It took Lems nearly a decade of thoughtful design and prototyping to create the Primal Zen - the successor to the beloved Primal 2! The Primal Zen offers the same minimalist casual shoe that is vegan-friendly and zero-drop, but with some added cushion and a more grounded base. Its newly designed outsole guarantees that ultra-light fit and feel you've come to love in the Primal 2, yet adds a bit more protection and durability with its platform that naturally wraps the shape of the foot. Its upper is built with a combination of breathable air mesh and microfiber, so your feet will truly feel at peace wherever your next journey takes you!
Their proprietary IBR outsole is what makes Lems incredibly lightweight and flexible - giving your foot the sense of weightlessness.
The vegan-friendly materials combine a PU synthetic upper with air mesh for maximum air flow to wick away moisture and keep you presentable all day long!
Places the forefoot and heel flat to the ground correcting posture, aligning your spine, and encouraging mid-foot strike.
WIDE TOE BOX
Unlike traditional footwear that squeeze the toes together, Lems foot-shaped toe box allows for maximum room giving the toes ultimate freedom to wiggle and spread.

These were the first pair of minimalist footwear I’ve tried and I instantly felt my feet were finally home. I bought a pair of the Chelsea boots the same day and love them as much, so much that I splurged on a 3rd pair of Lems, the Boulder Boot Grip. All I need now is a pair of barefoot sandals and I’ll be all set. I can genuinely say that I revel in these shoes and boots and can’t stop telling everyone they should look into minimalist footwear. My nephew bought the primal zens on my recommendation for his size 14 feet and he raves about them.
They are definitely less forgiving than the previous style.
But I really like how they have a more reinforced toe, since I was getting a hole in the mesh in my old pair.
I love this shoe for it's wide forefoot and the mesh. I can put toe spacers in them without problems. They are super comfortable. I'm glad Lems went wide on these even though it takes getting used to the look. A great transition shoe to very minimal footwear as you don't feel rocks or gravel. Great for tennis perhaps?
