The peak pressures will surely be reduced in the beginning, but over time the soft eva chosen by MBT will begin to give up and the effect is minimised. In fact there is a heel rocker delay with this shoe that as I see the shoe age with different users becomes quite apparent. Rotationally unstable for the STJ sitting outside of any reasonable balance point for the individual. This is a shoe designed to be a 5 month throw away. The shame of it all is that a local dealer is selling them for 360 per par canadian dollars. And in the beginning they were quite literally bieng touted as a foot cure all. Venality in the shoe world is without limit. I was having elderly ladies coming in who were of obvious advanced knee OA sold them as a very good aid to the knee pain. The varus in this poor woman was only made to apply a larger force load through the medial compartment as a result of this shoe.

FYI - The sensor in MBT shoes is PU, not EVA.
