The Original Boulder Boot from Lems-- a unisex barefoot boot that has all of the natural features you’ve been searching for, all while promoting healthy foot development, better balance, and increased mobility in the feet, legs, and back. If you're ready for a 9.9oz boot (size 10M/11.5W) that can pack down into the smallest of daypacks or carry you on the farthest of journeys, then it’s time you rock the Boulder!
Features Zero-Drop soles, a foot-shaped extra roomy toebox (perhaps one of our widest available), super flexible and light fabrication for proprioception when wearing them or ease when packing them for a trip (then again, why keep them stowed when your feet could be this happy!).
Some of our clients wear the Boulder Boot year-round in Toronto after a DIY waterproofing and the addition of a cozy layer like our cashmere Tabi socks. They are very durable and have a slightly longer break-in time than some of our casual shoes, that is to say, they are comfy from the get-go but they will mold to your feet and the way you use them over time.
Black and Pinecone colours are completely vegan. Timber has leather trim.
Lems has recently switched from EU sizing to US sizing, but they stillrecommend going half a size up. If you like a roomier feel or want to wear them with very thick winter socks, you may want to order a full size up. If you have any questions about size let us know!
