Finding boots that are ultra-minimalist, featuring a wide toebox, lightweight form, and zero-drop design is more difficult than locating the infamous Sasquatch…but why?  Where is the minimalist boot that is the natural shape of the human foot; a boot that brings your feet closer to the earth with a barefoot design; a boot so lightweight that it cuts down on ounces more than this week's fad diet; and a boot that has a wide toebox with more open space than the state of Kansas? Well, guess what, Dorothy? Welcome home!

We here at Lems Shoes believe that you don't need to be some environmentalist who survives on organic granola and berries to know that going natural can have its benefits, which is why we bring you the Boulder Boot - a barefoot boot that has all of the natural features you’ve been searching for all while promoting healthy foot development, better balance, increased mobility in the feet, legs, and back AND helps to alleviate certain foot ailments such as bunions and hammer toes. If you're ready for a 9.9oz boot (size 43) that can pack down into the smallest of daypacks or carry you on the farthest of Sasquatch searches, then it’s time you rock the Boulder.

    Boulder boot

    Posted by Justin on Jun 18th 2017

    Awesome boot. I wear mine working in my butcher shop and everyday wear. They are holding up well to the riggers of my work. I love the look as well. Help me keep my feet natural and comfortable, as I spend up to 12 hours on my feet a day.

    Lems Boulder boots

    Posted by Palmet on Jun 15th 2017

    These boots are fantastic. The fitting was spot on and so far a month in I have gone on camping and many rigorous hikes with them and they've held up very well. I'm very happy and impressed with the product.

    Great Boot!

    I do just about everything in these as long as water is not involved. Very comfortable, light weight, look good. Great job, Lems!

    Wonderful Travel Boot

    Posted by Steve on May 17th 2017

    I traveled through the cities and countrysides of france and switzerland with absolutely no problems! My feet felt springy and light after about 40+ miles of hiking and walking! I highly recommend for any trip in any kind of terrain!

    Fit, comfort, recommendations

    Posted by Aaron on Apr 14th 2017

    This is my first pair of boots ever. Right off the bat they were extremely comfortable and soft. It took a while to get used to having any material above my ankles but once I did I was able to walk normally again. My feet are in between sizeds and I had to keep exchanging the boots. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. There is plenty of room in the toe box and it is shaped appropriately for a foot. I really do love this shoe. I do have two and a half beefs with not just the boots but Lems shoes in general. The first is the thickness of the sole. For a minimal shoe it is quite thick. People have said that it has good ground feel but I must disagree. It is bulky, and too soft and I feel like I am gripping inside the shoe. The second is the upturned shape at the end of the toe box. Lems claims that there is no toe spring but there absolutely is. It is clear looking at a side view of the shoes and when I put my feet in the boots I can feel it. The half complaint is with the stitching inside the boot under the insole. I took the insole out because of the thickness issue and now I can feel some of the stitching. I would really like to see the company move more minimal the in the first two areas I addressed. Otherwise, I really love the boots and the low key, environmentally friendly attitude of the company. Good work guys.

    These boots are simply amazing. I've had mine for a few months now and the look and feel great. Took no time to break in. The boot size is just right, not tight at all, with a lot of wiggle room for the toes. It was sweet that they came with two sets of laces...I went witht the gold one to the dissent of my teenage daughter. The boots themselves are eye catching...constantly get complements on them. Also made Lemers out of my coworkers because of them. So between these boots and the Priman 2's, I'm set with Lems, and so should you.

    Men's Boulder Boot Leather

    Posted by Ryan Grant (SoleFit) on Mar 9th 2017

    As a pedorthist at a clinic in Ottawa, Canada, we are always looking for functional footwear to recommend that doesn't look like granny/grampa shoes! This is my second pair of Boulder boots and am now super spoiled by the roomy toe box. Highly recommend and we send a lot of our patients to the Lems website!!!

