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.

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.

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).

Too Small

I ordered my regular size, going against the recommendation on the site to size this particular boot down. The shoes were extremely small and did not fit at all. I do have high volume feet, which may have added to the problem, but I could not get them on at all, even with sheer socks on. Look and feel was nice, but I couldn't even do a test walk in my apartment to go further. Would recommend contacting support to make sure your size is right for your feet.

Needs to be tighter around ankle

Nice shoe. Does not hold the midfoot/arch very well. Too loose so the toes push forward to the end of the toe box more than they should

Modern tech moccasin

Great boot. Closest feel to a moccasin that I’ve found and has so much durability. Will be purchasing another pair in the future. Hope you continue to produce this style

Xero Melbourne

I am very happy with my Xero Melbournes. I have been wearing them for 3 months now. There was no breaking in necessary because they were very pliable and soft right out of the box. I typically wear size 14 shoes and so I ordered the Melbournes in size 14. They fit great, lots of toe room. The leather smells great and is very soft. The leather bends and conforms to my feet very well. These shoes are extremely comfortable. I am a big fan of the zero drop soles. I love the simplicity, yet extreme comfort of the soles of this shoe. When I wear the Melbournes all day long, they give me the proper amount of comfort and support, without going overboard. Usually, when I wear other branded shoes (non-Xero) that have thick, obnoxious soles that feel like I’m wearing pillows, those shoes feel great at first. But then, after a few hours, those non-Xero branded shoes’ nostalgia wears off, and they are no longer comfortable. Once I remove the thick soled, non-Xero branded shoes from my feet, I end up with a limp while I’m barefoot around the house. With the Melbournes, I have a completely different experience. Once I remove the Melbournes from my feet, my feet remain feeling great while walking around my house barefoot. It’s as if the Xero Melbournes are training my feet to withstand the impact of the natural ground. The Melbournes are basically medicine for my feet. I do a daily 4 mile run in my Xero HFS shoes, and then switch into the Melbournes for my daily wear. The Melbournes look great in jeans. They are easy to get on and off because of the elastic on the side of the shoe. I can’t wait to try out more Xero shoes!

Good overall, some problems with details

I’m pleased overall with my Melbourne boots. The fit, functionality, comfort and looks are all outstanding. Two details in particular could be improved. The metal buckles on the straps are stamped out of thin gauge metal and are quite fragile. I lost one when it fell apart very early on. I lashed the straps together with thin paracord and the difference is hard to notice unless you’re looking for it. I don’t at all miss the lack of adjustability. The pull-on straps are too small to get a finger in the loop or otherwise get a good hold on. Other than these things I am pleased. If you decide to make another pull-on boot I hope you consider these details.
