Made my feet "happy"!

I started looking into barefoot shoes as a result of very severe pain in the 3rd toe of my left foot. I have been thrilled to be able to find a shoe as attractive and as therapeutic as the primus lux shoes. I would prefer to have a tongue on this shoe as compared to the "sock", but it does make sense the way the Primus Lux Winterproof is designed for more winter wear. It also feels slightly larger than the Primus lux but that can be accommodated by using the insole or wearing socks.

Very Nice Shoe

I was a little worried about how these would look in person as my intent was to try to pass them off as an office shoe. Though they are technically a tennis shoe - I found that I absolutely can pass them off as a business casual, even somewhat dressy office shoe (with the right outfit). And get compliments to boot! They have a very nice profile and don't come off easily as a sport shoe or some frumpy orthopedic get-up. They fit very well and are extremely comfortable. And I do mean extremely.

I just ordered the black pair - knowing I may be taking a risk as sometimes, good looks don't translate across colors. Black or dark leather foot-healthy shoes can often have the misfortune of coming off as "comfort-only" or orthotic like in their appearance. I hope I am pleasantly surprised.

Chestnut Primus Lux Winter Proof

I love these shoes! I've been transitioning to barefoot shoes for about six months now after learning that my shoes were damaging my feet and causing my pain. This shoe in the chestnut color is one of the best looking minimalist shoes I've found. I've had them for several weeks now and have decided I need them in black too!

These shoes don't feel quite as wide as the other Vivobarefoot shoes I have though--not quite as much toe splay room.
