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.

    Lems are a game changer!

    Back story,

    A year ago I was having injections in my left knee (as frequently as they could give them) read an article about barefoot shoes and figured I'd give it a try. At $25 for a co pay and $111 for every injection what did I have to loose.

    Got a pair of bolder boots and correct toes. Went to Alaska with the only shoes I took being my boulder boots . No issues at all and loved my boulders. Came back from Alaska and noticed that when I would go to work every third day to the fire department after a few hours in my station boots my knee would start hurting . So I bought some lems primal Zens in black and wore them throughout the summer months . Loved them and had no complaints still wearing them on my days off but really needed something waterproof. Ended up buying a pair of the waterproof Chelsea boots and some black leather dye(although it pained me to dye the sweet brown leather) a few coats of polish later and now I have the perfect station boots to wear on duty at the fire department. Thanks lems for making such a great product that has helped change my life and take away the knee pain .

    Anyone needing a great waterproof boot , look no further Lems Chelsea boot has you covered!

    Hurry up winter

    Very comfortable, once I get my Sasquatch foot thru the top opening. I will however recommend them highly to my human friends here in the woods..

    I’ve only worn these around the house, but they are the most comfortable boot that I’ve slipped my foot into.

    I have plenty of other lems shoes, so I have no doubt these are going to be fantastic.
