The Truth About Sitting Down - kyBoot

The Truth About Sitting Down

As we enter the second decade of the 21st century, there is one thing nearly all modern people in the west have in common: we sit all the time.

 

Though our great shift towards computer-based work has done great things for productivity, it has, unfortunately, done terrible things for our health. From increased risk of heart disease and obesity in the long term, to sharply hampered cholesterol maintenance in the short term, the negative health effects of sitting are starting to weigh heavily against the benefits. Even the medical field – the greatest advocates and reducing sitting time – is plagued by this new health issue. Though doctors and nurses get plenty of walking time, it usually falls to the secretaries, billers, and coders to do all the sitting. And, as we can see, something has to change.

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)
