Lems Shoes: The Holy Grail in Footwear for an Amputee



Correct Toes Reviews: Why Lems Customers Love In-Shoe Toe Spacers

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.

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition related to the long, fibrous tissue running along the bottom of the foot. This thick tissue, known as fascia, connects from the toes to the heel and is designed to help support the arch of the foot.

Lems Primal 2 Shoe Review for Forefoot Running

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!

Wide Toe Box Hiking Boots: What's The Benefit?

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.

Understanding Injury Prevention & Foot Health

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.

Lems Boulder Boot Reviews: Why Our Customers Love Our Boots

I LOOK AROUND AND WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE COULD BENEFIT FROM THESE SHOESI held the door for a man at the gas station this morning, and saw him wincing, and wondered if his feet were hurting him. It is a new perspective I have on things, in part thanks to my Lems. I had been struggling with Plantar fasciitis and general foot pain for about 1 1/2 years and i recently read "born to run", and had a "lightbulb moment" when I could almost feel in my feet what was wrong. After some internet research i decided to buy a set of correct toes, and the Lems Boulder Boots. I immediately started to feel a change in my feet. I could wear these boots and walk around without the deadening pain coming on. It had gotten really bad. But now I could immediately feel it going away. I had other discomforts as my feet started using muscles that weren't getting used much, and the correct toes forced my feet into new positions, but it feel like a "good hurt," like I was headed in the right direction. I've only had the Lems about a week now, but wearing them almost all the time, and the correct toes a few hours every other day, the progress has been great! Already ordered my second pair of Lems! The shoe is comfortable, seems to be made well and i'm totally hooked. Super lightweight too. If you're having foot problems this may be your solution. Give them a try and check out correct toes as well. p.s. I'm not getting paid to advertise, although it probably sounds like it, I just really like these shoe! - Del

Healthier ways to stay sustained at work

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.

Three important insights from the Natural Running Center

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.

I Made The Switch to Minimalist Shoes - I'll Never Go Back!

Like most people, I didn't think much about my feet or what footwear I wore day in and day out. I wore standard dress shoes that squeezed my toes together during the work week, and a pair of rugged hiking boots for the most part on the weekends.
