MBT performance running collection helps runners run more efficiently with its speed, performance and cushioning models. The MBT running range was designed and developed to promote a more efficient run through mid-foot striking and a forward rocking movement. Utilizing proprietary technologies to help runners achieve a more efficient gait from mid-foot strike to toe-off.
The MBT PivotStrike™ mid-foot area provides runners with the ideal foot striking platform to transition into propulsion while enhancing support and cushioning. A t ri-density feature with varying foam arrays adapts and promotes a soft mid-foot landing and absorbs harmful shock, and guides the foot into enhanced propulsion during toe-off with its special EVA that offers better rebound energy. A more efficient natural run with superior cushioning and enhanced propulsion to change your running game.

:: TRIED & TESTED by PODIATRISTS ::
“I have run in them at least once a week and have come to the conclusion that these shoes (ZEE 16) are like flippers for swimmers, ‘Fins with a sole’. They can make you run much faster than without them, but only a very fit person could sustain the speed. I run with a running mate who wants to burn them. He is always saying slow down.” – David Gilbert, Podiatrist
“After walking in the shoes for 2 weeks i decided it was time to go for a run. Cushioned feel and rocker sole felt great again. Felt as though i was 'flying’. I believe the ZEE 16 is a very good shoe which provides a comfortable ride and one which serves a purpose for its target market. The rocker sole is very effective in reducing 1st MPJ motion & aiding a smooth & effective gait for those who require such properties in a shoe.” – Robert Parish, Podiatrist
