Which Xero Shoes Are Right For Me?

People all around the world wear Xero Shoes for everything from a walk on the beach to a hike in the woods, from working out to running ultra marathons.

These questions will help you decide which Xero Shoes are right for you:

  1. Do you want shoes or sandals? For shoes, the choice is simple:
    1. The Prio is our running/fitness shoe shoe.
    2. The TerraFlex is our running/hiking/trail shoe (more grip and durability than the Prio).
    3. The DayLite Hiker is our casual hiking boot.
    4. The Hana and Lena are our casual canvas shoes.
    5. And the Coalton is a more office-friendly, fashionable shoe.

For sandals, keep going…

  1. What will you do in your Xeros? If you’re spending a lot of time on aggressive trails, you’ll want more protection. If you’re on roads, pretty much any of our products will be great for you.
  2. Do you want to make your own sandals with one of our do-it-yourself kits, or do you want something ready-to-wear?
  3. Do you like the “thong” style, or the “sport sandal” style with nothing between your toes? Keep in mind that Xero Shoes are not flip flops… because the “huarache-inspired” lacing system holds all the way around your foot, you don’t get the pressure points associated with flip flops.
  4. How much “barefoot” feeling do you want? Not surprisingly, the thinner sandals give you more ground feel and more of a barefoot experience.
