The blue tint overlaying your video makes it difficult for me to get an idea of what the leather on the boots actually looks like in real life.

Barefoot and minimalist shoes are slowly taking over in my life. I"d buy a pair of these leather Lems if they were indeed able to be truly waterproofed - kinda odd that the seams (according to reports I've read/seen) just cant seem to be dressed to make them proofed. If Lems remedies this, I'll be on board.
(And they also gotta ditch that cotton lining, as you mention.)

So good to see you guys doing what you do. Appreciate the insights. I have some barefoot shoes that are wearing well, but sadly are not terribly practical when it comes time to re-sole.

Glad you guys are back. Can you do do a video about the clothing you wear? I like your shirts in particular..thanks!!

These boots look great! I'm in the process of transitioning into exclusively zero-drop and hope to go as minimalist as possible eventually. These look like they'll fit my "hiking" slot!

Nice and welcome back, please do more of those shoes reviews, i am looking for shoes that have a good grip on slippery stones, here in Norway we have a lot of rocks too and a lot of wet days and swamps up in the mountains, so a shoe with a good grip would be perfect. special for people as me that are almost 24/7 out in the wild.

Hey thanks for the review! I can't wear shoes with arch support, they injure my feet. Everything I wear currently is zero drop, but I really needed a good leather boot to tromp through the woods with. I've been waiting for someone I trust to do a good review on these boots. I'm sold now, and will be picking a pair up. Thank you!

Those are some nice boots. I've been looking for a lighter boot than my Redwings for light wear. Glad to see you on the vid. Turtle out😁

I watched your first review on these boots and I liked them but wasn't able to get a pair until now ! I ended up ordering the Timber model like the pair you had on in your first review I like these leather ones in this review but maybe they'll be a little too hot for summer use . Thanks for sharing 👍🏻

I have a pair of Lems shoes. Really love them. They do feel like you are walking barefooted. Thanks for the boot review.

I have the regular boulder boots. They are amazing.

Did not know there were minimalist boots. Thank you!!

I'm a big fan of Belleville Boots minimalist tactical line. They're extra wide at the toebox, zero drop, and have a luggy vibram sole. Did some Adirondack hiking a couple weeks ago and they were fantastic on rocks and slippery surfaces.

Thanks for the review. I see that you’re wearing EU 44’s in this model. How does it compare to your US athletic shoe size? I typically wear a US 11 is Asics and Nike? I’ve fit in EU 44’s in other shoes but the Lems size chart is recommending 45’s to US 11’s.

Hey Krik, have you ever read "Born to Run"? I have a feeling you have, but if not you should definitely check it out. You would enjoy it.
