  • Brandon Olson

    So looking forward to these!

  • Johnny

    Looks great!

  • smwinn7

    Looks like a great idea

  • Samantha Knowlton

    Very excited!

  • Denis Pankov

    Wow, exactly what I’ve been waiting for!

  • Reni

    This is just what I need! I basically live in my Xero sandals, but now that the weather has turned cold I need something with a little coverage and after discovering Xero I HATE all the regular shoes I tried so far… this is perfect!

  • DEVIN

    just got my first pair of xero shoes this summer and love them.

  • Lisa

    I definitely need something to replace my tattered Merrell’s. Where is sizing info? Will these be on Amazon too? Looking forward to trying them.

  • Jon

    While I almost exclusively wear my Z-Treks or Z-Trails, I have a pair of NB Minimus Zero Gloves for when I have to wear closed toed shoes or when it is cold. They are not durable at all and I’m due for a replacement. Perfect timing on the Hana’s.

  • Raymond Hawkins

    I got my first xero shoes this summer, and they’ve been my favorite shoes ever by SOOO far. Love them! Super excited about these as a possibility for the winter when sandals get kinda cold.

  • Corry Lehmann

    They look great & I bet they are incredibly comfy!

  • Seth Longacre

    Ooh, aaah. Wow, what genius. I sooo cannot wait to feel these on my feet.

  • Josh Hall

    Looks great – can’t wait to pick up a pair.

  • JVF

    I really don’t think I can express how excited I am about these! I wear Sanuks to work and as soon as I get in my house they come off and my Z-Treks or Z-Trails go on. Heck, half the time I carry the Sanuks home because I just go barefoot before I even get out the door at work. I’ve been needing to replace my work shoes because they have gotten very ragged looking but I just could not get myself to order new ones once I heard Xero was coming out with a shoe I could wear to work. Thank you Steven, Leena, and everyone else at Xero who worked to bring these to us!

    If they are as good as the sandals, I can’t wait to get a pair!

  • Robert Wright

    Had no idea this was in the work, very excited.

  • Serina Weber Toman

    These look great!

  • Brandon

    If these are as awesome as the sandals, I can’t wait!

  • Tim SondraSue Scholl

    We have been wearing the Amuri Cloud since they were available, we love them and everyone asks where we got them. Lightweight in the Tampa heat is key for fun dog walking…woof woof!

  • Dan Gador

    My moose costume got replaced by a spiderman costume. I can no longer run with the string between the fingers because the outfit has socks, so I need a zero shoe https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/85931c71248a318d3116bec8bf92bd0218e2094870a03a1d9eb257af17 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/85931c71248a318d3116bec8bf92bd0218e2094870a03a1d9eb257af17429b28.jpg 429b28.jpg

    Rad looking shoe, 10/10 would wear on my feet.

  • Casey Later

    So excited for actual minimal shoes. Snow was the only thing holding me back from year long wearing Xeroshoes. Bring it on!

  • Lea Ann Overton

    Winter is coming and I’m struggling with having to wear an enclosed shoe. I need these!

  • TimRobbins

    If there is a fully black or grey option (without the orange), this will be a daily work shoe.

    • Check out the video, above… it shows the color combinations we’ll have.

    • Ben Semancik

      Agreed, an all black option will be a daily work shoe. I’ve contacted Minnetonka and Vibram so far about making an all black shoe or moccasin I can wear to work. I might get these instead! Probably whoever comes out with something I like first. We’ll see

      • Brian Oney

        If you are desperate, have a look at the vivobarefoot stuff. It’s a bit of a parallel/copy (“Sense the world”). Their Sandals are a joke but their shoes are business ready. Still looking forward to a pair of true barefoot Xero “shoes”.

    • I like the color combinations that are planned, but in future models I solid color would be helpful for much workplace wear.

  • Zachary Bergen

    Given my experience hammering the crap out of my Z-Trails over the Colorado spring/summer I have come to trust the quality of Xero shoes. I look forward to wearing the Hana’s when it is too scary for people to see barefeet (like the office). I know I’ll be able to wear them just about anywhere including bopping around Boulder and at work. I should point out that there are plenty of competitors yet the attention to detail of Xero shoes are above the rest. It’s almost as if they are intended to actually be worn on real feet unlike other shoe companies that want to perpetuate the podiatrist profession.

    Are there going to be youth sizes?

  • Missy Hart

    Looks like I could conquer the world in those puppies!! ????

  • Caleb

    These look comfy for casual wear. They might even work for hiking. Would love to try them out on the PCT someday.

    How much will they cost?

  • Scott Becker

    Living in northern Germany (with a lot of cold and rain for large parts of the year), having a closed barefoot shoe with the feel of your sandles will be fantastic! And the style instantly appealed to me. Count me in as a buyer!

    I wear only barefoot shoes and these look amazing!! I look forward to buying a pair!!

  • Mike Burns

    These look great. I have a pair of the z-trek, but I can’t wear those to work because they don’t allow sandals anymore, but these are covered and so now I can wear them to work since they are technically shoes. Hooray!!!

  • Jessica Stepp

    So excited for these shoes! I live in a seasonally rainy climate, and I wonder how they will hold up In the rain.

  • John

    Got my Z-trek this year and ran an 8K in them the next day. Love, love, love these. Super excited to have something closed toed, as I work in a chemical lab. Strangely there’s policy against sandals.

  • Traviskonold

    I really love the sandals. I’ve worn them since April and went to put shoes on and realized the toe box is much tighter after wearing sandals for so long. I really want to try these shoes out.

  • Jonathan Pritchard

    Can’t wait for these to drop!

    These are just what I’ve been looking for…!
    The Z-trails have gotten me everywhere I needed to go in warm weather, but now I’m looking for a bit more coverage. I would love to try these out!

  • unci narynin

    I’m always barefoot and finding shoes that aren’t hurting my feet is quite a task, so I’m quite curious and I make this a challenge for XeroShoes – I actually like the style, will these shoes be pleasant to wear to one who is used to wearing no shoes, but sometimes has to because of expectations or to add a layer of insulation in winter? I’m truly curious so I’d love to try (by the way I’m size 47 so make sure to produce them large enough).

  • Kaitlyn

    I have been waiting for this for so long! I work in a hospital lab and have to have closed toe shoes. So far I haven’t had a lot of options that I actually like to wear. I’m so excited for this shoe! I already own 10 pairs of the sandals and am quite sure I’m going to end up getting more than one pair of these. 🙂

    Can’t wait to try them out! Been contemplating my winter shoe options and am so glad I found out about these before making a purchase I’d regret! I have practically lived in my DIY xero shoes since getting them a couple months ago and am on my way to recovering from a lifetime of fallen arches from big shoes! Didn’t want to reverse my progress by having to wear conventional shoes this winter. Perfect timing Xero Shoes!

    So cute!!!! I can’t wait!

  • Max Salichon

    Awesome!!! Been using the Z-Trail for a while and they have been great. Walking around, running, hiking, water sports, they are super comfortable in all situations. The Hana will have the advantages of the Z-Trail built into a shoe for all those situations when a shoe works better than sandals. Can’t wait to get it.

So happy to see these!!

    Pumped to have a casual, minimalistic shoe!!

  • Wes Hardee

    Was very sad to put my Xero sandals away recently now the summer is over and it’s chilblain season again … so I’m really pleased to see there is a new option for cooler days. Hoping they’re gonna be nice and wide, for my gnomey feet….. Will they be available in the UK?

    Been waiting for a replacement for my old Altra Adams; this looks to fill that need. Hopefully, even better since the Z-trails were so great.

  • Hilary Starke

    I need these shoes!

  • Joshua Pelletier

    I have been searching for several months trying to find a shoe that is just simple and made to work with a foot. So many other brands try and add traction or cushion or something unnatural. This will finally be a barefoot shoe I can wear to work at the office and ditch heels forever!

    So excited for these. Thanks for doing what you do and making awesome footwear! Just ordered a new pair of sandals as well for my upcoming vacation. Love!

  • Dan C

    These look sweet.

  • Daniel G

    Got a pair of Sandals (the Z-Trek – and they are utterly amazing…. ). bought them as a pair of light weight compact travel sandals to put in my backpack… have served me well… and am looking forward to try the hana.

  • Michele Z

    In New York City,
    where glass is flinging
    snow is creeping
    and dogs are peeing
    spit and grit
    my Xero Treks
    protect yet let
    me feel all of it
    now, pavement’s cooling
    and I am drooling
    for fancy new
    Hana’s fueling
    this simple plea
    to hopefully
    make one of the three winners me!

  • Can’t wait to try these! My two previous Xero models have been my favorite shoes ever….for running and just wearing around. These Hanas are nice-looking.

  • Lisa

    I would love to try these! Just finally able to start running, because I finally found some minimalist shoes. All the padding and support was causing the pain I had! I would love to try minimalist shoes (that aren’t sneakers or sandals!)

  • Todd Burnside

    Excellent news for the colder months and those few situations where my other Xero shoes are not appropriate. I hope the lacing system works well for a wide forefoot and narrow heel…

  • Aubrey

    Love, love the new design! Can’t wait to try them out. My other pair of favorite, canvas, close to barefoot shoes are worn through the bottom after 8years…looking forward to putting these through the same!!

  • Amanda Lauer

    We got to see these shoes up close when we met with Steven at the Xero Shoes office in Boulder last month. Cannot wait to get ours! They are so comfortable!

  • Lenora Oftedahl

    Yes, TimRobbins, fully black would be awesome to wear for work. Please, all black? My feet ache so badly after working a 5 hour shift on my feet with shoes on. I go home and take off my shoes for instant relief. I need these!!

    • Pablo Honey

      I thought the same. Why do these shoes need flashy or high contrasting colors. Monochromatic with optional high contrasting laces would appeal to more and be more versatile.

      • I’m not sure these qualify as “flashy.” The Brown and Sand are pretty monochromatic.

        • Claire

          I don’t know Pablo Honey but I agree. Trust us, they do qualify as flashy in office terms. The sand bits scream casual and stand out a mile; I could never get away with wearing these for work! We all love your shoes. They are the most comfortable and designed with so much care. But please don’t be too attached to mixing up colours. I live in a hot country and can wear monochromatic sandals to work but still couldn’t buy a suitable pair of Amuri Clouds because there wasn’t an all black option. The black/grey and black/mocha are not suitable colour mixes for office wear. Please get with this before someone else does…I think enough people must have mentioned this to you… Regardless, we love what you do! And thanks for the new casual shoes! I’m just hoping by next winter you’ll have some bootees that are suitable to wear with smart trousers for work 🙂 I get back and hip problems every time is switch from flats to heels.

          • Brian Oney

            Hey Claire,
            back problems suck. Check out vivobarefoot shoes until there are some suitable women’s Xeros. They do good stuff too, and probably have what you would need. Sorry Steven – cant wait for business casual Xeros.
            Cheers

      • Kate Neilson

        Another vote for an all black option.

      • Riordan Hanly

        I second that – if I wind up buying a pair, the color won’t be a deal breaker given the current options, but a black(or another dark color) option with out strong contrast would be nice.

      • Brian Oney

        yup. This not quite a business casual shoe. All black please. The nice thing about Xeros is that I am prompted to throw “shoes” away. This would be another nice opportunity to minimize the crap. All black please :).

    • gulfbreeze

      All black please!

    • wrjohnson45

      Carefully use a black magic marker to cover the rust colored straps. That should be close to permanent. You can always touch up. Used to do that with shoes that had emblems I didn’t care for.

  • Wayne Whiting

    Why do I need these? My old Xero’s have plenty of miles left!

  • Vanessa

    Did you have any female tester; if so, were can I find those reviews? I don’t want to wait until Spring to get these and don’t mind buy a male pair if the fit is right.

    • We had a few… the video reviews are having a problem at the moment… once they’re back up you’ll hear from a few women.

    • NormDeplume720

      I’m a female tester of these shoes. I have pretty narrow/low volume feet, but since I have been wearing mine with wool socks, I find them to fit really well. What specifically would you like to know?

      • Vanessa

        How do they fit without the wool socks?

      • Vanessa

        Do you think you’d be able to run and workout in these without the wool socks? I also have a narrow foot and would love to buy a pair but worry they maybe too wide and that my foot would slide around.

  • James Simmons

    So excited for a conventional looking shoe with the minimalist feel…it’s about time.

  • Heather Ramsay-Acosta

    Can’t wait!

  • Ben Tolton

    Xero shoes for president! They can lower taxes, eliminate crime, give a pony to every citizen, and put an end to seasonal allergies.

  • John

    They look very comfortable.

  • Jean Marie

    I love your sandals but am sooo excited about the new Hana for harsh Wisconsin winters!!

  • Tabitha

    ? Love these shoes! Can’t wait to print out the sizing to make sure they will work for me ? If not my boyfriend will benefit. Love the consciousness of these shoes just awesome!

  • Jeremy Elder

    This looks so amazing. If they are as durable as my Z-Treks I’ll be wearing them for years!

  • Eirene

    These look absolutely amazing! I’ve really wanted another barefoot close-toed option, especially because I have to wear close-toed shoes at the Rec center at college.

  • wrjohnson45

    I need these puppies when the ice and snow just around the corner in NE WI. My Z’s are approaching 4 million steps! Not that I don’t have additional pairs including: invisible, feel trues, vibrams and Z Trails… I want/need these.

  • Denise Skidmore

    Do you have sizing templates for this shoe the way you do for the other models at https://xeroshoes.com/venturefit/ ? Is there any hope of these fitting unusual foot shapes? (I have long fourth and fifth toes, I’ve never gotten a good fit without DIY.)

  • John Patrick Riley

    Looks good. A basic black model would work for clerical casual.

  • Pamela Thedos

    Are you kidding!?! I’ve been wondering what I can do to continue wearing Xero Shoes once this Colorado weather turns cold. (I have both the Trek and the Trail Shoes, which I’ve worn one or the other of, every day since I got them.) I haven’t mastered the Wim Hof Method of being barefoot in snow so I’ll need some closed-in shoes! It would make my fall/winter to win a pair of Hana Shoes! Thanks for the opportunity! I hope your shoulder is healing well, Steve!

  • Technically , they’re a casual shoe… but I can’t control what you do in them 😉

    • wrjohnson45

      Oh, you wouldn’t object to running in them, Steven?

  • That’s one of our favorite things — natural fit without an orthopedic or clownish look 😉

  • John Reynolds

    These look awesome, and knowing the brand I bet they feel amazing. I would put some serious miles on these on the trail with my son strapped to my back. Getting out into the world and experiencing what Colorado, our home town, has to offer while feeling the world around me. That is the key to happiness!

    Very cool. After having had my clouds for about 6 months (and literally living in them when not at work) this looks like a great option now that the weather is getting colder. I get that this is a new product, but am hoping that in the future there are some more color options. If you had black on black, I could absolutely get away with wearing these at work.

  • Steve Bryant

    What? Yes! Xeros for the lab! For the flight lab! “You can’t be here in those, Mr. Open-toed Minimalist Man.” Oh yes I can.

  • johnboston

    I can’t wait! Love my sandals and yearn for something to wear at the office.

    • wrjohnson45

      If the women wear sandals or open toed shoes, take the leap! I have people staring at me running in my sandals, amazing. And most of them are wearing sandals themselves.

  • Nanda van Druenen

    These look so comfy!
    I don’t know if the male version will fit my feet. But hey, my guy has his birthday coming up and I now know what he would like to get as present!

  • Laura Gonyaw

    I wear my current Xero’s everywhere – even when I attend court as part of my job. I love the “shoes” (I think of them as sole protectors), have gotten numerous people to purchase them & I am always up for any new design you have. Good products with amazing comfort.

  • Andrew Oldner

    I’d like to try these as well, I really do not like most shoes.

  • Brian Fitzgerald

    This is exciting! I’ve been holding out on buying new shoes for a few months in anticipation of this 🙂

  • Bryce Wilson

    I’m curious. Just started wearing my Z-Treks and pleased so far!

  • Timmy

    They look rad!

  • Michael Choong

    Would love a pair to bring to Nepal with me in November!

  • EvanRavitz

    I’ve been going barefoot when practical since 1964 when I read about Sherpas in National Geographic. I’ve been wearing Raramuri-style sandals since 1985 when I first went backpacking in Copper Canyon. And I’ve been wearing Xero shoes since I met Steve Saschen at his home in Boulder about 2010. My feet grew wider, stronger and happier as a result of all this. And it probably helped me when I was Evan from Heaven the not-so-tight-rope artist for 20 years. Now that I’m older and getting grayer a little shoe protection would help.

  • Erik Jose-Valentino Garcia

    Can’t wait to see what they can do. I love my other xeros!!

  • So. Cool!

    Nearly every shoe like the Hana from other manufacturers are ugly, expensive, and/or non-vegan, and the Hana finally solves ALL of those problems.

  • Nikki L’Hommedieu

    So excited!

  • Sam Slosman

    As a trainer/Spartan coach I have to wear shoes. I can’t wait to try these I love zero drop. The lightest the better. I hope they are tough enough to hold up to my daily activity.

  • Christina Metzgar

    These shoes are absolutely perfect for me! I am on my feet 24/7, vegan and love this look. Its perfect for my trip moving cross country to colorado! I will be hiking mountains and doing yoga outdoors. I dont currently own any good outdoors shoes or can afford anything great. If i could win these i would be so grateful and use it as my everyday shoes:,)

  • Emily Benson

    I was just telling my husband that I need to decide how stubborn I am going to be this winter. Last winter I refused to wear anything but my pair of z-treks (“fashionably” wearing socks with them on cold days) and I was trying to decide whether or not to do the same this winter. So far I have gotten away with wearing them to work, but that may quickly change if I start wearing socks with them. I am excited that I won’t have to make that decision anymore and can wear the new ipari hana!

  • Sarah Steele

    I can’t wait to buy these for my husband!!

  • Vincent Stoops

    Outstanding! Been waiting for the full shoe release! Can’t wait for a pair of Hanas!

  • delicatefade

    These look like my next pair of shoes!

  • Pål

    Ok,stop making awesome footwear…my wallet can’t take it !1….:D

    kidding aside,go you! 😀

  • Nan Palmer

    This looks great! Can’t wait to check it out.

  • ethwc

    I am so pleased with my Xero sandals that I view advent of a closed shoe with some trepidation. I love having my toes free and not squeezed together. On the other hand, I trust Xero to continue providing me with comfort so will undoubtably buy my fifth model from Xero. Now, if only some would wear out, I could rebuy one of the earlier models. Another advantage is that I will be able to wear these in the Y where they do not allow open toed shoes.

  • RaDragon

    Excited for this, but would love to see other colors!

  • DanW

    I’ve used my Xeros for hiking, biking, kayaking, etc….. they are always very comfortable and functional. I wear the Ztreks on a daily basis. The one issue I’ve had is the attachment point for the strap has broken twice. But here’s the great thing, Xero has replaced it twice promptly and redesigned the shoe to resolve the issue. I’d say that pretty amazing customer focus. So, I’ve become a fan. I can’t wait to try the hana!

  • Adolfo Neto (UTFPR)

    This is great. I hope I can buy one. I wish all the success.

  • Tim

    I have two pairs of Xero Sandals and love them. Best shoes ever. Fingers crossed for some luck on the Ipari Hands!

  • Dan C

    This will be my daily work shoe… can’t wait

  • Alexa12364

    Thank you so much for making all of your shoes vegan! I’m excited to try these 🙂

  • Christina Perry

    I was just in the process of messaging you this morning about when the new shoes would be released, when all of the sudden, the announcement comes in my email! Very much looking forward to trying these!

  • Cory Shetler

    I bought a pair of Xero sandals for my wife for her birthday. She absolutely loves them. If I were to win a pair they would go to her because she carries our family on her back everyday and needs an awesome pair of shoes to do it!!

    • wrjohnson45

      Cory, take the leap yourself. You are macho with sandals. They are catching on!

  • JC S

    Wow, these are coming out at a perfect time for me! With winter coming I’ve been dreading the thought of shoving my feet back into regular shoes or even boots. After living in my xero shoes all spring and summer…and fall so far, my toes flinch at the thought of restricted freedom. Still, I’ve been unsure of my determination to hard-core my way through drifting snow…though one never knows until one tries. Ipari Hana, I think you may be the answer to my delima!

    • wrjohnson45

      You me, too. Hate shoes and these new footies are the answer for winter for me… well, I will wear socks under the Z”s.

  • JC S

    Really liking the over all look of these.

  • Theresa B.

    I’m an avid fan of my Xero sandals and get questions like “What are those things?” all the time, lol. So let me tell you; what can I do in my Xero sandals – anything! What will I be able to do with my new Hana shoes – even more!

  • Chase Hawkins

    How awesome! I cannot wait to try these babies out!

  • Cannot wait to try these!!!

  • Adam Schainblatt

    Xero sandals are my favorite thing to wear. Period. I think I will love these too.

  • Brian Sullivan

    My new shoes!

  • Tyler

    These are by far the coolest yet! I would literally replace my usual daily zero drop shoes for these in an instant! Cant wait!!!

  • Kristoffer Jägestedt

    Yes! Finally a real shoe, and it looks awesome!

  • Yehuda Mansell

    *gestures with hand across chest* these are the shoes you are looking for…

  • Cindy Pollock

    Love the sandals so can’t wait to try out a pair of these new shoes!

  • thewrightmom7

    These would replace my Toms as my go-to casual shoe 🙂

  • Peka Peka

    I know these are a “men’s” shoe (can’t wait for the women’s!) but they still rock! My DIY Xeros are my “go-to” shoe but I’m always getting in trouble on my kids field trips for not having closed toe shoes. 😛
    These would solve that for me for sure!
    Plus, the low profile look will still look great with all my yoga gear and even bikinis! And fit in my bag without being too bulky.
    Totally sold guys!! Can’t wait to get a pair!

  • FuLL eFFekT1

    CAN’T FREAKIN’ WAIT!! They look grrrreat!!! (Way better looks than my Feelmax Osma 2’s!!!)

  • Robbo

    So looking forward to these shoes!

  • Ryan Banfield

    Another zero drop shoe option! Thank you!

  • Christian Eggert

    I was just thinking yesterday, what am I going to do when I go to a place that requires close toed shoes? #XeroTanLines #XeroShoes4Life

  • Bob Campbell

    I like them! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for and the price looks great!

  • broncomark

    These look great, I have had skin cancer, so really wanted a covered shoe! thank you!!

  • Gamma8gear

    The shoes look great. Very stylish

  • craighouchin

    These look fantastic. Love the black and orange. They could easily become my daily shoe.

  • Jenau Tsang

    Love these shoes

  • ElkeNeher

    Can’t wait to try them out. 🙂

  • jimbobgeorgejohn

    Count me in!

  • Dave Yoss

    Cool! These look pretty snazzy!

  • thorvando

    I love my Umara-Z Trails, and I can’t wait to get these for the winter!

  • Blake White

    I love wearing my Amuri Ventures around as much as I can but the wife frowns on them if we go somewhere nice for dinner. The Hana is just what we have been waiting for.

