Pump up your workout plan this spring with new styles and colors of the revolutionary fitness shoe - MBT. Not only do these shoes offer you full-body shaping and toning in every step, but now there are more sporty styles than ever before.

MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology. MBT research indicates their footwear:
• activates neglected muscles
• improves posture and gait
• tones and shapes the body
• can help with back, hip, leg and foot problems
• can help with joint, muscle, ligament and tendon injuries
• reduces stress on knee and hip joints

The secret of MBT is in the sole. At the core is the Masai Sensor, which creates natural instability - a rocking, rolling movement - that stimulates your body's supporting muscular system, leads to toned muscles and better posture, and reduces stress on knees and hips. While regular shoes support and stabilize your body in an unnatural way, the natural instability of physiological footwear encourages your body to balance itself and works neglected muscles. It's the instability that gives you such a great workout.

Our favorite ladies' MTBs are:

M Walk

Available in 6 colors.
MBT is the first physiological footwear that has a positive effect on the whole body. This sporty lace-up has a polyurethane midsole with a balanced pivoting section underneath the metatarsus which requires an active rolling movement with every step. This activates a large number of stabilizing muscles throughout the whole body when walking or standing.
* TPU and glass fiber shank adds firmness to sole construction and also ensures a natural rolling movement of the foot with every step, optimizing the pressure distribution over the whole sole.
* Masai Sensor (Masai Barefoot Technology®) creates a pleasant feeling of walking on a sandy beach or soft moss, and instantly creates a natural instability to which the body automatically reacts, increasing muscle activity.
* Rubber outsole.
* Leather/mesh upper is comfortable and durable.
* We recommend that you perform the MBT warm-up exercises to help get you acclimated to the MBT way of life.
