I came across kyBoot because I had back pain. My back had to deal with frequent jarring and it was painful. Then a customer pointed them out to me. She said I should try out softer shoes for a change. Then I tried out the kyBoot, and it got much better within a short time.
My daughter was aware of the shoes and said I should go to the Zurich Oberland region and try on a pair. I wasn’t that keen because I didn’t think they would work. When I had to go to hospital because of my foot problem, she told me about the shoes there, too. Then she said she’d have a look and see if they had kyBoot shoes in Bern, too. She said the shop was really close by and we should drop in. We asked if I could try on a pair and I was given a lovely pair of red shoes. I slipped them on and my knee pain completely disappeared.
When the assistant was advising me I realised that for the first time I was wearing shoes that didn't pinch. So I decided to buy a pair. When I got talking to my orthopaedist, he was very sceptical and said that lots of people came back to him disappointed by kyBoot shoes, complaining of even greater pain. I took the warning seriously and asked myself what that might be all about. When you feel better, you tend to get quite fussy. I thought that was probably the mistake people were making. If you wear insoles for a long time, your foot muscles are weak. So I started wearing the kyBoot and the shoe with insoles alternately, and gradually built up the intensity. I could feel my whole body getting fitter. Today I spend one day a week out with the dogs and might walk up to five-and-a-half hours. That's already possible, even though I've only been wearing the kyBoot a short time. At the end of the day I can feel it in my feet, but the next day it's OK again.