  • Susan

    I really want to win a pair of these shoes!!!! When I saw them, I just knew they were the shoe for me, and let me tell you why: I used to run, and it was great. I didn’t run competitively. Rather, I ran as a way of taking care of myself and to deal with stress. However, I don’t run anymore because of a dysfunction that I developed due to having run with a misalignment which was surely aggravated by running in traditional running shoes. I am convinced that, in order to be able to return to running, I will need a great pair of shoes that will promote proper alignment and form. I know that these shoes would fit (pun intended) the bill for me, and enable me to go back to an activity that is so beneficial to me. I also like the fact that they are so stylish!

  • Audrey Linn

    You guys need to stop coming out with cool shoes, I’m gonna go broke!
    [actually please don’t, these look amazing]

    • wrjohnson45

      Audrey, the price and wearablitliy, you can’t go broke with these unless you do like do, buy more than I will wear out in the rest of my life. I have at least 3+ Milion steps on my Amura-Z’s, and that is on my first pair, I have another ready for action once I triple my steps and wear through the bottoms, if that is even possible.

  • Michael Hopke

    Just curious, since you said they are cloth/microfiber, do they have any water resistance? I love them either way, but I wanted to check! =)

    • Not really.

      • Michael Hopke

        Ok, thanks! (if you can answer) do you have any plans to release water resistant styles/pairs? My shoes get like 80% of their use in winter / wet weather.

  • Mark Gladman

    Wow! Just wow!! Another Xero to add to the stable! Keep on rockin’ Steven and Lena!!

  • Jason Shivers

    I have had some New Balance Minimus shoes for about a year and a half. I think these new Hana’s are what I was looking for all along. I’ll wear them for work too!

  • Joseph Mitchell

    Aloha! I love xero shoes for a long time! And now the ipari Hana shoe! Oh my! My wife and I live on Maui! There are so many trails to explore and now with the hanas we know where we want to explore on Maui! Wahooo!!!

  • Not yet.

  • Colin Lewis

    How wide (in inches or centimeters) is the forefoot/toe box?

  • Steph

    I am a woman with a narrow foot so I may wait till spring to buy, but I’m excited about these new shoes.

  • Matthias A

    great

  • Brian Chapman

    Really excited about these!

  • KarKid

    Wow, finally a shoe with the quality of the Umara-Z Trails I own. Will be great with socks in the cooler winter months.

  • PK

    Can’t wait to get a pair of these down under. Love the colours, love the style. I’ll be hoofing it through China in November so with luck will be doing it in style in my Hanas.

  • Jessimer

    Woohoo! I really love the Hana design. Just in time for cooler weather, yeah I know, I am just too chilly with my paws out in the fall and winter.

  • Hope Bartel

    I love my xero huaraches so I’m very excited to see a shoe from y’all! Would you consider making a future version with lining made of cotton (or another natural fiber) instead of microfiber? My sweat makes polyester stink to high heaven but I love going sockless.

  • Sondra Miller

    Teach those work folks to tell me my shoes aren’t professional enough *grumble* ? This is the most exciting thing ever. My 4mm homemade xeroes are my FAVORITE shoe. I want that at work!!!

  • Brian Adler

    I am SO psyched about these shoes. I’ve been waiting for these ever since you showed me the early prototype!!!!

  • Jason Rose

    would love to get these dirty on the trails!

  • JlROD

    Amazing, what i was expecting for!!! you’ve just read my mind! I want this!

  • benjy rose

    Yes. Yes yes. All of the yes. Thank you for making these. Looking forward to wearing them.

  • senelly

    All I can say is BRING IT!

  • Garnet Morgan

    Sweet! I love my cloud sandals, but I stop wearing them in the cold and wet part of the year and have been wishing for a closed toe version. Thanks Steven and Lena!

  • Nurit Anati

    These are THE shoes I’ve been waiting for half my life (the other half doesn’t count). Know when you buy your kid those cute shoes and she wouldn’t take them off when she goes to bed? well, don’t tell anybody but I can totally see myself sleeping in them

  • MtnGeode

    Love my Umaras, looking forward to something I can wear in this CO winter!

  • SebM

    Is the toebox wide enough to wear while using correct toes? Very happy to see you come out with a shoe and looking forward to other designs as well!

  • Jon Poupko

    finally I can wear Xeros to work

  • Temcat

    Wow! those look real nice–I would like them I am sure!

  • Ryan McGeachy

    Awesome that these are finally available. I can’t wait to get a couple of pairs. Can you give us any details as to how the upper is attached to the sole? With my previous zero drop shoes this seems to be the weak point, and if my sandals are any indication I would expect these to last a long time!!!

  • Tina F

    I have a pair of minimal shoes but due to crazy colours cannot wear them to work. I am excited to get a pair of these awesome shoes to wear at work and in the snowy, cold winters.

  • Nicole

    I have been wanting a pair of shoes to cover and protect the tops of my feet for colder weather, but with the barefoot comfort of my Xero shoes soles. I looked into trying to make my own, purchasing some xero soles, but I hadn’t felt confident enough to tackle the project. Now Xero shoes has done it for me!

  • blondiechell

    I am soooo stoked about this new shoe!!!

  • CN Romaine

    are we there?

  • nishanthi siva

    Looks like a shoe should – nice to see more anatomically-shaped shoes entering the market.

  • Wendi Lubinus

    Waiting for the boots? Anything coming like that? Have to wear them for work and currently wearing Vivobare trackers just because xero doesn’t have any options yet :). Waterproof boots for the Pacific Northwest hint hint!

  • Travis Bruno

    What is the tightness like on the top of the heel? Looks like the strap runs to tighten from there, but I often get blisters… Hope it’s not too tight!

  • Kate

    This will be a great addition to my winter shoe collection since I have wide feet and can wear men’s shoes. I wear my Xero sandals all summer but need something warm for winter. Can’t wait to try them out.

  • Just Curious

    Now all you need to do is add a heel and some arch support! 🙂

  • demivalka

    You all read my mind. As the weather turned cooler last week I longed for a pair of xero shoes that covered my whole foot.

  • Kristin Piljay

    These look awesome. Can’t wait to check them out!

  • Teresa Morgan-Kenney Young

    So excited to get a pair of these!!

  • Elden McD

    These look so much more stylish, minimal and durable than the competitor options I’ve been stuck with!

  • Margaret

    Wow, I’ve been waiting years for good barefoot shoes that I can wear to work, where I spend most of my time. The Vivo’s I’ve tried don’t breath well at all, and the Merrells don’t seem to have a very natural foot shape. I’m so glad the Hana is available in a neutral color like beige that will blend in and not draw attention when in a slightly more formal setting like an office.

  • Adrian Krebs

    They look really great. I wanted to buy some of the other models before but didn’t make it. This time you got me!

  • Maria Cusano

    Nice! I love my Z-Trails sooooo much that I was worried what to do for winter (it’s starting to get chilly here in New York). This looks like the perfect solution! And I won’t have to change when I get to work 😉

  • Thaum

    Any plans for a toe version?

  • Jayson

    Can’t wait to get a pair

  • Jessica Bergesen

    Ahhh! So excited about this new shoe!! I wore my trek sandals all summer and was so sad I have to put them away during winter! I’m so grateful for a new option!

  • Michelle Blankas

    this looks pretty sweet, ive been looking for another pair of closed barefoot shoes

  • Janet Cammarata

    I wore my z strap sandals every day since I bought them this spring. When it started getting cold I didn’t know what I would do. My kids said I could not wear them (around them) with big socks, I thought about attaching some leather to create boots (if you do it I’ll buy them) AND THEN I GOT THIS EMAIL! The sandals improved my balance and made my whole summer more enjoyable. Really. So glad I saw some guy wearing a pair and stopped him and asked.

  • Reinhard

    Just a wonderful shoe! I like the style and the idea behind it! Well done, what a lovely shoe! ?

  • Dawn Riggestad

    Love my sandals, the closed toe would be excellent for cooler weather!!

  • stoneyboney

    This is something i have been waiting for

  • Teresa

    So we could use Xero shoes also in winter? Good. Next step: Xero boots! 😀

  • Ceejay S

    Agh!! Yay! I’m so excited! Can’t wait to get a pair in my hands 🙂

  • Lavi586

    Looking forward to!!

  • Chris Rioux

    I am loving my Xero Shoes Z-Treks, for both walking and running, on pavement, through the woods, etc. But it’s starting to get cold up here in New England, and I was walking in them late at night this past weekend, up here in Maine. By the time I got home, I could barely feel my toes due to the cold, but I really don’t want to wear anything else! I am super pumped about trying out a pair of Ipari Hana’s as soon as humanly possible! I just really hope they come in size 14US!

  • Sonia

    The Ipari Hana would certainly make a great addition to my Xero Shoes collection. Can’t wait!

  • Lee Schwabe

    Ipari Hana Haiku:
    Both feet feeling fine
    Awesome posture up my spine
    Ipari Hana

  • Will Taylor

    I am excited about these shoes. There are only a few companies out there who know how damaging padded, inflexible, constricting shoes can be for some people. Thank you for understanding.

  • Peter Barber

    I would like to win a pair of these shoes because they look like the shoe I’ve wanted for years now. I’m a college student (senior) who is planning to join the United States Marine Corps after graduating college when I’ll receive my commission as a 2nd Lieutenant. At Officer Candidate School in Quantico, VA, for two consecutive summers of training, I was literally the only candidate wearing minimalist shoes among hundreds of other Officer Candidates (I looked in vain for other barefoot runners, but nothing of rank upon rank of thick, nasty running shoes could be seen). Training barefoot and wearing minimalist shoes almost exclusively has definitely helped improve my speed by fixing my running form. I finished the final PFT (physical fitness test) well ahead of the max score 3-mile run time, which I attribute in large part to my barefoot training. Every time we swapped our heavy boots for our “go-fasters” (that’s what we call running shoes), I felt like I could fly! I’ve tried lots of different minimalist shoes for when I have to wear shoes, but I’ve never found a pair that is exactly what I want (too narrow, too floppy, poorly made, and just not barefoot enough have been common problems). Xero shoes sandals are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned, but like many others, I’ve long wanted a closed toe version. Thanks for making this a reality!

  • Mike Mitchell

    +1 for all black, please!

  • Passing

    They look great. Would they be suitably wide enough for E width feet?

  • Tom Spadafora

    I’m going to run in these, wear with shorts, pants maybe even sleep in them!

  • libbywalkup

    Super excited about these. The other barefoot brands don’t quite offer styles i’m into in the casual shoe department.

  • libbywalkup

    Also, I feel like, why not abandon the whole gendered shoes thing? Sizes based on foot measurement and can do a Narrow and a Wide version? Just a suggestion.

    • Unfortunately, it’s not that simple. The difference, from a design standpoint, isn’t just narrow/wide. Also, people search for Men’s vs. Women’s differently in ecommerce stores, so if we do things too differently from “normal” it messes with our sales.

      • libbywalkup

        I had no idea that the physiology of the male and female foot was so different. was coming from a minimalist, androgynous and neutral palette consumer standpoint: tired of bright, fluorescent and pink colors targeted at women and in general in the market. I’ve been desperate to find a shoe (since I’ve gone barefoot, a barefoot shoe) that’s casual and versatile for everyday use. something I can take the dog for a walk in and wear to campus; something I can traipse around European cities in while not looking too much like an outsider (sneakers tend to give American tourists away in a flash) and something I can go for a little hike in (I’m not super rugged, like medium to light rugged, like a long, light walk or hike is good but no camping), preferably without breaking the bank. though when I do like a splash of color I prefer blues and greens (not neon) maybe aqua and teal to the red featured here, these are pretty perfect for all that. (because I also I like no laces. :)) of course that’s asking a lot of a shoe, but it seems like it should be quite simple, stay neutral and don’t get too fancy or tailored to a specific purpose or style. but most companies are working too hard on offering too many options, or options that are not quite versatile enough (thinking of lemshoes, in theory I like their boat shoe but I can’t imagine actually wearing it) I imagine mostly to keep us all consuming more, and I get it, everyone’s got to earn a living, but man I’d really love it if someone offered what I’m looking for so I could stop looking for it. I dig Xero shoes’ ethos of simplicity and versatility and I know you’ve got to do what you’ve got to do as far as marketing and design but man I’d be thrilled if you continued to not play on gender myths. I imagine there are plenty of women (and men), androgynous or not, looking for simplicity and palette neutrality. wow. this was long. I had no idea how frustrated I was by my plight to find the perfect casual all round shoe. it’s what I dug about the sandal. even though I don’t particularly dig sandals in general and I sort of messed my build your own up a bit. thanks for listening.

    • Dominique Navarro

      As a woman with big feet I would argue that while my foot is a big woman’s foot it is indeed a woman’s foot. For years I had to buy men’s shoes because my foot is too long for most women’s shoes and they never, ever fit right! Ever! My heel is narrow, my arch high and thinner than most men’s, and while my fore foot is wider it is not as thick as most men’s feet. So I for one am very happy that shoe designers have started to take into account that a woman’s big foot is not made the same as a man’s foot of the same size! ?

  • kusochi

    Thank you for making the new shoes vegan!

  • Van

    Looking forward to a shoe I can wear to work. Thanks, might give this a try.

  • Alio

    Exxxcellent. I desperately need some new can-pass-for-normal (but actually comfortable) shoes. I will definitely buy these, although a version that’s really really plain, as in plain black with black laces and black soles, will be much appreciated by those of us who need stealthy comfort.

  • Robert Donaghy

    Very exited for these, they don’t look like water socks (looking at you fitkicks…) and unlike kigo’s, they don’t have unsupported fabric for the whole shoe, so the laces should actually do something. My one complaint is that the heel looks a little wide compared to the toe box, I had the same complaint with the Ventures, heel could travel a bit, but that is certainly not a big deal.

  • Christina

    I would love all black. I could wear them to work if they were all black.

  • Steve Sherrill

    what size limit will there be on these. your last one only went to size 14 or 13, i forget which . that of course throws my big foot out of the picture

  • Ryan Gebura

    This really looks like an all-in-one champion. Phenonenal work. Thank you Xero! Blown away, can’t wait to put some miles on these souls.

  • René Bod

    René @Nthrlnds Ever since this summer I’ve been wearing my Xeroes every second I could. I love my diy’s with a few tweaks and personal lace style. For the office or any other place, I’ve been bummed out that I couldn’t wear the shoes that give me such a wonderful massaging and connected feel! Seeiing the new Hana’s, it’s love at first sight. Love the dark with orange/rusty details! Can’t wait guys! Kudos!!!

    • René Bod

      PS. It actually took me weeks to get comfortable wearing my diy’s! Through no fault of the sandals, but I honestly couldn’t walk in them (though learning to run in them was pretty quick). My whole posture was depending on cushioned shoes. Now that I’m walking more in my diy’s, I’ve strengthened my back more and am getting a lot stronger feet!

  • Jeremy Newell

    Sweet – these look great!

  • Taylor Bruce

    Really want these to run in during the winter. (Call me a baby) but I’m afraid I’m going to have to switch to some regular shoes. Good thing my birthday is coming up. 🙂

  • Steven Morris

    I’ve been waiting for these. The hip on-line stores have been showing off some other brands of minimalist closed toe shoes, but I’ve waited to buy because I love my Xero sandals and love supporting a friend’s “small” business. Would sure love to win a pair of Hanas!

  • Ben Wardell

    Can’t wait for these.

  • Kristi Kellberg

    I want a pair of Hana shoes because they are comfortable but lightweight. Perfect shoes for cruising through the French Quarter in search of
    ghosts and vampires on Halloween.

  • Hmmm… I think you get a credit if someone you share with then clicks through to come back here.

  • Bryan Wetzel

    Just in time for the cold weather. Yes.

  • Eric Reme

    Love the zero shoes! Bought a pair after trying them at the Paleo fX conference

  • Steven Morris

    How water proof is the fabric in the Hana? Will they make it through the snow here in Colorado without getting my feet soaked?

  • Ted

    I love my Z-Treks, size 12M. How does the sizing compare?

  • Erwan

    These look good! I’m just in the market from some new minimal barefoot shoes and I’d love to get a pair of those!

  • Kate Marie Hodges

    So excited for these!

  • Viktor Makarov

    Awesome! I always prefer having my feet open in sandals but there are times where these would come in very handy.

  • wellswmn97

    I’m in and I NOT like the other love the color!!!

  • The Streeeker

    I own the Z-Trail’s and absolutely love them! It’s like having a tread on my bare feet. Light, flexible, and lovely! So it goes without saying that if I won a pair of the new Ipari Hana’s, I would not only run trails in them, I would do everything in them… EVERYTHING! Yes, even that;)

  • Arrozito

    Finally, something I can use in the winter

  • Tom Miller

    It’s a good thing the Hanas are going to be out for my birthday. I haven’t got a thing to wear.

  • Chris Kendall

    I have been wearing xero shoes since they were invisible shoes and gotta say I love love love them for so many reasons, this new xero Shoe is blowing me away, especially since its still vegan and looks so stylish, I will for sure be getting a pair and sharing with everyone I know 🙂 lalala Love it!

    Winter is coming!

  • Chris Fournier

    There are so few minimalist casual shoes on the market at all! I love my Clouds and I’m excited to see a shoe designed by the same people!

  • Bluecanoe37

    Holy crap in a pita!!! I am sooooo freaking excited about these!! I have been waiting for them to be released since I first heard of them in late July early August! Can’t wait to get me a pair!

  • bobby sue jabat

    oh man i like the look of these i may have to order a pair when hubby orders his new pair of sandals

  • Slowvehicle

    Cannot WAIT for these! Hurry Weekend!

  • Mathieu Garon

    Once again, I’m in.

  • Tara Jansen

    So excited for this and have been waiting for so long. Price is really not bad compared to others out there. Work requirements include close toe shoes. Want so badly I just might order the masculine version.

  • Dominique Navarro

    So excited for these! I have hoping you would try your hand at closed shoes coming from Kanukistan where winters are rarely very forgiving! Yippee! Thanks!

  • Luke Hammond

    I wear my Xero Shoes every single day in secret to the office, but would love the chance to be a bit less covert with my footwear!

  • Amanda W

    I’ve sooooo been waiting for a closed-toe minimal shoe that won’t squeeze across my toes, but won’t fall off my heel! Maybe these will be it? As far as Xeros sizing…I tried the women’s Z-Trek (love the style) but just a bit too narrow across my toes (was so disappointed), but heel fits. I’m concerned the men’s size would be too wide on my heel. (I tried the women’s on at Shoe Station store, but they didn’t have the men’s to try.) Soooo dunno if the Ipari Hana would work for me either. ??? (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!)

  • Douglas Burch

    Ooohhhh, Well sometimes you just need your toes to be covered (for safety reasons) – Plus I don’t mind wearing flowers (花) on my feet 😉

  • Leila

    These look excellent! Definitely a contender to replace my Merrell Pace Gloves. I’ve got my fingers crossed for an all-black color.

  • glenn1you0

    Just in time for winter’s chill.

  • Luca Fronza

    I love wearing my xeros during my 8 hrs djsets!

  • Matthew Christensen

    Looks like an excellent choice for a light weight, compact travel shoe. I’ll take a pair in brown.

  • Jacob Makohin

    What would I do with a pair of Hana?… I’d wear them of course (what else do you do with shoes) while I do everything and anything!

  • Scotty Cameron

    I am leaving for a 3 week expedition across Indonesia with my current xeros…. What I would have done to do it in these! These look like they are the perfect adventure footwear, yet great for world travel and meetings at the same time!

  • gtree_dc

    I have been waiting for these! I am a graduating chiropractic student and can’t be in the clinic without closed toed shoes! I can’t wait to start recommending Xero Shoes to my patients to help with a variety of different ailments!!!

  • Blake Burris

    Great work y’all! This is a pleasant surprise. I’ve been running in the huaraches and could certainly use some barefoot-inspired shoes that don’t break the bank!

  • Samuel Costa

    Ipari Hana=AWESOME

  • Bob Westenhousen

    I love me Xero shoes… but absolutely hate my toes, therefore I pretty much never wear them. The Hana shoes are perfect for me and they look great. I was interested in the Z-Trek when it came out, but didn’t get it partially because of the aforementioned problem and partially because I don’t have much money to be spending on shoes. I think I’ll have to break down and get these though.

  • Guillaume L

    This is amazing news!!! The days of having to choose between comfortable or good looking shoes might just be over! 😀

  • Pit Boss

    I want a pair of Hana shoes because they are comfortable but lightweight, easy to carry for travel, and pretty stylish, too. Like a shoe for all reasons.

  • Guillaume L

    I have a few questions about the shoe. First, what is the insole like? Is it a rougher surface like the Z-Trek or a softer one like the Z-Trail? Also, will it be available in size 13? Thanks!!!

  • irisandtheinseparableinnuendos

    I’ve been wanting to try some Xero Shoes for awhile now, but I just never have the money for it.

  • Nathaniel Owen

    I love these!! I wear your huaraches all the time but bars and clubs don’t let me in so these will be perfect for that!! Here’s a picture of my beautiful huaraches as well.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4c40f07196e361365c3b3fa9a1eba38c238eebdddce35765fa166a8b945d178f.jpg

  • gsroest

    Looks great! Can’t wait to try them out.

  • Mike H Heywood

    I am looking forward to seeing how well these fit my life. My big feet love my 2 pairs of Xero Shoes sandals.

  • Jess

    Eeeeee! So pretty and practical!

  • Marta Herrera

    My gym doesn’t allow me to wear sandals, so I had to get to closest thing to minimal that Nike had in order to be able to workout there. I’m excited!!!

  • Grizzlyman

    I really love that you guys are putting a close toed shoe out especially because it allows for a barefoot experience in settings where a non closed toe show is permitted/allowed.

  • Julie Angle

    Can’t wait!

  • Cody S

    I’m blown away it can cost so much for product dev! I would love to visit you guys and peek at your R&D process 😀 oh and CAN’T WAIT FOR MY PAIR!!!!

  • Score

    I have been looking all over for a pair of minimalist shoes made by minimalists for minimalists and these might be it.

  • Rain

    What about the Hana makes me go “Ooooohhhh!”? …”Ooooohhhh!”…I love that the Hanas are warmer than barefoot and xero sandals for the cold wet Oregon winters but still promise that lovely thin sole! I can still go minimalist but stealth! Yes! Please! Cozy.

  • Mike Riggs

    Would love a solid color throughout, and will the sizing be like the sandals. I wear a men’s 12 in a shoe but a 9 in my xero sandals?
    Thanks!

  • Gordon Davis

    You are releasing these on my birthday! RAD!!

  • Brian C

    I can’t wait!!!! Finally!

  • Jakob Casebolt

    I have a wide foot. In a dumb shoe I would be a 4E. I love me Xeroshoes Z-Trek for the spring/summer, but live in MN and will need a closed toe option. I’m currently in a Vivobarefoot, but am looking for a new shoe so this is perfect timing! With that being said, will the Ipari Hana be wide enough to accommodate a wide foot such as mine? It’s difficult finding a minimalist shoe for my wide feet.

