One more time, hoping for the Primal 2s.
I hope I win !
Boulder Boot looks really interesting. I think that is my favorite.
I'd love the boots !
These would be nice. Crossing fingers for a first win.
Just donated for my 3rd entry.
I upped my support and got two more chances.
OK, this is it.
Sweets or Primal's please. The Boulders and my ankle structure were not a good match. Choices are good.
I'm in for the Boulder Boots! I could use these for work. They look Great!
How can I not enter?
And the lucky winner is...drum roll please...
#34, Bare Lee! Congrats! We will be contacting you shortly.
For everyone else, we will have another LEMS Footwear Giveaway Contest next month.
Haha, seems I win every other contest I enter. But I guess I did have an almost one-in-ten chance here, since i posted five times and there's 54 posts total.
Anyway, I'm having a hard time deciding between the boots and boat shoe. I don't have any minimalist boots, and my wife wants me to get those, but I'm wondering how often I'd actually wear them outside of sledding with the kids. The boat shoes look easy to slip on and off, which is always a key feature for me, plus they're made of leather.
Does anybody want to help me decide, or does anyone have a preference for the review?
you can always "decide" to give them to me.
I have the boat shoes and they are easy to slide on and off.
I have the boat shoes too and they are very comfy.
I went with the Boulder Boots. I figured since the Lems are borderline minimalist, with a 12mm stack height (9mm sole + 3mm insole), I mis' well get the shoe I'll use in winter when I might be willing to sacrifice groundfeel for greater insulation. If the Mariner's sole were more in the 3-6mm range, I would've chosen them, as I'd probably get more use overall out of that sort of shoe.
Still, I wonder how often I'll have the motivation to deal with all those boot laces. That's quite a commitment. And I've been getting by just fine with the Neo Trails as my winter boot for things like sledding with the kids, so it's kind of capricious to get a real boot. But it's free, so what the heck.
