kybun Opinions

The relief from plantar fasciitis is good. I worry I’ll never be able to go back to all my other shoes but kybun shoes have already changed my life for the better.

Kate Malone MBE, Ceramicist from England

The kybun shoe gives me stability and comfort that enables me to walk longer and further without discomfort.

Dr. Neil Roberts, retired GP from England

I have been a polyarthritis and soft tissue rheumatism patient for many years and have had quite a few attempts with orthopedically converted shoes and insoles that never quite fit properly, despite repeated modifications. Walking for any length of time caused me severe pain. As a dog owner and passionate hiker, I depend on being able to walk effectively. A colleague of mine first introduced me to the kybun shoe. Since then, I have been enjoying my dog walking without pain. At one point, I had to go back to orthopaedic shoes because I also had a hallux and a hammertoe. Very quickly I started to experience pain in the affected foot, knee issues and lower back problems. I immediately switched back to the kybun shoe and now I can walk pain-free again. Longer hikes are also possible and that includes walking downhill!

Cornelia Heizmann from Switzerland

I owe so much to the kybun shoe for making the pain from my serious injury a distant memory. Since I started wearing the shoe, my limp has practically disappeared.

Alex Tachie-Mensah, Ex Professional Footballer, Andwil TG, Switzerland

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help! kybun shoes have been a tremendous help to me on my path to recovery and I am extremely grateful for your support.

Tatjana Stiffler Swiss cross-country skiing

"I am 74 years old and a passionate pilgrim. I first wore the kybun shoe on my last 250-mile walk along the French Way. Walking was very pleasant and my knee pain was a thing of the past. I was especially surprised at how cushioned and agreeable it feels to walk on asphalt. I could feel the kybun shoe strengthening the muscles in my legs and feet. I now only ever wear my sandals or my kybun shoes."

Walter Keller, pensioner, Bischofszell, Switzerland

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.

Uri Salzinger, ex-pilot from Spoleto, Italy

I can't recommend kybun shoes highly enough. I am now 76 and have been a long distance walker and country dancer for many years. In that time I have tried so many shoes and my kybun shoes are quite the best. They are so comfortable that I wear them all the time for walking, gardening, zumba dancing and housework.  They are as comfortable as the softest slippers and yet tough enough for a 10mile cross country walk. I also have a physiotherapist friend who is very impressed by the shoes shock absorbing  properties and the supportive fit which makes them ideal for ageing joints.

Margaret from England

I am 81 years old and suffer from painful arthrosis in my right ankle joint. Nevertheless, I have retained the power of positive thinking and the belief in relative physical well-being through exercise. In the elegant kybun shoe I found the shoe that gives the foot its full freedom of movement and strengthens it without getting tired. For me it is an indispensable source of strength in old age and a true gift.

Liliane Schär, Author, Wil SG, Switzerland

Ich trage die kybun Schuhe bei meiner Arbeit im Verkauf und in der Werkstatt. Zudem absolviere ich mein regeneratives Lauftraining mit dem Modell Magglingen um damit meinen Körper von den harten Strapazen optimal zu entlasten.
