Avoid Shin Splints with the Proper Footwear

If you’re the type that likes to get-up-and-go, you may also be the type that sometimes gets sidelined by injuries. The last thing you want when you’re adventuring the world is a shin splint, so we’ve put together a list of ways to better enjoy your days without injury. 

Stay Safe Outside This Summer

While it might still be better to play it safe by socially distancing, that doesn’t mean you have to spend all of your time indoors. Don’t have a backyard? That’s okay too. No matter where you live, there’s plenty of places to soak up some sun or grab some outdoor adventure while keeping 6 feet apart.

Are You Wearing The Right Size Shoes?

Foot pain is the worst. While there’s a multitude of things that can cause it, some simple troubleshooting could help you heal and avoid it altogether. It’s probably not surprising that footwear plays a big part in injury prevention and overall comfort, but what should you be looking for when it comes to keeping your feet feeling good?

Looking for the Perfect Vegan, Eco-Friendly Pair? Look No Further.

They say that you should dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Well we believe the canvas Chukka can do anything it wants. Good looking and lightweight thanks to the canvas upper and IBR outsole, you’ll almost forget you’re wearing anything—especially when you realize you haven’t experienced a second of toe rub thanks to a toe box big enough to be featured on MTV’s ‘Cribs’.

Prevent Stress Fractures with the Proper Footwear

Lems lives by a minimalist philosophy, which is why all of our shoes feature a maximum drop of 4mm, with our entire Barefoot Series possessing a zero-drop. Part of the reason why we’re such big proponents of avoiding the arch and cushioning is because of stress fractures. You probably have enough stress in your life, why would you want to add more?

Stay Physically & Mentally Busy During Quarantine

If you’re not an essential worker, chances are you’re most likely (and most responsibly) staying home as much as possible. You’re probably also pretty thankful for those who are still working to provide us small comforts, but let’s be honest: being home can be pretty boring. 

Taking A Step Forward

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has consumed the globe, we’re sure of one thing: we will make it through this. During this crazy time of uncertainty, confusion and fear, we want to let you know that we’re here for you, and we will continue to move forward, together.

Chukka Everything You Thought You Knew Out The Window

Because there’s a new Chukka in town. Meet our new favorite, the Chukka Corduroy.

Boat Shoes for Your Everyday

I got these shoes because I liked the look of them and they looked easy to get on and off. I don’t typically like the look or feel of boat shoes, being too boxy and pretentious. These are not. These are subtle and comfortable. For those reasons and the others listed above, I deeply enjoy wearing them. It’s really nice to—when traveling—have a pair of shoes that can suit multiple scenarios—hiking to Sutro Baths in SF or wearing to a film festival, they were great. I really like these as subtle chill footwear I can utilize regardless of circumstance. If you’re looking for an extremely comfortable, versatile barefoot-like shoe, look no further.

Whether you’re lucky enough to call Colorado home, or you’re just looking to take a trip during one of the most magical times of the year, there’s no better place to celebrate Christmas. We’ve put together some highlights of the season in Denver, Boulder, and beyond. 

The Perfect Pair For Your Thanksgiving Activities

Ah, Thanksgiving. This wonderful day means eating, napping, and that the holiday season has officially started. If you’re looking to fill the time between breakfast and your Thanksgiving feast, we put together a list of great activities. And because nothing pairs with holiday traditions like a pair of Lems, we’ve added some recommendations of which pair you should lace up.

Is Zero-Drop Right For You?

If you’ve been hearing about ‘minimalist’ or ‘zero drop’ shoes and you’re interested in dipping your toes in the barefoot pond but don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place. Transitioning to zero drop is fairly simple, but like anything, it’s important that it’s done correctly. If not done correctly, transitioning to zero drop can cause more harm than good when it comes to the health of your foot. But first, let’s figure out if zero drop is right for you.
