    The Most Comfortable Dress Shoes You'll Ever Wear

    Posted by Justin Cribbs on Jun 7th 2017

    This is the second pair of Nine2Five's that I have purchased. The first pair was the black version. These shoes are the most comfortable dress casual shoes I have ever owned. I have had ingrown toenails and these shoes had plenty of room in the toebox as long as you remove the bottom liner. I wear a US Men's 13 and ordered size 48, and they fit perfectly. Also, the shoes are so light! If you're used to a lot of foam cushioning, these will take some getting used to. They have actually changed the way that I walk. I highly recommend these shoes for everyday wear. The black ones look good with a suit - the mocha may be a little too light in color to wear with a suit.

    LEMS Shoes for Foot Strength & Proper Walking Form

    Posted by Robert Mayer on Jun 4th 2017

    I have been Suffering from Plantar Fasciitis for the past 3 years and I feel I've tried it ALL!! *Except surgery; I don't want surgery if I can avoid it!!* •Orthodox •Aleve •Icing the Plantar Fascia with a Frozen Water Bottle •Massaging the Plantar Fascia with both a Spiky Massage Ball and a Steel Bar •Foam Rolling my Calves •Cushioning my Workout Room Floor with those interlocking Foam Tiles •BOSU Balance Trainer for Strengthening and Stretching •Strassburg Sock •Elastic Therapeutic Tape [Athletic Tape] FINALLY the Solution!! •Proper Toe Splaying with Correct Toes and LEMS Shoes for Foot Strength & Proper Walking Form [like most Americans I'm a 'Heel Striker'] The 1st pair of LEMS Shoes I got: 
Primal 2's. After ONLY wearing the Primal 2's (in combination with Correct Toes) for a Week, my Plantar Fasciitis had Noticeably Improved as did my Walking Form and Balance. I wore them during both my Workouts and My Job. I work in Printing [Blue Collar employee]. I walk around on Concrete All Day. Normally, I'm Limping by the end of my shift. My shoes Will Inevitably get ink and coating dripped on them. I decided the Nine2Five's would be a Better Choice for Work because I can Oil them to be Resistant to the ink and coating drippings. BONUS: The Oil Darkens up the Leather (Mocha) so they look Rustic! I liked the Oiled up Mocha Nine2Five's so much that I ordered a 2nd pair so I can keep the 1st pair Specific for Work. I also ordered a pair of the Boulder Boot Russet (They look Old School Rustic). I'm Oiling both Shoes/Boots to Protect and Preserve the Leather while Simultaneously Darkening. *I noticed most of the complaints were concerning the Mocha's Brown Leather Appearing 'Too Light' and I tend to agree But After oiling the shoes a few times they Darkened Up Nicely and gave me that 'Old School Rustic' Look I Desired. Also, I Replaced the Brown Laces with Black.* The Biggest Criticism I Receive from my Coworkers is 'They Look like Clown Shoes'. I Admit the "Typical Toe-Box" [that has been Deforming My Feet My Entire Life and is apparently the cause of my foot problems] is visually appealing BUT I'm More Than Willing to Accept such Criticism for Healthy, Pain-Free Feet. I Think they Look Great! All in All I LOVE my LEMS Shoes/Boots [in Combination with the Correct Toes]. I Couldn't Be Happier!! My Plantar Fasciitis is on the Mend and my Walking Form and Balance have both Improved. Here is to Healthy Strong Feet

    Incredibly comfortable and sharp looking. I hope Lems stays in business because I can't imagine going back to "normal" fitting shoes after tasting the sweet nectar of the gods that these shoes are.

    I love the shoes, but can't wear them to the office because our dress code forbids items with visible brand names, so the label stitched on the outside spoils the whole shoe for me.

    Just bought a second pair

    Posted by C Wayne Huling on May 25th 2017

    I have been wearing my first pair daily since October of last year. The shoes have held up very well, though the seam where the sole and leather meet had begun separating after a couple of months. I ran a small line of Gorilla Glue and have not had any issues since. Considering I wear these shoes 10-12 hours a day 5 days a week I don't see that as a big deal. I have had worse results from "higher" end shoes! This shoe is also the first shoe I have had in a while where I wasn't having to remove them because my feet hurt. Having fought tendonitis for years, this was a refreshing change.

