If you’re already a fan of the Primal 2, then consider the Primal Zen its heir apparent. We took the components you love in the Primal 2 - the wide toe box and the flexible IBR outsole - and built a shoe on a new platform that wraps around your foot like a glove. For a more comfortable feel, we also added 2mm of extra sole for added protection and durability. 

We didn’t call this shoe “Zen” for nothing. In shoes this comfortable, all of your worries will just slip away. This super minimalist, kicking-around-town shoe offers a wider outsole width than the Primal 2, and a touch more cushion while still keeping the weight off, at just 6.8 oz. The Primal Zen's slick construction also includes an attached tongue that won't fall out of position, and slightly stretchy laces to give you the perfect fit across the top of your foot. The cork footbed guarantees your feet will stay cool and comfortable, with or without socks. With so much comfort designed into this shoe, you'll truly feel like you're wearing nothing at all!

We recommend ordering your normal US size.

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)


Comprised of microfiber and breathable air mesh, we made sure that all materials, down to the laces and glue, are 100% vegan.


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


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.

    I absolutely love these shoes. My son recommended, now I wear them all the time! My knees and feet are much happier. I actually feel better all around when wearing them. I'll definitely buy another pair.

    Love my Lems. Fit as expected and so comfortable. Bonus is that I’ve received many compliments every time I wear them.

    Yet another great pair of sneaks!

    I am a devoted Primal 2 wearer. Tried the Zen, did go up a half size on my latest pair. The Zen have a little more structure and that 1/2 size up made a big difference. They still fit like socks😁. I got zen instead of 2 because I wanted a white pair.
