The Venture sandal fits true to size.*

Since the foot is three-dimensional, any two-dimensional measuring tool, such as a ruler or Brannock device®, can only approximate your true shoe size. Manufacturers model their shoes on different foot shapes, so sizing may vary accordingly.

*Please note our sizing recommendations are based on customer feedback and do not ensure a proper fit.

Points to consider for sizing:

  • The Venture sandal is a unisex style. For example a men’s 7 is the same exact shoe as a women’s 8.
  • The sole of the Venture is very thin and flexible. We recommend a snug fit for this style.

Product Description

The Venture has been discontinued, so you may not find the size and color you want. We will not be restocking the Venture. Check out the new Genesis here!

Start enjoying your Xero Shoes just moments after they arrive in your mailbox. Unlike our DIY kits, the Venture is 100% ready-to-wear.

Why you’ll love the Venture:

  • Our exclusive FeelTrue® rubber outsoles, the only sole material made specifically for barefoot sandals. 5.5mm thick for great ground feel with the protection you want
  • Elegant contour to hold your foot, but without unnecessary support
  • Pre-laced — just slide in your foot and go
  • Patent-pending tension adjustment system — find the perfect fit in seconds, and then you can slide your Xeros on and off in a flash.
  • Super soft toe loop — since the huaraches-inspired lacing goes around your entire foot, you don’t feel the toe loop the way you do in a flip flop or other thong sandal
  • Super STRONG toe loop — won’t pull through the sole like flip flops do
  • Heel cup — keeps your heel in place, helps keep out debris, and adds a splash of color
  • Nylon Achilles strap with Silicone grip — holds on securely and comfortably
  • Elevated ankle holes — the lace never touches the ground, and so it won’t abrade
  • Vegan-friendly
  • Latex-free
  • 5,000 mile sole warranty! Wear out your Ventures in under 5,000 miles and we’ll replace them for the cost of shipping and handling (details here)
