NEW! BORN TO RUN ZELEN AND MESA TRAIL II

Watch to learn why these running legends teamed up with Xero Shoes.

Over 13 years ago, Christopher McDougall catalyzed the barefoot- style running movement with the book Born to Run. His coach, Eric Orton, trained him for his adventures, including running with the Tarahumara in Mexico’s Copper Canyon.

But Christopher and Eric have remained “shoe brand agnostic” and have never endorsed a specific brand – until now.

“I never found a shoe company I could believe in until I put these on my feet. I’m so happy to partner with Xero Shoes, and I’m 100% confident in recommending them to anybody.” – Christopher McDougall

While co-writing Born to Run 2, they found they couldn’t stop wearing Xero Shoes because of their natural fit, feel, and comfort.

Watch the video with co-author Christopher McDougall to learn about his inspiration for writing the sequel to Born to Run, and how it can help you to unlock your ideal running form.

Christopher and Eric have partnered with Xero Shoes to create a live video training series called “Born to Run Reboot“ on the Xero Shoes Youtube channel.

Each month, the Born To Run authors answer viewers’ questions and share their hard-earned lessons about natural movement and healthy living.

The Book that Started a Movement

If you have not read the original Born to Run book, it’s a must-read for anyone interested in natural movement, maximizing performance, or just looking for a great adventured tale.

Xero Shoes President Lena Phoenix shared, “I am not a runner, but once I picked up Born to Run, I couldn’t put it down. I learned so much, had fun reading it, and it obviously changed Steven’s and my life because it helped inspire us to start Xero Shoes.”

Success!

Warranty Info

When people ask, “How long will my Xero Shoes last?” we say, “We don’t know, but it’s going to be a long, long time!”

That’s why we offer this 5,000 mile sole warranty.

If you wear your FeelTrue® outsoles (or FeelTrue® section of Z-Trail) down to less than 1mm thick at the ball or heel of the foot (not an edge), we’ll replace them with the same product for the following price:

60% off MSRP (full, non-sale, listed, retail price) for the product, plus shipping.

We also offer a 24 Month Manufacturing Warranty, which covers defects and flaws that may happen in the first two years. We will offer a free replacement for orders that qualify.

Please include a photo of the issue and your current shipping address.
For closed toed shoes, please include another photo of the tongue tag.

If you have a manufacturing concern, please email our Customer Happiness team at [email protected] with photos of the issue and your order number.
