This new and improved, hand-stitched, full grain leather shoe will not only look awesome, but it will leave those little friends at your feet feeling happy and healthy.

Do me a favor and take a look in your closet at some of the traditional footwear that you might own. Then take a look down at your feet. See any similarities? My guess is probably not. Unlike your close friends down there on the floor, most shoes are often extremely narrow heading up towards the toes, with an elevated heel – which more often than not can cause unnecessary stress on the ball of your foot. These two characteristics alone can lead to toe ailments including bunions, plantar fasciitis, along with many other issues.

Here at Lems we aim to provide our customers with a line of shoes that mimic the natural shape of the foot, eliminating these harmful and rather annoying foot problems. For this reason alone, we are continuing to create new and improved products that can satisfy the needs of not only you personally, but also the needs of your feet.

Soon to be available, on Thursday, January 14th, will be the Mariner (Gen. 2) in color Walnut!

Weighing just 7.4 ounces, this shoe is composed of all full-grain 1.8mm thick leather, with no lining, ensuring maximum coolness. This shoe has been developed with the same Lems 9mm thick casual outsole, which is composed of Lems IBR 64.

We also have enhanced the insole of the shoe, as it is composed of 1.0mm pigskin leather and 4.0mm breathable open cell PU. You know what that means? No more barefoot funk!

The wide toe box is hand-stitched and we have also improved this new model of the Mariner by lengthening the tongue of the shoe, compared to the original Mariner. This zero-drop design allows for adequate foot room and ensures overall healthier posture.

And as always, the new and improved mariner will be completely collapsible – perfect for travel and storage.

We are very excited for this new and unique Mariner (Gen. 2) to be released to all of our customers and available for purchase. Make sure to keep an eye out for what we have in store for the remainder of 2016 – you definitely won’t want to miss out!

Well, we’re about three weeks in and where’s everyone at on their New Year’s resolutions? My guess is some of you are still going strong and some of you may have called it quits. Instead of making all these crazy rash “resolutions” on December 31st, why not have some attainable goals for 2016?


While I’m the first one to admit that I might not have any business reviewing a hiking boot when I’m not an avid hiker, I do know something about comfortable shoes and I’m always on the hunt for a good pair! Nine years ago, I had a surgery to correct a bunion on my left foot. After enduring several hiccups in the healing and physical rehabilitation process, I chose not to have my right foot corrected. I ended up with one regular width foot that still gives me trouble, and one that requires a wide width and extra support. Finding shoes are are good looking and comfortable is a chore. I have a core collection of shoes that are falling apart because buying new is such a hassle.
