«Bakers might make the best rolls, but Müller makes the best shoes»

For many bakers, aching feet, tension and back pain are part and parcel of their daily routine.

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.

I believe that the kyBoot shoe can absorb the impact of walking, which is exactly what makes it easier to move gently. Personal testimonies show that women benefit from the cushioning effects on their joints not only during their pregnancy but afterwards as well. The kyBoot shoes can also help people who already have problems. For example, people who have had a knee operation or are already experiencing pain in their musculoskeletal system can benefit tremendously from wearing kyBoot shoes.

I would highly recommend wearing kybun shoes during pregnancy. For me, it was the perfect shoe to wear during the day to relieve the increased pressure on my feet and other joints and gently strengthen my body at the same time. I often felt physically tired, but my kybun shoes motivated me to keep moving and remain active during my entire pregnancy. Walking is so comfortable that even on days when you’re tired, you still feel like walking for a few kilometres. And you feel very fit afterwards. Another thing I love about kybun shoes is how they activated circulation in my legs. I suffered from circulatory problems and would often suddenly feel a strong, shooting dizziness sensation, particularly in the mornings. That’s why I was so happy to find a shoe that activated my circulation! Wearing the shows, together with surgical stockings, really made me feel a lot better. I never had the back pain that many pregnant women suffer from. I don’t know if I was just lucky or if it was thanks to my daily exercise in my kybun shoes. I’m pregnant now for the second time and enjoying walking in my kybun shoe to relieve the strain on my body and exercise at the same time.

How did you find out about the consultation day? We visited the headquarters here in Roggwil. We had a look around for ourselves. We heard about it from lots of different people. We tried on some shoes here. All it took was 10 or 20 minutes. We felt really good in them and decided to buy them. Then we tried them out in day-to-day life. After wearing these shoes for six months, I can now say for sure that it’s much better than it was. How would you describe how it feels to wear kybun shoes? Well, how can I describe it? It feels as though you’re walking on a cloud. The only disadvantage is that you walk a bit unevenly to start with. But you get used to it. Other than that, they are very warm. I was still having problems with my left leg. I used to walk with my foot tilted outwards. That has straightened up since I’ve been wearing these shoes. The pain has also disappeared. I used to have a painful knee, probably for that reason. The doctor said he’d give me an injection for it. Then I enquired about it and he said that one cortisone injection lasts three months. It’s four months with another method, and then you have to get it again. So I decided to leave it for a while. I was exercising anyway and moving my leg about. And now I’ve got these shoes and it’s been fine ever since. Would you recommend kybun shoes to others? Yes, definitely! We just recommended them to someone earlier today. He was staying with us but was heading on to Germany and said he’d look for some in Cologne.
