BOULDER BOOT: THE LIGHTEST HIKING BOOT?
Finding walking boots that are ultra-minimalist, with a wide toe box, super-flexible and zero-drop design is harder than finding the infamous Bigfoot...
But why? At Lems Shoes, they believe that you really don't have to be an environmentalist to know that a barefoot/minimalist boot shaped to the feet has its benefits. That's why they developed the Lems Boulder Boot: a true barefoot walking boot that promotes healthy foot development and allows for better balance, more mobility in the feet, legs and back and helps alleviate certain foot ailments, such as bunions and hammer toes.
If you're ready for a hiking boot that weighs barely 280 grams (size 43), can pack into the smallest of daypacks and carry you on the farthest Bigfoot searches, then it's time you discovered the Lems Boulder Boot.

We are often asked what size barefoot shoes you should choose. Unfortunately the answer is not that simple. Each brand has its own size chart and even within different models of the same brand there are often differences. Therefore it is important that you measure the length of your feet. A minimalist shoe is at least 7, but preferably 12mm longer than your foot length. Do you want to measure your feet easily at home? You can with the Plus12
Unfortunately, wrong/old measurement tables circulate on the internet. Therefore, we measure the length of the insole ourselves and add it to the size chart. This way you can determine your ideal size.
Correct Toes Approved:
- Zero Drop: in other words no elevation in the heel
- No toespring (or the sole is flexible enough that the toes come flat when loaded)
- Wide at the toes: allows natural toe spread
- Flexible sole: allows natural movement of the foot
In barefoot shoes with the "Correct Toes Approved" label, most people will be able to wear Correct Toes.
