Would you recommend kyBoot shoes to others? Absolutely! I would even recommend them as an excellent product. In my case, I had actually just injured my knee in an accident. They helped me a lot at this time. How did you find out about the consultation day? I’m on the mailing list for the kybun newsletter, which is how I found out that this day was taking place here. Have you had any experience with the soft, springy kybun products? I had already worn MBT shoes before and was quite satisfied. I wore them a lot. I needed new ones so I started looking for a replacement and came across kyBoot. I’m very satisfied with them.

I had tried MBT shoes previously and I wasn’t too happy with them. But with kybun shoes, it’s a great sensation. The main change is the way you stand, which becomes looser and more comfortable, like standing on clay soil.

I had a serious Achilles tendon operation more than a year and a half ago, and they also had to operate on the muscle. Afterwards I didn’t have any feeling in the ankle joint and I was unable to roll the foot over properly. So I needed a shoe that handles the rollover function. The MBT does that, which is why I had the MBT in the first place. The advantage of the kybun shoe is that it not only helps me with the rollover function, but it’s very soft as well. This helped me tremendously in dealing with everyday life.

I already knew about the predecessor MBT shoes and found out about the new style from my colleagues. I was impressed right from the start. I love the feeling of walking on sand or clay. You can experience this feeling in nature, but wearing shoes that give you the feeling all day long is simply amazing.
Judith Brunschwiler from Switzerland
The biggest surprise is their softness. And they adapt perfectly to your feet. So far l'm delighted.

The first attempts to develop MBT shoes were clunky and heavy. They’re more stylish now and there are a lot of styles on offer in Roggwil, where I bought mine. They also look quite sporty. I like the shoes and they’re constantly being improved.
Oliver Künzle from St. Gallen, Switzerland
I've known the kyBoot, and before that MBT, for quite a while, as I've known Karl Müller for many years. When I joined the choir, we had to dress up in white, so I went out looking for white shoes and found a pair of moccasins made for medical staff. But after the long concerts I always had hot, sore feet and my back hurt. I remembered the kyBoot and bought myself a white pair. Emanuel Sieber asked me what I needed the shoes for and whether I worked at the hospital. I explained that I needed the shoes for the choir, and that's how we got talking.

I had back pain, and on top of that my left leg is 2.5 cm too short. I'd tried almost everything. It's a congenital defect. At first I wore MBT shoes. I thought they were the best there is, but I couldn't walk in them. Even the specialists said I couldn't walk in them. I looked a bit further afield and came across the kyBoot. Thanks to someone working at the chemist's, ho let me take the shoes home straight away, I was able to try the shoes out. I wasn't convinced immediately; it felt strange and they "wobbled about” a bit. She actually said that my muscles might ache, but I didn't get that during the trial period, only later. After I'd got over the whole thing, I have to say that they're really great. No more cold feet. We already have three pairs and I'm getting another pair soon.
