Which Xero Shoes is best for what I do?

Every time we release a shoe for some specific purpose, like the Speed Force for running, we find that people will do just about anything in it – from hiking to slacklining to weightlifting or using as a day to day shoe.

Trust me, we don’t want to stop you. We think it’s super cool when someone sends us a photo of them at the top of a mountain and the shoe that took them there was our casual Hana 😉

That said, if you’re looking for a specific recommendation, check out our shoe finder here, or contact us directly!
