These Primus Trail II All Weather FG offer even greater protection from the elements with an all-weather mesh upper and a extra grippy sole. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The footwear also carries with it some serious eco credentials, including the fact that most of the shoes are fashioned recycled, post-consumer plastic waste. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Primus Trail II All Weather FG are fairly sleek and simple, with a large, flat tongue that keeps debris out of the shoe and a quick release lacing system. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
It takes some getting used to running in barefoot shoes. A slow approach is needed to re-train the brain into a forefoot focus, rather than heel-striking. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Thanks to the ultra-thin sole, it's possible to feel everything under foot, allowing the feet to send signals to the brain and improve stability on the trails. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
This won’t be for everyone, but if you really want to get back to nature and feel the trails beneath your feet, it doesn't get much better than this. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