    P.S. These look awesome and would love to get a pair!

  • Brian McGuire

    How so I sign up for the VIP list? It’s not immediately apparent on the site(at least for me!).
    Will buy a pair for sure, have been looking for something like this for a long time, pretty much wear nothing but my clouds all summer!!

    • If you look on the right side of the page at the sweepstakes app… the first option is to sign up for the VIP list. Click it and you’ll be prompted to join.

      • Brian McGuire

        Thanks, signed up! Can’t wait-

  • Josh Schriever

    Looks awesome! I’ve been waiting for this!

  • Logan Harris

    I really like the casual look of the Hana! And it’s very affordable compared to the competition for minimalist casual shoes out there.

  • Colin Glover

    I’m so excited to get my feet into a pair of these

  • pandj2002

    I wear xero sandals daily except at work which forbids wearing sandals after wearing them for 2 years. So the Hana will be perfect for work, a Xero Truefeel in a closed toe configuration. I have a 4E wide foot and the 2 true feel pair fit edge to edge and one diy cherry sole which I run and workout in. If these shoes fit as well as my true feel sandals I will get one of each color. I CANNOT WAIT!! I Must own these shoes! I love telling people about my sandals and how to get them. With the Hana I will have more to talk about. Like your video says I have people come up to me all the time to talk about my Xero sandals. I am an advocate of barefoot wear and would like something for work and something to talk about.

  • Patrick Colasanti

    Best sandals I have ever worn

  • Eunice Seow

    Love the colour?!! I finally see a pair of minimalist that I can wear out, for semi-formal or causal occasions. I jus feel kind of weird having to wear my VVF walking around, even juz shopping, my VVFs are mainly used for indoor workouts.

    With Hana, I see that I can wear these to office, to shopping, for running and gym! It’ll prob even be the new fashion for the red carpet!.. Heehee…

  • Renn Meuwissen

    I think this idea is great! I love the z trails a bunch, and have been wearing them since they came out, but the biggest problem i’m seeeing is with our Montanan winters coming up soon, I’m not sure if i’ll be able to carry out my “sandals every day” goal this year. I think this is a great option for winter, ecspecially for anyone with sensitive toes. My one question is, does this shoe mess with the idea of having toe freedom, or does the wide toe box solve that?

  • Helene A Richard

    I need these for the city! I may have to try them in the mountains as well…. barefoot isn’t the best!
    also paparazi all over my favorite Z-trail shoes!

    • Tim

      Yes, they are vegan.

  • Jennifer Jipping

    Oh my stars! Hana needs to be in my life..

  • Paul sharp

    im so excited that I can finally complete my Air Force PT test in xero shoes!!!!

  • Don Arsenault

    Closed toe but with that thin flexible sole! Sign me up!

  • Trent Ng

    The same thin sole that i love on the sandals, but now in the form of a proper shoe. I can wear this almost everywhere now!

  • Ben Silvers

    I have been looking for a great pair of shoes to wear when sandals just aren’t acceptable and I think these are going to be perfect!

  • MusicMantt

    If I’m lucky enough to get these for free, I fully intend to test these babes on a court floor: I’ll play competitive table tennis in a league, and if I find they’re stable enough, in a tournament, then I’ll report the results with videos of me playing in the shoes! I’ll compare them to my best tt shoes yet, court shoes made by Asics. Added bonus: If I get these for free and edit a video of myself playing, you’ll get to see my hairy legs!

  • Kayla Meunier

    Out of curiosity, how big will the woman’s shoe sizes go?

  • GreenGoat

    I actually do not yet own any pairs of your shoes… but would love to try these 😀

  • Sarah Clarke

    So looking forward to these! I love my sandals and was sad all summer when I had to take them off at work. Can’t wait to get these for all the times I can’t wear sandals. Well, other than outside in the winter. That would be a bad plan.

  • Clarence Say

    Excited to see these launch!

  • Jeff Zapotoczny

    Yes! Been waiting for something just like this!

  • Alistair Magee

    I’m so excited for this. I exclusively wear minimalist shoes, either my xero sandals or vivobarefoot. Buy I’ve never found a nice casual canvas shoe to wear. Finally fashionable and comfortable.

  • cynthia Vizcarra

    This shoes look awesome. I can’t wait to get a pair

    • Ian Salsman

      Me too

  • Laura

    My puppy Scout ate my Xero shoes! :'( They were a kit pair, and I’ve had them for quite a while. I left them in the kitchen after yoga class, because it was a bit muddy out, and I didn’t want to track dirt all over the house. She’s never bothered them before. She usually destroys my sister’s flip-flops. If I win a pair of these, I promise to wear them to take her for walks, and not leave them where she can get them!

  • Logan

    I’m so happy to see Xero Shoes growing. I’ve been wearing my sandals for 2 years straight, except for the super cold days. Then I have to break out the foot coffins. Now, with the Ipari Hana, I will never have to force my feet into foot coffins again!

    Xero Shoes have made my balance better, taught me to walk and run with better stride, and have improved my posture.

    My wife and 2 sons also wear Xero Shoes. Wanna see cute? My toddlers in DIY sandal kits playing in the dirt. My newborn baby girl will even get a DIY pair… I think I’ll make her’s with purple laces.

    Ipari Hana!

  • Spheni

    Love these! Can’t wait to try them.

  • John Novosel

    This is a great upgrade and I am a Z track user, they are very fun to wear and they feel great too. Here in Hawaii I am increasing my walking and the Z Track makes it very comfortable to do that.

  • Amanda Sydnor

    I am so excited about this! I love the huaraches, but they are only usable for personal time for me. Being in the health field, I have to have shoes that are closed-toe. AND I just started looking for a pair of closed-toe minimal shoes last week. In fact, I almost bought a pair but decided to wait since I didn’t feel like anything was exactly what I wanted. This is what I want!!!

  • Heather

    I am excited! I could wear these to work, something that would never be permitted with my Xero sandals. <3

  • Kevin K Tran

    I am so excited for these. definatley going to invest in my feet with these.

  • sylvia

    Great news. Love my 2 pairs of sandals and do also wear them to work. Wish I’d had the Hana a few weeks ago instead of the clunky boots I was wandering around Ladakh in.

  • WOOOAHHH!!!! I am stunned by this!! I love my DIY invisible shoe kit and am still wearing the hell out of them even though they are long overdue for an upgrade. The Amuri Clouds I got I wasn’t as in love with (maybe they were too big or I am just too lazy to adjust them properly?), but I still wore them a TON. But this actual SHOE is a game changer, especially for fall when I want a little extra coverage sometimes.

    I am so stoked to get a pair!

    Also excited to see the women’s reviews on this men’s shoe. I GUESS I can wait until spring for the ladies version, but my feet are pretty big for a woman and about the same size as my boyfriend, so maybe if they’re too wide for me they will become his holiday gift, haha. 😀 But I wore a hole in my boyfriend’s Sanuks from wearing them so often, especially at the pottery studio, and these would be great for that. A little clay splatter makes any outfit that much cooler 😉

  • Bendecho

    Zero, minimal, closed and wide toe box. Can’t wait for the Hana!

  • Felicia RawVeganLeanna

    Been a fan since the beginning! Excited to give these a try and hoping a solid black version is in the works…

  • Kelley Dolan

    I would LOVE a pair of these, they look so comfortable!

  • Surfdogs

    After just a few months in Xero Ventures (and yes, then added Z-Trek Trails) I’ve had the urge to wear my sandals to work!!! However the ‘professional dress code’ of the psych dept prohibits me for doing so. And then, the announcement of the Ipari Hana ! PERFECT TIMING ! So excited. The Venture has allowed this old guy w/ neuropathy in his feet, to ‘go barefoot’ without pain. Such a gift. Xero THANK YOU!

  • Ian Salsman

    These look stylish and functional. Run in them, then join your friends for a hike and then out for cocktails.

  • Jriceon

    I can’t wait to feel the ground again! Been playing basketball and sprinting using Nike/Jordan running or basketball shoes and they just feel so suffocating. Excited to finally be free

  • Pam

    I’m so excited to try running in these! I only run in your sandals, but winter is coming!

  • Orson Wilcox

    Good looking shoes, thinking I’m gonna give this company another shot. Also, If people are worries about these being too wide I’m willing to bet that wearing toe socks would help with that.

  • 阿Fong

    The time has come for a minimalist shoe to be all of the things it needs to be – light, minimal cushioning, durable for activity and STYLISH enough to wear out on a Saturday night! The Ipari Hana promises all of these, and I believe that XeroShoes will be the industry standard for years to come in do-it-all barefoot shoes.

  • Jeri Meadows Eroh

    Very nice! I love the colors!

  • Laura Solar Nova

    Soooooo looking forward to the women’s closed Xeros coming out in the Spring!

  • Andrea Zemrau

    Im a little nervous about the fit of the hana’s for women but it’d be hard to wait till the spring (plus I’d be disappointed if the women’s version was pink).

  • Gary

    I’ve been looking for something like this and other options on the market just haven’t tempted me enough, I’ll be getting these.

  • Gamma8gear

    Dont raise the total point tally for the prize teirs anymore. Lol im super broke and i want these shoes!

  • Kimmo Granroth

    Now this! I’ve been waiting for this. As I live in Finland it starts to get bit chilly here at this time of year so these would really be spot on for me here!

  • Marna Marie’ Strauss

    On my 2nd pair of Xeroshoes (the original diy) in 3 years I actually worn on of my previous pair out – slight hole in the left Xeroshoe. Would love to see how these shoes compare to the Xeroshoes…would love a pair! Bring it on!

  • kevinjgallagher

    These look perfect. The xero sole on the trek are the best in the industry. Hope they feel the same.

  • kevinjgallagher

    Also I’m in the Uk. Can I still order them from the US store or do I have to wait until they come to the UK store ?

  • Trent Ng

    can’t wait to wear these all the time!

  • Jacob Kugler

    So excited to try them out! Going to be awesome going in them to the office, the gym, anywhere really! 🙂

  • CarolynH6

    I like the box toe and the thin sole. It’s a plus that they are lightweight too.

  • Stefan Bruhn

    I haven’t worn anything but my z-treks for months! Will be great with a shoe when it gets colder!

  • Claire

    I have been looking and looking for a pair like this. Now I just need a smart pair for work and some booties for winter! I guess that’ll be next winter…

  • Claire

    So looking forward to the ladies version! Please make an all black pair!

  • Tim

    Should I order the same size as my Z-trail or do you recommend another size for these since they are closed?

  • stratocatblue

    Can’t wait! Love my amuri clouds so much that I wear them almost 100% of the time when I’m not working. However, working in a hospital, open toed shoes are a no- go and I have to resort to the standard cumbersome shoe that’s been the bane of past lower back issues. So glad the Hana’s will be available shortly to provide the same comfort as the clouds and to remedy my situation! Thanks Xero Shoes!

  • Alex

    I love to have one of those …

  • Alex

    I had the Amuri Cloud the whole summer on my feet and now I need something for fall and winter …

  • Nils Oberhommert

    I´ll use them as a daily shoe, when I´m outside with my girlfriend, when it is cold outside, or in situations I would´t feel comfortable in sandals. Xero shoes really helped me to learn running like it is supposed for humans! Your products are great, my kids loved their sandals this summer and they are looking forward to get a new pair next summer.
    I´d love to wear them often, talk to people about my shoes (like I did this summer) and spread the barefoot-culture and maybe we get a reseller in germany too?!?
    Hey, and why not sent a free pair to a country, where xero shoes need to get more public?

    All the best,

    Nils

  • Long lostlad

    At last! A pair of xero’s I can wear in the UK (all year!).
    Are they vegan?

  • Debra Howard

    Can’t wait to try these shoes. I was worrying about transition to cold weather. I never wear anything except my xero shoes until snow and ice.

  • Conor Buckley

    I have been waiting for these for a while. Love Xero shoes and the great service. I need a closed shoe that I can wear on a night out so I can get into Bars and restaurants! Also with the winter closing in it gets a bit chilly in my amuri Clouds for walking my dogs! Looking forward to trying these out.

  • Slowvehicle

    While I hope they have an all-black colorway (in this or in another shoe) in the works, I will definitely get at least one pair of these. They look like great all-round (hiking New Mexico, anyone?) shoes. Stoked!

  • Jezus Santos

    I want to give them to my grandma. My grandma was a single mother at 17, raised my father on her own, had two more boys later and raised them 3 on their own with 3 full time jobs. All she does is work and that’s all she’s ever done. And in the restaurant business, that means a lot of time on her feet. She’s still working hard today, sometimes pulling double shifts from morning till midnight. I notice her feet has taken a lot of beatings and I just want her to feel good. She deserves it. She is a generous person, she could care less about any type of material possession, she has housed many people in her home, always inviting friends and family. She’s the man. Oh and she has wide feet too so I thought it’d be perfect for her 🙂

  • crapnurse

    yes,yes,yes,have been with your brand since the start.in love with them then ,and still in love with them now.

  • Sebastian Zacharias

    I have been a staunch believer in Running shoes for as far as I can remember. Despite being a big fan of “Born to Run” and being part of a mostly Bare foot (mostly – we call our selves the “Soles of Cochin”) running club, I was never inspired to try our minimalist shoes / sandals. Infact I went in the opposite direction (I have been a HOKA Clifton user for over a year now). But something about the Amuri Cloud caught my eye and I had to get myself one, even if it was just for Daily casual wear. Once I got my first pair I was hooked and more importantly I my sandals were the talk of the town. People loved the minimalist look and I would get compliments everywehere I went. But I still wasn’t convinced about running in them. Then I came across a friend of mine who uses the Z-Trek Sandal and he convinced me to get one for myself.

    For the last month I have been slowly transitioning to running in them, and I am beginning to really enjoy the weightlessness and flexibility and airiness when running in them. Just last Sunday I did a 10+ Mile in them and it was a amazing. I can’t wait to get my hands on the Hana. It looks amazing (I might pick up all the colors)!

  • Sylvester Zeitgeist

    I was looking for flip-flops and discover Xero shoes, same prise it just hold instead for 3 weeks, 3 summer times and then I get experienced health benefits and get radical about that. I was waiting till some one will finger out ‘Hana’ and now I can’t wait to have them. It is healthy, comfy, I like it, I want it, I need it …. Just please stop teasing me and give me those shoes. It is not expensive, durable, practical, healthy … I already made my decision it is nothing to think about, I don’t want waist my time about it , just give me my shoes. I can write contract where you will be responsible for my foot wear till I die and one pear in the coffin. That bear foot thing restore, rejuvenates vitality, there is real nutritious movement. Xero shoes just protects your feet with out intervene in your natural walking. It takes time to get use to and you will be hooked for life. After winter first run in Xero shoes is so pleasurable I step on small stones just to feel it. Its like kicking out casts from your feet and getting back to life.

  • Tony Konvalin

    Look like great shoes for the up coming colder days.

  • gregory makuch

    When I need to feel the world
    But my toes simply must hide
    I throw on my Xero Hana “shoes”
    And all I do is smile!

  • I’m totally gonna buy a pair! I absolutely love my xero shoes sandals and constantly get asked about them. Can’t wait to hear the comments about these. Best part is they really are stylish enough to be worn at work or for play. I might be buying two :S

  • gregory makuch

    There once was a girl named Hana
    Her boss said no more toes I will see!
    So she begged Steven to help her
    And she still wears Xero’s on her feet!

  • Helen

    I found them through some people that I trust judge well! I haven’t tried them before, but I’d like a pair.

  • Autumn Renee Firefly Wallis

    Can’t wait for these to be released!

  • Keith

    Yes, exactly what I’ve been looking for! I can get away with some fairly casual shoes in the office, but NOT sandals! While I would prefer all black or all brown options, I can still get away with these most days.

  • Max Salichon

    What to do with them? The question should be: Anything you can’t do in them? Perfect for just about anything. Durability on the Z-Trail is awesome, Hana should be very similar, Yay!

  • lukeradl

    I’m curious to know the water/weatherproofness of these? Looking for something I can run/hike in during the winter. How do they stack up against the vivo hiker?

  • Anthony B

    wow they look great !

  • MrMonkeyMonk

    Will the Hana be machine washable? This is obviously not an issue with Z-Treks, but I’ve noticed a trend in other minimal shoes where brands that were originally machine washable no longer are.

  • Brianna White

    Love the minimal style of these shoes! And I also think an all black pair would be awesome.

  • Joseph Peed

    I am so excited for these shoes!

  • Haley Potter McDaniel

    These are awesome! They look great, and I can’t wait to have my own.

  • Yay! Excited about these. I wear my Xero sandals all year round except for winter!

  • Thomas Sullivan

    I’ve been doing great with my new Clouds on my daily hike for the past six months. Looking forward to wearing a shoe version to work. Thanks for developing this!

  • I’ve been loving my sandals all summer and was hoping for something like this now that it’s getting colder!

  • Maria Antonescu

    What a beautiful shoe. Hoping to win 🙂

  • Jonathan Deering

    I absolutely love my Xero shoes Z-Trail. They are the answer to blisters because by design there is no slipping anywhere. I look for excuses to wear them and am looking for ways to wear them in the colder months. This new shoe may be the answer, especially the incorporated heel strap that is so effective! I cannot wait to try these.

  • JVK

    Xero brand has been highly recommended by a friend, but I have never been a sandal kinda guy. Really looking forward to trying out the closed toe shoe. Apologies to my Snuks.

  • Samantha Knowlton

    Yes! The more that discount increases, the more excited I am about these. 😀

  • Nicolas Overstreet

    These shoes look awesome.

  • Scott Kinney

    This is so great, now there’s a go-anywhere (restaurants, theater, travel, etc.) option from Xero!!! It also resolves the “you need to wear closed-toe shoes” request I get from gyms sometimes while traveling….

  • Samuel Costa

    Can’t wait to try these shoes out!

  • Mel

    Next spring for the women’s? I’ll be in sandals again by spring. Maybe next winter. I hope you’ll make some nice colors for us and not go nuts with the pastels and florescent stuff like so many companies do. Navy would be great. And gray. Congrats on the new shoe!

  • The_Brusser

    Exciting news can’t wait to get a pair!

  • Pål

    Slept on it….and decided,yea I still want these…now take my money and gief shoes! 😀

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    Woww…. finally xerodrop covered shoes. Most days I am walking long distances in suburbia and with these I will be able to blend in and feel warm and comfortable!!

  • Logan Harris

    I second the vote for a black shoe option!

  • Nick Frost

    Love my home made Xeros! Looking forward to trying the Ipari Hana for the winter, which I have found tough before.

  • smwinn7

    a version with black instead of orange straps would be great

  • Matthew Medina

    I’ve been a barefooter for over 20 years, and I almost never have need for a closed-toe shoe solution, but I’ve relied on Xero shoes as my footwear backups for many years, and I know there will come a time when a closed-toe shoe will be called for, and I’m so glad that Xero has that option now.

  • We’ll have sizing details and templates posted soon.

  • Aristotled

    Just in time for fall and winter… this will be Xero pair number 3 for me. 🙂 always getting compliments on the sandals, bring on the Hanas!!

  • Wes Hamner

    These look great, can’t wait to try them out for parkour.

  • Hugh LaPenotiere

    I love my Amuri Z-Trek sandals, so can’t wait to get a pair of these!

  • Iron Rod Taylor

    I love Xero shoes! I wear them everywhere, even when I work on my car. I am starting the Academy with the Police department here in Vegas in december and would love havea pare to wear whend running and training! I’m gonna buy a pare ether way it would just be nice to get a free pair! Also I’ll do a video review of them on YouTube for the world to see!

  • Logan

    Love the black/rust color!

  • Ronald McGruder

    Great looking shoes

  • Joel Fregia

    Can’t wait for these to be released!

  • Ben Doke

    Can’t wait…Love my xero z trail runners.

  • Ravi Teja Sangeetha

    Finally we have something from Xeroshoes that wont raise eyebrows every time i called them shoes! (Had a pair of classic DIY’s earlier). Love you XeroShoes for your new design. Looking forward to running in them. 🙂

  • John Pavoncello

    Can’t wait to give these a try

  • Pierre Gremaud

    Well, they finally got the sandals right. Let’s hope the shoe will be a winner also.

  • Sunny

    Thanks for making such lovely products! Congratulations to whoever manages to win a pair of these… May your feet feel fabulous! : )

  • Heather Fehr

    When you live in a place that is too cold for sandals 7-8 months of the year, something like this is just what we need!

  • Chris Pittillo

    These look pretty nice.

  • Vagelie Karatzas

    All Black option, please!

  • Joanna Koskamp

    What a neat shoe. Would love to win a pair.

  • Ian Connel

    Love my huaraches from Xero. Easiest summer sandals I have ever owned. Here’s to strong feet!

  • Sarah

    Always excited to have more options. Looking forward to trying these.

  • Patrick

    Finally a shoe I can wear at work. It’s so unfair, women can wear sandals (even flip-flops) at my place of work but a man cannot without judgement “Are you a hippie?”. I would prefer an all black shoe though.

  • Wei Siang Mah

    Cloud was the best sandals i ever had…soo looking forward to this shoes!!!

  • JC S

    Well I love the look of the charcoal and orange, a fully black shoe would be one I could be sure to wear 7 days a week. That’s one of the reasons I went with the black sole, black lace DIY Shoe Kit when I first purchased. I knew long term it was the one I could work with any sort of outfit, on any sort of occasion, in practically any setting, all spring, summer, and fall….though I was planning for the odd looks come winter. However, with this Ipari Hana I can probobly forget any odd looks after all.

    • JC S

      Black or no fully black shoe though, I’m really excited about these, and win or lose I plan to get a pair and wear them into the ground.

  • Maggie Brandenburg

    I’m stoked to see how they do in the deep snow of my little mountain town this winter!

  • Dustin B

    I love my Xeros! I never take them off! Excited for the new shoe!

  • Luke

    These shoes look awesome!! 😀

  • Ben Silvers

    I like to tell people Xeroshoes can cure male pattern baldness. Now with this being a possible office shoe… maybe they can cure computer squint eye!

  • Phil Tobin

    Perfect timing with winter coming!

  • Mark Nelson

    These look absolutely rad! I have a sneaking suspicion that office wear is not the number one goal for this company so I don’t think the lack of an all black shoe is really a significant issue. They really aren’t flashy at all, especially when you compare them to a lot of dress shoes out there, even if those are monochromatic. Xero shoes have always caused wearers to stand out, and I’m sure most of us love talking about why we go barefoot anyway(a vegan, crossfitter, 2nd amendment advocate and a barefoot runner are all in a room, who tells you about it first?). I think the contrast brings a whole lot to the overall design. It’s very contemporary, not over the top at all, and I think we are all going to absolutely love having them on our feet.

    Still waiting on those fiver finger sandals though 😉

  • Mark Jacobi

    So very interested. I get crap from my wife for wearing sandals during the winter. TAKE THAT.

