    We have an EXCITING giveaway contest for you! Lems would like to give away a pair of their minimalist shoes to a lucky winner! You choose from those listed below!

    CHECK OUT THE NEW RULE BELOW

    AND see the Sweet Jane we have added to the Giveaway Contest too!

    Shoe specifics are below...

    A majority of minimalist shoe companies target the physical fitness market. On a daily average, we exercise 30 - 60 minutes. So, in conclusion, shouldn't we be more mindful of how our feet feel in footwear the rest of the day?

    That's where we come in. Lems Shoes is minimalist, casual shoes that are made with less. We spend our time getting the important things right and eliminate the rest; no added material, no gimmicks, and no fluff.

    Sweet Jane Details:
    Last: LemsLast™ foot-shaped
    Upper: 100% Genuine leather + suede detail
    Sole: 9.0mm LemsRubber™ injection rubber
    Insole: Optional removable 3.0mm MoistureWick foam
    Lining: 100% Moisture-wicking polyester
    Stack Height: 9.0mm (without removable insole)
    Drop: 0.0mm
    Weight: 6.8oz (size 40)
    Width: 3.8-4.0" (size 40)

    Sweet Jane Value:

    Sweet Jane Description:
    Look no further ladies, the Sweet Jane has arrived! This sleek and simple shoe is perfect for work and for the weekends. Don’t bother slipping these dress shoes off under that office desk, for your feet will feel comfy all-day long. And if style is more of your concern then keep in mind that the round toe shape and form fitting design not only compliments the natural shape of your foot, but also makes your foot look smaller. So stash the stilettos and make way for Sweet Jane.

    ***************************************​
    Boulder Boot Details:
    Last: LemsLast™ foot-shaped
    Upper: 40% Water-resistant nylon + 60% full-grain leather
    Waterproof: No
    Sole: 9.0mm LemsRubber™ injection rubber
    Insole: Optional removable 3.0mm MoistureWick foam
    Lining: 100% Cotton
    Stack Height: 9.0mm
    Drop: 0.0mm
    Weight: 9.9oz (size 43)
    Width: 4.2-4.4"(size 43)

    Boulder Boot Value:
    $115

    Boulder Boot Description:
    Weighing a mere 9.9oz (size 43), the Boulder Boot is arguably the lightest boot in the world. The upper is made of water-resistant nylon and full-grain leather to keep away moisture. The whole boot is completely collapsible, great for stuffing into a pack during a hike and wearing around the campfire afterwords. There's absolutely nothing to this boot, no heel counter, no toe counter, no shank, and nothing stiff that would irritate the foot. If a barely-there boot is what you're in need of, look no further.

    Boulder Boot FAQs:
    Q: Is it waterproof?
    A: No it's not waterproof. We chose to leave out a waterproof membrane because they sacrifice breathability. The upper is treated with a DWR water-resistant coating. When this begins to wear off, we suggest treating the nylon and leather with a spray on Scotchguard, Nikwax, or something similar.
    Q: Is it vegan like the original shoe?
    A: No, because the Brown colorway uses full-grain leather. We are coming out with a Black colorway in October made of all vegan materials.
    Q: Returns?
    A: We accept returns for 60 days. For exchanges we will actually ship out the replacement free of charge. See our Easy Returns page for more info.

    ***************************************​
    Primal 2 Details:
    Last - LemsLast™ foot-shaped
    Upper - Microsuede + air-mesh (100% vegan)
    Sole - 8.0mm LemsRubber™ injection rubber
    Insole - Optional removable 3.0mm MoistureWick foam
    Lining - Moisture-wicking polyester
    Drop - 0.0mm
    Stack Height - 8.0mm
    Weight - 6.9oz (size 43)
    Width - 4.2-4.4" (size 43)

    Primal 2 Value:
    $95

    Primal 2 Description:
    Weighing a mere 6.9oz (size 43), the Primal 2 feels like nothing at all. We've updated the original Primal with several improvements. The upper is made with a no-sewn construction, so there's no seams and stitching. The air-mesh is open-weave for better breathability. Rest assured the Primal 2 still sports the favorite 8.0mm LemsRubber™ sole and LemsLast™ with the comfy Feelgood Fit.

    ***************************************​

    Mariner Details:
    Last: LemsLast™ foot-shaped

    Insole: Optional removable 3.0mm MoistureWick foam
    Lining: 100% Genuine leather
    Stack Height: 9.0mm

    Weight: 7.4oz (size 43)
    Width: 4.2-4.4" (size 43)

    Primal 2 Value:
    $105

    Mariner Description:
    Ditch the socks and hit the docks with these stylishly, breathable boat shoes. With their 100% full-grain leather and mesh uppers these shoes allow your feet to breathe in the seashore scents without getting all choked up. And forget the funk, because the smooth leather lining keeps the odor away. Hook yourself a pair, and let them compliment any outfit.

    Mariner FAQs:
    Q: What about us vegans?
    A: In Spring 2014, we will be releasing a 100% vegan boat shoe. So just hold your horses, please.
    Q: Returns?
    A: We accept returns for 60 days. For exchanges we will actually ship out the replacement free of charge. See our Easy Returns page for more info.

    the sweet janes look perfect for running AND work.. I love Mary Jane style shoes and I have to wear leather at work- which has limited me to one pair of my minimalist shoes since the rules changed.. since I had just bought 2 pairs that weren't leather upper the week before the change!

    I could use a pair for stomping around snowy New Jersey. Everyday shoes for me are Merrell Street Gloves, just too porous for the slush.
