Runners, This is What You Need to Know About The Future of Running.

What's your Shoe Q? Don't know what that means? Well, IQ tests ascertain your mental capacity, so why not transfer the concept to your feet? Your Shoe Q is likely a formula that takes into account factors ranging from taste to budget.

You could have that experience in April when the MBT Performance Running Collection lands on Singapore store shelves. You'll want to try on at least one pair – but allocate extra time because the MBT Performance Running Collection has been so artfully engineered, you can choose from three shoe types, so try them all on – you know you're intrigued!

Life Well Lived with MBT

MBT is a Swiss born physiological footwear brand that helped create the rocker shoe trend.

Beyond design, the shoes are designed to support active healthy lifestyles as the rocker curved sole construction helps to activate lower limb muscles and improves posture and circulation.

As an international player with a presence in the U.S., Australia, UK, Germany, Italy and Spain, the brand stands up to each of these nation's running shoe industries, so you can surmise that while MBT has some seriously hot competition, that hasn't stopped it from being an award-winning brand since 1996.

Engineering Excellence

Runners, This is What You Need to Know About The Future of Running.

MBT introduces its first ever performance running collection to help runners run more efficiently with its speed (SPEED 16), performance (GT 16) and cushioning (ZEE 16) models.

The MBT running range was designed and developed to promote mid-foot striking to help runners with their conditioning and can be used post workout for recovery, through enhanced cushioning and support utilizing unique MBT technologies.

It's the science driving the shoe that's safeguarding your foot that tells the story of engineering excellence.

The MBT performance running collection consists of unique and proprietary SensorTechnology™ combined with the MBT modified running "rocker" construction and minimalistic support plate.
Combined with the rocker bottom Pivot Axis, a runner's body is cradled in stability as it smoothly makes adjustments to accommodate a variety of terrains.

The optimal cycle of high-performance running – shock absorption, propulsion, support and recovery – is achieved with every footfall, and if you have yet to experience the consummate foot striking platform to transition to propulsion process while hitting your stride, you're in for a surprise.

Anticipate a higher level of comfort thanks to the shoe's Drylex 360° Moisture Management System lining and air mesh upper. Your feet will breathe easy from the moment you lace up your MBT kicks to the moment you take them off.

Are You a Speed Freak?

No shame here. Admitting that speed is your creed is perfectly acceptable in the world of competitive running where a few seconds can mean the difference between a medal and disappointment.

The SPEED 16 provides excellent comfort with a minimal upper design and giving you just what you need to stay fast. Single density midsole construction for lightweight performance. The rocker sole designed with a mid-foot pivot strike that keeps your steps smooth as you move and propel you into your next stride.

Do You Prize Performance Most of All?

If you're nodding yes, the MBT Performance GT 16 is going to become your favourite running shoe pick, engineered specifically to propel a runner forward faster than a double shot of espresso.

The GT 16 is for the avid runner who wants additional cushioning and an improved transition from midfoot to forefoot.

Built for comfort and response in every step. The GT 16 utilizes four unique features to give your run the smooth ride it deserves. The tri-density midsole foam construction provides a customized cushioned feel in every step.

The midfoot sensor combined with heel sensor responds to give you the right amount of cushioning and rebound so you can glide along in your run with comfort.

The rocker bottom guides each step smoothly into your next stride for the ultimate heel to toe transition. It provides cushioning and protection with the Pivot Strike promoting a natural gait with every stride.

Perhaps a Cushioning Fanatic?

We know your type; it's all about the amount of comfort you experience when selecting running shoes because while speed or performance are great, you want to feel as though you're gliding on air – even after you pass that 5km marker.
