How to Measure your Feet for Xero Shoes DIY kits

Here’s a quick video showing you how to measure your feet and get the correct size for your Xero Shoes DIY sandal kits.

In short, here’s what you do:

  1. Place a piece of paper against a wall (if you have VERY large feet, use a piece of newspaper)
  2. Place your foot on the paper, with your heel against the wall
  3. 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
  4. Take a ruler and measure from the edge of the paper to the mark you made.

  1. I love how I can see your tan line from the shoes! Haha! You’re definitely a supporter of your own product.

    1. With VERY few exceptions, I’ve been in Xeros non-stop since August 2009 🙂

      1. I unfortunately did not use this method to measure my feet (my own fault) and ended up ordering too small….my heels hang over 🙁

  2. You obviously have not noticed the Amuri line. However, I like most people prefer the ‘do it yourself’ kit. Maybe it is the [Ikea effect]( If it is, I certainly hope Steven is able to build an empire just as Ikea has – because I intend to purchase and Xero Shoes for the rest of my life.

    1. I agree. Steven contacted me shortly after my post and provided excellent customer service. I have been a dedicated consumer and strong supporter of Xero Shoes ever since. I even recommended them in a subsequent edition of my book.
