VIVOBAREFOOT PRIMUS TRAIL SG 348g Men’s UK10 www.vivobarefoot.com
Saving your feet comes alongside saving the world for Vivobarefoot – the Primus Trail SG is made from recycled tyres, using animal-free products and processes. When it comes to running, the shoe is no less impressive. The lightweight lugs perform well on wet terrain and drain effectively – we tested these in a SwimRun and were more than happy with their performance. The puncture-resistant sole has not weakened with use, and the secure laces ensure a precise fit. The curved shape of the shoe’s rear hugs your heel, too – the design is foot-shaped rather than shoeshaped, which feels incredibly natural to run in.
VERDICT A great ecofriendly design that performs well in poor conditions.
