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.

I've had these LEMS for a few weeks now, and I am really happy with them. They are very light, comfortable and roomy and look good too (I have the black ones). So far I've used them at temperatures of down to about -15C (10f) with regular wool socks and liners and had no problem, but I intend to get heavy wool socks for when it gets much colder. I checked and they are really water repelent.

An absolutely outstanding boot. I end up wearing this every day I'm not working. My feet feel healthier after changing over to these and I'm sold on the brand as a whole. Great job.

Rating My Feet Couldn't Be Happier!
This boot is stylish in any season! they look great and feel amazing, my toes can move around and breathe without feeling constrained or confined. i've been a proud supporter of Lems Shoes for a long time. Andrew certainly did his research when he started this company, focused on the foot and not the dough. As much as i'd prefer to be barefoot all of the time, we all know that's not always possible or reasonable… that's ok. Slip on your Lems and you're good to go! thanks guys!

Rating all the freedom of being barefoot with the protection of a well made boot
I bought these as a winter boot and they are irreplaceable. They're my favorite shoes because they are so versatile. I've worn these everyday since I got them and have taken them from urban landscape to the Texas bush. Really well made, athletic boots. You can run and jump in these like you're barefoot.

Rating Very Impressed
These are hands down my favorite pair of shoes I've ever owned. I bought them to wear for work, and they are perfect. Super comfortable and light, like wearing slippers to work, yet I feel completely protected from anything I might step on. They're great in the snow, too. I'll be getting more pairs of Lems shoes!

Rating A Great Alternative to Leather Boots
I purchased these for my husband, a life long leather boot wearer, as an alternative to a Fila tennis shoe he was forced to wear with a special ankle foot orthotic due to his Foot Drop (neurological affliction). This was the first boot with a wide enough toe box that would allow his orthotic to slide inside easily. He said this boot is very comfortable, and he likes the ankle support. Plus, I think they look great on him. Thanks Lems for giving my husband the ability to wear a boot again.

I was looking for a pair of minimalist shoes for work. Ended up falling in love and using it as my primary, everyday go-to boots. Sooo comfy, superlight yet rugged, and beautiful. My feet are very wide, and ive been struggling to find comfortable, practical, and good looking shoes my whole life, especially since I moved to minimalist/barefoot footwear. These are, by far the best option for me on the market today. Thanks a lot! :-)

Rating Super Comfortable
I bought these for my husband, who doesn't just have a wide toe box, he has Fred Flintstone feet. Previously he'd only been comfortable in Vibrams or barefoot. Then he tried these on. He kept saying "They're so light! They don't weigh a thing!" and "They're the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned!" This guy is tough to please but Lems is a winner in our house.

I've worn these every day since I bought them a month ago. They are very light and comfortable. I chose to fully waterproof them, and they are working out perfectly.

Rating My New Biker Boots
I recently switched to wearing only minimalist sandals to ease my low back pain, but I couldn't ride my motorcycle in sandals. I'm quite pleased with the Boulder Boots. They have great traction and are nice and flexible, unlike traditional biker boots. Of course, there's no padding on top, so I must shift gently, but that's fine. Love that they're vegan, too! Side note: I ordered men's because women's are normally too narrow for me.

Rating Genius alternative boots
Very pleased of these boots. The inner shoe is very confortable, i felt it was a bit bulky but after a week my feet occupy all the space without problems. The toe box is wide and it's very enjoyable. The outer shoe is resistant and after an hour under the rain my feet wasn't wet. I think there are classy and discret in black. Thank you Lem's team for your honest work. I hope seeing your products in France one day.

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.

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!
