Built on a zero-drop platform and weighing in at an ultra-lightweight 6.9oz, the Primal 2 is perfect for minimalist lovers. With the Lems natural-shape fit and vegan-friendly materials your feet are sure to be healthy and happy.



We don’t always wear shoes, but when we do, we choose the OG of the Lems line, the Primal2 – an ultra-minimalist, everyday shoe that let’s you get the most out of every day. Its’ wide toebox, natural shape, and inspired minimalist running shoe design are ideal for any daily deed that your calendar calls for. Did we mention the zero drop outsole will make you more grounded than a spring chicken with aspirations of flight? Or the lightweight 6.9oz frame that gives you the impression that your feet are on cloud 9? Oh, and how about the super soft, vegan friendly materials that allow the foot to flex like a master of yin yoga? These features come together to comprise the Primal2. All this while promoting healthy foot development and aiding in alleviating certain foot ailments such as bunions and hammertoes.  A package deal like the Primal2 is rarer than a unicorn colony dwelling under any double rainbow! So, whether standing at work, walking the dog, or running everyday errands, the Primal2 is certainly the 'go to shoe' for you. What are you waiting for? Carpe diem and seize yourself a pair of the insanely comfortable Primal2.

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


Our proprietary IBR outsole is what makes Lems incredibly lightweight - 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.


Are the Primal 2 soles non-marking?
-They are not non-marking.

Can you clean the Primal 2’s in the washer?
-With the full IBR outsole, high heat in the washing machine can shrink the shoes. With that being said, machine washing is NOT recommended. Instead, we suggest using a soft scrub brush, soap, and lukewarm water to remove any dirt or stains. Make sure to allow your shoes to air dry completely for 24hrs before wearing. *Please note: if you soak your shoes in hot water for a long period of time, this can cause the dye fixative/mordant to be removed and can result in the colour running.
Sizing for the Primal?
-The Primals are built on a different outsole compared to our other styles, therefore, we do have a different sizing chart for the Primal 2. We recommend that you purchase your regular UK size, but if you are between sizes, we recommend purchasing the larger size. 

Are the Primal 2’s vegan friendly?
-Sure are!

Obviously a big change but I really like how they look and they are not uncomfortable at all. Would recommend for anyone trying to correct flat feet/bunions :)

Best shoes ever

So comfortable. Extremely light and giving. So much room for toes. Takes a little time to get used to, but they form to your feet and you eventually won't want to wear anything else. I am on my 3rd pair already. Highly recommended.

The most comfortable footwear I have ever found

Being blessed with wide feet, it was a godsend finding Lems and I now have three different pairs. These Primal 2s have the wide toe-box and zero-drop, plus are incredibly light; which makes them the most comfortable footwear I have for summer (they are meshed material, so if it rains you get wet socks). They work well for running/jogging/exercise and look good out socially. Get some, you won't be disappointed.
