Lightweight, flexible, breathable, foot-shaped and flat are all characteristics of Lems footwear. The Primal 2 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. The Primal 2 is perfect for minimalist lovers and it is made of vegan-friendly materials so your feet are sure to be healthy and happy.

Lems' US sizing is a true fit - We recommend you use the US sizing below to get your most accurate fit.

If you are using EU sizing, you will need to order one size UP from your usual shoe size as the Primal's are a snug fit.

To give yourself additional volume in the shoe try removing the insole.  The insoles are designed to be removable to adjust to different volume feet.  Also, when wearing with Correct Toes, removing the insole is recommended.

They were initially pretty comfortable

But for some reason the toe box does not feel wide enough. I have some pretty wide feet and I can still feel the side of the toe box 'biting' in to my pinky toe and side of my foot. I ordered the largest size they have so I think I'm at a loss here.

Better than expected

I had a cheilectomy 4 weeks ago and for the first 2 weeks with foot up most of the time I had plenty of time to do some research. It seemed like Lems and correct toes were the way to go. I feel like for the most part I usually wear "practical' shoes but with a narrow heel always struggled to get a proper foot. I also stubbed my toe about 10 years ago which resulted in a hammertoe. These shoes are great! I bought them primarily for golf ( a huge market out there Lems team!) but I will be ordering other shoes for day to day wear as well. I would love to see sandals added to the repetoire of lems shoes. As we really don't wear closed toed shoes here much! Thanks for a great product and keep up the great work.

Fit Great

These shoes have room for my toes but fit snugly enough around the heel and stay put, yay!

Great so far!

Very impressed so far with this shoe. Im using it for work (hard floor, cement) and for running around town and everything seems wonderful. Curious to see how long they will last, because at the job we eat thur shoes pretty fast. Knees have been feeling better Ive got to remember to bend slightly tho and to walk with the ball and mild foot more than traditional foot wear.


I've really likes some of the other shoes from Lem's so I wanted to give these a try. I really like the style and they are just as comfortable as the other pairs of other styles that I have.
