Primus Lite is our lightest and fastest movement shoe. Designed to put your feet in charge with less shoe allowing for more movement.

The upper is made of a lightweight, breathable mesh, made in a mixed yarn combination of nylon and polyester, refined to give maximum breathability, whilst still giving the durability you need to train hard. Primus Lite gives you the ultimate barefoot experience in the gym, on a road run or just out and about in the city.

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.



Fit Like A Glove!

These shoes are fit me feet more like a glove then most socks do! You also get excellent ground feel and absolutely zero weight. Even though they fit my foot so closely, I can still wear my Correct Toes with them (as long as my socks are thin or I don't wear any). These are ridiculously comfortable and just as ridiculously good looking. I am extremely happy with my purchase.

Love these!

My husband and I each got a pair of these about 3 months ago (he got men's black, I got women's red). These are our first pair of barefoot shoes, and we love them! We wear them whenever we go out for walks or to run errands, and also at the gym for anything besides running. I'm still getting used to not heel striking, and these make it a lot easier to learn.

I fit a size 9 perfectly, and am usually a 9 in a tennis shoe/sneaker. I love the roominess inside the shoes, not to mention the design is super cute! I wear these to work on casual Fridays :)

First experience with VIVO shoes and I LOVE these?

I truly am in love with these shoes, love the "barefoot feel". I'm wondering if there is a style that would work for my 2018 thru hike on the Appalachian Trail?
