We offer two adaptation / modifications variants that allow almost all customers with leg length inequality to experience the ‘walk-on-air’ feeling for themselves. Each has its advantages and disadvantages.
Adapting the kybun shoe is only recommended for anatomical leg length inequality. So please see below for options to raise or lift the kybun shoe for your needs:
First variant: Elevation insert
- Optimal variant for less than 2 cm leg length inequality.
- Advantages: Cheap, removable, does not change shoe appearance or effectiveness
- Disadvantages: Depending on the shoe and the foot, there may be insufficient volume in the shoe, possibly necessitating a broadening of the kybun shoe, and in some cases reducing comfort.
- Maximum leg length difference that can be compensated for is approx. 13 mm.
- Price depends on sole height. Approx. 15 to 45 Swiss francs
Second variant: Sole elevation.
- Best option for inequality greater than 2 cm
- Effectiveness scarcely impaired
- Longevity may be reduced
- Loss of guarantee
- No height limit, in theory
- Available for every model, including used kybun shoes.
- Price depends on sole height (for example, 20 mm costs 191 Swiss francs.)
Elevation inserts are available directly from a kybun partner, who will contact kybun AG and order them.
Sole elevation is a little more complicated. It is important to note that the best result can only be guaranteed if measurements are taken and a personal consultation takes place in the tower in Roggwil. Experience has shown that ‘anonymous’ sole thickening without direct contact can be problematic because each foot is unique, and countless factors affecting fit and customer satisfaction must be taken into account. Without direct contact, the uniqueness of each customer can only be catered to in a limited way.
