Men's Minimalist Hiking Boot

This natural foot-shaped boot has become the go-to for travelers looking to save space & weight while on the go. Comprised of 1200-denier nylon and nu-buck leather, this boot is an ideal water-resistant combo. Its IBR outsole grants flexibility so they can pack down to the size of your favorite puff jacket.


Finding boots that are ultra-minimalist, featuring a wide toebox, lightweight form, and zero-drop design is more difficult than locating the infamous Sasquatch…but why?  Where is the minimalist boot that is the natural shape of the human foot; a boot that brings your feet closer to the earth with a barefoot design; a boot so lightweight that it cuts down on ounces more than this week's fad diet; and a boot that has a wide toebox with more open space than the state of Kansas? Well, guess what, Dorothy? Welcome home!

We here at Lems Shoes believe that you don't need to be some environmentalist who survives on organic granola and berries to know that going natural can have its benefits, which is why we bring you the Boulder Boot - a barefoot boot that has all of the natural features you’ve been searching for all while promoting healthy foot development, better balance, increased mobility in the feet, legs, and back AND helps to alleviate certain foot ailments such as bunions and hammer toes. If you're ready for a 9.9oz boot (size 43) that can pack down into the smallest of daypacks or carry you on the farthest of Sasquatch searches, then it’s time you rock the Boulder.

Are the Boulder Boots Waterproof?

-They are not. You can increase water resistance by applying a third party waterproofing wax but this will not provide 100% water resistance. Good news, though - we’re coming out with a fully waterproof boot in the near future!

What is the lining made from?

-100% cotton.

Are the Boulder Boots non-slip?

-They are not. However, we do plan to launch a non-slip outsole in the future!

Can I use my Boulder Boots for hiking?

-You sure can, although, the boot was designed and intended for casual use. While many of our customers use the Boulder Boots on the trail, we do not recommend them for extreme, technical hiking.

Do you have a Vegan friendly boot?

-Sure do! Our full-nylon Boulder Boot Black is 100% vegan. (LINK)


Hello everyone at Lems. First off I want to thank you for creating such an awesome boot.

I am on my second pair of the Boulder boot because my feet grew naturally longer and wider after wearing my first pair.  

Extremely lightweight, minimal, stylish and functional.  

The boulder boots have been my daily wear at work and play. I hike in them, backpack, cycle. They are the only shoe I wear when I am not wearing sandals.

The leather and nylon design is great. It allows the foot to breathe and also offers protection on the much needed areas.

I have been wearing a pair of boulder boots for a week. They are great. Please keep making shoes. I'll be ordering a pair of Nine2Fives soon. My wife says I have weird feet, and that's why shoes (even wide sizes) generally don't fit me well. I told her to shut up. She told me to shut up. I said that Lems fit me great, and that is proof that my feet aren't that weird. She walked away before I finished that sentence, but she knows that I am right. Thanks for making weird (normal) shoes.

I absolutely love my new Boulder Boots. I have had them for four days now and have gone hiking, hammocking, and walking downtown and I cannot take these shoes off! They are the perfect shoe for me and I just wanted to say thank you and let you all know what a terrific shoe and company you have built. My dog Apollo approves also.
