The claim that they help with posture and firming up the legs is true, plus I find them attractive and comfortable.

Product Description

Enjoy the greater benefit from every step you take in the Katika sandal from MBT. While its full-grained leather upper with tonal stitching and two hook-and-loop straps creates the appearance of a casually attractive sandal, there's real science beneath this shoe. The thick rubber sole has been specially designed to increase the muscle activity required for each step while also ensuring a natural, comfortable rolling motion. So every stride delivers more benefits to your body, which you can actually see and feel over time.

The MBT Katika combines cutting-edge technology with a summery sandal silhouette to create a casual yet functional sandal. This women's sandal features a synthetic upper with two adjustable straps, a microfiber lining and footbed with a TPU and glass fiber shank that adds firmness to the sole and ensures natural rolling movement of the foot. The MBT Katika will be like no other sandal you've ever worn. Strengthen those walking muscles on your way to the beach with the MBT Katika!

    These were my third MBT sandal purchase. MBT's are my favorite walking shoes. Although i like the style of the Katika, they fit different from my others. First the heel strap does not have an adjustment band and though the shoes fit fine in length and width, the heel was 'baggy' and i have wide feet. i ordered 1/2 size larger than i usually wear and this worked fine. Second, the front of the shoe near the toe was a strange shape - slightly more pointed and the 'point' was at a strange angle. Finally the lining on the foot bed is a very light color (my others were a med to dark gray) and this looked weird with black sandals imo. I did like that the rocker bottom of this style was not as tall as my Kisumu's. I am returning them.

    This particular style (KATIKA) is new to me. For the price I found them, I couldn't see passing them up since it is summer time and I prefer sandals to athletics or leather mary janes like I normally wear. I now own 6 pairs of MBT shoes, and have been in love with them since the first pair I put on. That said, this particular style falls a little short, in my opinion. It doesn't seem that the soles have quite the "give" that other styles have had, but that could be because it is a sandal, and I've been wearing athletic or mary jane leathers for several months. I haven't worn them out of the house yet, but have no doubt that they will at least compare to the others in that my back and feet won't hurt nearly as badly, nor as quickly, as when I wear sub-par shoes. If you've never tried MBT, I suggest being fitted in a local store if you can find them, because what you wear in other shoes will likely not match what you wear in MBT's. Once you've worn them and see the difference they make in your comfort level, you may never buy another brand again! I haven't... in over 3 years. BEWARE - not all sellers are selling legitimate MBT shoes - I did make the mistake once of ordering from an unknown seller (NOT ON AMAZON) and received knock off's... they actually HURT my feet, even though they appeared to be (mostly) decent shoes. I ended up giving away that $99 pair of shoes...

    The shoes arrived on time. It tool couple days to get used to it. Now I wear it almost everyday. The arch support not enough for me. Bought arch support and feel great. During walking one of the shoes will make a sound during each step. Can't get rid of the sound by trying walking different angle. Overall, I like this shoes.

    Although I only walk in these, they have really improved my running form. You can't walk fast in these sandals unless you move your hips properly, so I now move my hips more when I run, which has helped me with my runner's knee. Also, just putting these sandals on will often immediately alleviate my running injuries (knee pain, ankle pain, as well as sesamoiditis, which is a painful bruised feeling in the ball of the foot due to too much impact and inflammation). I even walk around the house in these sandals! The only problem with not taking them off is that they don't exactly smell fresh and new anymore and they're only a month or so old.

    MBT shoes put a spring in your step. They're practically the only shoes I wear now. After too much aerobics and running nearly ruined my feat, a podiatrist told me I needed a serious operation. With these shoes I can go miles, effortlessly. I used to wear Dansko shoes, but they're more for standing long periods than for walking.

    The first time you put them on, they may feel odd. But after a week or two, all other shoes pale in comparison. I've avoided foot surgery, thanks to these shoes.

    I have now purchased and worn 8 pair of MBTs. I lost 5" in height and suffered from constant back pain. These shoes allow me to walk with much less pain. I wear nothing else.

    This is my second pair of MBT's and I'm in love. Sizing as always is somewhat subjective, my feet are pretty wide so I can never choose fit on length but more on width. Then if they are wide enough are they so long that I trip over the length? These shoes are great on all counts. The fit is comfortable especially with there being adjustment availabe over the toes and ankle. Walking is comfortable and I have found I'm walking faster and with less foot pain. (I have plantars fasciitus, tarsal tunnel syndrome, and my toes don't like to flex as they should.)

    If you're switching to MBT's from the now discontinued Skechers, these are slightly different. The rocker bottom is more pronounced but not in a bad way. If anything, it's a more complete roll for your foot. It took me about an hour to get used to and now I prefer it over the Skechers I still have. The MBT's also seem to be more strongly constructed, so I have hopes that they will last longer than the Skechers which seemed to break down in 4-5 months of use. With that said, most of the time these cost 2-3 times what a pair of Skechers did so maybe you get what you pay for.
