Lems Waterproof Boulder Boot
I love these. They are so very comfortable and I like the look. I have been wearing them with jeans around town and have also worn them for a couple of bush walks. They have not disappointed me at all. They are super comfortable. They are zero drop which I love and also provide some protection from spiky undergrowth and stones. I bought some canvas boulder boots 4 years ago. I had discovered zero drop shoes and had also learned that there was a shop that sold Lems in Vancouver, called ‘Distance Runner’. I am from Australia but was there for a Toastmasters convention in 2017. I bought the Boulder boots and also some red Primal 2’s. As soon as my feet were in them they felt instantly so comfortable, that I didn’t want to take them off. This goes for both the boulder boots and the primal 2’s. I love them both although perhaps the Primal 2’s are just that bit softer and more welcoming to my feet after a day’s hard walking However I ‘relegated’ the boulder boots for use on my farm work job where my role is to walk up & down rows of strawberry runners. I stop frequently to check the leaves, using my magnifier, for pests as well as for beneficial critters. Sometimes the ground underfoot is dry, sometimes it is wet & muddy. It is not uncommon to walk about 10 kms per day altogether as I pace up and down the rows of crop.I once wore Blundstone boots when walking in the paddocks. But they were heavy on my feet, they pinched my toes, the leather cracked with the constant wetness followed by drying out, They became hard and uncomfortable. My feet hated them and so did I. This was the reason I decided to use my boulder boots for the job. They were a delight, so light on my feet and comfortable. No toe pinching at all. These were not the waterproof ones so they were frequently wet and then dried again. But unlike the Blundstones, the boulder boots stayed soft and comfortable despite frequently getting wet and then drying out. This is a very tough testing sort of a workout for any type of footwear. But after four seasons of this treatment, my original boulder boots are still hanging together. Clearly they were extremely well made in the first place, to be able to withstand such tough conditions! They are just now starting to fray a little. This is the reason I thought to replace them with another pair. However the new waterproof leather ones are so lovely that I don’t like to dirty them in the muddy clay paddocks! I think I can get another season’s wear out of my old boulder boots before they fall apart from this tough treatment. So this is not exactly a review of my new Waterproof Boulder Boots. It is a review of my old Boulcer boots as well. regards Linda H
I’m so pleased with my boots, love them! I wear them most of the time, general day time, for gardening, hill walks, give them a quick brush and wear them to go out in, take them off for barefoot beach walks and going to bed!
Lovely soft roomy boots
At first I thought I had bought a size too large as they were wide, felt floaty, but as I wore them they got so comfortable I don't take them off all day, a lightweight sole and upper, terrific , I personalised them with bright red laces:)
Great boots and very comfortable
Fit perfect with the guide
I was shocked wanted me to go up 2 sizes but they fit perfectly with a good amount of room and look great. I love them! My friend is keen to get some now too.
