VIVOBAREFOOT has extended their Primus Collection with the new Primus Lux WP (winterproof). The Primus Lux WP has been re-designed for the colder months, with their premium wild hide leather uppers and stretchy airprene collar for a sock like fit. Give your feet the ultimate sensory experience through the city streets this winter.

The Pittards wild hide leather soften over time and is water-resistant treated. This will keep moisture out while keeping your feet warm. Additionally, the removable thermal insole gives you 3X additional thermal protection. Without the thermal insole, you’ll see a leather footbed and it is perfect for sockless wear, my favorite as I don’t wear socks. I prefer the leather footbed so would have the thermal insole removed whenever I can.

The major difference between the original Primus Lux and Primus Lux WP is an ankle sock construction for the collar giving you a sock-like fit around the ankles. However, if the toe box does not have enough volume for your feet and ankles, remove the thermal insole. This will make it a lot more comfortable as the collar might scratch your ankles if too tight. The original Primus Lux did not come with a thermal insole.

For those of you with narrow feet like my female wear tester, it took them a while getting used to the excess volume in the toe box. She was walking and compensating in a funny gait so her feet does not slide – it sounded like she is marching…
