My first pair of primals are coming up on 4 years old, and I am debating about having them overhauled vs replaced... They have served me well through countless miles, countries, terminals, and polluted tarmac in my job as a pilot and aviation consultant, so I am partial to having them reconditioned... But a sneak peek at the next gen might just tip the scales that direction instead...
Biggest obstacle was the price, almost 5x the cost of any shoes I had ever purchased before. I know you are small and cannot spread the costs out to many copies of the shoes, but that is probably the number one thing to work on (without sacrificing the soul of the shoe/quality of course!)
But it did make a difference in lower back fatigue and sciatica after my back surgery. Going back to work boots with a heel periodically reminds me of why I wear primals at work, vibrams when working out, and minimal sole casual shoes the rest of the time!
The shoes came in. I'm thrilled.
Maybe some first thoughts would help?
Outstanding. I really like the way the shoes look normal but allows for a fit much more in line with my physical values and goals.
The shoe tree and bags are a wonderful addition. Provide more value than expected, right?!
I appreciate the note saying not to work out in them. I actually had to stop myself from playing soccer with my kids when I came home.
I'm an officer in the Army. I love that I can wear these shoes in uniform. I love that I get to represent your grandfather in the process too.
Can't wait to get the brown shoes and check out the boots when you're done!
Best of luck, Mountain. Really hope you're build a successful business offering a great product.
I reached for my Chronology as my go-to shoe for an international wedding and did not regret it one moment.
The trip was to India, and I knew that I would be wearing dress shoes for different occasions across my weeks of travel including: the ceremony itself, celebrations and receptions, pre-celebration/receptions, and every dinner in between where I knew I would need look sharp and stay comfortable for long hours on/off my feet.
I love my Chronology for the natural foot posturing (extremely flat feet) but also the top notch materials ensure my feet shoes a lighter feel than any other dress shoe that I own. Damn important when you are spending hours on end on the dance floor.
Your shoes are AMAZING. I continue to be blown away by the look/feel of them.
Can I just say that I love - absolutely *love* - my @PriProShoes? http://t.co/ndVg3H8cOc— KeithNorris (@KeithNorris) October 1, 2014
@ErikSchimek @PriProShoes Glad I found these *after* I left corporate world, otherwise I may not have been so inclined to jump the shark ;)— KeithNorris (@KeithNorris) October 1, 2014
It was like I was wearing slippers, but nobody knew it. (full review on Toe Salad)
The PriPros are just too comfortable to wear anything else! They are still looking great after years of constant wear, and my feet still feel great at the end of the 13- to 16-hour days. (follow-up review, three years later, on Toe Salad)
