The Waterproof Boulder Boot has long been our most requested shoe, and we’re confident that they’ll be worth the wait. Speaking of weight, this boot still maintains the lightweight frame you’ve come to know and love from Lems — even though we’ve added a unique waterproof membrane, these puppies will still hit the scale at a featherlight 12.9oz. 

We also took some time to rethink the overall construction of our latest release, and reinforced everything; from a thicker gauge thread to an overall stronger outer construction, this is our toughest pair yet. And yes, before you ask, they’re zero-drop. Ready to roll through a river, plow through an ice pack, or anything else on your agenda? Good, because so are our Waterproof Boulder Boots, which keep your feet shockingly clear from clammy conditions due to a breathable waterproof membrane that stops water from penetrating into the boot, while still allowing the heat from your feet to escape. This kind-of-a-big-deal boot also utilizes a pre-treated leather upper, that can be reapplied with waterproofing wax/spray to help extend its water repellency.

The Waterproof Boulder Boot is the one shoe that does it all without ever missing a step. You can easily pack it, but you’ll also feel good wearing it everywhere, everyday. And just so you know — this boot was designed with an incredible amount of detail and care, and we can’t wait to see where you go in it.

We recommend ordering UP 1/2 size from your normal US size. If you plan to wear a thicker sock, consider a full size up.

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


Rain or sun, we’re ready. Not only can you skip along streams and keep your toes dry, you can up the ante on where your travel takes you this winter, thanks to your new favorite pair, complete with a gusseted tongue.  


We’ve utilized a 100% full-grain leather with an oiled finish, that is pre-treated to be water repellent. To increase the water-repellency and extend it over the life of the shoe, we suggest using a waterproofing wax such as Otter Wax and reapplying 2-3 times per year.


Our injection blown rubber outsole is what makes Lems incredibly lightweight and flexible. Deemed as the perfect travel companion, this boot can pack down to the size of your favorite puff jacket. 


Places the forefoot and heel flat to the ground correcting posture, aligning your spine, and encouraging mid-foot strike.

    Comfy but terrible laces

    Great boot, but be prepared to buy your own laces. The ones they provide are garbage. Always gets undone even if I squeeze extremely hard. It’s incredibly frustrating. Why give hard round laces that are basically like ropes

    Finally got them

    I have been looking at these boots for 3 years, and I finally decided to treat myself. Having 3 kids I am always buying things for them so it feels frivolous spending on myself too. Anyway, I love them more than any shoes I have ever had. The size I chose based off of the size chart is a perfect fit. They are incredibly supportive, and comfortable, yet flexible, and soft. They look great with my wardrobe, with jeans and a sweater, and even skirts and or a dress. I mink oiled the back section of the heel, going up to the pull on tab and it gives a two tone look as the leather looks much different oiled. No regrets with this purchase.

    A little stiff

    These boots are a lot stiffer than the canvas boulder boots I have had for years. But that is to be expected if you want the waterproof durability. They fit well and are comfortable. Just not as lightweight and flexible as the others. Maybe over time they will soften up. For now I still have a tendency to grab my original boulders when I head out for a hike unless it's really damp out...
