Caring for your Melbourne Shoes

Since the Melbourne has a leather upper, it’s a good idea to use a leather conditioner every few months, or as needed if the leather looks dry or dull.

To clean your Melbournes, use any commercially available leather cleaner and follow up with a leather conditioner. For tough spots, gently scrub with a warm, damp cloth or damp soft bristle brush and allow to air dry. Then follow up with a leather conditioner.

WARNING: It is possible to over-condition, which may result in the leather looking and feeling greasy or oily.

Very impressed with these!

I love them! They look to be very well made and I like their warranty…time will tell but I have confidence. Xero Shoes appears to make quality products and they stand behind what they sell with great customer service, something that is difficult to find these days. My Melbournes look better in person than they do in pictures which is unusual. I’m completely sold! LOL

Disappointed, but not really

I have two pairs of Hanas and a pair of DYI sandals for a while now… I live in my Xero shoes. The instant I tried on the Melbournes I was pretty disappointed with how the soles felt. I went back to the box and found the insert that stated… If you want the true barefoot experience remove the inserts… SMH! I remove the inserts and they feel amazing! Just goes to show how picky your feet can get after spending time in the right pair of shoes. Another great shoe by Xero. They are breaking in quickly and I highly recommend for anyone.

Great boot, perfect for work

Love the shoe, gets lots of comments and feels great to wear while at work. On my feet most of the day. Ankle and foot pain much better than with other shoes.

My new work shoe

I'm really loving these Melbourne's. As the review title states, these really have become my near-daily casual and semi-dress black shoe. In fact, I love them so much I just bought another pair in brown! Performance: I'm on my feet a lot at work, and these boots keep my feet comfortable and pain free all day long. I had to break out my glossy, heeled dress shoes for a recent inspection. Wow, did my feet ache after three long days of standing and walking! I also had the chance to wear my Melbournes in a small amount of snow and ice recently. I was happy to find the leather kept my feet dry and protected against the cold wind. The Melbourne's leather is good quality and cleans up easily when scuffed. Fit: I wear size 10 in the Speed Force, Cloud, and Z-Trek, while a size 9.5 in the Alston. Originally purchased a size 10 during the launch event. Xero's note about running a little large is true -- it was too roomy and slid around on my foot. Even with an exchange for a 9.5, I'm still cinching the huarache strap as much as I can. Take this as you will -- I like a snug fit. The elastic pieces still allow my feet to slip in and out, but only with help; the boots do not move around or fall off unaided. Customer experience: Customer service was great. I ordered during launch day, and received my pair within 4 business days. Unfortunately, I had to go through an exchange. I know they (Xero) were busy with the Fall launch, but still got back to me with my exchange within the next week. These guys and gals are good!

Good for professional / casual use.

Good for wearing in the office and out at client sites in a professional setting. It's good to still retain the benefits of a minimal shoe, with the ability to go from the office to long walks. The sizing guide on the product page was correct for me.

Will be my “go to” shoes this Fall

Loving these boots. I’ve been wanting to get some minimalist flat boots to replace my Australian slip ons for several years and they finally did it! Thanks!

My Xero love affair

My tai chi instructor was wearing these super comfy (and exercise appropriate) shoes and I asked about them. He said he has never found a better shoe for being grounded for martial arts and to go up a size. So I bought my first pair - the Hana. Amazing. Now I have the leather ones and the hemp ones and a pair of the Melbourne coming. The key thing is the size difference. Just note.
