Questions keep being asked in all sorts of forums about the MBT Shoes (MBT Shoes, do they Work?; Do MBT shoes Work). MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology and the shoes are designed to mimic the gait of the Masai tribe from Africa, who have a very upright posture and do not develop any postural or low back problems. The shoe is designed to help people with these problem A number of studies have shown the biomechanical effects of the shoes, but very limited studies have shown the effects on outcomes. The shoes certainly do help some people with these problems and do not help others, and the evidence provide little guidance. When MBT shoes first came on the market they claimed to cure everything including cellulite. It was this cellulite claims that got them labels as ‘snake oil’. That claim has now been removed from the website. From what I have observed a key principle in using MBT shoes is the correct use of them and there are videos to aid that.
