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 My Lems

    Not sure I've ever thought of myself as a 'shoe guy' before but... after noticing a friend's cool footwear, a conversation ensued. Already in search of some updated footwear, I liked what they had to say about their experience with Lems. Figuring it was a gamble ordering shoes online no matter what I did, I'm here to say I'm very happy with my Lems purchase. They look good, fit well, and are so darn comfortable I often forget they're on my feet. The sizing suggesting for +1/2 size was dead on for me.

    Little stiff and smaller than thought

    I had to size up from my other Lems shoes. So while this may run big, it runs small compared to say the 9to5s. Otherwise, they're solid and comfortable walking shoes. My intent was to have a one bag shoe that can go from the office to the bar to a walk around town. These fit the bill. While technically heavier shoes should be worn on the airplane, the ability to fold these up was a nice perk. That said they don't "roll up" as easily on the marketing videos. Will try to roll them up more to break them in so that they fit more nicely. While they are comfortable for walks and the boardroom, still wouldn't enjoy wearing them on the airplane (would look nice though). They are not as wide as I'd hoped, but that might be a me thing.

    Great boot. Open toe box, zero drop. Very comfortable and easy to put on and take off.
