Amuri Venture Ready-to-Wear Men's Barefoot Sandals - 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

This is true

These sandals are great!
But walking barefoot is not the same, you have to adapt the feeling of a thong between your toes, and take care of the steps, because It's easy to forget that you have something under your feet, maybe the same case what Paul Lyman said a few posts ago.

Way above expectations!!!

My new Venture sandals are terrific! I absolutely love them. They are very comfortable and easy to put on. I was surprised at how well the heel cup works for keeping out little pebbles. It also works well when driving since it covers my heel while my foot is on the gas pedal. It is amazing how natural they feel and how well they stay in place. I could not be happier with my purchase.

Really Great w/ A bit of Tweaking

I just got mine the other day (super excited) and was really hoping that the toe piece or thong part wouldn't bother my toes but it did. After a day or so of walking and running around I decided that the silicone rubber piece that goes in between your toes was killing me and it really hurt. At first I thought I'd just have to get used to it but after a while decided to modify( replaced the toe piece with thin paracord and cut the heel cup thing off.).Now they fit really good and I love them.

I Love too weightlift barefooted!!!

I have the Amuri Venture. They are by far the lightest and closest to barefoot you can get without being barefoot. Once you figure out how to adjust the straps they're comfortable and the plastic toe piece stops hurting your toes. But because of the way I walk (no fault of the shoe), the splash guard rubs my heel on long walks. I will definitely buy the do-it-yourself kit next pair as all the other designs have the splash guard.

Thanks for designing a great product.

So far, happy feet!

I've had my sandals for a couple weeks now and I love them. The second I leave work, the dress shoes come off and these go on.
In the past I was suffering from Plantar Facititis, and while it has been progressively getting better over time, I expected it to come back full blown when I got these. Not the case. My feet feel stronger than they have in a long time. I use them for outdoor activities such as hiking and running on grass, and indoors at the gym when doing squats, deadlifts or any movements where my feet are the point of contact.
So far so good.

Great sandals

Shipping was fast. Sandals are great. I had to exchange for a size up. So measure your feet and not guess, like me.
Once you get that perfect fit with a little tweaking they become that, perfect. Easy on, easy off. All day comfort.

Perfect

It took a week for my toes to get use to having something between them. But after that they feel absolutely perfect. Really and truly barefoot shoes!

4 days in & in love

I couldn't be happier with these sandals. I'm only 4 days into wearing them but I have already, literally, forgotten that I was wearing them. I know I forgot I was wearing them because my wife asked why I still had them on in the house. I've been a barefoot enthusiast since 2012 and have a hard time finding footwear that is low enough in price and durable enough for everyday and everything use.

I'm also a huge fan of the Venture Bros. animated series which is why I chose the Venture over the Cloud. I do a lot of hiking in the Arizona desert and mountains so I also needed something a bit more durable and was worried the Cloud wouldn't hold up as well for as long.

I'm stoked to have a pair! Thanks Xero!

In Search..

I own more sandals than shoes. People make fun of me for wearing sandals all the time, even during most of our Michigan winters (with split socks). I am always looking for the perfect sandal. So far, these are the closest I have come. I don't have a lot of miles on them yet, but I have high hopes that they will hold up as "advertised".

Great Sandals and Amazing Costumer Service!

When I first ordered these they seemed to be a size too small, so I called costumer service and spoke with Janice. Janice was extremely helpful and friendly. She offered to evaluate how the sandals seemed to fit using pictures of them on my feet over email. When we decided a size up might work better she allowed me to hold on to the smaller ones while I waited for the size up to arrive, so that I could compare them side by side. When the size up arrived they were a perfect fit so I returned the smaller ones. This was some of the best costumer service I have ever had anywhere!!

The sandals themselves are great for walking and general everyday wear. It is very easy to adjust the straps to get them to fit perfectly on your feet. That being said there are a few potential downsides. For one, the sole is quite hard and makes me feel like I am walking on a hard surface even when I am on carpet. The sandals also do not function well for agility or quick side to side movements. That being said, these are still awesome barefoot sandals and well worth the $40!!

Amazing!

These shoes got to me in two days flat across the country, so gold star for that!
These shoes are solid! They walk and run well, i feel like i really am barefoot (obviously minus the strap, but its super comfy!). These shoes allow me to practically be barefoot in public without risk of nasty foot stuff; they are a dream come true!

