We are not worthy
This boot immediately became my everyday footwear this winter. Surprising warmth and water resistance. I only got cold when at a Nordic ski race standing on frozen ground for an hour at five degrees. My only complaint is that the sole is very slippery when wet, I think a lug sole would help for snow use.

Intelligent boots = happy feet
Logical to wear shoes that are the shape of foot. Loved every season but winter-always had to go back to heavy, constricting boots. Then, the Boulder boot! Record setting cold temperatures and record setting snow fall this winter in Maine-these boots were great! Used waterproofing spray and wool socks. Wore all winter for daily use (and some long hikes). Wonderful to feel like I was wearing sneakers all winter and my feet stayed warm and dry! Found my boot for Maine winters!

Great boot, too soft sole
Very close to the perfect minimalist boot. I love the Lems last, the best minimalist last on the market, particularly the generous forefoot/toe height. Great forefoot room, no pushing in on big toe or little toe. Theses boots are great looking, not my highest priority, but we've all known that minimalist shoes could look great and meet 100% of our functional requirements. It's nice that someone made that happen. Some have commented that the sole is too thick, but for Boston winters we need at least this thickness. In cold weather you learn quick that most of the cold comes up from contact with frozen pavement/ground. I have 2 cons: 1) The sole is pretty squishy. To me this is not minimal. A minimal sole should be relatively hard to accurately transmit ground forces. I know a lot of minimal enthusiasts disagree with me, but I would strongly prefer a significantly harder sole. 2) Over winter (bought in Fall 2014) boot developed quite a few frayed/loose threads. Wish list: A true winter boot: waterproof from the ankle down, 5mm thicker sole, and double the insulation in the forefoot (but without losing space in forefoot). I would pay significantly extra for this.

featherlight miracles
In my fifty years on earth, this is by far the most comfortable boot or shoe that I've ever owned. The ability to build foot strength and feel a strong sense of the ground beneath me is unreal. I'll never buy shoes again that have too much support as they are casts which weaken your feet and your overall structure. These boots on the other hand, are featherlight miracles I've waited my entire life for, and for that I'm incredibly grateful.

Great, but no good with icey trails
I have had my boulders for six months now and they have easily become my favorite shoe. The only downside is that they are lost on ice. I've tried them on snowy/icy trails here and I slip and slide from the smooth tread. I'll have to find crampons to wear with them if I want to fix this. It's a bummer because they are great against the cold and surprisingly waterproof for canvas!

Never stop making these boots!
This is my third pair of Boulder Boots, my brown leather ones are my work boots, my black nylon ones are for hiking and flyfishing (breathable and quick drying), the third pair is an attempt to keep some clean boots! It took me so long to find such a perfect boot, the toe box is wide and roomy, they're truly zero drop, they're tough but light as a feather, there's nothing here in Australia like them. Lems if you stop making these, you'll make a grown man cry..

Hiking Boots.
I recent purchased a pair of the Lems boots after reading several reviews online in preparation for a trip to Ireland where I wanted a pair of lightweight boots that would be comfortable and zero drop for all day wear for almost two weeks. They hug my heels with plenty of room for my toes. I wore them right out of the box for almost two weeks straight with no blisters

Good Boots, Super Comfortable, A little awkward looking
Most comfortable things I've ever had on my feet. Amazingly light weight. Everything about the boots was great except for the awkward roundness in the front of the boot as well as the bit on the top of the shoe where the stitching meets just above the toes. Overall the boot exceeded my comfort expectations and slightly fell below my appearance expectations. Also, it is a pretty thick sole for a minimalist shoe. If this shoe were 50$ I would have given it 5 stars.

Ms? Amateur archeologist?
Incredibly comfortable and perfect I purchased the Boulders when I needed boots for an archeological dig in Jordan. We had to walk miles every day to and from the dig, and up and down rough, rocky hills and terrain. These boots have great grip. Even in these conditions, the soles were perfect for me. I was aware of the feel of the ground, which gave me a confidence in walking and climbing, yet they never felt too thin. Best boots ever!! Thanks, Lems!

Awesome boots!
These boots are the best! I have worn them out in the snow and my feet stayed warm and dry. They were comfy enough to wear all day at work, and the shoe easily accommodates thick socks(with room to spare). And of course they look great too! (especially with the orange laces!!).

Great Minimalist Boot With One Drawback
I really like my Boulder Boots. They are super comfortable, very stylish, and easy to slip on and off for an early morning dog walk. The only drawback is the non-gusseted tongue. This is a pain because road/trail grit inevitably finds its way inside and causes discomfort. I had to stop and shake them out on a 45-min hike yesterday. If the next version has a gusseted tongue, it just might be the perfect minimalist boot!

Cameraman's best friend
I'm a cinematographer, working on my feet for 12+ hours a day in a multitude of situations and terrain, often with a camera on my shoulder. These boots survived 3 months of hard use and long days all over South America on a documentary, and truly saved my feet. I would appreciate a little more traction on smooth surfaces, but otherwise they were perfect. I'll be buying these forever.

Very Pleased!
I needed a shoe with a wide toe box, yet a narrow heel (the way a foot is shaped). Came across Lems Shoes and they are perfect. The boots are comfortable and cute. I've hiked a little in them over rocky, muddy terrain and they worked great. My feet pronate, and I have collapsing arches. So, I've always required very good arch support to prevent pain. Recently I also developed a bunion. That's why I began looking for a shoe with a wide toe box (while still maintaining a narrow heel). There's not much choice out there for a shoe shaped the way a foot is shaped! But finally I found Lems. However, Lems shoes have no arch support. So, I figured I would buy the Lems shoes and add my own arch support insole. However, to my surprise, I don't need the arch support in these shoes (the boots and the Primal 2 shoes)! I am pain-free!

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.

Just returned from 25 day trip down the Colorado River rafting and hiking in the Grand Canyon. These shoes felt great the moment I put them on and were great on the rock trail and boulder climbing. I love them!

Won't look at others
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.

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.

Great Minimalist Winter Shoes
Really comfortable, they look great, and with some thick socks, they're warm enough for around the town wear during a Michigan winter.

Philmont Scout Ranch in Boulder Boots
In june, I completed an 82 mile backpacking trip in New Mexico. Rugged Trek #24. We climbed two mountains, Tooth of Time and Baldy. I had been training in zero drop shoes before switching to Boulder Boots so my feet and muscles were ready for the change. I wanted light boots. My pack was 18lbs before food and water. Loaded I was around 35 lbs. The boots made it through the trip and I was never in pain, and no blisters. I also used trail toes to avoid blisters. The boots were comfortable to wear in camp after the long days. They really held up great overall and the lack of a heel was not an issue. I added an after market rock plate just for more protection. The leather at the toe separated from the sole a little. I was able to super glue it back together when I got back. The cavas held up great with no cuts or tears from any of the sharp rocks of which there were a lot. They got wet a couple of times and dried quickly. When the trails were wet they got slick in places. The traction was a little dicy at those times.. The leather along the side and front of the boot is showing signs of cracking. I have tried to treat it with some leather lotion. The leather at the heels take the Philmont brands very well. A great boot for the trip. No regrets on the choice. I am not sure this pair could make a second trip, but I would buy another pair to go again. I had other friends on the trip who bought much more rigid, heavy and expensive boots for the trip, but these were great for me. If the leather held up better and the toe separation had not started, I would have given the 5 stars.
