MBT boots are not your normal kind of footwear. It's a reliably new concept in shoe design developed to be both physiologically and anatomically correct. The concept was developed while studying the Masai tribe's walking habits. It was discovered that this nomadic group walk extremely long distances on a daily basis, with a most amazing realization that they had a perfect posture and a low amount of back pain even though they were on their feet for long durations. It was found that they walk barefoot and on uneven ground and is attributed to the tribes healthy conditions. The MBT boots and other footwear were developed to mimic this instability and does so with the innovative sole construction.
The success of the MBT boots and other shoes has increased substantively as word of mouth spreads about the benefits of these shoes such as better posture, more toned muscles, and less pain in the knees and back. There are a few new styles of MBT boots for 2009 and include:
MBT Tambo Boots – A stylish and chic new offering that is guaranteed to turn heads and utter positive comments. These boots feature a breathable full grain or split leather upper knee high with full side zipper entry and finger goring for a customized fit. Like other MBT's, they feature a PU mid-sole with pivot which serves as the balancing section and promotes an active rolling movement as you walk. These MBT boots are great for the fall and winter months because of the heavy duty rubber out-sole and the antimicrobial mesh which allows for moisture management.
The MBT Moto is another new boot style for 2009. This is a perfect casual boot because of the resistance to scratches and water for long lasting quality. They are also very comfortable because of the breathable material used. They are constructed to last, with a TPU and glass fiber shank which adds firmness and durability to the sole.
