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!
Voice over speaker from Montana
The biggest argument in its favour is that it lets you walk in a way that’s easy on the joints. That doesn’t just apply for your knees, but also for your entire gait. It’s comfortable for your body to walk and stand like this. I feel great all around. You feel loose; this is a natural way of walking. You always have good traction, no matter what you’re walking on. You just feel great.

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.

I thought that was a good thing. I can't imagine it won't help. It was pointed out to me that they weren’t hard on the bottom. I suppose it’s just logical that that would make things better. Improvement is practically a given with this padding underneath.
Christine Muchenberger from Switzerland
The most astounding thing with my patient was that she was practically pain-free within a week. This is enough to suggest that the success is a result of wearing the kyBoot. She wasn’t in pain anymore, she was able to move more easily and her movements were more symmetrical again. We were able to focus on the actual problem again, which was essentially getting her knee joint to work properly – the reason that she actually came to me in the first place.
Romeo Botta, Physiotherapist at CTPLAN
I used to play very intensive football but had to stop when I was 20 as I started having knee problems, and from then on I’ve been very restricted in the amount of sport I do or have to play less vigorous sports. I’ve always been aware of the fact that I have to be careful of my knee. So when I came across the kyBoot, it was a solution that allowed me to walk more and do sport for longer periods without getting knee trouble. Obviously I really appreciated that.
Kandid Hofstetter lives in Russia
I’ve been wearing kybun shoes for a very long time, seven or eight years at the very least. I have arthritis in my knees and always had problems with walking and standing. That meant that I was looking for something to relieve my feet. I started off using the kybun mat. I used it for a variety of tasks that involved standing for a long time, such as working in the kitchen. It was very good for my knees. Not long after that, I bought my first pair of kybun shoes. I now have a few different designs. There simply isn’t a better pair of shoes for my sore knees.
Sigrid Eibensteiner from Switzerland
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.
Thomas Schmid client consultation day Roggwil, Switzerland
You simply have to try these shoes on and you’ll understand why. The shoes are so soft and don’t cause any foot, knee or back pain. They are simply the best I’ve ever had and it’s been an incredible discovery.
Irene Millard-Faude lives in Australia
I had an operation on my inner knee joint in January 2014. I realised afterwards that walking in this shoe is extremely good for me. I no longer felt the impact of the ground. I felt like walking in the kybun shoe was very beneficial for my health after the operation.
Margrith Sibold from Switzerland
I’ve been wearing the kybun Schuh for over two years now, for two reasons. Firstly, it got rid of my knee problems, and secondly, because this air-cushion shoe has given me a whole new lease on life. It lets me walk without pain.
Wilfried Franz from Berlin, Germany
The benefit of the shoe is that it absorbs the impact incurred when walking around, which, in turn, relieves the hip and knee joints as well as the heels.
Paul Hoffmann from Switzerland
Anyone who would like to have that soft feeling when they walk, people who need to take care of their joints and anyone who has hip, knee or back problems. I highly recommend trying out these shoes.
Hansruedi Widmer from Switzerland
Doing targeted exercises on the kybun mat allowed me to regain stability in my knee after I had an operation on my cruciate ligament.

I believe that the kyBoot shoe can absorb the impact of walking, which is exactly what makes it easier to move gently. Personal testimonies show that women benefit from the cushioning effects on their joints not only during their pregnancy but afterwards as well. The kyBoot shoes can also help people who already have problems. For example, people who have had a knee operation or are already experiencing pain in their musculoskeletal system can benefit tremendously from wearing kyBoot shoes.
Josef Lingenhöle, gynaecologist from Switzerland
Our hiking group often stood round my wife and me admiring the shoes, particularly because of how the sole adapted so well to the surface and how well we were able to walk. They could hardly believe I had a knee operation in January.
René Meier from Switzerland
I have a problem with my back and on my knees. They were burdened from the weight of my body. At some time I felt my legs to become stronger since trying to balance on the shoes made me exercising them continuously withtout big effort. Wearing them for a long period it makes you feel familiar with this.
Marios Zambelis from Chalcis, Greece
They absorb the impact of your foot very well and there’s no shock to the knees. The shoes are really good for my knee when walking both uphill and downhill.
René Meier from Switzerland
I've already had two slipped discs. And on top of that I have trouble with my knees: I have split kneecaps, which actually isn't that unusual. Lots of people round the world have them. But it has given me a lot of gyp. I used to work in an opera house, and that was physical work. That's why I was forced to give up that job to go back into education or retrain to return to my old job. Since then, I've managed a couple of months without pain. That is, I still get exercise. I strengthen my stomach and back muscles. At first I was quite sceptical about kyBoot shoes, as I didn't like the way they looked. But I told myself that if they might be of benefit, I should at least try them out. Now I never want to be without them again. The feeling I have when I walk and my general wellbeing are quite different.
René Keusen, deputy head of logistics for the Cantonal Court of Zurich, 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
At first you think it's really wobbly, but today I know that it somehow helps strengthen your muscles even better. And I really haven't had any Problems with my knee any more: nothing. It's very good.
Robert Spitz, sales representative for Nahrin, Switzerland
I was unfortunate to get had some knee injuries, but the kybun shoe takes the pressure off my joints and relieves them.
Benji von Ah, Swiss Alpine wrestler from Oberwald, Switzerland
I used to be a television technician, and I developed knee problems. Any new shoes that came out… there is nothing I haven’t tried. For the first time there is something which truly solved my problem. My father who is 76 could hardly walk, and today he walks freely and enjoys the shoes. He doesn't take them off, even on the Sabath. I intend to buy the entire collection.
Eli Vaknin, Businessman, Beit Dagan, Israel
It was a skiing accident. I was skiing off-piste and had an accident. I jumped over a ridge and landed badly in a small ditch. The accident almost tore apart my whole knee. I was in a very serious situation. The experts thought long and hard about whether or not to operate, as they didn’t know if it would ever get better. That’s why I was very thankful that I had these shoes.
Doris Blum from Bern, Switzerland
These shoes take a load off my knees and back when I’m walking. My postural defect when I walk also affects my joints. With these shoes I can correct my posture. Since the middle of December I have had far less trouble than before. In the night I can sleep much better as I am in far less pain. I can only recommend these shoes.
Robert Dönni, Montlingen, Switzerland
I wear them every day: after all, I'm not 20 anymore. And as you get a bit older you naturally realise that your health comes first. I have long-term carry-over problems with my back and my knees – partly a legacy of my career, which was relatively long, so they certainly support me with that and help me continue to age well. I've now really found that they take the stress off me as after all, you do always have to use and activate even your smallest muscles, so they activate muscle fibres that might have slacked off a bit. And that's probably the key to success. I don't want to get all medical: I don't know enough about that, but I'm simply happy to have these shoes on my feet.
Stephan Lehmann, a former football star and goalkeeper coach, Hergiswil, Switzerland
I can stand in these shoes all day with no trouble at all. If we have to be ready at 3pm though the concert doesn't start until 7pm, I don't feel a thing. I don't have any trouble, either in my back or my knee, and my feet are not sore either. It's really worlds apart, like day and night.
Roger Stauffer, sings bass in the Gossau gospel choir, Switzerland
I'd recommend the kyBoot to anyone. Especially if you have trouble with your knees or back. It gives you much greater quality of life. Until now, I've never found any other shoe that's been of as much help.
Marco Hanselmann, lives in Appenzell, Switzerland
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.
