If you’re already a fan of the Primal 2, then consider the Primal Zen its heir apparent. We took the components you love in the Primal 2 - the wide toe box and the flexible IBR outsole - and built a shoe on a new platform that wraps around your foot like a glove. For a more comfortable feel, we also added 2mm of extra sole for added protection and durability. 

We didn’t call this shoe “Zen” for nothing. In shoes this comfortable, all of your worries will just slip away. This super minimalist, kicking-around-town shoe offers a wider outsole width than the Primal 2, and a touch more cushion while still keeping the weight off, at just 8.2 oz. The Primal Zen's slick construction also includes an attached tongue that won't fall out of position, and slightly stretchy laces to give you the perfect fit across the top of your foot. The cork footbed guarantees your feet will stay cool and comfortable, with or without socks. With so much comfort designed into this shoe, you'll truly feel like you're wearing nothing at all!

VEGAN MATERIALS

Comprised of microfiber and breathable air mesh, we made sure that all materials, down to the laces and glue, are 100% vegan.

ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT

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

ZERO-DROP

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

WIDE TOE BOX

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.

    Excellent design. Shoe is extremely comfortable and lightweight, yet rugged and durable in execution.

    I have received several compliments on my choice of the Primal Zen sneaker.

    Amazing shoe. Runs a little small.

    I wore these shoes exclusively during my trip to all 5 national parks in Utah. We hiked every day and I even finished the trip with the Angels landing trail in Zion. I have been wearing Lems for at least 6 years and I currently wear these, summits, chilling, boulder, and eco. I used to get nerve pain in my big toe, but not since switching to Lems. I’m a huge fan.

    Very comfortable and fits well !

    Awesome design and fit. I needed a half size bigger and had to return the first pair due to size.
