Chelsea Boot Obsidian

Fans of the Primal Zen will be stoked because the Water Resistant Chelsea is here; featuring the same outsole you know and love, meaning this boot ticks all the right boxes: super lightweight, zero-drop, and ultra wide. Available in a gorgeous Espresso constructed with a Water Resistant membrane and oiled leather.  

*Sizing Note: Due to the Water Resistant membrane we suggest ordering up ½ size from your normal UK size. Please note the final fit is your personal choice!

*ORIGINAL NATURAL SHAPE: Maximum toe splay with the original Primal fit. Learn more! 


With its water resistant membrane and full-grain oiled leather upper, this Chelsea Boot will keep your feet cozy and as dry as possible.



Our proprietary IBR outsole is what makes Lems incredibly lightweight and flexible - giving your foot the sense of weightlessness.



Unlike traditional footwear that squeeze the toes together, our foot-shaped toe box allows for maximum room giving the toes ultimate freedom to wiggle and spread.



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



Whether your Winters are rainy, bitterly cold, or the snow didn’t get the memo that it’s officially Spring, our water resistant Chelsea boots help keep the elements out and the warmth in. 

From Fall through the last throes of Winter, these boots will be your trusty companions. Built on the same outsole as our beloved Primal Zen, you can expect the same zero-drop, lightweight, and ultra wide fit.

This boot can be dressed up or down, worn to the office, bar, or trail.  The Espresso and Obsidian colourways features a Water Resistant membrane and oiled leather upper so there’s no need to worry about the forecast. Just pull them on and go! 

Because of the oiled leather and water resistant membrane you will find that this upper is stiffer than the suede version, so if you're looking for a softer feeling right out of the box, then try the Chelsea Boot Cedar instead.
