We recommend ordering your normal US size. If you have wider feet, we do not suggest this shoe.

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 MEDIUM Natural-Shape Last. (see image below)


Engineered with a new, low profile, rubber tread that combines the best of both worlds: ample traction on trails, AND excellent durability on pavement.


The upper is made of durable materials that stand up to the abuses of trails, and also daily wear and tear.


With 4mm of drop, compared to the traditional 12mm of drop, the Trailhead naturally decreases heel-striking for a more natural gait and healthier posture.


When your foot is on too soft of cushion, you end up with pain and discomfort. We've formulated a firm EVA midsole that'll keep your feet happy all day long.

    Runs very small

    Nice shoe. I've had several Lem's. I can barely get my foot into this one. Too narrow also.

    It's a beautiful shoe. I'm sad.

    Go up 1/2 size

    Almost the perfect shoe! I wear a 9.5M in the W's Chelsea boots and have a normal width foot except for extra narrow heels. I have a Morton's Toe (longer 2nd toe than big toe) and in these shoes, that toe is very cramped. In regular socks, my big toe rubs just enough against the shoe to make me worry a little, but my 2nd toe is totally cramped. Going up another 1/2 size.
