain in my back, upper legs and hip. Then, I saw kyBoots in the shop and went in to find out what sort of shoes they were selling. I then got a pair to try and immediately thought “Wow.” I had never experienced shoes like them. I almost had to hold onto the counter or else I would have fallen over, as I was a little wobbly at first. However, I quite quickly realised that this is very good for my body and that it would help me to cope with my pain so that I could get on much better in the future. All I had to do then was sign my name and I got a pair of shoes to try out. I was only interested in wearing the shoes for nearly a good week at least to see how I got on with them myself. On Tuesday afternoon, I received the shoes and, on Friday morning, I wore the shoes again and have had no more pain since. I have no more pain in my hip and back. No more pain at all, it’s all gone!! I had actually planned to have surgery on my hip this year, but it now looks like I no longer need the operation. I highly recommend these shoes to anyone who has problems with their bones and skeletal structure. Everyone should put aside a little bit of money when they have it if they cannot pay for them all in one go. This way, you can afford the shoes after saving up. It will do wonders for your health, that’s all I can say. I’ve experienced it myself and now bought two pairs of shoes. I saved up for them, too and have also saved even more. I buy things that I see that are good for me and my wife, and these two pairs of shoes are great for just that.

Mr. Karst from Andernach, Germany

T. W. kyBoot shoes during pregnancy, Switzerland

I would highly recommend wearing kyBoot shoes during pregnancy. For me, it was the perfect shoe to wear during the day to relieve the increased pressure on my feet and other joints and gently strengthen my body at the same time. I often felt physically tired, but my kyBoot shoes motivated me to keep moving and remain active during my entire pregnancy. Walking is so comfortable that even on days when you’re tired, you still feel like walking for a few kilometres. And you feel very fit afterwards. Another thing I love about kyBoot shoes is how they activated circulation in my legs. I suffered from circulatory problems and would often suddenly feel a strong, shooting dizziness sensation, particularly in the mornings. That’s why I was so happy to find a shoe that activated my circulation! Wearing the shows, together with surgical stockings, really made me feel a lot better. I never had the back pain that many pregnant women suffer from. I don’t know if I was just lucky or if it was thanks to my daily exercise in my kyBoot shoes. I’m pregnant now for the second time and enjoying walking in my kyBoot shows to relieve the strain on my body and exercise at the same time.

Leeroy Lo, from Singapore

Walking with pain used to be part of my daily lifestyle. I suffered heavily from lower back aches and sore heels, not to mention my feet would constantly feel extremely hot after long hours of standing. It was not until I saw a small advertisement which had three simple words, "Walk-on-air",kyBoot. After that everything changed. That very night, the internet supplied me all I needed to know about kybun and before I knew it , I was ordering my first pair of kyBoot. Only I ordered the wrong size! Images of horrific online shopping stories started swirling in my head, as I begun the dreadful customer service phone procedure, only to be greeted by a wonderful lady. She cheerily greeted me, and after I explained my terribly awkward mishap, promptly gave me perfect advise for shoe sizing and settled the ordering purchase immediately. Now I wont lie, I love walking on air. Experiencing the first moments of putting on my kyBoot shoes felt like relearning how to walk again. This time, pain free. It was enjoyably hysterical when I took my first few steps as my ankles had to read just to the softness of the floor bed. Once I got the hang of it, I noticed immediately that the pain on my lower back was alleviated. It occurred to me that a lot of pressure that was initially borne by my back was now transferred away and that my body was more relaxed during my normal walking form. The heat from my foot soles seemed to develop much more slowly, and generally walking has now become a pain free experience. Thank you kybun for giving me the gift of enjoyable walking, and for being a company that not only is proud of its shoes, but has a service family that sincere, heartfelt and seriously amazing. I cant begin to thank you guys enough!

