Lems has an exciting new addition to their Fall 2023 line with the Boulder Boot Grip, a fully waterproof leather boot for year-round use.
Based on feedback they got about the traditional "Waterproof Boulder Boot" model (now discontinued), they have improved the sizing and fit as well as the grip when designing this new model. They also added a comfy collar and quick lacing hooks!
Quick lacing Speed Hooks for a secure fit and easy on-off
Lightweight and flexible compared to conventional leather/trail boots
Zero drop: no raised heel, you are flat on the ground
Foot-shaped: wide toe box
Medium ground feel: wear with or without the insole
Now fits true to size according to Lems! Occasionally our customers go up half a size for a roomier fit.
Lems uses unisex US sizing: each boot is labelled with both a men's and women's size.
Leather naturally stretches and moulds to the shape of your feet with wear
Triangular footprint shape
Medium volume fit (width and height of shoe)
Average width model
Laces help adjust the fit around the midfoot
Sloping/mountain toebox shape
Width in the forefoot area is centered
The Boulder Boot Grip offers medium groundfeel and flexibility.
The EVA foamy midsole and slip-resistant rubber outsole are cushiony and comfortable, and once the leather breaks in they will bend and flex as you navigate your terrain.
The Boulder Boot Grip is suitable for most customers who are new to barefoot shoes, and for experienced minimal shoe folks seeking a waterproof boot that is zero drop and grippy. If you are new to barefoot shoes, seek out education on transitioning safely.
Lems recommends using Nikwax or Otterwax products to maintain your waterproof leather boots. You can wipe off leather with a damp cloth to clean them in between treatments. Keep leather boots away from heat sources as dry leather can crack.
For those who loved the original Boulder Boot and are looking to upgrade, the Boulder Boot Grip are a dream to wear! They retain all the best features you remember and add highly requested better grip along with other thoughtful design additions.
If you want a waterproof boot that's comfortable and capable in all conditions, these are a fantastic model to try!
