Advanced Features in MBT Shoes

 

 

 Injection Molded Heel Counter

 

Injection Molded Heel Counter

Injection Molded Heel Counter

A Heel Counter is an insert used to reinforce the heel cup of a shoe and increase support. The heel counter helps lock the foot into the shoe and anchors it to the mid-sole. The Injection Molded Heel Counter in MBT shoes cradles the heel and arch and reduces over-pronation.

 

 Impact Cushioning

 

 Impact Cushioning

 

Impact Cushioning

MBT SensorTechnology and PivotStrike are designed with the ultimate Impact Cushioning for increased footbed support. The footbed is the inside part of the shoe that runs under the bottom of the foot and is more commonly referred to as the insole. 

 

 Rocker Bottom

 

 Rocker Bottom

Rocker Bottom

A rocker bottom shoe has a rounded heel and a sole that’s thicker than usual — the rocker bottom sole arcs with your foot at a slight angle that prevents it from flattening out.  The rocker bottom sole increases lower limb muscle activity. MBT's unique interplay of SensorTechnology and PivotAxis lets you work to reestablish your natural balance as you walk. Offering you relief and protection with every step.

 

 Air Mesh

 

 Air Mesh

Air Mesh

Air mesh uppers are usually made of an engineered mesh that is patterned for strength and flexibility. MBT air mesh upper allows air to pass through for ventilated relief as well as breathability and durability.

 

 Pivot Strike Area

 

 Pivot Strike Area

Pivot Strike Area

Pivot Strike Area is a foot striking platform that provides support and helps your foot transition. MBT’s innovative Pivot Strike area provides you with the ideal foot striking platform to transition into propulsion or a forward movement while enhancing support and cushioning.

 

 Drylex 360 Moisture Management System

 

 Drylex 360 Moisture Management System

Drylex 360

Drylex 360° Moisture Management System is on the collar and tongue lining of our shoes.

 Tri-Density Midsole

 

  Tri-Density Midsole

Tri-Density Midsole

The midsole of a shoe is composed of a rubber-like foam that is the core of the shoe. MBT’s Tri-density Midsole features three layers of foam to give you extensive cushioning and more energy return that allows for a better ride.

 

 Sensor Technology

 

Sensor Technology

Sensor Technology

MBT SensorTechnology absorbs shock and produces a natural cushioning as if you were walking on a sandy beach. Combined with the PivotAxis it promotes a rolling movement to activate your muscles and improve posture and balance.

 

 Engineered Air Mesh

 

Engineered Air Mesh

Engineered Air Mesh

Air mesh uppers are usually made of an engineered mesh that is patterned for strength and flexibility. MBT air mesh upper allows air to pass through for ventilated relief as well as breathability and comfort with minimal stitching.

 

 High Abrasion Rubber Sole

 

High Abrasion Rubber Sole

High Abrasion Rubber Outsole

Using abrasion-resistant materials for soles of shoes makes them durable for long-term use. Our High Abrasion Rubber outsole offers superior strength with minimal weight.

 

 2-Sensor Technology

 

2-Sensor Technology

2-Sensor Technology

The MBT 2-SensorTechnology promotes a soft midfoot landing by working with the heel sensor to absorb harmful shock. Basically, two sensors work together to provide you with the ultimate cushioning, smooth impact dissipation, and gait transition.

 

 Gore-Tex

 

Gore-Tex

GORE-TEX

GORE-TEX is guaranteed to keep you dry. This technology in MBT's soles provides best-in-class waterproof protection you can rely on. Whether you're dashing through downtown showers or facing down mountain storms, you get innovative waterproofness and excellent breathability.

 

Ortholite Insole 

 

Ortholite Insole

Ortholite Insole

Unlike traditional foam, OrthoLite® insole compresses less than 5% over its lifetime—so the cushioning, fit, comfort and performance never change. The open-cell structure creates a moisture management system to help move moisture away and provide a cooler and drier insole. As you can see, the Ortholite insoles are lightweight, ultra breathability, anti-microbial, and washable providing you with long-term cushioning.

 

 Serdia

 

Serdia

Serdia

Some shoe manufacturers add anti-microbial elements to their footbeds. These help keep the shoes fresh and prevent foot odor by inhibiting the growth of bacteria that produce the unwanted smell. Serdia is a light activated formula to absorb and neutralize footwear odors.

 

 Vibram XS-Trek Outsole

 

Vibram XS-Trek Outsole Advanced Feature 

Vibram XS-Trek

Vibram’s technical trekking compound that is known for its performance and durability. The engineered Vibram XS-Trek outsole is designed for difficult trekking and multi-sport performance to offer ultimate grip on wet and dry terrain.

 

 APMA Seal of Approval

APMA Seal of Approval
