Treat your feet to the Lems Primal Zen - the next evolution of the beloved Primal 2! This unisex shoe offers a minimalist, vegan-friendly design with added cushion and a durable, zero-drop platform. With a breathable air mesh and microfiber upper, your feet will feel at peace no matter where your 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.


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 shoes are AMAZING!

I’ve been wearing these shoes all day since arriving in Andalucia, Spain two weeks ago. I’ve hiked in them, walked on cobblestones streets, visited ruins, traipsed up and down steep inclines and my feet have not felt sore at the end of the day. Highly recommend!

Favourite Lems Shoe Yet

Fantastic shoe by Lems. The primal zen is a comfy shoe, plenty of width in the toe box and feels solid.
The shipping was fast and shopping experience excellent.

Love my Primal Zens

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.

Looking good

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?
