Finding boots that are ultra-minimalist, featuring a wide toebox, lightweight form, and zero-drop design is more difficult than locating the infamous Sasquatch
but why? Where is the minimalist boot that is the natural shape of the human foot; a boot that brings your feet closer to the earth with a barefoot design; a boot so lightweight that it cuts down on ounces more than this week's fad diet; and a boot that has a wide toebox with more open space than the state of Kansas? Well, guess what, Dorothy? Welcome home!
We here at Lems Shoes believe that you don't need to be some environmentalist who survives on organic granola and berries to know that going natural can have its benefits, which is why we bring you the Boulder Boot - a barefoot boot that has all of the natural features you've been searching for all while promoting healthy foot development, better balance, increased mobility in the feet, legs, and back AND helps to alleviate certain foot ailments such as bunions and hammer toes. If you're ready for a 9.9oz boot (size 43) that can pack down into the smallest of daypacks or carry you on the farthest of Sasquatch searches, then it's time you rock the Boulder.

The most accurate measure is the CMS so use a tape measure and put the heel of your largest foot up against a wall then measure to the tip of your longest toe while standing.
Please ALSO NOTE the cms measurement is designed to allow your arch to drop once tired, and as such is up to 1.5cms shorter than than the actual internal measurement of the footwear.
The INSOLE measurement is the actual measure of the insole which will give you an idea of how much extra space each shoe will have if you follow the recommendations. It may be that you prefer a neater fit so these measurements will allow you to make up your own mind.
