These ailments are primarily caused by long hours of standing, lifting, carrying heavy loads and putting too much strain on one side of the body.
kybun shoes are comfortable and healthy, making them perfect for bakers to wear at work. The kybun shoes feature a unique air cushion sole. This provides optimal shock absorption and noticeably reduces stress on the body.
«You can walk around comfortably and stay on your feet without any pain. The kybun shoes are more than just a comfy treat for your feet,» says a highly impressed Daniel Jakob, head of health and safety at the Swiss Association of Master Bakers and Confectioners.
The kybun shoe effectively meets the demands of the food sector. The soles are abrasion resistant and notably non-slip, providing a secure grip and preventing accidents in the workplace. The foot climate system ensures optimal moisture and temperature regulation.
More and more bakers are opting to wear kybun shoes. Chantal Studer is an apprentice at Igu Beck in Recherswil, Switzerland, and only has good things to say about how comfortable the shoes are to walk in. «kybun shoes are very comfortable to wear and have an excellent grip, even on smooth surfaces. I think kybun shoes make the best work shoes».
All 20 employees at the Füger bakery in Mörschwil, Switzerland, wear the feel-good shoes.
«We might make the best rolls, but Müller makes the best shoes,»jokes Beda Füger. He recommends kybun shoes for avoiding back problems and knee pain caused by long periods of standing. «When I wear kybun shoes, I don’t end up with tired legs and swollen feet at the end of the day, even after a 12-hour shift,» the master baker happily reports.
"Proprioception (our sense of our body's movements and relative position) and proprioceptive training are very important to avoid injury. The kybun shoe is an effective tool for such training sessions; it can be worn the whole time and is very comfortable. It means that you are involved in a kind of constant training session without having to make a lot of effort. In the end I was able to try out the effect myself. Without any specific therapy, just from wearing the kybun shoe, I was able to cure my Achilles tendonitis: the unstable sole strengthened the muscles stabilising my ankle joints, taking the burden off the rest of my overstressed muscles. I recommend the kybun shoe following injuries to the lower extremities, for jobs in standing positions, for sportspeople and for the elderly, to prevent falls."
"I often have bad back pains, so I wear the kybun shoe whenever I can. I love the soft, supple shoe; it feels amazingly comfortable."
