I've been seeing some talk here about footwear, and was wondering if anyone's tried those MBT Trainer shoes?

They have thick, curved soles and are supposed to help with everything from back problems to cellulite on your bum.

If anybody here has tried them, I'd love to hear what you think.

if yoou do a little research diabetes can be cured included are some healing clinics that reverse the type 1 and 2 Join the reverse diabetes movement. I was on 45 units of insulin and 30 units at each meal I am now controlling it with exercise and food. Don't give up. Find a doctor that isn't practicing and looks at why you got the diabetes. Wuit treating the symtom and get to the cause. hope you have the support and love to see you through. Z

Sears and Kmart are now carrying a knock off of this shoe, it's a lot cheaper, $35 or so. The patent must have run out on the MBT's. I have had a pair for a week now and they do work the legs and back differently. They are called "Therashoe"

Never heard of these, but appreciate the webs site you gave us to look up. I agree with Gabby and quite expensive. Since I have an artificial leg, I would actually have to see how they would fit that foot.(LOL) Because all shoes don't fit me right anymore…Debe

I have never heard of these. Is there a website for them? I am always looking for something comfortable.

Sure, here:

and here (this one takes a little while to load):

They are pricey, but they are supposedly amazing... they've been featured on Rachel Ray's Talk Show. See this link:

These look incredible. The least expensive one is a sandal that I would wear in summer here.
I watched the videos and the only thing that would concern me is that they say because they are "medical equipment" they should be used with the assistance of a medical professional and that they could cause more harm that good if used incorrectly. That sounds a little frightening.
