Does anyone wear MBT shoes? - page 2

:wavey: I just read an article in the Miami Herald about these shoes. The reporter wore them for 1 month and wrote an article for each week. They help reduce cellulite --She lost 1" from each of her... Read More

    The orthotebb shoe reminds me of the earth shoe that was popular in the 70's where the heel is lower than the toes. Anybody remember the earth shoe? I had a pair and I loved them but that was when I was in my 20's and could dance all night in 3 inch heels. Dem dayz is done..... Now.... It's Feets don't fail me now. $250 for the anti cellulite shoe is a bit rich for my taste. I pay close to that for my yearly gym membership. Ah, But the shoe fix does sound nice... I'd love to know if it really works.

    I tried a pair on and I have to admit it was kind of like walking on a rubber cloud. You ever walk into a store and walk onto one of those rubber air mats that are "cushiony?" Well, triple that and that is what these feel like. I have been known to spoil my feet and buy "good" shoes. I am going to give MBT's a try and am going to buy a pair as my graduation present from nursing school! I hope they help!

    Speaking of orthotebb, I plan to buy some and heard they are only about $25.

    I wore MBTs thru clinicals, and bought a pair as a graduation gift for myself *Smile*. I just wore them over the weekend for my 16 hour shift as a med nurse at a psych hopsital (geri - so I do a lot of walking!). I can honestly say that these shoes are the most wonderful support and well worth the investment, since I was sure that their good effect would not last for 16 hours of hard work. Since I've been wearing them the last few months, I do feel stronger in the core, and my feet are not sore at the end of the day. Danskos are terrific, but I'm committed to MBTs.

    I just bought these 2 weeks ago and have been trying to decide if I should wear them in clinical. I found them at a local store on sale for $180. They are incredible comfortable, I wore them today working out and there was a big difference, my muscles were aching at a much lower lower activity level.

    A woman from my church wears them and lost tons of weight with only walking in them. I tried them on, very weird, and were very ugly, but more designs coming out now, not so bad,. I may just go back and try them again.

    I have MBT's. I love them! No more leg pain, lower back pain or burning feet. I've worn Nike's, Danskos, Crocs, Merrels and several different orthotics. MBT's surpass them all in quality and comfort.
    Zappos has some of their new styles. Mine look like sneakers.

    I jusr got my first pair and LOVE them!!!!! I got a new pair of Danskos which triggered the plantar problems and heel spurs which I didn't know I had. The MBTs help my feet so much. When I don't have them on, my feet miss them! During my off time, I wear them to run around in. WARNING>>>>Be careful climbing stairs the first time. My thighs felt like rubber! If you decide to take the plunge, good luck! I can't say enough good about them, other than the price.:chuckle

    Hey all. Ok here is my take on MBT's. I bought a pair about a year ago and almost had a heart attack at the price. I even considered taking them back the next day, however did not. I am 50, hips were getting a bit achy and the ol' plantar fascia was beginning to give me some problems. I work 12 hour nights on labor and delivery - usually do my 6 in a row. Now, it took like 2 shifts for all my miseries to disappear. When I think of going back to my Avia sneakers they now feel like there is no padding at all. I have no idea about the reduction in thighs, cellulite ect. Never bought them for that aspect. They DO give you a bit more of a workout, but if you are thinking of buying them only for the possible improvement in cellulite ect I would say forget it. If you want them because they take the strain off of your joints and feet - go for it.

    PS anyone know of a couple of RN's looking for L&D? We need help LOL

    I have heard conflicting reports on MBTs. I have heard some people with PF say they are God's gift to feet, and others say they hate them. I guess it's like anything else - depends on the individual.
