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.




This being my first minimal shoe purchase I couldn't be happier. I no longer feel caged by my shoes and my toes spread freely and independently, the way they're supposed to. Comfort is nest level, I absolutely these shoes and can't wait to make my next purchase. Maybe some boots for the winter.


I've been transitioning to minimal shoes for a while now and I bought these shoes primarily for exercise. In they gym they transition from lifting to climbing to plyometrics with ease. I do wear them when trail running outdoors, but wouldn't recommend them for a treadmill since there is nothing there for shock absorption Really pleased with the quality - the shoe is thin but the material scores high on quality and durability.

I feel barefoot!!

I have always tried to be barefoot as much as possible my whole life because as a kid I never wore shoes. As a result, I have very wide feet that hate the support of regular shoes and my feet are sore whenever I wear shoes for a long period of time. The Vivo Barefoot Primus LTE are the first shoes that I can wear all day and not be sore at all. It feels like I am barefoot! They have the perfect amount of protection yet you can still feel the ground. Also, they are vegan, which is a huge plus. The toe base is perfectly wide and they run true to size. Best shoes ever!
