Lems Men's Trailhead - Sequoia
The Lems Mountain Sneaker is our take on a minimalist hiking shoe equipped for any trail, trek or urban travel adventure. With its wide toe box, minimal heel drop, and lightweight design, it’s sure to keep pushing your boundaries. Whether you’re climbing a 14er, going on a bike and brew tour, or even backpacking around the world, the Trailhead will be sure to take you far away from the ordinary. Designed for the trail but styled for the city streets, this 100% vegan hiking shoe will be the answer for your every move.
NATURAL SHAPE TOE BOX
We’ve re-designed the original Lems Last for a more active fit. This new sneaker features a natural-shaped toe box, paired with a slim heel fit.
The upper is made of durable materials that stand up to the abuses of trails, and also daily wear and tear.
LOW HEEL DROP
With 4mm of drop, compared to the traditional 12mm of drop, the Trailhead naturally decreases heel-striking for a more natural gait and healthier posture.
RETRO SNEAKER STYLING
We wanted a shoe that can perform both on the trails AND look great around town – so we took inspiration from 90’s running sneakers.
Similar to the Danner Jag, this is one of the only 2 pairs of shoes I own. These are my “work shoes” that I wear around the shop. Being on my feet on our hard concrete floors for 8+ hours, these shoes literally save my back. They are pretty close to a zero-drop shoe meaning that there isn’t much arch to them and are similar to the Vibram 5 Finger shoes from a few years back. There is a whole bunch of science behind this “zero-drop style” but just know if you have a low arch, you’ll love these. They are rugged enough that I can hop on a quick trail after work or wear them for yard work without worrying about them taking a beating. As close to an everyday wear pair of shoes that I have.
