Invented by Swiss engineer Karl Müller, MBT (Masai Barefoot Technology) is designed to mimic the feel of walking across soft ground; a feeling inspired by Müller's own walks across the soft, uneven ground in east Africa, home to the Masai tribe. Countless research studies conducted on MBT have proven that the innovative design of each shoe, boot and sandal will ease back pain, minimize stress on hip and knee joints, and increase muscle activity in lower limbs. Even standing still, MBT's Masai sensor (located under the heel) provides an exclusi ... Learn more about MBTve platform designed to keep your muscles in motion.

    I really like these shoes. They are hard to find because they have been discontinued, and they are usually very expensive. I was glad to find them at a decent price, in my size, at Sierra Trading Post.

    MBTs are pricy shoes but they really work for me. My arthritic foot and back love MBTs. I can walk without pain. This particular shoe is so comfortable I wear it like a sandal- no socks or hose. Very sorry that this is discontinued, but I was thrilled to get an extra pair in my size for less that 30% of the original price.

    Thanks STP for your great selection and wonderful discounts!

    I got these today and have been wearing them around the house as they are a bit stiff. I think they are true to size, but the heavy elastic around the ankles are going to make it difficult for many people to wear them because they won't be able to get them on! Elastic on one side is fine, but I sure wish there was a zipper on the other side so I could wear thick socks with them when needed. Otherwise they seem well made and comfortable.

    I bought these good-looking, high-quality booties for an upcoming trip to Europe in December, and I'm very glad I did. I ordered them when I saw that the style and sole were similar to another discontinued MBT style, Goti mid-height boots, which I've been happily wearing for 3 years now. My usual MBT size is 37, but I noticed that my Goti boots are size 38-1/3, so that's what I ordered in this Bomoa style, and the fit is perfect. Some reviews said that the fit was too tight and uncomfortable around the ankles, but I wore them all day yesterday at work (and walked a lot), and they were comfortable for me. There is no zipper, so I did have to use a shoe horn to get them on, but with that it was easy. I wear only MBT shoes, because I have serious back problems, but I can stand and walk comfortably while wearing MBT's, so I am always happy to find an MBT style that is "on trend", like these Bomoa booties.

    OMG, as soon as I put these MBT maryjanes on, I never wanted to take them off. They are so very comfortable for my feet, legs and back. I like all of my MBT shoes/boots, but these in particular are very comfortable. What a deal!!

    I stumbled into these shoes when my wife bought a pair and loved them the minute she tried them. I ordered two pair and immediately took them on a four-mile walk right out of the box. I was impressed and pleased because my feet felt a lot less discomfort and my the lower back problems I have been experiencing during walking did not materialize. Yesterday I decided to try them on a 6 mile hike in the mountains where I did have to negotiate a lot of technical terrain....the shoes were awesome with the same results as walking on pavement. The arch support is stellar and obvious right away. I hope this technology does not die with the company's bankruptcy as I will be looking for more of these when I wear out the ones I have.

    I wanted these boots for out trip to Africa...they run so small! There is no zipper so you have to pull them on, but the real problem is inside...they are short, even though I am more of a 7 1/2 size. I have worn their sandals and I take a smaller size than normal. The boot is beautiful...I highly recommend them and wish they had a size 39.
