Three Things To Look For In Travel Shoes

Having a tough time deciding what to choose when it comes to selecting the perfect pair of minimalist travel shoes? We’ve put together a list of what matters most when it comes to finding minimalist casual shoes that stand up to the toughest travel criteria.

Outdoor Holidays to Celebrate in Nature

With 2019 flying by, it’s important to celebrate the outdoors before Winter sets in. And while you probably don’t need an excuse to spend some time in nature, these holidays are a great reason to remember why getting a little wild is a good thing. So go out and conquer the great outdoors with these holidays that will take you through the end of the year. 

Why You Should Go Outside

While we’re not your mom, we’ve taken a page from her book by recommending you put down your phone, step outside and grab some fresh air. And, ironically, it’s the best time of year to do it. Why should you get into the great outdoors? Keep on reading for a few great reasons. 

The Trailhead - Version 2

At Lems, we love our customers and we value their opinions. That’s why when we heard the feedback regarding the Trailhead, we listened! And because we are on a never-ending mission to create not only the most functional shoes, but shoes that make our customers feel great, we made some adjustments and are now proud to release the Trailhead V2. It was a labor of love with suggestions taken from those who know Lems (and their feet!) best. Here are the features we’ve updated for the newest edition of the Trailhead.

Meet The Mesa!

The Mesa is the newest shoe in Lems’ Mountain-to-Town collection. It fits like a sock, but performs like a shoe, and best of all, it comes in one really good looking package. So if you’re seeking the perfect transition shoe with a little more cushioning, look no further, the Mesa has it all.

What To Wear, Where

Sweet summertime! Whether it’s wedding season or sweating season, we’ll give you a full rundown of the Lems roster, and where to wear what, when.

 

How A Great Transition Shoe Prepares You For Zero Drop

If you know Lems, you know we love a good minimalist, zero drop shoe. But since the release of the Mesa, the newest edition to the Mountain-to-Town series, we’ve received a lot of questions about the Mesa and Trailhead’s featured 4mm drop vs our original zero-drop shoes, and the most efficient way to transition between the two.

The Perfect Day in Boulder, Colorado

It’s no secret that Boulder, Colorado is an adventure-seeker’s paradise. From sunrise bike rides to moonlit hikes, this little town on the edge of the Rockies offers a myriad of fun activities for anyone who loves the outdoors. It’s also a town on the cutting edge of style and outdoor-wear for the adventure enthusiast. As the home of Lems - the best option for minimalist footwear - I thought it’d be useful to lay out the perfect Boulder day and how each pair of Lems makes it even better.

The Cause and Correction of Bunions

Long-term use of narrow shoes has lasting consequences on the foot’s functional anatomy and are legitimately tied to bunion formation - a painful bony bump that develops at the big toe joint. While many believe bunions are inherited, research backing this belief is uncertain. More firmly established research provides evidence that narrow shoes, especially on feet that are still growing, is the root cause of bunions.

Wide Toe Box Shoes are Pivotal to Foot Health

Today’s narrow shoes continue to add to the deformation of the human foot, whether we know it or not, and whether we want to accept it or not. Lems aims to stop this trend in its tracks. All of our shoes and boots are designed with a wider than average toe box to allow the forefoot to spread and the toes to wiggle as wide as they’d like.

What Makes a Good Minimalist Shoe

For positive results in building a healthier, more functionally strong and enduring foot long-term, you have to get your feet working on their own, independent of external support. This includes arch support, wedge inserts and motion stabilizers, components of which make up most traditional running shoes. What’s most problematic about these structural reinforcements is that they silence muscle activity and engagement in the feet, wearing down foot strength over time, which is an inescapable fact.
