Before I get into this article, I have to let all my faithful readers know that I have never owned a pair of MBT Shoes or any other type of special footwear before. My interest in these particular shoes stems from the fact that I work on my computer all day, and have started to get some back pains and pains in my joints. However, since it is required to have the product before I can really comment on them, I have decided to join the new fitness revolution and buy a pair of these new MBT sneakers.
MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology and the shoes are designed to copy walking on a beach in the sand. It’s a multiple layered, curved sole that obtains this by creating a natural, but uneven walking surface. This Masai technology is meant to make the core strengthening muscles more active, producing better posture, better back strength and increasing shock absorption for all of the joints. It also makes wearing these walking shoes quite a unique experience to say the least, and quite a workout.
I purchased a pair of the MBT shoes called the sport white. When I received them, I was a bit thrown back on how weird they looked. They looked clunky and huge. I put them on and was instantly feeling weird. They rock back and forth, due to the curved sole. But after a few minutes of wearing these MBT’s, I became use to the weird motion and began to walk around. They actually felt really good. Walking felt better from some reason. As you walk, the shoe actually propels you in a correct fashion. When standing still, you feel more upright and my back felt more straight.
I have been wearing them now for the last 6 months and I can honestly say that I am extremely pleased with the quality of this walking shoe. The positive changes I have seen in my back pain since I began wearing the MBT shoe is remarkable. I feel better and healthier and think this walking shoe has really helped my posture. I can look back and say that I am reaping some benefits from wearing these shoes and highly recommend them.
