And we mean, anywhere. Beach included.
It’s hard to imagine that a bumpy terrain can be kind on your feet. But physiological footwear brand MBT will have you convinced otherwise.
MBT, which stands for Masai Barefoot Technology, was created in 1996 to mimic the experience of walking on soft, uneven ground when it became clear that the human body was not designed to walk on hard, flat surfaces.
And it seems the brand has gotten its theory right. Today, MBT is recommended by doctors, scientists and therapists around the world for its ability to treat and prevent physical aches and pains thanks to its research-backed technology.
To experience the therapeutic effects of MBT, look no further than the popular Colorado 17. Designed to support you on any surface you tread, it takes comfort one step further by actually improving your posture and gait and toning your muscles.
Wear it during… Your work day
Urban jungle Singapore means rushing along the city streets are par for the course for busy professionals. The impact on the hard concrete is cushioned with the shoe’s patented SensorTechnology™, which has a soft PU compound between the midsole and outsole to make for a softer heel landing. Your knees will thank you.
Wear it during… A weekend hiking trip

The lightweight Colorado 17’s PivotAxis promotes a forward rolling movement for a more efficient gait.
