Since the beginning of January 2015 I (77 years old) couldn't walk more than 50 meters because of numbness and pain in both legs. I was diagnosed "Central Stenosis" of lumbar spine. I was told by several doctors that I will need to have spinal operation. My wife Stavroula (72 years old) had a similar problem 1 year ago. She couldn’t walk more than 30 meters because of left leg pain. She was diagnosed with “Lateral Stenosis”. She overcame her problem after intense physical therapy, acupuncture, exercise and progressive walking with kybun shoe after her physiotherapist recommended it. After all her treatment she was walking 2 km without rest, thus she suggested me to try first the same approach. After 4 months of therapy I could walk close to 1 km. I hesitated to buy kybun shoe even I liked a lot, as I tried them for one day. My wife tried to persuade me to buy them because as she said they are not ordinary shoes but they are a valuable equipment. I hesitated because of the cost which was almost my half pension. Now two months after wearing these wonderful shoes I feel very satisfied for my decision to buy them. I walk with my wife every day for 75 minutes with a fast pace. We compete with each other about who is going to finish first. Our goal is to walk 10 km a day with kybun shoe in a couple years, when we are going to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.
I'm planning on buying the walking boots as the shaft is slightly higher. But not so much for everyday use as for the holidays. When you really walk or hike longer distances. One reason they're so great is that you don't feel the stones. I usually walk the dogs on a natural path, and then you're happy if you don't feel every stone.
I walked a bit funny initially, and it took some time, but now I don’t have any pains whatsoever in my spine. I’m happy that I have this shoe. I would never give it away! Without a doubt, I would never give these shoes away. I still have other shoes, but I must say that I don’t wear them very often. Thanks to the kybun shoe, I’ve been bringing the dogs for a lot of walks, and that’s been the best thing ever!
