Our verdict

Off-road barefoot trail shoe. Run free in the woods!

  • Positive
  • Lightweight, flexible and vegan friendly
  • Negative
  • Minimalist so proceed with caution.

First impressions

When considering ‘barefoot’ or minimalist shoes for the first time, trail options remain our recommendation for taking that first step. Given the uneven nature of the terrain you’ll naturally have a more considered approach and with the ground being softer the minimal cushioning won’t be as much of an issue.

If you want an even more 'less is more' model, check out the Primus Lite II


There really isn't one. There's a removable thermal insole to keep your feet dry and warm 


The upper has a drawstring fastening system and works well with the broader toe-box to create a good fit.


This trail shoe from the barefoot specialists provides grippy outsole lugs with a durable protective sole for a robust yet flexible shoe to take you off the beaten track.


The shoes are made using recycled materials as well as being Vegan friendly, so provide an environmentally conscious solution as well as a practical one to off-road running.

Technical info

A high-performance vegan style, perfect for exploring rural or urban landscapes.

Made with recycled PET plastic bottles, and featuring a bio-based BLOOM insole - train hard while treading lightly on the planet.
