The MBT Ari is the inaugural style in the new "Ultimate" line of shoes which garnered this year's Red Dot Award for Product Design! The first shoe in the physiological wellness footwear arena to do so!

Athletic-styled shoe in a variety of colors to satisfy everyone! Enjoy a good workout with this fun, breathable shoe. The unique multi-layered sole and Masai sensor emulates the feeling of walking on sand.

Ari’s outstanding ventilation system includes a highly breathable mesh upper, lightweight sock liner, and inlay sole.  Biomechanically-engineered pillars in the sole increase the air flow as you step, and the lasting board contains ventilation portals so that your feet stay significantly cooler and drier than in other shoes.

Features include:

  • Uniquely designed "Ultimate Activator" provides the highest level of muscle activation as you walk
  • Lightweight 3D mesh upper and lining are highly breathable
  • Powerful built-in ventilation system that helps keep feet cool and dry
  • PU coated materials are durable and resistant
  • Dual density midsole is made with TPU and nylon mixed with glass fibers for extra firmness and durability
  • Built on a contoured last that replicates the shape of a human foot
  • Ari’s insole is antibacterial, removable and washable
  • Multi-layered Activator sole creates natural instability to emulate the feeling of walking on sand
  • Durable rubber outsole provides excellent traction
  • The MBT Ari is a limited edition, individually numbered, shoe

      Who in their right mind would pay this much for a sneaker? Only a person wanting the absolute ultimate MBT shoe. If you already wear MBT and are sold on it this will take things to even a higher level. If you haven't worn MBT I would not start with this model. Maybe buy one of the others that are on sale to see if you are going to like them. For experienced MBT'ers this new line is even more unstable that previous ones. And I mean that as a compliment. It maximizes both comfort and performance. There's more squish all the way through to the forefoot now. Will give you the most workout when walking. Does take more energy to walk in which I find good but some others might like the easier ride of something like the Jambo's. MBT seems to be widening the line and separating into various levels of instability. This is part of the Ultimate line and it really is.
