I did a search but the threads were from several years back.


Anyone use these shoes? Like them or no?

I like them, and I know they work to some extent, but I wouldn't call them a miracle or anything. I can wear them all day and still be comfortable, and every little bit helps. They have some cute styles now too, but they are so ridiculously priced. My DH bought me mine as a gift before the economy tanked.

My mother loves her MBT's. Loves them. She has really bad feet, but they have helped her continue nursing. I'm not sure she could still do it without them.

I hate that I want a pair.

I mean, I pay for dansko and birks but those are ugly and ridiculously priced.

I guess I don't want them that badly. If I didn't have to make choices in my life I might pick up a pair.

You don’t owe them an explanation, just a response.

Want to guess how long it took me to figure out you were not talking about breastfeeding?

Oh that's so funny! I'm that far removed from breastfeeding speak. It never occurred to me.

I got a pair about 5 years ago and they truly helped my lower back pain. Unfortunately the way they are built you can't crouch down and put one bent foot behind you. I do this a million times a day (tying shoe laces, picking up toys, etc) and it was hard to remember not to do that (it breaks the plate of the inner shoe which is what makes them work). So they didn't last that long for me.
