MBT's philosophy is to keep the body in motion. They believe motion is key to helping find and maintain the right balance in life. MBT believes it can achieve this through their unique shoe design that combines a perfect balance of function with style.
MBT (Masai Barefoot Technology) was born in 1996 when MBT discovered that natural instability can have positive effects on the human body. The discovery was made by observing the wonderfully agile Masai people walking barefoot on natural, uneven ground. Seeing these people in action made them realize that the human body is simply not designed to walk or stand on the hard, flat surfaces of modern society. So they set out to develop a new kind of footwear, one that would mimic walking on soft, uneven ground. The results were dramatic and revolutionary. MBTs are now sold in more than 55 countries around the world.
