MBT. Made for your body


The original

MBTs are the world’s most unique shoes, developed especially to activate your body while standing and walking. Right back in 1996 we found the link between instability and movement could be applied to footwear design.

MBTs are shoes made for your body and can help you move more every day. MBTs' patented Masai Sensor and Balancing Area induce instability that your body instinctively attempts to correct. This can help increase muscle activity, reduce lower back pain, and improve posture and balance.

Get the most out of your MBTs

To optimize the use of MBTs, we have created a series of specially designed exercises to help optimize MBTs' potential to increase muscle activation. The implementation of instability training means that MBTs can be used not only for everyday activities but also as a training device.

Find the right MBTs for you

There are MBT styles to suit every occasion and need, so you’ll always be able to do more for your body while standing and walking – wherever you are.
Our MBT Index simplifies the process of finding the right level of instability for your needs. It ranks MBTs into one of four categories, starting at Activate, our least unstable level, and progressing through Dynamic and Performance, and ending with our most extreme level, Ultimate.