No other shoe like this! My job requires me to work on my feet all day. Two years ago my metatarsal arch dropped. The pain was unbearable at first but with orthotics I was able to work and have worn them ever since. Now the pain is back and the orthotic is bothering me…my physiotherapist believes my foot muscles have become weak (probably from the orthotic) and indeed, when I'm able to exercise the foot, the pain relief is very apparent. In the meantime I need a soft soled shoe to keep me on my feet. The kyBoots are not only the softest shoes I've ever worn, but they will help strengthen my feet as well! How perfect is that? I have worked my current job for 32 years and am eligible for early retirement in a few more years, but I didn't think I'd be able to make it. I had actually started looking for another line of work, and preparing to give up all the seniority and benefits I currently enjoy (including early retirement!). Now I won't have to do that. I'm so glad I found these shoes, they are amazing, like nothing else I've ever worn! And I just have to add, after wearing the shoes for the last two weeks at work. My feet actually feel better after five days of work, than they do after my two days off without them!
I can't wait until I can afford to buy another pair for wearing around the house, can't live without them now

The shoes help relieve my lower back pain. I’ll wear kyBoot whenever I know I will be walking a lot that day. After a long day, when I remove the shoes, I could hardly walk on the hard floor because kyBoot makes walking more comfortable.

Randy Ang, Director at In Touch Systems Pte Ltd, Singapore

Wearing kyBoot feels like walking on air. I wear them while travelling and it makes walking long distances an ease. Best part was I wore the kyBoot during the entire Singapore F1 race. Being a volunteer marshal, I need to be alert, on our feet, standing and walking for 15 hours every day for the entire race weekend. Wearing the kyBoot made this experience very enjoyable as I felt much less fatigue.

Erika Weiss, the kyBoot relieves her aches and pains, Switzerland

In our job, we're out and about all day. I walk about on bumpy paddocks and have arthritic knees which leave me in constant pain. The kyBoot replaces the cushioning which I lack in my knees due to the arthrosis. That soothes the pain.

Well, the benefit is definitely if you stand for long periods, for instance, or work in sales, then you really don't get any back pain any more. That's what I always find.

Jakob Wampfler, postal worker at the Federal Palace in Bern, Switzerland

Since I started wearing kyBoot shoes, I've never had any pain in my feet, even after rushing around for 10 hours. They cushion you and level things out; my feet feel like they're permanently in a bubble bath.

As I walk into work and walkback home, too, it takes 50 minutes altogether toget to work. That means the kyBoot is ahuge relief. I've got walking boots and summer shoes.I simply wear them all year round.

It used to be extremely hard for me to stand all day and live with the pain. Now it's almost gone entirely.

Of course, when you spend so much time on your feet you do get a bit more quality of life. And if you feel good, that automatically improves your mood.

Dora Huguenin, museum tour guide in Le Locle, Switzerland

It's great for me, as we have various different evenings, for example an evening for friends of the museum, or the museum open night. Then you're on your feet until midnight, and before that you had your working day behind you. It's great for me, as I have absolutely no trouble with my feet or my knees. And when I sometimes see how xhausted my younger colleagues are – and I'm the oldest one here at the museum – then it's always nice to say, I've really got no problem! And I feel fine.”

Dora Huguenin, museum tour guide in Le Locle, Switzerland

Beat Müller, music producer, Switzerland

A very airy feeling. I feel like I'm floating or flying. I've felt much better since getting these shoes. I can get out and about and walk round a lot. My feet don't hurt any more; instead I feel as if I could spend another five hours on my feet.

If you work a lot – and of course I'm a Chef and had to stand a lot, twelve hours at a time, with little exercise – then you do get a bit of, well I wouldn't call it pain, but at the end of the day the soles of your feet are sore. And in these shoes you don't feel a thing.

Pascal Wieser, CEO of Vögele Reisen AG, Switzerland

At a shopping fair, if I walk long distances through the aisles or have to stand a lot, I say to myself with increasing frequency that comfort is much more important to me. They don't look bad. The kyBoot has been developed since the first generation. What's very important to me is to feel good and stay healthy.

Sepp Müller, Uttwil Musical Society, Switzerland

We were at a regional music festival where we wore the shoes from morning to night. The next day, my feet were fine. I had no pain at all. My feet always ached with my old shoes. I would always have to Cool my feet down the next day. I had no problem whatsoever with the kyBoots. It was very positive for me.

