masai barefoot technology

I live in the Uk and in my daily paper today there is a feature on a range of footwear, developed in Switzerland, called MBTs - Masai Barefoot Technology. The footwear is supposed to help back problems, foot problems, posture etc by changing the way you walk. The range seems to be available only through chiropractors/Pilates teachers and other specialists who also train you how to walk in them. I don't know if they are available in the US, but if so, I wondered if anyone had any experience of them? There is a website explaining the concept of MBTs at http://www.mbt-uk.com
