I have heard that some people swear by them.  I tried them on and after walking in the store for a few minutes, my back started to spasm.  Just be sure that you walk in the store wearing them awhile and find out the return policy

I just broke down & ordered a pair of MBT's.  They were very expensive!  ($260.00)  Obviously, I am desperate.  I'll let you know what I think.  Suzanne

I got my MBT's today!  I am not FWB yet, but I did try them on & give them a walk around the house using 1 crutch.  Two of their claims are 100% accurate & to my surprise, instant.  Posture was automatically improved & those calf muscles kicked in just standing there.  It was amazing!  I'll keep you posted on how they work as my walking progresses.  Suzanne

I put my two cents in on this matter. I bought a pair of walk fit america orthotic's. then I take the insole out of the shoe or boot that Im wearing at that point in time . I take the wfao and trim the insole that came out of the shoe with the orthotics over the top of the insloe. I then put the small piece back in the shoe with the orthotic's. I also wear danner hiking boot . I hope this help's some one BB KID 8) 8) 8)

My OS said Nike Shox as well.  Little pricey, but nikeid.com lets you customize, so I did that.  I am on pair 2 and I LOVE them.  =)

Hi, Moonbeam,

Check out Z-Coil Pain Relief Footwear. They're the strange-looking shoes whose heels are attached to coil springs! I'll bet that Z-Coil shoes are soft on knees. I'm going to check them out myself.

Take care,

Mark

Hi,

To my knowledge, Z-Coil Pain Relief Footware is available only in the United States--you can't buy Z-Coil shoes online.

Bye,

Mark

Got a pair of MBTs and so far they are the most comfortable shoes i've ever had....it comes with a dvd explaining how they protect your joints...if you are on your feet long these are definitely worth it
