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 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.

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).

Melbourne shoes

The Melbourne shoes are my favorites of the four pair of zero shoes I bought two months ago. They took a bit to wear in. However once worn in....man! Love em. Zero shoes have saved my back and feet!

Durable

I wanted a pair of dress shoes which were minimalist in nature. These shoes are extremely comfortable. It’s been about six months and I am very pleased with the durability of these shoes.

Love LOVE LOVE EM!

The break in period was a bit longer but they’re now that familiar Xero feel. And they’re great with wool socks in the colder weather.

Melbourne Boots

These boots are better than I expected. Incredibly comfortable, very soft, pliable leather, they look fantastic - just be careful not to pull too hard on the back tabs as my tabs ripped off - but being an Australian, I was used to pulling on Blundstone boots all my life, which could probably support the weight of a truck with their pull on tabs. But it doesn’t matter, user error and I will be buying another pair of these, I bought them in brown, and I’ll be getting a black pair to go with them. Excellent boots!

Not a good fit

Good quality construction, but does not fit well on the ankle.

The shoes are very well made, however, the shape did not work for me. My foot is long and skinny so the shoe is way to wide for my foot. This kind of shoe should be snug. Unfortunately, they are also about 1/2 size too small so I am not at all able to enjoy them. 🙁

Wear Them Every Day

Great shoes. I needed something that looked a little nicer for work and these fit the bill. I am in them all day 5 days a week and they are great. At the very beginning the fit felt a little off, but they formed to my feet in a couple of days.

Great, but may not need the half size down.

I was so excited to finally get these shoes after loving the Prio’s. I immediately tried to order these to replace my vivobarefoot laced boots. Unfortunately my size 8.5 was out. When they finally came online, I noticed it said that they run about a half size too big, so even though the 8.5 Prio’s fit me perfectly I decided to order 8’s. Turned out to be a mistake. The 8’s are the exact size of my foot, with the big toe touching the front of the shoe. So by exact, it feels molded to my foot, but without any play; meaning if I’m standing still it might be okay, but as soon as I move there’s rubbing. I would say this shoe is true to size assuming an 8.5 isn’t too loose. Unfortunately, 8.5 is sold out again, so I’ll have to wait again for them to get back in stock. I recommend either getting both sizes and returning the whichever doesn’t fit as they seem to be in high demand; or start with your true size or the size of your Prio’s.
