A Comfortable Around-Town or Athletic Shoe
The Lems Primal Pursuit is a fantastic all-rounder—a sporty zero drop, wide toe box transitional shoe that also works great for all sorts of outdoor athletic endeavors. Built with both foot comfort and health in mind, the high-performing Primal Pursuit is equally great as a go-to around-town shoe or as a durable trail companion. Indeed, use this thoughtfully-designed sneaker as your primary walking, hiking, or trail running shoe, or combine it with a pair of jeans for your urban adventures.
A Nice Blend of Sole Protection & Ground Feel
Vegan, breathable, and lightweight (each Lems Primal Pursuit shoe weighs about 10.5 oz.), this foot-forward trainer incorporates a grippy Trail Traction outsole with recessed grooves and 3.5 mm singular lugs and a 100 percent moisture-wicking polyester lining. The 14 mm stack height of the Primal Pursuit offers a nice blend of sole protection and ground feel for those who want slightly more material beneath the foot for vigorous athletic activities or for the purpose of transitioning from conventional footwear.
Accommodating, Works With Other Footgear
The accommodating Lems Primal Pursuit works great with a whole host of other natural footgear. The ample toe box of this healthy-foot-shaped transitional and athletic shoe pairs nicely with Correct Toes toe spacers for most sets of feet, particularly if you remove the included (optional) insole. Other kinds of helpful footgear that you can use in combination with the Primal Pursuit include Injinji toe socks, Pedag metatarsal pads, and thin and textured Naboso proprioceptive insoles.

To get the most out of your Lems Primal Pursuit shoes, the manufacturer recommends that you order a half-size up from your normal US shoe size. For example, if you normally wear a women's US size 8 shoe, consider ordering an 8.5 in the Lems Primal Pursuit. If you are between sizes, order up to the next available size.
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 shoe, we suggest removing the included (optional) shoe liner/insole; this action does not, in any way, affect the performance of the shoe. 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.
