MBT: The original Rocker Technology shoe! I love this shoe. It's an incredible workout -- I'm woking muscles I seriously never knew I had. I am getting toned up fast! I have never once felt in danger of falling but I do feel the need to hold myself in balance. You stand straighter and your spine stays in alignment.
MBT Shoes are not cheap. They are an investment but well worth the money spent. www.mbt.com

MBT is the swedish design long before sketchers shape ups. MBT are approx 2.5 pounds when weighed SSU much lighter MBT $$$ compared to SSU $$ have worn and used both for 12 hr ER shift MBT support lasted much longer then SSU I have only had SSU for 3 an time to replace MBT lasted 9mos for support
I like the lighter wt shoe but I love the better support of the MBT cost effective wise the MBT is the better choice due to the fact the support of the MBT last longer. SSU are easier to find in stores. MBT at specialty stores mainly or online.
There are a lot of "rocker sole" type tennis shoes out there (Skechers, Rebook etc), but MBTs are the best. They are pricey (check Ebay), but worth it if you have knee problems like I do. I tried them on to provide comfort for my feet, but they really provided relief to my knees immediately.
