Prompted by DulwichMum’s comment in my previous post, here’s some info on MBTs.
MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology and is the “invention” of a Swiss doctor who observed that the Masai tribe in Africa had fantastic posture and back problems rarely occurred.
So he created this shoe which simulates the effect of walking barefoot through a desert.
Basically they make you look like you’re walking around on a couple of boats!
It makes it impossible for you to stand still so your body is constantly working out and it’s supposed to be especially good for your core stability – like you’re doing Pilates all the time.
Available via the internet or at Dr Boo’s on North Cross Road.
I haven’t tried them myself, but maybe after this plug I may be sent a pair to try out 🙂
