A glassblower who suffered from back pain


Josef Städler has a glassblowing studio and a shop that sells glassware in Gossau, Switzerland. He had been suffering from severe back pain for a long time.

This pain has now almost completely gone. His secret? When he is at work, he is always moving around and he wears the Swiss air-cushion shoe from kybun. The soft, springy sole absorbs the impact of his steps, strengthens his muscles and relaxes his body. “These days, I wouldn’t even consider spending a whole day wearing normal, hard shoes,” says Städler. He is glad he discovered the kybun shoe. Thanks to this Swiss invention, the glassblower has a new-found freedom and is constantly in motion. As a result, the back pain he used to feel is now almost entirely a thing of the past.
