Primal X - New Favorite Shoe

I prefer to run in zero drop shoes but my previous go to small business shoe manufacturers got bought out by a big brand name and lost their charm. I jumped at the Tarkine's when my wife showed them to me as the company has all the same passion that attracted me to my previous zero drop shoes. Having been through several pairs of regular running shoes in the meantime, and because I have never run barefoot shoes before, I eased myself very slowly into the Primal X fully transitioning to them as my main shoe over two months. I am writing this review following a 25km road run in them this morning.

My feet are relatively wide and I love the room provided for my toes to fully splay and feel comfortable. The soles strike a good balance of road/trail feel without transmitting painful rock jabs. I was a little concerned about how the shoes would feel descending hills with the elastic laces but after 150m climbing then descending again yesterday and 400m today they felt perfectly natural. With regular highly padded shoes I have to focus on my stride all the time or I revert back to over striding and other bad practices. I was confident that the barefoot shoes would keep these problems in check and sure enough my cadence significantly increased from the first wear and I naturally forefoot strike in them.

Good for high volume feet

The good: These suit a high volume and wide foot. Good grip, and a good balance between protection and sensory feedback on rough terrain.
The bad: The innersole is not the best quality. Started slipping around and tearing on first run.

Excellent minimalist shoe!

Super comfortable, true to size, great grip, very lightweight - highly recommend this shoe for minimalist fans :-) I’ve enjoyed them on several muddy & rocky trail runs and they perform really well- I’ve only just got them but they certainly look & feel well-made.

The stretchy laces are a cool idea- although makes tying/tightening them up a bit more time-consuming, and you end up with lots of loose elastic to wrap around (might just trim mine), but it does make it really comfortable on the top of your foot having a more stretchy lace :-)

They’ve really nailed the design of these shoes, the perfect kind of minimalist feel underfoot. I’m excited to run in them more!

Excellent customer service too and environmentally-conscious approach- really like this brand already, been recommending to my friends and will 100% be back for more.

Thanks so much for such a great product!
