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 Minimalist Shoe for Healthy, Natural Feet
The Lems Primal 2 is an attractive, natural shoe that is flat from heel to toe, widest at the ends of the toes, and extremely flexible in the sole. Lems is one of the first companies to combine these foot-health-positive design features in one shoe.
Wide Toe Box Accommodates Natural Toe Splay
These wide toe box shoes leave ample room for your toes to spread, the way nature intended, and they can be used in combination with Correct Toes, Injinji toe socks, and Strutz foot pads or Pedag metatarsal pads to help restore your natural toe splay and foot health.
Great for Casual or Athletic Use
Lems minimalist shoes, including the Primal 2 model, are built without the use of animal leather, making them appropriate for vegans. Lems shoes are lightweight, durable, and can be used in both casual and recreational settings. Some people use Lems Primal 2 shoes as their primary running shoe.

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. 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/footbed; 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.