  • Blake White

    Here comes my new work shoes. I can show up the boss for not letting me wear my Ventures to work.

  • Anat Arad

    Big Like to your new design!

  • alex borgen

    ninja feet! modern day sneaks …finally an “approach”-esque grippy shoe with a wide toe box.

  • David Gour

    A few years ago I started to suffer arthritis in my ankles and feet. When I bought the ztrek I discovered that wearing them when got heavy pain it helps me to relieve a hugh amount of it. And that’s the reason why I wear them the most I can, … but always come winter…
    So when I just see the Ipari Hana almost cry, seems that someone listen my wishes!

  • Chris Kendall

    Every day i am getting more hyped up about these new shoes, I just love my sandals and think these will be over the top awesome!! 🙂

  • Scott Entwistle

    Any chance the colors will change going forward? I love the design of these things, can’t wait to order a pair!

  • Clarence Say

    Let’s do this! Haha

  • Rachel Beittenmiller

    I’m not much of a sandal person, so I’m really excited to get a closed toe Xero shoe.

  • Rose Phillips

    Wow this is actually just what I’ve been hoping for! A barefoot designed shoe that I can wear to work. <3

  • thewrightmom7

    This will replace my Tom’s as daily cas.

  • Suzanne

    Which template do you use to determine size? One of the sandal templates, or does the Hana have its own sizing?

  • Amy Wayland

    would love to try a pair of these, as I prefer barefoot whenever possible!

  • Lisa Coomer Queen

    I really want a pair of these comfy things!

  • Dave V

    Even my friends that think my Xeroshoe wearing lifestyle is absurd have admitted that they love the look and idea of this shoe!

  • Scott Entwistle

    Is the fit the same as the Amuri Z-Trek? I.e. can I order the same size I have the Amuri in if it’s been a good fit?

  • Seth Longacre

    Watched some review videos and Steven’s promo video. Now I just want them MORE. Monday can’t get here soon enough.

  • Sue Kirkpatrick

    In these great shoes I’d do a happy dance!

  • EJ

    I don’t think I can fully express my need for these shoes… I dreamt of these before they were in existence.

  • Eric Anderson

    Living in New England my toes appreciate some warming cover when the temperature drops. I’m psyched to see these!!!

  • Corry Lehmann

    These look awesome!!!

  • ‫דניאל אלי‬‎

    Hi guys.
    I just got back home after celebrating “Yom Kippur”. It’s the holiest day in the Jewish colander. We spend the day fasting and praying. One of the limitations in this day (besides no food or drinks) is not wearing leather shoes. So I wore my xero sandeles and thought to myself “I wish I had another option, some kind of xero shoe”.
    Came back home and saw this new shoe thing..
    I guess this prayer has been answered instantly.
    ?
    Whising you success with the new model and a blessed year.

  • SC

    This shoes would be great for winter if they are waterproofable, I spend all winter long (and being in the north of England, plenty of the summertime too!) with soggy feet…

  • Ryo Rashak

    These look so comfortable while maintaining what I would expect from Xero Shoes. Amazing design!

  • andrew

    I can’t enter for some reason – i’ve tried all of the options with no success – I’ll be happy to buy a pair on the day they launch anyway but it would be nice to join the competiton too. I’m just so chuffed that finally you have a closed toe shoe available. It will be the best closed toe shoe out there, of that much i am already certain. Geat news guys – and thanks.

  • Amanda W

    I’ve sooooo been waiting for a closed-toe minimal shoe that won’t squeeze across my toes, but won’t fall off my heel! Maybe these will be it? As far as Xeros sizing…I tried the women’s Z-Trek (love the style) but just a bit too narrow across my toes (was so disappointed), but heel fits. I’m concerned the men’s size would be too wide on my heel. (I tried the women’s on at Shoe Station store, but they didn’t have the men’s to try.) Soooo dunno if the Ipari Hana would work for me either. ??? (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!)

  • Naomi Aldort

    As the author of a parenting book, Raising Our Children, Raising Ourselves, in 17 languages, and I maybe the only advocate for raising children barefoot or as close to it as possible. I can’t wait for the Hana shoes and also, eventually for children’s sizes. Children can easily run on rocks, rough ground, sand and dirt as well as climb trees with the feet nature provided to walk and master this earth. Hopefully some day Xero shoes can find a way to create a sole that is conductive so we even get the earthing we need so badly.

    • Christin Bummer

      I’m going to check out your book! I had a heck of a time finding a minimalist shoe for my toddler. I’m curious if you have other suggestions for kids. Until XeroShoes starts a children’s line of course 😉

  • andrew

    will the sizing be the same as amuri/z trek? oh and what makes me go ooooooh?! – they look stunning and i know they will feel as good as they look. i’mnot one for hyperbole but i know these will be the best shoes i have ever had – and i’ve done the rounds with “minimal” footwear.

  • aademirci

    I am writing this comment before looking at the specs. But with that price, put me on the list! Finally, I can wear Xero Shoes as casual footwear.

  • Erik Jose-Valentino Garcia

    Done. buying a pair

  • Mike Ossofsky (morock13)

    This looks awesome and I am grateful that America is still free enough that a small business can develop something new and innovative to help our physical being. And that they haven’t regulated us to wear the big name shoe because they give our politicians money.

  • ilyagl

    we’ve been waiting long time for that.

  • Christin Bummer

    I’m so excited to try these shoes! I was JUST wondering what the heck I’m going to wear all winter!

  • Caroline A Hall

    Black sounds awesome. goes with all the minimalist clothes i dont have lol

  • Brittany

    I want a pair to walk 3 miles a day in them, to work and back home, feeling all 33 joints of my feet articulating over the ground as I go. Brain-body connection here I come!

  • Bernard Wrangle

    Minimal, lightweight, and looks good…sounds like a win to me!

  • Emily Murnen

    These look amazing! I can’t wait to try them.

  • Valerie Wilkinson

    These look comfortable!

  • Debbie Engel

    I can’t wait for a women’s closed toe shoe! I love my sandals.

  • Thaum

    Can I plant strawberry plants in them?

  • Jason

    Finally! I hope the outsole is customizable like the sandal is. All toe boxes are not the same!

  • Danielle Shannon

    I love wearing my Xero sandals all summer but Manitoba winters are a little too cold for them. These would extend my comfy shoe season from 5 months to about 8 which would be lovely!

  • Evelyn

    I was just thinking how it is getting too cold for my sandals, and I’d have to suck it up and put regular shoes on for the winter. Yay!

  • Caroline Sexton

    I love your sandals so can’t wait for the shoe!

  • No, we won’t be making the Hana in leather.

  • nicholasalias

    Wow these look fantastic. A long way from the diy sheets.

  • John H

    I’m quite excited to hear about these shoes. I’m particularly happy about the color selection, and would support additional muted/casual colors, such as white or light grey and all brown as well as all black.

  • The Hana looks like a nice balance between minimal design and stylish functionality. I especially like the look of the web straps around the ankle for dialing in a custom fit while leaving the toes free to splay (and play).

  • Alec Peiffer

    Perfect timing! I’ve been searching for a closed toe minimalist shoe to replace my Cloud’s for the winter, and these are perfect. I’ve worn my Clouds on three continents now and each time people have stopped to ask about them. The Hana’s are going to legitimately create buzz in the local climbing community!

  • Charley

    How do the sizing work on these compared to the Z trails? Can’t wait to get a pair!

  • Ém

    Cool shoes! Would love an all black version!

  • Dennis Jarrel

    I’m going to use these to run my way down to Northern Mexico and meet the Tarahumara!

  • Heather

    Are the hanas made to be worn with socks, or barefoot? I am wondering how well they will fit. With my regular Xero sandals I could trim them to make them more suitable for my narrow feet. Obviously I can’t do them with the hanas. Will you post outlines for us to print to see how close the fit will be?

  • notoneofthemyet

    I have been looking for shoes that are less sporty looking. These are just the style I was looking for.

  • Bob Westenhousen

    Have you thought about sending some of these to celebrities to help get the word out? While obviously great for athletes, these would also be good for musicians on tour that spend a lot of time in airports/tour bus that want something comfortable and casual(and possibly to make a statement).

  • Gidon Ariel

    I also need all black…

  • Bobbie Smith

    What makes me say OHHHH about this shoe would definitely be how they are lightweight

  • George Harris

    Great looking shoe

  • knittymama

    Love! I spend my day teaching…my feet would be so happy in these!!

  • Bucky Banks

    Sweet shoes I want to get some to help out my lower back issues

  • Cesar Vallejo

    Awesome! I did a round the world trip with the xero shoes. Can’t wait to try these!

  • Cathy

    Already looking forward to adding these to my fave Xero shoes to rave about! Looking forward to a pair I can get away with wearing to work. 🙂 Woo hoo, yes! (I also like idea of all black option!)

  • Jeff Gallo

    Couldn’t be more excited for these. I’ve been in search of a great shoe to complement my DIY Xeros and these look just perfect!

  • Kaitlyn taylor

    Excited about these! Cant wait for the womens pair to come out!

  • Renn Meuwissen

    Is there a possibility that Xero Shoes will look into climbing/approach/scrambling shoes? or really anything with just a bit of climbing rubber on the toe and heel?

  • James T. Hadley

    Very exicited to get out of my normal school shoes and into these.

  • FlaVickie

    Perfect for my always on the go lifestyle..from the second my feet hit the floor to the minute I lay my head down on my pillow…hours later.
    Thanks
    Vickie

  • FlaVickie

    Btw..I Love your color choice !!

  • Laura

    I wear shoes as little as possible, and I live in New England. It’s autumn. My feet are cold :/ These would be perfect to remedy my situation! 🙂

    • Amanda Sydnor

      Yes! I can handle cold legs and arms, but I can’t do cold feet.

  • Edd Twilbeck

    Would love to have these as an alternative in colder months – can’t wear z-treks year round!

  • ELee

    I can finally part with my xero sandals for the season!

  • JlROD

    I’m counting the days

  • Dr Jill

    I have a narrow foot – so I guess I will wait until spring for the women’s version. Darn – these look great.
    My narrow foot may be why I have had so much trouble with the Xero Sandal [sliding on my foot, tripping me up when I walk etc. I only wear them on tile floors so I don’t fall.]

  • angela

    they’re stylish, closed toe and light weight.

  • Douglas Kirchgesler

    Just the shoe I’ve been waiting for!

  • Claudio Pagan

    They look fantastic! I can’t wait to get a pair or 3 🙂

  • I totally need these shoes…!

  • SpleenlessRob

    My Z-Treks feel like a thousand angels caressing my falangies. I can’t imagine how great the Hana will be! A million?!?

  • Amanda

    I work in a school in Japan. I cover miles in my classroom and on campus, but open toed is unacceptable. So my Xeroes get ditched at the entry way, and my toes get stuck in a box. THIS is what I’ve been waiting for! Super stoked to take them olympic lifting too.

  • Positive, sadly 😉

  • Jakob Casebolt

    Do the shoes accommodate a wide foot? My foot is more wide in the middle than it is in the toe box.

  • Caligula

    Would really love to win a pair of these since my dogs decided they liked my z-treks more than I did. They were the most comfortable thing I ever wore on my feet and I didn’t wear anything else when I could help it. (Even wore them to work which was technically against the rules. I couldn’t help myself!) I’d be allowed to wear this pair to work and they couldn’t say anything about it!

  • Marc Stev

    I have been waiting for closed Xero shoes foreeeever, I can’t wait haha ! Because my school doesn’t allow open shoes so everyday I have to wear these foot-compressing-prisons .. I feel so free when I wear my Amuri clouds so I can’t wait to get myself a pair of Hana !!

  • Chris Klaus

    Truly stoked. Must. Have. Hanas.

  • Zach Hodgson

    Woah! Super Looking forward to these!

  • Rachel kirk

    Thank you for making this shoe vegan!!! Could not be happier that we can support your company wholeheartedly! I want my shoes to be minimal, and animal free!! I love my diy sandals, and these shoes look like they will be a favorite as well!! Can’t wait!

  • Rodney Stone

    Great looking shoes

  • Dan Netti

    Can’t talk more highly of what you guys are doing. Its been a personal goal of mine, after buying my first pair a year ago, to sell as many of your products as I can simply because I want to see you guys thrive. Nothing is more satisfying than giving my money to a company that I know is changing the world and making such an impact. Since my purchase, I’ve sold 4 pairs to friends and have even hiked the highest mountain in NY in them (despite the forest rangers advising me otherwis). So that’s my reason on why I would love a pair of the new shoes you just created. Thanks for all you guys do, you are truly an inspiration.

  • Chris Harmon

    Would love to try them.

  • Ryan Milligan

    Will these be available for us large-footed people? I wear a 14 or 15 (48 or 49 in EU sizing).

  • TJ Clark

    Exciting! And just in time for winter!

  • Bendecho

    Mmmmmm! Live in flip flops as it is these days. These will be great when I need a closed toe box

  • Mark Gutman

    Love Xero shoes. I expect the new ones to be just as good!

  • Andrew Purvis

    Totally just posting a comment to get some more points…

  • Morgan Jellison

    This is super cool.

  • Yair Geva

    Love the Xero shose so much! i im walking with my sandals for the last 5 mouth and can’t take them off my feet all along the Israeli hot summer!
    I can’t even think off going back in to regular shoes in the winter 🙁 !
    I think your new shoes is exactly what I need 🙂

  • Pops

    Nice looking can’t wait to try them

  • Brandon

    As winter approaches, these are becoming ever more appealing!

  • hadar kahani

    we already became xero shoes missionaries during the summer, so happy now to be able to wear and spread the Xero shoes magnificence all year round!!!!

  • Tim

    What time on the 17th will these be released? I live in Japan so I wonder if I should stay up at night for the release or sleep. 🙂

  • Moshe Friedline

    I have been waiting for something like this for a while Xero Shoes. Now I’ll never have to wear a regular shoe again.

  • Janeen Ellen Love

    This shoe looks incredibly comfortable! I absolutely cannot wait to try it out for myself! But I’m sure it won’t just be a trial. I want a pair for keeps! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 I'm looking forward to winning a pair ^o~

  • Trent Ng

    will there be limited stock available during the launch?

  • Chels

    I live in Germany and I’m on my feet a lot (running, commuting, etc.) and can’t wait until this new pair of xero shoes are out!

  • Nurit Anati

    what would I do with them? What wouldn’t I…?
    I’d run and jump and dance in them. I’d do my daily Falun Gong practice whenever it’s too cold for bare feet. If a lion or a tiger chases me (in Israel), I’d use ’em to run away from it. (Although the only reason for them to chase me is to take my cool shoes away from me, I know.) I’d go to important work meetings and wiggle my toes under the table while everybody else’s toes are tightly wrapped in heavy boots.

  • hdbpilot

    I am really looking forward to the release of these shoes. I wear the sandals all the time but need closed toe shoes for work and events. These will be the perfect answer most of the time. I’ll bet they p0rove great for trail running…we will see

  • Slowvehicle

    Looks like the best shoe to teach in, ever!

  • Toby Curwin

    I’ve been waiting for these for years – actually years! I’ve worn nothing but invisible and xero sandals for all the non-freezing months since 2012, and I would be so proud and excited to run and jump and live in these for the rest of the year! Please please please pick me 🙂 <3

  • Brian Sullivan

    Will there be printable templates to test our foot size against?

  • DLB

    These look amazing! Can’t wait to see the rest of the Ipari line as well. I LOVE the barefoot feel, and having it in a closed shoe is even better.

  • SpleenlessRob

    When I got my first pair of Xero Shoes in the mail I instantly drove to the mountains to try them out on the trail. That was spring. This is Fall; new season, new Xero Shoes. #hana

  • Jenjas

    Hana, I’ve been waiting … for a shoe like you to come into my life. Yeah waiting … for a shoe like you, to make me feel alive.

  • We don’t ask for anything like a report from your Fitbit… it’s all a ballpark estimate 😉

  • This sole should last longer, actually… it’s the same sole as our Z-Trek, which is more durable than the Cloud (only because it’s a BIT thicker(.

  • We looked into it and couldn’t find a hemp that gave us the performance characteristics we wanted… plus it was surprisingly expensive.

  • Natalie

    I love that you can easily slip these shoes on!

  • Jonathan Deering

    Getting closer, Can’t wait!

  • Gage Peterson

    YESSS! I NEED these. For the following reasons: biking, moving people, yard work, office work (when people force me to be formal), because it’s super cold like 60% of the time in Utah, I hate toe scrunching shoes, when I don’t want a black widow to bite me that once sighted on my patio then suddenly disappeared, now I can basically never wear anything without zero shoes feel, and because they look flipping sweet!

  • Rayne Boyer

    These shoes look super slick, and comfortable to boot

  • Pål

    Winter is coming…need some footwear that can be worn with socks …now sell me some! 😉

  • Aubrey Frances

    I am so excited about these shoes! I have loved my Z-Trails! I wear them all day, EVERY DAY! I am so excited about a full coverage shoe, that still lets me feel the earth and keep all the amazing benefits of being barefoot! Can’t wait!!!

  • Blake White

    I love my Ventures but I still hadn’t found the right shoe for those annoying times when I have to wear them. Looks like I found it now with these. Can’t wait to get my pair.

  • Jacob Kugler

    WOW!! Been waiting so long for this!
    I bought the Z-Trek sandals few months ago and they are awesome!
    But most of the day I’m in the office and shoes are preferred. Now that shoes are available I can’t wait to by me a pair.
    This way I can actually go “barefoot” all day, every day!. And from what I saw in the early reviews I’ll be using the shoes for my daily routine and for sports/hikes basically everything. sounds like the ultimate shoes! =]

  • Tom Yung

    Love xero shoes. I wear my Amuri Clouds and Z-trails everyday. Have been waiting for a zero drop shoe

  • Judy Langemo Roth

    Commenting, and hoping for the WIN!!

  • gregory makuch

    These are awesome! I think they will be a perfect addition to my collection (Z-Trek, 4mm Connect, 6mm Contact). Right now (until I can wear sandals all the time) I’m stuck wearing vivo ra or gobi to work. While they say they are “minimal,” I think they are still a bit stiff. I need another option. I need a Xero “shoe” that can go with slacks…or slack line! Plus, when my wife says “You can’t wear your Xero’s to [church, funeral, wedding, fancy restaurant, etc.,]” with the Hana’s I can! After 24 years of marriage, don’t I deserve to be right at least once? Steven only you and Hana can help!

  • Logan

    5 more days!

  • Kait

    4 more days and counting down!!!! I have been waiting for a shoe like this for ages….

  • Moutaz Elias

    Let us see what happens here :p they look pretty awseome

  • Joel Fregia

    Give me shoes with a wide toe box, or give me death!

  • Bryan Wetzel

    How about adding some funky colors?

  • k_measell

    I’ve been waiting for the Ipari Hana’s! I wear minimalist shoes as often as possible, including just everyday casual shoes. A few years ago I bought one of the last pairs of Merrell’s version of their causal barefoot shoe online, but they are starting to look pretty rough. Since Merrell has stepped back from the barefoot line I’ve been trying to figure out what my next pair of “bare-shoes” should be. It seems like a lot of other bare-brands tend jack up their prices and I’m on a budget! As much as I love wearing bare-shoes I just can’t bring myself to pay over $100 for less shoe! In my despair I recently bought a pair of Tom’s because they were a really good price. As much as I like the style of them I feel like I’ve cheated my feet (and the rest of my body) out of a really good thing. Not long after I purchased the Tom’s I got the e-mail about the Ipari Hana’s and had to do a major face-palm! Right now I can’t afford to buy another pair of shoes so I really, really, really hope I win some!

  • Anders Slaga Larsen

    hope they’re as good as their sandals

    • Joel Fregia

      I have full faith and confidence that they will be!

  • Pewie

    Super excited about the hana. I’ve run many miles in my huraches. Would be cool to have something I could wear in the cold without having to fuss with toe socks or trail shoes…

  • thewrightmom7

    They look super comfy- Love to have some!!

  • nicholasalias

    Adding comments for entries feels weird. What else can I really write about?

  • Dan Pinsent

    Will these be available in size 14??? I sure hope so!

  • Heather

    We passed 40,000 points! 😀

  • TJ Clark

    I’m getting irrationally excited about these shoes!

  • Amanda W

    I’ve sooooo been waiting for a closed-toe minimal shoe that won’t squeeze across my toes, but won’t fall off my heel! Maybe these will be it? As far as Xeros sizing…I tried the women’s Z-Trek (love the style) but just a bit too narrow across my toes (was so disappointed), but heel fits. I’m concerned the men’s size would be too wide on my heel. (I tried the women’s on at Shoe Station store, but they didn’t have the men’s to try.) Soooo dunno if the Ipari Hana would work for me either. ??? (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!)

  • Xzavier Alexander

    Ohh.. I like these!! If they’re what I expected, I’ll have to buy other colors! And for a woman I do have pretty wide foot, not to mention, I’d love to be able to wear my toe correctors in them!
    I’ll probably do everything that I usually do in my other Xero Shoes, ruining, biking, day-to-day wear, but I’ll also be able to go to church, and work, and climb, and do all the things I couldn’t do besides in them… plus new colors!
    Why give them to me? One, because if I like them, I’ll buy more. Two, because I tell a lot of people about the products I love. And finally, because, helping people get back to better feet and knowing that they’re going to go on adventures and live this crazy and amazing life in this invention of yours gives you a small sense of purpose and proudness. I sure that’s what these shoes will get out of them.
    It’s good to feel the earth again. And they’re vegan!

    Still really hoping to get a chance to try these out!

  • L Pinkcar

    I walk 50 miles a week and am always looking for a shoe that can keep up. I cannot stand not walking and want to be agile and on my feet all the time with no aches and pains! Is this the answer? thank you for the chance!

  • Callie Andra Pfaff

    These look really awesome! I’ve been wanting to try out Xero shoes for awhile!

  • Jason Maxfield

    Whether I win the shoes or not, you’ll still have my business.

  • Nigsdylan

    Would love to try some!

  • Chris Kendall

    For years I have been using invisible then xero shoes / sandals for hiking and all around, but, when I wanted a closed toe show I always wore some new ballances, I am so excited to replace those with more xero shoes!!

  • Charles

    Sign me up!

  • George W. Bush

    I love the Xero sandals….been wearing them everyday! Steve is right…people will walk up to you and ask you about your sandals!

  • Tracey Truly

    These shoes look very interesting! We pretty much live in our xero sandals…not hard to do in the desert. It does get chilly in the winter so closed toe shoes are a must at times…

  • Logan Cooper

    I can’t wait!!! I live in my Xeros when I’m not at work and now I can wear them at work too! I’m a physical therapist and will finally be able to practice what I preach in my day-to-day wear.

  • EJ

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaaaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaAAAAAAAAAWESOME SHOES!!!!

  • Jim Gannon

    Perfect shoes for mindful walking!

  • Taylor Bruce

    Can’t wait for these to come out.

