Imagine that your favorite boot (the Boulder Boot, obviously) went to the salon, got a drastic cut, and came out looking as fab as ever. That’s the Chillum. Like the Boulder Boot, the Chillum is a lightweight, zero-drop shoe with the same wide toe box and flexibility you love.

Most of the colorways feature canvas in the front and wool in the back (Vanilla does not include wool). Varsity Blue, Spruce, and Vanilla incorporate a slick suede accent that lines the outsole, whereas Blackjack is lined with a vegan microfiber for those of you looking for more of an earth-friendly option. Like the Boulder Boot Mid, we incorporated a cork layer footbed that you can remove for extra wiggle room, or leave as is if you fancy a little more cushioning!

We recommend ordering UP 1/2 size from your normal US size.

This shoe is available in only one width. It is built on our WIDE Natural-Shape Last. (see image below)


By adding an ultra-thin 0.8mm cork top layer, your foot will be feeling the benefits of natural coolness and comfort, with or without socks.


These everyday shoes are some of the lightest on the market and are intended to feel like you're wearing nothing at all.


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.

    Good, with some caveats.

    These are fairly comfortable, but there are some drawbacks that mean I will not be buying another pair when these wear out. The contrast between the canvas and suede parts is not as good as I would like - the colors are too close to see that they are different materials unless you look closely. The brown patch at the back stands out like a sore thumb, and looks pretty bad. Much worse in person than the photos make it look. Finally, the insole has a cork, or at least corklike, surface, so socks stick to them like crazy. If you wear two pairs of socks or dual-layer socks it's less noticeable, but still very uncomfortable to wear for longer than a few hours. I tried these with no socks, and it was even worse. I really love my Nine2Fives, and if these had the same insole, and a little more care with the style, I'd love these as well. But with the flaws I mentioned, these just aren't that great. THAT BEING SAID, they fit perfectly, and my toes are not scrunched at all.

    Men's chillum

    I got these to wear outside in the garden next summer and I think they will be perfect for that. The men's sizes seem to fit me a bit better than the women's sizes do.
