Amuri Venture Ready-to-Wear Women'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

No issues even with Hallux Rigidus!

Having a bunion-like growth of bone spurs on top of both my big toe joints severely limits the kind of shoes I can still wear, mainly a well-known canvas slip-on shoe which are really hot in the summer. I heard the Minimalists podcast where an audience member asked what kind of shoe one of the speakers was wearing which led me to your awesome website! Not being a runner I ordered these simple sandals in hopes of possibly getting some joint pain relief. I am amazed these shoes did not bother me at all! I did overdo it walking my neighborhood recently (even after watching your videos stating to work up to longer distances LOL!) but have recovered and will be wearing them as much as possible in hopes of strengthening my feet (I even got the Toesox for winter wear)! I believe these shoes will last me many years and look forward to trying some of your other options in the future! Keep up the great work and I will spread the word on my end too!

I love the design

What is running? For me its a finding my inner strength and capability’s and letting go. These grey and black sweet xero sandals do just that.
It has taken me over 1 year to assume responsibility for the performance of my xero sandals. I have had these for more then 1 year but I didn’t use them in the winter. So I wanted to give a fair review.
I needed to be at the point where the sandals were natural for me so an extension of my stride my balance. At first I was almost tripping up in them so my review would be negative simply because I did not allow adaption and trial as to how much tension to use with the straps and to adjust to simply minimalist.
These are what I found in these incredible sandals.
Extreme durability yes I ran on some hard core terrain including small rocks and lumpy dirt but I haven’t seen so much as a scuff on them. The straps have also kept perfectly intact.
The stability...... I have found excellent. Once I made the sandals to the right tension. I am in control. I decide not to have any movement so yes they are like I am barefoot. I ran on the track and was able to run 100m strides in 18 secs no problem.
I am very happy I spent the time to love and appreciate hard work and exciting creativity to run in.
No more blisters as at first I didn’t have the sandals tight enough so I allowed the space to cause friction.
I can freely lift my feet up high when I stride and I enjoy the stability of the straps around my foot.
I love the design v catchy and comfortable.
Allow an adaption period. This is barefoot style running and many people expect too much too soon. I have changed my workouts to v short so running a 3 miler in these is great .
What would I change.... everything and nothing.lol. Seriously I would love to try out a slip on style sandal or I guess I should say a sandal with a toe covering but lighter.
I am not sure if its because I put weight on in the winter or I simply love weightless shoes but I want steve to creat a shoe for sprinting so sandal style but a toe cover and under 5 ounces please so 4 ounces!
8 out of ten for your xeros. I deducted 2 as I want 2 ounces less.

Perfect... almost. Will choose custom next time.

As someone who is mostly barefoot and wears shoes only when most necessary, I love what xero shoes is doing. I bought the Venture because I needed the extra width across the toes. My toes still ooze over the sides a little, but doesn't seem to be a problem. The lacing system is surprisingly adjustable, and it took me a bit of experimenting to get it set just right for my feet. The part that makes these shoes less than perfect for me: Even though I tighten the lacing around my foot snuggly, the shoe still feels floppy. Perhaps I haven't learned how to walk in them yet. The sole still can flip and bend in places when it gets caught on an uneven surface. I've minimized this by cutting some sole off around the arch of my foot. But I am unable to trim the heel area. The heel area is too wide for my foot, so my foot moves around. The attachment points for the heel lacing sit wide, so I am considering cutting the sole to allow those attachment loops to lift and get closer to my foot.
Customer Support has been super helpful with info and question-answering.

Need to break them in

The first time I tried these on, I hated it. I'm one of those people who can't stand flip flop thongs - however, I bought these based on the reassurance in the product description that these thongs were different and comfortable. The sole was also firm and inflexible, but it did soften and mold to my foot after the first few times wearing them. I'm fairly comfortable with wearing them now, but I found that I did need to break them in. The thong doesn't bother me so much anymore, and the sole makes it feel like walking barefoot for sure. One negative thing I noticed is that dirt gets on the inside sole really easily, and gets compacted from all the pressure of your foot - it tends to gather especially around the heel cup. I like how compact and light it is, very packable. I love the reflective stripes on the lace!! They give the shoes some bling when seen from the right angle - a very understated glamour. I need to wear them more for my final verdict, but so far, I'm pleased.

New to XeroShoes Women check out Men's page

I was debating between the Venture and the Cloud sandal. According to the template, I would wear a women's 6. There were no size 6 Clouds available so I bought the black and gray Ventures. After ordering I discovered there were Clouds available, but I needed to go to the men's page to get the corresponding size 5.

As I stated, the paper template showed I needed a size 6 with a bit of sole showing around all of my foot. When I actually tried on the sandal, I was concerned at first because my outside edges of both the big and little toes were very close to the edges of the sandal. I walked a bit on carpet and didn't feel like my toes were hitting the ground. Also when I looked at photos on the website and watched the videos about adjusting the straps and shortening the length of the strap, I noticed most models also had toes very close to the edge of the sandal. I am still walking on carpet testing the various positions to wear the straps. The videos are very helpful.

I also contacted customer service about the sizing and they were not concerned with the size. They were concerned however that the center strap was not tight to the top of my foot. I tried different positions for the straps. I had trouble getting them tight across the top of my foot and have decided the problem might be my very high arch combined with my very thin area where my toes join the rest of my foot. I'll keep trying different positions because it is so easy.

I bought a pair of the beads and I like the look of them without feeling any rubbing or discomfort.

