Slushies belong in cups, not the insides of your shoes. Whether your Winters are rainy, bitterly cold, or the snow didn’t get the memo that it’s officially Spring, our waterproof Chelsea boots keep the elements out and the warmth in. 

From fall through the last throes of winter, these boots will be your trusty companions. Built on the same outsole as our beloved Primal Zen, you can expect the same zero-drop, lightweight, and ultra wide fit.

This boot can be dressed up or down, worn to the office, bar, or trail.  The Espresso colorway features a fully waterproof membrane and oiled leather upper so there’s no need to worry about the forecast. Just pull them on and go! 

Because of the oiled leather and waterproof membrane you will find that this upper is stiffer than the suede version, so if you're looking for a softer feeling right out of the box, then try the Chelsea Boot Cedar instead.

We recommend ordering UP 1/2 size from your normal US size. If you plan to wear a thicker sock, consider a full size up.

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


With its waterproof membrane and full-grain oiled leather upper, this Chelsea Boot will keep your feet cozy and dry.


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.


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

    I love these boots!

    I love these boots! I am out in the garden every season of the year slipping my shoes off often to come in the house and then back out again, so easy and fast. They are the most comfortable shoes I own or have ever owned. These always my first choice for my feet.

    From the moment I put these on, my feet were extremely happy. As a former Blundstone wearer, making the switch to minimalist shoes was an easy transition with my Lems. I still needed a "heavy duty" all-purpose boot for work, hiking, and everyday wear. I will be getting more of these in the future. My hope is that they'll make this in a black leather. I'll scoop those up in a heartbeat. The boots were true to size for me (size 39/9 women's).

    Great boots!

    These boots were comfortable from the first time I wore them. Wide toe box, perfect sole. I wear a size 8 in normal shoes, purchased the Primal 2 last spring in an 8.5 (love them), and bought the Chelsea boot in a 9. I love Lems!
