The real benefit for me is that I’m comfortable when walking and have a lightness to my step. I don’t have a limp despite two surgically repaired hips, and my feet don’t sweat and are never tired. My feet are moving, I feel good and I stand up straight. I no longer hunch over, and my back pain is gone. The kyBoot is everything I had hoped for from a custom shoe.

I feel like my posture is more upright and my walk is more rounded. I no longer feel any shocks and I don’t have back pain in the evenings any more. For me, the air holes are a plus. My feet often get sweaty, but now I always have dry feet thanks to the ventilation.

Basically it's the comfort as you walk that stops you always getting a shooting pain in your heel every time you take a step. That's definitely special. You feel good in them, and it's very pleasant in these shoes. If my feet sweat, then my feet don't feel wet in these shoes any more. It's also very smooth and balanced as you roll through a step.

Since having these shoes I also have less foot odour, as the used air is pressed out as you walk and fresh air comes in, and that's very pleasant. Watch the video

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.
