    Do you love the Lems Primal Zen? Then this Chelsea Boot Waterproof is probably for you too: same outsole, super-light, zero-drop and ultra-wide. The WP version is made of oiled leather combined with a waterproof membrane.

    This product is available in the following colors:

    Product description

    LEMS CHELSEA BOOT WP Espresso

    Like the Primal Zen, these Chelsea Boot feature the LEMS Natural ShapeTM outsole. This sole is the widest sole within the LEMS range, but it is also just a bit thicker (9.5mm) and firmer at midfoot and heel level. This makes this sole excellent for slightly colder (or wetter?) days, but it also has a lot less ground feel than classic barefoot shoes.

    Thanks to the combination of oiled leather and waterproof membrane, this shoe will keep your feet nice and dry. Want a slightly softer/flexible version of this shoe? Then choose the version without the waterproof membrane!

    Features:

    • Upper: Oiled leather
    • Lining: 100% waterproof membrane
    • Outsole: 9.5mm LemsRubber™
    • Footbed: Removable 3,5mm PU insole. Want more barefoot feeling? Take it out completely or replace it with a thinner insole (thinner insole not included)
    • Drop: 0.0mm (Zero-Drop)

    Barefoot or not?

    The Lems shoes are without doubt the shoes with the thickest (or least thin?) soles in our assortment. Sometimes people ask whether you can call these shoes barefoot. Maybe barefoot is the wrong term and you should better call them minimalistic shoes. On the other hand, there is no exact definition of "barefoot shoes".

    At IEDEREEN LOOPT, the shoes have the following characteristics:

    • Anatomic and therefore asymmetric fit: the shoes are wide where your feet are wide and the toes are not compressed in the shoe.
    • Zero-Drop: the heel and forefoot are on the same level (the shoe is therefore completely flat, without heel rise)
    • A relatively thin and flexible sole. How thin? Well, this depends on the brand and the model. The thickness of the sole is not always directly proportional to the flexibility of the shoe. We ourselves have made the choice to set the limit of the outsole to 1 centimeter thickness (there are brands that call themselves barefoot and sell shoes with a sole of 2 or even 3 centimeters thick!). The thinnest shoes in our range have an outsole of 4 mm and this Chelsea Boot WP is with its 9.5mm the thickest.

    Sizing:

    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 8, 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.
