kybun Opinions

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.

Rebecca Bänziger, baker-confectioner and saleswoman Winterthur, Switzerland

I always used to have very heavy legs and since I’ve worked in these, I don’t have them anymore.

Urs Gerber, owner Holzofe Grabebeck Winterthur, Switzerland

I think everyone should wear this type of shoe. It’s because I have to stand a lot at work. We’re here for eight to nine hours every day and most people wear shoes that they don’t like anymore or trainers with closed toes. I don’t know how to describe what it feels like to wear these shoes. It’s difficult to explain; it’s like being on a cloud.

You can buy your bread rolls in any shop, or you can come to our bakery to buy them. We do things a little differently compared to all the other shops, and that’s why our bread rolls are as good as they are. They may cost a little more, but just like these shoes, you’ll be back for more. Customers come back to buy a bread roll, and I’m going to continue buying and wearing kybun shoes.

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.

Hermann Baur from Switzerland

Really good branded products always cost more, that’s how it is. When I saw the workmanship I knew why they cost a bit more. They are really good. I have been wearing mine for around six years and they’re still in good shape.

So, right now I’m actually alone at this BEA. For this event, I have to spend ten days in a row on my feet nearly all day. I don’t spend that much time standing at work, so I’m not used to it at all. That’s why, in the past, I always experienced leg pain at trade fairs like this. I don’t anymore, though.

Hermann Baur from Switzerland

Urs Gerber, owner Holzofe Grabebeck Winterthur, Switzerland

I put them on, thought they were great and wanted to get this type of shoe. At first I thought they were expensive, as I never usually buy shoes that cost this much – maybe my wife would. But it was well worth it in the end and I have bought three or four pairs since.

Rebecca Bänziger, baker-confectioner and saleswoman Winterthur, Switzerland

I stand more upright and because you have to maintain your balance, my musculature has also improved.

Oliver Martin owner Martin Confiserie, 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.

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.

Wherever I’m going, I enjoy walking in them because they are so comfy. You can walk on stony ground and up and down stairs without a problem.

Oliver Martin owner Martin Confiserie, Switzerland

My feet never freeze when I wear it; even when it’s minus five degrees outside. You just pull on a good pair of socks and waterproof the shoe every now and then. I started waterproofing it on very snowy days. Keeping my feet warm and dry has helped me a lot.

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.

Håkan Hagerman, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden

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 kyBoot two years ago, this is not a problem anymore.

Arash Shirkhan, staff members at the Elgiganten Megastore in Helsingborg, Sweden

Very pleasant to walk with, like walking on clouds. I’ve had them for a year now and they´re still in super condition. Before, when I had normal shoes, even good training shoes, my feet used to hurt terribly when I got home from a normal 12hr working day. But not anymore. It is certainly a big difference.

Galina Babarika from Czech Republik

I have scoliosis since childhood, probably as a result of 1 cm one leg short, I'm still living with pain (in the back, below the right shoulder blade, then began to manifest pain in the hip). I did not know nothing about Swiss footwear brand kybun. Fortuitously, I met a man that works with the company kybun. I studied the technology and started with trust to wear shoes kyBoot. After one year and two months since I got shoes kyBoot, I can 100% certainty that biomechanoterapi works. No pain under the shoulder blade! I have no pain in the hip, strengthened stability in the legs. I thank God that he took care of my health and gave me new friends.

I can’t think of anything about these shoes that could be improved. If they were taken away from me, I would quit. They are so important. I feel happy every time I put them on and walk in them. They just work, almost of their own accord. I don’t have to exert myself when I walk in them. I don’t have to concentrate to walk five or six kilometres in them. I can walk with complete freedom. The shoes relax my whole body, which enables me to enjoy life! They are a lifeline. As you get older, you start to value this sort of thing.

It used to be extremely hard for me to stand all day and live with the pain. Now it's almost gone entirely.

Jürg Sieber, adviser at Nahrin, Widnau, Switzerland

I wore kyBoot shoes at the Christmas market in Rorschach. I had skiing socks on in the shoes and my feet weren't cold at all. Usually I always had to wear walking boots. But in kyBoot shoes it was wonderful. I've tried it a couple of times now. At the market in Arbon. I felt much better than in walking boots. In any case, it's no good when you have heavy shoes on all day. But in kyBoot shoes it was wonderful.

Gopal RajGuru, Nyon, Switzerland

In my work as a sales trainer, I stand pretty much every day for 8-10 hours. A few years ago, this created a real problem – tremendous pain in my feet. It started with incredibly sharp pain from the first step out of bed in the morning, and built strongly throughout the day, to the point I could barely focus on my work by lunchtime. My doctor told me it was a common ailment that affects people who stand or walk a lot, called plantar fasciitis. For years, I tried everything – softer shoes, inserts to reduce heel shock, sitting during my presentations, even acupuncture, but nothing worked. I spent thousands on these so-called “cures” without any relief. Then one day while walking (painfully) down the street in Oakville, Canada I came across a little sign that advertised “new Swiss shoes that promised tremendous walking comfort”. Inside the pharmacy, a very nice woman introduced me to the kyBoot. Wow, the pain in my heels was already less after just a couple of hours in the kyBoot. After returning to Switzerland, I bought a pair immediately and started wearing them in my day-to-day work. After 2 weeks, I noticed something amazing… I no longer felt my feet during the day. They were just there, comfortable, and happy. No pain, even after I took off my shoes in the evening. No pain in the morning when getting out of bed. I simply could not believe it. The pain in my feet is simply gone – it’s changed my life. Pain is no longer the focus of my every waking (or walking) minute and I can stand all day in my workshops in total comfort. I am thankful for this amazing invention. These are the most terrific shoes and they really have changed my life!

Jürg Sieber, adviser at Nahrin, Widnau, Switzerland

They're air-cushioned, which is very good for me, as I spend all day on my feet, mostly at markets or trade shows. In these, my feet hurt less - sometimes even not at all. I really enjoy wearing them. The sole is good, too: if you walk as much as I do, you have to throw out normal shoes every six months. I've now had these shoes for three months, but you still can't see any signs of it on the soles. They are comfortable shoes – absolutely wonderful!

There are some who say that it's so spongy, they can hardly climb the stairs any more. But I haven't had any problems at all, myself. It's like when you get bifocals: them first, too. Because the distance is quite different to what your eyes are used to. It's the same with everything. You just have to get used to it a bit. Now, if I'm not wearing kyBoot shoes, I notice the difference straight away: it's like having to walk on boards. That's the problem. Now, if I wear other shoes, of course it's very often harder and sometimes I have the feeling as if I'm walking on the tarmac with bare feet. That's simply the difference. So I'm a huge fan; they're really something great.

Gopal Rajguru, sales coach, Switzerland

I discovered the kyBoot when I was on holiday in Canada. I saw the sign "Swiss Technology walking on air" and my daughter said I should try on the shoes. Before, I wore MBT shoes. But the problem with MBT was that they were made for walking and not for standing. I work as a sales Manager and run workshops on sales techniques, so I have to stand all day long. It's quite different to walking. The dynamics are entirely different. The kyBoot is much better suited to standing. It's incredible to me.
