Almost perfect
These are the most comfortable shoes I've worn, and I have three pair. However, after just a few months of casual wear my toe has poked a hole through the fabric on both feet (and I don't have particularly large toes). For $100 plus shipping I'd be happier with shoes that last a bit longer. Add better toe reinforcement and this would be the perfect casual shoe.

Mr.
The Primals are definitely comfortable. However, they don't have as wide a toe box as the 9 to 5s. If they had a slightly wider toe box, they would be perfect.

Ineffable!
Not really! They are easily described as outrageously comfortable, flexible and surprisingly durable. I bought these to abuse - from hiking on rocky / muddy TN terrain, casual wear, and the athletic demands of free running and balancing (various terrain, including concrete). My Primal 2 Lems stay where they are supposed to: on my feet without shifting. They provide ample cushion for the rocky terrain, as well as 7' depth jumps. I would (and do) gladly recommend these to anyone.

Don't Buy These!
If you ever want to wear other shoes of lesser quality. After wearing these bad-boys non-stop for about two years, whenever I put on a pair of non-minimalist shoes my feet feel as constricted as a Japanese girls' feet from the 1500s. Let your toes spread people!

Perfect shoe for my foot! I am a woman who wears a size 10 street shoe. Years of wearing cramped shoes have caused hammer toes and foot pain, especially at night. I needed this size 44 to allow for my correct toes, and they are perfect for my feet. I LOVE THEM and would recommend them to anyone who is having foot problems. Wish I had known about them years ago. Thanks to Lems for sending me 2 pair to try for size. They are so lightweight and roomy and my feet feel so good now.

I liked the uppers on the "Coffee & Creams" much better for their stiffer shape. I seem to be having trouble with the right heel cup on the "Primal 2's", it doesn't feel as if the shoe is all the way on, and I have to use a shoehorn to put it on. Even then the heel wall wants to collapse. Maybe it's the shape of my ankle or the depth of my forefoot causing this. Also the shoestrings are way too short, almost can't tie them.

Overall - a good minimalist shoe. Only reason it is not 5 stars is that I would prefer a totally flat level around the arch. There is a bit of a grove easiest seen on the bottom of shoe that protrudes a bit. All and all, a great replacement for my Saucony jazz originals.

Love the looks of these shoes. I've been warning a pair of Merrell Road Gloves anf these have a similar feel, except they are a little rounded on the bottom...I hope on the primal 3 the keep the same great looks, yet flatten the sole a bit. I have wide feet and love the toe box. Have 2 pair of the 9-5s and these all fit my feet great!

Most comfortable shoes I've ever worn!
These are hands down the most comfortable shoes I have ever put on my feet. I've been researching ways to work on my posture as it is something I've neglecting my whole life. This lead to my shoe research. I've been trying to find the right zero drop shoe for walking and working out. I've tried another brand and Lems has it right. I find myself wearing these most of the time whenever I need to wear shoes. They weigh practically nothing, are super flexible and straight up ridiculously comfortable. They are very breathable during the summertime. There is also the perfect amount of thickness to protect my feet from walking on extremely hard surfaces such as concrete and asphalt. Thank you Lems for going against the grain to make a high quality product and caring about your customers first rather than only making cheap crap and ruining people's posture like other major corporations. You guys ROCK!!!!!

New and Improved
I bought these Lems to replace a worn old pair of Stems (this company's previous incarnation) and I worried I wouldn't love the new ones as much. On the contrary, these shoes are every bit as comfortable with better construction and durability. I wore those Stems every chance I had (running, gym workouts, weekends, etc.) and they still served me for years with amazing comfort. I fully expect these Lems to outlast them. Thanks for the shoes and the great customer service, Lems!

Just buy them already
I've been wearing the Primal 2 Slates for about two weeks now and I LOVE them. I hate wearing shoes, which brought me to Lems Minimal zero drops. They are really like walking around barefooted. I've received compliments from day one and my feet feel amazing. I'm struggling to resist the urge to buy a pair in every color. So you won't be disappointed. Get these shoes!!!

They're the most comfortable shoes I've ever had. They feel unbelievable great. Very wide for my fingers. I had a small problem and service response was excellent. So far I can only say good things.

Comfortable, flexible, and even a bit stylish. Only the pair of Boulder boots that I bought last winter are as comfortable as these shoes.

Mr.
I love these shoes. They are now my every day, every where shoes. I would never wear shoes if I didn't have to but since there are places that I do have to then Lem's Primal 2 are the next best thing. Minimal, flexible, and light with classical styling make these the shoes that allow me to embarrass my wife in public by climbing through the landscaping outside of a restaurant.
