Leming Primal Origins — The Name

Standard

Leming Footwear is a new name for the former Stem Footwear, which had an issue with their trademark and rebranded to Leming.  Do I like the new name?  I’m not sure.  Everyone that I talk to hates the new name.  But that’s not the important thing.  The important thing is whether you like (or love) the shoes.  Let’s start over with the question.  Do you like Leming Footwear?  Everyone I have spoken with hates the name, but LOVES the shoes!  Including me.  I LOVE the shoes, and I’m indifferent about the name.  Wasn’t it Shakespeare who said, “What’s in a name?  That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” May Shakespeare had a chance to envision wearing Leming Primal Origins when he wrote Romeo and Juliet?

What makes these shoes so special?  Leming shoes have an air-injected sole which is unique in the industry — they are super light and flexible. The result is that your feet feel liberated, instead of confined in a rigid chamber like regular shoes.  Your feet are allowed to express themselves, and move naturally as they would if you were barefoot.

I just love my new Leming Primal Origins.

Stem Footwear Primal Origins

Standard

I had a conversation with Stem Footwear a few days ago, and they have announced a recent re-branding project with their minimalist line of shoes. Many of us see these shoes as the perfect go-to casual shoe for walking, hanging out at the office, on the road, etc. I even read a report somewhere online that they are the perfect shoe for skateboarding. I don’t know about that, but I know that I love my Primal Origins.

When Stem Footwear first started producing shoes in August 2011, they had 3 styles: Survival Origins, Natural Origins and Primal Origins. The only difference between the 3 styles was the color. Effective March 1st, the name will be changed to Primal Origins for all of this style minimalist casual shoe. In addition, they will be available in Black so that they will be more appropriate to wear in the office for business casual wear. Effective March 1st, 2012, Primal Origins will be available in the following colors:

  • Black
  • Earth Brown
  • Slate Gray
  • Frost Gray (Women’s only)
  • Moss Green

The Survivor Origins in Earth Brown were a huge hit when they were released in August 2011, and they sold out quickly in all retail shops and were backordered from the manufacturer. I think the Primal Origins in Black will also sell out quickly. Don’t wait too long to order these once they become available!
