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 Primus Kids get as close as possible. They are designed for the mini-me natural mover. Made with a speed toggle and durable mesh upper, Primus Kids 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.



We all wear Vivobarefoot shoes in almost all occasions and are like total fans (whole family). Kids also love theirs.

I would just have a comment on the use of this particular shoe:

my kids dress and put their shoes on themselves since 20 months or so.

for my 3,5 year old putting this shoe on is hard work- barefoot- very difficult to squeeze it on, with socks, easier, but still difficult. but after she manages the shoe is tight and great for use.

so just maybe thinking when designing that younger kids need more loosen patent to easily put their shoes on (like other models)

this one was a must for us, for enabling the kid to race comfortably - we still think it is a great shoe and she loves them.

Primus K, mood indigo, EU29

My review is for the the titled shoes (Primus K, mood indigo in size 29EU) for my little son. This is a buy for the future shoe, so I will base my review on an impression basis and not based on how long they will be worn at the. I am sure though, judging from past experience that my son will love them. Their colour is very nice, and the breathable mesh is a very good choice for summer. The sole, just like with my previous review 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, (Neo Velcro) was less stiff and more flexible. On these shoes instead of the velcro, the toggle is used for a more secure and faster tightening of the laces. The toggle though is quite hard to operate (pushing the button and fasten/unfasten), strangely enough, it is the same as on the Primus Trail HG for adults that I bought for my self. I would prefer an easier toggle for kids to operate themselves. Another new thing, compared with previous kids shoes, is the elastic fabric that forms part of the inner top of the shoe, and which encircles the ankle. Hopefully it will not be very tight on the ankle..
Overall, I seems a very nice barefoot kids shoe.

Run, hop, jump, skip....maybe walk!

3 very active kids who never sit still! They have been wearing vivos to school & everywhere else for years. Love the new look shoes, they go from school to dressing up seamlessly
