MBT Shoes

Hello:

I am posting today to look for stories, comments, etc. about MBT Shoes. I am in the process of writing a book about the history of walking shoes and MBT footwear is one of the chapters.

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 am looking for all the input I can find on these walking shoes. A select few success stories, or bad experiences wearing these shoes will be used in the book.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Here is a link that might be useful: Masai Barefoot Technology
