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.

Seeing is believing, and I'm a believer.

The pictures just don't do these justice. The boots are well made, feel great, and actually look like a boot!!!! I have been wearing them for about a month, almost every day and the leather is getting a nice patina. The leather is soft but durable and as you wear them the look continues to improve (in my opinion) I have basically replaced my other boots with these for an everyday boot. After wearing some bigger chunky boots for a few years it is amazing how lightweight these feel and also the way my feet can actually feel the ground below. Super cool. Glad to see Xero getting more fashionable everyday options like this in their line. This boot is a game changer.

Stylish. Well made. Will order from Xero again!

So I own a pair of shoes that looks very similar to these, but is not a Xero brand shoe so it is much more narrow. I sometimes forget that I am wearing shoes when I wear these since I've never owned a shoe like it. The boots are very well made. The leather appears to be very high quality and the sole looks like it should hold up for quite some time! The sizing on these shoes I would say is aim for your true size. I have a flatter foot than most individuals and I wear a 9.5 usually. The 9.5 in Xero is a little looser than a normal boot, which is to be expected. I wear these to dress up some jeans or they go well with my business casual look at work. I've been getting asked about them every few days so I guess people notice they are nice looking boots as well!

Great product, weird sizing

As long as you DO NOT adhere to Xero's online sizing recommendation for this product you will be fine, I did so and the product was WAY too small. Try again, Xero. That said, the good is beautiful. The leather is high quality, soft, supple, and smells nice. This will definitely be a super versatile product.

Thanks for the feedback. Our current sizing recommendations are based on customer feedback. And, if sizing is incorrect, that's why we have our free domestic exchange program (https://xeroshoes.com/exchange/) The challenge, to let you know, is that sizing is often as much about personal preference as geometry. I could take 3 people with identical feet and put them in the same shoe, and they could have 3 opinions about the fit 😉

Beautiful Casual to Dressy Leather Boot for Fall and Winter

The Melbourne is a very comfortable leather boot for casual wear or even a bit dressy with khakis! Made from a Full Grain Leather Upper, and Pigskin Leather Lining, these boots are designed to please the eye and the feet! With a 7 mm stack depth using the provided insoles, and the patented 6 mm FeelTrue Rubber Sole, you will get the same minimalistic feel from all Xero shoes in a boot that shows style! Lightweight boots that look like they are much heavier, and a large toe box for added comfort as you flex your feet and feel the world! Can't wait for Fall to wear these daily!

Great looking lightweight leather boot! Initial loose fit in the heel and ankle.

Great looking boot. Ive been waiting for something like this from Xero. I plan on wearing it to work instead of my red HFS, which are a little obnoxious for business casual. They could definately be a working boot too. The sizing is accurate. I usually buy boots a size small, and I wear an 11 in the HFS and 10 in Z-Trail so I split the difference. I'm glad I only went half a size smaller with these. The length is as tolerably small as possible, but the heel and ankle are very loose. The heel straps are helpful but the stitching near the buckle limits how tight you can strap them (see pic). Because of the loose fit, the sole at the heel drops from my foot and causes me to heel strike the ground (very unlike Xero). I'm hoping that the leather forms to my foot and that this goes away. I'll write an update after a few weeks of wear. Pros: Stylish shoe, quality leather, and no extremely noticlble branding. Cons: Loose fit in heel and ankle, limited adjustment, and a thick sole (could be pro depending on use).

Love the Look

These are so slick! The only reason it's not 5 stars is because I was hoping for a bit softer of a sole. However with a harder sole you can definitely dive into many more things and environments with them if you want to change them from being a dress up boot to a worker boot. Attached is a pic of my wife and I at church while wearing them and it won't be long and I'll be bee keeping and gardening in them! Toe space is grand, leather is quality but not hot (I know, I'm in Texas!) sizing is pretty accurate compared to my normal fitting and everyone loves them. I look forward to wearing these for some time as I'm quite sure they will last!!

Undercover Hippie Dress Boot

Need a little more style but hate sacrificing comfort? The Melbournes give you all the good looks without being uncomfortable, all while offering the quality Feel True rubber soles unique to Xero Shoes. Check out my review below and the other shoes in the new fall lineup to look and feel your best when the weather gets cooler! Soles Durable, flexible Xero Shoes Feel True rubber soles are the star of this shoe. Most other brands I’ve tried for this style have crepe rubber soles that, although soft, will wear faster and attract more dirt than the clean, functional rubber unique to Xero Shoes. A thin, removable insole adds just the right amount of comfort to top off the soles. Uppers Full grain leather uppers have a beautiful color and have enough thickness to last as long as the soles beneath them. More comfortable leather is sewn on the inside that really give a luxury feel to these boots. Elastic on both sides of the ankle makes this easy to put on, but leaves a little too much room for my skinny ankles. A clean looking polyester strap with a metal buckle provides the unique fit you come to expect from Xero Shoes. Fit The Melbournes take a new route previously only available in a women’s style and offer much more comfort and spaciousness than other shoes I’ve worn from Xero Shoes. Built with extra room for thick winter socks, these shoes feel a little empty without some extra bulk around your ankles and lower calves. Going down a half size from the snugger fitting sports styles from Xero is definitely recommended. Gait As expected from all Xero Shoes, these shoes allow your feet ample room to spread out and perform as nature intended. The extra bit of sole that gives the boot its style does seems to add a little extra width than I’ve come to enjoy from the other sportier offerings from Xero. Combined with the extra space for winter socks, the shoe offers a more relaxed ride that you’d want for more rough and tumble activities but is absolutely fantastic for milling about town or other low key fall and winter outings. Uses Perfect for going out to grab a quick cup of coffee and definitely for those who love big, thick winter socks. The combination of the stretchy elastic and straps that don’t hold as much tension makes this a suboptimal choice for a long day out. However, if comfort and coziness is what you’re after these shoes will not disappoint. Pros Nice leather both inside and out Stitching is well done and looks great Outsole I love (and expect!) Cons Loose fitting upper requires thicker socks Elastic and strap design could be tighter Strap has less tension than other models Final Thoughts Previously I only thought of Xeros as a sportier brand and these are part of a new fall lineup that offers casual comfort, attractive designs and much better price points than some of the dressier shoes in my closet that I don’t bother with after converting over to zero drop, barefoot style shoes. I’m sure my wife will be thrilled that I no longer wear sneakers everywhere!

Love this boot!

Besides that this boot just looks really classic and is actually leather, I like how the zero drop is incorporated in the design. Also, the stretchy sides to get in and out are really nice. Highly recommend for those looking for a clean up, classy boot.

Classy everyday boot

I was excited when I saw xero shoes was making a riding style boot because I regularly wear this style of boot. They did not disappoint. They are very stylish with the leather. Also as a farmer in South Dakota I get a lot of questions/looks when people see me wearing my other zero shoes. These blend right in and you would never even know they are barefoot style shoe by looking at them. I also like the straps that allow you to tighten the heel if you need to. I did have to buy one size up with the Melbourne but I think that is just because the leather doesn’t have as much give as other material and I have a long big toe. Over all I would recommend the Melbourne for anyone looking for a dress boot or even for a more country style look.
