I've got MBTs, yes. I love them. I really feel them working my legs - I can only take small steps in them and if I wear them all day I'm cream-crackered at the end of the day. I got mine quite cheap from an outlet place so they aren't the sexiest of shoes...a brown suede trainer-shoe type...but I love them.
Well that it, took the plunge ordered a pair of trainer type MBT's , my credit card said 'ouch' but hopefully they will be worth it,will let you all know when my cellulite is all gone and my abs have toned, might be a while !!!!!!
I wanted a pair of these a couple of years ago (MBT) a few of the nurses in our local a&e wear then so I rekon they must be good, as those guys are on the go their whole shift-let us know how you get on
went to a podiatrist recently because I have problems with my feet and he really didnt reccommend them, he said (and this is coming from a 'foot professional'!!) that they displace the pressure you usually have on your body from walking to other parts of your body which isnt natural (he obviously explained this far more succinctly than I have!).
I'd be wary of them especially as they're so expensive! Because they're a newish thing, no one knows the long term impact (positive or negative) that the shoes could have on your body.
It's interesting that a foot-doctor-type person didn't recommend them. I have heard that a lot of health professionals wear them themselves!
I do think my posture is improved - although I've got quite good posture standing anyway. It's sitting when I slouch! They definitely tone my bum, which is a problem area of mine, cos it's really flat and un-defined. If I wear them for a couple of days a week at work and a few hours at weekends, I notice the difference. At the mo I'm a bit lazy with them and only manage once a week at work. When I'm determined, I go out for an hour's stomp in them and can definitely feel the burn in the legs and a bit of an ache the next day.
Good luck with yours, I hope you like them!!
These are mine:
I am uber shopper!!! I'd had my eye on some for a while but couldn't part with that much money. I was at an outlet village called Freeport. It's in Fleetwood in Lancashire, kinda near Blackpool - along that coastline. It's only a small place, but there's a few bargains to be had there. One of the sports shops there had just had a delivery the day before, so I was lucky really. The salesman chappie was quite excited to have so many in stock and he reckoned they'd be gone by the weekend. I don't think that was just a sales pitch either! They had some of the more shoe-looking ones in, and he said that a lot of people who work on their feet all day purchase them.
