Vivobarefoot x Woolmark 3D knitted shoe upper

High performance sock-free sneakers

Using advanced 3D knitting technology Vivobarefoot has harnessed the performance benefits of Merino wool and created a sock-free shoe upper for their popular Primus Knit and Magna Trail styles.


Benefits of wool face masks 


Odour resistant
Naturally odour resistant, integrating Merino wool in the shoe upper reduces shoe odour risk.
Wool is naturally breathable. 3D knitting technology enhances this through knitted channel pipes that act as vents along the sock-like upper.
Reduce waste
3D knitting technology reduces the wastage of the material as there is no need for cut-and-sew techniques to create shape.





Both Vivobarefoot’s Primus Knit and Magna Trail styles are Woolmark-certified Wool Performance Blend. The wool upper has been rigorously tested to ensure fibre, fabric and performance quality.

The Woolmark technical team has been involved in this innovative material development and performance evaluation. To learn more about the 3D knitting technology and specialist yarn support and recommendations contact the Woolmark Technical Team.
