It’s been nearly a month now since I’ve been using my MBT’s so I thought I’d let you all know how I’m getting along with them. I’ve been wearing them most days to walk the dog and so far I have to say I have noticed a difference in a few areas. Firstly, my legs do get more tired when I’m walking… considerably more tired. If I’m walking up a hill, I really notice the difference. I definitely feel the change in my posture also. They make you feel like you’re standing up super straight, and even standing, you can feel your muscles working (rather than my usual, sloppy posture!)
I haven’t noticed any difference in terms of weight loss or toning, but then without before and after shots, it’s not something that can be thoroughly compared (I’m I refuse to put before and after snaps of my thighs on here… sorry guys!). All in all I definitely feel like they are working my legs, improving my posture, and wearing me out much quicker than if I was wearing conventional shoes. Overall I’m pretty impressed with them. I wouldn’t say that I was skeptical at first, but I definitely didn’t expect to be able to feel them really working my legs like I do. I can actually feel my thighs burning when I’m walking up a hill which, in normal footwear, I wouldn’t feel a thing!
If you’re walking any long distances everyday I’d say they are definitely worth looking in to (perfect if you walk to work, then change into heels when you get there!) I’ve also heard great things about their capacity for improving posture for medical reasons… a lot of people left me comments on my YouTube channel saying wearing them helped to improve poor posture and bad backs, so if you suffer from either they could be worth a go!
They aren’t the best looking shoe in the world, there is no denying that, but for most situations where you walk a long way, they don’t need to be! I’m a big fan of mine, and I will continue to wear them.
MBT actually sent me a pair of their new limited edition Wunderkind shoes (above), designed by Wolfgang Joop (The man behind Joop!) to give away to one lucky reader. I have one pair of UK size 4 (EU 37, US 6.5) in blue, so if that’s your size… you’re in luck! These shoes are available exclusively from Harrods and are priced at £360 (yes, you read that right).
