This product is currently sold out.
An Attractive & Versatile Casual Boot
Foot-friendly and roomy in the toe box, the Lems Chukka is an attractive and versatile casual boot that offers your foot a healthy environment in which to flex, bend, and move. This boot, with its stylish cut and fashionable design, is an excellent choice for any number of occasions or settings, whether it be for trips around town or for meetings with clients in your office or co-working space.
Zero Drop Sole, Wide Toe Box, Suede Upper
Like all the other footwear options we feature on the Natural Footgear site, the Chukka possesses a flexible sole that is completely flat from heel to toe and a toe box that is widest at the ends of your toes, where you need the width the most. With its ultra-soft suede upper and injection blown rubber sole, this minimalist boot is incredibly comfortable and lightweight (~10 oz.), and it also packs away easily, making it a great option for longer trips.
Compatible With Correct Toes & Other Footgear
The Chukka's generous toe box means that this boot is compatible with Correct Toes for most sets of feet, especially if you remove the included (optional) insole. This boot also works great in combination with Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads or Strutz foot pads, and Naboso insoles. The Naboso Neuro Ball is another beneficial tool that you can use alongside your Lems Chukka boots to improve overall foot health.
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.

To get the most out of your Lems Chukka boots, the manufacturer recommends that you order a half-size up from your normal US shoe size. For example, if you normally wear a men's US size 11 shoe, consider ordering an 11.5 in the Lems Chukka.
If you're on the fence about 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.
Sizing Tip #1: To create additional roominess within the boot, we suggest removing the included (optional) boot liner/insole; this action does not, in any way, affect the performance of the boot. Optionally, and to enhance balance, posture, agility, and general foot/body awareness, you might consider adding thin, flexible Naboso insoles instead.
Sizing 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.
