These shoes has given me totally new experience of walking. Every step is flexible no matter what surface I'm walking on. Comfort usability has worked as well in slush and icy streets as in -30 degrees. Shoes are not sweaty and I can keep my feet incredibly warm when shoes are used with thin wool sock. Absolutely fabulous shoes!
One benefit that I’ve come across is that when I step awkwardly on uneven ground the kyBoot sole absorbs the impact. You don’t go over on your ankle like you definitely would with a conventional, hard sole. Instead, unevenness under foot such as a stone or tree root is simply absorbed or taken in by the sole and I can walk over it as if there were nothing on the ground.
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.