    This is a really fantastic boot. I seemed to have one ordering/shipping snafoo after another but finally received them. They have a very strong rubber smell out of the box but this dissipates over time. It takes a while to get used to the gumby head shape seen from above but these boots feel so great and look good too. They offer just the right amount of ground feel for me, and fit my unconventional foot really well. One of my favorite things about then is that I can keep them loosely strung and just pull them on my feet and walk right out the door when I don't feel like lacing and tying. Lems has hit a home run with these.

    I hate shoes...love Lems

    Posted by GW on Mar 1st 2017

    I was looking for a boot that was minimal in fit and weight, but good in fashion and protection. The Lem Boulder boot does all that and more. Highly recommended.

    As good as advertised

    Posted by Jim on Feb 6th 2017

    I bought a pair of the all-leather Boulder Boots the day that they came out and have been very happy with the purchase. Comfortable, durable, minimal, and -- in terms of looks -- conventional. I tend to wear one pair of boots with everything I own and could not pull the trigger on any of the two-tone styles. The all-leather Russet looks great and is versatile. Although these do not provide waterproofing out of the box, there are many leather waterproofing products to choose from. The benefit of the all-leather style is that I can coat the entire boot in Nikwax and not worry about water until it's time to re-apply. I asked Lems and they also recommended Nikwax. The sizing is consistent with the Nine2Fives and (of course) the other pairs of Boulder Boots. I know it can be a challenge for smaller shoe companies to establish that consistency, so thank you Lems.

    Finally broke in…

    Took longer than expected (two weeks), but the boots finally feel comfortable. Wasn't happy at first, but now I'm very happy.

    Something you could wear on a date.

    Posted by Espen on Jan 25th 2017

    I've been missing an all leather boot and i finally have one that looks just as good as any all leather conventional footwear you would wear on dinner dates or job interviews. And with the brown laces these come with, you can use them for just that. Very stylish and soft quality leather. Other than that, the shape and outer sole is exactly the same as the rest of the boulder boots, only in soft leather. Very satisfied, thank you Lems :)

    Mens Boulder Boot Leather Russet

    Posted by Ron on Jan 7th 2017

    Aloha. Please let me begin with a big MAHALO (thank you) for the expedited shipping of 3 days for an economy price. What wonderful customer service. Completely unexpected. Before we begin, I am older than the speed limit, and just learned about Minimalist footwear and zero-drop. My feet have been hurting for the past 6 months. Starting with the quality control. These Boulder Boots are very nice looking, but have a couple areas in question. The flannel liner stitching at the top of the laces and tongue, where it transitions from folded edge to a raw edge are not completely caught in the stitching. I will keep watch on these 2 areas. I did have a piece of thin leather coming out between the toe stitching, easily resolved with scissors. The over-all quality control is good, but not excellent. HOWEVER, minus this concern, these have to be the best boots I have ever put on my feet! This is not a paid review! I jumped all-in. Injinji socks, clear toes, and Lems Shoes. WOW! My wife listened to my rolling comments as I was putting these babies on my feet. These puppies fit like a glove, a second skin. What a wonderful sensation. By the time I had them both on, my wife stated she was getting a pair. I wore them to a friend's house for 3 hours, walking around on grass, dirt and lava. There is absolutely no break in period needed. The boots performed flawlessly showing only minor scuffs from the lava, which is to be expected. The extra leather piece sewn on the top of the tongue is a nice touch, keeping you from feeling the knotted laces. While wearing the Boulder Boots, I felt almost like I was leaning back in my stride. At the conclusion of the first wear, I felt more grounded, more balanced on my feet. I am extremely happy with my Lems Shoes, Boulder Boots. Would I purchase another pair? Absolutely. Would I recommended them to family and friends? Without hesitation. I would even recommend them to someone I might not like as well. The website videos are fun, the invoice is fun, and the shoes convey the same fun while wearing. Five (5) stars for the fantastic boots, numeric score of 4.9 for some minor quality control issues. I highly recommend these for anyone looking to improve their feet and walking posture. My feet feel GREAT! Mahalo nui loa (thank you very much). Lems for life!
