Our March Favourites

Vivobarefoot Primus Knit in Olive | Available at Sole Mechanics

Our team are super knowledgeable and experienced when it comes to minimal footwear for all ages. We do our best to help our customers find the perfect shoe.

Below are our March picks for favourite shoes stocked in-store and why we love them.

The Primus Knit is one of our favourite VIVOBAREFOOT styles for any time of the year.

The composition of a knit sock fit with leather side panels makes for a versatile shoe with a cool/casual look. The style comes in white, black, olive and navy in both men’s and women’s – making it an extremely popular style for any wardrobe/occasion.

The use of knit and leather ensures the foot breathes but put a pair of thick socks on underneath and your feet will stay toasty on the cooler days too.

A few of the staff members in-store have them and absolutely love the stretchy and soft feel. It is an ideal all-rounder shoe, with the same sole at the performance shoes, yet supporting a sleek look – making it appropriate for work, formal attire, travel or simply a casual weekend shoe.

BOBUX: Timber Boot
The Bobux timber boot is an ultimate shoe for transitioning between summer and the colder and wetter winter days.

We love the leather outer which ensures water and wind resistance, whilst still allowing the foot to breathe.

The flexible sole and soft leather allow the foot to move naturally and provides light protection – perfect for active kids.

Continuing with Bobuxs’ minimal approach, the boot supports the typical wide toe box and flat sole, whilst locking in the ankle and providing protection.

We are loving the rustic olive colour in-store, useful for both boys and girls; the ideal trendy yet practical statement of any outfit.

NIKE: Air Zoom Pegasus
For someone looking to run long distances or walk in a lightweight shoe, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus a favourite in-store.

The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus uses an extremely light mesh, making it a breathable and soft shoe for movement on varied surfaces.

This cool looking running shoe is guaranteed to provide protection, comfort and adaptability for any adult or children.

The style comes in a wide range of cool colours and is finished with the aesthetic nature of any Nike shoe.

Vibram’s KSO Evo is different from the V-Alpha and V-Trail as the ultra-thin sole and incredibly lightweight upper maximizes a grounded feel.

Not only is the sole non-marking, but it is incredibly grippy when used on wet/flexible surfaces.

Given my passion for weight lifting, I find the glove-like fit and lightweight style ideal for primal movements and balance during my strengthening workouts.

This shoe is simple; light, airy and provides maximum traction and durability – making it, in my opinion, one of their most comfortable and versatile shoes.
