kybun Opinions

Heidi Frei from Switzerland

It took me at least ten years to regain some sense of normality in my life. I have been back on my feet for the last five years, and now I’d like to be able to walk without feeling any pain. That’s why I ended up trying out the kybun shoe. I will wear this shoe for the rest of my life. Wearing this shoe is a true pleasure.

Heidi Frei from Switzerland

Carlo Bachmann from Switzerland

The deciding factor was noticing that it forced me to walk differently – for example, in a way that means there is no impact on my joints. In particular, my ankle joint and left knee always hurt a lot. It’s already got a bit better. Of course, I wasn’t expecting to correct 30 years in two months. But I have already made significant progress in that direction.

Carlo Bachmann from Switzerland

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

I think it’s important for people who are in the same situation as I was in three weeks ago to know that there is hope. That not all hope is lost just because it takes effort and discomfort to stand in the kitchen and cook, and perhaps not be able to do anything else afterwards. I really believe that if you have painful feet when you’re walking, moving, or going out it’s at least worth a try. The advice you get here is fantastic. I only know the shop in Rüti because it’s near to where I live. They made a huge effort to advise me, to make recommendations, and to help me, and they wouldn’t let me leave until I was 100% sure that I had the right shoe.

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

Samuel Gerber from Switzerland

It got so bad, that I had to walk with crutches for a time, because I really couldn’t walk anymore. There are so many things you can try. You can give insoles a go, but it’s all very expensive and that doesn’t ecessarily mean that they will even work. You end up having to buy new shoes anyway to insert the insoles, and those don’t come cheap, either. You’re much better off just buying a kybun shoe. It really improves your health. It straightens up your posture, for example. It simply takes the load off your back and other areas. Every part of you becomes more relaxed by simply moving as you walk.

Samuel Gerber from Switzerland

Carlo Bachmann from Switzerland

I walk differently now when I wear different shoes. I don’t drag my foot as much and I can push off from my heel. I wasn’t able to do that the past few years; I just walked as best I could.

Carlo Bachmann from Switzerland

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

I’m not exaggerating when I say that these shoes have probably added a few more years to my life. Although my disease is very rare, I suspect there are a lot of people who have similar difficulties. People who can’t walk or leave the house, who have gout and so on, could benefit a lot from these shoes. It’s like walking on a cloud, and if just standing in the kitchen causes you pain the shoes’ effects are absolutely sensational.

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

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.

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

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

I bought the shoe three weeks ago. At the time I was still walking around the neighbourhood on crutches. Slowly, like an old man. Today I can leave my house, go shopping, and get small jobs done. The freedom you get is like driving a car or riding a motorcycle for the first time. You suddenly have options again.

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

Heidi Frei from Switzerland

My mother and my brother, for example, have told me that I have been much more agile when I’m out and about. Maybe I haven’t noticed it myself, but other people have been telling me that I seem a lot more agile when I’m on the go. I’m much fitter throughout the day, because it doesn’t hurt me to wear it and it doesn’t rob me of my energy.

Heidi Frei from Switzerland

Voice over speaker from Montana

My wife purchased kybun shoe (Bern) a few weeks ago and LOVES them! She was suffering a lot of pain in her feet related to a knee replacement some time ago and says she is enjoying a lot of relief. Now her co-workers want a pair!

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

Phillip Scheuble, mayor of Rüthi SG

The pain really has gone. When I wear the shoes in the office the whole day, the pain is gone. I was absolutely fascinated, I didn’t expect it. The pain had been constant for a long time. It was particularly noticeable when I went to bed at night. Since I’ve had these shoes, the pain really has gone. And I haven’t made any other changes to my lifestyle. Wearing these shoes really was the only change. Wirklich nur das Tragen dieses Schuhs.

Phillip Scheuble, mayor of Rüthi SG

Kathrin Müller-Hänny from Lenzburg, Switzerland

Discovering kybun shoes was life-changing for me. I have had fallen arches, splay foot and flat foot since I was born. Because they couldn’t find any appropriate shoes for me, my parents spent a lot of money on having shoes tailor-made. I don’t have pleasant memories of that. When I was in primary school, I would go twice a year with my mother to a special shop in Zurich. I remember spending tedious hours in that ‘overheated’ shop, watching the eager sales assistant carry over piles of shoes — with limited success. Family hikes, school trips and ski holidays were usually agony. In May 2014 I discovered kybun shoes and it was the highlight of my year! Since then, I have been able to walk for hours without pain. I walk on hard pavements, for instance when I’m shopping in the city. I don’t get tired any more and my feet don’t hurt!  Before, every step felt like a blow to my less-than-healthy hips. Today, my hips and back are in good shape. I’m happy to stand in my kybun sandals on the ceramic tiles at home. I walk with my grandchildren through the Technorama science museum or the zoo, I stand in queues and stand for hours in front of the cooker. I stand more mindfully and am happy to do so! It’s a pleasure to walk more upright and more mindfully. Discovering kybun shoes was life-changing for me. I have had fallen arches, splay foot and flat foot since I was born.

