MBT – Whats It All About?

In the early 1990s, Swiss engineer Karl Müller realized that both shoes and backache are unknown to the Masai tribesmen – and that there is a causal connection between these two facts. By walking barefoot on the natural, soft, uneven ground of their East African homeland, the Masai activate all those muscles that atrophy when on walks on hard, even surfaces wearing conventional shoes.

Masai Barefoot Technology (MBT) benefits are: Strengthens & tones muscles in the feet, legs, buttocks, stomach and back. Increases muscle activity & circulation which may help reduce cellulite and varicose veins. Relieves muscular tension, back and joint problems. Leads to a relaxed upright posture and gait. This range of footwear re-establishes our natural conditions of standing and walking. They offer high potential for health, beauty, sports, fitness, and therapeutic applications.
