kybun Opinions

Hans-Peter Schmid from Zurich, Switzerland

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.

René Meier from Switzerland

I felt very safe wearing these shoes. They had a very steady grip on the rocks, even when I was going downhill, allowing me to descend without slipping at all.

I was wearing the hiking shoe while cleaning. I had the shoe on the whole time standing in water. It still hasn’t dried up out there. Before I knew about kybun, I wore regular shoes to clean. I had to switch them out each season. The sole would always detach from the shoe. The kyBoot is waterproof, so, of course, I treated it like you’d treat any shoe. It kept my feet warm and dry, even far into autumn and winter. It’s still all in one piece, three years down the line.

Hansruedi Siegrist from Switzerland

It works well in the snow, too, and I never slipped. Apparently the profile holds up pretty well.

Peter Zwahlen from Switzerland

As you can imagine, I am very happy with these shoes. They have alleviated this very problematic complaint of mine. And when I am getting around by foot I walk on uneven surfaces like this meadow and other ones. So it is very bumpy underfoot. I always wear these shoes. I even wear them when I go out. And out on the meadow, or for doing gardening. I always wear these shoes. What used to be a very big problem has been eliminated.

Hans-Peter Schmid from Zurich, Switzerland

At that point, I had my doubts. I wondered whether I could even walk in these shoes. The information that I take in from the ground through my feet is really important for me. Because I can’t see the floor or any uneven ground I have to be able to feel what’s under foot through my feet so that I can hold the rest of my body correctly. I was worried that the sole would be too effective and suppress this sensation, preventing me from getting my information from the ground.

Hans-Peter Schmid from Zurich, Switzerland

I was absolutely amazed right from the beginning that it worked and how effective it was. When I step on a stone or uneven ground, I can still feel it despite the absorption in the sole that evens it out.

Tarja Moilanen from Finnland

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!

Veikko Huovinen owner of a restaurant in  Suomussalmi, Finnland

I have suffered feet troubles many years but finally I found shoes that has insole structure flexible enough to my feet. My work requires lot of standing in restaurant and kitchen where is often water and other slipperiness on the floor but I feel safe because my kyBoot are not slipper at all. In these shoes I don't feel my feet strained as in normal work shoes even after long day.

Imelda Angehrn, dog breeder from Gossau, Switzerland

It feels very soft in them when you walk; you're comfortable all day and don't get tired. They have a good sole and are fine if I go out with the dogs in the rain and wet grass. I don't then have to go home to put on new shoes: they last it out.

Marco Hanselmann, lives in Appenzell, Switzerland

The atmospheric humidity in a cheese cellar is very high. The floor is slippery. On a surface like that, you need shoes with grip. Most shoes slip on the wet cellar floor. In kyBoot shoes, though, I have great grip, and they last for ages.

Roger Christen from Switzerland

This shoe has a great grip – I was surprised to see that. I’ve worn my kybun hiking shoes at a ski resort, too. It was great. They’re also great in here, since I often stand in the same spots. The sole has an amazing grip to it.

Roger Christen from Switzerland

Hansruedi Poschung from Thun, Switzerland

The shoes are suitable for walking on cobbles or in the woods, and they’re great in winter when the ground is slippery. You won’t slip in these shoes when the ground is slippery. This used to happen to me a lot with other shoes and I would always fall over. It’s never happened with these shoes.

Peter Meier, founder of MP Garage in Au, Switzerland

The sole is excellent: it's very resistant, even against chemicals. No damage at all. The kyBoot has a fine tread, which is more of an advantage to us, as the sole is soft and adapts to every bump.
