If you loved the incredibly good looking Leather Boulder Boot, have we got something exciting for you. The upgraded version is made with all the features you know and love, like supreme flexibility, a zero-drop platform, and unparalleled packability, but now, it’s also water-resistant! 

*Sizing Note - Order A HALF SIZE LARGER than your normal UK size.  If you plan on wearing thicker socks, then consider ordering 1 FULL SIZE LARGER than your normal UK size. These boots are fitting more snug than our original Boulder Boots (Leather + Nylon Denier / Canvas) due to the added membrane. ( EG. size 8UK with socks ORDER 9UK) This is advice please remember the final fit is your personal preference.

The Water-Resistant Boulder Boot has long been our most requested shoe, and we’re confident that they’ll be worth the wait. Speaking of weight, this boot still maintains the lightweight frame you’ve come to know and love from Lems — even though we’ve added a unique water-resistant membrane, these puppies will still hit the scale at a featherlight 12.9oz. 

We also took some time to rethink the overall construction of our latest release, and reinforced everything; from a thicker gauge thread to an overall stronger outer construction, this is our toughest pair yet. And yes, before you ask, they’re zero-drop. Ready to plow through an ice pack, or anything else on your agenda? Good, because so are our Water-resistant Boulder Boots, which keep your feet shockingly clear from clammy conditions due to a breathable water-resistant membrane that helps stop water from penetrating into the boot, while still allowing the heat from your feet to escape. This kind-of-a-big-deal boot also utilizes a pre-treated leather upper, that can be reapplied with waterproofing wax/spray to help extend its water repellency.

The Water-Resistant Boulder Boot is the one shoe that does it all without ever missing a step. You can easily pack it, but you’ll also feel good wearing it everywhere, everyday. And just so you know — this boot was designed with an incredible amount of detail and care, and we can’t wait to see where you go in it.

Rain, sun, snow? We’re ready. Not only can you skip through streams and hopefully keep your toes dry, you can up the ante on where your travel takes you this winter, thanks to your new favorite snow-proof pair, complete with a gusseted tongue.  Please be prepared to assist the water repellency with additional product such as Nikwax Aqueous Wax, Nikwax Waterproof Cream or Dubbin to help keep your feet dry.  


We’ve utilized a 100% full-grain leather with an oiled finish, that is pre-treated to be water repellent. To increase the water-repellency and extend it over the life of the shoe, we suggest using a waterproofing wax such as Nikwax Aqueous Wax or Dubbin and reapplying at least 2-3 times per year, preferably after each use in wet conditions..


Our injection blown rubber outsole is what makes Lems incredibly lightweight. Deemed as the perfect travel companion, this boot can pack down to the size of your favorite puff jacket.


Places the forefoot and heel flat to the ground correcting posture, aligning your spine, and encouraging mid-foot strike.


These everyday shoes are some of the lightest on the market and are intended to feel like you're wearing nothing at all.


Whether you prefer your laces loose, or tied up tight, thanks to the gusseted tongue you’ll always be protected from the elements.
