I am really impressed with these shoes! I am in the process of transitioning to barefoot shoes and I needed a pair that could replace shoes that I wear every single day. The boulders have done that. They can be dressed up and dressed down. They are very comfortable and there is more than enough room for toe correctors. I would recommend going up half a size like the website suggests also.
I'm finding these very comfortable but have only worn them a handful of times being in a tropical climate. Chafing a bit at the ankles but getting progressively better. Good grip on steep slope, need a bit of wearing in. Overall very happy with the product so far. Was unsure of the size so measured my foot in cm and wrote to b-primal who gave me good advice on what size would be best.
I love these, I’ve work them everyday since I got them. This boot is very comfortable around the foot from first wear. There was a bit of rubbing around the top of the boot around the back of the calf so I’d recommend wearing thick socks long enough to go over the top for a while. Definitely get a size up. I got a women’s full size up from my usual size and they feel great. They look great and feel like good quality. I’ve only had them about three weeks so I can’t really say much about their lifespan, but very much hoping I’ll get to wear them for a while
I am a long term barefoot aficionado and my new Lems Boulder Boots are BRILLIANT! They are the perfect minimalist barefoot version of a solid kickass boot. No, they don't have "super ground feel". Yes, they are the lightest, most comfortable "biker boots" you'll ever wear. They are a wonderful compromise where you need something sturdy, but still want to move as Mother Nature intended.
These were bought for my 16 year old son, who is a giant. We ordered an initial pair which were a size and a half bigger than he had been wearing in the Primals (and were too small - despite following Lems suggested measuring process). Returning them was easy and we soon had a pair two sizes bigger again, which are a perfect fit. He loves them, they look great, and my wife has now suggested she needs a pair. I (and my son) would strongly recommend them, but be prepared to muck around with sizing.
