I've been wearing Boulder Boots almost daily for something like 4 or 5 years now. They've been my go-to solution for a minimalist boot. This is my third pair and I've moved up to the all leather model.

Overall I've been very happy with this boot! I have a few small complaints though as they're not perfect. I know... Nothing is! But if you're looking for a good minimalist boot, you should really look at the Boulder Boot.

The sanest truest review of these boots I've seen. And I've seen hundreds. Thanks ✌️

I used Lems since 3 years ago. Don't you think the sole don't last enough? I use the Primal model as daily basis and i think is not very ecofriendly to buy one pair of boots of this kind every 6 month. Regards from Spain.

In any of the pairs did the sole come off the boot? I’m on fourth pair since June. Lems has helped and replaced but I’m really thinking it’s a lost cause. I’ve tried piling ect to no avail

I have that same problem with my 4th and 5th toes not curling in. My toes end up being the widest point of my foot. This is the first review where someone has spoken about that. I have been hemming and hawing over whether to try them. I f these are some of the best that you have tried, I find that pretty encouraging. Are there any other brands that you would recommend? I tried Xero shoes, but they still didn't have enough room for my 5th toe. And I have tried Altra in the past. They were a great width, but the were too shallow, which made them too tight across the balls of my feet. I returned both brands after trying them on.

Did the leather boulder boot last a year with conditioning and having to coat the leather or did they last that long without you having to do any maintainence?

I wear minimalist duty boots for work but these look good for off duty wear. I can't wear clunky, stiff, heavy boots. These look like they would be great.

Can't really call these a "boot." Cotton lined ? That's troubling, from an outdoor perspective anyway. These seem to be more of a marketing ploy, kind of a fashion trend perhaps. They do look pretty mod. The review is good, appreciate learning about it. When I want real boots I get Red Wings. If I want barefoot shoes I'll get Merrell or Xero. If I want a "look", maybe I'll consider Lems.

Are these good to wear in the rain as is without having to treat them with waterproofing substance?

Dear Dr.Ben. I have bought Lems boulder leather today by internet. I live in a cold city. Today we have -7ºC . My question is: Are the boot really warm? I will use to walk in the city and in my work (officer). Thanks

I bet if you wore merino socks with the boots, your feet would stay warm and dry.

Hi, want to know if it's true to size or if I have to order one size up ?

Do these boots eventually stretch after a while? My toes touch the front of the toe box and I'm wondering if that will eventually subside

Since this guy is using the LEMS affiliate program, i view this review as completely biased as with 99% of Lems reviews, which is a bummer.

Why in the world would you call yourself Dr. Ben when your not a Dr.? You know it takes a large sacrifice of time and studies to become a Dr. right, c'mon man!
