In 1996 the engineer Karl Müller invented the MBT shoe, revolutionising the shoe industry with its "rolling sole". After the sale of MBT in September 2006 Karl Müller developed the elastic-springy trampoline sole of his new brand kybun.
With kybun shoes you can experience the unique walk-on-air feeling immediately. "In kybun, you don't walk: you float. The walk-on-air feeling is unique", explains Karl Müller. Inside the kybun shoe, the foot rests directly on a springy, elastic sole, which provides the foot with maximum freedom of movement. This elasticity and flexibility in all directions is excellent training for the musculature and you feel how well it absorbs, shocks and adapts to your feet. Whether at work or at home, on a hike, walking around town, kybun shoes are so comfortable to wear that you’ll never want to take them off.
kybun shoes make exercising fun
Dr med. Christian Sommer, a consultant for orthopaedic surgery, believes that the kybun shoe is the ideal training device for everyday life. It soothes the entire musculoskeletal system and relaxes the spine. Eight years after her accident, Erika Wissmann can effortlessly walk again – thanks to the kybun shoe, which is very comfortable to wear. Dr med. Markus Müller can decrease the dose of pain medication he prescribes to his patients with osteoarthritis in their legs thanks to the extraordinary absorption properties of the kybun shoe. Reto Scherrer, who works as a radio and television moderator, is also grateful for the great level of comfort the shoes have brought him. He can now comfortably stay on his feet for as long as ten hours each day.
Everyone can improve their health with kybun shoes – without it even costing them any time.
Inside the kybun shoe, the wearer’s foot rests directly on a soft, elastic sole, which provides the foot with maximum freedom of movement. This elasticity and flexibility in all directions is excellent training for the musculature. kybun shoes protect joints and relieve tension. The kybun shoe is the perfect shoe for people who have foot problems such as bunions or heel spurs, since its soft, elastic material continuously and dynamically adapts to the shape of the sole of the foot.
The special sole also minimises the strain on the back and joints.
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 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 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.
