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.
Ordered 1/2 a size larger as instructed on site. Still 1/2 a size too small. Also, rubbed on both my heels enough to give blisters. Quality seemed good on face value. Returned.
