Xero Shoes Ipari Prio

Product Review (submitted on 12 January 2018):
I'm so pleased i bought these shoes - they run really nicely and enable a good barefoot running form. In the summer months, i run with the open-toed, laced Custom and that's fine. but in the UK during the winter months, the woods and field tracks become muddy and sludgy, so that an open sandal is a no-go. And this is where these shoes excel: I don't quite know how they've done it, but there seems to be very little slip on mud, despite the shallow grip on the sole. It really is unexpected! Perhaps it is down to the contact patch of the sole being maximised with a well structured edge? and also that if you run with a true barefoot form, you plant you foot vertically and so would not experience so much slip sideways or back and front. I also run with another barefoot shoe brand, which has more rounded edges to the sole, and that has less grip, so it must be the design. So come on Xero Shoes - let's have a Prio Trophy, with the thinnest 4mm sole from the Connect sandal!
