Attention, Primal 2 enthusiasts! Get ready to refresh your footwear game with the all-new Primal 3. Designed with your feedback in mind, this latest iteration maintains many of the signature features of the Primal 2, such as a zero-drop platform and wide toe box, while also introducing exciting enhancements.

The difference is that we developed a new outsole on the Primal 3 with a wider footprint for more ground contact underneath the foot. It has a wider heel and midfoot to distribute your weight more evenly. The Primal 3 still utilizes our signature IBR outsole for a lightweight, flexible feel!

With fit and feel in mind, we've listened to your feedback and made the Primal 3 available in half sizes, because when it comes to comfort, we believe every inch counts!

Speaking of comfort, our new recycled PU insole takes things up a notch. At 4.5mm thick, its breathable materials ensures comfort in every step.

And fear not, loyal fans – while the Primal 3 boasts exciting new features, we've kept the upper consistent with the beloved Primal 2. That's right – the same unbeatable comfort you know and love, now with even more sizing options to ensure the perfect fit for every foot!

ENHANCED OUTSOLE

With its newly redesigned outsole, the Primal 3 features a wider footprint, offering improved weight distribution and stability.

ZERO-DROP

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

FLEXIBLE

Made from our signature IBR outsole, the Primal 3 is an ultra lightweight and flexible option compared to traditional footwear.

    Extremely Comfortable

    Most comfortable shoes I've had to date. This my second pair of lems (first pair was the trailhead) and I won't be switching anytime soon.

    AMAZING!!!

    Years ago I saw a pair of Lems at REI but failed to buy them. They did not last long at REI and I forgot about them, until now!!! I am so glad I remembered them because I recently bought my first pair, the Primal 3, and they are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. What I like most is that they are very breathable. Living in Arizona this feature is very nice during the hot summer months. I would highly recommend Lems and am excited to try some of their other styles.

    Very happy!

    I have several types of zero drop and barefoot shoes, but these are best training shoe for me. I am a 260 pound highland games athlete (think heavy weights and violent movement) and the surface I train on most is crushed AB gravel (think small sharp rocks). These soles (outsoles?) are particularly well suited for my foolishness. I can’t imagine how comfy these might be for a normal human on nice surfaces.
