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.

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
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!

When you’re standing, you have to be more active; if you’re sitting in a comfortable seat, you tend to feel a bit tired instead.
Christoph Kempter CEO of SOPAC AG in St. Gallen, 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
It feels very comfortable right away. The mat makes it far easier to stay standing. At some point, I found myself feeling tired and needed to move my legs to make it easier to stay standing and not need to sit down again. Soon afterwards, I felt comfortable again.
Nathalie Signer from Switzerland
It was great to try something new, since I often have back pain when I sit for a long time, and my eyes begin to close when I am particularly tired. You are constantly in motion when you are standing on the mat, which makes you feel active and keeps you more awake. It leaves a tingling sensation afterwards – I feel like I’ve just received a foot massage. I think it’s great.
Leandra Kissling from Switzerland
I feel much less tired, so it makes things a lot easier in the evenings, and my feet don’t ache as much. In fact they hardly ever ache any more.
Judith Lüchinger Staubern restaurant, Switzerland
I notice that I am very light on my feet and never get tired. I can work the entire day and have no pain when I wake up the next morning. Before I started using the kybun shoe, I would experience cramping and had a hard time standing up the next morning. That’s why it’s a real plus to feel good and always have the sensation of floating ever so slightly.
Marco Sessa from Switzerland
kybun shoes facilitate active, healthy movement in everyday life. Whether you are walking or standing, it trains your deep inner muscles, protects your joints and strengthens your muscles. It also relaxes the spine, activates the blood circulation and reduces fatigue.
Dr med. Heinz Lüscher, Vital Substances Medicine, from Herisau, 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.
Werner Keusen sells specialist Italian food, Switzerland
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 kybun shoe two years ago, this is not a problem anymore.
Håkan Hagerman, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden
In December 2014 I bought a pair of kybun shoes and after about 14 days my sciatica pain disappeared completely. Subsequently, I purchase then one more pair for having little switching. Another change I have noted is that I am now able to go over much longer distances without getting tired. All thanks kybun shoe system. So now that summer is approaching I bought a pair of kybun sandals so I am ready for it! Greetings from a very satisfied customer
Karin Obel from Dänemark
I was introduced to kybun shoe 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
I would highly recommend wearing kybun 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 kybun 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 kybun 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 kybun shoes. I’m pregnant now for the second time and enjoying walking in my kybun shoe to relieve the strain on my body and exercise at the same time.

Wearing kybun shoes feels like walking on air. I wear them while travelling and it makes walking long distances an ease. Best part was I wore the kybun shoe 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 kybun shoe made this experience very enjoyable as I felt much less fatigue.

When you're sitting your legs sometimes fall asleep, but that doesn't happen when you stand, and your feet are more comfy.
Pupil at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland
I can walk for 10 hours without my feet getting tired. Then it starts in other places, but not in your feet.
Agathe Willi, works in catering and service, Switzerland
It feels very soft in them when you walk; you're comfortable all day and don't get tired. They have a good sole and are fine if I go out with the dogs in the rain and wet grass. I don't then have to go home to put on new shoes: they last it out.
Imelda Angehrn, dog breeder from Gossau, 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
I've got a mat at home, for my high desk. Sometimes at work. Then you can stand for longer, definitely. Once you've had a while to get used to it. It's like exercise, when you've used your muscles for a long time. If you just exercise every now and then, you tend to get tired faster. Your muscles ache or you feel it in your calves. But otherwise, I think the mat can have a supportive effect. You can stand more comfortably and for longer.

They're light, they're simply light and they don't make your legs tired. That's the best thing.
Santo Palamara, owner of Friulana Osteria and Pizzeria, Munich, Germany
At first I often felt tired and my muscles ached. One reason was no doubt that I wore the shoes all day. I'd recommend that older People should start out more slowly. A young person can wear the shoes all day without any trouble. The aching muscles are nothing compared to the pain I used to have.
Heidi Stäger, Owner Cleaning Company, Gais, Switzerland
It's a great added benefit. I'm no longer reliant on those orthopedic insoles. feel good, am more relaxed as I walk and feel far less tired in the evening.
Rene Leuppi, state-certified insurance specialist, Switzerland
I have to say that I made tremendous progress within three months. I have to say that I made tremendous progress within three months. I was also able to walk evenly again, which I couldn’t do before. I constantly had to go easy and I didn’t have to do that afterwards. Now it did take 3 months, it didn’t happen overnight.
Ursula Langel from Thun, Switzerland
I am 81 years old and suffer from painful arthrosis in my right ankle joint. Nevertheless, I have retained the power of positive thinking and the belief in relative physical well-being through exercise. In the elegant kybun shoe I found the shoe that gives the foot its full freedom of movement and strengthens it without getting tired. For me it is an indispensable source of strength in old age and a true gift.
Liliane Schär, Author, Wil SG, Switzerland
It took about three days to get used to it; no more, surprisingly enough. At the start your legs and hips just felt a bit more tired than usual. After that it was great. You couldn't ask for more; you feel relaxed and upbeat. You know that your back muscles are being strengthened and maybe even more. I'd recommend it to anyone. Watch the video
Peter Rahm, Hallau, Switzerland
If I wear kyBoot shoes all week at work, I have a restful weekend. Before, it was the opposite: when I wore hard shoes and walked round in them all week, I was tired at the weekend, as my body couldn't take it any more and was totally exhausted.
Peter Meier, founder of MP Garage in Au, Switzerland
I wear these shoes every day and they simply go on and on and on – and it's amazing how they don't get worn out, these kybun shoes. They are comfortable, not like hard shoes. Your feet aren't tired out in the evening: you feel rested and can go out jogging again in the evening. Simply a great product! Watch the video
Josias Noll, community service-providing, Uster, 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
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
I used to fall asleep before school was over and I would wake up again when it became very loud. But now I don’t fall asleep anymore, because I need to stay standing.
Pupil at the Neumark School, Germany
Somehow it keeps you moving and this means you don’t become tired so quickly.