Client from Switzerland

I had chronic inflammation in my Achilles tendon, and I spent a long time in physiotherapy. When I got better again, I wore the kybun shoe a lot and it really helped.

Client from Switzerland

Customer from Switzerland

I had trouble walking for almost two years, since I had a herniated disc. Then a friend gave me a pair of these shoes. I wore them regularly when I went out, which helped me walk again. Now everything’s good again. Thanks to the kybun shoe? Yes, thanks to kybun and my prayers.

Irene Millard-Faude lives in Australia

You experience less fatigue and you don’t feel any pain if you’re of an age where this is likely. My knees have always been a problem. I’ve had keyhole surgery once on my left knee and twice on my right. You just don’t want it to get worse. These shoes allow you to get back on your feet. You can really enjoy your life again. You notice they strengthen your muscles. Your muscles help to hold everything around your knee in place. It’s just fantastic.

Phillip Scheuble, mayor of Rüthi SG

It feels like my legs are healthier. And my circulation and gait have improved. I think I am more upright when I walk.

Phillip Scheuble, mayor of Rüthi SG

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

Heidi Frei from Switzerland

I feel it throughout my entire body. I have been able to significantly reduce the spasticity in my shoulder and in my arm. It’s still a little bit stiff, of course. The spasticity caused my arm to be stuck in a rigid position on my chest. That caused a lot of pain and tension in my body, but I don’t have that anymore. I no longer have to put up with it. I feel a lot more relaxed now; my back doesn’t tense up, and I can even raise my arm. The reason all this has happened is because my muscles are relaxed, and I believe that this is down to wearing the kybun shoe. This shoe has made all this possible.

Heidi Frei from Switzerland

Customer from Zurich, Switzerland

We’re at the kybun booth, and you’ve had a kyBoot for some time now. That’s right, and I’m really very pleased with the shoes. I needed them as orthopaedic shoes. They were very good for rehabilitation training, as I have a foot injury. And you feel better now? I can actually walk a lot better now. Though I occasionally change back into conventional shoes. It simply feels very pleasant to walk in the kyBoot. Thank you!

Customer from Zurich, Switzerland

Christian Tobler from Switzerland

Why do you wear shoes like that? They’re special shoes. Yes, they’re called kyBoot. They’re air-cushioned and wonderful. After walking a long distance barefoot on the beach, I ended up with a heel spur. That means a tear in the heel bone. I could no longer walk properly for months. Then I discovered the kyBoot and was able to try the shoes out. Lo and behold, all is well again. Since then, I always wear the kyBoot – in the mountains and elsewhere.

Christian Tobler from Switzerland

Michael Hirte harmonica player, Germany

I recommended the shoes to someone I know. He also had problems with his spine. I met up with him again recently. He showed me that he also had these shoes and said that they work perfectly and that they’re the absolute best! He feels much better and his pain is gone.

Michael Hirte harmonica player, Germany

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

This shoe can’t cure my illness, but the shoes have reduced my pain levels to 25–50 per cent of what they were previously. That means I can leave the house again, I can go to the thermal baths, and I can go swimming.

Michel from Wetzikon, Switzerland

Monika Kühlwein from Germany

Hello Jürgen! As promised, tomorrow I will reluctantly send the test shoes back to you. Although I am still not an active walker, even on my short walks I noticed a huge difference between my shoes and the kyBoot shoes. The way I stand is very different and the shoes even make it easier to stand up. I’m impressed! Honestly, I swear on kyBoot. I would never have believed the shoes could make walking feel so secure and comfortable. Recently, my kyBoot shoes got wet and I had to switch to normal shoes. Nothing seemed to work anymore and I was walking like a stiff puppet. I never want that to happen again!

