The Sportsphysio.com, affialiated with ActivInstinct, brings you the great range of MBT footwear.


Massai Barefoot Technology footwear has been specifically designed to create a more natural balanced, stance when walking, whilst easing the load that standard footwear places on our feet.

Since 1996, the MBT philosophy has been to keep the body in motion. They believe motion is key to helping find and maintain the right balance in life. MBT, can help achieve this through unique shoe design that combines a perfect balance of function with style.

Natural movement

The positive effect of the MBT is based on the principle of “natural instability”.  An effect which can, in fact, be achieved by simply walking barefoot on soft, uneven, natural ground such as sand.

However, in today’s thoroughly modern world this is not always easy to do. So they set out to develop a new kind of footwear, one

that would mimic walking on soft, uneven ground. When walking in MBTs, the ground no longer feels flat and stable, so the body has to compensate and create stability.


The key to the patented MBT footwear is the sole construction with the Masai Sensor at its heart. It is located directly beneath the heel and sinking into the sensor provides a comfortable heel strike and creates a natural instability that can help the body generate muscle activity in the lower limbs.

The curved sole with its integrated balancing area requires an active and controlled rolling movement that can help the body to improve balance and posture while standing and walking.*

*As every individual is different, results may vary from person to person.

The MBT range is extensive and includes everything from dress shoes to runner’s trainers in a great range of fashionable styles.
