Lems Primal 2 Slate
A Closer Look
From Our Customers
“I wanted to inform you that I received my Lems Primal 2 shoes today. I've been struggling with my feet for a while and I am extremely impressed by these shoes. They feel amazing and allow my feet to remain in their natural position instead of cramming my toes together. They are super lightweight and easy to walk in. I can't wait to see progress in my feet. THANK YOU!!”
—S.M., Temple Hills, MD
“I received the Lems Primal 2 shoes today and I love them. I have just recently returned to walking after 17 years of not being able to do so! What a great shoe to help me regain my balance and gait. I'm sure I'll be ordering another pair or two!! Thank you so much for your assistance when I needed it.”
—S.P., Tampa, FL
“I have a job that requires standing/moving around a store for 10 hours a couple of days a week. If it were not for the Lems Primal 2 shoes, I would not be able to stand the job; they are completely comfortable all day. I am glad I found them!”
—E.H., Vail, CO
“I received my Lems Primal 2 shoes and I LOVE them! I’m so excited to wear the Primal 2s to work; they are just dressy enough versus a running shoe. Thanks again for the great service and for offering this product!”

A Foot-Healthy & Comfortable Minimalist Shoe
The Lems Primal 2 is an attractive shoe that is flat from heel to toe, widest at the ends of the toes, and flexible in the sole. Profoundly comfortable, the versatile Primal 2 can be used in a variety of ways and settings, including for outings around town or for athletic activities, such as walking, hiking, and running. This foot-healthy minimalist shoe can be worn with just about anything, and it can be easily stowed, making it a great travel companion.
Flat & Flexible Sole, Wide Toe Box, Lightweight Design
Built using vegan materials, the Lems Primal 2 possesses a soft and accommodating upper and a wide toe box that leaves ample room for your toes to splay, the way nature intended. The zero drop, flexible, and air-infused rubber sole provides your foot with an optimal platform for foot and ankle stability and enables natural arch support, while the lightweight design of the Lems Primal 2 encourages quiet and conscientious footfalls.
Compatible with Other Helpful Natural Footgear
The Lems Primal 2 is compatible with a variety of natural footgear. The generous toe box of this foot-shaped shoe can easily accommodate Correct Toes toe spacers for most sets of feet, especially if you remove the included (optional) insole. You can also use the Primal 2 in combination with Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads or Strutz foot pads, and Naboso insoles for synergistic foot health benefits. Each Lems Primal 2 shoe weighs about 7 oz.
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 Primal 2:
Men's US Sizes Men's UK Sizes Men's Primal 2 Sizes 8 7 42 9 8 43 10 9 44 11 10 45 12 11 46
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 Primal 2 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.