  • Kiran Nikam

    Its just natural…

  • Bernard Wrangle

    Really looking forward to seeing these in person…100,000 points is coming soon!

  • Courtney Holloway

    My toes are freezing most of the time and get stubbed a lot, so what better to wrap around those little piggies than a pair of Hana?!

  • Ryo Rashak

    These shoes are everything you could ever want from a shoe!

  • Tracy Popey

    I can’t wait – need something that is a bit warmer than huarches.

  • Corry Lehmann

    Everything about these shoes makes me go, “Oooooo!!!”

  • Enia

    As a mom I would love to wake up and put these on first thing in the morning everyday. I’ve been looking for some shoes that could literally become a part of me and feel comfortable throughout the day. I feel like these are going to be the shoes I can relax in no matter what I’m doing. I’m super excited and even started selling my other pairs to afford these!

  • Priya Bansal

    I found these guys years ago when they just had those custom-made sandals. They were awesome, and the only sandals I could run in without hurting my feet, but restringing them from time to time wasn’t easy. Just as I was looking for barefoot sandals that didn’t need to be restrung, they made them, and I got a pair. Still as wonderful as ever, but they only work during the summer. I tried barefoot shoes from other companies, but if they weren’t incredibly expensive they would come apart after one winter. Just last week I was thinking how wonderful it would be if this company made closed-toed shoes. I was literally about to shoot them an email about it. And then they come out with this! So psyched.

  • Max Salichon

    Zeros all the way! Very excited about the Hana!

  • Sarah

    I love these!

  • Char

    These shoes look amazing! Wow, thanks for the great giveaway!!!

  • Ben Silvers

    These look awesome!

  • Marco Campos

    The only bad thing about my current Xero Shoes is that I can not wear them at work. Problem solved!

  • Anna Bearne

    The timing is perfect. My gym does not allow exercising barefoot or in sandals. I was just looking for good, flat, minimalist shoes for working out, and this popped up 🙂 I have the xero sandals and I love them, can’t wait to try these on.

  • Aaron Chancey

    Love my Z-trails! Can’t wait to pick up (or hopefully win?) a pair of the Ipari Hana!

  • Joelle Smith

    I want to be the hippest (and most comfortable) old lady at the office. My Xero sandals and tabi socks are close, but the new Ipari Hana will take it over the top!

  • ZAck Stevens

    I have been a huge fan of the originals and taken them on 6 month backpacking trips. I love this company and their product. Thanks for the special offer! Hope I get a pair!!

  • It says in the video: Canvas and microfiber upper… rubber sole (with our 5,000 mile sole warranty). For a product like this leather doesn’t inherently last longer.

  • disqus_N4uNBuLVg6

    It’s getting cooooooold in Michigan! (and I am a cold-weather wuss!)

  • Pia Monsanto

    I am on my feet all day at work, and I haven’t been able to find a comfortable work shoe yet. Really hoping the Ipari Hana has the answer! My feet are killing me!

  • David Friedhoff

    I’ve been needing some new shoes for work and these look perfect.

  • John Agwazim

    Nice. Thanks.

  • Logan Harris

    How does the lacing system on these shoes work?

  • Holly Yoho

    They look really cool, and comfy!

  • Bob Westenhousen

    Just curious, for those that order on the 17th, do they get the discount? The discount is tallied by the total points on the 18th, but anyone on the vip list can order on the 17th.

  • Pam

    I’m wondering how these would feel in a 5K race? I have my first WI winter race in Jan., and I’m not sure my feet would like the Xeroshoes sandals that I *always* run in….

  • Chocolata Majora

    They look so comfy. I’m always looking for shoes I can be active in that look good and wear well.

  • JlROD

    They look so cool!

  • Simon Oh

    Finally my wife is willing to try Xero because of Ipari Hana

  • Bluecanoe37

    I can’t wait to try these on!!

  • MindyandEric Upton

    I REALLY love how these look. And the price seems totally legit. I’ve been wearing some Soft Stars during the colder months, but they don’t look nearly as cool as these new Hanas!

  • Ricardo

    i want it!!

  • Heather Fehr

    Will they fit hobbit feet?

  • Avihai Bar

    Cool promo

  • Spencer

    Supper pumped for these shoes!!!

  • Brenda Witherspoon-Bedard

    oohhh They look so comfy <3 xoxo

  • Brandi Ireland

    Very excited to try these. My sandals are getting a bit cold.

  • gayle b

    These look perfect, I’d love to give them a try!

  • Andrew Purvis

    So excited!!

  • TBC

    I’m pretty intrigued!

  • Lisa Coomer Queen

    I want to be the first one in York, SC with a pair! Thanks!

  • Johnny

    How is it with socks for cold weather?

  • Lah Fookies

    My little piggies need some love from the cold drizzle of the Pacific Northwest!

  • David

    ..most gyms and workplaces require closed toe shoes, so these will be super!

  • Winnie Talbert Kortemeier

    ooooooh yeah! Now my geology classes at the community college won’t feel like they have to collect money to buy me shoes each semester!

  • Amanda

    The tops of my feet become VERY sensitive when playing jianzi. I always have to put on an old pair of gym shoes in place of my xeroes, but my toes don’t fit in them anymore. I’ve been looking for something that would help out and THIS IS IT. I’m stoked to continue supporting this company after years as a happy customer.

  • Brandon

    Rome can be wet and surprisingly chilly in the winter and I think these will be the perfect solution!

  • Jim Porter

    Why is it that so many athletic shoe makers think my toes should be curved up instead of a neutral position?
    Looking forward to trying this truly Xero-drop design!

  • Jacob Kugler

    Wonder how soon there’s gonna be a shoe for cold weather..? 🙂

  • Xabi Ochotorena

    Can’t wait to try them out!

  • Eric Anderson

    Winter’s coming, gotta keep those toes warm

  • Xzavier Alexander

    Ohh.. I like these!! If they’re what I expected, I’ll have to buy other colors! And for a woman I do have a pretty wide foot, not to mention, I’d love to be able to wear my toe correctors in them!
    I’ll probably do everything that I usually do in my other Xero Shoes, running, biking, hiking, day-to-day wear, but I’ll also be able to go to church, and work, and climb, and do all the things I couldn’t do before in them… plus new colors!
    Why give them to me? One, because if I like them, I’ll buy more. Two, because I tell a lot of people about the products I love. And finally, because, helping people get back to better feet and knowing that they’re going to go on adventures and live this crazy and amazing life in this invention of yours gives you a small sense of purpose and proudness. I’m sure that’s what these shoes will get out of them.
    It’s good to feel the earth again. And they’re vegan!

  • Brian Sullivan

    Yay 15% off!

  • Kara-Leigh Parritt

    Entering for my husband. He loves barefoot running; but since moving back to the US, from Germany, he has found it a challenge, as the roads and trails aren’t as kept, where we live. He’s been searching for years for the right shoes and these seem perfect!

  • aademirci

    Counting for days!

  • Christine Woolhouse

    Totally entering for myself! It is so wonderful to find minimalist shoes that are reasonably priced! And cute, and wearable for many activities!

  • Phillip Richar

    Can’t wait to try these.

  • Lauren hughes

    These look amazing!

  • Pål

    2 degrees celsius today…so sandals are out,so to speak

    Good time to get some funky new,nonrestrictive shoes 😀

  • Tom Tanner

    Love the sandals, looking forward to these.

  • Taylor Bruce

    More and more excited everyday.

  • Erin Hall

    I love my sandals! I know I’ll love these shoes more!

  • Patrick

    I want those shoes…

  • Russell Oliphant

    I found xero shoes earlier this year and have worn them ever since. I rarely wear anything else. Only when I need something closed. Now I don’t have to wear anything else ever 🙂

  • William Schultz

    When I tried the sandals, they became my favorite footwear. I wonder if these will surpass them.

  • Marisa Moon

    I am so excited! My husband needs minimalist shoes but wanted something closed toe. This is perfect timing for Christmas! I hope you’ll have something in tan, or a lighter color. Will the new colors be out by Christmas? These look great! How many millimeters is the sole? I love your sandals. I wish the straps were a little shorter so I can tighten them more without the straps touching the ground, but I may try another style for more active days. I still love them.

    • Marisa Moon

      5 millimeter sole, got it!

  • Logan

    I’m predicting with 100% certainty this will be my favorite pair of shoes.

  • Bryan Wetzel

    Almost there.

  • Josh Schriever

    Since I got Xero sandals, I’ve hardly worn anything else. Now I need these!

  • Yomar

    Well I will Love to get this shoes im 18 y/o im from Puerto Rico and now im preparing to leave and Travel the World feel free in every aspect of the word and i lknow this shoes are going to make it complete being able to feel the earth move freely while having the most sexy looking show arround what mora can you ask for?? Im excited to start This new Chapter in my life this new adventure and the Hana will be mi Fiel compañero ^.^! I cant wait to get them

  • Cara

    Hooray! Your sandals are the best, but not so much in New England in winter!

  • Aristotled

    awesome!

  • Sonia

    I will wear Ipari Hana while shoveling snow!

  • Todd Burnside

    Looking forward to trying these. Then, I’ll just need something for wet cold. When I lived in Fairbanks, AK, I wore Steger mukluks most of the winter, which was like wearing big slippers. Here in the Pacific Northwest, though, it’s too wet to wear them.

    • JC S

      So very true

  • TimberWolf

    I am usually barefoot, but if footwear is required I wear Xeros…unless I’m at the shooting range, because they require closed-toe shoes…that problem is solved with the Hana!

  • Jonathan Deering

    I have watched several reviews and I simply cannot wait. I have never been excited for a shoe before!

    • JC S

      I’ve been watching the reviews on youtube myself, and I’m with you on the excitement part.

  • Tyrexl050 .

    Almost half way there to 20% Maybe I’ll get two if we get there! 🙂

  • Allie M.

    Always a fan of barefoot shoes, can’t wait to check these ones out!

  • Andrea Franklin

    I’m optimistic that this new shoe would work for my husband! And looking forward to the women’s version in the spring!

  • Jason Maxfield

    I will wear these all winter long.

  • Looking forward to seeing and trying the latest from Xero!

  • Jeremy Thomas

    Looking forward to wearing these new shoes!

  • William Jones

    I’ve been wearing my z-treks for almost 2 years for everything from hiking to biking. I’d even wear them to work if they would let me. Of course that is exactly what I’ll do with my new pair of Ipari Hands ?

  • Aimee Christensen

    I like the versatile look of these shoes, my husband and I are pretty loyal to our xero shoes sandals, I hope these hold up as well as our sandals have for running!

  • Neal Caburian

    I have a pair of the Amuri Z-Treks and love them. Only gripe is that I can’t wear them during the colder months of the year. Can’t wait to get my pair of Ipari Hanas!

  • Becky

    I just received my first pair of Xeros today and already know they are going to become my favorite pair of shoes. I absolutely love how light they are.

  • Corry Lehmann

    I love how incredibly lightweight Xero shoes are!

  • Chris Kendall

    I love my xero shoes for how light they are and how much they have helped stregthen my ankles and knee’s, so excited for the new Hana!

  • Erik Berk

    Love the way the shoes look. If they are as comfortable as my DIY sandals they will be a great replacement of my worn out Merrell vapor gloves that have holes in them since I haven’t been able to find a good replacement shoe that is not as loud (they are bright green). These will be great since I can’t wear my DIY sandals in the lab because I need closed toed shoes. Can’t wait to try them.

  • Bernard Wrangle

    I’ve tried several minimalist shoes, some I’ve loved and some have been less than satisfactory, but Ipari Hana is by far the best looking and looks to be the best wearing!

  • Will Andrew

    I’m a very flat-footed guy who is also tall, athletic and likes to do lots of different activities. My feet get sore pretty quickly and I blame a lot of the pain I experience on user error (me!) and on poor equipment for my body/purpose. I know that this time idea probably will never happen with xero shoes, but I’ve always had pain riding on SPD and 3-bolt cleated shoes made for road and mountain cycling. If xero shoes came out with a more minimal, while still effective, cleated type shoe for bikers, I know that would be awesome. Ask most any biker, their feet hurt at the end of ride in cleats. Thanks for the updates, hope your year is great!

  • Amy Chills

    What!!! These shoes look amazing. My boyfriend actually mentioned these as a birthday present for him….but let’s be honest, my birthday comes first:……so, yea.

  • Adam FURR DOGG Swanson

    These “shoes” would be my daily go to.
    I would wear these to my job, i would wear them with my friend, Bob.
    i would wear them to the bar, i would walk both near and far.
    I would wear them outside, or maybe even on an evening bike ride.
    Id wear them on my feet, mmm mmm, what a treat.
    Thank you Xero for the amazing chance, if i win i will do a happy dance.

  • Logan Harris

    I’m really excited about the wide toe box of the Hana shoes!

  • Eric Scheidler

    Exciting! I’ve been hoping for something like this!

  • CN Romaine

    Are we there?

  • Ricardo

    very cute! i want it!

  • P David

    I like the lacing system. Exactly how thick is the sole?

    • Samantha Knowlton

      5mm sole, from the video I watched on it.

  • I love all of the minimal options that are available these days and am at the point where I need a new pair of shoes…so this is good timing!

    I did a lot of barefoot running since my middle school and high school days; when the Five Fingers came to the states, I was an early adopter for my every day shoe. (Wasn’t a huge fan of running in them though; they stank enough just walking around.) It was a great conversation starter for the first few years when I’d go to conferences, but then they became mainstream and other companies started putting out decent shoes with wider toe-boxes and lower heels so I started wearing some Merrell’s (which meant my wife wasn’t as embarrassed to be seen with me…)

    The Merrell’s are falling apart, and it’s getting to that time of year when I’m not going to be able to wear my Z-Trail sandals everywhere anymore, so I’ll have to pick up a pair of these. Looking forward to the launch!

  • Ryo Rashak

    Ooooh, this shoe!! XD

  • Samuel Costa

    Can’t wait for these shoes!

  • Elias

    Looks like a great new design! How is the canvas upper for breath-ability and in wet conditions?

    • Bob Westenhousen

      Also curious about how they handle the wet conditions.

    • smwinn7

      Breathability shouldn’t be an issue I don’t think with the canvas

  • Andrew Purvis

    I love the design!

  • Just what I need!

  • We’ve had people wear CorrectToes with the Hana.

  • Brandi Ireland

    Let’s go 20% off!

  • Samantha Knowlton

    Love this shoe! I hope the men’s sizes go small enough for a women’s 7 wide…

  • Justin Hamby

    Started with the DIY kits. Made my son’s first pair of shoes out of a DIY kit. Currently do everything outside of work in the z trek (getting ztrail soon). And now you have something I can wear to work and perhaps even pull off for dress casual events. You guys are awesome.

  • Robert Herrera

    I am excited about these!

  • JlROD

    I want all three colors!

  • Missina Germain

    Which template do we use the measure our foot size to order the Hana? Z-trek/trail or cloud/venture? Or do we wait for a new one when the Hana is released?

    • @WhereIsHopper

      I am wondering the same thing. Now with only 2 days left before the VIP order date, I am ready to figure out which size I will be ordering.

  • MrMonkeyMonk

    While I love Lems (I’m customer #20), I think they’ve strayed a little bit from their original focus. They used to sell Correct Toes alongside the shoes, but I’ve noticed my last pair is a bit narrower than my first, and where the upper on my original Stems was the most comfortable I’ve ever felt, the newer pair feels more constraining.

    That said, I’m _really_ looking forward to the Ipari Hanas and having the same ground feel as my Treks throughout the winter.

  • Matthew Lara

    I can’t wait till these come out! 🙂

  • Jimi Walsh

    I can’t wait for these!!!

  • Clarence Say

    Let’s keep these points rolling!

  • Samuel Ray Broom

    Hell yes. I’ve always wanted some Xeros but my feet stink pretty bad by midday. This way I could wear them all year in Chicago too! Awesome price point!

  • TBC

    The reviews look pretty good.

  • Darkfox Bill

    I really gotta get a pair of these. They’re exactly the type of thing I’ve been looking for. I own nothing but sandals and old hiking shoes and while It never gets cold enough in Vegas for me to actually need to cover my feet It makes finding a job rather difficult.

  • Grace

    I’ve been wanting some barefoot shoes, and these look amazing!

  • C Marie

    Awesome

  • Erik

    Perhaps there’s interest for a full on business style version!? I would sure love one.

  • Kristi

    These look awesome! Nice design, and super functional

  • Dennis Jarrel

    So excited to get my first pair of Xeroshoes! And the Hana seems like the perfect pair to start with!

  • Keith

    These are the shoes I’ve been waiting for! With a wide foot, closed toed minimalist shoes are hard to find!

  • Pål

    The more I look at these,the more I want them….think I may be a zeroshoe addict 😀

  • Logan

    2 more days!

  • Wes

    Stoked to get my xero shoes, heard great things!

  • Rey Arias

    My barefoot arsenal includes, Vivobarefoot for casual, Inov8 for running and Luna Sandals for hanging. On my last visit to the States I swooped a pair of Xero Shoes and they rock! They’ve been kicking butt down here in Paraguay! Can’t wait to put these new bad boys on my feet!

  • Brandon

    Here we go! Only two more days?

  • Xzavier Alexander

    Ohh.. I like these!! If they’re what I expected, I’ll have to buy other colors! And for a woman I do have a pretty wide foot, not to mention, I’d love to be able to wear my toe correctors in them!

    I want the Ipari Hana so I can suprise everyone when I rocket past them in a pair of casual looking shoes that are really adventure shoes in disguise.

  • Jason Maxfield

    More comments for entries.

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    A running sandal in disguise. Looks like a normal shoe, but sooooo much more!!

  • Ryo Rashak

    Perfect barefoot shoe!

I know this because, like a kid, I keep checking into Xero site to read people’s comments. AND, now that here in NoCal we’ve had our first rain … I LOVE being ‘barefoot’ in my Venture’s in the rain. The new Hana , for me, will allow me to be ‘undercover barefoot’ at the office.

  • Natalie

    I can only wear barefoot shoes after ankle surgery 8 years ago. Didn’t think I’d ever be able to run again without pain. But I have…and in the Do It Yourself Xero Shoes! Hoping for a close-toed barefoot shoe for year around living!

  • smwinn7

    these are going to be great shoes for the winter months

  • Sonia

    Shark Tank folks are crying themselves to sleep for not investing in Xero Shoes. ?

  • Logan Harris

    I like the hint of orange on the black Hanas

    • Joel Fregia

      Me too. They look great!

  • Andrew Purvis

    These shoes are gonna be LIT

  • Lauren hughes

    Can’t wait to try!!

  • Wes Hardee

    Dang, I can’t wait for these.

  • Russell Oliphant

    Can’t wait to order a pair

  • Taylor K

    My fiancé hasn’t stopped talking about these new Hana shoes since he first saw them, so I had to check them out. We are both l dying for a pair of these shoes. We have both hiked mountains in our DIY xero sandals for a while now. Everyone always asks us how we can hike in them, it’s obviously because they have never tried them! We love recommending Xeros to others because they have truly been a life changer for us both!!

  • Roee Raifeld

    MORE DISCOUNT! 🙂

  • Jacob Kugler

    I’m so excited! and I just can’t hide it! 🙂

    would love to get a pair so I can freakin show them off during live TV broadcast or youtube wearing my birthday suit

  • Corry Lehmann

    Love the design of these shoes!

  • Bluecanoe37

    Love the style!

  • Cheech Sorilla

    I’ve been wearing a pair New Balance WT10s (discontinued and really hard to find) for over a year so I could have a minimalist shoe for work. Happy to see Xero come out with a closed toe shoe because I’d rather be wearing my Amuri Ventures everyday!

  • Jose Madrid

    These look like they can replace my Kinvaras!

  • Bernard Wrangle

    Excited about a good, closed toe, minimalist shoe option!

  • Alison Frisby

    These look great, I cannot wait to get a pair!

  • k_measell

    Ready to kick it with the Ipari Hanas
    Fresh soles, splayed toes, like a virgin-Madonna
    Shoes barely there, can go anywhere
    Uptown, on the trail, people stop to stare
    Never seen such a thing, like Bigfoot givin’ birth
    Me and Sasquatch we be feelin’ the Earth
    All day, every day I’ll be able to play-like Ipari not Atari, no appologies, not sorry
    I live that barefoot life, no strife, in the flow-Ipari Hanas everywhere I go
    Major props to the crew at Xero
    Big feet clap ya’ll are my hero
    You dialed up in the market-way up to seven
    Please choose me to win I wear a size eleven!

  • Kent

    I cannot wait for the release of these shoes!

    It would be great to have the same feel as my Ventures in a closed toe!

    So excited for the new shoes.

  • Todd

    Looks like a great replacement for my trail gloves

  • Patrick

    Love my Z-trails but I cannot wear them at work. Now, a pair of Hana’s will be perfect.

  • Ollin

    What WOULDN’T I do in the Ipari Hana?! Other than what I’ve already day-dreamed of doing in them and shared here (parkour, body percussion, and just being myself through using shoes that reflect that) they could also accompany me -whenever circumstances allow and when not barefoot- in the new learning adventure I’ve deciding to begin next year: becoming a forest ranger while walking the widths of a 86 hectare nature reserve… being able to feel the world(s) I encounter along the way… can I say ooooohhhh?!

  • MattM

    Living through Minnesota winters requires closed-toe shoes and these look sexy! I LOVE my Z-trails, so these are the next logical step.

  • Cougar Mathis

    Sick of being told I can’t enter a gym because of my sandals…I need these!!!!

  • Cougar Mathis

    My Sergeant Major put a hit out on me because of my “unauthorized shoes” (Amuri Z Trek). Help me keep my military leadership off my back!

  • Amanda W

    I’ve sooooo been waiting for a closed-toe minimal shoe that won’t squeeze across my toes, but won’t fall off my heel! Maybe these will be it? As far as Xeros sizing…I tried the women’s Z-Trek (love the style) but just a bit too narrow across my toes (was so disappointed), but heel fits. I’m concerned the men’s size would be too wide on my heel. (I tried the women’s on at Shoe Station store, but they didn’t have the men’s to try.) Soooo dunno if the Ipari Hana would work for me either. ??? (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!)

  • Ric Moxley

    if the shoe is as comfortable as the sandal, this is gonna rock

  • jtwalters

    Do you have size templates available before they’re being sold?

  • Kaitlyn taylor

    I really like the style of these

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    I’m waiting for the black on black for a more formal look – but otherwise these look great!!!

  • Clarence Say

    Looking forward to seeing these on the street!

  • Pål

    Yup new day,still excited 😀

    +1

  • Gluckenstucken

    Nifty!

  • Mel S

    Wonder if the colors will be the same for women’s shoes?

  • Tyrexl050 .

    I hope there will be more colors for the men and maybe some more fun colors for the women. My gf says they look comfy, but she’s not on board with the colors.

  • JoshandCharity

    I love the look of these. I am hoping to do lots of running, lifting, cooking, hiking, and yoga in these. Thanks for finally coming out with closed toed minimalist shoes… that don’t have the five-fingered glove look!

