Amuri Cloud - Men's Barefoot Sandal - Xero Shoes

Cloud/Venture Size Guide

Get the right size for your Amuri Cloud and Venture

Barefoot sandals don’t fit the same way as shoes, or other sandals. Just because you wear, say, a size 10 Nike Free, that doesn’t mean you’ll wear a size 10 Amuri Cloud or Venture (and, I’m willing to bet you have other shoes that are 9.5 or 10.5… so are you really a 10 😉 ?)

By following the instructions below, you’ll get the correct fit.

NOTE: Please follow these instructions to get the right fit

3 Simple Steps to the Correct Fit

1) Measure your foot

Measure your feet for huarache barefoot sandals

  • Place a piece of paper against a wall (if you have VERY large feet, use a piece of newspaper.
  • Place your foot on the paper, with your heel against the wall.
  • Make a mark on the paper at the furthest point away from the wall… this will either be just in front of your big toe or second toe
  • Take a ruler and measure from the edge of the paper to the mark you made.

Here’s a video showing the process

2. Check your measurement against the chart, below

This will give you a good idea of your size… but PLEASE follow the next step whenever possible.

3. Verify the correct fit by printing the size template and comparing it to your foot

The freedom of natural barefoot movement, with a whisper of comfort.

Feel the Freedom. Feel the Fun. Feel the World!®

Clear selection

“The most comfortable, versatile barefoot sandal your feet will ever love.”

We’ve taken our ready-to-wear Venture and added a whisper of comfort with a custom-made 3mm Barefoam™ insert in the forefoot.

This makes the Cloud even lighter and more flexible than the Venture… A men’s size 9 is only 4.6 ounces. The Amuri Cloud floats!

Some people think of the Amuri Cloud as their casual Xero Shoe, even though it’s sturdy enough to tackle a 100-mile trail ultramarathon.

Reasons you’ll love the Amuri Cloud:

  • Four fun color combinations — Coal Black soles with Charcoal, Mocha Earth soles with Black, Coal Black soles with Aquarius, and Slate soles with Lemon
  • Barefoam™ forefoot insert gives a hint of comfort, without unnecessary padding
  • Patent-pending lacing system gives you a perfect fit in seconds
  • Flatiron pattern on the Barefoam™ gives you extra grip
  • 6mm FeelTrue® outsole protects you from unpleasant surfaces without sacrificing ground feel
  • Elegant contour surrounds your foot, but doesn’t add unnecessary support
  • Ready to wear — the lacing is already done for you. Just slide in your foot and go
  • Patent-pending tensioning system — find the perfect fit in seconds, and then you can slide your Xeros on and off in a flash
  • Super soft toe post — since the huaraches-inspired lacing goes around your entire foot, you don’t feel the toe post the way you do in a flip flop or other thong sandal
  • Super STRONG toe post — won’t pull through the sole like flip flops do
  • Heel cup — keeps your heel in place, helps keep out debris, and adds a splash of color
  • Nylon Achilles strap with Silicone grip — holds on securely and comfortably
  • Elevated ankle holes — the lace never touches the ground, and so it won’t abrade
  • 5,000 mile warranty! Wear out your Amuri Clouds in under 5,000 miles and we’ll replace them for a nominal cost (details here)

Great everyday sandal

I ware the Amuri Cloud Sandal around the house and for all my daily activities. I also purchased the huarache sandals kit and after putting them together yesterday, I ran 3.3 miles in them today and loved how natural the run felt. Using these products has definitely helped me do better with my plantar faciitis since I now am building my natural foot and leg muscles and improving my running form.

There just amazing

I really like them, I've ordered them in size 12 because I like to have a little bit more rubber under my toes the only downside is that the toe pol is 1cm to far away from the heal cup...for everyday wear it's ok this way since I don't have them to tight but for running were I tighten them the heal cup becomes obsolete. So I just removed the heal cup and there now fine that way. I may try the next time size 11 but I think I won't have enough rubber under my toes for running....we will see.

So If you're like me you maybe want to have them custom made or try one size above yours and one below and keep the best fit.
I would have done the same but the shipping costs to Thailand are so ridiculous expensive to send them back and fort.

But at the end they are the best sandals I've ever owned.

Really is like walk barefoot

Once i'd correctly fit them after several tries, i have a feeling of freedom I had never felt before, feeling the shapes and textures like I was not wearing anything on my feet, but having them protected. The other day I stepped on a piece of sharp glass without realizing, the piece was embedded in the sole, but my foot nothing happened. Until I realized, I thought it was a small stone stuck between my foot and the sole.

They are also fixing the problems that I have on my feet. I sprained both ankles long ago and had posture problems since then. Wearing these ones i'm recovering stability and feel my walk much better.

I always had the desire to be barefoot all the time, but I didn't know how to begin to do that, especially outside. Wearing my Clouds in the street i think i'm not wearing any shoes, even when I'm standing in front of a mirror and look at my feet, I just think I'm barefoot and wearing anklets. That makes me feel very happy with myself. And thanks to that i started to be barefoot all the time in my house, improving my health in the process.

I am very grateful to this wonderful product and this great company. It has helped me a lot with my wellness.

