Here is more information about the Anti-Shoe MBT, as seen on our show today:

They named their footwear MBT (Masai Barefoot Technology) and refused to call it a shoe because MBT is totally different:
• Its sole is curved, not flat.
• It is unstable, not stable.
• It activates your muscles instead of undermining them.
• It has a positive effect on the entire body, not just the feet.
In other words: It is the antithesis of a shoe. OR THE ANTI-SHOE

An all-round success
Step. Rolling action. Step. Rolling action. This simple movement creates tremendous benefit. Helping solve knee and back problems, relieving tension in the neck, easing joint pains – and helping to tone and shape the buttocks and thighs. The important thing is that every one of these claims stands up to scientific research - which is why the "anti-shoe" is now even prescribed by doctors and recommended by fitness experts.

Why natural movement is so healthy
The positive effect of the MBT is based on the principle of "natural instability". An effect which can, in fact, be achieved without the benefit of high-tech footwear: by simply walking barefoot on soft, uneven, natural ground such as sand or moss. However, in today's thoroughly modern world this is not always easy to do - but the health benefits are significant. While wearing MBTs the body is forced to maintain its natural balance, thereby stimulating and exercising the body's supporting muscle system which results in numerous pro-body benefits.

From hard, flat surfaces to soft, natural, uneven ground
MBTs activate and strengthen the small supporting muscles which are the body's "natural shock absorbers". The key to the MBT is the patented sole construction, at the heart of which is the soft Masai Sensor. It is located directly beneath the heel and simulates walking and standing on uneven ground. This creates a natural instability, to which the body responds with small, intuitive, compensatory movements. The midsole, with its integrated balancing area, requires an active and controlled rolling movement with every step. In conjunction with the Masai Sensor, the body's entire musculoskeletal system is activated and exercised, the muscles in the buttocks, stomach and back are strengthened, posture and gait are kept relaxed and upright and stress on the joints and back is relieved.
