Primal (prai-mul)
1. Being first in time, original, primeval.

The Bedrock Primal draws inspiration from the all-natural footwear humans have worn since the dawn of time. The Primal uses a premium 5mm dense vegetable tanned leather sole - designed and constructed to fully mold to your feet and last for the long haul. Think cowboy boot meets huarache sandal. Built for minimalist running, hiking, traveling, and walking. The Primal leather sole begins it's life stiff - and with time, moisture, and wear the sole gains both flexibility and moldability. We buff the footbed with a special beeswax rub to protect the leather, give you extra traction, and make them smell amazing!

The Primal sole performs great across dry trails, roads, and all non-slick surfaces. On runs across sharp and rocky terrain, the Primal's dense sole leather acts as a rock plate protecting your feet from bruising. If you're looking for the best in traction across ultra slick rock and slippery man made surfaces consider our Earthquake Sandals or Syncline Sandals. Made in our small factory in Virginia, USA with quality materials and craftsmanship.
