    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!

    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.

    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 Sizing:
    All Lems Shoes have a unique foot-shaped fit, this is because of our LemsLast™, which we've taken time to design to have the widest toebox on the market. It's designed to allow all 5 toes to splay apart inside the shoe, and at the same time it follows the natural curved shape of the heel and midfoot. Please see the site for details on how to size your shoes.

    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.

    The Boulder Boot comes in brown.

    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.

    Primal 2 Sizing:
    All Lems Shoes have a unique foot-shaped fit, this is because of our LemsLast™, which we've taken time to design to have the widest toebox on the market. It's designed to allow all 5 toes to splay apart inside the shoe, and at the same time it follows the natural curved shape of the heel and midfoot. The Primal 2 is sized the same as the Primal 1 was. It comes in US whole sizes, so some people may need to size-up to the next closest size.

    Winner's choice of (Men's) Black, Brown, or Slate Grey; (Women's) Black, Brown, Sky, or Frost. See site for details.

    I've been looking for shoes like this to wear while teaching. These look as though they'd work wonderfully.
