One of our favorite new boots this winter season is the Chelsea Boot from Lems. Built on the same wide last as the Primal Zen, the Chelsea Boot is foot-shaped with an anatomical toe box that should fit Correct Toes for most. This boot is zero-drop (no heel elevation) with a slight but flexible toe spring. And while the Lems Chelsea is more flexible than most boots, it’s a little more stable when compared to other barefoot, minimalist, and natural footwear. The11 mm stack height balances foot protection and sturdiness with proprioception and ground feel, making this a great boot for people used to more supportive footwear that are transitioning towards more natural shoes.
The full-grain oiled leather upper has a fully waterproof membrane to keep your feet dry in wet, wintry conditions. Lems Chelsea Boot also comes in a suede version without the waterproof membrane.
