Incredible grip on a range of terrain
Hikers and trekking enthusiasts have confirmed that kyBoot shoes always give you a secure foothold. “I wore a pair of kybun’s Caviar shoes for an eight-week hike through Guatemala and Cuba in the spring of 2010,” says Christoph Reichert. “The last six weeks of the trip were filled with rain, snow, mud, and countless rocky terrains in Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, Argentina. They are the best hiking shoes that I’ve ever had. I didn’t have any blisters, even walking for six to eight hours with a full rucksack. They were simply fantastic, even in wet conditions,” he says in praise of the shoes.
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.
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.