Monika Kühlwein from Germany

Susanne Michel from Germany

My experiences with kyBoot shoes have been overwhelmingly positive. Shortly after my amputation, I met Jürgen Zeller at an appointment with my orthopaedic technician. It was through Jürgen that I received my first pair of kyBoot shoes. My right leg was also experiencing adverse effects from the accident, so I was thrilled with the kyBoot shoes from the very beginning. I have tried all sorts of expensive sports shoes, but none of them have come anywhere close to equalling the kyBoot! kyBoot shoes soften the heel impact and make me feel secure. I can walk for a long time without my leg hurting and without the sole of my remaining foot getting sore. And with kyBoot, I don’t need to worry about slipping when it’s damp or wet underfoot. With all other types of shoe, after a very short time my remaining foot starts hurting and the sole of my foot gets sore. With other shoes, I also feel much less secure when walking. I don’t find the kyBoot to be unstable at all. These shoes help me in all kinds of situations and make me feel secure. Perhaps to begin with, it might feel slightly strange because you have to compensate a little. But I quickly noticed that these shoes help me to walk. I think that kyBoot shoes are the perfect footwear, especially for people who are starting to learn to walk with a prosthesis, because they help so much with walking.

Susanne Michel from Germany

Evelyne Will, geriatric nurse

I had the opportunity to test the kyBoot for a couple of days, and when I was walking in it, I felt like I was floating on clouds. It was easy to walk in it, and I was able to move about quickly, even though I’m fairly short! Once I have moved house, I will be ordering a pair of kyBoot shoes. To wear kyBoot shoes is to have a footwear experience!

Evelyne Will, geriatric nurse

Customer from Germany

I am 71 and my left leg was recently amputated above the knee. I stumbled upon kyBoot online and I learned all about it from Mr Zeller over the phone. Two days later, a pair of kyBoot test shoes was delivered to my house. I was allowed to try them at home for two days and then keep them or send them back. After wearing and walking in the kyBoot shoes for three minutes, I picked up the phone and bought the shoes! I have never had shoes that are so soft, fit so well and look so fashionable! I have now been wearing them all day every day for 14 days and they are great. I now walk a lot more than I did in my old shoes! Five days ago, my wife ordered some kyBoot sandals from Mr Zeller and she only takes them off when she gets into bed! She is absolutely thrilled with the sandals. I would readily recommend kyBoot shoes! Thank you so much, Mr Zeller!

Customer from Germany

Oliver Decker from Germany

Fantastic stuff! How did I find out about kyBoot? Jürgen posted a link to his page in our Facebook group. It made me curious. Why? My left leg is amputated above the knee and my right ankle is damaged, so I am regularly in pain. I wondered whether these shoes could mitigate the problem. We started an e-mail conversation and Jürgen immediately offered to provide me with a pair of test shoes. After 14 days, I was won over and I ordered a pair. What was it that convinced me? It’s like walking on a cloud. In my Salo shoes, every stride feels stiff like a goose step. By contrast, the kyBoot shoes soften my steps and the foot rollover is very comfortable. They also make it easier to climb stairs step-over-step. My footsteps are quieter – now I can sneak up on people! Walking on pavements also feels much better. So those are my first impressions after a couple of weeks of wearing the shoes. Sure, they aren’t exactly cheap. But the shoes are making a positive difference. Which is why I am convinced that buying them was a good decision. I would recommend these kyBoot shoes wholeheartedly.   Thank you so much, Jürgen! Your tremendous commitment will ensure that lots more people will find out
about kyBoot and will hopefully be inspired to try wearing these shoes.

Elisabeth Bolleter from Cham, Germany

I have bunions on both feet that cause me a great deal of pain, and because of which I’ve had to wear insoles in my shoes for years. The pain came back, though, so I thought I’d try out this air-cushion shoe that I saw ads for. And look: Ever since I started wearing the kyBoot, I can once again enjoy painless short hikes, and nearly painless longer ones. I also wear the shoe as often as possible during the day, since it tires out my feet less. Because of that, I can still wear ‘normal’ shoes every now and then if I’m going out – and that’s important for me as a woman. I’ve been wearing the kyBoot for a number of years now. 

Elisabeth Bolleter from Cham, Germany

Beate Strittmatter from the Wutach Valley, Germany

I suffer from lymphoedema in my right leg and foot as well as back problems. Ever since I started wearing the kyBoot, my back pain has reduced dramatically, and I’ve experienced fewer problems with my leg as well. I’ve noticed that walking has become more of an exercise, but without being uncomfortable. Quite the opposite, in fact: I feel like I’m walking on clouds.  Mr Zeller provided excellent advice and support, and showed himself to be a true expert. He was able to provide many helpful tips for my specific problems, and I benefitted from his advice immensely. Getting to test out the shoes for a few days at the beginning was priceless, of course.

Beate Strittmatter from the Wutach Valley, Germany

Norbert Strittmatter from the Wutach Valley, Germany

Wearing the kyBoot makes it feel a lot more natural to walk with a prosthetic. It’s gentler on my back, too. It’s especially easier for me to walk down stairs when I’m wearing the kyBoot. Mr Zeller provided us with fantastic advice – he did an excellent job of answering all of my questions. I would definitely order these shoes again, anytime.

