I’ve had the Lems Trailhead Sequoia from Bprimal for about 8 months. They are my go to shoe for day to day wear. They aren’t as minimal as other shoes that I own and for me that is a good thing. A bit more sole is good for days where I’m mostly on pavement. I can walk all day in them no worries. I’ve also used them on a few day hikes up about 12km. They’re decently breathable and good for Melbourne autumn, winter and into spring. Once weather gets a bit warmer I switch to the Lems Mesa or sandals. My trailheads run true to my normal sneaker size.
Bprimal’s been great to deal with.
A really solid shoe. Could do with a slightly wider toe box near the little toe.
I hike daily and have gone through my fair share of hiking shoes. What I like about Lems is that their functionality competes with the high-end brands but they’re able to present the shoe as a sneaker. I’ve had chronic plantar fasciitis for years, so when I pick shoes, I really have to research to make sure I don’t buy something that messes up my feet. It’s why I like Lems Primal shoes. It’s also why I love these. For people complaining about the footbed and 4mm drop, I recommend trying them before knocking them. I have super wide feet with chronic foot conditions and see a podiatrist regularly for them and I’ve never been told that these 4mm drop were going to mess my feet up in anyway. Give em a try if you are on the fence. I can’t stop wearing mine and already bought a second pair.
