We don’t always wear shoes, but when we do, we choose the OG of the Lems line, the Primal 2 – an ultra-minimalist, everyday shoe that lets you get the most out of every day. Its wide toe box, natural shape, and inspired minimalist running shoe design are ideal for any daily deed that your calendar calls for. Did we mention the zero-drop outsole will make you more grounded than a spring chicken with aspirations of flight? Or the lightweight 6.9oz frame that gives you the impression that your feet are on cloud 9? Oh, and how about the super soft, vegan friendly materials that allow the foot to flex like a master of yin yoga? These features come together to comprise the Primal 2. All this while promoting healthy foot development and aiding in alleviating certain foot ailments such as bunions and hammertoes. A package deal like the Primal 2 is rarer than a unicorn colony dwelling under any double rainbow! So, whether standing at work, walking the dog, or running everyday errands, the Primal 2 is certainly the 'go to shoe' for you. What are you waiting for? Carpe diem and seize yourself a pair of the insanely comfortable Primal 2.

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.

    Comfy but not for long walks on concrete

    I recently brought these on vacation and they were so comfortable! No breaking in needed, they were comfy right out of the box. I loved how lightweight they were and the mesh made them super breathable. The wide toe box was great as well. While these were super comfortable for the first few days, I did eventually start to feel the impact of the lack of cushioning after a few days of lots of walking on concrete and pavement. I'll definitely look into maybe the Primal Zen or Mesa for my next shoe as those have more cushioning. Overall I think these are a great shoe and are comfortable for casual wear but I at least definitely need more cushioning if I'm going to be walking a lot on pavement.

    My Toes are Happy

    I appreciate so much how wide the toe box is on these shoes. They are comfortable and breathe well. Light flexible and work well as casual shoes.

    The most comfortable shoe, right out of the box!

    I love everything about these shoes. They are the perfect width in the toe, accommodate my high arch, and fit perfectly in the heel. These are the shoes I’ve been looking for