Sepp Müller, Uttwil Musical Society, Switzerland

Rey Muskal, Animal Assisted Therapist, Ramat Hasharon, Israel

I always looked for comfortable sports shoes that I could wear from morning to night and not return home at the end of the day with foot pain. I walk a lot and since I wear kyBoot I am able to go for longer walks, longer distances and I come home with no foot pain, often I forget that I am wearing them and I keep them on around the house, and that's a sign that I am comfortable, and I recommend them to anyone who is looking for comfortable shoes or has pain, to try them.

Maya Katsir, student and waitress, Tel-Aviv, Israel

I suffered with pains in my legs and knees. I work as a waitress and we do 8 hours shifts. I looked for shoes that could help me endure the entire shift. Then I discovered kyBoot and bought a pair. I adjusted to them very quickly, I had no problems.  I enjoy working in them; it feels like walking on pillows, or clouds… It's been a year and I use only them. I recommended to the chefs at the restaurant to buy them because they are very comfortable for standing and they do not slip in the kitchen, which is good for both, chefs and waiters. And that's it – it's wonderful.

Josh Goldberg, owner of 'Coffee Station' café, Ramat Gan, Israel

I suffered from pains in my legs because of hard work in my café. I got to the point where I felt like my legs are going to break. I bought a pair of kyBoot and after about an hour all my pain disappeared. I feel much more stable, it is very comfortable to work in them, and I recommend them very highly.

Herman Kreples, Automobile Mechanic, Rishon Lezion, Israel

These shoes are very suitable for me, personally, for my problem, which is a severe flat feet, according to the doctors. Nothing had helped me until I found the shoes by kybun. Lately I have bought a second pair. I cannot take them off my feet; I work only with them, I walk in them. On my trips abroad I used them too. I got through the days with pleasure, no pains in my legs, and I am very content.

Herman Kreples, Automobile Mechanic, Rishon Lezion, Israel

Danny Katsir, kyBoot shop owner, Yavne, Israel

All my life I have been looking for shoes, these shoes I met by chance after 20 years of searching for comfortable shoes. When I tried the shoes for the first time I had an acute problem in my right foot, a painful spur that caused me to limp. The moment I put my foot in the shoe I had stopped limping. Since then I do not take them off, I only wear them. These shoes have changed my life and improved its quality. They enable me to walk or stand 12 hours a day. I have no pain. All my orthopedic problems are still there but they do not bother me anymore.

Danny Katsir, kyBoot shop owner, Yavne, Israel

Adi Porat, Event Producer 'SimchaMaker', Rishpon, Israel

I am an event producer and while working I walk many hours during the day, from morning till afternoon. I wear my working clothes and at 5 pm I change into formal dress, so I look elegant. I haven’t found a pair of shoes that are comfortable, that I can wear and walk in up to 6 pm. By the time the event began I would be in pain: pains in my knees, in my back, I used pain killers, ointments and so on. The event had not started yet and I would be in tatters. Until I came across the ideal thing: kyBoot shoes. From the moment I put them on my body felt differently immediately, really, no kidding. There was a different feeling in my body. I felt less pains, until they disappeared completely, after the third or fourth time I walk in the shoes. I was not in pain. I started to produce my events in leisure, without pain killers or ointments. I recommend them to anyone, whatever the pain, they can help everyone.

Heidi Stäger, Owner cleaning company, Gais, Switzerland

I used to put more weight on my right foot, because it's longer. So I always stood on that one. And then it simply wasn't balanced any more, and with these shoes it somehow levels itself out, and I was standing much straighter. Even when sitting I notice that now, already, after a year – it takes a while, it's not from one day to the next – that I am simply sitting much straighter and everything's different. My whole posture is different. All of it.

Rolf Hässig, managing director at RH Reifen Service AG, Switzerland

Good shoes are the be-all and end-all. If you're on your feet all day, you need good shoes. I've never scrimped in that way. I've always bought something good.

