In need of a classic shoe that can be dressed up or down? The Kourt is your solemate. Designed using the same outsole as the Chillum, the Kourt is made with a full grain leather upper with a subtle suede detail against the heel to add a hint of contrast to the shoe. The perforated tongue and perforations in the back coupled with the moisture-wicking polyester lining make way for airflow. 

Our proprietary ultra-thin cork insole provides a natural cooling sensation and can be worn with or without socks, or without the insole entirely if you prefer a more minimal feel. These shoes feature a wide toe box and zero drop for maximum flexibility and packability, making the Kourt an obvious choice for travel or weekend getaways. Available in Whiteout or Black Top, these shoes will go with any outfit because they are classy that way.

Black Top

We recommend ordering your normal US size.

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


We’ve utilized a full-grain leather upper to enhance the overall look and feel of the shoe. Date night? Business casual event? The Kourt has you covered.


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.


Places the forefoot and heel flat to the ground correcting posture, aligning your spine, and encouraging mid-foot strike.


Our proprietary IBR outsole is what makes Lems incredibly lightweight and flexible - giving your foot the sense of weightlessness.

    Look great, feel great.

    I dig the Kourt. It's a comfortable, good looking shoe. I love the black top / white sole look, and the clean lines of this design in particular. (I did go up a 1/2 size from my normal shoe size.)

    CONS: They're a tad 'chunkier' than I'd like and a little stiff - I'd prefer a lower profile and perhaps a thinner leather. The laces do seem cheap, and they don't necessarily slide on and off the way my primal 2s do

    PROS: I think they'll break in nicely and be fairly durable - they seem to be well constructed. They fit the bill for what I was looking for in terms of a minimalist leather sneaker that I can dress up or at least not feel embarrassed about - they do look nice for a duck foot shoe (I kid - if you're looking at Lems or any minimalist shoe, this is a good thing)

    Just excellent

    These have become my go to shoes. I am a big guy and I spend a lot of time on my feet due to work travel. LEM's makes the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
