Lems Nine2five Black
A Closer Look
From Our Customers
“I recently purchased a pair of Lems Nine2Fives. I love them more than words can say. Now I know beyond doubt that shoes don't have to hurt my feet until they are broken in.”
“I just wanted to say thanks for being so helpful while I tried to find the appropriate size and style of shoe for me. The Lems Nine2Five is the first pair of shoes I've owned in years that doesn't cause me pain while walking, standing, or even just while sitting.”
—C.H., Saint Clair Shores, MI
“Just wanted to touch base with you and let you know that I'm happy with the Lems Nine2fives at my UPS job [...] Only took a day or two to break in and they work great with my Correct Toes, and the boss even complimented me on having a shoe that finally meets their dress code :)”
“My favorite shoes are the Lems Nine2five. I can wear them for long periods of time, standing or walking [...] I have been very happy with your service. Thanks!”
—F.B., Parkville, MD

A Comfortable Minimalist Dress Shoe
The Nine2five is a men’s full-grain leather Oxford dress shoe that’s perfect for a variety of occasions and settings, including office and casual situations. Whether you dress these shoes up with a pair of slacks or down with a pair of jeans, the Lems Nine2five offers you style, comfort, and versatility.
Wide Toe Box, Zero Drop Platform
Most importantly, though, the Lems Nine2five is a shoe that will support the health of your feet and toes, naturally. The anatomically appropriate toe box allows your toes to splay the way nature intended while the completely flat sole from heel to toe ensures that natural arch support is enabled, helping you avoid conventional arch orthotics and problems such as bunions, hammertoes, and plantar fasciosis.
Compatible with Correct Toes & Other Footgear
Note: If you are new to using Lems footwear, we recommend that you start in slowly, gradually building up your wear-time and giving your body the chance to adapt to the thinner soles and the increased workload on your feet.

Note: Sizing varies between brands and sometimes even between different models of the same brand. What follows is the sizing information specific to the Lems Nine2five:

If you're still unsure of what size to order, consider ordering both sizes and then simply return the size that doesn't fit as well for a refund. If you have concerns about sizing, feel free to contact us or Lems customer service. You can also use this Lems Nine2five Sizing Guide to help you determine the best possible size for you.
Tip 1: To create additional roominess within the shoe, we suggest removing the included (optional) shoe liner/insole; this action does not, in any way, affect the performance of the shoe.
Tip 2: Correct Toes toe spacers will often add width and length to the foot. If you’re planning to wear Correct Toes with your footwear, we recommend sizing up, especially if you are on the border between sizes.
