Slushies belong in cups, not the insides of your shoes. Whether your Winters are rainy, bitterly cold, or the snow didn’t get the memo that it’s officially Spring, our waterproof Chelsea boots keep the elements out and the warmth in. 

From fall through the last throes of winter, these boots will be your trusty companions. Built on the same outsole as our beloved Primal Zen, you can expect the same zero-drop, lightweight, and ultra wide fit.

This boot can be dressed up or down, worn to the office, bar, or trail.  The Espresso colorway features a fully waterproof membrane and oiled leather upper so there’s no need to worry about the forecast. Just pull them on and go! 

Because of the oiled leather and waterproof membrane you will find that this upper is stiffer than the suede version, so if you're looking for a softer feeling right out of the box, then try the Chelsea Boot Cedar instead.

We recommend ordering UP 1/2 size from your normal US size. If you plan to wear a thicker sock, consider a full size up.

Unsure of your size? We recommend ordering 2+ pairs at a time, as we offer a flat shipping fee of $5.95 & free exchange options for US customers.

This shoe is available in only one width. It is built on our WIDEST Natural-Shape Last. (see image below)



With its waterproof membrane and full-grain oiled leather upper, this Chelsea Boot will keep your feet cozy and dry.


Places the forefoot and heel flat to the ground correcting posture, aligning your spine, and encouraging mid-foot strike.


Unlike traditional footwear that squeeze the toes together, our foot-shaped toe box allows for maximum room giving the toes ultimate freedom to wiggle and spread.


Our proprietary IBR outsole is what makes Lems incredibly lightweight and flexible - giving your foot the sense of weightlessness.

    So far so good.

    Really liked boots. Helped my sore feet. Looking to buy again. Size runs small. I wear 10.5-11 in dress shoes. 11 - 11.5 in running shoes. And 11.5 in work boots. And the LEMS SIZE 12..

    would like revamp

    i am a lem's fan and have several different pairs. was excited for the chelsea boots but let down. they run really small- didn't fit even after 1/2 size increase. also do not care for the toe, it is weirdly tall and hard. also don't really like the sueded type leather. going back to my favorite boulder boots!

    Great Boots!

    Really wish this purchased worked out for me but unfortunately it was a no-go. I’m usually a size 10 in Lems; went with their suggested sizing (.5 size up) but they were too loose on the ankle. Exchanged for my usual size, but the spacing was very limited for my toes up front. These boots are as comfortable and stylish as they are practical, I’m really bummed on the turn-out. Good job, Lems!
