Lems Primal 2


Key Features

  • Zero-drop platform: Places the forefoot and heel flat on the ground, which fixes your posture, aligns your spine, and encourages you to strike the ground with the middle of your foot.
  • Roomy toe box for natural foot movement: Unlike shoes that squeeze toes together, Lems shoes have a foot-shaped toe box that give your feet room to move. Not only does the Lems Primal 2 have a sufficiently wide forefoot for most feet, but it’s also shaped in a way that accommodates natural toe splay. In other words, the Primal 2’s toe box is as close to foot-shaped as we’ve ever seen, which is excellent for promoting optimal foot health.
  • Comfortable design: The Primal 2 features a foot-friendly design and high-quality materials, which include soft microfiber, an open-weave mesh upper, and an air-injected rubber outsole.
  • Lightweight and flexible design: The Primal 2 has a super light and flexible IBR outsole and only weighs 6.9 oz.
  • Vegan materials: All of the materials, from the laces to the glue, are 100% vegan, made of microfiber and breathable air mesh.
  • Removable insole for customization
