For the Human Movement

 

With a strong science and innovation foundation, MBT® has a unique approach that understands the human benefits of health, wellness and staying on the move. We know our consumers have realistic health and fitness ambitions. They want to maintain a healthy lifestyle which enables them to live and love life to the fullest. However, for many the pursuit of living a more active lifestyle is difficult. The packed nature of our busy schedules means that healthy activity gets squeezed out by life commitments. MBT® wants to break the start-stop cycle of broken health and fitness resolutions by working with the reality of today’s consumer. When wearing MBT® shoes, whether standing or walking, one can’t help but be “on the move” due to its patented construction. So whether you are going for a walk or just standing there, you're on the move. And if you just happen to want to look mighty cool in the process, we understand that too. It's only human.

 

 

Our Sole Purpose

The natural instability of the unique MBT® (or Masai Barefoot Technology) sole imitates walking on soft, uneven surfaces. The technology in the sole has been patented worldwide to provide the greatest comfort possible, as it allows you to enjoy the natural benefits of walking every day.

The MBT® innovative design includes a multi-layered, curved sole which makes for a unique and rewarding walking experience. The key to MBT is its patented sole structure. The shank, PU midsole with Pivot and the MBT® SensorTechnology™ create a soft surface that is akin to walking barefoot on springy moss or on a sandy beach in what has been described as a pleasant and natural feeling, reminiscent of walking on a sandy beach. The Pivot Axis promotes a rolling movement to your step.

Designed for you

With sleek and stylish silhouettes, bright color pops, as well as the popular blacks and browns, there are designs for all occasions, overall the range is more lightweight, more durable and more comfortable than ever, ensuring our consumers can find the perfect pair for their unique journey.