  • phisch

    They look awesome!

  • Josh Schriever

    With winter coming on I need something warmer than sandals!

  • Brandon

    From hiking in the hills of Western Wisconsin to walking (and running) the streets of Rome, Italy to power lifting at a gym anywhere. My Xero shoes have been faithful companions, rain or shine; warm or cold; city or rough country. I can’t wait for the new closed Xero shoes…tomorrow is the big day!

  • Justin

    Can’t wait for the new xeroshoe

  • smwinn7

    So happy these are launching I’ve been hoping for something like this

  • Don Hardeman

    I just watched multiple videos of independent reviews of the Hana, which were all great! I cant wait to try them myself!

  • yoa78

    I’m looking forward to wedding a pair of Xero Shoes in the fall and a closed toe shoe will do the job just nicely!

  • David Edwards

    These look like a great casual barefooot option that is super minimal, low-key styling, and extremely low to the ground!

  • Amanda W

    I’ve sooooo been waiting for a closed-toe minimal shoe that won’t squeeze across my toes, but won’t fall off my heel! Maybe these will be it? As far as Xeros sizing…I tried the women’s Z-Trek (love the style) but just a bit too narrow across my toes (was so disappointed), but heel fits. I’m concerned the men’s size would be too wide on my heel. (I tried the women’s on at Shoe Station store, but they didn’t have the men’s to try.) Soooo dunno if the Ipari Hana would work for me either. ??? (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!)

  • Naseer

    Ran a Half marathon in Sandals today. Thanks to xeroshoes, i have fit enough ankles and feet to make the distance without stopping. I hope the shoes lives up to the same standards.

  • Ami Pinnick

    These would he amazing! Can’t wear my Xero’s to work, so a closed shoe would solve that issue! Especially since this doesn’t have a traditional tennis shoe appearance – which is also not allowed at work. Can’t wait!!

  • Ryo Rashak

    Can wear these anywhere!

  • bcnaon

    Looks like these could work for me. I have a pair of Z-Treks which I unfortunately ordered too large but I still wore them everyday I could in the summer, they just don’t do too well on technical hikes. I also have two pairs of Merrell barefoot shoes which don’t fit very well, they have a big arch which doesn’t line up with my arch causing pressure on the edges.

  • thecoopersmith

    After bashing my friends for the last year about their foot coffins I’m not sure what they’ll say… but they do look pretty cool. I can wear them on the one cold day we get in South Florida.

    • Renn Meuwissen

      haha same my friends ridicule me for wearing sandals all the time, so i joke about their shoes…

  • CMoore

    The new shoes look great. Can’t wait to get a pair.

  • Corry Lehmann

    The perfect “shoe” that don’t feel like shoes!

  • Quinn

    Don’t own a pair yet but love everything I’ve seen/ heard!

  • Anne

    Looking forward to some happy feet,

  • Logan

    Tomorrow is the day!

    Hari, Hari, Apari – skeletal misalignment – you need xero enlightenment – feeling old & tired – put on a pair, no need to be retired – do you know ipari hana – is the true Mana

  • Brandi Ireland

    Can’t wait to get my feet in these!

  • MaryAnn Jz Cowan

    my xero amuri clouds are worn to nubs! what? a closed barefoot shoe to wear in cooler weather? believe you me, I push the envelope with wearing my sandals! this is partly due to being a transplant florida chick… I want to be barefoot all…the…time!

  • Shane Steinkamp

    I’m definitely going to wear the black at work, and they’ll be great for colder weather too.

  • Dennis Jarrel

    Just watched the Livestream! So excited!

  • Stephanie Martin

    I’m relearning how to walk after a foot/ankle surgery! I’d love to do some of my relearning in a pair oh Hana’s! Stylish, zero drop and enough protection to facilitate relearning my gait!

  • Elizabeth Poole Norlina

    Thanks so much great shoes…

  • Erik Jose-Valentino Garcia

    get on my feet!

  • Elizabeth

    I’m a transplanted barefoot florida girl too! Now i wont have to wear my z-treks in the snow!

    I was so close to ordering some shoes from vivobarefoot; I think I’ll wait…. 🙂

  • George Harris

    I love your sandals I think these will be awesome

  • Sally Buer

    Decided this Sunday morning to jump on a plane and fly in from New York City to buy them! Can hardly wait. Reasons to buy…gray is my favorite color. Another reason to buy these incredibly cool-looking shoes…I want everyone in Manhattan to see them, be jealous, ask me about them, and have me tell them how to order them from my friend Steven!

  • Taylor K

    Can’t wait for these new Hana shoes! Love them ❤️

  • Neal Caburian

    A great looking casual barefoot shoe! FINALLY!!

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    happy feet – happy life!!!

  • Donovan Owens

    This looks like an interesting minimal shoe. Looking forward to having them on my feet.

  • Yaron Raz

    now there is no excuse for having a “cold feet”

  • Xabi Ochotorena

    Looking for my new go-to, everyday, comfy and goodloking shoes

  • Teresa Morgan-Kenney Young

    Bring on the cold weather! My toes will be happy in the Ipari Hana I win!

  • Just Curious

    Look forward to running in these shoes during the Minnesota winter.

  • Tim

    According to the Q&A it seems like I indeed have to stay up this night to order the shoes. 😛

  • Eric Anderson

    No need to ‘re-tie my Xero shoes to fit over socks this winter!

  • Brandon

    They are coming soon!!

  • Kevin K Tran

    SOOO EXCITING

  • Raw Conditioning

    wearing Ipari thru wind, sun, sweat, snow – winning a pair, a blessing, my heart glow

  • I’m constantly checking my email looking for my VIP email. Gahhh the suspense!!!

  • Pam

    I signed up for VIP, so today’s the big day…. Are we waiting for a special e-mail inviting us to buy? I haven’t gotten anything yet….

    • Neither have I. Hopefully soon! I would assume we will get a special email link

      • Pam

        Thanks! I just wanted to be sure I wasn’t the only one! 🙂

        • Watching the replay of the live discussion. Says 9am don’t know what timezone. Getting closer though!

      • Pam

        Got the e-mail! 🙂

        • Pam

          Boo–they didn’t make a size small enough for me! 🙁

          • Dang… I was able to order up two of my gigantic 13’s. Site was iffy for a few minutes. I think we overloaded it

  • Keith

    I was really hoping to get the 20% off. Doesn’t look like it’s going to happen. Now a question, now long is the “launch special”? Is it through 10/31 or what?

  • Surfdogs

    It’s Monday morning here in California. And like other’s awoke expecting email VIP notice. Hmm … and yes, checked last night before retiring. Thinking it’s already Monday in other time zones. Being a bit neurotic here. Love my sandals. Don’t love my consumerism ‘locked in’ feeling. Time to ready for work. And, not in the ‘fly from NY to Colorado to buy a pair’ club. Peace to all.

  • So for anyone who can’t or doesnt have the time to watch the live discussion. VIP emails should be sent between 9 and 10 am Mountain Time.

    • CHAD

      ahh thank you! I was sitting here wondering where my email was!

  • ZAck Stevens

    Hopefully they do not sell out right away!

  • smwinn7

    I didn’t know about this flash sale today, must not be a VIP

  • Evelyn

    Waiting with bated breath for the VIP email. . .

  • Nathan Boyd

    I cannot wait!!
    Bring on the Hana!!!!

  • Reid

    I cannot wait to get my iPari Hanas so that I can take them on my 4 month backpacking trip through South America!

  • David

    I feel like those techno dorks at Apple store doors prior to a launch. Can I REALLY be feeling like this re shoes? Oh part practical-just designated my Innov-8s as lawn mowing shoes Saturday, so please get these moving!

  • Don Hardeman

    A pair of Hanas look like the perfect replacement for shoes that need to be retired!

  • Casey

    This is going to be a long hour waiting for this email.

  • Logan

    Ready to buy!

  • Steve Snyder

    I’m ready, bring the hana on!

  • Samantha Knowlton

    Ah, what a shame – they don’t go small enough to fit a women’s 7w. Now I’ll just wait eagerly for the Lana in the spring!

    • Pam

      I am really disappointed too. The smallest size is about 3/4-in. too long. 🙁

  • Seth Longacre

    It’s after 9am in Colorado, when will they be available to buy?? (Not to pressure you, but we’re excited!)

  • Sandal sizing is more forgiving (you can adjust +/- a size with the tension in the heel strap). There will be sizing templates for the Hana that you can use to find the correct size.

  • check your email now 😉

  • That’s how we designed it. Check your foot against the sizing templates that will be posted on the Hana order page.

  • Brandi Ireland

    Ready to buy!

  • Pål

    Ordered….now the waiting game begins….*grumble mumble* o.O

    • Evelyn

      You’re lucky! Email hasn’t hit my inbox yet. . .

  • Alec

    These look awesome! I’ve needed a new shoe.

  • Clarence Say

    Definitely might need to add this to my pack!

  • Looking forward to my first purchase from Xero Shoes. Because the huaraches I purchased from Invisible Shoes held up so well I haven’t had a need. I bought that kit 5 years ago and I’ve worn them at least 4 days a week since. Can’t wait to try on Hana.

  • bcnaon

    They are ready to buy, I’m in!

  • Purple Diode

    Can you please make them in smaller sizes? (I.e. starting from size 6 women’s). There are many women who’d love to buy them now, if only their size were available.

  • Bryan Wetzel

    Posting for the chance to win….

  • Chris Kendall

    I cant wait to order these, in fact I wont, going to order now and if I win a free pair its a extra bonus!! lalala best ever!

  • unci narynin

    Big feet for the win. Possible this will be the only shoes I ever wear.

  • Xzavier Alexander

    Ohh.. I like these!! If they’re what I expected, I’ll have to buy other colors! And for a woman I do have a pretty wide foot, not to mention, I’d love to be able to wear my toe correctors in them!
    I’ll probably do everything that I usually do in my other Xero Shoes, running, biking, hiking, day-to-day wear, but I’ll also be able to go to church, and work, and climb, and do all the things I couldn’t do before in them… plus new colors!
    Why give them to me? One, because if I like them, I’ll buy more. Two, because I tell a lot of people about the products I love. And finally, because, helping people get back to better feet and knowing that they’re going to go on adventures and live this crazy and amazing life in this invention of yours gives you a small sense of purpose and proudness. I’m sure that’s what these shoes will get out of them.
    It’s good to feel the earth again. And they’re vegan!
    Love your business, certainly love supporting it! =) – Xzavier Alexander

  • Josh

    I don’t have them yet but they look awesome for the type of trail running that I do to train for my job as a Wildland firefighter!

  • Lisa Coomer Queen

    They are so pretty!

  • Ollin

    Going to the local garden center with my 5 year old nephew. How I wish I could go in a pair of Ipari Hana. He’d probably ask about my new shoes and I would certainly explain. I do so anyway, about being barefoot and being ‘barefoot’…

  • Knotme

    Wow! The server was/is slammed! I kept getting time-out errors, so took me an hour to get all the way through check-out!

    • We’re getting HAMMERED! Trying to get things back up to speed asap!

  • Karl Kantor

    Only one more day, and I can at least get them pre-ordered.

  • Sonia

    Just ordered the brown/black. Can’t wait for their arrival! I will take the day off just to spend it with my beloved Hana.

  • CN Romaine

    Are we there yet?

  • Evelyn

    VIP email still hasn’t arrived at nearly 2pm central, but given the server overload, I guess it doesn’t really matter. . . Just please don’t run out!

  • Ben Doke

    Just got the email…I plan to order tonight. 🙂

  • Stephanie Martin

    VIP email! hooray! server is having issues but hopefully those are settling…

  • Alexa12364

    Why do you not recommend using this shoe as a running shoe? (As stated on the order page) I usually run in zero drop shoes like merrels or skora. I’ve even used my vans before. So I wanted to try this shoe for running. Why not? Thanks in advance <3

    • You *can* run in them, but running shoes have extra support on the sides, and the lacing provides more support across the instep. That’s why we say the Hana is a casual shoe.

  • Charles Coutu

    Je suis ravis des produits que fabrique Xeroshoes et j’espère pouvoir me procurer une pair de Hana

  • Daniela

    I need them…….will spread the great thin here in Europe :).

  • sser

    Yes! Excited to try these out and hope I get the size right (doubt there will be any left to exchange for!).

  • Olivier Maillette

    J’adore mes sandale Xeroshoes, elles me suivent partout, j’ai fait pleins de voyages avec eux, elles ont traversées le sentier des inca au Pérou, qui se rend au Matchu Pitchu, par exemple. Merci à Xeroshoes et j’ai bien hâte de me procurer les Hana, ils semblent vraiment super.

  • Charley

    Still haven’t gotten my vip email 🙁 hope they dont run out!

    • Charley

      I found out that it went to my junk mail folder. Checked the sizing chart and noticed that I called for a half size smaller on the hana vs the z trails. Printed the template and I thought that it was too narrow. Especially if I wear these with socks (winter.) Ended up going back up to a 7 just like I wear in the z trails. Template fit looks good. We will see when I get the shoes. Got my order completed though. Thanks for the opportunity to order a day early. 🙂

    • Evelyn

      Mine didn’t come either, spam or otherwise 🙁 I might set an alarm for midnight!

  • Kat Mandu

    I normally wear Vivobarefoot close-toed shoes, but I am excited to try these. They look like great shoes for the winter. Can’t wait to wear these guys to work/in the woods/in the city!

  • Kristi

    Would love to kick around in these shoes, love barefoot footwear! Got started with Xero shoes years ago with the huarache kit and have hiked miles in them.

  • Courtney Holloway

    I need a pair of these. They’re not shoes; they’re foot jackets! My feet are always cold and are always getting stubbed, so I need a pair of these “foot jackets” to wrap my piggies in!

  • MG

    I’ve been needing a pair of casual minimalist shoes. Just ordered my Hana’s from the VIP list! Cannot wait to compare these to Vivo’s.

  • Heather

    Can’t wait for the contest drawing! 😀

  • Heather

    We are not far away from 60,00 entries and 20% off!!

  • Russell Oliphant

    I love Xero Shoes

  • Corry Lehmann

    The Xero Shoe is the perfect shoe!

  • Bob Westenhousen

    Any chance of adding cheaper shipping options? I’d rather save $5 and wait on my shoes a bit longer with First Class/Economy than paying $10 for Priority. I did go ahead and order a pair because I didn’t want them to sell out, but I may want to order a second pair down the road.

    • We don’t control the shipping prices. First Class is only available for packages under one pound, and the Hana boxes are slightly more than a pound.

      • Bob Westenhousen

        Thank you for responding. I knew my last orders shipped first class for $5 so I was curious why it wasn’t available for this product. I didn’t think about these being over the first class weight limit.

  • Brian Sullivan

    How many ballots do I get for ordering the shoes?

  • Phil Tobin

    Just ordered a pair! Looking forward to trying them out.

  • Bernard Wrangle

    Getting close to the release!

  • Jenny Rappleye

    I feel that I have been searching for these shoes my whole life! 🙂

  • Heidi

    Darn, my feet are too small for the men’s version. Anxiously awaiting the women’s version next spring! Loved getting a glimpse on last night’s FB Live and appreciated Steven taking time on a Sunday night to fill us in!

  • JlROD

    Ready to buy, I can’t decide what color, too cool the three variations!

  • Logan Harris

    I think I’m gonna go with the brown ones!

  • twd3

    Cool! 20% off!

  • Winnie Talbert Kortemeier

    I’ve already got the hair, now I need the shoes! #keepingupwiththeSashens

  • MattM

    Now comes the question: will these fit my super low profile feet? I have to tie my v1 Trail Gloves all the way tight.

  • What I love the most about Xero’s shoes is how comfortable and natural feeling they are.
    I love how you can feel the ground beneath your feet when you walk.That’s so awesome!! 🙂

  • Matt Riney

    The Hana is a beautiful casual barefoot shoe. I love my Z-Trail, but with winter coming up, I’m very excited for these shoes to be released. Looks like a great work shoe also, barefoot and attractive!

  • Fernando

    How will sizes run for the shoes? & will there be different widths? Most shoes that have a wide toe box,aren’t always big enough.

    • We’ll have sizing templates posted on the product detail page for the Hana

  • Andy Frevert

    I would use these for almost anything. they look cool for everyday wear but I would also use these for practicing martial arts and yoga, hiking, running, and I’d wear them to the gym too. I like that they’re leather because they’ll be durable and comfortable even in winter. I’m really hoping this will finally be the barefoot shoe that gives my forefoot the width it needs. I hope you keep making more shoes like this 🙂

  • Really like the design look of these, esp the dark version with the orange lacing.

  • Patrick O’Connor

    I gotta have a pair! I need something to cover my hobbit feet!

  • Samuel R

    It’s October 18th! Take my money 😀

  • Evelyn

    I still have no VIP email, and I don’t see a non-VIP place to purchase, though it is October 18th.

  • Larry Bass

    Just ordered my Ipari Hanas!!!! My feet are sooooo excited!!

  • Brandon

    Just ordered from sister site out of the UK; Italian fashion won’t know what hit it!

  • Logan Harris

    I do wish there were other shipping options. I would rather pay less than 13$ for shipping and wait a bit longer for the shoes to arrive.

  • smwinn7

    Didn’t realize the pre sale was going to be yesterday oh well

  • Mary

    Has anyone in the US been able to order these from the website yet? I didn’t get an email or anything (just signed up for the newsletter yesterday).

    • Evelyn

      Nope. No VIP email, no order page.

    • Bob Westenhousen

      Yes, I got both the early VIP e-mail two days ago, and the other e-mail yesterday, and was able to place my order a couple of days ago. Since you only signed up for the newsletter a couple of days ago, you probably weren’t in the queue yet to get them. You should definitely be able to purchase them now though, make sure you’re on the actual product page and not this one.

  • Logan

    Can’t wait to get mine in the mail!

  • Boris Plotkin

    Can’t wait to try it!

  • Frank Cienniwa

    I’ve been waiting for just this thing! I love the sandals, but need a cold weather alternative. I’m just not old enough to do the socks and sandals thing! LOL!

  • Bryan Wetzel

    Will these be available in different materials eventually?

  • Clarence Say

    Super cool!

  • Dan

    Cool! Love my sandals, should love the shoes

  • Wei

    That awesome moment when you realise you found the perfect shoes for my coming asia backpacking trip… My feet are going love them!

  • Lance Masserant

    I’ve been searching for years to find the perfect minimal shoe, and the best I could find were the Amuri Z-trek, which are pretty darn awesome but not quite shoes. Now the search is over, its finally here! The Hana will never come off my feet once I have them.

  • Joshua Hurley

    So excited to get my pair!

  • Pål

    “Your Xero Shoes Order #:xxxxxx is on the way!”

    Oh yes!:D

  • Paul Barbot

    I’ve been waiting for eons to see a ZeroShoe shoe. That time is now upon us.

  • Keith

    Ok, so when I’m measuring using the templates… I’m looking down at my foot, do I place the bottom of my heel inside the line or the very back of my heel inside the line? When I did the sizing templates for my Umara Z-Trails I got size 13 based on the back of my heel inside the line and I feel like I should have gotten the next size down based on how much I have flapping past my toes.

  • Rachel Gibbs

    I can’t wait to wear these at Voodoo Fest in New Orleans (dancing the night away) and then to India in January! Of course, my Umara Z-trail sandals will be accompanying me on both trips, too!

  • Xzavier Alexander

    Ohh.. I like these!! If they’re what I expected, I’ll have to buy other colors! And for a woman I do have a pretty wide foot, not to mention, I’d love to be able to wear my toe correctors in them!
    I’ll probably do everything that I usually do in my other Xero Shoes, running, biking, hiking, day-to-day wear, but I’ll also be able to go to church, and work, and climb, and do all the things I couldn’t do before in them… plus new colors!

  • Temcat

    I am very excited about these shoes after reading some of the comments from folk wearing them!

  • Sizing is SIMILAR to the Z-Trail, but remember that the Trail comes in whole sizes only (e.g. 7, 8, 9…) and the Hana comes in 1/2 sizes as well. Plus, sandal sizing is more forgiving because you can slide forward/back by adjusting the heel strap tension.

    • wrjohnson45

      I did the printing sizer and found the good ol right foot is longer than the left, not unusual. My Amura z’s are m9’s but the shoe sizing suggests 11. So I order the 11’s today. Thanks for the new shoes, Steven. Now I can walk in the heavy forest and not get stabbed by the brush. 🙂

  • Corry Lehmann

    Can’t wait for these awesome shoes!

  • sser

    Can’t wait for them to be shipped!

  • Bernard Wrangle

    And they’re here!!!

  • I would love to win a pair and see how awesome they are.

  • Jason Martin

    These look exactly like what I have been needing

  • Ryan B.

    I’ve been watching the video reviews on Youtube. These look great!

  • Jimmy Smith

    Looks like the very shoe I need to do my hiking in

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    Tracking mine now – can’t wait!!

  • Thasgolas

    Looks like just the shoe I need right now!

  • Amanda W

    I’ve sooooo been waiting for a closed-toe minimal shoe that won’t squeeze across my toes, but won’t fall off my heel! Really looking forward to the Lena version!! Ordered some Hanas yesterday for a pre-Christmas gift for Hubby. 🙂 (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!!!!)

  • ToCo

    The comfort! It’s all about comfort!

  • Erik L

    Am i the only one that will wear the Ipari Hana’s north of the arctic circle in 2016 !? Thats what i will do if i get a pair.

  • REBECCA PIERSON

    I am always on my feet & do a lot of walking. These shoes look so comfortable and after watching the video review i’m sold!!

  • Tim

    How long does it take after I have ordered them until you ship them?

  • Steve L.

    Def. looks like a great addition to Xero Shoes…would love a chance to test these out and give an unbiased review.
    Be well!

  • Josh Schriever

    Almost to 60,000!

  • smwinn7

    really considering ordering these gotta convince my self that I need another pair of shoes

  • Bryan Wetzel

    Just in time, my toes were freezing on the way to work this morning.

  • jodi armstrong

    I’ve never tried these but would love to, they sound perfect for running after a toddler all day and any other adventures we embark on. Thanks for the chance!

  • Taylor K

    So exciteddd ??

  • Dan Calhoun

    Hey just wondering are you meant to wear socks with these?

    • You can if you like. Either way works.

      They look pretty sock neutral to me. I imagine most sandal wearers and people used to wearing their minimalist shoes without socks won’t be wearing any with these(most of the video reviewers didn’t seem to wear socks at least). That being said I don’t think wearing socks with them would be an issue, and I plan to do so. And now that you mention it, I might should have ordered a size up for that reason…

  • MG

    I chose these over the offerings from Vivobarefoot. Looks like just what I was needing and they’re supposed to arrive tomorrow!

  • Paul Barbot

    My Merrell Gloves have pooped out at just the right time. Such a considerate shoe!

  • Byron Nash

    Just discovered these shoes/sandals. Can’t wait to try out a pair.

