Most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned
I’ll be getting another pair soon, the mileage I’m putting into these shoes is ridiculous. Not knowingly - I just seem to never want to take them off.
Great shoe and great service
I don’t normally write reviews but felt compelled to in this case. I’ve found the Trailhead to very good quality, true to size (per sizing chart) and very comfortable. They have less cushion in the sole than others e.g. Altras but the shape is great for my foot. They look pretty subtle and don’t have a superwide toe box or the bent axis that a lot of minimal/barefoot shoes have. Overall I really like the look. The service from Bprimal was excellent too. I knew they were on backorder when I ordered and they turned up when expected. I didn’t know at the time of ordering but Bprimal’s return policy was one of the best I’ve seen. I really don’t think you can go wrong with these shoes!
My feet love them. Toes already opening out.
All good. Wrong shoes were exchanged for bigger size. i received a phone call to discuss colour option. very helpful. shoes arrived as per instructions.
GREAT "MINIMAL INSPIRED" SHOE
I wear exclusively Lems for my casual and work shoes (Boulder Boot and Nine2Five), and I also own the Primal 2 so I like minimal shoes. However I really appreciate the effort Lems put into making a durable and affordable hiking shoe, even though it's immediately obvious that they are not truly minimal. I had been looking for a "minimal inspired" hiking shoe for some time. Thanks for taking the time to explain your design process as well. I wear 45's in my other Lems shoes and the 11 Trailhead fit perfectly. The quality and durability is impressive for a new shoe design, especially one that is rather different than the other products. I really appreciate how rugged they are - it is always an option to go hiking in my nice all-leather Boulder Boot or Nine2Five but I believe that the rocks, roots and mud on the trail would have damaged the leather and I didn't want that. And frankly for hiking I wanted more support than the other Lems shoes provide, even if that meant wearing a different shoe style for a while. Although not truly minimal, the Trailhead shares several key principles and in my opinion it does it's job perfectly for a reasonable price.
