The 6 crucial elements for beating Plantar Fasciitis

Here are the 6 crucial elements for successful treatment of plantar fasciitis.

Are insoles (arch supports, orthopaedic insole) recommended in the kyBoot?

We are frequently asked this question, and it shows us that many people wear insoles in their ‘normal’ shoes.
We cannot provide a general answer to this question because there are different kinds of insoles and various reasons for wearing them. We explain below when an insole can be worn in the kyBoot and when we advise against it.

Unstable ankles/loose ligaments

kybun allows you to train foot coordination during your everyday routine without spending extra time, and this improves foot proprioception. It facilitates the interplay between muscles and ligaments, actively stabilizing the foot.

Ankle instability can arise if the ligaments have been strained or torn and have remained too loose after growing back together (mechanical instability). It can also be linked to an impairment of the interaction between the joint bones and the surrounding ligaments and muscles. This phenomenon is also described as a kinaesthetic disorder (impairment of proprioception).

Sweaty feet, hot feet (cold feet), foot odor

The kyBoot has been especially designed to allow the foot great freedom of movement and to avoid pinching. The material is very breathable and made largely of genuine leather, and a great deal of the air in the kyBoot is exchanged with each step. This allows the foot to ‘breathe’ in the kyBoot, and if the feet sweat, moisture is removed more easily and foot odour does not develop as quickly.
If you tend more towards cold feet, kyBoot stimulates foot circulation through natural rollover, and the feet become pleasantly warm. The air-cushion soles also absorb the ground cold in the winter.

The kyBounder supports an everyday routine that is healthy for the feet by allowing them freedom of movement while resting on the elastic mat. Inside the shoe, the foot can be bare or clothed in light cotton socks and so get through a day at the office without any problems; foot odour is no longer a concern.

Achilles tendon problems

In the kyBoot or on the kyBounder, a natural rollover is possible and the foot can move freely in all directions. This mobilises the Achilles tendon and releases agglutination in the tendon. Circulation is also promoted, which speeds up healing in the tendon that is poorly supplied with blood.

Achilles tendon complaints can be stubborn and therapy is often protracted. With an inflamed or injured Achilles tendon, the cause needs to be treated in order to alleviate or eliminate the symptoms in the long term.

Plantar fasciitis (heel spur) is related very closely to problems with the Achilles tendon or calf musculature. Since the plantar fascia transitions into the Achilles tendon and calf musculature, the cause of pain may be found in these three areas among others. In most cases, the patient has begun to limp and their whole body is out of balance. Integrated therapy is therefore important with this problem. This means including the entire body (from head to toe) in training.

Ankle osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a common disease in modern western society. On the one hand, pressure on the joints increases the more a person weighs and, on the other hand, strain is placed on the cartilage for much longer than just 50 years ago as life expectancy keeps increasing.Furthermore, civilised human beings spend most of their time walking on flat, hard everyday floors, and most shoe manufacturers follow the philosophy that a shoe has to support and guide the foot, and must have a small heel. However, our feet are not built for this type of stress. This results in massive improper strain and much faster wear. Ankle osteoarthritis, or osteoarthritis in other parts of the foot such as Hallux valgus (bunions), results from years of improper strain.

Metatarsalgia (mid-foot pain)

When the feet are overtaxed, they react with pain when standing and walking. Women, in particular, suffer frequent pain in the front part of the foot. Because of the complex interaction of bones, muscles, nerves and tendons, it is often difficult to determine a single cause.
A natural rollover of the foot is possible in the kyBoot/on the kyBounder and the foot can recover from the pain. The muscles and tendons are gently stretched and strengthened, and the joints mobilized.

Callus, chafing/pressure points, blisters

Chafing on the skin causes the formation of blisters or calluses over time. These reactions are always indicative of excessive exposure of this area of skin. When too much pressure is applied to an area of the foot, the body responds by forming thicker skin. Removing the callus is only a short term solution. Pressure on the area has to be reduced in the long run.

In the kyBoot/on the kyBounder, your foot stands on a soft surface and can move freely in all directions. The shoe material is soft and the shoe is spacious on the inside. This puts an even load on the foot, without pressure points.

Toes falling asleep, tingling, numbness

Tingling and numbness (such as toes falling asleep) are categorised as sensibility or sensory disorders.
Tingling or numbness in the limbs and other parts of the body indicate nervous disorders or insufficient circulation

Over the long term, you can improve foot strength, mobility and circulation in the kyBoot and actively do something about your toes falling asleep, malpositions and deterioration of your foot and toe joints.

Foot malpositions; flat valgus foot, splayfoot, flatfoot, hollow foot

Congenital or acquired foot deformities constitute a more or less pronounced deviation from the normal foot shape. They fundamentally impair body statics. Knee problems and other complaints often result.

In the kyBoot/on the kyBounder, you can move your feet freely in all directions and thereby regain your natural mobility. You can easily strengthen your feet as part of your daily routine while actively counteracting pain and signs of wear in the joints at the same time.

Osteoarthritis of the big toe/hallux valgus/hallux rigidus

With osteoarthritis in the joint of the big toe, it is important to keep the joint as mobile as possible to enable the continued rollover of the foot over the big toe and so the affected individual does not develop a limp.

The kyBoot and kyBounder help keep the big toe mobile and improve mobility. This maintains a natural gait pattern and protects the higher joints (such as the knees, hips and back).

Burning feet

When the feet are overtaxed, they react with pain when standing and walking. Women in particular often suffer from burning feet. Because of the complex interaction of bones, muscles, nerves and tendons, it is often difficult to determine a single cause.
A natural rollover of the foot is possible in the kyBoot/on the kyBounder and the foot can recover from the burning sensation/pain. The muscles and tendons are gently stretched and strengthened, and the joints mobilised.

kyBoot Sizing and Fit

To get a size recommendation, look for this button next to the photo of the shoe:






About kyBoot Width:

All kyBoot shoes are generally wide (4E). However, there is variance among the models due to 2 factors: 

  1. Sole Type - affects the shape of the shoe
  2. Upper material - affects the lateral flexibility

We therefore make recommendations for each model based on foot shape. If there are any special recommendations - they will be included in the product description.

Special Recommendations:

For the Comfort Sole, Training Sole and Sandal Sole:

  1. Order the same size as the charts below indicate.
  2. Take note if there are any recommendations for the model you chose, and if so follow them. Not all models fit equally.

For the Slimfit Sole:

  1. If your feet are narrow keep the chart size
  2. If you have a wide midfoot order one half size up (e.g. from 8.5 to 9)
  3. If you have a wide forefoot order a full size up (e.g. from 8.5 to 9.5)


Not sure about the size or model? No problem! We'll be happy to advise on the perfect fit at info@kyboot.shoes. We also have a free returns policy - so rest assured we are here to help you find the ideal kyboot for your feet. Click here to contact us.
