The hunt for the perfect pair of sports shoes seems to be dauntingly endless; they have to be comfortable, facilitate recovery from injury and fatigue and enhance performance. One pair cannot possibly tick all the boxes. Yet at MBT, we have once again outdone ourselves and accomplish the impossible, with our robust innovations and technology that are always at the forefront of sports science.
At MBT, we are proud of our globally patented and recognised curved soles. Every sports shoe boasts the widely lauded MBT Sensor Technology and midsole pivot axis. Working seamlessly together, they promote a rolling motion which simulates walking on undulating ground such as a grass field or the beach. In turn, this stimulates increased activation of lower limb muscles with every step, encouraging beneficial muscle strengthening. The strengthening of the intrinsic foot musculature, which other sports shoes brands unfortunately neglect, presents a wondrous array of health benefits which we shall now discover.
The endeavour to exercise regularly is seemingly impossible, almost idealistic. Faced with a time crunch from an unrelenting barrage of work and family commitments, there simply is not a slither of time to spare for exercise. To that end, we aim to bring exercise to you. Through constant invigoration of numerous muscle groups, our MBTs are proven to burn more fats and calories while walking and amazingly, even when standing still. It is as though you are exercising around the clock just by putting these MBTs on. They also improve balance and posture, so that you always stand tall with our MBTs. The benefits go on.
Our MBTs also help in preventing sports injuries. Through developing a strong intrinsic foot musculature, you will be able to withstand the stresses of instability optimally and with no damage nor injury. This greatly reduces your susceptibility to sport injuries by eliminating such areas of weaknesses which are prime sites for potential injury. Proper recovery from high intensity activities is also pivotal in preventing sport injuries. Marathons, which have recently exploded in popularity, are prime examples of high intensity activities.
Nothing can compare to the feeling of accomplishment after completing a marathon. However, it often leads to profound muscle fatigue that could prove detrimental to daily activities. Optimising post-marathon recovery is thus of paramount importance. Not only does it help to mitigate the onslaught of muscle fatigue but also helps athletes stay in optimal condition for training and performance.
The Faculty of Sports Science in Waseda University recently conducted a study aimed at investigating “The potential benefit of post-race wearing of unstable shoes (MBT) on recovery from marathon race–induced fatigue.” They compared post-marathon fatigue over three days for three groups of runners: one group wore MBTs after the race, another wore conventional flat-soled running shoes and the last wore their usual shoes. The results were ground-breaking. Fatigue experienced by the MBT group was less than that of the other two on day three, with runners reporting that their fatigue has largely disappeared. The similarity in fatigue levels between the other two groups at any time during recovery shows that conventional flat-soled sports shoes have indeed been doing us a great disservice. By increasing activity in the fatigued muscles through MBTs, one experiences ‘active recovery’. It is a more effective recovery from fatigue as compared to passive recovery that other brands offer, which involves no specific exercise. This is due to increased muscle blood flow, which leads to increased removal of lactic acid- generally utilized as a biochemical marker of muscle fatigue.
Choosing and investing in the best pair of sports shoes prevents you from experiencing a disarray of sports ailments and MBTs have once again been proven to come on top. They do not just induce weight loss and improve posture, but also prevent sports injuries and facilities recovery from fatigue. The spectrum of benefits that MBTs offer is indeed wondrous. Do not just sit there while aggravating sport injuries and fatigue slowly chip away at you. Trust that our MBT shoes are your best solution yet.