So far, so good

I received these a week ago (Standard shipping got them to me in 2 business days). It's been awhile since I truly ran barefoot, so I decided it'd be best to wear them while walking about. It wasn't until earlier this week when my training program called for a 0-20 minute easy run that I determined a test drive was in order. I set out planning 10 minutes to keep it slow and steady due to the time away from barefoot running and the rainy weather. I felt so good on the road that I decided 15 minutes would be fine. I had no major issues with my feet or joints hurting. The straps didn't seem to bother me too much aside from the heel flapping a bit (may just need to reassess the current fit of my straps). My feet did feel a bit sore when I finished the run, but I was able to complete a 30 minute run the very next day without any issues (in my New Balance Minimus Road Zeroes that I've been training on). Beyond the footwear, I greatly appreciate the community feeling I get with the Zero Shoes creators and community.

quite happy

Probably more like 4.5 stars. Very happy both with my Amuri Venture's and with the customer service I've received from Xero Shoes. In fact, "customer" doesn't feel quite like the right word. It feels more like I've joined a club with a mission, and Xero Shoes takes really good care of their fellow club members.

I was a little concerned at first about the toe post, but I've learned that when the toe post is bothering me, it's because I'm not walking with proper posture (I'm sliding rather than planting and balancing), so I've come to really appreciate the toe post.

The reason I didn't give a 5-star review is because I went on a 5-hour hike a couple weeks after getting my sandals. I had done a fair amount of walking in them, and on this hike I did about 2.5 hours barefoot and 2.5 hours in the Amuri Ventures. By the end of the hike, the soles of my feet, especially around the heels, had gotten pretty tender from friction with the sandal. I imagine that my feet just have to get used to them. Don't know if anyone else has had this problem.

Buy these, go outside.

You know how some things you find and like, really like then they quit making them and you never get that again? This sandal is one of those, Im on my third pair, and bought some for friends as well. I buy them one size smaller is the only note, they come a little on the big size and I had to trim them on the first pair.

I live on a farm, I wear these for a lot of activity's and they are always there if I want to take off and loose the boots, full corks, steel toes, or just take a walk.

I got into these when I had to re shape the way my Son was walking, everyone thought he had flat feet like his mother, but he was just copying her walk. We put a lot of miles into these just walking and very light running with care on different surfaces. His arches came up, now he is one of the fastest kids on his track team. This took years, care and attention, but these shoes were a part of it.
Thank You.

Great casual shoes

I use these as casual shoes around. I grew up mostly barefoot, these feel like that but have protection against sharp things. It feels like a very lightweight flipflop, but with the heel strap it stays on my foot better. Excellent choice for a minimalist shoe. My first pair got stepped on as I was walking and the side got torn out. You can damage these, but for me they're pretty reliable.

Deaf customer here!

Deaf or not, we all have a pair of feet to walk. After I received my xero shoes and I played disc golf with my friends right away. I haven't felt so comfortable and often I almost forgot that I'm wearing xero shoes! It was nice feeling the grass through my toes without worrying about stepping on sharp objects!

Stop thinking about it and just buy them already!

I haven't been able to wear my sandals very much as of yet due to cold weather in the Northeast (New England region). But here is my experience.

1. The straps are soft to my feet. I was worried they'd be abrassive, but they're very pleasant.
2. The straps take some adjusting. Though they're fully adjustable, some aspects such as getting the toe post in a precise direction is hard. The toe post itself caused me some minor pain against my 2nd big toe. Luckily the support emails that went back and forth was very useful. I was given advice on how to adjust the straps for my particular issue, and it worked! No more pain. I was very impressed with the sincere caring tone from the support person, who gave me various options. She even had me send pics of my feet so she could ensure she gave me personalized support. That was totally awesome! In the end, I agree w/ other posts here that these sandals will take some getting used to.
3. The feeling is almost like being barefoot. The foot is more exposed to open air than even flip flops!
4. The rubber is very hard and made to withstand abuse. I can't wait to where these on trails and for basic street walking in the big city. If you like being barefoot as much as possible, like in your home, then you'll really appreciate the fact that there's Xero arch support, none, nada. That's the way I like it. As long as you adjust the straps so that the soles stay fairly firm against the bottom of your foot, you'll almost forget you're wearing sandals.
5. The tread on the bottom is obviously made for some serious forward/backward traction. And unlike flip flops, they'll stay on your feet.

So, as I get more comfortable with these, perhaps my 4-star rating will go up to 5 stars. For now, I'd like to reserve that last star because I still need more experience wearing them. Also, consider that these are my first ever "minimalist" sandals.

A-W-E-S-O-M-E

These running sandals are incredible. I ran the other evening on the track and if I had not had those, my feet would be cut to shreds. Granted, I have only used them once, but I don't have any issues with them thus far.

Will definitely order another pair once these wear out.

“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!"
