VIVOBAREFOOT PRIMUS TRAIL SG
240g (UK 6) www.vivobarefoot.com
You get a snug, secure fit around the foot with these almost watersport-looking shoes. There’s a knack to getting them on – fold the heel down, slide the foot in and pull the heel back up. The grip is excellent for deep mud and very much at home on sloppy hilly trails rather than any road sections or hard-packed tracks. It’s light and has a zero heelto-toe drop that barefoot and natural running enthusiasts will love. With little cushioning, you can really feel and respond to the trails. Impressively, it’s made from entirely vegan products. It has a very wide toe box and the sizing comes up a half to a full size large.
