Someone posted about how walking on the beach burns more calories and is good exercise. Was wondering if anyone else has tried the MBT walking shoes. I bought a pair a month ago and love them. Take some getting used to because they rock back and forth. MBT Stands for Masai barefoot technology and its supposed to feel like walking barefoot on the sand. Rachel Ray had them on her show and they claim you can firm up and lose inches just from wearing them. So far so good for me. By the way, they are available in sandals or tennis shoes but are kind of pricey!

My wife was having back problems with all the walking we did in Florida. We saw Rachel Ray and the MBT shoes. Yes they are very pricey. After searching the Internet we found some sneakers called Earth shoes. These were only $125, compared to $250. We ordered them from Zappos.com. They have free shipping and the shoes arrived 24 hrs after we ordered them. It takes a little getting used to but my wife has not had anymore backaches since. Money well spent.

Bought a pair of these a year or so ago and they now sit on the shelf. I could never get comfortable in them and the motion ended up bothering my back. Tried them for about a month for my morning walk so maybe didn't them enough time. It is definitely a different feeling and motion.

Why am I the "last poster" here when I wouldn't recognize MBT shoes if you gave me the M and B?

'Earth Shoes' were popular back in the late 60's.
The selling point was they had a 'negative Something',
which met the heal was lower then the sole of the shoe. I had a pair of them during my 'hippie'? days, but don't remember much about them