    Exactly what I needed

    Posted by Phil on May 22nd 2017

    These shoes have just about completely eliminated some problems I have with inflammation in the balls of my feet. They look good with jeans and business casual clothes. Not quite dressy enough for full on dress clothes, especially with that tag hanging off the side. I've had a few compliments on how good they look and they are great for being on your feet all day.

    Lems 925 Mocha

    Posted by Paul Greenwood on May 19th 2017

    They're very comfortable: in fact I've previously worn similar shoes made in Europe by Jacoform, Dansko and Helvesko and would say these are the most comfortable so far. But I've only had them two weeks. Ask me in twelve months how they've survived the test of time.

    Movement In Style

    Posted by NATHAN STOTTS on May 6th 2017

    Wow! Just got these and they look incredible. I can't believe the width in the toe box. I bought a pair of Primals about a month ago and they became my favorite pair of shoes I have ever had and I'm 34. (and I've been heading to minimalist footwear for several years in Minimus, zero drop everything etc.). They look incredibly professional but can be dressed down depending on how you style it. Definitely recommend. I was lurking on these for a while before I actually bought them. Very glad I did!

    Nice roomy toebox. Good comfortable shoes. A little more boxy than I anticipated and way more padded than I anticipated. Kind of like wearing normal tennis shoes with a roomy toebox. Definitely not minimalist.

    Lems got me looking right

    Posted by Brandon on Apr 27th 2017

    I bought these for work. I am a doctor and work as a movement and soft tissue specialist. Movement is primary for me. I pair these with my Lulu ABC's and nice tucked in polo shirts and they work perfectly. I wouldn't have an issue wearing them with slacks, but generally go a little more fancy for those occasions. Lems was super helpful in helping me decide on sizing based on other shoes I have used, and helped me lock in the color. Very responsive to email and great suggestions. Shipping was on time and a breeze.

    Big and hot

    Posted by Alex on Apr 19th 2017

    First impression was good, shoe felt great. Looked rather wide and this was the case when I put it on. I have another pair of barefoot style shoe and the lems are much larger. They also make my feet very warm, to the point that around the toe box I have a damp stain from sweat which is pretty gross. Apart from that they're fantastic

    Mens Nine2Five Mocha

    Posted by Jason C on Apr 19th 2017

    The shoes are quite comfortable, however the front upper part of the shoe is so flexible that it began creasing and wrinkling right away. Also, the color is not the darker mocha color I expected based on the photographs. It was more of a caramel color.

    Comfortable and good looking

    Posted by Brendyn on Feb 21st 2017

    After the death of my Vivobarefoot Black Leather shoes I needed something dressy for Stage Managing a major international Chamber music festival. They survived 12 days of average 16000 steps a day pretty well with no break in period (they arrived just before the festival). I'm mostly really happy with them. They are stiffer than the Vivo's were and I'm hoping that they relax a bit with some more wear. Other than that all good, look good and feel comfortable.

    Great Shoe

    Great Shoe

    Posted by Shawn on Jan 31st 2017

    I have looked for and tried minimalist and zero drop shoes for many years. I have tried quite a few and have been looking for a good shoe that I could wear to work and also for nice casual attire. Most other shoes have been either too casual looking or too clownish looking. These shoes look great and feel great. Many minimalist shoes either have too little padding/sole or some have too much even I have found. These strike the right balance for me. Now I need to order another pair in another color. Thanks. Great shoe.

    Most Comfortable Work Shoes I've Owned

    Posted by Jarom Prestwich on Jan 18th 2017

    I bought these after much research, and they have been fantastic. The leather is soft, the shoes are light, and they fit my foot very well. I've suffered from plantar fasciitis for several years since a motorcycle accident, and when I started wearing these, I stopped using my orthotics. It feels great (my calves did hurt for a week or so, but they are so much better now, and much less tight). I just hope the sole holds up for a while, as it seems pretty soft.

