Be Lenka Prime: Is it Worth The Hype?

Are you looking for the best barefoot shoes but just don’t know where to start? Let’s take a look at the Be Lenka Prime to be specific. This shoe is classified as a barefoot sneaker. Walking barefoot has a lot of benefits for your mind, body, and soul, and this is one of the reasons why barefoot shoes have become so popular in recent years.

The Be Lenka Prime, are leather sneakers that have a thin sole, thereby allowing you to feel the ground more accurately than if you were to run wearing regular sneakers. Experts say that when you feel the ground more, you are more likely to be more responsive and hence get a better result. Whilst this may take some time for your feet to adapt, in this article we look at the Be Lenka Prime in detail. Let’s dive in, shall we?

Aesthetics

These shoes are lace-ups and have a very thin sole, such that you hardly see it when you look at the shoe. The sole is only 4mm high. The design is such that you can wear them in different settings, whether it is with formal looking clothes or with sports attire. They are available in four colours, black, red, mustard, and white. The look is such that they are unisex.

The upper and insole are both made of leather, whilst the lining is made of TPU. Even though they have a wide toe box, they still look good, which isn’t the norm for a lot of wide toed shoes.

Sizes

These shoes come in sizes 36 up to 46. This caters to both men and women. The toe box is wide, which means that your toes will have more than enough room to splay and explore the ground just like they would if you were barefoot.

Feel

These shoes are made of leather, which is soft and comfortable to wear. The heel has zero elevation and zero toe spring. This way it creates the feeling of walking barefoot. However, if you have never walked in barefoot shoes, it may take time for you to get used to them and find them comfortable. The sole is flexible and as such, it moves and moulds according to the way that your foot moves.

Durability

They are made of leather which is highly durable. This also means that as long as you take care of the leather properly, your Be Lenka Prime shoes should last you a decent amount of time. They can be used in wet or cold conditions, as long as they have been treated with waterproofing spray or any protective layer. 

Price

These shoes are slightly on the high end in terms of pricing, especially when compared to shoes that look similar. This may be because of the barefoot technology and delicate balance with style and comfort, that the manufacturer has had to come up with to get a result that will please the target market. 

Verdict

Finding barefoot shoes can be hard if you’re not sure what you are looking for. However, the Be Lenka Primes are easy to adapt to even if you’re still wrapping your head around barefoot shoes. These shoes are both fashionable and sporty. You can have the best of both worlds with this wide toe barefoot shoe. 

We think it’s a great buy if you often find yourself transcending between the two looks, sport, and fashion. However, it is important to note that these shoes are not made for rigorous sporting activities. This is marketed as a barefoot sneaker, with one of its main thrusts being a stylish appearance.
