Keep your kids' feet connecting
to their brains

Our feet evolved over generations to run wild and barefoot, but this isn't always ideal - so the Mini Primus get as close as possible. They are designed for the mini-me natural mover. Made with a speed toggle and durable mesh upper, Mini Primus is built to withstand all your little wild thing’s adventures. They are light-weight and bendy with enough room for the strong big toe to balance and move skilfully. Its ultra-thin sole protects feet while allowing them to feel.  


A wonderful product

I am super happy with my children's Vivos. They are exactly the right width; size is exactly right, not larger or smaller which is great for purchase predictability. The mesh fabric is very soft and breathable. The tab velcro tab is solid and very comfortable for children to put shoes on and off themselves. Insoles are nice and solid, and I hope they won't be sweaty in our hot summer. The sole is magnificent (I think :) still waiting for my own pair to check for myself), and my children are still too young to notice the difference with the non-barefoot shoes. They seem to be very comfortable and free in them. I would definitely purchase again, for both children and us, the adults. Thanks, Vivobarefoot, and good luck!

Mini Primus K, black/red 29EU

My review is for the the titled shoes (Mini Primus K, Black/Red in size 29EU) for my little son. As most of the times, this is a buy for the future shoe, so my review is mostly on an impression basis and not on a long term wear basis. Colour wise the shoes are very nice and my boy liked them. The sole, I find it quite stiff on the toes and on the ball of the foot and the heel, but there is some flexibility in between the toes and the ball of the foot (mid foot). I think that the sole on previous kids models, e.g. the Neo Velcro (which my little boy currently wears his 2nd pair and cannot take off) was less stiff and more flexible. It is nice that the velcro is used often on kids shoes as is very practicable and my boy can fasten it on his own. A new thing, compared with previous kids shoes, is the tongue of the shoe which seems to be a cut-out part of the outer mesh of the shoe and not added/stiched inside and mesh. I think this will make putting on the shoes even easier.
Overall, I think is a nice barefoot shoe.
