Professionally I have assessed many types of footwear and have worn minimal footwear for 5 years- joggers and sandals.
This shoe ticks ALL THE BOXES:
UPPER- Good fastening mechanism and material
TOEBOX- Wide, good depth and no toe spring
SOLE- thin and flexible.
I LOVE that my 26 bones and 33 joints always have the chance to spread, move and adjust to the ground surface I walk on.
If you have doubts, talk to the team at bPrimal.
Personally, I use them for CrossFit, walking, working and I lOVE the " barefoot" feeling I have when I wear them.
FIVE stars with thumbs up and gratitude from me.
This shoe would cater to most feet shapes
I bought these shoes for the thinness of the sole and the flexibility of the shoe, in order to forefoot walk, and I absolutely love them! Faye was incredibly helpful ascertaining my size, and as such, they fit like a glove. And I mean that, as the material is almost like a super soft and thin wetsuit material, so it envelopes your toes and foot without limiting it at all. The quality is fantastic, and I wear them with no socks or no-shows, depending on the weather. They are easy to put on and off, and are sleek enough to not be daggy when worn with athletic/active clothing. I could not recommend this shoe enough, or the excellent service and knowledge of footwear at BPrimal!
I received my shoes the other day and absolutely love them! I am super excited to really try these out in my day to day activity as a therapist and owner of a therapy clinic, and a health and wellness facility. Between chasing kids, running two businesses and exercising my shoes tend to take a beating. I have been barefoot for about 10 years now and I have gone through most of the barefoot shoes on the market and to me it seems most companies have not compensated for the width of barefoot people. I am glad to see that your shoes are wider and allow for the splaying of the feet. I have only had them for a few days now but folks are already asking about them (this is fairly normal because i promote barefoot style so folks quickly notice if I am in a new shoe). I look forward to a more extended review as time goes on and will keep you apprised of what I think.
I wear this shoe for everyday use not training. Its an excellent shoe and very ultra minimalist to the point you forget you have anything on your feet. The thin insole moved around too much and kept sliding up so removed it. I wear this shoe barefoot and warm enough without socks now spring is here. Again the quality of the shoe is excellent. I would definitely recommend this shoe for both everyday and training in.
