When there’s a chill in the air, you’ll love the comfort, style, and natural, barefoot feel of the Denver.

This stylish ankle-high minimalist boot packs in 3 cold-weather foes:

  • Water-repellent canvas
  • Cozy interior lining
  • A heat-reflecting warming insole

And at only 10.6 ounces each for a men’s 9, you might stroll your way through the entire winter and forget you even have them on.

The other reasons you’ll love the Denver are its true Xero Shoes heritage:

  • A wide toe box — lets your toes spread, splay and move naturally
  • Low-to-the-ground design for balance and agility
  • Non-elevated, “zero-drop” heel for proper posture
  • The flexible sole lets your feet bend and move the way they’re supposed to
  • High-traction FeelTrue® rubber sole with dual-chevron tread for traction, backed by our 5,000 mile sole warranty
  • Lightweight construction for “barely there” comfort

Plus, the Denver is vegan-friendly; there are no animal products used in the Denver.

The winter may be no match for you in your new Denver boots. Live Life Feet First!



Men’s Sizing Tips

It’s easy to find the right Xero Shoe size for you. The Denver fits true to size, so… Buy the Denver in your usual US size*

NOTE: The Denver has a wider toe box than conventional shoes.

Based on statistics from the thousands of pairs of shoes sold across the world, we recommend ordering your regular size.

Caring for your Xero Shoes

To clean your Xero Shoes, hand wash with warm water, mild soap and allow them to air dry. We do not recommend putting them in the washing machine or dryer.


We do! We’ve sold Xero Shoes to people in more than 85 countries around the world.
We use the US Postal service to send our shipments. The cost to ship will depend on the weight of the package and the delivery speed you select; several options will be provided at checkout.

All domestic shipments come with tracking. Limited tracking is available for some first class international shipments depending on the country, and full tracking is available with all Priority Express and Express International shipments.

Though almost all of our international orders arrive without incident, we strongly advise you to select Priority Express International or Express International if you live in a country with a less reliable postal service, including (but not limited to) India, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa, and Indonesia. We cannot guarantee delivery of packages shipped using First Class International.

International delivery can take anywhere from 3 days to 8 weeks depending on how long your order spends in customs at the border.

Please note that some countries do require the payment of import duties for international shipments above a certain value. We advise you to know the import regulations of your country and understand that you will be responsible for payment of any duties and fees imposed by your government at the border.

All packages will be marked as merchandise; as a commercial shipper, we are not able to mark a package as a gift (if you’re giving Xero Shoes as a gift, that’s not the same as us sending a gift).
Also, check our Stores page. There may be a Xero Shoes dealer closer to you.

After you purchase a gift certificate, you’ll be able to enter an email address for the recipient.

You could email it to yourself and forward it at a later time if you like.

You can also take the Gift Certificate code and send it to the recipient.

Please go to Xero Shoes Return Policy page to learn about our 45-day return policy.

Tighter Fit than Normal

Just found these to be a bit tighter than the other xero shoes I have purchased.

Runs small, disappointing build quality, but warm

This was my second purchase from Xero, and I really wanted to love this boot but it fell short in a few crucial ways. First off: it runs small. I typically wear a US size 13 and have wide feet. My first purchase, a Prio, was the PERFECT shoe! Wide, roomy, and easy to put on and take off. Not so with the Denver; it was a much tighter fit and difficult to put on and take off. I chalked some of that up to being a boot and maybe needing to break it in...but I think that was just wishful thinking. I wanted to wait to write a review until I wore it out more, but I ended up hardly ever wearing them because they were such a pain to put on/take off in addition to being painful. This leads me to the second issue: build quality. The bootstraps are terrible and easily pull off the boot itself, as I saw another reviewer had mentioned. The outsole itself appears to also be detaching from the back of one of the boots, and keep in mind I have not worn these very often! I love my Prios and recently ordered a pair of Dillons and Ridgeways for myself and a pair of Konas and Prios for my wife because of just how awesome the Prios are. I'm hoping this was a one-off issue with this particular product and also wish I had returned them for a refund instead of wishing for the best, especially as these were an expensive pair of boots. If I'm able to update this review with photos later, I'll do so.


Xero Shoes

We appreciate your detailed feedback on your experience with the Denver boots. We're sorry to hear that they fell short of your expectations in several ways. It's disheartening to hear about the sizing issues and difficulties with putting them on and removing them, especially considering your positive experience with the Prio. Regarding the build quality concerns you've raised, we apologize for any inconvenience caused by the bootstraps and the detachment of the outsole. This is certainly not the level of quality we aim to deliver with our products. We truly value your loyalty to Xero Shoes and are committed to promptly addressing these issues. Please reach out to our customer support team so we can assist you further, whether it's with a replacement, refund, or any other resolution that best suits your needs.

Misplaced return

I was dissapointed. After ordering shoes International (Canada) I saw that the return policy was simply to send them back and that id get a refund when they arrived. I misplaced my tracking number and as a result never received a refund and had little to no response from the company when I reached out. I was very interested in the product but after taking a nearly $400 bath on the experience I can't recommend anyone else try it.


Xero Shoes

I'm truly sorry to hear about your disappointing experience. It's disheartening to hear that you encountered difficulties with your return and refund process, especially after having high hopes for our product. Losing track of the tracking number can indeed complicate matters, but it's our responsibility to assist you in resolving the issue promptly and efficiently. Additionally, you can reach out to our customer support team directly at [email protected]. We're committed to making things right for you and restoring your faith in our brand. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to address this issue.

Quality, but small

I love the material and style/shape of them. They are a quality product. But, they definitely run small. I got my normal size the first time, returned them, and then got a half size up and I feel like they’re still a tad small. And while the toe box definitely gives you more room than normal shoes, the width of the entire shoe doesn’t seem to give me much more room (I have wide feet)

Weird flex of boot causes bruising on toe

I love the look of these boots, and they are warm and seemingly perfect for winter, but where they flex when i walk is sharp and causes pain and bruising on the base of one of my toes. I keep hoping they will wear in more and soften up, but so far no luck.
