Fancy Footwork

Swiss Masai MBT Shoes Chapa Heather

On their website, Swiss Masai calls their invention the "anti-shoe". We prefer to call it "the shoe that kicks our butt"--in the best way imaginable! Masai Barefoot Technology (MBT) Shoes by Swiss Masai have had some serious thought and engineering put into them. Unlike ordinary shoes, MBTs are designed to distribute pressure equally across and along the whole foot. We gave them a try and from the moment we slipped these "anti-shoes" on, we were amazed by how differently and more effectively we were walking. With each step we take in our MBTs, we feel certain our posture has improved and we've even noticed less stress on our joints and muscles. There are four categories of style (sports, casual, sandals, and professional) and over 50 different womens' designs to choose from, so we're positive there's one to suit every gal's taste. And here's another bonus--now on days when we don't make it to the gym, we don't feel quite as guilty thanks to footwear that gives us an awesome workout!

NB: MBT shoes are regarded as a therapeutic training tool, and have recently received a Medical Device Establishment License #3579. Check to see if MBTs qualify for coverage under your employer's extended health and/or medical benefits package.

  1. Since getting orthotics and better walking shoes, I think my posture has improved. Definitely important to find fashion and fit in one product!
