hi,
was wondering if anyone has ever heard of shoes called mbt's or ryn. They're a special shoe that have a well cushioned sole and a kind of rocker in the middle of the foot. It's supposed to take pressure off joints etc and tone muscles when used....the latter i wouldn't believe.
I've worn the mbt's for about 5 years now, i found them great and to be honest i don't think i could maintain the hours i work without them.
However, i'm begginging to wonder if they're actually doing me more harm than good now as my knee kind of locks back when i'm wearing them abd the outter edge of the sole is wearing out before it's time. I guess i'm walking on the outter edge of my feet.
 
Has anyone found any particular footwear better for thier ailments. I desparately need new work shoes and don't know if another pair of mbt's are worth it, they E205, i don't know what that is in $.
 
Would insoles work as well, i have to stand on tiles for 6 hours 4 days a week and my body is wrecked. Any advice welcome. Ps, i can't wear trainers in work.

check out Hapad ... they make foot supports in varying sizes and kinds that you can stick to a cheap pair of insoles.

My sister loves the mbts and just sent me info on them. She doesn't have fibro though.  They are really expensive- $200.00 plus.  I think I'll stick with my SAS shoes.

I like pr!vos by Clarks. My sister is a respiratory therapist and is on her feet for hours. She swears by Danskos.

I have had some suggested to me, one was birkenstocks and the other I will have to look and see. I'm not sure thats spelled right.
If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you won't.
I may not do things like other people, but I get things done in my own way, in my own time.

There is a website that promotes shoes made to be comfortable, a good value, and for people who work on their feet. It is called shoesforcrews.com, and I've ordered from them when I worked as an airline customer service rep recently. I have plantar fasciitis, and worked 10-hour shifts. I am plenty picky about my shoes, too, and if I'm not wearing these, Clarks, Sofft, or Softspots, I'm wearing flip-flops!

hi,
just got new shoes a size too big and have fitted them with my own made up in soles, they're good so far. Will test them out in work on monday, my reduced shift should also help.