  • Corry Lehmann

    Everything about these Xero shoes makes me go, “Oooooo”!!

  • Keith

    Hoping for a call back to my voicemail on sizing! And adding another comment for the drawing.

    • We’re returning calls and emails as fast as possible. We’re getting SLAMMED over here

      • Keith

        No worries. I figured that. I’m patient. Just wanted a new comment for my points 🙂

  • natural farmer

    I already got a nice pair of Camper Peu this year and now I see these Ipari???? Oh boy! I neeeed them!!! They look crazy beautiful!!!

  • Temcat

    Every time I look at the picture of them I think how great they would be for track walking!.

  • Diana Diaz

    So not fair for little girly-sized 37 feet.

    • You’ll be happy when the Lena comes out in March.

    • Jenny

      I wear a 38 and the 6.5 fits great!

      • Diana Diaz

        🙁 still not a 37

  • Ollin

    I just love the fact that even though closed-toe, the Ipari Hana’s design is still based on the huaraches

  • Bernard Wrangle

    Anyone else having a hard time deciding which color to get?

  • Jenny Rappleye

    I am looking forward to getting a pair!

  • Skyler James

    These shoes look sick! I’m a fan of minimalist running so it would be nice to have a pair of these and not ruin my vans that I also use as my casual shoes :p

  • ireon williams

    The design

  • Steven Morris

    I bought my pair today!!! If I win a pair do I get a credit back on my purchase, or do I get a new pair? Might want to add brown to my collection if I love my black Hanas as much as I expect to.

  • Jenny

    Just got my pair of Hana’s- they feel awesome!!

  • I am hoping to get a pair!! Awesome! Love them so much!! 🙂

  • Cathy

    What makes me go “Ooooohhhh!” about the Hana is their casual, comfortable style and support.

  • tripwire

    Ive never really looked up on minimalist shoes but it looks so comfortable. I really shld get one of them soon

  • Jeff Kristoffer Lualhati

    I own a pair of the original classic Xero Shoes and I really love them. Currently at 3000km+ with my pair and I still use them whenever I join 100mile races

  • Paul Barbot

    Come on lucky shoe lottery I need a win here!

  • MG

    My Hana’s arrive today! Please, please fit my narrow foot.

  • Cassandra Kelton

    I so desperately need a new pair of minimalist shoes that have coverage on top. Beyond excited to see your new Ipari Hana shoes. I bought a cheap pair of wide toed aqua shoes this summer which got me through but they are falling apart badly. Thank you for offering these!

  • CMoore

    Get mine today. So excited to try them out.

  • smwinn7

    an all black/gray version would be cool too

  • sser

    Should be seeing my lovely new treads tomorrow!

  • Megan S

    Other than the beautiful design, I love the versatility of these shoes, and they look amazingly comfortable!

  • Anders Bohlin

    Looks very nice!

  • Logan Harris

    They look great!

  • Pascale

    Love these! Maybe one more feminine looking could be the next project?

    • Take a look at the Facebook Live video and you’ll see the Lena 😉

  • meganavl

    Would love a pair of these!

  • Skyler James

    What makes be go ohhh? The sleek style and colors 🙂

  • jamingurnee

    LOVE the design!

  • JVF

    Ipari Hana are on my feet now!!! My coworkers think I’ve lost my mind, I’m so excited about these shoes! Great job Xero Team, I love them!

  • Logan

    Just got them in the mail!

  • Noreen Otto

    intrigued!

  • Bernard Wrangle

    So pumped about these!

  • Dd Vv

    I come from vertical walls where sensibility is all, so why not bring this philosophy in the horizontal world?

  • Evan Snyder

    So excited for these!

  • Dustin Sigaty

    These look great! Can’t wait to wear them all the time 🙂

  • Sonia

    I must go and spend some quality time with my Hana’s.

  • Jayson

    I didnt see this one coming from Xero. What a great surpise! I’m in for sure. These will pack up nicely while traveling.

  • Phil Tobin

    I got mine, but unfortunately I ordered the same size as my Amuri Ventures. I need one half size larger.

    • wrjohnson45

      Phil, I have many sandals and was about to order the same size as well but took Steven’s adace and ordered even larger than a half size. I wear an M8 in sandals but ordered a 10.5 in the shoe. I checked both feet and found my right foot larger.

      • Phil Tobin

        Thanks. I am exchanging for a full size larger. I really hope it works. I am excited to give these shoes a try.

  • Lisa Coomer Queen

    Super Excited

  • Matt Riney

    Dope shoe!

  • Scott Hall

    Love this. As much as I like my Xeros, in certain social situations they make me too much of a Jesus-hippy-dude, which I kind of am but don’t always want to start every social interaction in that way. The Ipari Hana looks like a more socially normal option that works better in colder weather (Seattle), where I can still spontaneously hit the trail at any moment.

    • wrjohnson45

      Scott, I hear you. But then I figure they started it, so then I jump into my Born to Run lecture and gets lots of “oh really” “I didn’t know that”, “wow, that’s interesting” comments.

  • Jim Philips

    Gimme some!

  • Corry Lehmann

    These shoes look awesome!

  • Gluckenstucken

    A shoe to get me through the winter 🙂

  • Sebastien Durandeu

    I would wear them to walk and run on the Oregon Coast beaches…probably some nice trails too…they must be so comfortable they gonna make me want to use them for my ultrasrunning

  • Greg Veal

    Barefoot is uncomfortable for me. Typically need arch support. Should I avoid these?

    • wrjohnson45

      Greg, I was told that at one time “because I have flat” feet I needed arch support. I wore clunkers when I was a kid. My dad owned the store that sold shoes. They even had an xray machine so you could see your feet in your shoes. The myth of support has been around for years. I found that there is no need for arch support as you naturally have all the support you need built in. All feet are created differently but have one thing in common, they were born without shoes! I am 71 years old and gave up arched/ padded shoes 8 years ago. Couldn’t be happier. Love going barefoot. I have even developed a bit of an arch without shoes. I you have been wearing shoes with arches, your feet will need time to adapt. But not all that much. I walk on the fore/mid foot now and rarely walk heal first, too hard on my knees, hip and back. Heals are really good for standing still. Good luck.

      • Greg Veal

        My feet get numb just standing barefoot. I would like to adapt but not sure if I ever would. What is your return policy?

        • wrjohnson45

          I am a customer so I don’t know return policy other than what is written. Typically if you wear a shoe and it shoes use you cannot from most of the Co’s I have dealt with. If your feet get numb when you are barefoot, something is wrong. If you were supports, take them off and then get numb, try only a short time with shoes off and gradually increase your time without the supports. I am no doctor, just one who got tired of the baloney about the arch support issue. Some feet just have troubles.

  • Bob Westenhousen

    Was checking out the live video to see the Lena and saw the Prio… very excited for March.

    • wrjohnson45

      Me too. Love the colors!

  • Jenny Rappleye

    Maybe my pair will arrive tomorrow, I can’t wait! I have narrow feet but I’m hoping to love these shoes!

  • Jupi

    I’d like to win a pair for my mom, since she can’t really afford shoes right now. She used to wear Vibrams and refuses to go full barefoot like me, but her feet would be so happy if she could have a pair of minimalist shoes again!

  • I shared on google plus: https://plus.google.com/+WandaTracey

  • Laura Rudek

    These look amazing! I’m a special education teacher, so, I go from class to class all day – LOTS of walking! I wear my Xero sandals on Friday with jeans since we can wear running shoes. I could wear the Ipari Hana every day!!!

  • Amanda W

    My husband just got his pair in today!! Super nice quality!! But he needs to return them for a 1/2 size larger…his socks make them just a bit too small for him. (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!!!!)

  • Brian Fitzgerald

    Looking forward to being the barefoot principal 🙂

  • Aaron

    Love my vibrams, would like to see how these are 🙂

  • I shared on facebook.

  • Michael J Falkous

    I would love to win a pair of Ipari Hana shoes. They look great so I would be able to wear them to Church and out for dinner unlike my Amuri Ventures which I love. I cant get enough of my Xero Shoes and having a closed pair like Ipari Hands would be fantastic.

  • TBC

    Pretty sure I’m going to give these a go.

  • Pål

    Still waiting…why oh why is the mail so slow??! o.O

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    Waiting to road test these on the streets of China….. Bring on the mail!!!!

  • Chad Johnson

    I’m all about minimalist shoes. Always trying to convert others.

  • Paul Barbot

    Counting the days………..

  • Aaron

    Really looking forward to trying these out 🙂

  • CMoore

    Got the new shoes yesterday. Can’t wait for the weekend so I can take them for a spin.

  • ToCo

    The comfort!

  • Logan

    My favorite new shoe!

  • Krystal Love

    I want to feel the earth move under my feet (with the protection of the Ipari Hana!)

  • JPrimo

    Love your shoes. Can’t wait to try the Ipari Hana!

  • Corry Lehmann

    All my philanges are crossed for this!

  • Temcat

    I hope all the folk that want these shoes get to have a pair! Including me!

  • Eric

    Once upon a time, someone who thought barefoot style shoes were crazy was convinced to buy a pair of Merrell barefoot reach glove shoes. They then became his favorite shoe ever, and he was fully converted to barefoot minimalist shoes. Then one sad day, Merrell stopped making them. They lasted quite a while, but alas, this someone later accidentally and heartlessly abandoned his beloved shoes in a China hotel room.

    That someone is me.

    I have put off buying new shoes for three months out of disappointment that no available shoe seem to satisfy my lonely feet in all aspects which they enjoyed about these shoes. But the Ipari Hana may just be not only a satisfaction but an upgrade. Won’t you please grant these feet a return to bliss?

  • Calthesa

    Nice

  • Jakob Casebolt

    I’m super stoked for these shoes!

  • Bob Westenhousen

    I imagine these should loosen up to about the same extent as most shoes? Got mine today and love them, but I didn’t size up to account for socks and they’re just a tad bit small. The last running shoes I got felt about the same as these do when I got them, and they’re pretty comfortable now.

  • Brian Fitzgerald

    There’s a lot to love, but here are 3 things I love about Xero Shoes:
    1) People – the people at Xero Shoes are incredible. I have been so impressed with their customer service. They respond promptly and personally. I get the impression that Steve’s friendliness has set a great tone at the company.
    2) Feet – love the philosophy behind Xero Shoes products (no need to preach to the choir here!)
    3) Price – I can’t believe the price of these shoes. I’ve been holding off buying minimalist shoes because I was anticipating this release, but I was expecting to have to pay through the nose. It’s possible that I won’t buy shoes from anyone else from here on out!

  • I love Xero shoes because I love going bare foot and this is the closest to feeling like I am walking on ground!!
    They are supreme comfort to wear and they are the perfect minimalist shoes that look stylish too.

  • Just ordered one today few hours ago and looking forward to it!

  • Jupi

    I can’t wait!

  • Amanda W

    Just got a pair for my husband. Awesome quality shoes! (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!!!!!)

  • Bryan O’Donnell

    Absolutely love my original diy Xeros! I live in Japan and love to tell people about running in these! Hoping to do a triathalon with these next! The ipari hana’s would def. be a bit more culturally acceptable though style wise…;) (sidenote the name reminds of pulling flowers, sounds similar in Japanese.)

  • Temcat

    I just did my morning hike with Z-trek and a pair of heavy socks–But I NEED Ipari Hana!

  • CMoore

    Finally got a chance to rock the new Ipari Hana and they were awesome. Really liked wearing them without the insole.

  • wrjohnson45

    Just received mine! Love them. Oh my, guess its time to order another pair! I wear a men’s nine in the Z’s ordered and 11 in these. Do use the template, seems right on. I should also be able to get a light pair of sock into the shoes as well this winter. Love the fit and feel. Color is better than what I see on my monitor. At the post office ran into a friend who’s wife just ordered a pair of Z’s and she got the wrong size. Use the template or ruler against the wall using both feet and pick the larger of the two. Sandals still rule, but these, just what I need when my sandals aren’t practical or frowned on (not that I care)!

  • smwinn7

    Not sure if I’m going to go with the Hana out a diy pair with waterproof socks

  • thecoopersmith

    Just received my Hanas and they look great! Sadly, I assumed the size for my Huaraches would be same for Hanas… so just returned them for 1/2 size larger. Be sure you use the Hana template for sizing. I should add that Xero Shoes support was very kind and emailed me the return label right away.

  • Gluckenstucken

    Ah, just found out these are boys’ toys. I have super narrow feet but if I cannot make them work then I know who will benefit from them. Sad that the women have to tough it out through the winter before there is sole equality. 🙁

  • Corry Lehmann

    They look so incredibly comfortable! Love the style, too!

  • Sonia

    Love the closed-toe offering. Jury duty court frowns upon my xero sandals. I’ll show them how to feel the freedom with my Hana’s.

  • Jupi

    These look super comfy! <3

  • stephanie note

    Love the closed toe look

  • Aaron

    Lets go!

  • Logan

    I absolutely love these shoes.

  • Bernard Wrangle

    Great minimal shoe for cooler weather!

    • Bob Westenhousen

      Indeed. I think they’d be a little chilly in freezing weather(depending on your socks), but definitely much better than sandals for cooler weather.

  • Logan Harris

    Excited to see what future editions look like!

    • Bob Westenhousen

      There’s a facebook video where they briefly show the Prio, which is a running shoe.

  • Hugo Bler

    Hello from Brazil

  • A

    Got my Hanas in yesterday.

    I can say without any doubt that these are the most comfortable and foot friendly shoes that I have ever worn in my life. Usually when I wear shoes I just tolerate them long enough to finish my social duties for the day until I get home and am able to rip them off my feet, but not with these. I feel comfortable wearing these all day long and my feet never complain.

    They have a nice wide toebox which allows my toes and feet to splay like they should, and the toebox itself is also tall enough to allow my toes to flex upwards as I walk which is very important. I’m also able to bend/crack my toes while just lounging around so that I never have a real need to take these off in order to get ‘relief’ like I do with other shoes.

    Also they look great too. I ordered the black and rust Hanas and the sleek dark color with the bright accent and low profile makes them look very sexy. On top of that they manage to have a wide toebox without looking like clown shoes like some other brands, and they manage to somehow be a sandal company’s first real shoe without looking like it. I am very proud to show these off and am excited to see what comes next. I hope the company does experience the vertical growth that was alluded to, however I just have to ask that if Xeroshoes does grow vertically that they do not start making their shoes slimmer in order to appeal to the normies.

    In case this info helps anyone, I have wide feet with a wider toe splay and I went a 1/2 size up and use these shoes with socks and the insole in. Perfect feel.

  • ireon williams

    Excited about these shoes

  • Taylor K

    Ahhh can’t wait ??

    Just got these! Awesome shoes! (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!!!)

    Grrr,still waiting for snailmail :/

    Couldn’t you just emailed them to me instead ? 😀

  • Temcat

    Thrilled with the report from the folk who have tried them already!

  • Brandon

    They are on their way!

  • Corry Lehmann

    I will wear these everywhere!

  • Ricardo

    fantastic prize!

  • pandj2002

    I received the HANA a few days ago. They are well constructed and stylish and wanted a pair of each color. Unfortunately my foot is far to wide for this shoe even with the insole removed, painfully tight. When I opened the box I could tell from the get go they where not as wide as I hoped they would be. They are long enough but if your foot is over a D width you may find them far to tight, negating the wide toe box. Unfortunately I am bound to wearing shoes that provide absolutely no benefit to my well being or health. I know several other people with the same problem as me who cannot fully convert to minimalist foot wear because the industry believes that people with wide feet do not create a large enough market to make it profitable. I have worn VFF and sandals for the most part over 5 years. Recently my employer has banned open toe shoes in our department and I was hoping the HANA was going to be the answer to my prayers.
    The HANA is a really nice shoe looks great and appears to be well constructed but if you have a wide foot over a D width these shoes will be too tight and will not provide the benefits of wearing Xero Shoes / minimalist shoe wear.

    • Jakob Casebolt

      I’m in the same boat. I’ve got a 4E width foot and also have difficulty with minimalist footwear. Thanks for the heads up. I was hoping these could have worked out. I love the sandals, but alas, it appears that the close toe shoe will not work for my wide feet. I’m able to comfortably get my feet into a pair of VivoBarefoot shoes. If you haven’t tried them I recommend giving them a shot. Good luck!

      • pandj2002

        Thanks. I wear Lems primal 2 to work one size larger than I should wear. Their primal 2 are based on a 2E shoe last. They are tight in the forefoot but plenty of space for toe splay. What model Vivo did you find that fit best?

        • Jakob Casebolt

          I tried Lems out as well, but they were still a little too tight for me even after going up a size. I’m rocking the Stealth in Vivobarefoot. I’d rather support Xero Shoes though. I really like the company and their sandals. Hopefully, they’ll come out with a wider width option for us folks that are wider in the middle after the success of the first run.

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    bring on some neutral more formal colors…. Looks great!!!

  • smwinn7

    Don’t forget the Q&A today

  • Robin Fritche

    I really want these but my feet are too small. :'( I know they’ll be coming out with a women’s shoe later, but I really wanted the extra wide toe box.

  • John X

    Greatly looking forward to these!

  • ireon williams

    I would wear these everyday

  • Raw Conditioning

    Hari Hari Apari; early morning it’s nice & cool – slip on apari hana, cause I’m no fool – qi is fresh while practicing taichi – with xero shoes, earth below I feel free

  • Paul Barbot

    Hurry up and arrive already!

  • Max Smith

    I would use these for running, cycling, anything!

  • Temcat

    Wonder if these are washable?

  • I would wear these shoes everywhere. 🙂

  • Kate Deering

    I would love a pair of these for my husband – casual shoes are the only minimal shoes we haven’t found yet!

  • Angelica Maier Greve

    Right now, the closest footwear I have to these are my rope sandals. I’m on only my second pair since 2005 and love them, as they conform to my feet the longer I wear. Could definitely get some good use out of a shoe like the Hana, especially since I am not able to wear my sandals to work! Your design seems to be long lasting and that’s what I tend to look for. Thanks guys!

  • FlaVickie

    OhOhOhOh
    Perfect for scrambling over jetty rocks and hard coral, coquina in the south Florida and the keys! Not live of course!
    Grip with wave action and saves bare feet. No falling on slippery rocks or getting cut..or worse…
    Like falling into the inlets, etc…lol.

    This company is a very important sign of times:
    if shoes are a symbol of civilization,
    like the Mayan civilization ended by the people returning to the forest,
    this is what is happening HERE !!
    Barefoot movement is a returning to feeling our connection to our planet.
    It is one heck of a start to a quantum parading shift!

    Thank you so much for your insight…

  • Micah Larson

    Being barefoot is so Pleistocene. Ipari Hana……bringing barefeet everywhere into the Holocene Era.

  • JVF

    I’m loving my Ipari Hana shoes! They arrived last Thursday and every time I wear them I like them more. The ground feel is great with them, my feet feel the best they’ve felt in a while leaving work, and they get a lot of compliments. The canvas feels substantial enough that I am not concerned about them wearing out as fast as my Sanuks have in the past. One thing to note is they seem to run a bit smaller than the Z-Trails and Z-Treks so if you are using the sizing chart and it looks like you need a bigger size than you do in the sandals, you probably do. In any event, I don’t know how I could be happier with these shoes! Thanks Xero Team, keep up the good work!

  • Logan Harris

    Starting to get cooler here, perfect timing!

  • Andy Johnson

    Need as an alternative to my VFF I can wear to work!

    Was just under the sizing for a 9.5, but ordered the 10. Glad I did. The 10 is big enough to accommodate socks, but not too big without them. They’re awesome!

  • Jenny

    I got mine last week and I e been wearing them nonstop. Love these shoes!

  • Temcat

    Looking forward to trying these!

  • ireon williams

    Perfect shoes!

  • Steven Morris

    When ordering your Hana shoes, be sure to give the correct shipping address! ?
    I had mine shipped to my girlfriends condo and forgot to include the unit number. ☹️
    So instead of getting my Hanas this past Saturday, I got to see the tracking info say “undeliverable as addressed. returned to shipper.” ?
    Now I have to wait even longer to have the shoe of my dreams upon my feet.

  • Paul Barbot

    Can’t wait for these bad boys to arrive!

  • Lisa Coomer Queen

    Pure Awesomness!

  • MG

    Bummer, had to return my Hana’s. I ordered a 9, according to size chart, and they were a bit tight against my toes. Sent them back for a pair of 9.5’s. Just to pass on my experience, I would say they fit just a bit tighter than normal. If you’re close to a certain size, I would recommend going up a half size. For example, I measured right at 10.5 inches. According to the chart, that would be a 9. Hopefully the 9.5’s will be enough!

    • Andrew Nash

      Same here. I need to send them back. When they have you measure your feet, the shoe will be THAT exact size. The show is not sized to fit the foot you measured so add a little more so your toes don’t get jammed in.

  • Josh Ulmer

    Would love to try these out!! Haven’t ever ventured into the minimalist shoes because of cost. I have some hip and knee issues and I know a lot of times it can stem from foot imbalances and shoes like this would be great to get my feet working correctly!

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    Looks like the ultimate travel shoe!!

    • Phil Tobin

      I was thinking the same thing!

  • Michael J Falkous

    A friend who likes to make fun of me for running in Xero Shoes admitted that the new Hanas actually look good. May have a convert on our hands 😛

  • ireon williams

    Looks stylish and comfortable just in time for Halloween ?

  • Evelyn

    I have crazy wide feet and narrow heels. Men’s size 7 sandals fit me, so I tried the same size in Hanas. At first, they were too tight, but the canvas has stretched nicely. My heels do not slip, because without any cushioning, there is nowhere for them to go. This morning I am trying them with socks for the first time. Anyway, if you have wide feet (such that you scoff at shoes marketed as “wide”), these may work great for you 🙂

  • Zachary Hill

    I’m on my 2nd pair of Xero sandals and love them. Many friends and family members tease me and refer to them as my “Jesus sandals.” I don’t care because they have helped my feet and leg problems so much. I literally preach to them about why they should be wearing Xero Shoes. I wear them for everyday use (sometimes even when I’m riding the Harley) and also hiking in the mountains. Thanks for your product.

  • Tam

    These look GREAT! I can’t wait to try them!

    I love that the hana is so casual and nice looking, as well as versatile. Being vegan is a great extra!

  • I love that they are flat, flexible, have a wide toe box with no toe spring. Getting all four of those features in a shoe is hard to find. I’d love to review these for my blog.

    These shoes are not just shoes. They represent a lifestyle, they inspire conversation when you see someone else wearing them. They advocate on behalf of fitness, activity and adventure and create community. I would be honored to rock a rad pair of these fantastic shoes.

  • Max Smith

    These are such a godsend

  • Jill Reznick

    I have lived in your Xeroshoes since I got them and I am so excited that you now have a closed shoe! I would love to win a pair of these!!

  • Pascale

    Love those! I have been wearing Xeros for over a year and started to wear regular shoes lately at work and it is incredible how I miss the feeling! A shoe for winter months is super!

