Quality Notice / Warranty
The elasticity of the kyBoot sole will remain even after intensive use.
Depending on the ground and the body weight, the sole is designed for about four million steps. You will only notice that the sole
is getting a bit softer in the course of time. However, this does not
denote a deterioration of quality. The sole of the kyBoot is slightly
more sensitive than that of a „normal“ shoe.
We recommend the kyBoot for walking and light jogging. Do not
wear it during rigorous athletic activities. Protect the kyBoot from
pointed and sharp objects as these could damage the material.
It is your responsibility to check your kyBoots carefully for any defects upon delivery, before first using them. If any defects are not
reported within 7 days the statutory guarantee expires.
kybun undertakes a material warranty for 12 months starting on
the billing date for defects (production defects) which were not
discernible despite a careful check. For the warranty to come into
force the purchase price must have been paid in full.
The warranty process takes place according to the kybun AG returns management system, which takes into account wear and tear
during the products’ expected lifetime. In other words, when new
products are defective they are repaired or replaced, and in the
case of used items you can purchase a new product at a reduced
price, depending on the defect in question and the condition of
the product.
Recommendations for Care
The leather of the kyBoot is a high quality natural material. Regular
cleaning and care guarantee a long life period. Do not use any
sour or alkaline agents but solely mild washing and care products.
Aggressive fluids such as turpentine, household cleaner and similar
substances are not suitable for cleaning the kyBoot. Only clean the
kyBoot by hand and avoid water entering the shoe. Use a suitable
leather care product after cleaning.
Should water get into the kyBoot, first shake out the water thoroughly. Then remove the remaining fluid with a (liquid) vacuum
cleaner. Leave the kyBoot to dry at room temperature. Avoid strong
or direct heat because the sole and upper leather can be damaged.
Do not wash in washing machines.

kybun MechanoTherapie
In the nineties the Swiss man Karl
Müller discovered the health enhancing
advantages of walking on soft-buoyant
loamy ground when he lived in the
middle of the rice paddies in Korea.
It was his goal to develop the perfect
rice paddy feeling for modern man‘s
walking and standing in everyday life
because the therapeutic effect increases the more the feeling on the foot
resembles the soft-buoyant rice paddy.
After extensive research Müller and his
team succeeded in perfectly imitating
the rice paddy feeling. He developed
the kybun MechanoTherapy with the three components kyBounder, kyBoot und kyTrainer.
With the kybun MechanoTherapy you can bring the sense of wellbeing and the effect of the soft-buoyant natural ground to your
daily routine. Standing on the soft-buoyant spring base kyBounder
and actively walking on the kyBoot air cushion sole exercises the
foot and leg muscles with every step, brings the body into an upright position, relaxes the muscles, is easy on the joints and relieves
venous pressure. On the soft-buoyant material the foot has the full
mobility and is being strengthened without tiring.
The Foot - Key to Every Healthy Body
Disorders of the back, hip, knee, foot and veins well as falls at an
advanced age are prevalent. The cause is mostly a lack of strength,
coordination and mobility of the foot. Walking on flat surfaces in
shoes with (impeding) heels limits the movement of the food and
weakens your musculature. When walking, the marginal use of the
foot is compensated by use of the hip.
This natural cooperation between foot and hip motor activity leads
to tension, muscular dysbalance as well as relieving and abnormal
postures which intensify in the course of time.
Orthopedic complaints, vein problems and falls at an advanced age
are therefore only symptoms of a lack of daily exercise of the feet
on natural ground for which man was built. The analysis of the upright posture of primitive people shows that their posture is directly
linked to the vigorous footwork which results from daily walking on
natural ground. Up to an old age they do not develop complaints of
their musculoskeletal system.
Change of the Posture through
strengthening of the Foot
L’intégration de la thérapie mécanique de kybun dans la vie quotidienne fortifie le moteur du pied, de sorte que le
moteur de la hanche est soulagé en marchant
et les forces actives de l’appareil locomoteur se
déplacent du domaine de la hanche / bassin vers
les pieds. Il y a un changement de la marche
debout orienté vers le pied dans lequel le
corps sort de la position de se ménager et de
flexion et va vers l’extension complète et naturelle, à laquelle tous les
mouvements d’articulation (p.ex.
extension du genou) sont accomplis complètement.
Le changement à une démarche orientée vers le pied est
une mesure efficace pour pouvoir
obtenir un soulagement de la douleur à des
indications médicales très répandues (p.ex.
épine calcanéenne, Hallux). Il n’y pas que les
symptômes sont soulagés, mais également
les raisons sont traitées - sauf pour des maladies diagnostiquées.
Advice on Use and Initial
The kyBoot exercises the muscles and the coordination. Wearing of the kyBoot changes
the forces of the ligaments, muscles, fibers
and joints. This provokes a positive change
of the posture and the walking pattern. During
the adjustment, some people may show reactions at the beginning,
e.g. pain or inflammation.
In this case the kyBoot should only be worn consciously for a short
time to start with, but if possible several times a day. Mostly, the
daily period of wearing can already be increased to one to two
hours after only a few days. After a few weeks, most customers
wear the kyBoot as a comfortable everyday shoe.
The kybun website supplies detailed background information about such initial reactions and further valuable tips for use in case of problems. You can get individual advice
on medical problems at [email protected]
Should your physician not recommend the kyBoot or advise against
it, please refer the physician to us, so that our biomechanic or
our medical specialist can inform him or her about the kybun
