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.

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.

    Love Them

    These are my first pair of Lems. They are great. I’m hoping their durability is as great as how good they feel. If so, I’ll definitely be purchasing these each time I need a new pair of work boots.

    Heed Lems's sizing note....

    After 2 returns, finally ended up with the right size I'll be comfortable with. First time, only decided to go 1/2 size up from my regular size 8 even though I wasn't planning to wear "thick" socks (think thick hiking socks...) with these boots, but even with medium thickness socks, 8 1/2 were too small for me. Easy return, asking for a size 9 on the 2nd attempt. About a 2 weeks later, get the new pair, but for some reason, I was shipped a size 11 -- way too big and never going to wear that many socks---, so had to return another time. Good thing Happy Returns instructions and locations made it easy and convenient for me. Another 2 weeks pass and finally got the size 9 that fit me well. Take good consideration to the sizing note Lems has on their website! Pleased with the looks and quality of the boots.
