How to Make Your Own Xero Sandals


To make your own sandals, you’ll measure your foot to get the perfect size outsole, you’ll punch the toe hole with our included hollow punch. If you need to, you can trim the sole with a pair of kitchen scissors. Then use one of our simple lacing styles that we’ll show you.Or, if you like, you can order a custom-made pair of Xero Shoes, send us a tracing of your foot and we’ll do all the work.

Deciding between 4mm Connect and 6mm Contact? The 4mm Connect outsoles give you the closest-to-barefoot feeling. The 6mm Contact still has great ground-feel, but with a bit more protection and, since it’s a bit stiffer, a slightly “smoother” ride. Check out this video for more about Connect vs. Contact.

Choose between 4mm Connect & 6mm Contact


The important question is really just:
How much barefoot feel do you want?
The 4mm Connect is the closest thing you’ll get to barefoot, but with a layer of protection. The 6mm Contact still has great ground-feel, but “smooths out the ride” a bit more. Some people prefer the 4mm on trails, because it lets them really grip the rocks and roots… others like the 6mm in that situation because it provides more protection. Similarly, some people like the 4mm on roads because it’s really like being barefoot… and others like the 6mm because it’s a bit stiffer and, therefore, makes even a smooth surface feel a bit smoother.

Get the right fit: Xero Shoes are not sold by shoe size, since shoe size is notoriously inaccurate (you probably have shoes in your closet that are different sizes, but all fit you!). Instead we ask you to measure your foot to get the correct size. Watch this video to see how.

Get the correct size
This video shows you how to measure your foot:

Since many of us wear shoes that are the wrong size, you select your Xero Shoes kit based on the actual length of your foot.
The best way measure your foot length is this: Place a piece of paper (newspaper if you have big feet) against a wall, stand on the paper with your heel lightly touching the wall, make a mark in line with the front of your foot (your first or second toe), and then measure the distance from the edge of the paper to that mark. Do not simply step on a ruler to measure since the angle that you’ll be looking at rarely gives an accurate measurement.NOTE: The actual sole you’ll get is 1/2″ (13mm) bigger than the measurement. If you order, say, the “Up to 10 inch”, the sole you’ll receive is 10.5″ long. But, DO NOT order a size smaller than your foot measurement! If your foot is, say, 10 1/4″ order the size for “feet up to 10 1/2 inches”, otherwise you’ll end up with the wrong size.

  • 1 Pair of FeelTrue® rubber outsoles in your choice of thickness, color and size
  • 2 6′ polyester laces in your choice of fun colors

Love them!!!

Already so comfortable and I normally HATE having anything between my toes. Had to trim a fair bit off but I do have really narrow feet. Easy to do and sand off to neaten up. Got the toe loop for them, really like the look of them with it 🙂 Thank you!! 😀

Super versatile

Love love love this kit! I have used it for myself for a few years and just bought 3 of the smaller sizes for my kids. They love having these sandals on their feet, so easy to feel the earth, run and play like their feet are made to.

My everyday summer go to sandal

I love them. They are so comfortable once you get used to them. Wearing any other shoes doesn't feel right anymore.

Fun process to make and wear

I really like them! Was surprised by how substantial the 6 mm felt, I'd probably try the 4 mm next. Making them took about an hour and was a fun process. They look pretty cool and are very comfortable.

Great sandals!

I really like these. I'm surprised how much I like them, considering they're just a hint piece of rubber with cord straps. It was fun custom making my own sandals, and I feel like they're going to last a really long time.

Game Changer!

I have had buyer’s remorse over many things, but the Xero DIY sandals are not one of them. Instantly a fan!! I am a little disappointed with the lace color; orient blue is essentially purple. Not a big deal, the laces seem relatively easy to change out down the road. I recommend taking your time and measure everything accurately for optimal fit.

Great sandals

I love the DIY sandals. I wore the cloud sandals for for two years and enjoyed it, but the DIY sandals are better for me since I can precisely fit it to my foot. That is a great advantage, since I have flat feet with un ordinary shape. There is one issue, though. The toes knot wears out in a couple of weeks. On the other hand, fixing it is easy.
