Lems Trailhead Shoe

Hikers are their own off-road vehicles, and their footwear is the equivalent to the burly tires. A proper pair of hiking shoes or boots will go unnoticed on your trip, quietly doing their job while you experience the beautiful scenery around you. The wrong shoes will get your trip, well, off on the wrong foot.  Lems is all about performance while allowing the foot to act naturally.  They make their shoes to take advantage of the foot’s natural mechanical features and designs. A wide toe box allows for the toes to naturally spread out and stabilize the foot, and a low to the ground heel makes for a natural footstrike.  This revised 2.0 pair is an easy pick for the best hiking gear of 2020, and your feet will thank you for choosing them.
