Confused about the right size of MBT shoes
I intend to buy a pair of MBT sandals with stripes (you know what I mean), but am thinking to do lots of brisk walking, so was trying out the sports shoes. My Adidas sports shoes are size 38. But trying on the MBT's 38 and 3/4 size, the front part is just nice (almost no allowance of space for my toes), so I tried a 39, it has quite enough space for my toes.
However, when I wear thinner or thicker socks causes the back of the shoes to drop off the heel(back) of my foot when I walk.
Now, after reading your article saying you bought a size smaller than your normal shoe size.
My above experience, is it due to:
1) I have the wrong size MBT? (Should I stay with MBT size 38, or do I have to reduce one size down from my normal shoes and tried a size 37?)
2) I didn't walk the correct way which is after getting the pivot of the center of the shoes while stand and when begin to walk, one has to roll the feet about backward to really start walking with the heels of the feet and let the shoes roll the feet forward, and repeat the next step the same way. Am I getting this right and is this way of walking what you guys talk about taking a while to get use to it?
3) Are MBT sandals alright for brisk or heavy walking?
I really hope to get a response as soon as possible, as the store has two more days of 20% off during sales promotion here in my country).
