A Find: MBT Sneakers

The latest weapon in the war against a dimpled derriere is… a pair of shoes. High-soled MBT sneakers, though hardly fashionable, encourage a relaxed, upright posture which supposedly enhances muscle tone in your previously slacking hips and thighs. After 4 weeks you’re to expect a lifted behind, leaner legs, and rock star abs. But it’s not as simple as it sounds. The sneaker requires an adjustment period. I tried a pair on and promptly fell over. But once your body acclimates to the high sole and rocking rhythm, watch out. It forces your core muscles to engage. Walk an hour in these shoes and you feel like you’ve taken a rigorous Pilates class.

MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology. Developed to challenge rather than cushion, the patented sole transforms flat, hard walking surfaces into a more natural uneven surface thus simulating our barefoot ancestors. MBT’s come with a “how-to” CD to ensure that you’re making the most of the 1 hour per day recommended wear. With all the creams, miracle pills, and fad diets out there, an hour a day in some funky shoes seems realistic enough to work. Find a variety of styles, including some package deals at blissworld.com.