Priska Hirt, lives in Bubikon, Switzerland

At first it was difficult to break in the shoes. I could only walk in the shoes for 5 minutes a day and now, after 4–6 months, I can walk in the shoes for over a day. When I walk, my legs don't feel heavy any more. In the evening I lie in bed and my back is relaxed. I no longer have to tense myself for 10 minutes until it relaxes.

Marco Hanselmann, lives in Appenzell, Switzerland

In 1998 I had a serious motorbike accident. Everything was shattered from the knee down. First they wanted to amputate my leg, but then, fortunately, for me, the doctors managed to save it. From then on I was in pain every day. I looked into ways to soothe the pain, and that's how I came across the kyBoot.

Marco Hanselmann, lives in Appenzell, Switzerland

Gopal RajGuru, Nyon, Switzerland

In my work as a sales trainer, I stand pretty much every day for 8-10 hours. A few years ago, this created a real problem – tremendous pain in my feet. It started with incredibly sharp pain from the first step out of bed in the morning, and built strongly throughout the day, to the point I could barely focus on my work by lunchtime. My doctor told me it was a common ailment that affects people who stand or walk a lot, called plantar fasciitis. For years, I tried everything – softer shoes, inserts to reduce heel shock, sitting during my presentations, even acupuncture, but nothing worked. I spent thousands on these so-called “cures” without any relief. Then one day while walking (painfully) down the street in Oakville, Canada I came across a little sign that advertised “new Swiss shoes that promised tremendous walking comfort”. Inside the pharmacy, a very nice woman introduced me to the kyBoot. Wow, the pain in my heels was already less after just a couple of hours in the kyBoot. After returning to Switzerland, I bought a pair immediately and started wearing them in my day-to-day work. After 2 weeks, I noticed something amazing… I no longer felt my feet during the day. They were just there, comfortable, and happy. No pain, even after I took off my shoes in the evening. No pain in the morning when getting out of bed. I simply could not believe it. The pain in my feet is simply gone – it’s changed my life. Pain is no longer the focus of my every waking (or walking) minute and I can stand all day in my workshops in total comfort. I am thankful for this amazing invention. These are the most terrific shoes and they really have changed my life!

Jürg Sieber, adviser at Nahrin, Widnau, Switzerland

They're air-cushioned, which is very good for me, as I spend all day on my feet, mostly at markets or trade shows. In these, my feet hurt less - sometimes even not at all. I really enjoy wearing them. The sole is good, too: if you walk as much as I do, you have to throw out normal shoes every six months. I've now had these shoes for three months, but you still can't see any signs of it on the soles. They are comfortable shoes – absolutely wonderful! 

Jürg Sieber, adviser at Nahrin, Widnau, Switzerland

Olivier van der Staal, chef, Renan, Switzerland

I was working for two months in Germany and visited a friend in St. Gallen. My wife went shopping and saw the shoes. After we'd eaten she said, “You have to try them!” I tried them out and spent all day walking round St. Gallen, and it was great. Then I started working in them. Yes – you can't describe it.

"Since June 2009 I have been wearing kyBoots whenever possible in my job as a postal worker and all my spare time. I hardly have any back pain any more and my varicose veins are just a bad memory. I am delighted and no longer like to walk in any other shoes."

Roger Stauffer, sings bass in the Gossau gospel choir, Switzerland

I can stand in these shoes all day with no trouble at all. If we have to be ready at 3pm though the concert doesn't start until 7pm, I don't feel a thing. I don't have any trouble, either in my back or my knee, and my feet are not sore either. It's really worlds apart, like day and night.

Roger Stauffer, sings bass in the Gossau gospel choir, Switzerland

Pascal Wieser, CEO of Vögele Reisen AG, Switzerland

At first it felt spongy, though in a pleasant way. The shoes are soft but not wobbly. I find the air circulation around my feet very pleasant. It means I don't sweat. I don't always feel as at ease in rubber soles. I could never go round all day in trainers, even though they have a cushioning effect. But in these shoes it's not a problem.

