A shoe once thought of as a trailblazer is now viewed as an OG, a respected elder, and a pillar of natural, healthy footwear. The Primal 2 is built on Lems widest last—2E width in the toe box paired with traditional D width midfoot and heel. The foot-shaped toe box has ample room for toe splay and should accommodate Correct Toes for most. The zero-drop footbed is mostly flat, save for a slight (yet flexible) toe spring, which typically flattens more with use.
The lightweight Primal 2 is very flexible and it’s vegan upper is made from super-soft microfiber with a moisture-wicking lining. The 9 mm stack height air-injection rubber outsole provides great
proprioception potential, which improves balance by allowing the feet to better feel the ground. The Primal 2 can be a great shoe for many to start their transition towards more natural and barefoot-like footwear, but it’s also a great shoe long term.
