I have been a polyarthritis and soft tissue rheumatism patient for many years and have had quite a few attempts with orthopedically converted shoes and insoles that never quite fit properly, despite repeated modifications. Walking for any length of time caused me severe pain. As a dog owner and passionate hiker, I depend on being able to walk effectively. A colleague of mine first introduced me to the kybun shoe. Since then, I have been enjoying my dog walking without pain. At one point, I had to go back to orthopaedic shoes because I also had a hallux and a hammertoe. Very quickly I started to experience pain in the affected foot, knee issues and lower back problems. I immediately switched back to the kybun shoe and now I can walk pain-free again. Longer hikes are also possible and that includes walking downhill!

Two or three years ago I went into a chemist's as I was in very severe pain with rheumatism. They recommended kybun shoe to me, partly as I had extreme pain in my Achilles heel. I was allowed to try out the kybun shoe at home and was delighted. The pain had gone. That's why I then bought the shoes. I was overjoyed with them.
