    So I just ordered my first pair of MBT shoes after reading some good things about them. They feel a bit weird and wobbly on.... and they are not the best looking shoes, but I kind of think they might be on to something... does anyone own and wear MBT's and have you seen any results??

    Here's more info on their website: MBT Shoes - Home of the Anti shoe

    In general they are kind of expensive... I got mine on endless.com on sale.. they sell them at zappos and amazon too...

    I think they are similar to the Reebok easytone but I think the easy tone uses different technology.. so I wanted to try the original MBT.... I'll let you know what I think after wearing them on a few walks...

      I was just looking at the Reebok Easytones online & contemplating buying them, so I am curious to know what you think of the ones that you purchased that are similar. I think in theory it looks like it would work great when using them in conjunction with your normal walking, but I'm a bit skeptical of things, so I will check back to see what you think! Looking forward to your review; thanks!

        just a thought, from endless.com or zappos you get free shipping both ways.. so you could buy a pair and try them on a carpeted floor to see if you like them.. if not they could just go right back...

        I will def check back in with a review after I've worn mine though.. i'm keeping 'em :)

          oh and bing.com is offering 20% cashback on endless purchased right now (the percentage seems to change .. but right now it's 20%).. to get it, just go to bing.com and do a search for 'endless' or 'endless shoes' and one of the first results should be endless.com with a little bing icon saying it's 20% cashback. Also when you check out through endless, it shows you your cashback amount.. i have been shopping like crazy...

            I have owned 3 pairs of MBT shoes and absolutely love them. I stand all day for my job so I bought them more for comfort than anything. It is hard to tell if they do a lot of toning or reduce cellulite because I run and excercise quite regularly, but they are amazing for comfort. Another great website to try is footwearetc.com

              Are they similar to the new Sketchers that just came out? I see them on TV and wonder if they really work on muscles that we do not normally use...?

                    I have a pair and I have had them over a year. I am a nurse so I am always on my feet whether it be walking or standing. I LOVE mine. I'm not sure if I've really seen results for my buns or thighs but it helped my sore knees and ankles. They are really weird to wear when you first get them but you'll soon get use to them :). Good luck!

                      Thanks! It's good to know they they don't "wear out" after use like some sneakers
