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!

White Sand

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)


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


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.

    I love my Lems!

    I have 3 pairs of Lems - the Women’s Chelsea boot, the Drifter, and the Primal Zen. They are great for my wide, high volume feet, and perfect as a transitional barefoot shoe. Due to my personal anatomy (born with club foot, feet/ankles are severely supinated), I will likely never make it to truly ‘barefoot’ shoes, but Lems allows me the best of both worlds - zero drop, flexible, foot-shaped, cute and a touch more cushion - while I continue to strengthen my feet and gain mobility. 10/10 recommend. My only regret is I ordered them a few weeks before this great sale! What was I thinking!? lol

    Very comfy. Nice and wide. The top vent works, I sometimes feel the breeze through it.

    Sometimes rocks get caught in the tread. Once a day maybe. The outside area where I work is gravel.

    I like that the sole comes up the sides a bit. Will help when walking on wet ground.

    No long term rating, got them 5 days ago. So far very happy with them.

    The very best

    My wife and I both have these and, they are the very best fitting shoe we have ever had. I wear a wide 15 and these fit my foot perfectly! Solid 10/10
