I reviewed the original LEMs Nine2Five almost 4 years ago and have put in over a few hundred miles on them since then. I’ve worn the LEMs Nine2Five for over 8 hours for trade conferences or for work and decided to take it on my latest trip to Europe because of the changing weather and their rough cobblestone streets…

For two solid weeks, I’ve worn the LEMs Nine2Five through hot 100+ degrees Fahrenheit in Rome and in rainy Amsterdam & Brussels. Of course, being a gadget guy, I’ve quantified my trip as I was also field testing a travel cloud app I’ve developed with my summer intern, a sophomore Data Science major from the University of San Francisco. Over 90 miles walking alone…

The slight cushioning on the Nine2Five is perfect for the cobblestone streets in Rome, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Brussels. And when it rains, the basic water proofing from using my Otterwax Leather Kit (available on LEMs website) on the LEMs Nine2Five keeps my feet warm and dry. With heavy rains, they would get slightly wet but within minutes, the Nine2Five would be dry when I get indoors (lunch, dinner) or back at the hotel.

You would think the hot sun in Rome will make your feet sweat – but fear not. Wearing the LEMs Nine2Five sockless, I have dry and cool feet – had to use sunscreen, sunglasses, and running cap though…

With all that walking, my feet never got sore, never had any hot spots or blisters. Happy feet indeed. And perfect for the cobblestone surfaces of Europe and airplanes. The best travel minimalist shoe ever…

Not just for the office anymore – take it around the world and travel with confidence and pride! Great looking shoes for those dinners where you need to wear a jacket too 🙂
