kybun Opinions

Jiří Šedivý, M.D., head of the Department of Orthopedics, Jihlava Hospital, Czech Republic

kybun shoes ideally combine three important factors of healthy and pleasant walking in shoes – the springiness of every step, comfort – thanks to the perfect shape and spaciousness of the shoe – and easy lower extremities workout and exercise just through regular walking, thanks to the principle of the unstable underfoot. Engaging maximum muscles of lower extremities as well as the torso automatically leads to their strengthening. Involving all muscles in regular walking also results in significant performance boost of the “muscle pump”, which has a wholesome effect on the venous and lymphatic system of lower extremities. Walking in these shoes therefore relieves chronic back and joint pain, is beneficial for overstrained tendons and ligaments and last but not least it can reduce tension and pressure in calves. The main use of kybun shoes is for me walking on hard surfaces – walking to work in the city, intensive city tourism (excursion tours, etc.). But you will greatly benefit from them in lighter terrain as well. Put on the kybun shoes and your feet will be grateful to you!! On top of that, they are just comfy to walk in…

Juhani Turunen from Finnland

After 18 full marathons and several half ones, I recently had to quit running because of pain in the lower back and the legs. The medical diagnosis was Spinal Stenosis. But I never stopped moving. Thanks to the combination of kybun shoes and Pilates, I am able to make long walking-tours and hiking in the wonderful Finnish nature.

Customer from Switzerland

I had trouble walking for almost two years, since I had a herniated disc. Then a friend gave me a pair of these shoes. I wore them regularly when I went out, which helped me walk again. Now everything’s good again. Thanks to the kybun shoe? Yes, thanks to kybun and my prayers.

When I wore conventional shoes, I had pain in my back and, as you’d expect, in my feet. But the pain has gone now. Disappeared.

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.

Michael Hirte harmonica player, Germany

I recommended the shoes to someone I know. He also had problems with his spine. I met up with him again recently. He showed me that he also had these shoes and said that they work perfectly and that they’re the absolute best! He feels much better and his pain is gone.

I used to have back problems. I feel like wearing this shoe reduces them. And I feel simply great.

Kurt Zemp from Switzerland

I used to have back problems, but since I got these shoes, things really have improved. You feel as though you are less stable, but it actually makes your body much more stable. I’ve noticed the difference and I’m very happy with the shoes.

Norbert Strittmatter from the Wutach Valley, Germany

Wearing the kybun shoe makes it feel a lot more natural to walk with a prosthetic. It’s gentler on my back, too. It’s especially easier for me to walk down stairs when I’m wearing the kybun shoe. Mr Zeller provided us with fantastic advice – he did an excellent job of answering all of my questions. I would definitely order these shoes again, anytime.

Birthe Eikmeier, CEO (Finance, Personnel, Purchase) at rutec in Syke, Germany

Ever since I started using my kybun mat, I no longer experience back problems in connection with my slipped disc. My back musculature is strong, and the ‘active’ standing position I assume on the mat has had a positive effect on my legs.

Josef Städler glassblower from Switzerland

I have back problems. It would be a struggle if I had to sit down all day or stand all day. This way, I can do a bit of both, which suits me better.

Matthias Schmid, Entrepreneur from Goldach, Switzerland

That being said, back pain relief is not the only reason I love the kybun shoe. I also find walking in the kybun shoe to be more refreshing. It just makes me feel good – plain and simple.

Hansruedi Widmer 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.

Helen Hardegger from Switzerland

I like to wear kybun shoes when I go for a walk in the forest. The shoes have a springy feel to them and they benefit my back.

Toni Geser from Switzerland

In the beginning, I tried doing exercises in the morning. Sometimes strengthening exercises, stretching exercises or movement exercises. Then I thought of going jogging because that’s something I used to do a lot. But I was unable to incorporate it into my daily routine. It took up too much time. Then I came across kybun and stood on the kyBounder, stood on a soft surface and went walking in kyBoot shoes. That’s when it became possible to incorporate exercise into my daily routine, above all into my daily routine at work. I no longer need to take painkillers. I wouldn’t start taking them now either. There’s no need. I feel like my back is really healthy, and I don’t have any pain. I can lift things and travel between 40,000 and 45,000 kilometres every year. I know this isn’t good for me. I also need to lift a lot at work, but I don’t have any problems anymore.

Paul Kammradt from Sollies-Toucas, France

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.

Nicola Waldvogel, teacher at the OZ Buechenwald Gossau in Switzerland

It adds to lessons, as sitting is not good for your back. I think it is a very good thing when the children can stand up and move about. I use them a lot in lessons.

The advantage of these shoes is simplythe health aspect. I don't have any back pain any more – nothing. That's really the advantage.

A sales rep once told me that he didn't have any back trouble any more since wearing kyBoot. I wanted to try them out too, and bought myself a pair of kyBoot shoes. I haven't had any problems since, either!

I've been wearing these shoes for a year and my problems have all gone: no lumbago, nothing. It's just vanished.

Barbara Pledl, works in the Luchsinger butcher’s shop, Switzerland

I have problems with my joints and with my back. It always makes every bone in my body ache. On Saturdays I have to swallow a painkiller to get through the day. That's all in the past with kyBoot. I feel much better.

Dr. Thomas Werlich, general practitioner in Germany

The children are forced to constantly move in order to maintain their balance, which in turn straightens the spine. If they do not make these movements, they fall over. These movements are particularly good for strengthening the back muscles.

Nevin Bozdemir pupil at the Falkschule, Germany

I definitely think it’s good, since it’s good for your spine. It makes it easy to concentrate. I’m also an athlete, so I need to move around in general. I practise Taekwondo, and I need to move around in class. I get kind of fidgety in the classroom.