    Good, could be great

    Posted by Alex on Jan 8th 2017

    I bought these shoes because I was looking for a zero drop shoe with a large toe box that I could wear to work, and these definitely fit the bill. To that end they work well and, outside a few things I'll mention next, are comfortable. I especially like the nubs on the insert, it feels nice on the bottom of the foot. Two things, however, really hold this shoe back. First is the stitch across the top of the shoe. This forces the shoe to crease in a specific position as you walk, and for my foot that is the wrong position. The corners of the fold end up pressing slightly into my foot. The worst part is definitely the tongue of the shoe. I find it is way too wide, which causes it to wrap around my foot more than normal, and too thick, where I get pressure of some of my foot bones I've never had in a shoe before. This wouldn't be a big deal if the tongue were more independent of the shoe like all my others, but it is actually stitched to the shoe wall shortly after it goes inside the shoe, meaning you can't really slide the tongue left or right to where it is comfortable, you are stuck with it dead center. I think with a few design changes I would love this shoe, but as of now I will only wear it to work in the colder months because I wouldn't find it comfortable to take walk breaks in the warmer months.

    One of a kind. A gem.

    Posted by Lloyd on Dec 9th 2016

    I have never owned dress shoes (or any shoes like these). There was a period of adjustment for my feet, but it was well worth it. The Nine2fives are quite possibly the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned. The flexible outsole grips your foot as you walk. Your toes can splay comfortably, the minimum outsole and zero-drop provide a blissful level of comfort once your feet are acclimated to this type of shoe. I find that they also help with my patellar and quadriceps tendonosis issues and make walking more realistic for me. As they are a dress shoe, I can wear them in casual and more formal situations. I have ordered a pair in black. Perhaps lems would consider offering a slightly darker shade of brown to go along with suits. I hope Lems never stops making these!

    Nine2five Mocha First Impressions

    Posted by Stephen Fisher on Dec 8th 2016

    I've been searching out a nice looking, zero drop, light weight shoe that I can wear everyday for work. Some are quite expensive and others look too much like slippers. The Lem's Nine2five seemed to fit in the right style for the right price niche. I received my Nine2fives on a Tuesday while I was at work and I had my wife open the package. The first thing my kids commented on was how light they were. When I got home and picked them up, I had to agree. I don't even think my zero drop running shoes are this light. I wore them around the house for the evening, but unfortunately couldn't wear them for work on Wednesday (had to wear my clunky shoes with the suit that day). So, today was my first opportunity to wear them all day and I can say, I'm pretty excited. They are light, have plenty of room for my toes to move around, the sole is very flexible, there is no slip on the heal, the tongue has just enough padding and they look great. Even the shoelaces rock. They are round and have a bit of waxiness to them so there was no slippage of the knot. If they hold up over the next year, Lem's will definitely be my go to shoe. I only have two minor issues. I wish the mocha color was slightly darker and I wish they were made in the USA. Other than that, I have no complaints. Lem's customer service has been awesome with answering questions and taking care of me. Bottom line: Give them a go.

    Mens Nine2Five Mocha

    Posted by DeeJay on Dec 8th 2016

    Pros: These shoes are really comfortable. They are well designed and constructed. I can imagine them taking a beating and lasting a very long time. Cons: I am extremely disappointed with the color. They are much, much lighter than they appear in the photos and while my wife likes the color, I don't like it at all. I'd rather them be a deeper, darker brown. They are a little tight in the toe box as well but I have really wide feet and with the leather uppers, I'm sure it'll stretch a little and I'll be fine. There is enough wiggle room for your toes. They are not as minimalist as I expected which is both good and bad. The good is that they have a more solid construction which makes them more durable. They are flexible and allow your foot to move around. The soles do not give as much feeling of the ground as I am used to. If you want a nearly barefoot experience, this is not the shoe but it will give you a minimalist feel. It's like trying to feel the ground with thick gloves. I can feel but the perception is diminished. Though, based on the comfort, I can be ok with that. Overall, this is a great shoe, just be aware that the color is not what you see in the pictures.

    Posted by David on Nov 25th 2016

    I wearing these to work everyday about 18 months ago. I used to wear wing tip style shoes, expensive ones, because it seemed like protocol, but they hurt my feet and even affected my back. I decided to break the mold and try these Lems Nine2Five shoes. It took a while to get used to the different look, but I've made them my own and it's been so worth it. These changed my life. Imagine walking around the office in your socks, that's what these are like. It feels natural. My feet no longer hurt and neither does my back. I can't imagine going back to the heeled style shoes. Give these a try if you dare to be good to yourself.

