Primus Lite Iffley Road Mens - Navy

The Primus Lite, our lightest and leanest barefoot exercise shoe, is now part of the Vivobarefoot X Iffley Road collaboration. Discover natural movement and put your feet in control for every road run, walk and workout. The unlined vegan upper and super-thin sole lets you train hard while working on your technique.

We're confident that after experiencing the joys of natural foot freedom, your feet won't want to go back to 'normal' shoes.

So confident, we've introduced a 100 day trial to all orders. If you change your mind within that period, we're happy for you to return your shoes for a full refund with no hassle.

Your trial will commence automatically from the date your order arrives. Simply check out with your shoes as usual and we'll take care of the rest. (Standard Ts and Cs apply).


Primus Lite is our lightest and leanest vegan shoe for every run, walk and workout.

Less shoe, less weight – more freedom to move. We had a vision for the lightest movement shoe possible; a shoe that followed the natural shape of the foot and had the least possible interference with human movement.

  • Fused upper material – minimal seamless construction
  • Breathable mesh - to help keep your feet cool
  • TPU sole – our thinnest sole with the best ground feel and durability

My First Minimalist Shoe

I am 37years old 177cm 83kg. My feet are wide. I normally run about 7 to 10km 6 days a week on concrete with an average pace of 5’08” km. I bought these shoes primarily for running however they are nice looking shoes that I can wear casually too. My previous running shoes were Skechers Go Run Ultra R, so for me, these are my first minimalist shoes. My transition seems to be going fairly quickly. I have only had the shoes for one week. I started cautiously with my first run at 700m but within the week I have built up to be able to comfortable run 5km in them. I did have a little pain around one heel the second day probably from running too intensely, too quickly, and maybe dropping from the forefoot to the heel a little heavily. The balls of my feet felt a little bruised the first couple of days but they feel fine now. I wear socks with them but I think toe socks would be better to let your toes spread more easily. I start each run off very slowly with a moderate walk until I am warmed up and after the run I do a few stretches. I plan to gradually work my way back up to 10km and beyond but happy, where I am already, and with the shoe build quality, and look. International delivery time to Taiwan was as estimated at checkout and I opted to pay tax on delivery which was about half the price of Vivos pay tax prior option. I have really been focusing on improving my running technique and I think these shoes have helped me to do that. I have only worn these shoes this week but tried on some of my other shoes and boots and was surprised to feel how much my toes were being squashed by the other designs. Hope that helps.