Norbert Strittmatter from the Wutach Valley, Germany

Rosalba Jäggi from Switzerland

I have to regain a lot of strength. It’ll take time, and I have to give myself that time. Wearing these shoes gives me confidence, because I notice that I can move again. That helps me trust my body again. I’m now getting feedback again from my body that I’m doing well. I want to do it, and I’ll give myself as much time as I need to get better.

Rosalba Jäggi from Switzerland

Andreas Bischof from Switzerland

It helps a lot, as we have seen in recent years in rehabilitation with physiotherapy, and as Simon Storm explained. It also does a great deal in terms of prevention and treatment for worn-out joints. So I find it areally good idea, one which certainly has a future, and which has already been confirmed and no longer has to prove itself.

Andreas Bischof from 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

Roland Diewald from Germany

I actually discovered the kyBoot completely by chance. I tried on a pair and found that I could actually walk very well in them. Now it is simply my shoe. I can really step on each heel and roll over my foot to the toes. The shoe helps me get a firmer footing and compensates for the movements within my stump. It simply feels great to walk and the main advantage by far is that I don’t stumble anymore. This was always a problem I experienced when I was wearing other shoes.  I would often trip over my toes and stumble when walking on uneven streets.

Roland Diewald from Germany

Carlo Bachmann from Switzerland

When I go shopping, for example the floors are hard and my feet get tired quickly. That makes my foot hard to control. Wearing these shoes, I can walk without the constant impact on my foot.

Carlo Bachmann from 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

Roger Christen from Switzerland

I could walk normally again from the first day onwards. It feels completely normal to walk again, and that’s what’s most important to me. I need to be able to move around freely, and I’ve been able to do so since the very first day. I was so excited to get started, and I’m still absolutely delighted. You can do it all from the very first day.

Roger Christen from Switzerland

Remo Pedron from Switzerland

Ever since I started wearing kyBoot shoes, I can stand and walk again. I particularly appreciate the fact that I no longer feel pain when I’m in bed.

Remo Pedron 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

Ursula Langel from Thun, Switzerland

I’ve noticed that I am steadier on my feet. I can walk better on different surfaces and above all else, my back is much better. I can stand up straight again and move more steadily. The shoes have improved my entire back and obviously my back muscles as well. I would say now that it’s OK again.

Ursula Langel from Thun, Switzerland

Samuel Gerber from Switzerland

I would recommend it to virtually anybody who has the same complaints that we had. A lot of people suffer from them, and they really wouldn’t have to if they just opted for a shoe that naturally fitted their body, and only wore that. You can prevent a lot of pain and other ailments that you wouldn’t be able to do anything about otherwise. You don’t always have to wear the shoe, but make sure that the entire foot mechanism is really put to good use, because wearing the standard shoes on the market nowadays makes it almost impossible for the foot to move naturally. That will only happen if you wear these shoes, and that’s when you’ll find out what you’ve been missing out on.

Samuel Gerber from Switzerland

Hans-Peter Schmid from Zurich, Switzerland

Last autumn after a half-marathon I developed severe muscle stiffness and also tendonitis. I was in quite a lot of pain when I walked. The amount of pain was significantly reduced and that’s largely down to the kyBoot. If I ever had to wear normal shoes it was very uncomfortable. I was desperate for my kyBoot shoes. You really have to try them out and feel it for yourself to know what I’m talking about. It never ceases to amaze me how you can offset and reduce pain in the musculoskeletal system.

Hans-Peter Schmid from Zurich, Switzerland

Rosalba Jäggi from Switzerland

I sense that my foot, even when it doesn’t work so well anymore, wants to sense what’s on the ground. A stiff sole doesn’t convey that information. Because this information was lacking, I would sometimes fall. With these shoes, I have a good sense of the ground. My foot is always trying to do exactly that, even if it no longer can. It wants to achieve balance, and now it can with the support of this sole, and that’s amazing. For me, it’s a different quality of life. It gives me hope for myself again and the confidence to move around.

Rosalba Jäggi from Switzerland

Hotel guest Paladina Ticino, Switzerland

Michele, you recently started wearing new shoes, kyBoot shoes in fact. What kinds of problems had you previously been having with your feet? I was almost completely unable to walk. I was in severe pain, but I must say it’s been a dream since I started wearing these kyBoot shoes. I can move around normally again and even jump up and down. Of course, you have to get used to them. What kind of a problem did you have?Splayfeet. How long have you been wearing the shoes? I’ve been wearing them for a good three months. I have to say, they are really superb. Are you pain-free now? Yes, I don’t have any pain during the day. When I walk around barefoot in the evenings, my problems come back to haunt me.