    I have worn these 9 to 5's for 7 months and found them comfortable, stylish, and durable. A 2 mm split occurred between the sole and the leather along the seam of the little toe area. I sent a photo to Lem's and they shipped me A NEW PAIR OF SHOES! WOW! I am impressed with the Company and the staff. Thank you! Enjoying my second pair even more than the first pair.

    I have been wearing the Nine2fives about a month now and have them broken in fairly well. They are very comfortable, and have eased my tendonitis. They are a great office environment shoe, and though they are light and dainty feeling, it is holding up a lot better that I thought it would at first glance. Thank you for a very nice shoe!

    Good, but could be better

    Posted by Marlon Van Berkum on Oct 23rd 2016

    The shoes are definitively an improvement compared to "normal shoes". However, I don't feel the nine2fives are as great as they could have been. They look quite old, right from the bat. I suggest getting new laces. They feel nice though, although again not as great as could have been. I expected them to be more comfortable.

    I love these shoes. They are by FAR the comfiest shoes I've owned as well as the first pair that I feel like were properly designed to match and support the structure of the foot. I managed to get the right size for my feet on my first try as I went with the same size I wear in birkenstocks. These nine2fives fit me like a glove. I've worn them almost exclusively since I received them. I can already tell that it's helped improve my constant low back pain. And I fully plan to buy the boulder boot next. Can't wait! Thank you, Lem! Keep it up!

    Posted by Noah on Oct 10th 2016

    I had a pair of primal 2, and then my job changed so that I needed something fancier than sneakers. These fit the bill perfectly. They look great with cotton slacks and dress shirts. The leather even takes a shine. Like leather gloves for my feet. Best of all, my toes aren't squished any more and there is no fat heel to get in the way of walking properly. Wish they were made in US. Initial quality seems very good.

    Posted by Clifford Flanders on Oct 4th 2016

    I bless the day my friends told me about your shoes. I bought a black pair and was so taken with their comfort that I bought a second, then a third pair. My husband and I recently took a trip to Spain and walked all over Barcelona and Madrid. I know that in my old shoes, my feet would be screaming in pain by the end of the day. With Lem's, I could have gone on for hours more! What a find.

    Perfect Combination of Features

    Posted by Gregory Kintz on Oct 2nd 2016

    These are the perfect combination of light weight, zero drop, thin soles (not quite as thin as I might like, but durable), and professional looking shoes. I work at a standup desk, and at stand up workstations, so I'm on my feet for long periods and these are very comfortable. I had a pair of work casual "barefoot" shoes from another company and the sole wore out in less than a year. The soles on the Nine2fives are not as thin as "barefoot" shoes, but I am confident that I'll have these for a few years.

    Extremely comfortable and look great. I fit in same size as all of my other shoes. I love the 0 drop and although I actually love the thickness of the sole (I thought I wanted to feel the ground even more). That being said I do feel like I'm slapping my forefoot on the ground after moving from heel to toe in a normal walk. Not sure how the design could change to smooth the heel to toe transition and it may be specific to this model. Not enough to prevent me from buying this model again however would appreciate the tweak on the next model. Would also love to hear feedback on this review from Lems. Was considering ordering some boots but curious is they feel the same way (heel to toe/toe slap) before I do

    Posted by Ek on Sep 9th 2016

    Overall these are good. I find that they fit better without the insole. The zero drop is definitely nice...it feels much more natural and comfortable to walk in these shoes compared to shoes with a raised heel. I was expecting the color to be more brown. In most of the pics of the mocha color way, the shoes appear darker than what they actually are. I would say that the pic of the shoes outside up against the brick wall most closely resembles the actual color of the shoes. The other pics give the impression that the color is more brown than it actually is. Despite this, I will still be keeping the shoes!

    Perfect. I've had Lems now for about six weeks and I can now run again without pain. I get compliments on these shoes all the time. They're durable and comfortable. I strongly recommend using the Lems measurement guide when ordering. I usually wore a size 7 but ordered an 8 after using their chart. My feet are grateful.
