I was excited for my Primal 2s to arrive, and was exceptionally pleased to pop them out of the box and discover that they fit, and felt extremely spacious. I have a problematic bunion on one foot and these shoes were totally pain free. I kept looking down at my feet while wearing them the first few days and expecting to see big floppy clown shoes, but was pleased that the Lems don't look huge given how spacious they are around the toes. I have had trouble with the Lems sizing in the past, so I did some further research on the Lems website. The size chart to measure the length of your foot to find the appropriate size allowed me to find the right fit, rather than following their American/EU size guideline, which doesn't work for me at all.
I have these in slate (so versatile, my favourite colour) and black. Comfortable straight out of the box and not too dorky looking. They are very soft and flexible and I have had no issues with blisters or rubbing. Wide enough for correct toes too. I wear them with jeans, shorts, skirts and casual dresses. Fabulous service from bprimal.
I love my new pair of Primals. They’re my first barefoot shoe and I purchased them to go travelling with this month. They are comfortable enough to wear all day just after a couple of days of wearing. Size guide was spot on and my email inquiry regarding sizing was answered very quickly.
Awesome shoe. Super light with a brilliant toe box. Can really grip the ground. Ventilation is nice. Sizing chart was spot on for me (wear a size 10US in men’s and the 44 fit like a dream. Impressed with these shoes!
I mainly wanted to make a note about size. I am most often a Women's 10 or a Men's 8.5; which puts me between 42 and 43 in Lem's. Based on reviews I went with the 43. They were definitely a little long but felt good around the house so I decided to keep them. Having worn them for a week now I wish I'd exchanged for the 42. They work, but I find I drag the toe in certain situations. I wear these for walking and casual wear as well as at work. I am coming from a Merrell trail glove and found these to be too big a step so I put another thin insole in and they work great. I had to do this with the Merrell initially too but was able to get rid of it after a week or so. These are an attractive shoe (Lem's on the side notwithstanding), well ventilated and fell secure on the foot. Love the wide toebox.
