For customers that find the Trailhead and Mesa too narrow, the Primal Pursuit may be just what you need, and probably the highest anticipated style to hit the Lems lineup to date! The Primal Pursuit features the same fit and feel as the Primal 2, but with a bit more oomph, like the Trailhead/Mesa.

The new Trail Traction Outsole provides more grip on the trail, with a slightly higher stack height, providing a bit more cushion for more sensitive feet, yet they won’t weigh you down. 

Think of the Primal Pursuit as a hybrid of the Primal 2 and the Trailhead/Mesa. We incorporated all of the features you have grown to love about these shoe models into one new and improved style!

The Primal Pursuit combines the fit and feel of the Primal 2 with its zero-drop and wide toe box, with the functionality and durability of the Trailhead/Mesa for more rugged Pursuits - see what we did there? ;)

The lightweight materials include an air mesh upper that allows for maximum air flow to wick away moisture and keep you presentable for a post-run brewski. The Primal Pursuit features the same zero-drop heel and wide toe box as the Primal 2 that allows the toes to behave like they are meant to - free and splayed.

You’ll never have to load your weekend getaway pack with multiple pairs of shoes for all of your adventures and social activities, the Primal Pursuit has got you covered for all of it!

TRAIL TRACTION OUTSOLE

Our newly designed outsole has recessed grooves and singular lugs, giving you the traction you need for any sticky situation!

BREATHABLE MATERIALS

Lightweight, breathable air mesh covers the upper where the foot flexes, allowing for maximum comfort and mobility.

ZERO-DROP

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

WIDE TOE BOX

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.

    Lems terrific walking shoes.

    Fit and form well and are very comfortable.

    The stiching in one shoe was not trimmed or complete. Not defective though.

    Well made shoe

    When I bought this shoe I was looking for a minimalist shoe with a thicker stack for longer walks. The shoe is well made, the stack is good and they are comfortable for walking. The sizing is smaller than I anticipated and I had to remove the insole, but that's fine they are comfortable without it. The toe box was described as being medium wide, which is a fair description.

    The main negative is that these shoes are hot, too hot to wear comfortably in the summer.

    I will buy Lems again.
