The MBT Afiya is an athletic women's lace-up light weight trainer perfect for getting in shape or just getting some shopping done.

MBT shoes change the way you use your body so that your muscles, back, and joints work as a unit to compensate for the shoe’s natural instability. The unique multi-layered sole and Masai sensor help you to achieve improved posture and balance, strengthen and tone muscles, and reduce pressure on your joints as it emulates the feeling of walking on sand. The rolling motion of MBT shoes is greatly beneficial to those with plantar fasciitis and other types of foot problems.

MBT Afiya Scuba Blue Synthetic/Mesh Women's Shoe

Features include:

  • Breathable synthetic/mesh upper
  • Light weight training shoe
  • Dual density midsole is made with TPU and nylon mixed with glass fibers for extra firmness and durability
  • Multi-layered Sport SS14 sole creates natural instability to emulate the feeling of walking on sand
  • Casual rubber outsole provides good shock absorption and traction
  • Removable insoles so that you can add your own orthotic insoles

MBT has updated the new Spring 14 line by making the Masai Sensor in the sole waterproof so it will not break down when wet!

This MBT style features removable insoles so that you can add your own orthotic insoles. Although to fully benefit from the MBT technology the MBT shoes should be worn without orthotics.

If you have any questions you can find the answers in our MBT Shoes Frequently Asked Questions section.

    Narrower than previous trainers from MBT
    • Rating:
      Good Enough
    • Comments:

      These are considerably narrower than any pair of MBT's I've owned. They are extremely light and current looking. I too prefer a thicker sole for working out. They are fine for walking but anything more punishing than that leaves my feet in pain for a day or two after.

    MBT Afiya review when new
    • Rating:
      The Best!
    • Comments:

      I have been wearing MBT's for about 5 years now whenever I walk very far. They were originally recommended to me, by a physician, because of years of problems with Plantar Fasciitis that persisted beyond all treatments short of surgery. This current pair has performed well. I've only had them for a few weeks so at this point they have only about 60 miles on them. They are extremely comfortable and supportive.

    Good Casual Shoe for Everyday
    • Rating:
      Excellent
    • Comments:

      This shoe turned out to be a good substitute for the model I preferred, but was unavailable. As with all my other MBT shoes, walking in this shoe relieves the pain in my knee and back; the technology of the soles and insoles adjust my stride for more comfort. I would recommend this shoe for everyday use for anyone with knee pain after walking moderate distances.

    light and comfortable
    • PROS
      Nice looking, light weight, comfortable.
    • CONS
      Would like more cushioning under the foot. Not good on cement or concrete ground.
    • BEST USES
      Walking,running on a track or soft surfaces ( carpet or grass or suspended floors)
    • Rating:
      Excellent
    • Comments:

      I love the cheerful color, perfect for spring and summer, I would give it 5 stars if the sole was a bit thicker as the ground still feels a bit too close to my own foot, but then again the light weight is nice as well and perhaps one must suffer for the other. All in all another great shoe by my favorite shoe makers!

      I loved this shoes when I bought it in August but it only lasted until November. The shoes laces got thin fast and the mesh tore fast. I will not get this material anymore.

    Great shoes - now only use these for running!
    • Rating:
      The Best!
    • Comments:

      These are the best! I have Mortons neuromas in both my feet and almost had to stop running (my highlight of the day). With these MBT's I'm able to keep on running and so far no more foot pain!! They do make you work a little harder than regular running shoes - so as long as you're not running any races...they're great! Would highly recommend.
