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

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.


We've re-designed the original Lems Last for a more active fit. This new sneaker features a natural-shaped toe box, paired with a slim heel fit.


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


We wanted a shoe that can perform both on the trails AND look great around town - so we took inspiration from 90's running sneakers.


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.

    Order a whole size up

    I ordered a half size bigger than my usual shoe size as is suggested, but I had to exchange them for another half size larger.

    They felt tight/narrow at first but a bit of breaking in and adjustment of the laces seemed to cure that.

    These are my first barefoot shoes and I was taken aback by how hard the soles felt but I've quickly adjusted and now I wear these shoes most days!

    Go up a full size if you like the wider toe box

    This is my third pair of Lems! I love love love them. I usually go for the wider toe box shoes and tried another fit in just a .5 size up and it wasn’t roomy enough for me so I went a whole size up in this style and it’s perfect!
