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 8.2 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!

VEGAN MATERIALS

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

ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT

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

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.

    Great compromise between minimalism ,durability and looks

    My first minimalist shoes after learning about the importance of foot health. Nice wide toe box , light weight and flexible , zero drop. Have walked in them extensively and no significant foot pain , I was actually looking forward to some foot muscle soreness :/. Love the cork insoles. PFAS like chemicals are everywhere, so I appreciate the trend towards natural materials.

    Nice shows with one major annoyance

    I like my new primal zens. Fit and comfort are exactly what I expect from Lems. But... the sole is a lot more plastic-y than I was expecting. I have had boulder boots and nine2fives for years and expected these primals to have a similar sole. The primal's sole is not as flexible and squeaks on the polished concrete at work. EVERY step I take is accompanied by an annoying squeak. This squeak is only when I walk on polished concrete or other polished finish floors, but it really is driving me crazy and I hesitate to wear then.