Wilfried Franz from Berlin, Germany

These shoes make walking much more fun, which is why I take a lot more walks these days.

Wilfried Franz from Berlin, Germany

Roland Diewald from Germany

It was a soft and comfortable feeling. I actually felt very comfortable from the very beginning. I tried walking around in the shoes at this shop for 15 minutes. Then I walked out onto the street right away and wore the shoes all day. I continued to walk, taking tiny steps, feeling very comfortable in the shoes. The main advantage by far is the fact that I don’t stumble anymore. I used to always get caught, either at my toes  or at my heels, which made me skid. Walking is now very pleasant and soft, even for the stump. I no longer feel the hard impact on my knee or stump. It is simply a wonderful, soothing feeling all around.

Roland Diewald from Germany

Jürgen Zeller from Germany

I am so impressed by the kyBoot. I will never buy myself any other shoe again. That simply won’t do. Once you try the kyBoot, you can never turn back. I can only say positive things about my experiences with the shoe. As I said, I will never wear another shoe brand again.

Jürgen Zeller from Germany

Janine Schmid from Switzerland

My husband has a pair of kyBoot shoes and I was quite jealous of him because they were so comfortable, particularly the footbed. I often wear kyBoot shoes. When I developed hip problems, I was only barely able to walk a few hundred metres to the supermarket. That all changed when I got these shoes. Now I can go walking again.

Janine Schmid from Switzerland

Jürgen Zeller from Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany

I had both my legs amputated at the thigh 25 years ago, and two years ago I had the latest high-tech prosthetics fitted. I’d hoped to be able to finally walk better with them but sadly this wasn’t the case and I was left disappointed. Despite the modern technology, which cost me €90,000, I still couldn’t walk on cobblestones.  But then I found the kyBoot shoes online. At first I was unsure about the soft sole of the kyBoot shoes but I discovered a completely new feeling after walking just a few steps. I felt like I could feel every millimetre of the ground. It was incredible that the prosthetic foot unexpectedly began to work and the kyBoot shoes perfected the entire roll-off phase of the foot. Getting up from a chair or out of the car has also proven to be much easier. I don’t slip on wet surfaces or snow anymore thanks to the kyBoot shoes.  I already have four pairs of kyBoot shoes now and cobblestones are no longer a problem!

Pius Simbürger, conductor Uttwil Musical Society, Switzerland

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.

Pius Simbürger, conductor Uttwil Musical Society, 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

Roland Diewald from Germany

I feel much lighter and smoother when I’m walking. The shoe has changed my whole life.

Aillyn Ang, Director at 320 Below, Singapore

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.

Aillyn Ang, Director at 320 Below, Singapore

Josef Lingenhöle, gynaecologist from Switzerland

It feels rather unstable. And you notice its effect because it forces you to move differently. It’s just a small adjustment, but it teaches you to walk more purposefully. You get used to the feeling very quickly. It feels very pleasant and comfortable. This is why I began to feel very well in these shoes at my practice after a short transition period. Now I always wear kyBoot shoes at my practice and I feel very comfortable in them.

Josef Lingenhöle, gynaecologist from Switzerland

Leo Schranzer, chef at Stütlihus in Grabs, Switzerland

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.

Leo Schranzer, chef at Stütlihus in Grabs, Switzerland

Romy Ziltener, Weesen am Walensee, Switzerland

I notice that I'm deliberately moving differently. A bit more gently and better. I'm a housewife; I don't go jogging, but mopping is my exercise, and that's my jogging, really. I bend my knees a lot doing it, and I think the kyBoot helps a lot with that. The shoes help me get it done. They're almost like slightly larger trainers.

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.

Walking was lovely, really pleasant. It felt so soft, like on a gym mat. Until then I'd never come across a shoe with a feeling like that. At first I felt the muscles in my legs, but I found it much easier to walk than before. It was pleasant, and much more fun again.

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

The shoes are suitable for walking on cobbles or in the woods, and they’re great in winter when the ground is slippery. You won’t slip in these shoes when the ground is slippery. This used to happen to me a lot with other shoes and I would always fall over. It’s never happened with these shoes.

I damaged my knees early on, when I was young. I didn't look out for my knees enough when riding my motorbike; they often got too cold. So I had to deal with knee problems from early on. Because of the hard sole in my work shoes, I very often had knee trouble in the evening. It's got much better since I've worn kyBoot shoes. The knee pain hasn't gone away entirely, but it really makes a big difference.
