The result: you will be physically stronger just from using MBT in your everyday life.
Can MBT help with pain?
The concept of MBT is based on is accepted by biomechanics institutions round the world and medical specialists who recommend its use for muscular-skeletal problems such as:
- Back, hip, leg and foot problems.
- Injuries to joints, ligaments, muscles and tendons.
If MBT is used as a secondary treatment, its use should be supervised by a qualified medical professional.
What differences will I see wearing MBT?
The most important thing is that you will feel different. Just from standing and walking in your MBTs: muscular activity will increase; your circulation and posture will improve. Plus, your legs and hips will be getting stronger and the impact on the joints in your back, knees and hips will decrease.
I have Arthritis in my big toe. Would MBT help?
MBT dynamically changes impact through the foot, ensuring that your weight is evenly distributed across your foot from the moment your heel strikes the ground until your foot leaves the ground. It’s as if you were walking barefoot on a natural surface. Conventional shoes concentrate the impact in your heel and raise it across the foot, ending with the big toe leaving the ground, which causes a lot of pain for people with arthritis (a condition also knows as hallux rigidus or bunions).
Will MBT cure my Sciatica?
Sciatica, or pain which radiates down the back of the leg, is generally a symptom of a back problem. Intense back pain generally affects people’s quality of life, although most people get better within 6 - 12 weeks. Activity helps to eliminate symptoms earlier, reduces chronic incapacity and reduces time in treatment. MBT also affects the angle of the trunk relative to the pelvis. MBT causes the lumbar spine to adopt the ideal position to take the load through the pelvis and the hips. MBT also helps to strengthen the lumbosacral musculature and recovery of the lower part of the spine. MBT should be used as a tool to help treat sciatic pain. If pain in your lower back or leg persists, you should see your doctor to eliminate more serious conditions, such as infection, tumour, fracture, inflammation, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Why does my leg muscle hurts after wearing MBT?
The pain that some people experience, especially in the early days of using MBT, may be the natural result of a new exercise programme since you are using muscles that haven’t been used when walking in conventional shoes. It is known as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). It normally disappears after using MBT for five days.
Can MBT help with foot pain?
MBT reduces pressure on the heel and so is beneficial for problems like heel spurs, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis in the Achilles tendon and arthrosis. MBT also reduces the impact experienced at the knee. MBT is also useful for metatarsalgia as it reduces pressure in the front part of the foot.
Can MBT help with Plantar Fasciitis or Heel Spurs?
MBT can help plantar fasciitis since it reduces pressure on the arches of the feet. You should introduce MBT gradually to help stretch the plantar fascia gently while protecting it and strengthening the muscles that support it.
I've had an operation on one of my joints. When can I start wearing MBT?
If you are already used to using MBT you can think of it as a good postoperative aid. However, we recommend not using MBT during the first 6 - 8 weeks after the operation, to reduce the risk of falls that might cause serious harm. We recommend use after that time and under professional medical supervision.
Can I wear MBT if I have flat feet?
Yes, MBT activates the muscles of the foot and helps to strengthen the arch. It is vital to use them properly.
I have knee pain. Can I wear MBT?
We know that MBT reduces impact through the knee. We also know that walking in MBT will provide the benefit of activation of the muscles surrounding the knee. MBT stretches the foot and activates the quadriceps. These features help in treatment of knee pain. We recommend medical advice from a qualified expert (doctor, physiotherapist, chiropodist) who is familiar with MBT for a definitive answer.
Why do I have the sensation that my feet are burning after wearing MBT?
The sensation of heat that some people experience is due to the increase flow of blood in the muscles of the foot. It stops after a few weeks. In some people, it may continue for longer and may be an indication of a vascular problem, probably due to conditions such as arteriosclerosis and diabetes. If it persists, consult your family doctor to check for any underlying issue.

How does MBT works?
Thanks to the unique design of the sole, MBT changes hard, flat surfaces for uneven, soft surfaces. This generates natural instability under your feet to which the body will automatically respond by increasing muscular activity in a natural way. This increased activity activates forgotten muscles and improves posture and gait, lessening the impact on the back and the knees and hips.
Why is MBT different from conventional footwear?
Conventional shoes balance the body in an artificial way and make some muscles stop working. Unlike conventional shoes, MBT retains the natural balancing motion of the foot and recruits the whole muscular system of the body. This creates natural instability which activates the muscles that have been inactive for so long with positive effects for the whole body.
Are there any functional differences between different MBT models?
MBT technology is in the design of the sole. The benefits are the same for all models. The upper part is what varies, allowing a variety of uses to suit everybody, whether at work or at play.
What is the MBT sensor in the sole?
The sole of MBT footwear is curved. The soft MBT Sensor in the heel lessens the impact on the joints and the skeletal system. The curve decreases flexion, creating a different motion on standing and walking, unlike what you see in conventional shoes.
How can MBT justify it's prices?
MBT is physiological footwear: it does a lot more than conventional shoes. It is specifically designed to strengthen your body, help to prevent injury and in recovery or rehabilitation after injury. More than 25 years of research have gone into the MBT of today, which allows your body to adopt the ideal posture when you walk or stand and produces an improved quality of life.
How do I take care of my MBT products?
To keep your MBT footwear in good condition you should:
- Clean them when they get dirty. Don’t let dirt dry on.
- Never wash them in the washing machine.
- Avoid contact with oils, acids and corrosive liquids.
- If your MBT footwear gets wet, dry them before putting them away or wearing them again.
Does MBT.COM offer price adjustments?
