ALL-ADVENTURE, TRAVEL ANYWHERE SHOE

Our most versatile shoe yet, the Lems Mountain Sneaker is our take on a minimalist hiking shoe equipped for any trail, trek or urban travel adventure. With its wide toe box, minimal heel drop, and lightweight design, it's sure to keep pushing your boundaries. Whether you're climbing a 14er, going on a bike and brew tour, or even backpacking around the world, the Trailhead will be sure to take you far away from the ordinary. Designed for the trail but styled for the city streets, this 100% vegan hiking shoe will be the answer for your every move.

MOUNTAIN-TO-TOWN OUTSOLE
Engineered with a new, low profile, rubber tread that has the best of both worlds: ample traction on trails, AND excellent durability on pavement. 

WIDE TOE BOX
We've re-designed the original Lems Last for a more active fit. This new sneaker features a foot-shaped toe box, paired with a slim heel fit. 

RUGGED UPPER
The upper is made of durable materials that stand up to the abuses of trails, and also daily wear and tear. 

LOW HEEL DROP
With 4mm of drop, compared to the traditional 12mm of drop, the Trailhead naturally decreases heel-striking for a more natural gait and healthier posture. 

FIRM CUSHIONING
When your foot is on too soft of cushion, you end up with pain and discomfort. We've formulated a firm EVA midsole that'll keep your feet happy all day long.

THE TRAILHEAD - VERSION 2

 Here are the features we’ve updated for the newest edition of the Trailhead.

WIDER TOEBOX: We widened the toebox on the updated Trailhead, giving more space to the toes (specifically the 4th and 5th) but kept it slimmer and sleeker than the toeboxes found in our origin series.
MORE FLEXIBILITY: We removed the 1.2mm TPU rock plate, after realizing that our rubber outsole provides enough stability and protection. The increased flexibility allows for a more efficient stride and better proprioceptive feel of the terrain.  Even with these changes, the Trailhead is still a great shoe for hiking.
BETTER HEEL FIT: The heel has been changed and adapted to create a more comfortable fit than the original Trailhead.
MIDSOLE AND OUTSOLE DENSITY: By decreasing the hardness of the EVA midsole and rubber by approximately 10%, we were able to increase the flexibility and create a more comfortable sole platform within the Trailhead.
DECREASED MIDSOLE ARCH THICKNESS: The arch area was dropped by 1.5mm, which lowered the effective drop of the shoe. This led to the 4mm drop feeling less raised than it previously did.
BUNION AREA OVERLAY REMOVED: We removed the overlay that wrapped around the first metatarsal, taking away the pressure point over this area, making the shoe feel wider in the ball of the foot.
TONGUE SHOELACE KEEPER SIMPLIFIED: To release some of the pressure at the top of the foot, we updated the lace keeper to a simpler structure.
ARCH BAND LINING REMOVED: We removed the additional lining material that wrapped the arch of the foot for a more comfortable fit in the instep area.
LOGO CHANGE: Last but not least, we updated the label on the tongue, to our new "LEMS" Mountain logo.

SIZING

The Trailhead is based on true US sizing, so choose your normal US size. 

This shoe is narrower than your typical Lems shoe so may not be suitable if you have a very wide foot. 

For women - if you have a wide foot, choose the Mens sizing for extra width. Please Contact us if you need help choosing the correct size.

Sensational

It's always a little daunting buying a new pair of shoes from a manufacturer you aren't familiar with online. I was pleasantly surprised with these shoes though. They are all day walking comfortable and the wider toebox suits me perfectly. Would definitely recommend these.

Nice shoe, but not for me.

I wanted to love the Trailhead V2, but unfortunately they're just not wide enough for my foot and too stiff for my liking. Nice looking shoe, but not what I'd come to expect from Lems. Absolutely no issue with the service from BPrimal. Efficient and hassle free delivery and return.

Thanks for the review Jason. Lems designed these as a Transition shoe so they are not as flexible and minimal as some of the other Lems Models you might be accustomed to. I would recommend checking back in with us next year when Lems release a new model called the Primal Pursuit - which will have a trail outsole similar to the Trailhead, but an upper similar to the Primal 2. We cant wait!

Such a great shoe!

I have loved these shoes right out of the box from my first hike. They look great and they perform even better. Perfect combination of comfort and ground feel- as in you can feel completely the ground under your feet, but without the discomfort of feeling everything under your feet! Makes them perfect for rock scrambling and rough trails. As well as trails they've been great on sand (practically no sand got in the shoes amazingly!), and cool and comfortable around the streets. Good on wet surfaces too, the grip is really good. First time I've worn shoes without ankle support hiking, which I thought might bother me, but really didn't at all. Also first shoes I've worn hiking that I haven't wanted to take off immediately for the drive home! Honestly, loving these. Thanks bprimal for stocking a vegan shoe that is actually really really good!
