Wonderful boots. The only draw back is the lack of a Gore-tex liner. The boots become virtually useless on rainy days in the Pacific Northwest and anywhere else that sees consistent seasonal rains. No spray on waterproofing treatment cuts it in any environment that sees even infrequent rainfall. Please make a breathable waterproof version of the Boulder boot, a simple Gore-tex liner, with the material cost and workmanship passed on

ANSI certified please
Please make a model with a safety toe and puncture resistant sole! These do not fly on industrial jobs, and it would be great if there was a version that did.

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!

Great boot....but....
Love my boulder boots for everyday wear. I have even hiked over 40 miles in Yellowstone followed by 15 miles in a full backpack. The only drawback is no full leather option. That would make the boulder boot a truly usable outdoors boot. The lack of water resistance is a pain if things get even moderately wet. Mine are sprayed with Kiwi water protectant and that works well for light conditions. C'mon Lems! Give is a boulder boot in a lightweight leather option that can be fully water proofed! THEN you'd have perfection.

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

Physical Therapist
I am a Physical Therapist who specializes in a natural foot care approach to restore function of people's feet. I wear the Boulder Boot and Vivobarefoot shoes to work and around town daily. I recommend this shoe to my patients regularly. I haven't found a better shoe for someone who wants a shoe that doesn't deform their foot posture, looks good, and has some cushion.

Deployed Nerd Needed Boots
Having had a couple of issues with the sizing and durability on Primals, I was a little hesitant at first to order a pair of Boulders without trying them on, but honestly, my Keen boots have been killing me during my 12 hour shifts here in Afghanistan. I had to try something to keep the swelling down. A 30 year old man in reasonable shape should not suffer from foot pain. The relief I've felt since wearing these boots has been instant and sustained. I'm a huge fan. They look great, they feel great to walk in, and they keep my feet from hurting when I sit at my desk for long periods of time. Solid win. If I had to take issue with anything, it'd be my concerns about durability and water resistance. I'm going to be putting some hard wear on these shoes and I'm concerned that the stitching is not going to hold up to long use and constant wear. If I had my 'druthers, I'd like to see an all-leather version of the boulder in a color like your brown ninetofives. I feel like it'd hold up a little better and I would not have to worry about going to get my waterproof but uncomfortable boots. You could remove the cloth inner and keep it as just supple leather. Like an uber- moccasin.

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!

They look great but...
These boots look great but they're simply not wide enough, the toe box tapers too much so my lovely Mortons toe is squished. The footbed is narrow so I have a blister in the middle of my foot. The sole is too stiff. Basically my feet are tired at the end of the day. I'm switching back to vivobarefoot

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.
