We here at Lems Shoes don't always wear shoes, but when we do we choose the Primal2. If lightweight (6.9oz), flexible, breathable, foot-shaped, and flat are all characteristics that you look for in footwear, than look no further than this shoe. The Primal2 is assembled using a no-sewn construction, which allows the shoe to comfortably form to the natural shape of your foot. Lightweight microsuede and open-weave mesh, allow your foot increased airflow and better breathability. The low-profile 8.0mm LemsRubber™ sole brings you closer to the ground for a more natural stride. Our LemsLast™ design, with its natural foot shape, provides you with that Feelgood Fit that we pride ourselves on. So whether at work, walking the dog, or running errands, the Primal2 is certainly the 'go to shoe' for you.

Muy Beuno!

These shoes are great! I don't wear any other shoe. They are sturdy and comfortable enough for long hikes through rugged wilderness and they even work on city sidewalks...go figure!

My Favorite Shoes

The Primal 2 is just as flexible and more durable than my Feiyus. They also look a lot nicer than my VFF and my NB Minimus Zero MT00s. The insole added a too tight feeling and an arch support, which was awful. After removing the insole they instantly became the most comfortable shoe in the world. The Primal 2 is now my favorite shoe, and probably the best shoe I've ever worn, ever.

Aspiring Earthling

Love these shoes very much so. I require my shoes to be as minimal as possible and with these Primal 2's that's just what I got! They are very lightweight and function extremely well. The quality of each shoe is top-notch and I've received many compliments noting that the style is keen as well! Very soon after getting my pair I took to the streets; the shoes felt great and produced zero discomfort nor can I come up with any complaints! Awesome shoe! Give thanks!

Finally! no-BS shoes

I've been looking for proper casual shoes for quite some while and guess what? Found them here on Lems. Thanks for making them!! The shoes are very comfortable, breathable and light-weight. So folks: 'Select them, buy them, wear them and love them.'

Great Shoe

I have had a few pairs of minimalist shoes for casual wear before. I especially liked the look of these. These may very well be the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. I personally removed the lining for the extra room. My initial criticism was that I didn't love the look of the mesh on top but I ate my words pretty shortly. The breathability it introduces to the shoe is great. I wear these almost every day and often ride my bike with them. You can feel the breeze come right through.

My Favorite Shoes!

I have an original pair of Stems (look like primal 1) and they've lasted longer than I ever expected. I tore a tendon in my toe and since switching to these, my feet and ankles are stronger than ever. These shoes really make a big difference in your quality of life. I highly recommend. You have to get used to them, but once you do take out the insoles and wear them full time.

Great Shoe!

I love your shoes, thanks for making them. Like many, I originally found the barefoot movement because I was intrigued by the "toe shoes". As it turns out, however, being in the Army I can't wear shoes with separate digits. I began looking for a minimalist shoe that would work with my PT uniform. I tried on all kinds of shoes and never found one that was quite right. I was about to give up when I saw your shoes at a running store by the home where I grew up in Utah.

feel the breeze!

Ordered these for work shoes and they are fabulous! Definitely more rugged/utilitarian looking than pretty but super comfy; great "ground feel" and, best if, I can feel the breeze on my toes! Only issue was the tongue of the shoe hit my ankle at an uncomfortable angle -- most likely because I have super high arches. Taking the laces out of the top hole solved this problem completely. All in all, very happy with this pair of shoes.

comfortable and insanely light-weight. Easy to put on without unlacing.

Nice update

The Primal 2's are a nice update to the second generation Leming. The entire shoe is crafted better with less stitching & has a removable insole. I don't think they're quite as comfortable as the Lemings, but still one of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. You will NOT be disappointed.
