Overview of this review
What sporting the Lems Waterproof Boulder Boot really means
Unlike most trail boots, this Lems hiker does not have a midsole—that stabilizing platform between the cushy footbed and the grippy outsole. With its absence, underfoot flexibility is doubled, and ground feel is enhanced exponentially.
Human skill highlighted
As a barefoot pair, you are given as much maneuverability as possible in the Waterproof Boulder Boot. Yes, freer mobility is yours but in exchange for sturdy support, allowing you to depend on your technique more than on the boot itself. Ultimately, this should not be a cause for concern, considering the type of hiker this offering is.
The intimate construction of the Waterproof Boulder Boot leaves minimal room around the collar for debris to invade. There is also the hiker’s gusseted tongue, which keeps grainy particles, even crushed mulch, from entering the boot's confines.
Nice to know
- The Waterproof Boulder Boot comes with two pairs of abrasion-resistant laces.
- Its first production was launched as a campaign on Kickstarter. The project was fully funded a month after the campaign’s launch!
