Long-term use of narrow shoes has lasting consequences on the foot’s functional anatomy and are legitimately tied to bunion formation - a painful bony bump that develops at the big toe joint. While many believe bunions are inherited, research backing this belief is uncertain. More firmly established research provides evidence that narrow shoes, especially on feet that are still growing, is the root cause of bunions.
Correct Toes have been tested and proven by hundreds of patients to re-align the toes and straighten the big toe. They can be worn inside our Lems Origins (Primal 2, Boulder Boot, Nine2Five, Mariner) due to our wide toe box and natural fitting design.
If you want a minimalist running shoe that’s thin and level enough to bring out the best in your forefoot running form, yet has reliably robust durability for any harsh hard surface, the Primal 2 shoes by Lems will exceed all your long distance road running needs!
Like most of us, I wore traditional hiking boots when backpacking or going on scenic day hikes. I would wear normal sneakers or sandals in the car to and from the trailhead, and after miles of hiking in my traditional boots my feet were both sore and uncomfortable.
One of the most beneficial aspects to minimalist footwear can be its vast potential to help prevent common foot-related injuries and chronic pain from occurring in the first place. Natural footwear companies, such as Lems, do this by designing shoes around the shape of the human foot, rather than forcing the bare foot into an unnatural and eventually uncomfortable silhouette.
I received this pair of boots as a gift and I could not be happier. Every time I wear them someone asks where I got them. But not only do they look great, they are extremely comfortable. Highly recommend!! - Joe
It’s not uncommon to race off to work, power through the day and focus on health after the fact. Maybe it’s squeezing in a bike ride after work or in the early morning. Or cooking a healthy late-night dinner for the family. Or spending some decompression time on the car ride home or a short meditation session before bed.
Lems works with some of the foremost natural foot-form doctors in the world. One of those is family physician and runner Dr. Mark Cucuzzella. He has provided some superior insights for Lems’ minimalist shoe designs.