I'm looking forward to getting outside and off the carpet.

Just for walking

I am so excited for these shoes!
I am not a runner so I cannot speak about running in them but for walking on anything--they are amazing!
I live on a farm that is rocky, muddy, grassy--you name it! They feel amazing!
I am usually a US women's size 8 shoe but ordered these in a 6 and they fit perfectly. I would suggest measuring your foot as they suggest so you don't get sandals that are too large. My foot measured 9 inches long and the 9 1/8" were perfect for me.
I am a total fan! I am going to tell all my friends about these and hope that they consider them since they are high quality and great for your feet.

Best All-Around Shoe

I am on my second pair. The first pair finally broke after a couple of years of almost daily wear (we were on a hike and were able to punch a new hole with a pocket knife and creatively tie them on to finish the hike). I wear them to work with both pants and dresses, on walks, hikes, and around town. I get "those are cute" comments all the time. I went hiking over the weekend and my co-hikers were horrified (in their uber-supportive boots) that I was going to wear a pair of sandals. I was able to go everywhere they did, didn't get the blisters they did, and had the advantage when we were rock-hopping. Because I have an enormously high instep, I have great difficulty getting shoes to fit. With these, there is no problem. Last year I bought 3 pair on sale, just in the off-chance they ever disappear. Hopefully they don't, because my nieces have already raided my stash!

Easy fit

The sole is thick enough to resist thorns or goat head seeds. Slipped shoe on, tightened back straps amd was on the go. Nice color, kind and easy customer service.

I wore mine all winter in the snow and ice and slush

This pair that I recently ordered "size 8" was a gift for someone that was in need.
That person absolutely loved this pair and set her flip flops aside.
I called last night to inquire if the sandals were worn all through out the day and was told yes that they were the most wonderful and comfortable experience. This is a honest and heart felt review as the cost of this gift is nothing compared to the value of the gratitude of the recipient .

Love these sandals!!

I bought these for my daughter who will be going to Thailand for yoga instruction. The ready to wear lightweight preformance sandal in 6oz will be the perfert sandal for her trip. Ordering was a breeze, measure your foot and follow the size chart and you cant miss!! The order arrived super fast and packaged nicely. These sandals fit perfectly, were comfortable, and very stylish...

My Everything Shoe

I have been wearing my sandals almost daily for over a year. I wear them to work, hiking, walking, on vacations, in and around the water, and pretty much everything else. I like that they don't slip on most slick surfaces and are easy to clean by hosing them off after a particularly dusty hike.

They have held up well there is some fraying on my laces, but I honestly didn't think the shoe would hold up this long. Not only do I have a great barefoot feel, but I get lots of "those are cute" comments from other people (not something that normally happens with barefoot-type shoes!).

I can't imagine every wearing any other type of sandal!

First run at 17F/-8C!

When given the opportunity in early March when the Z-Trek was launched, I eagerly ordered one of each of the three ready-to-wear/ready-to-play Xeros. I've got about 5 pairs of the DIY Xeros (when they were Invisible shoes) but I'll admit, even though I was a Girl Guide, knot tying isn't my strong suit. My new Xeros had been delivered to a friend's home in upstate NY, where they (and I) anxiously waited for a few weeks until I could get there. With our Around the Bay race coming up March 29, I wanted to wear a pair on race day, but try them out on a run or 2 before I wear them for the 15K relay. I was eager even though it was 17F/-8C. I'd run in colder but was soooooo hoping for a nice spring run.

Nevertheless, I chose the Amuri Venture as there was still lots of gravel and rock salt on the roads and I thought the thicker sole would cushion a bit. I also had some wool toe socks that I've been using with my VFF over the loooooong winter. It was a perfect pairing and a lovely, but chilly, run along the waterfront of Wilson, NY. I was out for about 45 minutes. I noted a bit of abrasion on the fabric of the socks next to the big toe, so I may wear socks during the race, just to avoid any potential blistering. The ability to slide the top strap into place closer to the toes or the ankles was fantabulous. On the run, it took a split second to adjust, as did the heel straps. Great plan to have 2 adjustments on either side of the heel. I noted they loosened a bit and had to be re-adjusted, but again, it was only a second. Great system! With the Invisibles, I had to loosen and re-tie several times on the first run until I had the right fit. The new design and innovation makes it so simple. The ground was obviously frozen so when I had to cross through a park I could REALLY "feel the world" beneath my feet. The sole was thick enough to protect but still pliable and light to feel every frozen rut. :)

The Venture run was perfect but I’m considering a test-run for the Cloud as I may wear that during the race. Its lightness and cushioning, when just wearing it around the house, makes me think I may fly in them on race day. Review to come!

The sizing was also ideal. I followed your template and although I wear a ladies’ size 9, I ordered the Size 10 as indicated, and I don’t need to trim any of the styles. I really don’t like saying I wear a Size 10; it’s a vanity thing but the colours and styles make them fun and fashionable at any size! The friend I was visiting really likes the look, cushioning and colour of the Cloud as a summer sandal which I may order for her birthday in April. I told her each shoe has a 5,000 mile warranty and I now have 40,000 miles worth of Xeros!

I love watching the progress of your shoes and your company. For that reason I wanted all three styles. I really don’t need any more but I do love the variety of styles and colours and will probably order more! I see the method in your minimalist madness!

“The shoes basically fade away, and you feel like you’re barefoot all the time. I’ve put hundreds of miles on them, both walking and running, and have never wished for another shoe."

“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!"
