Are the Primal 2 soles non-marking?
-They are not non-marking.
Can you clean the Primal 2’s in the washer?
-With the full IBR outsole, high heat in the washing machine can shrink the shoes. With that being said, machine washing is NOT recommended. Instead, we suggest using a soft scrub brush, soap, and lukewarm water to remove any dirt or stains. Make sure to allow your shoes to air dry completely for 24hrs before wearing. *Please note: if you soak your shoes in hot water for a long period of time, this can cause the dye fixative/mordant to be removed and can result in the color running.

Larger sizes in the Primal 2?
-Good news! We plan to offer larger sizes in Fall 2018 for the Primal 2. This size run will be in select colors only.

Sizing for the Primal?
-The Primals are built on a different outsole compared to our other styles, therefore, we do have a different sizing chart for the Primal 2. We recommend that you purchase your regular US size, but if you are between sizes, we recommend purchasing the larger size. Click to view Primal sizing chart

Are the Primal 2’s vegan friendly?
-Sure are!


I recently bought your Primal 2 shoes a few months ago. I am 22 years old but have have foot pain for the past 4 years from bunions. For the first time in all that time, my feet don't hurt at the end of every day. I have worn both the toe spreaders and the shoes I got from you every day since I got them because of how they make me feet feel.

I want to thank you for having the idea, the creativity, and the commitment to designing these wonderful shoes!   

I have had chronic pain, foot, toes and otherwise, for most of my life.  I bought a pair of Primal 2 and within two days, yes, two days, my foot pain was gone!  By the end of the first week my chronic knee pain was gone and my low back had improved.  I am working with a renowned PT (former PT to the Olympics) and she is doing fascia release on me and wearing my Primal 2's every day has enhanced the success of my treatment tremendously!

I also wanted to suggest you to make the primal all white, and if you do someday please let me know.

I just ordered my 4th pair of Primal 2 for women. These are my FAVORITE shoe I wear 99% of the time. I wear through the soles in 8-9 months when I play pickleball (check it out on Youtube) so I want to make sure I always have a backup pair. I’m just writing to say you have a wonderful product and Please, please, please do not change it or improve it. It is perfect as it is!!! Thank you.
