I also wear mine at work because we have standing desks. Wearing these shoes means that I spend much more time on my feet. Standing makes a nice change from sitting down all day at the office. It’s super!
I had both my legs amputated at the thigh 25 years ago, and two years ago I had the latest high-tech prosthetics fitted. I’d hoped to be able to finally walk better with them but sadly this wasn’t the case and I was left disappointed. Despite the modern technology, which cost me €90,000, I still couldn’t walk on cobblestones.
But then I found the kybun shoes online. At first I was unsure about the soft sole of the kybun shoes but I discovered a completely new feeling after walking just a few steps. I felt like I could feel every millimetre of the ground. It was incredible that the prosthetic foot unexpectedly began to work and the kybun shoes perfected the entire roll-off phase of the foot. Getting up from a chair or out of the car has also proven to be much easier. I don’t slip on wet surfaces or snow anymore thanks to the kybun shoes.
I already have four pairs of kybun shoes now and cobblestones are no longer a problem!
