Instead of conforming to the shape of the culture, Lems footwear is formed to the foot’s anatomy. Above all else, Lems keeps your sole as the focus, keeping your feet happy and healthy every step of the way. Every Lems shoe design is specifically tailored to the natural shape of the foot, creating a step that has whole-body benefits. Traditional shoes feature a tapered toe box, and a high-rise heel, leading to foot deformity and potentially irreversible damage. The Lems shoe model, however, focuses on the ideal foot strike, creating an ergonomic step throughout your journey.

In 2008, Andrew Rademacher set out to find a shoe that fit the natural shape of the foot. After hours of dissecting big brand shoes and throwing out unnecessary material, Andrew decided it was time to challenge the status quo. After studying the art and science of shoe making, he found that the big brand “Athletic” shoe companies had been building from the outside in. Andrew knew it was time for a shoe that kept the sole at the heart of the mission.