Pascal Wieser, CEO of Vögele Reisen AG, Switzerland

Manuela Fellner, singer and Swiss Grand Prix champion, Switzerland

For my TV appearances I'm on my feet for about two or three hours. From that point of view it's sensational if I can stand on an air cushion. I always have to find my balance a little, which is much more pleasant.

Priska Hirt, is training to be an equine physiotherapist, Switzerland

I've always had back pain, for as long as I can remember. It spread into my legs giving me sleepless nights. After I'd really tried out almost everything, I thought this would be worth my while now. Especially as I know that your shoes are hugely important, and look out for it. So I went into a shop one day and had a look at everything. At first they gave me some shoes to try out, which I thought was great. I didn't want to spend that much money at first. I'd then only had these shoes on for 5 or 10 minutes when my knee hurt. At first I was appalled. They'd warned me about it, but I wouldn't have thought it would hurt that much. And then I was given a kyBounder and told to exercise on it 6–7 times a day. After just two weeks I realised that I could now stand on it on one leg without it hurting. Then I brought the mat back and bought my first pair of shoes. I haven't had any problems since.

Imelda Angehrn, dog breeder from Gossau, Switzerland

At first I was really tired. I had the kyBoot shoes on for 2–3 hours and then felt tired. My legs grew heavy. I don't have that feeling any more. You have to get used to it. You're using different muscles than in normal shoes, that's my interpretation, anyway.

Imelda Angehrn, dog breeder from Gossau, Switzerland

Priska Hirt, is training to be an equine physiotherapist, Switzerland

I'm actually training to be a horse physiotherapist. And the kyBoot gave me back the hope that I would be able to go through with it after all. Before, I wasn't able to stand for more than an hour. Since I got the kyBoot I have been able to walk about for over 12 hours and stand without getting tired legs, without any pain or fear of not being able to sleep at night. Thanks to the kyBoot I'm heading for my dream job. That's why I'm now so happy and recommending it.

Priska Hirt, is training to be an equine physiotherapist, Switzerland

Olivier van der Staal, chef, Renan, Switzerland

When you stand all day, are always on your feet and don't get any breaks, though you move about a lot, you can feel it in your feet, your legs and your back. It comes from working too much. I've never had a problem, but with kyBoot shoes you can work a great deal, and that's very pleasant, of course.

Olivier van der Staal, chef, Renan, Switzerland

Romy Ziltener, Weesen am Walensee, Switzerland

I had back pain, and on top of that my left leg is 2.5 cm too short. I'd tried almost everything. It's a congenital defect. At first I wore MBT shoes. I thought they were the best there is, but I couldn't walk in them. Even the specialists said I couldn't walk in them. I looked a bit further afield and came across the kyBoot. Thanks to someone working at the chemist's, ho let me take the shoes home straight away, I was able to try the shoes out. I wasn't convinced immediately; it felt strange and they "wobbled about” a bit. She actually said that my muscles might ache, but I didn't get that during the trial period, only later. After I'd got over the whole thing, I have to say that they're really great. No more cold feet. We already have three pairs and I'm getting another pair soon.

While I can stand for more than three hours, the others are constantly sitting down complaining about having tired legs. I did just the same until six months ago. Today I can stand for much longer and tired legs are absolutely a thing of the past.

Jakob Wampfler, postal worker at the Federal Palace in Bern, Switzerland

I spend all day in the kyBoot, as I have to walk around a lot. I rely on my shoes to make sure my feet don't get too tired and I don't get any pain. In that respect, of course, the kyBoot is the best thing you could ever imagine.

Jakob Wampfler, postal worker at the Federal Palace in Bern, Switzerland

Imelda Angehrn, dog breeder from Gossau, Switzerland

I like wearing them to shows. Mainly because you're on your feet all day. On one hand you'vegot dogs that pull on the lead, and on the other you have to run round the show ring with the dogs. I used to take two pairs of shoes for that,but not any more. Now I wear kyBoot shoes: youcan do anything in them!
