100% WATERPROOF UPPER
With its waterproof membrane and full-grain oiled leather upper, this Chelsea Boot will keep your feet cozy and dry.
WIDE TOE BOX
Unlike traditional footwear that squeeze the toes together, our foot-shaped toe box allows for maximum room giving the toes ultimate freedom to wiggle and spread.
Places the forefoot and heel flat to the ground correcting posture, aligning your spine, and encouraging mid-foot strike.
Our proprietary IBR outsole is what makes Lems incredibly lightweight and flexible - giving your foot the sense of weightlessness.
This was my first zero drop "barefoot" shoe and I've been completely converted! I have naturally quite wide feet (EE)/(EEE) and have found many winter Chelsea style boot options to be rather bulky and restrictive. The fit and finish of the shoe feels on par with Blundestones that I've tried in the past, but the comfort has been exceptional and they have been plenty warm for Toronto winter so far! In my limited experience with barefoot footwear, these boots are a bit rigid and don't have a ton of ground-feel, but this has been a worthwhile trade-off considering that they might last a little longer and provide a fair amount of traction in the harsher winter conditions.
Only a little slippery on ice/snow
I have two pairs of blundstones that I sadly have to get rid of because they just started to hurt my feet so bad once I started getting into barefoot shoes. At first, these gave me blisters, but I almost always do with any shoe. After a while it was fine and these boots are my go tos!
Foe someone with very wide feet, these boots are a joy. A bit tough to pull on but a shoehorn does the trick.
Roomy and comfortable. Have been wearing these boots consistently with no issues. The waterproof claim holds up and they clean up easily. Definitely recommended.
