Research on MBT / Toning Shoes / Unstable Shoes

    Is this the right shoe to be using for research into rocker soles? In simple language its not just a rocker sole, it also features a SACH.

    If you are going to do research on a rocker sole should the only variant be the rocker sole not the also SACH variant that this product brings to bare?

    In a perfect world you would add a rocker sole to the ASICS walking shoe to see the true effect of and isolation of the rocker sole effect.

    Forget about MBT, they did not invent Rocker Bottoms sole shoes.

    A rocker bottom sole (RBS) was originally designed way back. Medical Grade Footwear fabricators were modifying the soles of shoe so as to enable the foot to propel without creating an abductory twist at propulsion. These shoes were not designed for some fashion accessory but for a practical need for a patient mainly Hallux rigidus, Hallux Valgus, forefoot amputation, forefoot crush injuries,
    RBS are primarily fabricated for specific needs not for wanabe marathon runners

    The term Metatarsal Bar, created a pivot point. It was made so the shoe seesawed and the foot remained flat and toe movement was minimal