  • aaem

    As a guy with a small foot (usually have to shop boys sizes), unfortunately your “Men’s shoe” doesn’t come in my size. It would be nice if your company would create a unisex shoe offered in an array of sizes for all genders. Seems like it would benefit your company with being able to offer a closed toe shoe option to all, not just men, therefore selling more shoes. And in the spring, be able to come out with a whole new all gender style. Win, win. There aren’t many barefoot shoe companies out there, so creating styles that are all-inclusive on the sizing would be most appreciated. At the moment, Vivobarefoot is one company that has unisex shoes and sizing (especially for some of their basic options); it would be nice if there were another company to choose from. I hope your shoes follow what you offer with your sandals, unisex options that is. Thanks.

  • Temcat

    getting excited to find out who wins!

  • Corry Lehmann

    I would quite happily live in these shoes!

  • Daniel Lee

    I love that these have a toned town appearance that I will be able to wear at work!

  • Ludvig Bergstedt

Compared to the DIY sandals they are about 3/4 inch narrower, which is quite a big difference, see picture below. Please make them in a wide version based on the uncut DIY-sole and I would buy them again in all colors!!

    • Atrus

      That’s kind of disappointing. My big toe and little toe hang over the edge slightly as it is in the sandals. Not far enough to feel anything because it’s not far enough off to be uncomfortable and the sides are open. Anything narrower with a closed top is gonna squish my toes. A wide or extra wide version would be great since i still can’t find any closed shoes that are actually wide enough to accommodate my toe spread, not even the lems which advertises having a large toe box.

  • Amanda W

    My husband loves the pair I bought for him! Awesome shoes!…barefoot, super quality and style! (When I’m not barefoot, I wear DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!!!)

  • FlaVickie

    OoooHoooo
    cant wait for next promotion for me..a gal!

  • Sonia

    The Hana’s are the perfect closed-toe shoe. Thanks!

  • CMoore

    Love rocking my Ipari Hanas!

  • Natalya

    Xero drop is where it’s at 🙂

  • Greg Akins

    I’m pretty excited to have something to replace my sandals when the weather get’s colder

  • AmandaNM

    These look wonderful! I’d love to have a pair to slip on when I go outside. Most of my life I’ve preferred to be barefoot (at work and at play) but New Mexico has toooooooo many stickers. I’ve eradicated all the goat-head stickers from my yard (relentless digging them up, with touch-up digging of a few baby plants each year) but the rest of NM is full of them. I’ve also done barefoot hiking in Colorado, but NM = stickers! So these would be great.

  • Rain

    I can’t wait to be in nothing but barefoot or xero shoes! All I can say is, “yummy yummy feet!”

  • Gluckenstucken

    Excited now to find out just why these shoes have such a huge & happy following. 🙂

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    looking good!!!

  • smwinn7

    still trying to decide

  • Logan

    These are here just in time for cold weather

  • Paul Barbot

    When I finally get my pair I can’t wait to traverse the treacherous trail to the summit of NC’s highest mountain, Mount Mitchell, to proudly and loudly declare–hoping my words will reverberate within the minds of the huddled masses–“Xero Shoes will make your feet happy! So toss aside the corporate, oppressive apparatus that has been holding your feet hostage for so many years. Take that first tentative step out of the familiar and step into a pair of Xero Shoes. Get a taste of real freedom and never turn back my friends!”

  • Cora Burns

    Love my Amuri Clouds so much I still wear them even though there is a small hole in the sole now! Got some Z-treks not too long ago and they instantly felt awesome as well. Looking forward to checking out the close-toed option.

  • Digger

    Shipping is pricy; over 20% of the cost of the product for the cheapest shipping.

    • Bernard Wrangle

      Shoes are bulky to ship and it’s going Priority USPS so it is tracked and insured.

  • Max Smith

    so useful!

  • Erik L

    Mine are so close now looking at the shipping tracking like 10 times a day… =)

  • yoa78

    Speaking of cold weather – I wonder how these fill fair out in colder temperatures? Are the soles thick/high enough to insulate your feel from cold concrete, tarmac, etc.

  • Corry Lehmann

    So excited to find out who wins!

  • Steven Morris

    Yay! Tomorrow I will go by the Xero offices and pick up my new Hanas!

  • ireon williams

    I need these shoes in my life Jesus please!

  • Amanda W

    My husband is loving his Hanas! Awesome quality, barefoot feel and style!! (When I’m not barefoot, I wear the DIY Xeros…so do my kids…love!!!!!)

  • Shain Wright

    A Haiku for Hana:

    Yes dreams do come true
    Xero’s new closed toe shoes
    Thank you, -Shain’s feet

  • RLtino

    I really like my Amuri Z-trek and am excited to get my Ipari Hana! Way to go Xero shoes!

  • Nicola Fairhurst

    I love my z-trails but the Italian winter is coming, I need to cover my toes and would love to be the first in Italy with a pair of the new Hanas!

  • Michael J Falkous

    Finally I can start wearing shoes ?

  • Neal Caburian

    Shoes have been shipped!! Any day now. Can’t wait!!

  • Brandon

    Just received my shipment! Can’t wait to give them a test run!

  • smwinn7

    i think these are going to replace my toms around town

  • Paul Barbot

    Just my obligatory post. Nothing to see here.

    • Bernard Wrangle

      Probably a lot of those here.

  • Corry Lehmann

    Eeekkk, so excited!

  • Logan

    Xero Shoes: The best shoe ever.

  • Sonia

    Ipari Hana completes me.

  • Max Smith

    Excellent!

  • Skyler James

    Lets gooo

  • CMoore

    Going to shoe off my new Ipari Hana shoes at work tomorrow. Let the compliments roll in.

  • Temcat

    looking forward to testing these on the indoor walking track!

    • wrjohnson45

      I ran with mine and loved the feel. I like the wider toe box, of course not nearly as much as the Amura Z’s to let me feet be most free.

  • TBC

    But do they have good arch support!? 😉

    • wrjohnson45

      These are based on Barefoot running. You already have a good, natural arch so no support is needed. I wore arch support shoes for 50 years, they did nothing for me or my running…. I switch to minimalist and then Xero over the past 9 years and changed my running style fo landing forfoot – mid foot with good success. I continue to run at age 71, which I believe is good testament coming from a guy with flat arches. I love this running style and it keeps my joints and back happy. I use my built in natural foot that I was born with and have increased my love of running. Go Barefooting!

      • TBC

        Was totally being sarcastic, hence the winking emoticon at the end. Been a big barefoot/minimalist guy for over 6 years now. It saved me from quitting running after only a year into my running career when I developed almost crippling piriformis syndrome.
        Someone handed my “Born to Run” at the gym, went minimal and have never looked back.

        • wrjohnson45

          Cool, just noted your response… I am bit slow on the draw:-) I like your thinking, reminds of myself 🙂

  • JlROD

    I ordered, I’ve received it, and I’m changing the size, but they looked exceptional Anxious to get it back to give a full test, but they are very well finished, hoping to win the contest, to get another color!

  • Nathaniel

    I’ve wanted a pair of minimalist, easy to slip on casual shoes. I’m so excited about these!

  • Michael J Falkous

    I wannipari hanas

  • ireon williams

    Looks exceptional could use these for Mardi Gras season!

  • Herman Harris

    I received my first pair of zero shoes 5 days ago (Hana, black). All my previous shoes I’d get a swelling in my right foot. Not with these Hana’s !! They are great. The barefoot feelling thing is new to me, but I am particularly enjoying the freedom my feet have in the toe area. Very comfortable. I ordered a pair of brown Hana’s and will be getting them tomorrow. That way I can pretty much enjoy these shoes full time.
    By the way, your Sunday skype presentation was very informative. Looking forward to future products.

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    Counting down the days to try these out!!!!

  • Neal Caburian

    Just received my pair! Looking forward to putting plenty of miles in them. First impressions are very good. I like the gusseted tongue and the canvas material looks very durable. I normally wear a size 8.5 US or 41 European and ordered my Hanas in size 8.5. They feels true to size with ample room in the toe box without being excessively loose. Ground feel seems sufficient, which is fine, as I plan to use them primarily as a casual shoe and less as a running shoe. Overall, two thumbs up!! Extremely happy with my purchase!!

  • Aaron

    Great shoes! Can’t wait.

  • Logan

    Can’t wait for my new pair to show up!

  • smwinn7

    3 more days and we’ll know who the big winners are

  • Corry Lehmann

    Fingers crossed I win these amazing shoes!

  • MG

    I received my 9.5’s today after sending back the 9’s last week. Glad I exchanged them! The 9’s were a bit tight up against my toes. With the 9.5’s, my toes barely touch the tips of the shoes, and only occasionally. For me I’d rather have that than go with an even larger 10. I have a narrow foot and while these shoes are ever so slightly wide for me, I can see where they might be to narrow for a person with a wide foot (as others here have mentioned). I’m very happy with them so far! They are very well constructed shoes.

    • Bernard Wrangle

      Good to know! I also have a narrow foot and was wondering about the fit.

  • Steven Morris

    Picked my Hanas up yesterday! Couldn’t wear them until the drive home from work late night. (Need foot protection for work. Steven just laughed when I told him I needed a steel toed Xero for work.) Get to run errands in them today. Yahoo!

  • Laura Solar Nova

    I love my Amuri Clouds, but I would love to win a pair of Hanas so I could gift them to by boyfriend! 🙂

  • Max Smith

    These are great!

  • Nathaniel

    Really excited to get some of these. I got lucky and the 6.5s are just the right size, but I feel bad for the few people with smaller feet than mine.

  • Raw Conditioning

    it’s a natural thing to go bare feet – feel the dirt, sand, grass, it’s really neat – wise men they know how to flow – put on a pair of xero shoes & off you go

  • Gabrielly Margutti

    I love the shoes. I would love to win.

  • Paul Barbot

    Come on my benevolent goddess and protector of lower extremities, I need these shoes! May you bestow upon me that which I most desire.

  • Phil Tobin

    Just got mine. Looking forward to wearing them this weekend to try them out.

  • Gluckenstucken

    Trick or treat
    Shod my feet
    Give me something good… no GREAT!
    🙂

  • kt

    How exciting!! These look amazing!

  • MJ

    These look really comfortable and cute.

  • Brian Fitzgerald

    People can’t believe that I actually hike in my Z-Treks, and one of those people saw me wearing Hanas yesterday and asked, “What’s with the new shoe experiment?” I love getting odd looks for my Xeros and explaining what’s up with them. Love it

    • Bernard Wrangle

      Weird shoes are a great conversation starter…whether you like it or not sometimes.

  • smwinn7

    2 more days

  • Paul Barbot

    The hour of my podiatric awakening draws ever closer!

  • Gabrielly Margutti

    These look really comfortable.

  • Corry Lehmann

    Come to Mama, Ipari Hana!

  • Logan

    2 more days for me!

  • RLtino

    I really like my Amuri’s, getting reay for my Ipari Hana’s

  • Serina Weber Toman

    I really want to try these!

  • Laura

    I got mine today!!! They are amazing! I wore my sandals on Friday, but, these will work every day. They are super cute, I was a little worried they would look too rugged. (But, on a guy they wouldn’t look “cute”, I’m ordering some for my husband, we’re both teachers and on our feet all day.)

  • Ellarie Blickenstaff

    I work at a school where I cannot wear open toed shoes. My feet hurt everyday and Xeroshoes are the only thing I have found that brings comfort to me feet. I have been hoping they will come out with a close toed design so that I can be pain free in my feet the rest of the 3/4 of the year.

  • Logan Harris

    These would be great for office wear!

    • Bernard Wrangle

      My thoughts exactly!

  • smwinn7

    These could replace at least 2 other pairs of shoes for me

  • Paul Barbot

    My next to last obligatory post 🙂

  • MindyandEric Upton

    Gosh, I wanna win a pair!! Oh, pretty please. 😀

  • Phil Tobin

    I have been wearing them around this weekend and they are quite comfortable. I have not tried any running in them yet. They do feel a little wide in the heel, but I really like the width in the forefoot.

  • NVDan

    I love my Xero sandals. With winter coming I was wondering what I would wear. This looks like the perfect solution.

  • Thomas Borge

    my feet never felt better than with Xero – my hold posture changed and my back pain went away – these new shoes look amazing and will help my through the colder months here in Denmark!

  • Michael Wall

    These look amazing! I teach middle school and I could absolutely get away with wearing these to work. Awesome!

  • Michael Wall

    Going to work as a hippie tomorrow just so I can wear my Ventures all day. 🙂

  • Temcat

    I sure hope I win a pair of these!

  • Corry Lehmann

    Tomorrow’s the big day! Good Luck Everyone!

  • Michael J Falkous

    Only 33 hours remains, it will be interesting to see who wins. Good luck everyone!

  • Sonia

    I’m gonna miss visiting with everyone here on a daily basis when this contest ends. Keep in touch…in touch with the ground with your new Ipari Hana’s!

  • RLtino

    So many people are signed up with entries making it harder, but that just shows how many people are into these shoes!

  • Brenda

    I think they would be ideal for my husband

  • clay

    Excited to see what’s next for Ipari!

  • Max Smith

    These are great!

  • Gabrielly Margutti

    I would love to win!

  • Skyler James

    Still having faith that I’m gonna win 😉

  • Rob Schannep

    I’m so excited about these shoes!!!!

  • davetaube

    You have to be a little different to live in Hana, Maui. Someone who lives close to nature, doesn’t like to take orders, a rugged individual. Getting to Hana isn’t easy and once you’re there, the elements aren’t always nice. Flash floods caused by pelting rain makes life treacherous at times, and it’s just you against nature out here.

    That’s why I want to have a pair of Ipari Hana shoes. For chilling down at Hamoa Beach, hiking through the bamboo forest at Oheo Gulch, or walking on the black sand at Wainapanapa. Ipari Hana shoes … as unique as the people of Hana.

  • JOberheide

    I was subjected to the great customer experience at Xero shoes. Thanks for making sure I loved my xero shoes and taking care of me quickly. I’m courious about the new “shoes” and would love to win a pair! 🙂

  • Dom Heitzman

    such unique features it’s hard to decide

  • Andrew wilson

    I loved my first pair of xero shoes and have since bought a new pair of xero shoes and absolutely love them. You can do any thing in them and i have done a lot. I have gone swimming, hiking and running. I also love to wear my xero shoes in public, but can’t wear them to formal activities or even to nicer places. I would love get a new pair of Ipari Hana’s and would wear them everywhere.

  • Colin Pape

    Sandals are so well done these have to be fantastic!

  • JlROD

    They arrive tomorrow!

  • Rohit Dhyani

    Wish to win once

  • Dan Maxfield

    New shoes I need again from xero! Need to feed my addiction again. I want these shoes for work as I can’t wear the others at work!

  • Tim Jones

    This is literally the answer to my problems. I bought a pair of the z trail to estate to work since the dress code allowed for sandals… One week later Iwass told that I could no longer wear them. I’ll be picking up a pair of these if I don’t win so I can finally ditch my other incredibly uncomfortable shoes.

  • MattM

    It’s definitely time for a quality casual shoe that isn’t a full-on dress shoe but also not a running shoe! It’s time to bring the word “snazzy” for these.

  • Smok

    Give me the Hana so I can trek through the Montañas

  • Logan Harris

    Hopefully I can win a pair!

  • Laura

    I love my new Hana’s, I love them even more after watching your webcast from last week. The heel part folds down so nicely, makes them into a slip on (and off!) slipper/clog like shoe. So, when it’s necessary to wear “closed toe shoes”, it’s not necessary to leave them on, or, drive in them! Not that it’s bad to do that, they are the most comfortable shoes I own!

  • I am still breaking in my new Hana and would love to have other one!

  • Tal Merom (‫טל לויט‬‎)

    Had the sandals but they got stolen! I want a pair of comfort shoes for the mediterranean winter

  • Laura Solar Nova

    I live in Calgary, Canada, where it is too cold for sandals from October to April (even with socks) so I would like some closed Xero shoes to wear when it’s chilly.

  • disqus_EzT8mmPruz

    black and orange – woohoo!!

  • ireon williams

    I need these shoes in my life please make my Christmas wish come true!

  • Temcat

    I am such a tenderfoot that I wear socks in my sandals in the summer! So Hana is made for me!

  • Gluckenstucken

    Good luck everyone! 🙂

  • Logan Harris

    Good luck!

  • Love them!

  • Dan Maxfield

    What time should I show up Trick-or-Treating to score a pair of Hanas? It would be a good treat! LOL!

  • Paul Barbot

    Just the last obligatory post. Nothing to see here people. Move on!

  • smwinn7

    Hana’s would be a great birthday present for me

  • Logan

    Well my Hanas just came in the mail at home…. But I’m at work.

  • Brooke Pirrone

    I live a very natural lifestyle but have always had terrible problems with my knees from an injury I had when I was younger, which has kept me from being able to do a lot of things I wanted to do. I bought your sandals for the summer, & for the first time in my life, I experienced zero knee pain! I’ve walked, ran (which I haven’t been able to do in years), hiked, everything. But the cold weather has started coming in so I had to switch back to my conventional closed toed shoes & all the pain came back almost instantly. Would love to win a pair so I could continue through the winter with *xero* pain & the ability to keep being more active than I normally could be!

  • Just bought mine… Hoping to win, as this was a major splurge this month for me – hubby already spent all of our clothing budget this month on his own shoes. 🙂 But I couldn’t wait any longer and risk missing out – I’ve been waiting for closed-toe Xero shoes for years!

  • Hyperdelicious

    Ipari Hana are so future primitive… if they were made for hands… i would totally walk on all fours.

  • Robert Donaghy

    Loving the Hana’s so far, it’s a minimal shoe I can actually wear to dinner without getting looks. Still trying to get the fit just right on my left shoe, but it is getting there.

  • Gabrielly Margutti

    I would love to win!

  • Sonia

    If only Trump and Clinton would wear the Ipari Hana, then they would Feel The Freedom too. 🙂

  • Rob Olmstead

    I love my Amuri-Zs and DIY zero shoes, a pair of these would be a great addition to my collection.

  • Michael J Falkous

    The suspense is killing me!

  • Max Smith

    Not long left!

  • Corry Lehmann

    Happy Halloween for those that celebrate & Good Luck everyone! 🙂

  • Ollin

    While I was doing my parkour routine this morning I realized that, while I train, I feel comfortable moving the way parkour asks to because I’m using shoes that make me feel fairly comfortable doing so (I got a pair of Tesla BK30 for training, because it was what the cheapest minimalist running shoe I could find) but I don’t really feel comfortable in my training shoes for every-day use, because their design doesn’t really represent my style. The closed-toe shoes I’m using as casual shoes, however, usually limit my parkour impulses when not training because of their delicate but bulky design. That’s when I realized that maybe even more than becoming my parkour training shoes, the Ipari Hanas I will win in just a few hours 😉 will become the casual closed-toe shoes in which I will be able to follow through with parkour impulses beyond training, when I’m just walking to the store, for example, or walking to a body-percussion session, and loving their look while I’m at it!

  • Rain

    last day! rubbing the luck buddha and my daughter is the luck dragon

  • Brandon Sparks

    everything does… awesome shoes..

  • Steven Morris

    Been wearing my black Hanas for 3 days. Love. Love! LOVE! Would sure like to win a brown pair.

  • Cora Burns

    Can’t wait to get my new Hanas in the mail! I like a nice wide shoe and often order men’s shoes. Looking forward to wearing these!

  • rajee

    love the shape and color

  • Nathan Askey-Doran

    I love you guys. Thank you. Everyone always tells me I need to get some “real shoes” or some “proper shoes”. And I always just smile and laugh and say “nah” and grin at the life choice I’ve made and what they’re missing out on. But this would actually help – sometimes I feel uncomfortable because I know some pubs etc. have dress codes, and I feel like I’m flaunting the rules. Now I have the chance to get some “real shoes” that aren’t even “real shoes” 😛 🙂 🙂 I love sticking it to people in any way I can. 😛 🙂 <3 Once again, you're the best. You even fulfilled a weird request of mine when I ordered my last pair, to put a post-it note on the order saying, "Let people know the truth!" which made my friend laugh so hard. Thanks for all your shoes so far, and for the ones to come 😛 🙂 🙂 🙂 <3 (assuming that these ones don't last forever, which…. you never know)

  • Here’s hoping I win this!

  • Temcat

    Congrats to the winners! I really wanted to win, but hey! so did they! Enjoy your great shoes!

  • tracey

    These look awesome! I have had a lot of issues with my feet…including bunions….which the wider fit would help to accomodate. I would LOVE to try these!

  • Gracee Lou Dalton

    These shoes look so comfortable, and they are stylish! It’s hard to find a shoe that is comfortable, cute, and you can still do everything you need. Plus they seem to last forever because they are so well made!

  • Bradley Bennett

    I have the newest version of the sandals, wore them to Disneyland, and crazy hikes in Hawaii. I actually wore them in HANA last week! Can we still win the ipari hanas?

  • Adam FURR DOGG Swanson

    70,000 entries! That is a lot of people, congrats on the continued success of your brand. I remember when it was cherry and paracord, lol.
    I’ll keep checking back for the winning comments ?

  • Marc Stev

    These shoes are so comfy ! I love them !!!!!!

  • Sean Baas

    Whoa whoa whoa!!!

  • Laurie Meira

    the design of those shoes rule!! love love love my z treks . . .will have to wait for income tax to buy a pair of the Ipari Hana!!! time for you to design a kids line!!!

  • Joh

    Where are they made?

    • a) Different components from different places
      b) What are you looking to learn from knowing the manufacturing locations? We’ve found that it’s often easier to answer *that* question rather than just give a list of locations.

      For example, people sometimes want to know if the factory workers are well treated and well paid… and ours are. We’re at the factories 4-7 times per year and work with factories that go through EXTENSIVE investigations from the multi-billion dollar companies for which they also produce products.

  • Sarah Overmier-Ernest

    Baby needs a new pair of shoes! (I’m baby!) My dog ate my laces.

  • Raymond Hawkins

    First off, I LOVE my Hana’s! I’m having a small issue though. The top of the heel keeps rubbing my heel and giving me blisters. I had originally ordered a half size smaller, but they pressed on the ends of my toes and squeezed the width of my feet a bit (I have very wide feet). Has anyone else dealt with this or do you have any suggestions?

  • Russell Steed

    These would be an awesome addition to minimalist shoe collection.

  • Ollin

    I’ve been waiting for the comments results anxiously (I haven’t closed this window all this time), and patiently (1500+ comments to read and decide on is a lot, indeed!).

    • OH! I thought we published those!

      I’ll have to check on it when I get back into the office on Monday.

      -Steven

      • Ollin

        hola, Steven
        hope you had a lovely out-off-office time
        I suppose that if my comments had been selected I would have been notified by e-mail
        but I just want to make sure
        do let me know which three commenters were selected
        thank you
        keep on moving!

        • No, it’s that I’ve had a MAJOR flu since last week and have barely been out of bed. Details when they arise… when I can arise 😉
