Product Description

“I hated the way hiking boots looked and felt… until I found these. My feet stay protected, and I LOVE the style.” Jess K.

RIDGEWAY – Look Good On and Off the Trail

Combine the allure of retro style with cutting-edge barefoot-friendly technology, and you get the Ridgeway – a hiking boot with a rugged canvas upper with suede accents. It’s ready to conquer technical trails with friends and comfortable enough to enjoy a beer afterward.

women's barefoot shoes

Your Wet Weather Companion

The Ridgeway is not just stylish and comfortable; it’s also waterproof, with a fully seam-sealed inner bootie, gusseted tongue, and waterproof membrane.

A “Midsole Illusion”

It might look like the Ridgeway has a thick midsole. Actually, we took our embedded TrailFoam layer (that evens out the bumps) and wrapped it around the upper giving the illusion of thickness. You’ll still enjoy the flexibility and natural movement you expect from Xero Shoes.

Grippy and Lightweight

Confidently navigate the terrain with an aggressive trail-ready lugged outsole.

At just 11.5 oz. (W7), the Ridgeway is lighter than most technical boots, but even lighter than many running shoes.

Embrace brisk mountain mornings, wet trails, or cozy evenings by the fire with the confidence that your Ridgeway boots have your back.

 

WE MAKE HIKING SHOES SO COMFORTABLE, YOU’LL FORGET THEY’RE EVEN ON.

If your feet don’t feel as good at the end of the day as they did in the beginning, you haven’t tried the Ridgeway.

Life-changing comfort and superior performance come from letting your feet do what’s natural – bend, move, flex and feel.

All Xero Shoes feature a wider, foot-shaped toe box that lets your toes spread and relax, a non-elevated “zero drop” heel for proper posture, low-to-the-ground design for perfect balance and agility, and a flexible sole that gives you “just right” protection so you can bend, move, flex, and Live Life Feet First!

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.

Sizing

I purchased a size 8 and really needed an 8 1/2 … they were not available in that size so I do not have them… I have the xero winter boots and absolutely love them… I can walk for miles and they are warm and comfortable… amazing !!!

Nice Boot!

I love this retro look and I am a huge fan of the mustard yellow color with the navy blue. I notice that these feel a bit more like a true hiking boot than my Mid Scrambler boots by Xero. They used a rubber at the toe tips and heel on the sole that is more dense, so there's a subtle click when I walk, which I really like. They look great with Yoga pants and I wear them around town. They also keep my feet warmer than my slippers and we're having a very cold winter here in AR, so I also wear them at home. Overall, they feel sturdy and well made, are very comfortable for my wide feet with bunions. I would highly recommend them. My only reason for docking a star is that they have that little tipped square logo patch made of suede on the side with the couple slits on it that Xero shoes will often run a piece of cotton twill tape through in an inverted "V" shape, usually in a contrasting color. I think that is a really nice touch of detailing that I would've liked to see on these in that yummy mustard yellow color. Maybe they couldn't find the right shade in that material or consciously decided to skip it, but either way, I think it would've looked better to add it in.

Sizing is wrong

I bought the Kelso in 7.5 sneakers and they fit great. Then bought these boots in the same size and they are too small. My toes are stubbing up against the front of the boot. They therefore are not comfortable for me. Too small.
