Featured:  2014 BACKPACKER GEAR GUIDE

Weighing a mere 9.9oz (Mens size 43), the Boulder Boot is arguably the lightest boot in the world. The upper of the Black Boulder Boot is made of 1200-denier nylon and is 100% Vegan. The whole boot is completely collapsible, great for stuffing into a pack during a hike and wearing around the campfire afterwards. There's absolutely nothing to this boot, no heel 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.

Sizing 

Lems Shoes fit true to the USA sizing below, please do not refer to the EU sizing of other shoe brands.

Note: To give yourself additional volume in the shoe try removing the insole.  Our insoles are designed to be removable to adjust to different volume feet.  Also, when wearing with Correct Toes, we recommend removing the insole.



FAQ's

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 45 days.  For exchanges we will actually ship out the replacement free of charge.  See our Easy Returns page for more info.


Featured Testimonials

  I recently tested the Boulder Boot on a 62-mile hike through Glacier National Park.  You may be asking yourself, "If you do not market the Boulder Boot as a performance hiking/backpacking boot, why would you post a review of the product on a 6 day hike?"  Confidence - that's why.  I was confident that the Boulder Boot would be able to withstand everything a 180 lb frame with a 50 lb pack could throw its way. And I must say, the Boulder Boot not only withstood the abuse, but it far exceeded my high expectations.  Here's the link to my full review full review.

Rating Great Winter Boots
These boots are prefect for most winter days. The toe box if foot shaped, they are super light with a great ground feel.

Rating Home Inspector
I bought these to compensate for winter weather. I have a pair of Primal 2 I have been wearing for work over the last year. These boots are light, relatively flexible compared to other boots, and thus far durable. No real gripes. The toe box does feel a bit narrow unless you take the sole out, then you have more room for the toes to splay comfortably. I have not yet applied a water proofing membrane, but intend on it. The FAQ link for these has a product recommendation for doing so.

Rating So happy with the Boulder Boots
I work on a concrete floor all day and my feet don't hurt! I wear my correcttoes in them while I work. I work at UPS, a very physical job and they are holding up well after about a month of use so far. There is a little fraying on the cloth upper at the toe seam, which doesn't bother me since I use these for work boots and expect them to get roughed up a bit, and it does not seem to be structural at all. My feet are so grateful for these boots!

Rating Great!
Right out of the box, my Boulder Boots fit tight where they need to be and loose everywhere else. The fit is extremely natural and comfortable. My toes have a lot of room to splay out while feeling stable and protected. Canadian residents take note, my boots arrived in six days. Amazon doesn't deliver as fast as these guys. Also, I did not have to pay duty, which I was expecting to pay an extra 15-25%

Rating Feels right
Have had the shoes for 2 weeks now. They are confortable. With freezing temperatures these days, the soles are good with isolating the cold from the ground. The weight of the shoes is a major good argument. I was however a little disappointed about the shiny texture of the fabric. They look matt on the computer. Also, they are not the easiest to step into due to the hight and have to be opened a lot. However,I am pleased with the product.

Rating mr.
My first impression was that they are a bit on the bulky side in terms of feel, compared with similar Vivo products, but after a week or so I'm really starting to like them. These truly are winter boots i.e. I can't really think of wearing them in warm weather (a few degrees above zero Celsius my feet already started sweating in these). Craftsmanship looks good, as with other products I've bought from Lems. Still haven't managed to test them on the water-resistance feature though.

These boots went on sale for half off a month or so after I received them, but that happens I guess. An excellent pair of footwear. I ordered a size or two bigger than normal so that my toes can splay in the toe box and I can fit two pairs of wool socks, as I have a very wide foot. My only qualms are that the outsole forms a 90 degree angle with the ground at the heel (no curve for rolling on), and the laces are a bit long. Definitely worth the money!

My black Boulder boots look fabulous, but they were a tad small to wear them with wool socks. I sent them back for a size up so I can use them in the Wisconsin winters. I am wishing they had a sole and cinching around the arch like the Primal 2's and waterproofing. But all-in-all I still love all my LEMS!

I am very happy to have bought these boots. For a long time I have been looking for some good barefoot boots and these are excellent! My only concern is if these were to ever get discontinued. Everytime that I really like a product, they usually discontinue it. I really hope that as this company grows these boots always stay the same! Thanks Lems

Hands down the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. They are like having slippers on all day. Toe box is roomy for the toes to spread out. I wear them every day!

These are great shoes. The sizing chart worked well and got the correct size. Very comfortable, toes have room to spread out. They're so light weight it adds to the natural feel, like barefoot but not. You have to try them.

+ flexible and light shoes, feels more natural to walk around in + comfortable - although they are wide, they are not wide enough (at least in my case, size 47) to wear with corrcet toes on. the sizes seem for me to on the small side, I usually have 46. If I buy another pair I might even get size 48 to have a little extra space. water proof: for future development I would love to see a similar shoe that have goretex or similiar material that is water resistant

Since receiving my Lems I can honestly say I have put them through the paces. Not two days out the box I took my new hiking boots on ten miles of trail and they never missed a beat. Rock, dirt, mud, and snow. The terrain didn't phase them in the lest. A quality product and prompt shipping. Excellent job all around.

Very happy with these boots. Both upper material and sole are very flexible. Lightweight as well. I did a few short runs with them and they were very comfortable. The sole is a bit thicker than the Vivobarefoot shoes, a good thing!

Trekked the Annapurna circuit last November wearing the Boulder Boots; no blisters and it was great to feel the ground beneath my feet. Not great in wet snow but what boot is (might I suggest making a model using breathable material like "Gortex".I would be more than willing to test them for you.

I have three different Lems models. Boulder Boot - Good fit & comfortable, but noticed bad fraying on the top portion of the shoe after the 1st use. The threads seems to fray very easily on this particular model.

Rating One of the best casual paleo shoes
I have been wearing paleo shoes for 2 years. I have 3 pairs of shoes from vivo barefoot and 1 Lems. I love those because they are very soft and confortable. Also they look good, I really love the strong black color. The aeration is very good, bus as a consequence the shoes are not waterproof. I use it every day for my job.

I bought these boots for work - never having worn minimalist shoes before. I'm standing on concrete all day at work - and my feet don't hurt at all! I was quite surprised by that. I've noticed a problem with fraying material around the seams; but I find that it's easy to clean up using a lighter to burn off the loose strands. I really like the fact that these boots are the same material all the way around and not trimmed with faux leather like the others. Will definitely by these again.

Rating Amazing boots with one tiny problem
I LOVE these boots. They are comfortable, light and, unlike everything else on the barefoot shoes market, actually attractive. These boots are actually wide enough for me to fit my foot in, even with correct toes on. This is normally impossible for me to find. The problem is that the seams around the toes are fraying badly, and have been since around a month of wear. So far it looks to be only cosmetic and I hope that's the case because it would be such a pity if these babies fell apart on me.
