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…

The workload in the medical profession is high, and we are constantly on our feet. That is why I decided to wear the kybun 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!

My own background is in research so I am always willing to try out new things. I have seen how helpful the shoes can be. I was particularly impressed when my wife told me that she couldn’t imagine going without these shoes. She says she now needs to go and change all of her other shoes. She is absolutely delighted. The shoes will particularly help pregnant women who were already suffering from pain. But they can also help people who have pain in the musculoskeletal system or neurological problems and I think pregnant women can definitely benefit from wearing them. Women can benefit from wearing kyBoot shoes, whether it is during the pregnancy itself or afterwards in the nursing period where joints are still more elastic and need more care.

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 kybun shoes. It was the solution to almost all of my postural problems. Taking a walk in my new kybun 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!

It's really comfortable. Like on a cushion.

I started out with a couple of hours in the morning and now I keep on trying to increase it.

It's like walking on air, and it's great.

When I started working at the laundry, I always got backache when doing the ironing. I went to the back pain advice centre, where they let me try out the kyBoot. I was even allowed to try out the shoes at home and at work. My back trouble vanished immediately. That was the key point for me: otherwise, I would have had to look for a new job. In the end, I chose these sandals.

I used to have a pair of MBT shoes, but it was too complicated for me. The first pair weren't even rounded underneath and it was very hard work. Then I had the shoes foam-injected, but it was really tricky walking in them. I've still got those shoes; they're like new, but of course I'm no longer interested in them. I'd rather order a pair of kyBoot shoes as they're easier to walk in.

You're cushioned, like you're walking on air. You can't simply come to a standstill; you always have to keep moving.

Firstly, you don't feel the shoes on your feet; they're very light, you just find yourself walking.  Watch the video

"From the daily clinical experience there are many areas of application for the kyBoot, for example instability of the back foot, where the lateral foot area many short, but also long muscles are. This tendon can be trained by the kyBoot very well."

"kyBoot help you keep balance and activate your muscles, from your toes to your back: they are helpful in the treatment of pain in the heels and forefeet, and are a method of choice to support the treatment of pain in the Achilles tendon and back."

"Proprioception (our sense of our body's movements and relative position) and proprioceptive training are very important to avoid injury. The kybun shoe is an effective tool for such training sessions; it can be worn the whole time and is very comfortable. It means that you are involved in a kind of constant training session without having to make a lot of effort. In the end I was able to try out the effect myself. Without any specific therapy, just from wearing the kybun shoe, I was able to cure my Achilles tendonitis: the unstable sole strengthened the muscles stabilising my ankle joints, taking the burden off the rest of my overstressed muscles. I recommend the kybun shoe following injuries to the lower extremities, for jobs in standing positions, for sportspeople and for the elderly, to prevent falls."

The shoes' soft sole make standing far more pleasant. It's a real relief to me. At first I couldn't really get my grip in these shoes, but that changed over time. It felt as if the shoes got a little firmer. I'm here now to have my stance tested on the pressure meter, as I have the feeling that I'm not standing properly in my shoes.

Working as a sports doctor for the Canadian bob team gave me the chance to test out the kybun shoe in everyday use and during light sports activities. I was very impressed by the kybun shoe concept. Walking is very pleasant, and above all it very much activates the body. You can feel that the sole is a very good shock absorber and moves in all directions, but it never feels unstable or unpleasant. I myself suffer from foot problems, as I have very high arches, with the ball of the foot often having to bear a very heavy load. The shoe suited my foot shape and needs from the very start, and I have been able to wear shoes without insoles for the first time in many years.
