What does the specialist for orthopaedics and trauma surgery have to say about the kybun concept?
Dr. med. Sabine Bleuel, orthopaedist, trauma, hand and foot surgeon
The real benefit for me is that I’m comfortable when walking and have a lightness to my step. I don’t have a limp despite two surgically repaired hips, and my feet don’t sweat and are never tired. My feet are moving, I feel good and I stand up straight. I no longer hunch over, and my back pain is gone. The kyBoot is everything I had hoped for from a custom shoe.

kybun shoes are the best shoes in the world, and they give me a new quality of life. I am not an amputee, but I had extreme difficulties moving around because I suffer with extremely severe nerve pain. What’s more, the unbalanced strain led to my left foot developing flatfoot and pes valgus deformity. As a result, the inside of my ankle protrudes significantly. It was no longer possible to walk normally. I also had numb toes and paraesthesia in both feet. HAD...
I have been wearing kybun shoes for two months and there have been some changes. I am experiencing significantly less pain and I can generally walk swiftly and without limping. There have been substantial improvements to the paraesthesia and the numbness in my toes. I can now feel what is beneath my feet again – stones, the floor, the folds in my socks. Most nights, I am not in any pain.
If I take the shoes off, however, things become somewhat more problematic.
But I am hopeful that there will be improvements here, too. Thank you so much, Jürgen! Your tremendous
commitment will ensure that lots more people will find out
about the kybun shoe and will hopefully be inspired to try wearing these shoes.

On October 1993 I did a forced landing near an air field at the northern part of Israel. On take off, and few minutes air born I've noticed a sudden engine cut, did a rapidly forced landing in a very bad field for landing, plenty of boulders and rocks. In these circumstances you can choose the right place - you take what you find. Fortunately the passenger didn't suffer any damage,but I broke badly my right ankle. It took me one year and a half of crutches and 3 orthopaedic operations to walk again. Until now I couldn't find suitable shoes though I tryed all possible firms and styles. I could walk, but always with pain and uncomfortable sensation. Two months ago a friend from Israel,and shoed me his shoes, which was of your production. I tried them and felt good. I use those shoes for about one month and a half now,and for the first time after the incident I can walk again without lame ,pain or inconvenience and for relatively long courses even up the hill side. So, in short ,I am very happy now with your shoes and will buy some others for the next winter.

At 66 years old, I have had two hip replacements, a right knee replacement, and have undergone two major back operations. My knees had always been swollen, but once I tried the kybun shoe, they became normal again after two days. Now I can walk for hours without limping. I feel truly alive again.
Paul Kammradt from Sollies-Toucas, France
All my life I have been looking for shoes, these shoes I met by chance after 20 years of searching for comfortable shoes. When I tried the shoes for the first time I had an acute problem in my right foot, a painful spur that caused me to limp. The moment I put my foot in the shoe I had stopped limping. Since then I do not take them off, I only wear them. These shoes have changed my life and improved its quality. They enable me to walk or stand 12 hours a day. I have no pain. All my orthopedic problems are still there but they do not bother me anymore.
