Gear Review Opportunity: Lems Shoes

lemsLogoHappy Monday everyone!

Reminder: Gear Review Opportunities are open to anyone who has their Outdoor Blog on the OBN Directory. You just leave a comment below letting us know that you are interested in receiving and reviewing the gear and if you are picked by the RNG, you’ll get the gear in the mail, test it out and then write a review on your blog. 

Today we are excited to give 4 Outdoor Bloggers the opportunity to receive, test out, review and keep a pair of fantastic Lems Shoes. 

Lems Shoes are different than what we’ve all been accustomed to wearing, especially in outdoor footwear.

They have designed their shoes to fit to the natural shape of the human foot.  Unlike other shoes with pointed toes, the toe area of Lems Shoes is designed to allows the toes ultimate freedom to wiggle and spread.

More From their Website:

Lems Shoes are made with less.  We spend our time getting the important things right and eliminate the rest; no added material, no gimmicks, and no fluff.  From the beginning, we had a need for a flat, flexible & featherlite shoe that fit the natural shape of the foot.

Details About This Gear Review Opportunity

Lems Shoes is offering 4 pairs of shoes up to be used and reviewed by Outdoor Bloggers. (2 pairs of mens, 2 pairs of ladies)

Up First: Boulder Boots (arguably the lightest boot in the world)- 1 Mens1 Ladies

Lems Shoes, Lems Boulder BootBoulder Boot Details

  • Last:  LemsLast™ foot-shaped
  • Upper:  40% Water-resistant nylon + 60% full-grain leather
  • Waterproof:  No
  • Sole:  9.0mm LemsRubber™ injection rubber
  • Insole:  Optional removable 3.0mm MoistureWick foam
  • Lining:  100% Cotton


Weighing a mere 9.9oz (size 43), the Boulder Boot is arguably the lightest boot in the world.  The upper is made of water-resistant nylon and full-grain leather to keep away moisture.  The whole boot is completely collapsible, great for stuffing into a pack during a hike and wearing around the campfire afterwords.  There’s absolutely nothing to this boot, no heel counter, no toe counter, no shank, and nothing stiff that would irritate the foot.  If a barely-there boot is what you’re in need of, look no further.

Next: Primal 2 (completely collapsible, extremely comfortable, ridiculously lightweight) - 1 mens1 ladies

Primal 2 Details

  • Last:  LemsLast™ foot-shaped
  • Upper:  Microsuede + open-weave mesh (100% vegan)
  • Sole:  8.0mm LemsRubber™ injection rubber
  • Insole: Optional removable 3.0mm MoistureWick foam
  • Lining: 100% Moisture-wicking polyester


We here at Lems Shoes don’t always wear shoes, but when we do we choose the Primal2. If lightweight (6.9oz), flexible, breathable, foot-shaped, and flat are all characteristics that you look for in footwear, than look no further than this shoe. The Primal2 is assembled using a no-sewn construction, which allows the shoe to comfortably form to the natural shape of your foot. Lightweight microsuede and open-weave mesh, allow your foot increased airflow and better breathability. The low-profile 8.0mm LemsRubber™ sole brings you closer to the ground for a more natural stride. Our LemsLast™ design, with its natural foot shape, provides you with that Feelgood Fit that we pride ourselves on. So whether at work, walking the dog, or running errands, the Primal2 is certainly the ‘go to shoe’ for you.

    Boy I’m in for the Primal 2. My feet feel better just thinking there might be an answer to being sore.

  2. 2

    Well what will Lem wear if we all takes his shoes?

    P.S. Im in :)

    Great to see the reviews up and running!

  3. 3

    I would love to review your shoes. I have written shoe reviews in the past and would love to try them out and give a review.

    I am a hiker, runner and trail runner.

    Thank you,
    Kristen Lodge

    Count me in! Both the boots and shoes look like excellent products.

  5. 5

    Well, Rebecca, it is a Happy Monday after all! Great to see the Gear Reviews again here on the OBN. I would be very interested in trying and reviewing either pair for men. My feet look like a road map of Idaho. They would enjoy the “puppy” love.

  6. 6

    Count me in!

  7. 7

    I’m in. Glad to see RNG back in action.

  8. 8

    I’d love to try and review the Primal 2 shoes – 1 pair of women’s please!

  9. 9

    Very willing to test these.
    Men’s Boots or Shoes.

    I’m in for either men’s or women’s.

  11. 11

    Count me in. I would love the Primal 2 in women’s. Thanks.

  12. 12

    I would love for the opportunity to review these shoes! Thank you for the opportunity!

  13. 13

    Very interesting shoes. After reading the Lems website about how standard athletic shoes fit I’d say that perhaps that’s why I have some foot issues. I tend to lean towards very well padded shoes but I am now intrigued with this shoe design and their reasons for engineering the shoes as they are. I am very interested in trying out either the womens’ primal 2 (I think this’d be my first choice) or boulder boot (I have been looking for some lightweight hiking shoes). Count me in!

  14. 14

    Hmmm, minimalist. That may be just the thing.

  15. 15

    Thanks for the opportunity. We enjoy gear reviews and would love to do more. We’re up for men’s or women’s. Thanks!

  16. 16

    I’m totally in. I am a sucker for a great pair of shoes!

  17. 17

    I would love to try and review either in a mens 12 wide or 13. The primal 2s look like somethin I would be more into… I just realized most of my shoes have holes in them… :D

  18. 18

    I’m interested. I’m looking for good shoes that will keep up with me outdoors.

  19. 19

    I would like to have a chance to review these boots.

  20. 20

    I would love the opportunity to review a pair of these if they are still available. My blog is more video in nature, and these look like they would be perfect for my upcoming trip to Kenya later this month.

    Comments are closed on this opportunity! Winners announced tomorrow….

    I can do these justice. Men’s size 13 please.
