3D mesh is a light-weight, 3D woven fabric and is highly breathable.
Canvas is a sturdy, plain, woven fabric, typically made out of cotton. It is particularly lightweight and breathable.
This shank consists of TPU (heel & midfoot area) and nylon mixed with glass fibres (forefoot area). Its dual density provides high wearing comfort.
EVA (Ethylen Vinylacetat) is a very light-weight material, used in soles for cushioning. It does not last as long as PU.
Full grain leather is made from the top split of the hide. Only the hair has been removed. It preserves the hide’s original texture. Full grain has a great durability with the best fiber strength of leather.
The GORE-TEX® membrane is the heart of GORE-TEX® footwear. It is completely waterproof but permeable for water vapor.
This Shank consists of TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) mixed with short glass fibres to create an impact-resistant material with a high degree of stiffness.
A compact block similar to the form of the human foot. Lasts can have many different characteristics, most of which will affect the way the shoe will look like and fit. Usually they are made of wood, synthetic material or metal.
All products of the range (except sandals and GORE-TEX® models) have the same 3D mesh lining in accordance with the MBT DRY&COOL concept. The 3D mesh lining ensures cooler and drier feet.
The soft PU Masai Sensor is the heart of Masai Barefoot Technology. The sensor produces a pleasant feeling, reminiscent of walking on natural, uneven ground. The softness is important to create the specific functionality (sink-in movement) of the MBT sole.
Regulates the climate inside the MBT in a natural way by combining air circulation and moisture management. It keeps the foot comfortably dry. The basis of DRY&COOL is the combination of high-grade mesh lining with a functional sockliner.
Microfiber is a soft material and has good moisture-conducting properties
The most important point of the PU midsole is the balancing area underneath the metatarsus which requires an active rolling movement with every step.
Nubuck leather is full grain leather with a buffed surface, which gives the leather a particularly soft and velvety feel.
We provide different rubber outsoles for our models. The rubber outsoles are made as a perfect compromise between grip and durability.
PU (polyurethane) is a cellular synthetic material that is resistant to pressure. Long-lasting but heavier than EVA.
PU-coated materials and synthetic materials are highly durable and resistant.
The predecessor of today´s MBT. A heelless shoe without Masai Sensor.
Single-layer mesh is an open woven and breathable fabric.
A movement between walking and jogging with an increased frequency of steps. When slow running one should maintain the upright posture and natural rolling action.
All products of the range (except sandals and GORE-TEX® models) have the same sockliner in accordance with MBT DRY&COOL concept. Upper part: Single-layer mesh, a breathable and open woven fabric. Lower part: Foam with an open cell structure which allows breathability, assists moisture management, is quick-drying and antimicrobial.
Split leather is made from the lower layers of the hide and is extremely breathable.
One of the first MBT models. It had a higher midsole compared to today´s models.
