-The Lems Boulder Boot is an ideal gear for individuals who want to save space and weight during their outdoor adventures. Its hard-wearing upper uses nubuck and 1200 denier nylon. The black colorway of this boot (men's and women's) is vegan-friendly.
-A 1 mm PU strobel insole board and 3 mm PU insole render underfoot support. The injection-blown rubber compound used in the outsole grants a minimal amount of cushioning while providing ground adherence.
The Lems Boulder Boot is a relatively true-to-size hiker that caters to men and women. Fit customization is permitted by the boot's lace-up closure.
This product is shaped using Lems trademarked Natural-Shape last. It mirrors the shape of the human foot; thus, it offers a wide toe box for better balance and all-day comfort.
This above-the-ankle lightweight hiker comes with the air-injected 9 mm LemsRubber outsole. It provides grip on virtually all types of terrain. This flexible sole offers maximum ground feel that grants surefootedness, especially over rugged surfaces.
The Lems Boulder Boot has an insole board made of 1 mm PU strobel lined with fabric on top for underfoot rigidity. Cradling the foot is a 3 mm removable PU insole that provides comfort and support. This zero-drop hiker places the foot flat on the ground that helps correct posture and encourages a midfoot strike.
The Boulder Boot from Lems uses a durable combo of leather trim and 1200 denier nylon for its upper. Internal comfort is enhanced by a lining made of 100% cotton. For fit management, a round lace passes through seven pairs of punched metal eyelets. A heel tab assists in on and off.
