For customers that find the Trailhead and Mesa too narrow, the Primal Pursuit may be just what you need, and probably the highest anticipated style to hit the Lems lineup to date! The Primal Pursuit features the same fit and feel as the Primal 2, but with a bit more oomph, like the Trailhead/Mesa.

The new Trail Traction Outsole provides more grip on the trail, with a slightly higher stack height, providing a bit more cushion for more sensitive feet, yet they won’t weigh you down. 

Think of the Primal Pursuit as a hybrid of the Primal 2 and the Trailhead/Mesa. We incorporated all of the features you have grown to love about these shoe models into one new and improved style!

The Primal Pursuit combines the fit and feel of the Primal 2 with its zero-drop and wide toe box, with the functionality and durability of the Trailhead/Mesa for more rugged Pursuits - see what we did there? ;)

The lightweight materials include an air mesh upper that allows for maximum air flow to wick away moisture and keep you presentable for a post-run brewski. The Primal Pursuit features the same zero-drop heel and wide toe box as the Primal 2 that allows the toes to behave like they are meant to - free and splayed.

You’ll never have to load your weekend getaway pack with multiple pairs of shoes for all of your adventures and social activities, the Primal Pursuit has got you covered for all of it!

We recommend ordering your normal US size.

Unsure of your size? We recommend ordering 2+ pairs at a time, as we offer a flat shipping fee of $5.95 & free exchange options for US customers.

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


Our newly designed outsole has recessed grooves and singular lugs, giving you the traction you need for any sticky situation!


Lightweight, breathable air mesh covers the upper where the foot flexes, allowing for maximum comfort and mobility.


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.

    Love Lems

    Bought a 1/2 size larger, like some folks said. Was disappointed at first bc I thought they may be too big. But I wear some pretty thick socks. Once I put those on and adjusted the laces!- the fit was perfect....

    IF you don't wear socks (I use No Socks in my other summer Lems) stay to your true size.

    Favorite shoes - bought two identical pairs

    As someone who is an obsessive weirdo about how my shoes feel/fit, these are my favorite shoes right now. I'm scared they're going to discontinue them since all the colors are discontinued right now, so I bought two pairs in Canyon. They're just a really solid, relatively minimalist (but definitely not fully "barefoot) sneaker / trail shoe. They're the best one-bag travel shoe for me for three seasons out of the year because they look decent enough to wear around casually, but I can also walk, hike, work out, and run a few miles in them happily. I would love them even more if they had just *slightly* more room for splay for the big toe, but they're flexible enough that it's fine.
