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.

MBT Ari Black Mesh Women's Shoe

  • 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

      These shoes are absolutely gorgeous! I just got them in today and could not be more pleased. I have a narrow foot and the fit is much better than the old MBT's I had. While I loved them, after so many years of wear, they had a "blow out" on the heel portion and I needed to upgrade. I wanted the higher platform and this style fit the need.

      This was my first purchase from Footwear etc., and the experience was great! I am a fan of MBT's from way back, this was my 7th pair to purchase!! This style is by far my favorite one ever!! I read all the reviews and debated on which style to choose. I am so happy I choose the Ari, it for sure deserves 5 stars in my book!! I will say, that this style is very narrow, which works great for me, but if you do not have a narrow foot, this style is not for you!

      I have had lots of sports type MBTs, but these have no cushioning. I removed the innersole and the footbed is made out of hard plastic. Had to return them.

      I have worn MBT daily for about * years. THese are thhe very best. They have helped to alleviate my lower back pain, improved my balance, strenghtened my quads and hamstrings and the vent system does keep my feet cooler. Plus, they are great looking.

      I'VE BEEN WEARING MBT FOR YEARS AND HAVE A PRETTY GOOD COLLECTION. THE ARI HAS TO BE THE BEST EVER. SO COMFY AND I CAN WALK FOREVER, NOT TOO A HEAVY A SHOE LIKE THE REST OF MBT. VERY HAPPY WITH THIS SHOE. WELL MADE AND WORTH THE PRICE. LOVE FOOTWEAR ETC. GOOD COMPANY. I READ WHERE REVIEWERS ARE SAYING THE SHOE IS NARROW, I HAVE NO IDEA SINCE I HAVE A VERY BONY FOOT AND MOST MBT FIT PRETTY GOOD.,WITH A FEW EXCEPTIONS.

      Runs narrow in width. Much sleeker than earlier models of MBT Shoes. Great cushioning. Definitely a beautiful and comfortable walking shoe. Wish the white model did not have black trim.
