If you love the Primal 2 you will love the Primal Zen These sneakers are built on Lems “Original” last (their widest) and are actually wider than the Primal 2. The wide toe box allows toes to splay, and Correct Toes should fit nicely inside for most people. Like its predecessor, the Primal Zen is zero-drop (no heel elevation) with a slight (yet flexible) rounding of the toe. This shoe is also flexible in all directions and doesn’t feature any extra “motion control” or ‘support” features, which allows the foot to move more naturally.
The Primal Zen has a 2 mm thicker outsole that isll mm thick overall (plus an additional 3 mm removable insole) The thicker sole provides a little more structure and stability to the bottom of the shoe, making it an excellent transition shoe. Anyone thinking about trying out and transitioning to more natural footwear would do well to start with the Primal Zen.