Fantastic everyday sandals and look good too

This is my second pair of Xeros- I also have the Z trek. Once you work out your size, everything falls into place. Fantastic support from Xero to help with that issue! The Amuri Cloud is super comfortable and easily adjustable. Great product, particularly for transitioning to a more minimal style of sandal.

Good everyday comfort

I've had several pairs of Xero's or Invisible shoes over the years and these are the most comfortable for everyday use. They're fine for running on smooth surfaces but be aware that the sole is very thin underneath the softer material of the Clouds upper (I use my Z-trek's or Ventures for trail running). Also, I went up one size for my second pair of Clouds after experiencing some irritation (blister when running in the wet) from the area where the softer material meets the harder sole material. Going up one size allows my foot to be entirely on he softer material and not overlap onto the harder edge.

One huarache to rule them all!!!

A huarache is really all about the sole and laces, and as huarache style sandals go, Xero Shoes has always had the best, with great ground feel and comfort in their soles. I was a bit skeptical about the "cloud" foam, but just had to try such a great looking "upgrade" (as well as the heel "cup"). I must say that, even though I haven't run in them yet (as I just got them), they feel amazingly comfortable. I was a bit apprehensive about the sizing, considering I'm between two sizes and both templates kind of looked right, but I'm glad I went for the bigger one as the foot falls into perfect placement for the foam and the "cup". (Thank you Stephen for the sizing video.)

The name is certainly appropriate as they feel a bit like walking on a cloud (a barefoot cloud, but a cloud nonetheless), though that might come at a small sacrifice to ground feel. I imagine it could also be that the foam gives greater stability to the sole. Regardless, it's absurdly comfortable, super thin, and hasn't accidentally bent forward like other ultra-thin huaraches, which is great. The new lacing system is also fabulous, making it super easy to dial in a comfortable fit right away. Did I mention they were comfortable?

What can I say, I'm impressed with the Amuri Cloud. It's thin, it's comfortable, it fits, it looks really nice and feels of a very high quality. The cloud comfort will certainly appeal to those looking for a more casual, "barefoot" huarache, but also to those who just want a single, do everything huarache. In that regard, I think Xero Shoes has finally achieved the perfect, all-around, huarache-style sandal, and I can't wait to wear the hell out of them.

One Modification and they are Perfect

I received my Amuri Clouds last week and was excited to try them out. When I first put them on, I immediately noticed the toe post. I had read many reviews that said you would get used to it, so I strapped them on and went out for a run. It was just a quick 2 mile run, but I had major discomfort throughout the run from the toe post. I stopped and readjusted the sandals multiple times, but to no avail. Everything else about the shoes were fantastic. The ground feel was superb, I loved the way my toes breathed and were not "trapped" in a shoe, and the texture of the top of the sandals were more comfortable than anticipated....I just couldn't stand the toe post. I decided to wear them to work the next day to see if I could break them in, but to no avail.

In a last ditch effort, I reached out to Xero customer service and they said that they could send me a "lace loop" to replace the plastic toe post. I said I'd be willing to give it a shot (fantastic customer service by the way). It took a few minutes to relace the sandals (excellent instructions from the crew at Xero) and I put them back on. Instant relief of the toe post issue!!! They felt like completely different sandals.

My only issue now is that I cut away the heel cup (I found that b/c I was in-between sizes, my foot was landing on the edge of the heel cup) but now the heel is just slightly too small. Not a deal breaker for me though b/c I really like the freedom that comes from the sandal. Maybe they will make a version with no heel cup in the future??

If you have tried these (or are thinking about trying them) but can't get over the toe post, give the lace toe post a shot, it is well worth the extra effort for the added comfort!!

(NOTE from XERO -- For what it's worth... from what you described it's *possible* that you have the wrong size... and it's *possible* that you laced things in a way that caused issues with the toe post... and even though the lace bead addressed things for you, it's also highly likely that the actual issue is "overstriding," which forces your foot into the thong -- and that this is less of an issue with the lace bead vs. the toe post. Do with that what you will ;-) ).

Quality...

From the template you download to size your foot to the completion of the first run, money well spent on a quality product. Shipment was faster than what one is normally accustomed to, the product is well packaged, but the first great surprise is the quality of the shoe. I know "solid" is not a word one would associate with barefoot sandals but that is what this product is. The materials, the design, and the workmanship all are top drawer. Normal footwear causes some lateral straining on my knee when I run and I wanted to see if this would change that. It did. No strains, no moments of uncertainty about my knee, just smooth, steady, running. If you are thinking about jumping into the barefoot running gig, this is the place to start...

I really like these shoes

I bought a pair of adventure sandals in the summer and enjoyed them. I decided recently to replace a pair of my Reefer thongs with the Amuri Cloud. I have not been disappointed. They are comfortable, durable and easy to slip on. I like the personal touch from the owners and feel like a part of the Xeroshoes family. You folks make a great product!

Great Sandals!

I've been running in the do-it-yourself sandals for several years. Thought I would add the Clouds. They might be the most comfortable footwear I've ever tried. I'll stick to my do-it-yourself pair for running, but these are great for everyday. Fit is great. Straps are great. Couldn't be happier with these.

“There is nothing I enjoy more than putting on my Xero Shoes and running on trails. My feet have gotten much stronger. And the other day I actually snuck up on a deer!"
