Dear cc cris
There are many varied and extensive benefits. It is best to jog rather than run, as you should not have a long stride in MBTs. So you shorten your stride and jog.
The benefits:
- due to the increase in muscle activation, a 3 mile jog will tire you out and work you out in a way that feels like a 5 mile jog (that's my personal experience, but feel free to put it to the test)
The advantages:
- due to the fact that you have reduced joint loading on knees and hips, the jog is more pleasurable, which is of particular benefit when jogging on hard surfaces that are unforgiving on the knees.

Anyway, it has to be experienced to be believed, and then you won't want to jog without them. I am a little sad that nobody replied to you up until now... strange.

dear cris, lisa
totally agree. customers buy MBTs from us to jog, shorter stride pattern, upright stance, very cushioned, after 5 miles your legs wont ache any where near as much as usual.
no downsides at all to jogging in MBTs, except dont go in puddles, this wrecks the cushioning quickly.
anybody with knee aches etc from jogging, this is probably due to your walking gait being uneven side-to-side, MBTs will not help this at all on their own, you need to buy a footbed insole with arch and heel support to wear INSIDE your MBTs, just take out the existing insoles and replace with your new ones, this will help correct any strabge walking/running gait problems.
good luck brian

I Just started running again for the first time since high school. I am 46 and never ran because I smoked, but also because of shin splint pain. MBTs combined with massage and acupuncture cured my splints and now I am jogging in MBTs, no pain :)

MBTs are my saving grace as far as running is concerned! After a year off due to wicked plantar fasciitis, I tentatively tried a few short trots in MBTs. No pain! Running buddies commmented that I wasn't 'lurching' like I used to. I also notice that my posture is much better; more upright, shoulders back. I wear my MBTs with Orthoheel inserts cos they feel better that way. I can now run consecutive days without a care in the world! (between 7-10 kms per day). Interestingly, when I started running on consecutive days, my foot pain decreased even further! I put this down to the MBTs improving my foot strength as well as activiting calf muscles which previously were not working constructively. I am SO glad to be able to get back out there!

I am a heavy dude, in my 50s and in good aerobic shape. Of all sports
I like jogging. I have everything one needs to collapse arches, damage
knees and hurt the back. I am however careful with shoes and routines.
MBT are excellent for guys like me. The cushioning is excellent and
the rolling of the foot is similar to the rolling routine they teach
soldiers when they take a significant fall, spreading the impact over
the entire foot. Because of their special built, MBT shoes warm you up
faster and after 15 minutes you are in a perfect Masai floating
routine that feels as if you could keep up forever runners know this
feeling. Since I use MBT I gradually gave up on ice after a run, gave
up the lumbar belt and the knee protectors I was using. The only
downside they are a little expensive.

I have worn MBTs for walking now for a number of years but since
starting to jog twice a week and wearing a normal trainer I have
experienced some discomfort in my hip. For the last two weekends I have
worn my MBTs. Wow is all I can say....the discomfort has gone and the
jog is much more fun. I had considered being fitted for a running shoe.
No need I already have mine!

I have attempted to jog every year and give it up as I always end up with an injury to one calf or the other and it takes 2 months to heal. This year I attempted to jog in MBTs and have not had any problems at all. If anyone has experienced similar difficulties I suggest you try jogging with MBTs. I have used MBTs for walking for a few years and it did not occur to me to try and jog in them. I have spent a small fortune on top brand running shoes not realising I had what I needed at home.

I ran for the 1st time in my new MBT's this morning .It took a little getting used to, but
in the end I found I was very comfortable in these new shoes/joggers.
I'm 63 years young & very grateful for my fitness. These new MBT's will help improve
my fitness & keep me on track.

Can I run in MBTs to help stabilise my big toe thats a bit riddled with osteoarthritis? I
really miss running! I've been given a gait analysis (severe pronation) and fitted with
trainers to help with that but they make the toe joint hurt a helluva lot. I wondered if
MBTs would relive the pressure of impact and perhaps protect the joint?

Mum - I had hallux limitus/rigidus in my big toe - arthritis - and for
a couple of years, before I finally got it operated on and fixed, all I
could wear were MBT's. I didn't jog in them - though I do now - but
they protected my toe from flexing, so I would say yes, give them a try!
