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.

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.

    Love, but a tad short

    I’m truly a 6 3/4. Not quite a 6.5 and not quite a 7. It all depends on the brand. I originally purchased a 6.5 and they were way too small so I exchanged for a 7. The exchange process was SUPER easy. The 7s, while much better, are still juuuuuuuust a tad bit short. Totally ok for my everyday wear like working from home, working part time at church, school dropoff/pickup, errands. All the things. I just can’t believe I went through my whole life thinking that foot pain was normal. Apparently it is NOT normal. I was also skeptical for a while because of the aesthetic of a “wide toe box” shoe but honestly it’s just me. You can only tell from a Birds Eye view but honestly no one else notices or cares. It was all in my head on what I “thought” a sneaker was supposed to look like. I am a hard to please customer……and I am pleased. Just know that these shoes run a tab short and size accordingly.

    My fav

    These are my fav shoe of all time. Perfect for someone like me who has Morton’s neuroma and have to wear a single toe spacer everyday!
