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!

We recommend ordering your normal US size.

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


Utilizing a full suede upper with perforations for breathability, this pair provides supreme comfort all day long.


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


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 shoes

    I havecMortons Toe and forefoot arthritis. Switched from conventional footwear to Primal 2s about five years ago. Wanted something a bit warmer this winter and tried these. Also tried the Primal Pursuit for the thicker sole and slight lug as I am walking several miles regularly now My only complaint is that for some reason these are much harder to put on than either of the others. I have to loosen the laces substantially. Once on and re-laced, they are very comfortable. I think using stretch shoelaces as in the Pursuit might be an improvement.

    Love the shoes, healed my feet!

    Love this brand. Got my first pair after reviewing several zero drop options when I was having major foot issues. Ever since getting that first pair, my feet have healed and I never have plantar fasciitis anymore. Opted for a second pair and love them just as much but they run small and I wish I could great them bigger.

    My only shoes

    I began wearing Lems several years ago after experiencing foot pain. Now, that are all I wear. I have several different styles and colors. This is the first pair in suede. I decided to try these after a summer of beach walking. My hope is that sand will find it more difficult to get through. I am a big walker sometimes doing 50 miles per week. I love these shoes for walking and casual wear. I get a lot of compliments on these shoes.
