MBT -Masai Barefoot Technology- was born in 1996 when MBT's founders discovered that natural instability has some amazing health benefits. MBT made this discovery by observing the wonderfully agile Masai people walking barefoot on natural, uneven ground. So they created a company to develop a new kind of footwear, one that would mimic walking on soft, uneven ground. The results have been dramatic and revolutionary. MBTs are now sold in more than 35 countries around the world and enthusiastic users testify that wearing MBTs noticeably increase their well-being. When walking in MBTs, the ground is no longer flat and stable, so the body has to use more muscles to compensate and create stability. This activates the whole body, increases back muscle activity, improves posture, tightens buttocks and thighs and even burns more calories. MBT...Footwear for your Well-Fare.
